Global production as per Industry 4.0

Global production as per Industry 4.0
A centre for manufacturing large enclosures is currently under construction at Rittal’s Rittershausen plant, based on Industry 4.0 principles. While work there is ongoing, Rittal is also installing high-tech production lines for its VX25 large enclosure, at a total cost of €120m. The company is gearing up its production to Industry 4.0 through consistent digitisation of processes and fully automated profiling, welding and panel manufacturing units, making the new centre a model for all Rittal production plants worldwide.

Edge Data Center paves the way for Industry 4.0 applications

Edge Data Center paves the way for Industry 4.0 applications
Real time capabilities are required for companies that employ machine-to-machine communication to streamline manufacturing. IT resources deployed in close geographical proximity ensure that latency is low, and data readily available. The Rittal Edge Data Centre provides an effective answer to this need. It is a turn-key, pre-configured solution based on standardised infrastructure. It can be implemented rapidly and cost-efficiently - paving the way for Industry 4.0 applications.

Compact motor controllers save enclosure space

Compact motor controllers save enclosure space
Typically, small drives for machines and equipment are powered up to 9.0A and are protected by conventional motor circuit breakers. However, when space in the enclosure is limited, it is very difficult to find room for significant numbers of protective components. Rittal’s new motor controllers for its RiLine Compact power distribution system offer a solution. To help engineers, Rittal has also produced a 3D configurator that reduces the time required to generate Compact RiLine busbar systems.

Let's calculate the value of automation

Let's calculate the value of automation
It is clear that CNC machining centres, such as Perforex from Rittal Automation Systems are completely ahead of the alternative, manual approach when it comes to productivity and efficiency in processing panels. In fact, machining centres speed up processing by as much as 66% compared to the traditional hand-tooled method.

Designing and sizing a busbar

Designing and sizing a busbar
Having significant implications for the design and performance of the copper busbar system, the introduction of the IEC 61439 switchgear and control standards, is an area which design engineers need to appreciate, not least because the new testing regime and the requirement for compliance has changed the way we think about the selection of the busbar system.

Support arm offers automatic potential equalisation

Support arm offers automatic potential equalisation
Rittal has claimed that it is the first manufacturer to ensure automatic potential equalisation as a standard with its CP 60/120/180 support arm system, without any extra work and additional costs to users. With this support arm system, all the rotating elements have so-called sliding contacts to ensure a reliable electrical contact throughout the entire system.
