Virtual assistant simplifies manual mounting

Software-based assistance systems provide support when assembling and installing wiring connections. All the necessary data for mounting control cabinet modules, such as terminal strips, is provided as required. Manual mounting activities are also supported by smart solutions.

Wiring and handling made easy

Eplan Smart Wiring guides the worker through the wiring process step by step. They have an overview of everything, even without a circuit diagram. The same is true for scenarios where multiple control cabinets are wired in parallel or different colleagues work on the same project. The required wires are assembled at the Rittal Wire Terminal. Handling systems such as the Rittal assembly frame and the Smart Lifter provide support for manual activities.

Your advantages for greater efficiency:

  • Manufacturing and installation processes are much simpler

  • Easy monitoring and documentation

  • Convenient solutions make it easier to perform manual mounting activities

Digital data-enabled assistance systems are the key to secure and efficient assembly processes.
