Rittal North America LLC has introduced the SE 8 line of standalone enclosures. The new SE 8 combines the interior space efficiency of modular designs with a price point that competes with unibody enclosures.

SE 8 freestanding enclosures are available in single- or double-door designs. The enclosures utilize 14-gauge doors, and 16-gauge panels and roof. All materials are available in carbon or stainless steel. The single-door carbon-steel version is UL Type 12 and 3R, with a Type 4 option available. The single-door stainless steel version is also UL Type 12, 3R, with a Type 4X option.

The roll-form frame construction of the SE 8 provides strength and durability and 30% more useable internal space than comparable unibody designs. Unlike unibody enclosures, the SE 8 features multiple interchangeable accessories, including all TS 8 interior system accessories, plus cable entry options, swing frames, chassis, rails and partial panels, lighting and grounding systems, plinth, cable base and flex block and more. The popular Rittal reversible door and lock system is standard.

SE 8 workstations for PC components in industrial environments provide ergonomic styling and protection for computer configurations — from monitor to printer. The design is highly stable as a standalone enclosure, with carbon-steel or stainless construction. A rear door provides easy service access, and triple surface treatment guards against corrosion.

Access protection includes a glazed door with robust safety glass, a lockable keyboard drawer and solid, one-piece sides and roof. Identical pitch patterns in width and depth and two mounting levels create unlimited options for interior customization.

PE conductor connection points and grounding bolts are standard, with extensive optional accessories that include grounding straps, PE busbars, and grounding rails.
