XW6048 - what is this part?

RossmanRossman Solar Expert Posts: 178 ✭✭
G'day all,

Well I am in the process of trying to get my XW6048 up and running. When I opened the top portion of the power distribution panel, I found this "jumper" across the two metal rails right behind it (in the picture) - as soon as I moved it, it came unconnected, I am not sure what precisely what purpose this serves, as I don't see a reference to it in the wiring diagrams in the install manual.

Attachment not found.

Anyone else with an XW6048, I'd appreciate some insight on what this jumper is for!

Thanks kindly,

    Hi Mark,

    This is the mechanical stop, that helps firm-up that string of DIN Rail circuit breakers. It has NO electrical function, just helps add rigidity for those breakers, especially when not all of that Rail is full of breakers. Vic

    Thanks Vic, much appreciated!

    I cannot for the life of me, free the screw in that thing, that loosens it (so that I can put it back). Irritating. I guess I will just leave it off for now...
