MISSISSAUGA — Rittal, a global manufacturer of industrial and IT enclosures, introduces the new VX SE free-standing enclosure system that purports to offer greater flexibility. For applications where other compact enclosures are too small, and the TS 8 baying enclosures are too large – the VX SE is an ideal midway alternative for applications where baying is not required. Additionally, the VX SE size range includes a 300 mm deep version that is suitable for applications where space is limited.

The VX SE purports to offer quicker time-to-delivery and faster, streamlined assembly, enhanced reliability, and compatibility with other Rittal systems. With supposed advantages such as high protection categories, a wide range of sizes from 300 mm depth to 1,800 mm width, the VX SE is a stand-alone solution to help panel builders, machine builders, systems integrators and end users increase their productivity.

“We see in the market that there are applications where baying is not required, so customers will benefit from the versatility of the new VX SE free-standing enclosure system that is compatible with our TS 8 baying system”, states Troy Miesse, Industrial Automation Product Manager at Rittal. “That means that panel builders who transition to the VX SE do not have to make major adjustments in terms of engineering, assembly or component installation – everything stays the same. Also, it is possible to combine VX SE with any TS 8 accessories, so panel builders can simply make use of existing components from the baying product portfolio.”

The VX SE is ideal for applications which can be accommodated with a single enclosure. For example, with its torsional rigidity, the VX SE is suited to cope with dynamic loads and stresses when used with compact machinery and equipment and their power distribution and automation components.
