Rittal Initiates New System for Quick Delivery of Modular Industrial Enclosures and Accessories


SPRINGFIELD, OHIO, July 27, 2006 − To efficiently and cost effectively address the varied needs of manufacturing environments, Rittal Corp. has initiated Rittal XPress, a new system for the quick delivery of modular industrial enclosures and accessories. Unique and flexible, Rittal XPress enables customers to match their specifications to various configurations of Rittal's TS8 enclosures, along with a variety of accessories. The Rittal XPress system is available in two programs - 1-Day for customer-configured cabinets and 5-Day for Rittal-installed and ready-to-use enclosures.

With the Rittal XPress 1-Day Program, customers choose the cabinet that fits their requirements and then select mounting panels, grounding bars, lights, handles, hardware or other accessories. Ready-to-configure enclosures and accessories are then shipped within 24 hours.

The Rittal XPress 5-Day Program allows customers to choose their cabinet and then select the appropriate accessories. Rittal installs the selected accessories in their standard enclosure locations and then ships the ready-to-use units within five days.
The TS8 options for the Rittal XPress system include the standard freestanding and flange mount disconnect freestanding designs, available in various sizes. Among the enclosure/accessory features available through the Rittal XPress system are:

o Patented 16-fold frame that provides added strength and reliability
o Mounting panel that holds weight loads up to 1,500 lbs.
o 25 mm hole pattern that allows height, width and depth mounting of components and accessories for maximum space utilization
o Cable entry plates on bottom for easy wiring access
