Rittal Launch VX25 Large Enclosure System

After five years of development work, Rittal has unveiled the successor to their best selling TS8 large system enclosures - the new VX25 range.

It is the first enclosure system that has been fully developed to meet the requirements for increased productivity in control and switchgear manufacturing and Industry 4.0 value chains. With the “System Perfection.” slogan, Rittal is promising a major innovative leap, which has been made possible by depth of experience and intensive customer dialogue.

The Rittal VX25 offers the highest possible quality and consistency of data, with reduced complexity giving time savings and safer assembly. More than 25 registered property rights demonstrate the high level of innovation involved.

Making the Best Even Better...

Can the best be made even better? This is the question that Rittal asked as it began developing a new enclosure system. “The market needs an enclosure that cuts engineering and assembly times and reduces complexity,” said Dr Thomas Steffen, Managing Director Research and Development at Rittal.

Dr Steffen went on to say that “the new Rittal large enclosure has now become 100 percent Industry 4.0-capable. With the combination of a real enclosure and its digital twin, the new development will meet future digitisation needs – from online configuration and engineering to assembly, as well as automation, logistics and maintenance.”

Study: Observe, Listen and Learn

Intensive dialogue with Rittal customers was crucial in developing the VX25 large enclosure system. During a large-scale, scientifically based usability study, researchers documented the everyday working life of control and switchgear manufacturers, covering small, medium-sized and large companies in Germany, USA and China. “This user analysis was an eye-opener. In some cases, we spotted problems that the customers themselves hadn’t yet identified,” said Dr Steffen.

As a result, 150 specific requirements for a new enclosure emerged, giving developers and product managers a robust guide for the actual development work. This was complemented by the input of the customer advisory council during the later development phase.

The Result: Pure Customer benefits

The development culminated in the new VX25 large enclosure system. “No enclosure system has ever been developed so consistently and systematically to ensure maximum customer benefit. The VX25 matches the way the control and switchgear manufacturer thinks and works – both in functions and processes", added Dr Steffen.

Patents: A High Degree of Innovation

The heart of the VX25 is the newly developed frame section. It determines the installation space, the efficiency in engineering and assembly, the expansion options, and the stability, reliability and flexibility in the customer’s workshop. The new large enclosure system maintains all the important and established product features of the existing TS8 system and expands them with several new functions and customer benefits.

Production: Maximum Quality

For Rittal, 'System Perfection' also involves high-tech manufacturing. It has invested in new state-of-the-art production facilities to manufacture the new frame section of the VX25. New and fully automatic profiling systems and volume production lines with a total of 31 welding and handling robots give maximum quality, precision and stability. The result is the frame section of the VX25 has a consistent 25-mm pitch pattern which is more stable than its TS 8 predecessor, although the weight is the same.

What Are They Saying About the New VX25?

'The new enclosure's strong point is its components – they greatly improve productivity for switchgear manufacturers... What impressed me is that you only need two tools to complete the enclosure.'

Heinz-Josef Schmitz - Blumenbecker Group

'The new enclosure is better than its predecessor, the TS8. It's easier to assemble, especially in combination with the plinth.'

Thomas Frink - KSV Koblenzer Steuerungs und Verteilungsbau GmbH

'The new enclosure's greatest strength is its accessories – they are fewer in number of parts, but richer in functionality. The simplicity of the enclosure's components is a huge advantage when it comes to assembly.'

Holger Mrzyglodzik - Schubs Steuerungstechnik GmbH
