Experience – Engineering Enclosures – fighting fit for the energy transition

Bring on the storms and heavy seas!

Offshore wind turbines are exposed to extreme conditions on the high seas and must reliably brave the elements for 25 years and more. This is no easy feat for the technology inside – or for system suppliers such as Rittal. The company supplies appropriate enclosure technology for today’s largest and most powerful wind turbines – and for many other renewable energy applications.

Suddenly a mass producer

Can a switchgear manufacturer suddenly become a mass producer and handle large-scale production involving thousands of enclosures? It is unusual in a sector where small series and one-off systems are the norm. Beckhoff Automation is an exception, though. The automation and control technology specialist understands how to leverage the benefits of standardisation.

À la carte for data centres

Simple selection, quick service! There is now a ready-configured Eplan project for data centres that provides a new efficiency boost when it comes to planning switchgear systems. The Industry Standard Project, developed jointly by Rittal mit Siemens, now makes it quick and easy to implement dependable power supplies for data centres that offer high availability.

Visualising spare parts in 3D

The preparation of spare parts catalogues is a complex task that requires careful planning, efficient data management systems and continuous updating. The new Cideon Sparify cloud-based web application simplifies the whole process.

Experience – Information technology PLM and Engineering-to-Order

Booster for SAP processes

Managing data flows digitally from the outset using an SAP PLM solution makes company processes fast and flexible. The “process booster” has been successfully implemented at Schenck Process. Together with Cideon and BDF, the world market leader for integrated measurement and process technology has standardised its order management and taken it to a whole new level.

Innovation The power of energy

News around the world

The future of the energy (transition) is smart: Only a smart grid can guarantee the stability of the increasingly decentralised energy systems. However, the backbone of a successful energy transition is a robust electricity grid. Rittal offers the system solutions required to shape the transformation of energy supply, especially for the Energy & Power sector.
