German term or phrase: Sammelschienenklemmen
No idea.

"Die Absicherung der einzelnen Verbraucher erfolgt über Leitungsschutzschalter oder Neozed- Lasttrennschalter mit einem Nennstrom von 10 A an. Bei Schmelzsicherungen und Leitungsschutzschaltern mit einem kleineren Nennstrom (< 10 A) ist der Spannungsabfall (bzw. Innenwiderstand pro Pol) zu hoch. Diese Betriebsmittel (< 10 A) werden daher nicht verwendet.
Abbildung 10: Beispielaufbau einer Powerbox 48 V DC mit LS-Schaltern (z.B. System ABB smissline) und redundantem Aufbau Die Minusleitung der 48 V DC Zuleitung wird auf Reihenklemmen des Einspeiseblocks in der Powerbox geführt. Die geerdete Plusleitung der 48 V DC Zuleitung wird auf Sammelschienenklemmen geführt."
