Shunt Assembly for Energy Meters

SHUNT is precision element for the energy meter which works in all kinds of electrical meter as power measure.

  • The Manganin Shunt resistor is used as a key part of the measuring device inside the electronic ammeter
  • The EBW type shunt gives precise measurement. It also helps to save cost of the production process and material

Prototype Sample Making

We are customer base of all global electricity meter manufacturer. PML expertise in prototype development with temporary or wire cut method. With fast and low cost prototype development concept proving can be done with accurate handmade samples. This gives a kick start for the project making PML as preferred supplier in quality and delivery. During proto development with the customer R&D it gives PML a chance to improvise the design for better reliability and manufacturability for mass production with better results.
