Rittal’s new innovative adaptor

November 2019 Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors

Answering to the call by Industry 4.0, Rittal’s Blue e cooling units can now integrate into existing condition monitoring and IIoT systems thanks to a special adaptor that retrofits comprehensive communications capabilities.

Higher system availability

The new adaptor can be used to set up condition monitoring for up to 10 cooling units in a master/slave arrangement. That means not only can data be recorded, but efficiency analyses can also be carried out on the cooling solution. A monitoring system that issues automatic notifications can also be set up to detect faults and limit breaches, thereby helping boost availability and prevent expensive machine downtime.

The new adapter is compatible with all Blue e units that use a Comfort Controller and both wall and roof-mounted cooling units can be made fit for Industry 4.0. This applies to both standard units and stainless steel versions. Similarly, Rittal cooling units with a NEMA 3R/4 or NEMA 4X classification – which are often used outdoors – are ideally suited for incorporation into IIoT applications. Typical examples of outdoor applications for these units include renewable energy facilities such as solar and wind power plants. As these plants are usually located in isolated areas, it is essential that they incorporate remote monitoring for panel building and switchgear manufacturing.

Straightforward commissioning

Rittal has developed the new IIoT adaptor because the older Blue e units cannot communicate directly with the IIoT interface. The whole system can be configured and commissioned via the web server integrated into the IIoT interface – quickly, conveniently and without the need for any programming.
