Rittal is one of the world’s leading suppliers of enclosures and case systems for technology packaging. Today most European and global networks predominantly run on Rittal solutions.

We believe our strength lies in the individual guidance we give our customers. We provide advice from the very beginning: we familiarise ourselves with your situation and work with you to produce a completely individualised concept for your railway needs.

Every successful project serves as a good reference. Rittal have proven themselves in the field of tunnel technology by contributing significantly to implementing successful projects, such as the Mt Blanc tunnel and the Gotthard tunnel. Rittal have also been actively involved in the transrapid train, helping to provide the safest, most environmentally friendly mode of transport ever built.

Following months of research, development and testing, Rittal offer a range of enclosures which all comply with the LUL standard 2-01001-002:A1 fire safety of materials. Tested at qualified laboratories, all Rittal systems carry certification to conform to relevant standards. Every Rittal product carries a warranty against material defects and has a minimum five-year availability.

AE compact enclosure for railways

The wall-mounted compact enclosure AE range is ideal for railways as it offers corrosion resistance and high protection. The IP69K rating guarantees a watertight enclosure even under adverse conditions. It also offers a high resistance to temperature fluctuations, exhaust vapours and humidity. The lock, hinges and mounting plate are vibration resistant, and perfect for wall and pole mounting.

TS 8 system platform

TS 8 floor-standing enclosures have a completely symmetrical frame allowing the enclosures to be easily bayed. The TS 8 is a welded frame construction that provides optimum stability and maximum space-utilisation. Each enclosure is a specialist for
individual railway tasks.

Compact medium (CM) enclosure

Rittal’s CM enclosure combines the case benefits of the AE with the installation diversity of the TS 8 range. The CM is compatible with TS 8 mounting components and Rittal system accessories.

E-BOX EB and IP66 KL terminal boxes for railway safety

The E-Box E is the perfect enclosure range for the smallest of railway control tasks. These sheet steel terminal boxes are supplied with mounting plates; 180° hinge and double-bit lock system to meet our high standards.

Also made from sheet steel, IP66 KL terminal boxes are supplied without gland plate. They comply with NEMA 4 and protection categories IP66 to EN 60 529/10.91 to ensure reliability and railway safety.

ES free-standing enclosures for railways

ES free-standing enclosures have firmly linked side panels that comply with NEMA 12. They are compact for electronics, ideal for machine control, generously proportioned for climate control, flexible and cost-effective. ES free-standing enclosures are therefore ideal for railway operations.

TS 8 PC for moisture protection for PCs

The TS 8 PC enclosure provides protection from moisture, dirt and high temperatures for standard PCs. The glazed door has a supporting frame made from sheet steel and single-pane safety glass. Available with large monitor area and keyboard drawer, a shortened monitor door and a folding support panel or a desk section instead of the drawer.
