Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, today announced it has stock for Weidmuller's new line of AC DIN rail receptacles.

The following DRAC line products are now available for purchase on Digi-Key's global websites and will be featured in future print and online catalogs:

  • 6720005420 (Digi-Key # 281-2579-ND) Module Outlet AC Dual 20A 120VAC

Compact at only 2.9-inches wide and 4.6-inches wide, these new receptacles are fully enclosed and touch safe. They include 15A or 20A power outlets, which provide a simple and convenient power source inside a panel or closure for such applications as laptops, test equipment, lighting, and solder irons.

The DRAC line offers design flexibility and savings on setup time. Ready to be put into place right out of the box, these receptacles can be installed onto 35mm DIN rail or, for added convenience, directly panel mounted. They accept solid or stranded wiring from 20AWG to 10AWG. Additionally, the DRAC line is UL approved for use in any UL panel or control system. THE UL508A and cULus approvals coupled with NEMA ratings make it effortless to add to a control cabinet or system.
