Rittal's heavy current busbar systems approved for use on board ships

Rittal's heavy current busbar systems approved for use on board ships

The safe use of electrical equipment on board ships brings with it particular challenges. It’s an area that Rittal continues to invest in, not least to ensure its systems function effectively under the test conditions which are required by the marine industry.

Now, the efficacy of its busbar systems RiLine, Maxi-PLS and Flat-PLS has been recognised by leading international shipping organisations. Approvals for on board use have been granted by Lloyds Register (LR), Germanischer Lloyd (GL), Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). This follows the announcement last year that Maxi-PLS and Flat-PLS had successfully passed the environmental test on vibration, satisfying the requirement of 0.7g in the frequency range 5–100Hz. 

As such, these busbar systems and related components now have the required test data and documentation for: short circuit, temperature rise, dielectric strength, thermal resistance, use under vibration conditions.

RiLine, Maxi-PLS and Flat-PLS can be used on board ships in designated sealed areas, such as engine rooms, subject to observance of the required technical characteristics and the valid technical regulations. Design-type approvals will also mean use of the busbar components in maritime applications is now much easier.
