Cumming, GA — AutomationDirect Edison power distribution blocks and terminal blocks . The distinctly different styles of short-circuit current rated (SCCR) power distribution blocks and terminal blocks are designed to support different application needs.

Edison’s finger-safe power distribution blocks from AutomationDirect feature a modular design allowing users to select and configure the number of poles required by each application.

Edison’s finger-safe power distribution blocks feature a modular design allowing users to select and configure the number of poles required by each application. Ideal for today’s power circuit requirements, these blocks are engineered to accept copper conductors and maintain an SCCR rating of 200 kA, with proper fusing. The finger-safe blocks are suitable for both factory and field wiring and are rated from 175 A to 760 A. Most finger-safe blocks are DIN-rail mountable and prices start at $8.25.
Edison open-style terminal blocks are also offered as a convenient way to manage power distribution needs in factory and field settings. Surface-mountable, they are engineered to maintain an SCCR rating of 200 kA with copper conductors and 10 kA for aluminum conductors.at $1.50.
