DIN Rails

DIN Rail is a metal strip rail commonly used for mounting industrial control equipment inside equipment PCL racks and enclosures. There are many types of DIN Rail available, many of which conform to European (EN) and international (IEC) standards, to match with the control equipment the rail is intended to secure.

Types of DIN Rail

There are four common DIN Rail types:

  • Top Hat (EN 50022) - This 35mm wide rail is also known as TS35 rail. The EN 50022 standard specifies both a 7.5 mm and a 15 mm deep version, with slotted and unslotted versions.
  • Miniature Top Hat (EN 50045) – Also known as TS15 rail, this is a smaller version of the standard Top Hat rail, with 15 mm width and 5.5 mm depth.
  • C Section - Also called a TS-32 rail. The cross-section of C section rail looks like the letter "C", the curved rails feature a symmetrical appearance.
  • G Section (EN 50035) – This rail features a G-shaped cross-section with a curved, asymmetrical appearance.

Applications for Din Rails

DIN Rails are metal rails that are used when mounting electrical and industrial components in enclosure racks and panels, and control cabinets. They are often universal fitments to allow them to be used across a wide range of applications and fit a range of different equipment, regardless of the manufacturer which means the user can have confidence in knowing that the rail can be used securely and safely. DIN rails can save time, space and money by enabling the user to mount electrical components in a way that is secure and also safe, especially when wiring is also included.

They are often used in applications such as:

  • DIN rail terminal blocks
  • Automation and control devices
  • Power supplies
  • Robotics
  • Plug-in relays
  • Panel meters
  • I/O devices

RS Components has a large range of DIN Rails to match your exceptions from some of the leading brands such as Phoenix Contact, Omron, Fibox, Schneider Electric, ABB and our own brand RS PRO.
