Marathon Special Products Introduces Bulk Fastening Power Block

This product was developed in response to a demand for power blocks with more amps, volts and wiring combinations.

BOWLING GREEN, OHIO – Marathon Special Products (MSP), an industry leader in electrical/electronic components, has released a unique addition to their line of power terminal blocks. This new Bulk Fastening Power Block (BFPB) differs from traditional power blocks by providing a series of fasteners to terminate numerous combinations of listed crimp lugs or flexible busbar to distribute power.


This product was developed in response to a demand for power blocks with more amps, volts and wiring combinations. In addition, the BFPB provides the ability to reliably terminate large, flexible-stranded wire and distribute power with flexible busbar. "The BFPB is a catch-all to satisfy the demands that traditional bare-wire power block offerings cannot accommodate" stated Joe Brown, Product Specialist at Marathon Special Products.

The product features a current carrying capacity up to 1605 amps, a voltage rating up to 1000V AC/DC, high Short Circuit Current Ratings (SCCR) and meets the requirements for use in feeder circuits. The SCCR includes the industry's first 35K approvals with no over-current protection requirement and 100K SCCR with specified over-current protection. UL1059 typically allows only a 10K rating (as default) without over-current protection.

The BFPB Series can be used for variety of applications including junction boxes and inverter panels, as well as industrial control panels for large motor, HVAC, pumping and mining applications. To protect the BFPB's unique features of strength, reliability, modularity and wire versatility with agency recognition (UL), MSP has a pending patent on this product.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
