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.
Rittal’s Therm 6.3 software is designed to simplify the often time-consuming and complicated calculation of enclosure cooling and heating requirements.
According to Rittal, its fan-and-filter units with EC (electronically commutated) motors should be the preferred choice for energy efficiency in enclosure climate control, as their operating ratio is significantly higher than standard AC fan-and-filter units.
Efficient drive systems, idle power loss reductions and the renewable energy sector all require safe, reliable DC solutions and, while they cannot replace AC applications across the board, they are definitely growing in importance. Rittal is offering an approved busbar system with standard components, optimised for both AC and DC applications. No other products are required.
Rittal has expanded its modular TS IT rack to offer more than 100 configurations, providing customers with more options and greater flexibility for their IT enclosures. The range of enclosures comprises a selection of dimensions that can be combined with a choice of interior components.
For switchgear with ratings above 1,600A, air circuit breakers (ACBs) and copper connections have to be tested for short circuit and the effects of heat rise. Rittal’s latest RPE software (version 6.2) can supply the actual current-carry capacity (Inc) of all leading ACB manufacturers, plus the CAD drawings of the ACB connections required to fit within the Ri4Power modular switchgear systems.
