High Current Meas, TCR for model 1651

Post by gchristi1 » February 12th, 2020, 8:52 am

For the Keithley Model 1651 50 amp shunt, there is a instruction sheet but no datasheet on your website.

What is the Temperature Coefficient of Resistance (TCR) ? I'm trying to compare performance with the Vishay Foil CSM Series of resistors.

I don't see a High Current Measurement section. This seemed to be the closest to my application question. Thank you.

The "blades" of the 1651 shunt are from an alloy called manganin.
