Visitors to this year’s Drives and Controls show will be able to see Rittal’s infrastructure solution on the company’s stand D720 along with some product innovations at next week’s show at the NEC.
“Rittal - The System” has five, compatible components: enclosure, power, cooling, security, and monitoring with remote management, all of which will be on show. Alongside them will be information about panel-building automation, as well as servicing and maintenance programmes, designed to maximise a system’s efficiency, flexibility and longevity.
The innovations being showcased include an extension of the RiLine Compact power distribution system in the form of the new motor control unit. Added to which, engineers will be demonstrating the company’s new push-in conductor connection clamps for the fast and tool-free mounting and connecting of cables to busbars.
The Blue e+ cooling unit range has also been upgraded and extended. It now includes appliances in the lower output range with a cooling output of 1.6 kW (previously 2 to 6 kW). Furthermore, the new IoT Interface means Blue e+ cooling units can be networked with customer-specific monitoring and energy management systems. This, in turn, makes it possible to add new applications such as predictive maintenance and data analytics.
Challenging the Edge
The digitisation of processes now generates huge volumes of highly sensitive data. Companies running an IT infrastructure that comprises just three or four racks require an IT environment that combines easy installation with cost-efficient and fail-safe operation. Rittal will be using the event to exhibit quick and easy IT solutions for all applications. IT product highlights on display at the show will include the TS IT rack and IT cooling units.
Visitors who have Rittal enclosure cooling solutions, such as top therm, roof-mounted fans, Blue e or Blue e+ cooling units, installed in their enclosures, and who book a free inspection survey at the show, will have the chance to enter a prize draw to win an iPad.
