Increased Efficiency. Reduced Cost with Rittal TS 8 – HoST Success Story

Rittal has continuously evolved into the world’s leading system provider since 1961. Within a few years of their inception, Rittal enclosures had established a global standard. They have maintained to this day, offering innovative and comprehensive solutions to various industries.


Our customer in the marine industries frequently outsource their design installation and panel integration to third-party vendors to maintain a lean workforce. They will look for single contact points, such as system integrators, who installs PLC to the enclosure with testing and commissioning functions. Rittal provides HoST with top-of-the-line enclosures. It brings up the portfolio of HoST to the next level.

The TS 8 freestanding enclosure with baying systems and mounting plate is one of the most sought-after products. It dominates the market with an IP 55 rating (NEMA 12) and construction of a stainless steel 1.4404 (AISI 316L).

The Solution:

HoST was an excellent project partner, providing PLC hardware, panel and integration services, as well as final documentation and customer testing. By selecting HoST for this project, the customer obtains the peace of mind necessary to concentrate on other aspects of the endeavour.

HoST will manage the logistical challenges of coordinating multiple suppliers with varying lead times. Because the end user’s design has not been finalised, the challenge of building the customised enclosure will be extremely tough with an extended lead time. Without HoST’s involvement, managing the project’s schedule and timeline will be difficult.

Why Choose Rittal? The Rittal TS8 is the premier modular enclosure available in the world today. Engineered with the challenges of real-world applications in mind, the TS8 can protect critical equipment in even the most demanding environments.

Combined with the included, zinc plated mounting panel, the TS8 provides 15% more interior mounting space than unibody, NEMA-style enclosures. Due to its modular design, the TS8 is easily adaptable to your unique requirements. Offered in powder-coated carbon and 304 or 316L stainless steel, the TS8 delivers the protection and durability you need while a wide variety of standard accessories ensures your ability to craft your ideal enclosure solution.
