What is a Power Distribution Block Stud?

Also known as:

  • Battery Feed Studs
  • Battery Jumper Terminals
  • Battery Jumper Studs
  • Jump Starts
  • Junction Blocks
  • Pass Through Devices
  • Power Feed Blocks
  • Shrouded Power Feed Blocks
  • Stud Blocks
  • Stud Type Junction Blocks

Power distribution block studs are used to handle the supply of power circuits to a vehicle’s electrical systems. There are two different categories of power distribution blocks – bussed and independent.

Bussed power distribution blocks will take a single, larger, input cable. This allows the electric to be split to smaller cables for branched circuits. Smaller ground cables can be attached to the ground buss and connected to the battery for power.

Independent power distribution block studs contain barrier terminal blocks, or stud type junction blocks. With these products, the connections are “independent” from each other and not connected internally. This permits multiple individual circuits to be routed to a single location where each circuit can have multiple connections going to it.
