he new Rittal VX25 large enclosure system supports the control and

switchgear engineering industry on the path toward Industry 4.0. The new system combines a physical

enclosure with its digital twin, ensuring it will meet all future digital needs – from online configuration and engineering to assembly, automation and tracking. The VX25 ensures 3D data is available in

consistent maximum quality. The digital element supports control and switchgear manufacturers across every process along their value chain. This means electrical planning, mechanical design, purchasing, cost calculation and manufacturing, as well as every other area of switchgear construction, can always access complete, high-quality data. That capability then opens up new ways for end-users to digitise their processes in accordance with Industry 4.0.

MAXIMUM DATA QUALITY Efficient designing and planning is supported through the easy download of detailed, validated 3D CAD data (Rittal website or EPLAN data portal), the flexible data transmission in all common CAD systems (a total of 70 formats), the mechatronic engineering with CAE/CAD, the generation of enclosure layouts with EPLAN Pro Panel, as well as data classification according to eClass and ETIM.

ERROR-FREE CONFIGURATION The web-based Rittal Configuration System (RiCS) enables simple and error- free configuration of the VX25 and the desired installation components – even without any knowledge of CAD. The required planning security is ensured

by integrated plausibility checks that provide direct feedback, ensuring that the


Rittal’s Hygienic Design System enclosures combine the features of their Hygienic Design Compact enclosures with a modular, bayable configuration. They deliver a

solution has a high level of reliability. Rittal has also simplified the ordering processes by linking it to the online shop, as well as with web-based conversion tools to support a changeover from the TS 8 to the VX25 large enclosure system.

EASY TRACKING Validated configuration and engineering results then provide the basis for the automatic controlling of machines at plant construction production facilities. The VX25 panels are equipped with a QR code to optimise the value creation processes within control and switchgear engineering. Production control and traceability is conceivable in future within control and switchgear engineering. Using the QR code, it will be possible to align the components of the enclosure to a specific order or customer project. This will allow the components to be tracked through the complete workflow, to be assigned to the correct editing programs and for the processing times to be recorded.


flexible and hygienic solution that protects installed electrical and electronic equipment, even in washdown areas. The addition of standard accessories from Rittal’s TS

8 range, plus the flexibility afforded by baying, as well as the ability to swap the door handles, gives users a solution that can be tailored to suit even complex control systems in production clean rooms. The Hygienic Design System enclosure eliminates dead space and dirt traps, which reduces the risk of both direct and indirect cross-contamination. Features that help improve hygiene levels include:

hinge and lock components located inside the seal face; internally secured sloped roof and side panels; blue-dyed silicone seals; special protruding lock inserts; and, hygienically designed accessories, including glands, levelling feet and viewing window. The lack of dead space and dirt traps makes cleaning

easier, the more so because the roof is angled at 30 degrees and all gaps are at least finger-sized. The enclosure has an ingress protection category of IP 59K.

As such, it shields installed equipment from dust, dirt, and powerful, high-temperature, water jets, during production and cleaning, even in washdown areas. As a result, the Hygienic Design System enclosure can have major business benefits. By making cleaning easier, and better protecting electrical and electronic components it reduces both scheduled, and unplanned, downtime. This means it can increase uptime and improve productivity while contributing to creating a hygienic production environment
