enclosures RITTAL’S NEW PC ENCLOSURE Now with even greater security the new PC enclosure from Rittal with integrally moulded side panels and roof, internally glazed door and lockable keyboard drawer provides increased protection against unauthorised access. Fully compatible with Rittals range of system accessories with options of glazed doors, keyboard drawers, desk sections and small to large mounting compartments, Rittal‘s PC enclosure system can accommodate all computer equipment from monitor, computer system, printer and keyboard to the mouse. Providing a Protection category of IP 55 the new PC enclosure based on Rittal’s SE 8, replaces the PC enclosure based on TS 8. The latter will be available from stock for a further 6 months (Rittal Product Lifecycle Policy).

The changeover to Rittal’s TopTherm fan-and-filter unit has been made as simple as possible by maintaining the air throughputs and cut-out dimensions of the previous product range. Original equipment manufacturers, panel builders and end users alike may upgrade to the new fan-and-filter without any change to the metalwork in which it is to be installed. The same may be said of Rittal’s TopTherm Blue e cooling unit, as the cooling outputs, mounting cut-outs and dimensions of the series that it replaces, have been maintained. Improved performance against increased static pressure difference results in an extended filter service life that not only reduces running costs but also saves time due to longer maintenance intervals. RiDiag II is a useful software tool for the TopTherm Blue e cooling unit, allowing the parameters of cooling units to be changed quickly and easily, as well as stored remotely. The RiNano coated condenser in Rittal’s cooling units extends servicing intervals by minimising the adhesion of water, dirt and oil, ensuring a more consistent cooling output for a longer period of time.

These loggers have a rugged, waterproof and dustproof design, and if required, accompanying probes are available for measuring extremes of temperature, product core temperatures, or for comparison of both ambient and process temperatures. The range includes a thermocouple logger which supports type K, J, T and N thermocouples, providing fast response, versatile monitoring from -270°C to 1370°C. Specialist ATEX validated units are also available for use in intrinsically safe areas. Manufactured in the UK, the Tinytag range includes a wide choice of units for accurately monitoring temperature, humidity, single and three phase power usage, CO2 and other environmental parameters across many industries and applications. Data from the loggers is downloaded to a PC via a USB connection and viewed with easy to use Tinytag Explorer software.

A selection of wall-mounted cooling units, with nominal outputs in the range 300-1500 W and rated operating voltages of 230 V AC and 400 V AC, are now also available from stock. Cooling units keep the air inside an enclosure below a maximum permissible temperature, which may be even lower than that of the air surrounding it. The ambient air is used to cool refrigerant, which removes the heat from the air inside the enclosure, at a high temperature and pressure. However, due to separate internal and external air circuits, these units satisfy an ingress protection category of IP54 and the air inside the enclosure is simply recirculated preventing the ingress of dust or other contaminants into the enclosure. To lessen their impact on the environment and reduce operating costs Rittal’s TopTherm Generation Blue e cooling units incorporate energy efficient EC fans, revised components in the refrigerant circuit and an energy saving control strategy. The Eco-mode software, which restricts the use of the internal fan, can have a significant impact on energy consumption, particularly in periods when no cooling is required. As a result of the now standard pricing and ready availability of wall-mounted stainless steel cooling units, Rittal can respond quickly to demands for enclosure cooling when standard units do not meet the needs of the application. Equipment destined for, for example, the food and beverage and offshore industries may fall into this category.
