The maritime industry must be prepared to face rough seas. On-board and quayside installations must take stormy waters in their stride. Salt, gales, strong vibrations and shocks, as well as temperature variations are further challenges for maritime infrastructure. Rittal solutions – all bases covered Rittal offers enclosure systems in a range of sizes, designs and surface coatings to securely accommodate controllers and switchgear, including targeted climate control solutions, even in heavy seas and under extreme temperature and humidity conditions.
The international approvals and certifications required for the maritime sector – including Det Norske Veritas, Germanischer Lloyd, Lloyd’s Register and the American Bureau of Shipping – provide confirmation that systems can withstand these specific conditions. Rittal products and solutions are used in applications such as passenger administration, entertainment and communication. They also ensure a reliable supply of power to vessels’ operating equipment – including motor starters, lighting, ballast water management, fuel systems and waste systems – and can be found in navigation, position-finding and automation systems, in the control desks located in engine control rooms, and in evaluation and energy monitoring devices.
Rittal enclosure solutions are available in sheet steel, aluminium zinc, plastic and stainless steel. Super-tough surface coatings permanently protect the sensitive electronics to keep them working reliably at all times. Rittal solutions for this industry provide the ideal basis for this.
