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 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.
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.
