Thanks for the link.

I've been caught up in work, but am looking forward to moving my sourcing to predominantly DIN mount components.

I am sourcing my panel and have going that Tier1automation has great prices and free shipping. I am putting together an order from them right now. It's tough to beat 6 bucks for a 2m din rail shipped.

Out of curiosity, what other types of components could go on a DIN rail (besides breakers)?

The great thing about DIN rails, is pretty much anything(within reasonable size) can be mounted using these clips. I have everything except my heat sinks mounted and it is easy to manage!

@Spartan1979: Almost everything you'd want to install on a back plane: circuit breakers, SSR's, Contactors, Terminal Blocks, Fuse Holders/Blocks, etc.

@psbuckland: Thanks! Love that link, definitely seals the decision in favour of DIN rails in my mind.

SSRs, Relays, contactors, power supplies, terminal blocks, etc. Pretty much any electronic component that you would want to mount in a panel. I plan on using the rail as the ground in my upcoming build. That way I can put tap a ground wherever I need one as the DIN rail and cabinet are the ground.

Are you planning on using a ground terminal block for this? If not, it might be a good idea to ensure a proper ground connection.

Yes. I am going to order the yellow/green dedicated grounding blocks that clamp to the din rail. I plan on connecting the ground to the din rail via the din mounting bolt.
