Enjoyed the article on the Weidmuller PRO-M series Power Supplies. I know you can get them in various places, but I have discovered a resource that I wanted to share where I have found a limitless supply of all kinds of Weidmuller parts.

Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
