Rittal North America, a global manufacturer of industrial and IT enclosures, has unveiled the new RiPanel online enclosure configurator — making it easy for machine and control system design engineers to individually configure industrial enclosures. This saves time, helps to prevent errors, increases flexibility with data saving or exporting, and speeds up processes through integrated interfaces.

Machine and control system design engineers need configurators for individual industrial enclosures to support the customization of complex enclosure system application projects of original equipment manufacturers, machine builders and control manufacturers.

Using Rittal’s new powerful RiPanel online enclosure configurator, industrial enclosure systems can be more easily planned in 3D and configured individually. This solution makes it easier to customize enclosures bySource: Rittal North AmericaSource: Rittal North America adding needed accessories or machining requirements.

Machine and control system design engineers can now utilize Rittal’s powerful online configurator tool, RiPanel — the operation is simple — with appropriate accessories, plausibility checks to prevent errors, 3D visualization, libraries with predefined drilling patterns and a direct connection to EPLAN Pro Panel. In addition, engineers can now import and place individual cut-outs on the enclosure, so their customized requirements are easily implemented. RiPanel also provides maximum transparency and consistency throughout the entire engineering and manufacturing processes.

Specific benefits of RiPanel include:

  • Saves time due to simple configuration process
  • No more errors when selecting accessories or machining options
  • Ability to export the configuration’s technical data as CAD and assembly instructions
  • Faster processes through integrated interfaces to EPLAN and Rittal software
