Ri4Power, a modular power management system

, that uses the flexibility of Rittal’s TS8 modular enclosure platform to create compartment-based load isolation from low-voltage switchgear components.

Because of the TS8-based modular design, assembly is fast and easy (one-man assembly is possible). Compartments can be configured to almost any size to accommodate motor starters, drives and other controls while incorporating an optional integrated busbar system (up to 1,600 A) that is isolated and offers high short-circuit current resistance.

Configurations include high-current power distributor, low-voltage system, and distribution enclosure. Applications for the high-current distributor include main current distribution systems, current rectification applications, industrial wind energy, industrial distribution systems, and machine construction. Applications for the low-voltage systems include process industry, water supply/disposal, building distribution systems, chemical industry, machine construction, and motor control. Applications for the distribution enclosure include building, industrial, and sub-distribution systems.

The Ri4Power design has IEC-type testing in place and UL 508, 845 and 891 approvals pending. Components are physically separated into different compartments, so risk of personal injury from touching active terminals is reduced, eliminating a major concern when the entire switchgear installation cannot be shut down for routine maintenance or repairs. The Ri4Power concept provides greater efficiency and safety compared to conventional power management strategies.
