By revising its TS 8 enclosure system, Rittal wants to increase the assembly efficiency of its bayed enclosure. A variety of innovations to speed up the assembly of accessory components is now saving control and switchgear manufacturers a great deal of time and money. The development includes new positioning aids, one-person assembly, tool-free clip fastenings and new assembly spaces. The vertical profiles of the enclosures now have special punch patterns at 100-mm distances that permit fitted devices to be easily and quickly positioned. There is no longer any need to use a tape measure to find the right height. In addition, these new system punchings can be used for attaching fittings with M8 self-tapping screws without any need to drill. In addition, the mounting plate can now be installed even more comfortably by one person. A new type of clip ensures that the mounting plate is held securely once it has been introduced. This means the fitter now has both hands free to then fasten it with a screw. This new way of attaching the mounting plate holder means it can be positioned quickly and safely without any tools - allowing the mounting plate's position to be changed even faster. Other new features relate to the earthing: For example, the earthing bolts can now be inserted into the mounting plate from the front and then screwed down.
