Free-standing enclosures are used in many areas of industry and in buildings services management. Typical fields of application are in compact machinery and equipment and their power distribution and automation components, which can be accommodated in a single enclosure. For such cases, Rittal has expanded its TS 8 system platform by adding the new system enclosure SE8. Unlike baying suites with frames and removable side panels, the body of the SE 8 - consisting of two side panels and a roof - is made from one piece of sheet steel. The rear panel of the enclosure is screwed on for easy access. Cable entry solutions can be employed on the integrated base frame, as in the TS 8 bayed system. The doors and the base/plinth of the SE 8 have also been taken over from the TS 8 program.
