“Rittal – The System” on show at Drives and Controls 2016
15 April 2016
Rittal showcased some of its leading enclosure technologies at Drives and Controls 2016.
Visitors to Rittal’s Stand D230 were able to view its innovative modular enclosures, power distribution, and climate control systems.
Of particular note was the presence of the new Blue e+ climate control system which was launched last year to great acclaim due to its energy savings and flexibility.
There was also the chance to understand more about panel building automation, as well as servicing and maintenance programs, designed to maximise your system’s efficiency, flexibility and longevity.
The company’s popular demonstration bus was on Stand D964 giving visitors a “hands on” experience and live demonstration of Rittal products.
Rittal – the system
The company’s infrastructure system – “Rittal - The System” - offers five perfectly matched modules: rack, power, cooling, security and monitoring and remote management.
Based around Rittal’s TS 8 control cabinet and TS IT rack system platform, “Rittal - The System” offers modular, custom-fit solutions, providing maximum rack volumes, high levels of surface protection, stability and endless expansion possibilities.
Today, more than 10 million TS 8 bayed enclosure are deployed across a huge range of industries worldwide. Critical to its success has been its flexibility and efficiency, high quality, safety standards, and its global availability.
Also on show was a selection of Rittal’s cost-effective wall boxes. Compact enclosures AE provide highly technical solutions to protect the valuable systems within. Their attributes and many benefits include corrosion resistance and a range of accessories for easy assembly and security.
A new selection of enclosures designed for the food industry was on display. Produced with a slanted roof and a lip over the door, any liquid or food products that happen to fall onto the enclosure can easily slide off, keeping the enclosure contamination free. The seal of the was also made from one single piece of material, blue for the food industry, keeping the door to the enclosure doubly protected.
The Blue e+ climate control system is a major advance for both the industrial and IT sectors and provides benefits to all users. It addresses common problems of panel builders, systems integrators, original equipment manufacturers and end users alike.
As well as being more energy efficient than existing cooling solutions, the Blue e+ uses technologies to deliver greater flexibility, safety and ease of handling.
Key to the efficacy of the Blue e+ is Rittal’s innovative patented hybrid system which uses a clever combination of a compressor cooling device and a heat pipe to take maximum advantage of passive cooling.
As a consequence, energy savings have been up to 75 percent better than conventional units – a quantum leap forward for cooling systems, and a major incentive for manufacturers seeking to minimise steep rises in energy prices.
Visitors to Drives and Controls 2016 were able to find out more about Rittal’s popular busbar systems and the modular Ri4Power power distribution system supported by latest Power Engineering design software.
The latter provides comprehensive support in planning and verifying compliance to the IEC 61439-1/-2 switchgear and control gear standard.
As with all Rittal’s solutions the power distribution range has been subject to the most stringent testing, demonstrating its capability to operate in the toughest and most demanding environments.
Automation in panel building
The machines and solutions provided by Rittal Automation systems facilitate the optimisation of the complete work-flow in Rittal’s panel building manufacture, from machining of the panel parts and automated wiring of the panels to testing of the finished panel, supported by a diversity of handling systems such as the Assemblex.
The Assemblex is designed to give Panel Builders easy access when constructing and building the panel. Simple to manoeuvre, panel builders can easily wheel parts across a production floor and slide the components into place, without risking physical damage or exertion.
