Do you have pics?

On my panel I just went for it. I'm a complete rookie at this type of wiring. I have an Auber panel, and its pretty compact. I also added a 3rd pump because I'm lazy, so theres a little more junk in there. Sorry the pics are sideways.

DIN stands for Deutsches Institut für Normung or in English German Institute for Standardization.
Every time a hombrewer talks about DIN mounted components they talk about electrical parts which fit on a standard 35 mm DIN-rail.
It doesn't matter from what supplier you purchase the components they all fit on the standard rail without any screws. All the components snap on the rail and can be replaced in no time.

Below you can see some of the DIN-rail mountable parts I use in my brewing projects.
Look closely and you can see the metal rail with all different parts on the rail, terminal blocks, relays, circuit breakers,PLCs, etc.

Cheers,
ClaudiusB

Like I said, it was tight. My wiring wasn't pretty, but you can see the "feet" that I used to attach the contactors. They are the grey things in between each one.

OK, it's the brackets the parts are mounted on. This seems like a expensive way to go. You have to buy the brackets then you can only mount what fits on the brackets.

FYI the DIN standards also apply to standardized opening sizes in panels for PIDs and other devices.

You will see references to 1/2 DIN 1/16 DIN, etc for panel opening on various components.
