Marathon Special Products (MSP), a provider of electrical and electronic components, has released the new Bulk Fastening Power Block (BFPB). According to the company, the BFPB differs from traditional power blocks by providing a series of fasteners to terminate numerous combinations of listed crimp lugs or flexible busbars to distribute power.
This product was developed in response to a demand for power blocks with more amps, volts and wiring combinations. In addition, the BFPB provides the ability to reliably terminate large, flexible-stranded wire and distribute power with flexible busbar, MSP says.
The product features a current-carrying capacity of up to 1,605 A, a voltage rating of up to 1,000 V AC/DC and high short-circuit current ratings (SCCR). The SCCRs include the industry's first 35K approvals with no over-current protection requirement and 100K SCCR with specified over-current protection, the company adds.
Applications include solar junction boxes and inverter panels, as well as industrial control panels.
