How to install terminal blocks?

  • Installing the terminal blocks depends on the type of terminal blocks you have. Some terminal blocks are din rail mounted, which means they are slotted on the back to clip onto the din rails typically used for electrical panels.

    DIN rail mounted terminal blocks can also sometimes clip into each other, which is useful in applications that require a lot of terminal blocks, as they can make the panel look uncluttered. DIN rail mounted terminals can also be fitted with jumper connectors, which allow a set of terminals to be connected to each other.

    This is useful in applications that need to share power for multiple components in a circuit or system. This is often found when controlling voltages requiring powering many components in the circuit.

    Other types of terminal blocks sometimes have a screw hole in the middle, which means you can use screws or bolts to mount the terminal block wherever you want.
