A wide range of subracks are available from enclosure specialist, Rittal, all branded under the Ripac banner. The devices provide users with a multiple choice of options for housing several printed circuit boards or plug-in modules in a 19” rack environment.
Ranging from the Ripac EASY with simple, non-EMC construction and ultra-quick assembly to the Ripac Vario EMC for more sophisticated applications, the whole range shares common accessories, such as guide rails and divider kits for use where different sized PCBs are to be accommodated.
Other parts of the range provide support for heavy loads (Ripac Solid), or are designed for simple mounting on DIN rails for a few boards (Ripac Compact). The backbone of the range, Ripac Vario, may be upgraded to an EMC solution following assembly if it is found necessary.
In addition to catalogues and an internet based configurator, Rittal offer personal assistance with subrack and case design and backplane selection, through their team of 20 area managers and market specialists.
