Burndy’s Versipole blocks no chip off the old ones
By Renée Francoeur
August 24, 2015 – The Versipole configurable series power distribution blocks are not a “chip off the old block”, says Burndy. These are typically used in electrical panels and wire ways for splicing cables and distributing power from primary runs to secondary/branch circuits.
These blocks are listed to Standard UL1953. Each configuration is also now available in an “Open” style and “Finger-Safe” style. Finger-Safe styles include a plastic top cover and plastic end plates that meet requirements of IEC 60527 with an IP-20 rating.
Although offered in standard 1-, 2-, or 3-pole configurations to support a variety of common run and tap combinations, the configurable series can also be designed to accommodate a number of made-to-order combinations, Burndy noted. Adders are available to expand the number of poles of an existing configuration. Optional translucent polycarbonate hinged covers for use with the “Open” style are available separately as well.
