Software supports creation of models for complete 3D picture of Rittal products
Version 3 of Rittal’s RiCAD 3D software is claimed to support the creation of models to provide a complete 3D picture of Rittal products with the visualisation, layout and spacing of single components.
The RiCAD 3D database includes 2D and 3D drawings for virtually all Rittal products, together with a range of system accessories.
- Three-dimensional views of the accessories within an enclosure enable the positioning and spacing of rail or mounted equipment, cable trunking runs and the cable entry space required
- Detailed CAD product data is provided
- Users can export to all standard CAD formats (DWG, ProE 2001, ProE Wildfire, Solidworks and Step)
- Simple integration into a variety of CAD systems is ensured
- The software offers a reduction of engineering and design work
- Detailed, error-free Rittal data is provided
- Generic original data is in 3D and 2D format and there is no conversion of neutral formats
The development of a power station plant room not only provided logistical and technical issues but also harsh environmental considerations for Nova Controls during its installation of a water treatment PLC for a Yorkshire biomass site. The performance of Rittal’s Ri4power modular switchgear busbar system helped to deliver the solution that the site demanded.
Rittal is offering a large range of cooling products that are suitable for addressing the problem of overheating panels. The company’s TopTherm fan-and-filter units, for example, provide an energy efficient means of cooling enclosures but require a clean and cool environment to operate effectively.
An efficient IT infrastructure is now at the core of every modern business, but underneath the tiers of applications and operating systems a robust and reliable platform is essential. Rittal claims that its TS IT system provides optimum stability and maximum space utilisation thanks to its welded frame construction.
From 1 January 2015, it will be illegal to use any recycled or reclaimed ozone-depleting hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) R22 refrigerant gas to service cooling units. Rittal is urging companies to seek out suitable replacement products. The company’s climate control range includes enclosure cooling units with outputs from 300W to 4,000W and water chillers with capacities between 1kW and 481kW.
At DatacenterDynamics Converged London 2014, Rittal will showcase its RiMatrix S data centre for small to medium-sized enterprises. Packed into a shipping container on the back of an articulated lorry, the data centre will also appear at a series of roadshows.
