Rittal introduces Arc Flash products
August 13, 2008 – Rittal Corporation is introducing a variety of new products that can be incorporated into electrical systems to help ensure safety against arc flash hazards. These products will allow engineers and technicians to operate and maintain control panels without unnecessary exposure to arc flash dangers.

Among the new products are:
  • External data pockets – These pockets, which are designed to hold system-related documentation, provide secure and easy access areas outside of the control panel
  • Fold-down shelves – These fold-away shelves provide a work surface for programming and monitoring equipment outside of the control panel
  • Viewing windows and ports – These windows and ports provide visual access into a sealed control panel to monitor system status and indicators
  • Data interface flaps – These modular interface flaps provide rapid system access via integrated USB, SUB-D9 RJ 45 and NEMA 5-15 sockets when needed. The affected enclosure remains closed and is thereby protected from ambient influences and unauthorized access. These flaps allow engineers to collect data, program drives and PLCs and monitor the system without having to open the enclosure door and expose personnel to arc flash hazards.
