As industrial facilities replace or upgrade control systems, many plant engineers are moving beyond the challenges of unibody enclosure designs. With unibody enclosures, the skins are welded together to support the load of the system. As a result, system integrators, OEMs and facilities are limited in the configurations and modifications to meet end-use needs. Because the lifecycle of a typical industrial enclosure is filled with planned and unplanned modifications and repairs, using a unibody enclosure can increase costs and downtime.
By comparison, the new Rittal SE 8 enclosure brings together the benefits of modular design and accessories with a price point that competes with unibody enclosures. Because the strength and interior mounting are handled by the roll-formed frame section of the enclosure, the SE 8 delivers improved durability and 30% more internal space than comparable unibody designs. In addition, the SE 8 is available in 16-gauge carbon or stainless steel, and features the standard, reversible TS 8 door to accommodate modifications over the lifecycle of the enclosure.
Rittal manufactures the world’s leading industrial and IT enclosures, racks and accessories, including high-efficiency, high-density climate control and power management systems for industrial, data center, outdoor and hybrid applications. Their off-the-shelf standard, modified standard and custom-engineered products are known globally as high quality, affordable solutions for any industrial or IT infrastructure application, from single enclosures to comprehensive systems.
