Helping control and switchgear engineering transition to Industry 4.0

13 August 2018

Control and switchgear manufacturers wanting to improve productivity, in line with Industry 4.0, need high-quality data to deliver the results they are looking for. According to Rittal its VX25 large enclosure system does just that, providing data for every process along its value chain – from electrical planning through mechanical design to manufacturing.

The new VX25 conversion assistant for parts lists provides free data and an intelligent selector and configurator, simplifying the transition from the TS 8 enclosure system to the new VX25 large enclosure system.

A variety of web-based software tools are available to allow companies quickly and easierly convert to the new enclosure system.

Parts lists from the earlier TS 8 enclosure system can now be turned into VX25 parts lists with the VX25 conversion assistant. TS 8 parts lists from projects that are to be used again just need to be loaded into the conversion tool as an Excel file, using drag and drop.

If the selection is based on the model number and quantity, the VX25 parts list will be provided with a single click. It also displays any items not relevant to the VX25. The converted parts list can be downloaded or placed in the shopping cart for online ordering. TS 8 Model Numbers can also be entered individually and corresponding VX25 Model Numbers along with additional product information, will quickly be found.

The tool facilitates the configuration of free-standing enclosures and bayed suites based on the VX25 – a task that is plausibility checked. So, while accessories are being placed, the system will automatically check if the selected components can be placed at the chosen location.
