Rittal Can Grow Your Colocation Business, Now and In The Future.

The unique challenges in colocation are answered with Rittal’s broad suite of solutions, positioned to help data center managers improve their operational efficiency. As data center managers weigh the cost of scaling their facilities and “future-proofing” their infrastructure, modular enclosures become integral to the calculation.

For space efficiency, Rittal’s modular enclosures are the building blocks. In a multi-tenant data center, rapid scaling to meet client specifications is simplified using available configured racks with most common accessories pre-installed. Rittal’s modular enclosures are the building blocks to meet the evolving requirements of customers and growth challenges 5-10 years into the future.

Colocation Infrastructure Handbook

Product complexity creates a greater cost for colocation facilities. By standardizing Rittal’s modular enclosures as part of their infrastructure offering, colocation managers can deliver service consistency, control costs and lower the learning curve for facility maintenance operators. Rittal can work with the colocation center to develop specific product offerings for clients’ unique needs. Owners can create their own “standard colocation package” of enclosures, and cable, power and airflow/thermal management solutions to add value.

Ready for rapid build-out. Scaleable. Ship-loadable. Rittal partners with the colocation center to maximize profitable potenial with reliable solutions that work for today, and expand for the future.

Rittal supports colocation growth with:

  • TS IT modular enclosures
  • In-row cooling technology
  • Monitoring and security solutions
  • UPS power solutions

Data Center & Network Enclosures Deliver Scalability

The TS IT delivers dimensional flexibility and supports the integration of a variety of IT solutions to support numerous network configurations.

  • Design flexibility allows integration of edge solutions
  • Reduced complexity saves time from the planning stage onward
  • Snap-in technology allows for fast, tool-free assembly of both rack and accessory components
  • Quick fastenings, integrated locks and additional internal latching speed the installation of side panels

How TS IT Makes IT Simple

The TS IT can support a total load of 3,300 lbs. without any additional screw joints, a capability made possible by our newly developed depth stays that transmit the load to the enclosure’s frame. The quick-release fasteners with snap-in technology simplify initial assembly, any subsequent modifications, and installation of accessory components.

  • High load carrying capacity—up to 3,300 lbs
  • Intelligent cable management system
  • Extensive range of accessories

The TS IT supports a wide range of accessory options that make it easy to customize to the needs of your specific application.

Rittal Cooling Solutions

Rapidly scaled, high-density installations often have unique airflow challenges; corners or sections which may be difficult to cool. Rittal flexible products can target cooling precisely where needed, calculating the thermal requirements for a specific, given area.


The closed-loop LCP Rack CW units give you total control over the air path. Using a compact 12-inch-wide footprint, this next-generation system may even double your cooling capacity without occupying additional floor space. The high-efficiency fans are located at the front of the LCP – on the cool side away from the highest level of heat – to extend fan life.

LCP Inline CW

In a bayed enclosure suite, LCP Inline CW creates a cold curtain down a row, maximizing efficient cooling. Choose from two configuration options: flush, in which moving air flows into the cold aisle, and protruding, where cold air flows from both sides laterally across the face of nearby enclosures. A higher water inlet temperature increases the proportion of free cooling, reducing operating costs.

Computer Multi Control (CMC) III

As a data center’s size grows, so can the complexity of the equipment needed to monitor environmental conditions and control access. Rittal’s CMC III system solves this problem by using a CAN bus to support serial connection of multiple monitoring sensors to a central point.

The system collects numerous essential statistics, making them available for further processing by the network management system and allowing IT managers to monitor all data center environmental conditions from a centralized position. However, the CMC III also acts independently, automatically initiating countermeasures and triggering alarms or notifying designated personnel, for example.

CMC III systems can handle large-scale IT applications; a compact version is also available for use in smaller systems and single-enclosure applications. CMC III systems can be integrated into virtually all control centers via the OPC (Object Linking and Embedding for Process Control) protocol to make the data collected available at higher management levels.
