    I have a few analog 3 Amp Ammeters I would like to use however I can't find a shunt that is 3 amps.

    What are my options?


    Thanks.

    You don't look for a 3 amp shunt, per se..
    What is your meter, moving coil or moving iron?
    What is the FSD current?

    Why did you think you need a shunt?
    If a meter is shown with a dedicated current capability, then a shunt is already in place or provided within the kit.
    Are you intending to run more than 3 amps through the meter?

    No more then the recommended rating. I did not realize you did not need an external shunt.

    Thanks.

    because it is already rated at 3A, it will have an internal shunt
