I have 4 SmartSolar 100/20 CC that I need to bring together in a power distribution block that will tie to another PDB that my 2 48v LifePo4 battery banks and inverter will connect to. Each bank is using a daly BMS that is rated for max draw of 300a. If my calculations are correct does this mean I need 4 (2 positive/2 negative) distribution blocks rated for 600a? If a PDC doesn't state it's current rating but is designed for specific wire gauge (s), should it work? I like the design of this one for one applirbyt it doesn't state rating. I would use 2 of these to consolidate output to battery from CC's

InstallGear 0/2/4 AWG Gauge Power Distribution Block 1/0 Gauge in to (4) 4/8 Gauge Out

That looks like a distribution block for audio. I wouldn't use it in my system.

This is similar to what I used. I picked the first one that came, I'm not recommending it one way or the other. It's just an example.
