Rittal will be showcasing its top-of-the-range PADS and LUL-approved range of enclosures at Infrarail 2016.
Enclosures have a vital role to play both in ensuring the safety and security of electrical equipment and also in protecting the people who operate it. Rittal is one of the world’s leading system suppliers for housing and enclosure technologies, combining a focus on energy conservation with efficient engineering. The company’s renowned infrastructure system offers five perfectly matched modules: rack, power, cooling, security and monitoring and remote management.
The company will be exhibiting a range of Network Rail Approved Outdoor Enclosure systems including a range of double-walled CS enclosure systems used extensively in Long Line PA applications as well as on level crossing controls. Made of aluminium alloy, AlMg3, which offers exceptional corrosion resistance, the CS enclosure has many built-in features include fan and filter cooling, and anti-graffiti Ri-Nano paint finish, 19” angles front and rear, fan trays, light units and door mounted switches, telescopic shelves, heaters and temperature controllers. The enclosure’s robust but lightweight frame means that only two people are needed to position it.
For installations of outdoor free-standing enclosures there are custom-built Rittal pre-cast concrete base/plinths which significantly reduce the time and cost of the install, as well as preventing disruption to services by removing the need to mix concrete and remove waste from site.
Significant cost and time savings can be accrued in terms of the civil engineering work required to install the enclosures, since existing NR bases could be re-used rather than having to purchase new
Other key products in the range include wall-mounted boxes and pole-mounting kits to fasten metal and non-metal enclosures to round and square poles and Rittal TS IT racks. The racks are simple and flexible enclosure systems which feature snap-in technology, flexible internal configuration, intelligent cable management system, vented doors and multi-functional roofs.
European and global networks predominantly run on Rittal’s “The System” solution, utilising enclosure technologies, electronics packaging, power distribution, UPS, climate control, IT Solutions including high density cooling, control and monitoring solutions along with the integration and service to support these technologies.
Visitors to the show will also be able to find out more about the company’s popular busbar systems Ri4Power electrical power distribution system and latest Power Engineering planning software. The software provides comprehensive support in planning and verifying standardised Ri4Power switchgear, as required by IEC 61439-1/-2 standard. As with all Rittal’s solutions the power distribution range has been subject to the most stringent testing, demonstrating their capability to operate in the toughest and most demanding environments.
Rittal will have a highly qualified team of representatives at Infrarail 2016 who can support clients at all stages of the project design through to installation and commissioning
