Weidmuller WPD – New Color Offering


March 16, 2021

In expanding their commitment to providing standard duty connections, Weidmuller was recently proud to announce the addition of a new color-coded Power Distribution Block series to their already impressive selection of IP 20 feed-through terminals. These DIN rail/direct mountable blocks are intended for distributing main power sources for low voltage (600V AC/DC, 30-310A) applications, utilizing large wire sizes, and of course, maintaining finger-safe connections. Further, these distribution blocks allow for multi-pole assembly with built-in joiners to gang blocks together to generate two and three-phase groupings.

Weidmuller W-Series Power Distribution (WPD’s) blocks are not your typical distribution blocks: they are clearly designed with the future in mind. They minimize installation costs by unifying power connections in the control cabinet to a single bus module instead of the always bulky and sometimes non-finger safe traditional barrier style blocks. Manage multiple load connections from one to nine poles with a single WPD. Line and Load connections are designed to grip a wide range of wire sizes (AWG 14 – 3/0) making inventory selection for numerous requirements a snap. With application flexibility, reduced installed cost, and safety included, the Weidmuller Power Distribution Blocks deliver power and performance.
