Need Specs or Data Sheet for Old L&N 4333 Shunt
« on: 11-19-2008 -- 23:12:55 »
You know what I love about my job?  I really love working with high accuracy standards.  I started my new position in Texas a little over a month ago, and am in process of pulling together the somewhat idle standards lab.  I have an assortment of Fluke 742A's, Tinsley 5685A's (very nice), some Guildline 9330 series, a Thomas 1 Ohm, an SR104 10KOhm, and others.

I have a couple of Leeds & Northrup 4333 0.001 Ohm, 30 Amp Shunt resistors.  There is some cal history on them, so I have some ideas.  A couple of the certs state a +/-0.005% tolerance; all the rest just state the measurement uncertainty (one was really nice - - +/-0.58 ppm).

Anyway....  does anyone have a datasheet on the L&N 4333, or something documented as to its various specs?  I'll be working on accreditation scope in coming months, and would love to be able to include them.

Actual value with stated uncert. will be fine. Label the shunt with the actual value.

Wow... What kind of bridge do you have to maintain all those resistors?

I've got an old Guildline 9975 that I am also trying to resurrect.  I got operators instructions faxed to me from the OEM a couple of years ago, and we just found some GIDEP stuff.

 I worked at Leeds and Northrup from 1969-1994. I have a Catalog that shows the 4333 shunt if you are still interested.

Actually I do still need the specs.  I am getting ready to get more involved again in the 9975 project.  Thanks for the reply.

I'm another L & N'er (79 - 94) and probably have the spec sheet around - somewhere.
