Rittal has responded to customer requests by updating their online subrack configurator. No longer limited to only those units shown in the catalogue, the subrack configurator now includes all the subracks possible from the parts in the product range. Almost 1,000 different combinations are available for merging into a printable bill of materials which can be submitted directly for a quotation.
In addition to the expansion in subracks, more of the accessories have also been included. For example, it is possible to configure a complete system with mounting for horizontal boards in a minimal height subrack, the perfect solution where only two or three 6U boards are required to fit in a limited space.
The configurator also allows the inclusion of different mounting options for either rackmount or desktop, optional covers to direct airflow or for protection, with many other variations. It is available free of charge online and even includes a section on the Vario-Module instrument case, which is a smart desk-top unit and utilises most of the accessories from the Ripac subrack range.
For a view of all of the available parts in the range, the ‘electronics’ CD is also available.
