Ferraz Shawmut (Mersen) Miniature series power distribution block hinged safety cover with snap-on mount features optional adder poles for increased flexibility and is ease to use. It has adder poles that can be stacked to form multi-pole units in the field without the use of tools and for customization of primary or secondary wire combinations.
Cover comes with standard aluminum/copper wire connectors, unbreakable insulators, optical see-through hinged safety covers to provide a greater degree of safety or shock resistance and polycarbonate safety covers to provide dead-front protection. It is used in Mpdb62, Mpdb63 series, cable splicing, splitting primary power into secondary circuits and fixed junction tap-off points. Cover is UL listed, CSA certified and is RoHS compliant.
|Application||Splicing cables Splitting primary power into secondary circuits Fixed junction tap-off points.|
|Catalog Description||The Next Generation Power Distribution Block (PDB). 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. All blocks are UL and CSA approved while meeting spacing requirements for feeder and branch circuits in conjunction with UL508A and the National Electrical Code«. PDB options include single or dual conductor primary inputs and up to 30 secondary outputs. Specialty blocks are available allowing for up to 7 primary inputs. The MPDB series is offered in three size categories: miniature (MPDB62 and MPDB63 series), intermediate (MPDB66 and MPDB67 series), and large (MPDB68 and MPDB69 series), in both aluminum and copper.

|Special 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.|
