MPDB Series - Power Distribution Blocks


The Next Generation Open-Style Power Distribution Blocks (PDBs) are Coming

This month Mersen will launch its next generation open-style power distribution blocks (MPDB series).
The MPDB series will be an upgrade to the existing series by:

1. The new MPDB series will be UL Listed (as opposed to UL Recognized)

UL Listing means the product is suitable for all applications without question (there are no conditions of acceptability). Many other products on the market are UL Recognized. UL Recognized components must be evaluated and approved by UL authority in the end use application. The MPDB UL Listing approval saves you and your customers time and money ehn selecting and installing PDB's. It's just plain easier.

2. The new MPDB series will showcase a new optional hinged safety cover

Safety covers are becoming more popular as the trend for increased electrical safety and reduction of shock hazards becomes more and more common. The optional MPDB safety cover easily snaps right into the PDB. There are no tools required making this a huge advantage over other products that require screws to mount covers.

Product Transition from Old to New
With the introduction of the next-generation MPDB series, the existing series of products (62,63,66,67,68 and 69 series terminal blocks) will be discontinued. The transition will occur over a period of several months, starting in May 2013. Act now, upgrade to the new MPDB series power distribution blocks.

Literature and tools are available on the Mersen website:

Tools include Data Sheets, Outline Drawings, 3D models, Cross Reference Information, Dimensional Comparisons, Torque and Spec Information, UL Reference Information, SCCR Tables, etc...
