When it comes to wiring an electrical connection, the easier you can make the job for yourself, the better. Terminal blocks help to simplify a electrical connection.
Why use terminal blocks? Flat mount terminal blocks are used extensively through out the marine industry. Boat builders use them to simplify wiring work and eliminate splicing. Another reason for their popularity is that they stop short circuits.
Pacer Group carries terminal blocks to two styles, flat mount and European. What makes the European blocks different? European terminal blocks don't require the wires to be terminated. With flat mount blocks, it is common to use ring or fork terminals. It is important to note that rings and forks are more vibration resistant than bare wire.
