Welcome to the AX family

AX. System perfection.

After more than 30 years, Rittal is revolutionising the field of plastic enclosures and complementing its AX series of sheet steel and stainless steel enclosures. With the plastic enclosure AX, Rittal has now combined the benefits of a sophisticated system technology with those of an extremely robust material to produce a unique enclosure series.

The new plastic enclosure AX stands for maximum simplification, speed and configuration freedom, while at the same time meeting the highest demands in terms of safety and robustness. Whether in the workshop or outdoors exposed to the elements – the plastic enclosure AX weathers all extremes.
The AX enclosure series defines the standards for Industry 4.0-compliant enclosure manufacture.

Applications

fri121659600_Anwendung_ax_maritime

Maritime industry

Extreme ambient conditions place particular demands on the material and surface properties of an enclosure. The plastic enclosure AX offers corrosion protection and is resistant to UV radiation, salt and salty air.
Anwendung_ax_abwassermanagement

Wastewater management

Especially in this field, enclosures are exposed to various damaging influences, for example aggressive vapours which can attack the material. The plastic enclosure offers optimum protection – in the same way as against wind, weather and UV radiation.
Anwendung_ax_Bahntechnik

Railway technology

Thanks to its robust material and stable construction, the plastic enclosure AX withstands aggressive environments, dampness and all arising pressure/suction forces.
Anwendung_ax_flughaefen

Airports

The plastic enclosure AX withstands UV radiation, rain, snow and storm, and offers protection against flying debris such as tyre wear particles.

Perforex BC

Engineering

Engineering is the starting point for every panel building and switchgear engineering project. With the help of software tools developed by Rittal and Eplan, a virtual prototype of an enclosure is created. It contains all the information relevant for the production process, enabling maximum efficiency at every point in the workflow. In this way, seamless data allows you to create and benefit from automated production processes.

System 

Enclosures, power distribution, climate control. Enclosures do not exist in isolation, but are part of a bigger, multi-faceted system. The Rittal modular system offers coordinated solutions covering every requirement – fast, flexible, and worldwide. Capitalise on unique system solutions with clear benefits for users.

Automation

Inside the enclosure workshop, workflows can also benefit from digitalisation and extensive automation. The machines and tools from Rittal Automation Systems support every aspect of machining and component mounting in panel building, from individual machining of enclosure panels through to fully automated wire assembly. Act now and create the basis for automated processes in your workshop.

We are there for you.
