Rittal’s new Flex-Block base/plinth system is now available from stock to suit Rittal floor-standing enclosuresTS 8, SE 8 and CM, along with floor-standing human interface products TP and PC.
The Flex-Block plinth is made up of four fibreglass-reinforced corner pieces that fix directly to each corner of the enclosure, either to the frame or the base tray. These blocks support the whole weight of the enclosure, providing direct access to the whole of the underside and allowing for cable management or pallet trucks for simple transportation. With provisions for threaded inserts, the corner pieces allow for castors or adjustable levelling feet to be installed easily without tools.
With all the corner pieces in place it is possible to clip-fit, or mechanically fix, accessories such as punched section for the use of Rittal standard accessories such as cable management, punched section, cable restraints, etc., providing easy cable access when working at low level.
All plinths are supplied with trim panels made from sheet steel and painted in RAL 9005. These can be clip-fitted without the use of tools or fixings, which have been tested to withstand the rigours of transport and vibrations. For additional security there is also the option to screw-fix the trims along with points for earthing the trims.
With the TS 8 bayable range of enclosures in mind it is also possible to bay the plinths together complementing the install. This is also very simple, using the baying clip supplied as an accessory.
