The accuracy of direct-current milliammeters in which the entire current to be measured flows through the moving coil is almost independent of changes of the instrument temperature, because (1) no change in the distribution of the measured current between the moving coil end a shunt circuit around it can occur as a result of change of temperature; (2) the small temperature coefficient of magnetic flux density in the air gap (about 0.
