Shunt cover

Hello, is there a cover available for the shunt so as to avoid any accidental short with the large exposed bolts of the shunt? Mine is mounted near 12v batteries as well as a positive bus terminal.

Thanks

Not as far as I know, there isn't one listed on the victron energy web site that I can find.

The shunt should be earthed/grounded on the load side, so the risk is form positive terminals, these should always be covered orinsulated and power off when any work is carried put. If you do cover with a diy solution, allow plenty of ventilation.

Some have used a Blue Sea 2719 MaxiBus cover as an enclosure for Victron shunts https://www.bluesea.com/products/2719/MaxiBus_Insulating_Cover_for_PN_2127_and_2128

Also, the Victron high voltage shunts (BMV-700H & BMV-710H Smart) come in a sealed enclosure with cable glands https://www.victronenergy.com/battery-monitors/bmv-700h

Thanks for the replies and suggestions. Looks like the Blue Sea box will work well, I may give that a try, but its currently out of stock at my local marine store.
