'Rittal – The System' on show at Drives and Controls

If you are attending the Drives and Controls show next week you will be able to see Rittal’s renowned infrastructure solution – claimed to be the No.1 choice for protecting critical equipment - plus some exciting new product innovations. ‘Rittal - The System’ has five, wholly compatible components: enclosure, power, cooling, security, and monitoring with remote management, all of which will be on show.  

Alongside them will be information about panel-building automation, as well as servicing and maintenance programmes, designed to maximise a system’s efficiency, flexibility and longevity.  

Rittal will be covering key issues such as:  

  • How can controller and switchgear manufacturers implement Industry 4.0 (Internet of Things) solutions, automate production processes and set up data centres quickly and easily?
  • How can systems and people be reliably protected against danger?
  • How can power consumption be made transparent and significantly reduced?
  • How can maintenance scenarios for cooling devices be planned in advance?
  • How can enclosures in the food industry be hygienically climate controlled?

Innovations in power distribution and climate control
Rittal will also be showcasing product development and innovation at the show. These include an extension of its RiLine Compact power distribution system in the form of the new RiLine Compact motor control unit.  Added to which, the team will be demonstrating the company’s new push-in conductor connection clamps for the fast and tool-free mounting and connecting of cables to busbars.

The Blue e+ cooling unit range has also been upgraded and extended. It now includes appliances in the lower output range with a cooling output of 1.6kW (previously 2-6kW).

Furthermore, the new IoT Interface means Blue e+ cooling units can be networked with customer-specific monitoring and energy management systems. This, in turn, makes it possible to add new applications such as predictive maintenance and data analytics.

Challenging the edge
The digitisation of processes now generates huge volumes of highly sensitive data.

Companies running an IT infrastructure that comprises just three or four racks require an IT environment that combines easy installation with cost-efficient and fail-safe operation.

Rittal will be using the event to exhibit quick and easy IT solutions for all applications. IT product highlights on display at the show will include the hugely popular TS IT rack and IT cooling units.

Smart Engineering at Eplan
Rittal will be supported at Drives and Controls 2018 by its sister company Eplan (on stand D712).  Eplan will be showcasing innovative solutions for enhanced engineering efficiency and demonstrating the benefits of EPLAN Cogineer.
