    It's a poor translation. The device is a shunt that allows a distant meter to measure current flow without having full thickness wires to & from the meter.

    I agree with Tony. It is an ammeter sensor (an ammeter measures current in amps, a voltmeter measures volts. To me, it doesn't look like a simple shunt, which has two high-current terminals and two thin sensor wires. I suspect this one has an additional small circuit board inside, to translate the current measurement into digital form and send it back to the control panel. It's more accurate than a simple shunt.

    Agreed. Probably Hall-effect - volt-drop sensing is sooo yesterdays tech :LOL:.
