Fusible resistors are used in electrical circuits that may occasionally be exposed to short circuit conditions for a short period of time. They will blow out like a fuse in the event of a short circuit, protecting the circuit from damage and fire. Fusible resistors are used in motor controller systems, automobiles, power supplies, rectifiers and inverters, home appliances, power tools, and other equipment.
The fusible resistor has a protection function. When selecting, you should consider its dual performance, and select its resistance and power parameters according to the specific requirements of the circuit. It is necessary to ensure that it can be blown quickly when it is overloaded, and that it can work stably for a long time under normal conditions. Excessive resistance or excessive power may affect its function.
This paper mainly studies shunt resistance, its main purpose is to measure current. However, the term shunt has a broader meaning in electronics than this.
When the current of the fusible resistor exceeds the rated value, it opens like a fuse. The component is generally nickel-chromium with a melting point of about 1400°C.
Load banks are an important asset in any industry, as they ensure the operation of equipment in the event of a power outage.
A shunt is an electrical device that generates a low resistance path for current. This allows the current to flow to another point in the circuit. A shunt may also be called an ammeter shunt or a current shunt resistor.
