Homework Help: Does Aryton shunt=multirange ammeter?

  1. Aug 6, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Aryton shunt=multirange ammeter?

    2. Relevant equations

    How to do this question?
    Design an Aryton shunt to provide an ammeter with a current range of 0-1mA,10mA,50mA and 100mA. A D'Arsoval movement with an internal resistance of 100ohm and full scale current of 50x10-6A is used.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Welcome to the PF. I did a google search on Aryton shunt, and the 3rd hit on the hit list looks to be a useful tutorial for you.

    Give that a read, and start working through the numbers for your problem. If you still have a specific question, post the details and the question here as a follow-up.
