    I am trying to get some sort of definitive answer regarding these two multiswitches by finding out which one is newer and what the difference between them is. I tried finding out about them and from what I could find it seems like the MS6X8WB-Z is the newer of the two but I`m not positive. Thanks in advance :D

    WB68 is the old, discontinued model. It comes with small "in-the-white" ground screws and clear plastic caps over the ports.

    MS6x8WB-Z is the current model. It has larger, green-colored ground screws, rubber weather seals pre-installed, and metal screw-on caps on most ports (all but the ones you're certain to be using).

    Electrically, they are identical.
