Rittal to introduce digital enclosure solutions at “The smarter E Europe” fair

May 3, 2019 – With a view to achieving future economic success, the process of networking and digitalizing value chains offers plant engineers opportunities for boosting their productivity. Under the banner “Answers 4.0”, Rittal is appearing at “The smarter E Europe” fair to demonstrate digital technologies.

Rittal offers solutions and products that enable panel building and switchgear manufacturers to lay the foundations for gradually forming a digital value chain. Its portfolio ranges from engineering and system solutions for enclosure technology and automation systems such as cable processing machinery through to hand-held tools.

Other responses to the challenge known as Industry 4.0 come in the shape of the AX and KX range of enclosures on show at the fair and the VX25 enclosure system. Ensuring plant engineers are equipped for digitalization, these enclosures feature digital elements that make them suitable for the digital value chain in panel building and switchgear engineering. Besides 3D data and configuration tools, examples include QR codes on all the panels to be machined to incorporate them into the production workflow, thereby paving the way for cutting-edge digital monitoring at every stage. The first enclosures will be available from summer 2019.

Rittal is showcasing system solutions for housing the control and power electronics used in photovoltaics. The manufacturer is presenting the AX and KX, for example, as enclosure systems for integrating solar tracking system electronics. Fitting doors and locking systems, for instance, generally no tools are required. Another feature is their modular design, cut-outs and gland plates freeing more space for routing cables. Rittal is also demonstrating how converter systems can be integrated into enclosures with the VX25 enclosure system.

Rittal components are suitable for developing infrastructure solutions for energy storage systems, too. Ranging from standalone enclosure systems to end-to-end container solutions, the company’s selection of standardised, coordinated, globally available and certified components provides system integrators and plant engineers with mechanical, power distribution and climate control solutions. As a case study for an energy storage enclosure, Rittal is presenting the VX25, in which all standard battery modules can be integrated. Rittal is also showcasing energy storage enclosures from the companies Commeo and Tesvolt.
