Dual level terminal block
Weidmuller WDK10 terminal block is designed to save space by 50% and can integrate two circuits within one terminal.
Weidmuller introduces a new terminal block to the WDK Terminal Series for machinery, process and power generation industries. The WDK 10 dual-level terminal is designed to reduce cabinet space by 50% and is ideally suited for applications where there is limited panel space for power distribution terminal installations. With a 10 mm width, the WDK 10 offers one of the highest wiring densities among screw terminals for power distribution applications requiring 6AWG conductors.
Weidmuller’s WDK 10 integrates two independent circuits within one terminal. This new design includes corresponding jumpering channels that accommodate the connection of screw-down jumpers to adjacent terminals. Depending on power distribution requirements, an upper- and lower-bussed terminal is available (WDK 10V) to common 4-wires to one terminal. The new WDK 10 features Weidmuller’s vibration-proof and maintenance-free “self-locking” screw clamp termination technology and is electrically rated for 600 V/64 A/18-6 AWG to UL and CSA standards.

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
