Rittal offers new survey to check for overheating problems
29 May 2015
A Rittal RiAssure3 survey will identify the likely risk of a system overheating, which could lead to equipment tripping or failing, and suggest remedial action.
Running manufacturing automation systems at high temperatures will have a major negative impact on the system’s performance and reduce its service life. By not keeping their drives at or close to their optimum operating temperature, manufacturers risk huge consequential costs when the production line grinds to a halt as a result of system failure.
A Rittal RiAssure3 survey will identify the likely risk of a system overheating which could lead to equipment tripping or failing. The survey will review any existing cooling solution and determine how suited it is to that particular working environment. It will then provide recommendations around remedial action – for example, changes to the system’s service and maintenance regime to help improve its efficacy or the need to invest in different climate control technology.
Industry 4.0 White Paper
Also new from Rittal is the “IT infrastructure in the context of Industry 4.0” whitepaper
which is now available to download. The document is aimed at decision-makers as well as anyone responsible for production and IT and details the opportunities that Industry 4.0 is creating through new and existing infrastructures.
The whitepaper shows how IT and production can be effectively interlinked, and outlines the interdependence of “back office” and “factory” functions. It also highlights the similarity of the challenges faced by production managers and system administrators as well as the differences that continue to exist between them. To function effectively and maximise the benefits afforded by Industry 4.0 the differences between these two parts of the business must narrow.
The whitepaper identifies data quality as one of the key requirements to deliver success under Industry 4.0. There are also some suggested practical ways that businesses can start to apply Industry 4.0 methodologies and a demonstration of how Rittal components and solutions can help create an Industry 4.0 infrastructure.
