A New Era in Small Enclosure Configuration

The Rittal Configuration System (RiCS) is an exciting new user-friendly design tool, for error-free accessory configurations of small and compact enclosures. 

The process is so fast and streamlined that it is estimated it can reduce the time it takes for a user to choose, configure and purchase a compact enclosure by up to 95 percent!

How to Configure a Small Enclosure with RiCs

Once an enclosure has been chosen, users are then able to browse through a pre-loaded online catalogue of accessories. RiCs contains an extensive range of more than 250 accessories in total, but the system only presents each user with components that are suitable for their cabinet.  Once chosen, each accessory can be positioned within an online 3D model of the enclosure.
