Mersen MPDB Series: Now Rated for Fine-Strand Wire

Mersen power distribution blocks provide a safe and easy method of splicing cables, splitting primary power into secondary circuits and fulfilling requirements for fixed junction tap-off points. Many MPDB part numbers are now rated to accept DLO-type fine-strand wire, allowing users to install flexible conductors. UL and CSA approved.

Features:

  • Adder Poles: All sizes have optional adder poles for increased flexibility and ease-of-use. Adder poles can be stacked to form multi-pole units in the field without the use of tools. Adder poles allow for customization of primary and secondary wire combinations. End barriers are also available for sale, catalog numbers can be found in the catalog number selection tables for each size block.
  • Wire Connectors: Standard aluminum and copper wire connectors are available. Aluminum connectors accept both AL or CU wire while copper connectors accept CU wire only. Connectors are all 1-piece tin-plated. Many part numbers are rated to accept DLO-type fine-strand wire, allowing users to connect flexible conductors.
  • Insulators: Insulators are virtually unbreakable, made of glass-filled polycarbonate. “See-through,” hinged safety covers are optional and provide a greater degree of safety and shock resistance where required. Hinged covers can be installed without tools.
  • Spacings: 1 inch through air and 2 inches over surface between uninsulated live parts of opposite polarity meets requirements for feeder and branch circuit applications of UL508A.
  • Safety Covers: Polycarbonate safety covers provide dead-front protection. One cover is needed for each pole. Each cover has a test probe hole in the center for circuit checking. Covers are optional accessories and catalog numbers can be found in the catalog selection tables for each size block.
