Riedon Launches Shunts.com: the Industry’s First E-Commerce Site Dedicated to Current Sense Shunts and Fuse Blocks

Alhambra, California, USA, 5 September 2018Riedon, a specialist manufacturer of cutting-edge power and precision resistors, has announced the industry’s first e-commerce site dedicated to the rapid sourcing of current sense shunt and fuse block product lines.

Shunts.com will significantly simplify the identification and purchase of shunts and fuse blocks for use in a wide variety of commercial, industrial, aerospace, transportation, instrumentation, renewable energy and medical applications. Orders placed on the site will typically be dispatched within 24 hours.

Rideon Deltec ammeter shunts deliver a rugged and accurate means of measuring a broad range of currents, while the company’s fuse blocks provide a durable and safe method for protecting high-current DC systems. These shunt resistors and fuse blocks are essential for current sensing and protection in the battery monitoring and off-grid backup solutions deployed in recreational, emergency, and industrial vehicles and marine systems. They also play a critical role in power conversion, PV inverters, DC motor drives, traction, welding, mining and electroplating equipment.

Visitors to shunts.com can select shunts with ratings ranging from 10A to 6000A and fuse blocks that are rated from 110A to 400A. Both technologies are available in a variety of configurations and mounting options to accommodate the broadest possible range of installation requirements. In addition, visitors to the site can request further information or submit requests for custom configurations.

As well as the ability to purchase the latest technologies for rapid delivery, Riedon’s e-commerce site also offers comprehensive tutorials on current sense shunts and fuse blocks. The ‘Shunts 101’ tutorial covers shunt operation and installation, typical use cases, how to choose the correct shunt resistor for a given application and standard and custom shunt options. In the fuse blocks tutorial, visitors can find out more about how to specify fuse blocks alongside product and application examples.

Discussing the launch of shunts.com, Frieda Hovsepian, Riedon’s VP Sales & Marketing, commented: “Following last year’s acquisition of Deltec, Rideon has become the world’s leading manufacturer of current sense shunt resistors. By launching our new e-commerce site, we are giving designers, engineers and integrators the only online platform dedicated to the quick and easy delivery of these increasingly important products.”
