Rittal introduces support arm series covering load ranges up to 180kg
Support arm range
Rittal has introduced its support arm series, which, in one uniform design, covers all the load ranges up to 180kg. With Rittal support arm systems, control panels can be easily and accurately turned, lifted and swivelled, ensuring operators can monitor their machines at any time.
The support arm system is quick to assemble, simple to adjust, suitable for individual installations, designed in a uniform way, capable of bearing high loads and can facilitate cable management.
Support arm systems can be created for the 60kg, 120kg and 180kg load levels (relative to a jib length of 1m) with a uniform function, installation and project planning system.
The system, consisting of support section, intermediate hinge and angle pieces, can be mounted on top of a machine or on a side panel. Wall and base mountings, as well as flexible top-mounted joints and wall mounted hinges, are available with horizontal outlets for assembly.
To help select the right support arm system, an interactive online configurator ensures rapid engineering, helping to configure the appropriate support arm solution with minimal effort.
Averex — said to be the world’s first robotic wiring centre — has been used at Kiesling Maschinentechnik, a specialist for automation solutions in switchgear manufacture, as one of two real-world field tests it has to undergo.
Rittal has ‘docked’ its SE 8 enclosure system to its existing TS 8 platform, which now offers the same configuration options as traditional baying systems. Users are no longer forced to fall back on an enclosure system different from baying suites when preferring to use free-standing enclosures as standalone solutions. Rittal’s SE 8 enclosures use the same accessories for standalone applications as with the TS 8 bayed enclosures.
Rittal has launched three accredited seminars to support customers in their continuing professional development (CPD). The seminars have been reviewed and assessed by the Chartered Institute of Building Engineers (CIBSE) to ensure the technical content is of a high standard and offers valuable CPD to delegates. All attendees will receive a certificate as evidence of their participation.
As this Rittal-sponsored white paper explains, competitiveness in a global economy requires continuous innovation and accelerated go-to-market cycles, as well as agility in deploying resources. This is particularly true for midsize companies that have to leverage technology to gain an advantage over peers and larger corporations.
Rittal’s support arm and housing systems are being used by engineering specialist Laempe & Mössner, which produces several lines of core shooters and equips its core shooting machines with the systems.
