DIN Rail Components
DIN rail components are specially designed to snap in directly to a rail that is attached to an enclosure backplate. Stoppers are used on either end of components to hold them in place.
Functionality and quality is the same as standard bolt mounted parts. Advantages usually include smaller part size and quicker installation for an experienced user (those new to electrical work may find DIN rail initially confusing). Cost to implement can be higher as specialized tools are sometimes required.
Since DIN rail components do not accept spade or ring type terminals, wire ferrules must be first be attached to stranded wires using a wire ferrule crimper. We do not recommend attaching stranded wires directly to DIN rail components as they may become loose over time.
