With fast assembly and ingenious design RiLine60 is ideally suited for power switchgear systems and automation control panels.

To assist in reducing design and installation time Rittal’s RPE design software has been developed for the design and creation a parts list for a distribution system. The RPE software has been designed to integrate RiLine60 into standard Rittal enclosures: TS 8, SE 8, AE, CM and KS.

Extensive testing has provided heat loss data for the following manufacturers: ABB; GE; Hager; Mitsubishi; Moeller; Schneider; Siemens and Terasaki.            

On selection of the type of enclosure, number and manufacturer of the devices, the RPE software will generate a CAD drawing of the system and calculate the heat loss within the panel. Another key feature of the software is the ability to produce a design and routine verification document that complies with the IEC 61439-2 standard.  

All the features of the RiLine60 and RPE design software will enable the design engineer to save time and offer a safe and reliable power distribution system.
