A shunt is a device that functions to divert or obstruct the path of an electric current or electrical charge. These flexible bars can be made from copper without additional compression connections, they could also be made by extrusion of copper-clad steel, stainless steel clad copper, or copper-clad aluminum, but preferably aluminum or copper. Copper conductors have a history of being reliable and long-lasting in the cable industry. They are able to withstand pressures in non-shielded environments, as well as external forces. The MIG welding process provides a sturdy, long-lasting bond that ensures copper connectors are built to last.
- The MIG welding shunt has many advantages: superior welding performance, cost-effectiveness, and functionality. This style of the shunt can often be supplied faster than a fusion connection, and it’s preferred for heavy-duty applications.
- MIG welded shunts feature maximum welding performance and cost-effectiveness. In most cases, the welded shunt has a shorter lead time compared to a fused connection and is ideal for rated applications.
- MIG welded shunt are cost-effective, have low handling costs, require less maintenance, have better transfer properties, longer life, and high reliability.
