Caption: Ammeter and shunt. Historical illustration of an ammeter (top) and shunt (bottom) from the Chauvin and Arnoux company, founded in Paris, France in 1893. An ammeter is used to measure electrical current, which is measured in amperes (amps). An ammeter shunt is used to help measure currents too large to be measured by the available ammeter. A voltmeter connected across the shunt can be calibrated to give the current reading. Artwork from 'Electricite' (1911) by Max de Nansouty, part of the 'Les merveilles de la science' series of 1867-1891 by Louis Figuier.
