|Rails & Brackets|
DIN-rails provide easy installation and removal of terminal blocks and other devices. These DIN rails meet international standards and are supplied in slotted zinc-dichromated steel, in 1 meter (39 inch) lengths, 35mm or 15mm widths and 7.5mm or 15mm heights.
The DN-EB15 end brackets mount on 15mm DIN rail, and DN-EB35 end brackets are designed to mount on 35mm DIN rail. End brackets are used to prevent components from sliding along the DIN rail.
- The DN-EB15xx series is designed to mount on 15mm DIN rail
- The DN-EB35xx series is designed to mount on 35mm DIN rail
Certain end covers can be used with multiple terminal block parts to cover and insulate the open side, or to put more space between adjacent terminal blocks.
End covers are required to provide electrical insulation for the exposed metal components of the last terminal block in an assembly. Interlocking pins secure the polyamide end cover to the electrical terminal block while allowing easy insertion and removal. When the size of terminal blocks change in an assembly, an end cover is also required to insulate the open side of the terminal block.
Certain VDE regulations require the use of terminal block covers. The transparent polycarbonate terminal block covers are printed with a warning arrow and the international danger symbol, allowing the marking tag area and any jumpers to remain visible after installation.
Separators are used to electrically or visually separate groups of terminal blocks, or to electrically insulate adjacent internal jumpers. Terminal block separators project beyond the terminal block on all sides. Spacers for plug-in terminal blocks are also available.
Jumpers are used to electrically interconnect two or more consecutive terminal blocks, without reducing the wiring capacity of the terminal blocks. Terminal block jumpers are available in two, three, four and longer pole configurations, and are supplied with screws and washers.
Jumpers are made of electrolytic copper with a corrosion-resistant nickel plating. When installed, the jumpers are recessed in the terminal block molding to reduce the risk of accidental shock.
Test plugs are used for hands-free electrical circuit troubleshooting and testing. The terminal block test plugs are inserted into the tapped hole of the terminal block current bar. These plug-in style test devices cannot be used when terminal block jumpers or jumper bars are installed. Plug diameter is 2.8mm and test plugs are available in red or black
