Rittal Comfort Panel

Building on the Rittal Command Panel operator control/keyboard housing, Rittal is ramping up production of its new Comfort Panel line. The Rittal Comfort Panel is said to be engineered to accommodate the latest generation of HMI operator panels with a slim-line design to match the Rittal support arm systems. Comfort Panel is ergonomically designed and user-friendly with many options, including integrated handle sets, document holders, and mouse pad support. Standard sizes and custom configurations are available.

Rittal Comfort Panel is engineered to accommodate the latest generation of HMI operator panels with a slim-line design to match the Rittal support arm systems. Courtesy: RittalIt has lightweight, aluminum construction with a soft profile to minimize risk of injury. Cooling fins can be added to quickly dissipate heat from electronic components, and the units can be equipped with additional cooling elements. Comfort Panel units can be configured to meet any size operator panel and provide IP 65/ NEMA 12 protection ratings.

The Comfort Panel adds installation flexibility, Rittal said, because it is available with one-piece, screwed or hinged front and rear panels. Optional keyboard housing is vertically hinged via a frame connection and can be retrofit to previous models. Hinges are on the outside so the front can be readily removed for service. Design options are available for custom application. It is available with four support arm systems.

Nine standard sizes are available for order, with standard width of 520 mm with three height and depth options, with the goal of providing an off-the-shelf solution for most customer applications. When custom configuration is necessary, the eight-digit configuration code may be used.
