About the option 02F/B non-inductive shunt

The option 02F/B is a an non inductive shunt designed to operate over a wide bandwidth, with both AC and DC power systems, especially where phase shift phase angle is a consideration, for power calibration systems. Very useful for extending the range of Multi-meters and voltmeters. The option 02F/B can be used with phase angle meters, where phase angle between voltage-voltage, voltage-current or current-current i s required, ideal for phase protection, power meters, wattmeters, energy meters and current transformer calibration.

World-wide Traceability

All measurements made using the option 02F/B shunts are traceable to National and International standards; through the measurement standards of Powertek. The option 02F/B shunts are supplied with a certificate of conformance necessary for quality assurance standards such as IEC17025/ISO9001. Independent measurement certification is possible using UKAS, A2LA or Z540/NAVLAP certificate.
