NEW PRODUCT – Power Distribution Bus – 7 x 6mm diameter solid brass

Window-116

NEW PRODUCT – Power Distribution Bus – 7 x 6mm diameter solid brass. Imagine terminal blocks that are cut out of one solid piece of brass, designed to distribute power. Well, that’s what we have here! These machined bus bars are for when you want to distribute power through a project, we think they are ideal for robots and LED pixel grids where you have tons of current and a lot of loose wiring to control

Window-1-61

Each bus has 7 holes bored out of a chunk of brass. There are screws that can cinch down any number of wires. Since its meant for power distribution, the wires should be 20 AWG or larger (thinner wires will slip out). You can use any larger wire, the holes are 6mm diameter! We don’t have exact specifications for current carrying ability but we imagine they are good for 10A as its just a chunk of metal

A nice touch on these is the plastic covering which provides a little isolation from the outside world, and mounting flanges…
