Outdoor enclosure system has a high standard of quality and technology

So that highly sensitive electronics systems, such as those needed for mobile telephony, data transmission or instrumentation, can survive the elements when used outdoors, all-round protection by robust and climate-controlled enclosure technology is needed.

Also, the highest levels of corrosion protection, and stability and flexibility are a must.

Rittal has thus developed the Toptec CR, a new twin-walled enclosure system that it claims meets all these requirements. It uses an intelligent mix of materials - stainless steel, galvanised and zinc-phosphated sheet steel, and aluminium.

The twin-walled, fully pre-configured outdoor enclosure consists of a basic stainless steel frame with TS 8 vertical sections, roof and integrated base/plinth group. The completely welded enclosure body ensures high EMC values. The TS 8 system technology also guarantees high levels of stability and extendibility thanks to the extensive Rittal accessory range. Front and rear doors and side panels are made of galvanised and zinc-phosphated sheet steel. Together with an outer aluminium roof, this comprises a very tough and stable outdoor enclosure.

Standardised climate control systems are integrated. In addition, twin-walled doors, which reduce the influence of solar radiation (chimney effect), ensure ideal conditions inside the enclosure and prevent condensation forming. The vented 'rain canopy' roof structure guarantees optimum air circulation, and protects against rain. The enclosures can also be arranged one after the other.

The front and rear doors are each equipped with a swivel handle and security locking mechanism. The tiny door gaps make it difficult to use crowbars or jemmies, protecting against vandalism.

The Rittal Toptec CR is available in widths of 600 and 800 mm, heights of 1200 and 1600 mm, and with a depth of 600 mm.
