rittal0919Rittal has a new compact and Small housing series AX and KX developed. In order for plant manufacturers to be even better prepared for digitization, the housings fit very well into the digital value added chain of control and switchgear engineering. In addition to high-quality 3D data and configuration tools, for example, QR codes on all flat parts to be processed simplify their integration into the production workflow.

This enables modern digital monitoring from goods receipt to completion. The AX and KX are suitable for the electrical equipment of wind turbines. The small and compact enclosures offer easier and faster assembly, are flexible and secure. The installation of doors and locking systems, which is usually possible without tools, is becoming simpler. Another advantage is the extra space that AX and KX offer compared to their predecessor series. Optimized cut-outs and larger flange plates create up to a third more space on average for cable entry.

So that plant builders are even better prepared for digitization, the housings fit very well into the digital value chain of control and switchgear construction. In addition to high-quality 3D data and configuration tools, QR codes on all flat parts to be machined, for example, simplify their integration into the production workflow.
  • The Kristal Solar Park is the largest photovoltaic system in the Benelux. Thanks to the corrosion-protected steel supplied by Wuppermann, it stands on a secure foundation. The steel coated with Z1200 has a zinc layer of 1200 g / m and is rolled by Voestalpine Sadef as an integral part of its “Fastslide” solar mounting system in ram posts.
  • Technical articles The development partners Schaeffler and Bonfiglioli have developed a compact Industry 4.0 solution package. Schaeffler combines its two proven measuring systems "Smartcheck" and "Torquesense" into a new condition and torque monitoring system.
  • Intersolar Hall B3, Booth 130 Kostal presents the PV hybrid inverter "Plenticore plus", which, in combination with the "BYD Battery Box H11.5", recently became the most efficient storage system at the HTW Berlin's power storage inspection and was also awarded a TOP by an independent jury Innovation has been awarded. Available in five power classes between 4,2 and 10 kW, it is suitable for almost every house size - regardless of the roof orientation.
  • At Husum Wind, Harting presented right-angled current sensors for mounting on busbars and the "Han ES Press" connector with jumpers on the insulating body. It can be used for quick, tool-free wiring or changes in the field. The focus was also on the new rotary transmitter for light waves with bidirectional data transmission. This fulfills the requirements of an even faster data exchange between the nacelle and the rotating hub.
