Rittal’s Toptec CR is a twin-walled outdoor enclosure system that offers all-round protection for highly sensitive electronics systems such as those needed for mobile telephony, data transmission or instrumentation.

The fully pre-configured outdoor enclosure is based around Rittal’s market leading TS 8 system frame in stainless steel with fully integrated base/plinth and roof. The completely welded enclosure body ensures top EMC values and Rittal’s TS 8 system technology also guarantees the highest level of stability and adaptability thanks to the extensive accessory range, which includes 19” mounting angles and mounting plates, lighting, heaters and a variety of gland plates for cable entry at the bottom.

Front and rear doors and side panels are made of galvanised and zinc phosphated sheet steel and, together with an outer aluminium roof, comprise a very tough and stable outdoor enclosure. As a result of using the same door cut-outs for the cooling unit and air/air heat exchanger, various climate control modules can be chosen. In addition, the twin-walled doors, reduce the influence of solar radiation (the “chimney effect”), ensure ideal conditions inside the enclosure and prevent condensation forming.

The vented rain canopy which can be unfastened from inside also helps reduce the effects of solar radiation and is designed to prevent water building up over the doors. Multiple units may easily be bayed together for larger systems as the roof / rain canopy does not extend beyond the side walls.

Front and rear doors are each equipped with a swivel handle and semi-cylinder lock with security locking mechanism, offering the highest degree of protection against unauthorised entry. Tiny gaps between the doors and side panels make it difficult to use crowbars or jemmies giving good protection against vandalism.

The Rittal Toptec CR is available in widths of 600 and 800 mm, heights of 1200 and 1600 mm, and with a depth of 600 mm.
