A DIN rail is a metal rail used to mount electrical devices in control cabinets, enclosures racks, and panels. DIN Rail is manufactured to conform to a specific set of standards outlined by the Deutsch Institute von Normen (DIN). Due to the uniform profile, it ensures electronic devices such as circuit breakers, relays, and power supplies can be sourced from several different manufacturers and suppliers, safe in the knowledge all products can be mounted on the same rail.
