Designed with ports for Deutsch connectors, Murrelektronik's (Suwanee, GA) new xtreme DB distribution block provides up to three times the current-carrying capacity compared to blocks of similar size, along with design efficiencies that will help to transform the way control systems are developed by heavy-duty vehicle builders. xtreme DB blocks with Deutsch connectors have eight I/O ports, 16 configurable outputs and can do the work of multiple ordinary blocks using standard M12 connectors. According to Murrelektronik, the xtreme DB is specifically designed to meet the power-distribution needs of heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers who build agricultural machines, railway and construction equipment, trucks for fire and rescue, road and utility maintenance, garbage collection and other mission-specific vehicles.
