Cut enclosure configuration time by 95%

Cut enclosure configuration time by 95%

The Rittal Configuration System (RiCS) is a new user-friendly design tool, for error-free accessory configurations of small and compact enclosures. Rittal says the process is so fast and streamlined that it is estimated it can reduce the time it takes for a user to choose, configure and purchase a compact enclosure by up to 95%

Once an enclosure has been chosen, users are then able to browse through a pre-loaded online catalogue of accessories. RiCs contains an extensive range of more than 250 accessories in total, but the system only presents each user with components that are suitable for their cabinet.  Once chosen, each accessory can be positioned within an online 3D model of the enclosure.

In addition, RiCs enables the user to mark-out the positions of cut-outs and drill holes for later individual machining of the product. This built-in capability means that there is no need to switch to alternative CAD programmes during the planning of the enclosure.

Once an enclosure has been fully configured, the system provides a downloadable CAD file that can either be loaded straight into a Rittal Perforex machine (for tailored machining on-site) or the machining can be done by Rittal prior to shipping. In each case, the machining is tailored to the millimetre to ensure absolute precision throughout every step of the process.

Meanwhile an order for the enclosure and its accessories can be placed online via the Rittal shop.

What’s more, customers can transfer the data from the Configurator to the EPLAN Pro Panel. This creates a 3D electromechanical design of the enclosure and comprehensive production documentation for the workshop, which both speeds up installation and improves the quality of the final enclosure.

Rittal has produced a webinar explaining how the new software simplifies the enclosure configuration process.
