[volt-nuts] Load Testing a PSU

Hello The Net:

Every test bench needs an assortment of current shunts.
Some of mine are: 100 Amps will give a 50 millivolt drop across it at 
100A load..
     Another is a 50 Amp shunt that gives 50 millivolts across it when 
loaded to 50A.

Then use a DVM to measure the voltage drop.

Also have a FLUKE current probe "clamp on" using a Hall effect 
technique, to measure AC and DC current.

A Ebay search should give some cost effective results for a current 
shunt, just for an idea.
