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.

Reason: Grammar

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.
