Panel Builder System Integrator

Rittal

March 29, 2018

It can be seen on 23 April. After five years of development work, Rittal will be unveiling its new large enclosure system at the 2018 Hanover Trade Fair for the very first time. The company is showing the innovative enclosure on the highlight area of its over 2,300 m² exhibition space. Further highlights include the new base/plinth system, the support arm system CP, with new height-adjustable support section for machine operations, and smart solutions for cooling enclosures, machinery and IT, as well as the new Secure Edge Data Center.

Besides the premiere of its new large enclosure system, Rittal is presenting the new integration solution – a symbiosis of enclosure and cooling unit – and a Ri4Power application for low-voltage switchgear. These show that the benefits of the new large enclosure system are not only in the enclosure itself, but in the systemic interaction with the cooling unit and the power distribution components.

New base/plinth system for simple assembly

Another highlight to be seen at the booth is the new base/plinth system, combining all the advantages of the existing TS 8 and Flex Block base/plinth systems in one solution. It greatly simplifies the mounting of the base/plinth and also integrates other functions such as the secure mounting of cables using standard punched sections.

Other new products from Rittal include the support arm system CP, with new height-adjustable support section for the ergonomic arrangement of a panel or control components on machines and systems, as well as the completion of the range of LED system lights.

Smart cooling solutions, greater efficiency

The new Blue e+ wall-mounted cooling units with a 1.6 kW cooling output and the Blue e+ chillers with cooling outputs of 2.5 to 6 kW ensure greater energy efficiency when cooling enclosures and machines. Rittal is making these cooling solutions able to communicate with the new IoT interface for Industry 4.0 applications.

And finally, the company is launching a whole new range of IT cooling solutions for individual racks and entire data centers. The new range of products includes coolant-based cooling solutions with a cooling output of 20 kW, hybrid solutions (with indirect free cooling) with a 35-kw cooling output, as well as a new generation of water-cooled IT cooling solutions.

Secure edge data centers for Industry 4.0

Yet another IT innovation is the new Secure Edge Data Center. This turnkey data center solution developed by Rittal together with global partners ABB and HPE is designed to operate in tough industrial environments. With the aid of secure edge data centers, companies can now access and respond to critical data in real time. This brings IT capacities closer to the location of data acquisition and machine control.

Digital value chain in accordance with Industry 4.0

Trade visitors to the exhibition booth can also experience the value chain in control and switchgear engineering from an industrial 4.0 perspective. The Rittal Automation Systems Business Unit supports workshop processes – from manual tools to fully automatic systems – with its range of solutions.

The Smart Engineering and Production 4.0 technology network of Eplan, Rittal and Phoenix Contact at Hanover Trade Fair 2018 (Hall 8, Booth D28) will also be providing answers to the question of how industrial engineering and production processes can be completely digitized. A remarkable live demonstration using the example of a switchgear installation will show visitors what highly automated manufacturing based on a batch size of 1 works.

At the 2018 Hanover Fair, Rittal’s sister company EPLAN will be presenting the first glimpses into the upcoming version 2.8 of the EPLAN platform in Hall 6, Booth H30. This offers surprises with decisive innovations in ergonomics, which will not only accelerate engineering even further, but also advance automation and standardisation through extensions of macro technology.

A World Without Downtime

Utopias are common in fiction, from Plato’s The Republic to The Federation in Star Trek. For manufacturers, a world without unplanned downtime would be the perfect utopia. The question is, is abolishing unplanned downtime a far-fetched dream, or is it closer than we think? Here, Jonathan Wilkins, marketing director of obsolete industrial equipment supplier, EU Automation shares his vision for a downtime free age.

According to research by Oneserve, machine downtime is costing British manufacturers over £180 billion a year. Unplanned downtime halts production, but can also lead to wasted raw materials or damage to the system itself – amplifying the cost beyond loss of production. Further research conducted by GE Digital found that 70 per cent of companies lack full awareness of when equipment is due for maintenance, upgrade or repair..

Rockwell Automation HMI Improving Operator Efficiency Rockwell Automation has updated its HMI software to equip industrial workers with better information to run and maintain their systems. New features in the FactoryTalk View software version 10.0 include greater access to information, new mobile device support and better cross-software integration to improve productivity. Operators can now use the TrendPro tool in FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) software to overlay alarm information on trend data. This feature can help them connect alarm occurrences with data-point values to speed up troubleshooting. They can also use the tool to save and share ad hoc trends with other workers.
