Rittal’s RiLine busbar system for AC and DC applications

Efficient drive systems, idle power loss reductions and the renewable energy sector all require safe, reliable DC solutions and while they cannot replace AC applications across the board, they are definitely growing in importance.

Rittal is the world’s first manufacturer to offer an approved busbar system with standard components, optimised for both AC and DC applications. No other products are required.

DC busbar systems are increasingly deployed in converter buses, DC power backup systems, photovoltaics, galvanics, energy storage systems and in shipbuilding. The system has a current carrying capacity of up to 1600A, a nominal voltage of up to 1500V DC and a short-circuit rating of up to 40kA. Rittal’s RiLine is approved to IEC 61439 and UL 845 in conjunction with UL 508, making it suitable for a wide range of industries.

Depending on requirements, busbar systems can be made of copper, aluminium or cuponal, a copper-clad aluminium busbar from Rittal. RiLine’s assembly parts, such as connection adapters up to 800A, OM component adaptors with tension spring clamps and CB Series compact circuit breaker adaptors up to 250A, are suitable for DC applications. The following fuse components can be deployed: size 00-3 NH bus-mounting fuse bases up to 630A and size 00 NH slimline fuse-switch disconnectors up to 160A, with corresponding DC fuses.

A World of Knowledge with Rittal CIBSE CPD Seminars

Rittal Ltd has launched three new accredited seminars to support customers in their Continuing Professional Development (CPD). The seminars have been reviewed and assessed by the Chartered Institute of Building Engineers (CIBSE), to ensure the technical content is of a high standard and offers valuable CPD to delegates. All attendees will receive a certificate as evidence of their participation.

The seminars, which are free of charge, take the form of short informative presentations, a workshop and are as follows:

Building a Data Centre in the Perfect Storm:

Covering aspects of complete relocation of a Data Centre, including refurbishment and regeneration, this CPD seminar takes the form of a real life case study of Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC). Connecting 130,000 users across 700 buildings and 60,000 computers the case study looks at how NCC delivered a new state of the art data centre and coping with the perfect brain storm of migration and updating whilst maintaining essential IT services.

Aimed at all levels of mechanical engineers, facilities managers, estate managers, electrical engineers and IT managers, this course can be presented at consultant and contractors offices or at Rittal’s specialist Data Centre location in Enfield.

An Introduction to the Application of IEC 61439:

Designed to give a brief introduction to the IEC 61439 (the new switchgear and controlgear assembly production standard), this seminar looks at how it should be applied to the design and manufacture of low voltage switchgear and controlgear assemblies.

Incorporating four key parts: enclosures, climate control, busbar and the devices, the standard looks at assemblies as a total system and not as individual components and how they react together and perform under test conditions.

Aimed at all levels of expertise within engineering departments, courses can be either presented at consultant or contractors offices or at Rittal’s Head Office showroom and demonstration centre in South Yorkshire, Rittal’s offices in Livingston or, alternatively, at Rittal’s production factory in Plymouth.

Date Centre Energy Efficiency:

Looking at different strategies that can be implemented and the potential gains and compromises that could occur, this seminar covers a broad spectrum of technologies and processes including Data Networks, Data Centres, Computer Rooms, Heating and Ventilation as well as IT infrastructure and Building Management.

Aimed at all levels of mechanical engineers, facilities managers, estates managers, electrical engineers and IT managers, this CPD course can either be presented at consultants and contractors offices or at Rittal’s specialist Data Centre location in Enfield.
