Magic of Modular

S & H Systems, based in Cannock, Staffordshire are a panel builder and supplier of automation solutions for a variety of industries from general manufacturing through to specialist areas such as water treatment, building services contractors, light and heavy engineering and power generation.

Established for over 20 years, S & H Systems have the in-house capability to design, manufacture, install and commission all aspects of electrical/pneumatic distribution, control and automation equipment. During 2008 the company has completed a diverse range of projects across a broad range of countries which has extended as far as Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Uganda.

Awarded a project to provide a complete electrical design package including Motor Control Centre (MCC),
PLC and HMI software for a recycling plant power generation boiler/turbine project based in Scotland, S & H Systems began the search for a supplier of an MCC that would be suitable for this type of assignment.

For this particular contract the availability of the equipment was paramount as the project was on a tight
deadline. S & H Systems also have a highly regarded reputation for only supplying the highest of quality component construction which exceeds client expectations, which was also a major consideration. Rittal were chosen as the preferred supplier as they were easily able to meet these demands. Ri4Power was
delivered in kit form from stock, and assembled quickly and easily at the premises of S & H Systems.

Paul Bunn, Managing Director at S&H Systems commented, “We chose Ri4Power, based on availability, value for money and Rittal’s reputation for providing high quality products. The electrical rating of the busbar system and the physical capacity available for each of the components was more than sufficient for this particular project. We have had previous experience with the earlier range of Rittal TS based MCC enclosures and were aware that Ri4Power was technologically more advanced than the previous system
and available virtually ‘off-the-shelf which was a major attraction.”

“It allows plenty of manoeuvrability for onsite contractors”

Rittal’s MCC, Ri4Power Form 2-4, offers a flexible modular MCC for low voltage applications in motor control or energy distribution, for loads up to 1600 A. ASTA certified and type-tested in accordance with IEC 60439 Part 1, the MCC guarantees the highest of safety standards. With generously sized 400mm wide chambers, Ri4Power allows plenty of manoeuvrability for onsite contractors. Of modular construction, Ri4Power is also
easily extendable and with door heights available from 150mm to 2000mm offers complete flexibility to tailor to the individual application.

Paul Bunn commented on Ri4Power, “The system is very flexible in its configuration and would have been easy to re-configure if a design change had occurred. The finished product was very aesthetic and professional with a high quality paint finish which was consistent across the different items of steelwork. The internal finish of the steelwork was also extremely good. Assembly was easy to conduct once we had worked out the fundamentals and I would recommend using a powered screw driver due to the superiority of the fixings required for the internal brackets and plates. Ri4Power is a high quality product which enabled us to provide a product which met our client’s highest expectations.”

Darryl Wells-Pope, Rittal Product Manager for Power Distribution added, “We were delighted to be awarded this contract as it reflects our philosophy of supplying readily available high quality products which are easy for customers to assemble. It was also an added bonus that the MCC was destined for a recycling plant
as it’s good to know our products may be helping to sustain the environment.”
