Rittal has rounded off its AX range of compact enclosures with its newly developed plastic enclosures. The manufacturer now offers the best of two worlds: the advantages of sophisticated technology combined with the benefits of an extremely robust material. The AX plastic enclosure protects the electrical components even in very harsh environments, such as outdoors. Its new mounting functions make rapid expansion possible and provide a greater scope for installation using smart technology.
Rittal is replacing its previous KS series with the new plastic enclosures AX and so completely redefining plastic enclosure technology. The development is based on Rittal’s technology for sheet steel and stainless-steel enclosures, which can be used to greatly simplify and speed up manufacturing processes in panel building and switchgear manufacturing. Now, for the first time, plastic enclosures also feature this system technology.
The new enclosures are fully suited for outdoor use thanks to a plastic that is reinforced with glass fibres and which has a seven times higher UV resistance.
Panel builders benefit right from the start, thanks to a sophisticated enclosure concept. Speedy assembly is ensured by the presence of numerous mounting bosses inside the housing.
With the plastic enclosure AX, Rittal is for the first time transforming a plastic housing into an enclosures system – with greater scope for interior installation.
Rittal offers the plastic enclosure range in 14 different enclosure variants ranging from 250 x 350 to 800 x 1000 mm (W x H). Eight of them are available with a viewing window and six without.
