1. A sensing arrangement structured to sense current or voltage of at least one conductor, the sensing arrangement comprising:
a plurality of wire wound resistors electrically connected in a series connection;
a first terminal disposed at a first end of the series connection of wire wound resistors; and
a second terminal disposed at a second end of the series connection of wire wound resistors, wherein the wire wound resistors are arranged in a polygonal shape having at least three vertices, and wherein the first terminal and the second terminal are disposed at one of the vertices,
wherein each of the wire wound resistors has a resistance of at least 7 kΩ.
