Rittal Introduces Vented Outdoor UL 3R Type Rated Enclosure - Accommodates for Easy In-Field Maintenance

Schaumburg, IL, March 01, 2024 – Rittal North America, a global manufacturer of industrial and IT enclosures, introduces the Wall Mount Vented (WMV) outdoor UL 3R Type Rated enclosure. This new enclosure accommodates easy in-field maintenance and features core advantages, including a durable design, integrated cooling, easy access for routine maintenance, optimum corrosion protection, and included fans and filters.

Outdoor environments can have severe effects on the electrical controls inside of enclosures. Sensitive electronics are extremely susceptible to overheating, moisture, dust, and debris, and without the proper protection and access for maintenance their operating life can be shortened. This can result in degraded equipment performance or downtime. 

As an off-the-shelf solution with included fans and filters for integrated cooling, the WMV helps optimize electronic component efficiency and reduce failures. The WMV provides optimum corrosion protection thanks to a 3-phase surface finish and silicone gasket, while the housing and door are dipcoat primed and powder-coated RAL 9003 white as standard, and the included mounting panel is zinc-plated. Routine maintenance with filter removal or replacement is easily accomplished without opening the door. 

The WMV comes standard with the following features: 

  • UL Type 3R protection rated for outdoor applications 
  • Available in carbon steel 
  • Included zinc-plated mounting panels 
  • All-around silicone replaceable seal to keep contaminates out 
  • Dipcoat primed, powder-coated RAL 9003 white as standard 
  • Housing with vented roof module minimizes footprint  
  • Integrated cooling with fans and filters included 
  • Door with fitted seal and vented hood 
  • Top-mounted 115V fans for easy access 
  • Washable filter kits for easy maintenance
  • Adjustable thermostat operates fan only when needed 
  • Single door enclosure with roof module and door hood 
  • Pre-drilled mounting holes 
  • 1/4 turn lock provides easy component configuration options and access 
  • 6 enclosure sizes available to house 3-100 HP drives
