Equipped for all applications
Maximum flexibility and minimum space requirements are the key aspects of powerful control cabinets in industrial environments. Control cabinet manufacturers have to respond to the efficiency-oriented requirements of their customers with ever-shorter delivery times. Simplified engineering, planning, and implementation mean additional competitive advantages for them. The SIVACON 8MF1 system cubicles were rigorously designed for the stricter requirements of control cabinet manufacturing.
The right solutions
The SIVACON 8MF1 modular system facilitates tailored solutions for nearly all industrial sectors and applications. Completely preassembled, adapted to specific requirements, or fully customized, the system cubicles support the individual value chain in panel building. With SIVACON 8MF1, you can also rely on absolute compliance with standards: The enclosures meet all the usual standards and regulations. Special designs, control cabinets with various special certifications and approvals, and variants customized to sector-specific requirements can be individually developed.
One system – multiple combinations
The basis for the diversified modular system is the frame, available in 90 standard sizes and combinable with more than 2,000 elements. The flexible SIVACON 8MF1 system cubicle can be ordered for self-assembly or pre-assembled.
At your request, we can modify our standard portfolio according to your exact specifications. We offer paint finishes in special or functional colors, customized cutouts, galvanized enclosures, enclosures in special sizes, and elements with a particular sheet metal thickness. You can continue processing your cubicle as soon as it’s delivered, which saves valuable time for machining and painting.
We work together with you to develop enclosures that meet your precise requirements: for example, special dimensions, individual sheet metal fittings, or special approvals. You benefit from our experience in in mechanical panel design and processing, while saving on development and assembly effort.
From standard designs and special fabrication to custom-painted models, all system cubicles are delivered quickly – if necessary, coordinated with your production cycle, fully assembled, or in individual parts. This minimizes warehouse costs, reduces tied-up capital, and shortens cycle times.
The SIVACON 8MR system air-conditioning ensures that the electrical and electronic devices installed in the cabinet operate fault-free, even under harsh ambient conditions. It prevents condensation and frost damage and protects against the malfunctions that might result. The portfolio ranges from filter fans, cooling devices, and heaters to thermostats. In operating rooms, due to natural convection ventilated system cubicles can be used alternatively to air conditioning.
The different versions of SIVACON 8MF/8MR system lighting offer optimal lighting conditions for installation and maintenance. The LED technology saves energy and prevents the need for maintenance.
Greater efficiency in planning and operation
All the necessary engineering data for all components within the SIVACON 8MF1 system cubicles is available online, 24/7 in neutral data formats for your CAD or CAE systems. You’ll also find ePlan macros for preconfigured system cubicles, including ProPanel data, in the ePlan Data Portal and the CAx download manager. This saves you valuable engineering time. The ProPanel data supports your automated production process.
Software-based power-loss calculation
With the SIMARIS therm software, you can easily and precisely dimension the heat dissipation of your control cubicles by entering the ambient temperature and selecting the relevant devices in the cubicle. The right SIVACON 8MF1 system cubicle can be selected according to the attributes for calculation of the maximum power loss via the software. Requisite devices from the SENTRON, SIRIUS, SIMATIC, SINAMICS, and SITOP portfolios can be integrated with the click of a mouse. The generated power loss value of the selected devices is calculated according to the actual application (e.g. according to the rated current, coincidence factor, etc.). With just the push of a button, the software generates a calculation result with all relevant data. This result can be used as certification of the relevant standards IEC 61439, IEC 60204-1 or IEC 60890.
