Yea, I was going to hook the unit up to a 60 amp breaker.

Any suggestions on distribution blocks? Still looking for those...

Distribution connections are done at the bussbars, breakers, and contactors.. If further interconnects required use DIN mounted pheonix blocks.

Think this will work to split power from the input receptacle to the various loads? http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Molex/39910-0106/?qs=QQJxVsr8EGadqRk8HMoGrw%3d%3d

It would if you are making a PCB, but for point to point wiring use a DIN Mount terminal block or 600V rated cinch blocks, such as:

available in various styles. If you use the open back ones(non 600VAC rated) you must place an insulator behind the barrier strip.

Hmmm. It seems with those, each terminal is isolated. i.e. I couldn't attach a wire from the power in receptacle to the block, and then wire out to each load from there. I was figuring that I would need a total of 4 distribution blocks (h1, h2, neutral, ground) to keep from an unruly mess of wires.
