Fused Terminal Block similar to Blue Sea Systems ST Blade Fuse Block

Hi Folks,

I am looking for a fused terminal block similar to the Blue Sea Systems ST Blade Fuse Block. This will be placed between the wires coming from the mast and the wires going to my panel. This is located in my head. Each wire is switched independently... you know.... running lights, masthead light, etc... so I cannot use a common bus like the ST Blade.

However, I like the ST Blade design... nice layout for the fuses, ATC fuse support, nice cover, etc.

I can't find a terminal block that has the same attributes but individually fused circuits. I did find some on mcmaster carr but they used brass terminals and was not marine quality.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

- z

You can try delcity.net. they have several options with covers. Not sure who makes them thou or the quality.

I believe Blue Sea has a glass fuse version without a common feed as well.

Pretty sure this is what you're looking for. Looks like 6 independent fuse circuits. No high side or low side bus.

why would you fuse individual circuits at the mast bottom halfway down the circuit? they should be fused up at the switches or panel. unless you are running one power wire to the mast and switching through relays below the mast for some reason.
