This is where ammeters using precision shunt resistors come into play, even if they require a separate means of isolation.
Quantitatively, the error caused by the shunt ammeter is stated as the ammeter's voltage burden divided by [R.sub.s], the output resistance of the DUT.
Again, all of these effects can be evaluated, quantified, and reduced by using the sensitive ammeter as a troubleshooting tool.
