Rittal Cooling Panels

Rittal have a large range of cooling products that will address the problem of overheating panels.




Rittal’s TopTherm fan-and-filter units are an energy efficient means of cooling enclosures but require a clean and cool environment to operate effectively. Air-to-air heat exchangers have separate internal and external air paths, preventing dirt and dust from entering the panel, but still require a cool ambient air to deliver the required cooling.

Rittal’s cooling units also have separate air circuits but are capable of cooling the air inside an enclosure to a temperature lower than that of the ambient as well as maintaining a clean internal environment. In the case of thermoelectric coolers, the Peltier effect is used to deliver modest amounts of cooling, typically to small panels, offering a lightweight and compact solution. Units from the Rittal TopTherm Blue e range incorporate a refriger-ant circuit and so have larger nominal cooling capacities, up to 4 kW.

Rittal’s air-to-water heat exchangers can maintain the air inside a panel at a temperature lower than that of the surrounding air and have an additional benefit of allowing heat to be dissipated remotely. Water is the cooling medium used to transport thermal energy to an alternative location, where it may be discharged without increasing the temperature in an already warm environment. To complete the chilled water system a Rittal chiller can be used to return the water to its’ original condition before recirculating to the heat exchanger.

Rittal Flex-Block Product Information

Rittals popular flex-block plinth until now, has been available as a total packaged solution, ordering as a single part number.  Following feedback from their customers, this package is about to change to provide even further benefits.

To eliminate unwanted trim panel when baying enclosures together, you can now purchase the Flex-Block plinth and its components, corner blocks, trim side, front and rear panels seperately thus solving the current issue of waste.

Not only is this a more cost effective solution but other benefits include less part numbers to cover the enclosure range and spare parts such as damaged trims can be ordered quickly and easily.

Until Rittal have exhausted its stock, the former packaging will still be available but it is currently being phased out.

If you have any questions or require a copy of the conversion table for the packaged units, please do not hesitate to contact us.
