Game-Changing Distribution Blocks for the Mobile Market

Updated: Nov 25, 2020

Suwanee, Georgia, February 19, 2016 – Murrelektronik, the global automation systems component provider announced today the availability of a distribution block designed to deliver more power and better performance to the mobile vehicles market. Designed with ports for DEUTSCH connectors, the new xtremeDB 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.

“The xtremeDB is a game changer,” said Jon Haulton, President of Data Panel, the Murrelektronik subsidiary that developed the block. “In one block you get a higher current rating, more I/O ports and stronger, more reliable power distribution with DEUTSCH connectivity.”

xtremeDB blocks with DEUTSCH connectors have eight I/O ports and 16 configurable outputs and can do the work of multiple ordinary blocks using standard M12 connectors. As an example, in one competitive application for the rail industry, the number of blocks required would drop from 20 to 12, with an accompanying reduction in harness size, shorter cable runs and improved serviceability.

“We’re delivering major quality and performance improvements in a versatile solution that will change how control panels are developed for specialty vehicles. I’ve never been more excited to introduce a new product,” said Kristian Gullikson, Murrelektronik’s manager for mobile business development.

The xtremeDB 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.

Murrelektronik’s xtremeDB offers the push and lock dependability of DEUTSCH connectors in contrast to M12 connectivity, which can be prone to weak or loose connections in harsh locations. DEUTSCH connectors are specifically designed for critical applications in harsh environments where dust, dirt, moisture, salt spray, and rough terrain can contaminate or damage electrical connections and systems. The xtremeDB is available in five configurations and utilizes J1939, the standard communications network for sharing control and diagnostic information between electronic control units on heavy duty and commercial vehicles.
