DIN Rail control panel users, let's see em!
 
I'm planning on rewiring my control panel and I'm hoping to clean it up a bit, so I'm interested in seeing any pictures of your control panels that use DIN Rails.

Anyone?

Post #503 -The tapped holes are for two more contactors. Of course it isn't wired up yet, but that is simply because I am wrapping up painting on the control box first.

I have a din rail running through the middle of my panel, with non din rail items on the sides of it.

Thanks for starting this thread! I've been curious about a couple of different items regarding these DIN rail mounted components.

The terminal blocks. How do those work when ganged together? Can they be used to distribute power? Or don't they work that way? I'm looking at power distribution blocks and those are kind of pricey. If these terminal blocks can be used to distribute power in my control panel then I'd rather go with that.

Two thumbs up on this thread. Since I am going to be building soon enough I have been looking for inspiration and ideas to "borrow" for my panel. I am pretty sure I want actual temp and target temp stacked one on top of the other. Then a pilot lite if that circuit is active and a burner on lite. I would like to include a timer that goes both ways and can signal when it is time to do something different like move wort, or initiate sparging or drain of Vorlauf. Lots of different possibilities just dont need it too complex and definately not usefull if it is too primitive, Keep the pics coming please. Thanks!!!!

Here's the start of mine. Still have to add the ground bus.

Terminal strips, ssrs, fuses, & breakers are the only things on DIN rail and the rest is screwed to the backboard.
