Default DIN Mount 3 level terminals

I'm just starting to plan out my automated system, and I'd like to move to din mount terminals and breakers. Can anyone recommend a retailer for these supplies. Specifically the 3 level terminals as I will require one for each valve.

I got my single levels at mouser.com

I don't know that they're the cheapest, but they have a ton of stuff and are fast. The only thing is that if you don't know exactly what you're looking for it takes a while to find stuff.

I found these, but I'm new to DIN mount things and want to ensure its 3 screw terminals on each side.

Mouser.com is where I got my Altech DIN terminal blocks. Download the Altech PDF and review it for the parts you want. Mouser prefixes the Altech part numbers with "845-" so it makes it easy to search the site for just what you want. The only thing is the DIN rail from Mouser is about 6 ft in length. Makes for difficult shipping, but it's only $9.

Automationdirect.com is good and Factorymation.com is not bad.

Does it seem right that I'm getting about $5 a piece on 3-level terminal blocks. I will need one for each valve in my automated setup. That is a decent expensive on just terminals, but they do make the wiring much easier.

With a relay board they are kinda a must.

I see them at Mouser for $3.96. Might save you enough to pay for shipping depending on the multiplier.
