What type of busbar terminal block am I looking at here?

Lagoon 420. The negatives are completely full - the blue terminal blocks - but there is space to add a couple of additional blocks on the busbar.

It's Lagoon, so Wago? And what SKU/part number am I looking at here ?

Blue Sea does Din Rail terminal blocks?

Of course I can rip out what's there and start again. But that's not really what I asked here, is it?

I would rip that junk out. those terminals are not full. they are 10x over filled.

each of those wires should have it's own connector.

If you’re just adding more circuits why not get a better, proper bus, fused or unfused. Not saying you have to rip out what’s there, just add another terminal block or bus. If you really want want dr terminals you can find them online or electronics stores like radio shack.

Those look like Moeller Din mounted connector blocks. Electrical suppliers will have them however they have made a poor bus bar out of these blocks. I have seen this done in an industrial setting but not in a marine environment. A solid busbar with multiple connectors would be better.

Re: What type of busbar terminal block am I looking at here?

That is a nice clean installation. The single point return/ground is the way to go. Really curios about attaching all the small return wires to a single point but I am sure they have it covered.
DIN is the standard for most modern electronics and probably recently design vessels. Check TE Connectivity World wide. In the US, Mouser or Arrow Electronics will be distributors.

Why not ask Lagoon?

As already said there are several manufacturers of similar products. I chose Amp made terminals a long time ago when I rewired.

Their ground bus is a poor set up. Rather than jumper wires there are bridging clips made to do that job.

Better yet, make your own custom busbar. I bought a foot of 1/4 by 1 inch copper and drilled & tapped it to my needs. It runs parallel to the positive terminals and there is one screw for each positive connection and one for the wire running to the battery negative.

It looks like the same system used by Beneteau Wego or Wago. Beneteau USA uses this product. Be sure to tighten the negative blocks from time to time.

Re: What type of busbar terminal block am I looking at here?

Sorry, don’t recognize that particular block.
An option might be to replace those blue DIN blocks with one designed for neutral distribution. They have a bus bar through the middle. You can get pre-joined blocks of 10 DIN rail connectors. When using the joiner it leaves the connections on the top available, doubling the density for the same space on the DIN rail.

Re: What type of busbar terminal block am I looking at here?

Looking at the photo more closely (with glasses on) it looks like those blocks have the provision for the joiner. The threaded hole in the middle of each connector block is for the joiner plate to screw in. At work here they have different length joiners (2,3,5).
