IS THIS MERELY A TERMINAL STRIP OR ARE THE CONNECTORS FUSED?
Is so, for how many amps?
Is there something better on the market, thirty years on?
These 'terminal strips' look to be circuit DC breakers. It's not a bad design, as I've seen them used today, but I would use better components if I were to re-design that connection point. I'm sure that Blue-Sea will have an appropriate model to use in this application.
Remember to use only an 'auto-reset' circuit breaker for your brakes!
