DBL Power Distribution Blocks

DBL Power Distribution Blocks – compact space-saving versatility from Entrelec

Entrelec DBL Power Distribution Blocks offer a compact space saving and modular design with 3 configuration options. The clever design is easy to install via either DIN rail or panel mounting and provides greater flexibility in the field with 3 configurations in 1 product, a single pole splitter, a multi-pole splitter and finally, a grouping option. This concept reduces assembly time by up to 80% when compared to traditional systems, and to simplify panel mounting, installation information is engraved on the foot of each distribution block.

Combined Distribution

When used as a single-pole splitter, this facility simply splits the mains power input into several individual outputs. The multi-pole splitter is facilitated by an interlocking function making it easy to combine the distribution blocks, and the grouping configuration allows the grouping of several inputs into 1 output. Flexible in use, these power distribution blocks include a two-direction opening – reversible cover that helps facilitate easy identification and wiring, with all the technical data and specifications easily visible on its surface.

DBL boxes are ideal for distributing power in numerous industrial and commercial applications, with certain models (DBL250-F and DBL500-F) having the facility to be used with flat conductor systems. The modular, touch proof and rugged design, with an IP20 rating, eliminates the need for bus bars, isolators, fasteners and protection screens.

Wide Range of Applications

Typical applications include – distributing power in industrial and commercial electrical panels, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), power distribution units, combining photovoltaic (PV) strings in one output, PV combiner boxes and central inverters in solar power plants and more.

PRC Series Circular Connectors – A New Angle on Connectivity

When it comes to industrial connectors, the PRC Series of circular connectors from Phoenix Contact has been designed to enable robust, reliable and stable cable-to-cable connections that demand precision real estate management in a multitude of installations from industrial and outdoor to commercial buildings. Incorporating weatherproof materials in their construction and with an impressive IP69K rating, the PRC series of connectors are capable of high current transmission even in the most demanding environmental conditions.

PRC series circular connectors

The PRC series has grown recently, expanding the possibilities of this series of robust Phoenix Contact inverted circular connectors even further. These additional connector models come in a selectable angled format – the field connectors can be set at 45 & 90 degrees and device connectors set at 0, 45, and 90 degrees. Thanks to their clever modular design they can be installed with various contact inserts for 5 and 3-way socket or pin contacts depending on the desired application. The PRC series circular connectors can also be colour coded, which can help speed up the accuracy and speed of connections in the field.

These inverted circular connectors with contact inserts, available in 3 or 5 contact versions, have been designed for currents up to 35 A and voltages up to 690 V AC. Hard-wearing and versatile, these circular connectors are up to 75% more compact than rival industrial connectors that are in the marketplace. Their smaller dimension adds yet another string to the bow of the diligent engineer who is looking for a compact and robust circular connector solution for their next installation or retrofitting project.

PRC Connector Advantages

  • 75% smaller in size than industrial connectors with the same rating
  • Locking mechanism can be unlocked manually or using a tool
  • Suitable for applications in atmospheres containing salt with excellent UV resistance
  • Ideal for indoor and outdoor use – waterproof materials
