Rittal GmbH & Co. KG is the world's leading supplier of control cabinets, power distribution, air conditioning, IT infrastructure and software & service for the protection and safe operation of electrical systems.
Rittal GmbH & Co. KG, headquartered in Herborn, Germany, is a leading global provider of solutions for industrial enclosures, power distribution, climate control and IT infrastructure – as well as software and services.
Systems made by Rittal are deployed across a variety of industrial and IT applications, including vertical sectors such as the transport industry, power generation, mechanical and plant engineering, IT and telecommunications.
In collaboration with sister company Eplan and their smart software tools, Rittal is automating processes in switchgear engineering, manufacture, and integration that were previously manual. The result is greater efficiency in terms of both capital and operating expenditure (CapEx and OpEx) for wind turbines.
Rittal products deliver the strength, vibration resistance and corrosion protection vital to turbine dependability.
Highly robust AX compact enclosures help ensure the pitch system located in the rotor hub operates reliably. To shield frequency inverters and control and safety components in the turbine’s nacelle or tower, Rittal offers modular solutions based on its new VX25 large enclosure system.
The enterprise’s Blue e+ range, the world’s most efficient cooling units, provides the ideal form of climate control for enclosures. Furthermore, the IoT capabilities of these systems lay the foundations for more intelligent, more targeted maintenance.
Rittal's modular Ri4Power system supports the configuration of low-voltage switchgear in compliance with relevant standards. In addition, options for energy storage systems range from individual enclosures to complete containerised solutions.
Rittal also offers modular edge data centres, featuring low latency and maximum security for processing data.
