Press release date: January 1, 2013

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.

Marathon Special Products will be showcasing the Bulk Fastening Power Block at the International Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Expo (AHR) January 28–30, 2013 at the Dallas Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. MSP will be located in Booth #2301 with its parent company Regal.
