Our quality – tinned, marine grade terminal blocks are of huge benefit on most re-wire jobs. A terminal block – sometimes called junction block – is a convenient connection point for two wires.
It acts like a bunch of splices, but in an organized way. Each ‘circuit’ has two adjacent screw terminals connected by metal plates. This is distinctly different than a ‘bus bar’ where all the conductors attached to it are “bussed” together.
Extremely common on boats, especially where the switch panel connects to the boat’s wiring infrastructure. These marine grade terminal blocks are what our switch panels are designed to attach to.
We carry them in 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 20 circuits. They screw under the dash with a few wood screws, or can be epoxied in. Sized for #8 ring terminals.
