Rittal’s New Free-standing SE 8 Enclosure

Keeping the costs of engineering and handling in check, free-standing enclosures are used in many areas of industry and in building services management. Typical fields of application are compact machinery and equipment, whose power distribution and automation components can be accommodated in one single enclosure.
Unlike baying suites with frames and removable side panels, the body of Rittal’s SE 8 consists of two side panels and a roof made from one piece of sheet steel. For the user, this means that both handling and installation of separate side panels are eliminated.
Depending on size, SE 8 enclosures are available as one or two-door models. One particular advantage is that due to the absence of a centre bar, doors can overlap and the 1,800 mm wide, two-door system enclosures offer unimpeded access to complete mounting plates and switch panels. Rittal’s SE 8 offers major potential savings, especially in the larger widths. One single enclosure can thus be used instead of two or three bayed ones.
Thanks to the TS 8 sections on the side panels, which Rittal produce in a unique manufacturing process, the user can now easily and quickly install the complete range of accessories familiar from the baying system in the SE 8. System accessories include virtually all the products needed in enclosure configuration. Accessories range from enclosure lights through to climate control solutions. Overall, the user also benefits from the improved interior installation capabilities. Flexibility and additional space are provided by expanding on two mounting levels.
