Rittal’s comprehensive maritime product range has expanded further with the news that its popular busbar systems RiLine, Maxi-PLS and Flat-PLS have passed the most stringent testing enabling them to be integrated within Ri4Power modular switchgear systems and used on board ships in designated sealed areas, such as engine rooms.
The busbars satisfied the vibration requirement of 0.7g in the frequency range 5 – 100 Hz. They and their related components have demonstrated their capability to operate in the toughest and most demanding environments in terms of short-circuit resistance, temperature rises, dielectric strength, thermal resistance, and use under vibration conditions. Rittal’s portfolio of enclosure and case technology is proven to protect delicate, highly sensitive and complex systems across every aspect of nautical application – from shipping on the high seas, to oil and gas extraction, to port technology – from the most challenging of external conditions. Furthermore, Rittal’s expert team can support maritime enterprises across all aspects of systems infrastructure installation from the application engineering, development supervision and prototyping phases, through to monitoring of the finished product in use.
Mark Guest, Rittal’s product manager for power says: “Customers can feel confident that our long-standing and wide-ranging experience in designing enclosure solutions for harsh ambient conditions provides assured product reliability”.
