Suitable for your needs

With SIVACON 8MF system cubicles, you can count on a system that adapts to meet your needs. This wide range of control cubicles is used in mechanical engineering and plant building, control engineering, wind power, photovoltaics, and many other industries. Customers select from a host of standard versions, and they configure their cubicle themselves with the help of a flexible modular system, or they profit from tailor-made special solutions.

SIVACON 8MR system lighting

Optimum illumination

Thanks to use of the maintenance-free and energy-saving LED technology, the SIVACON 8MF/8MR system lighting has a very long useful life. By means of magnetic fixing, the lights can be fastened anywhere in steel cubicles without installation effort, thus ensuring optimum illumination. Electrical connection is established via a two-pin plug with a lock. This minimizes wiring effort at the customer's premises.

SIVACON 8MR system air-conditioning

Adaptive temperature control

The integrated SIVACON 8MR system air-conditioning portfolio can be adapted to all customer requirements. It is ideally suitable for control cubicles with restricted space conditions and a high density of built-in electrical/electronic components. Control cubicle heater units are used for uniform temperature control of control cubicles and enclosures with built-in electrical/electronic components. This avoids condensation or frost and consequent malfunctions. This is decisive for the availability and reliability of the control cubicle.

In control cubicles, depending on the ambient conditions (e.g. heat, cold, air humidity etc.), there may be a tendency to overheat or for mold to form. In such cases the cubicles should be air-conditioned. The following air-conditioning equipment is available for this purpose:

  • Filter fans
  • Air conditioners/cooling devices
  • Heat exchangers
  • Heaters/thermostats

When selecting individual air-conditioning components, the ambient temperature, the power losses of the installed devices, the maximum permissible device temperatures and the heat dissipation capacity of the cubicle used are the factors to be considered. In addition, it is necessary to take into account the required degree of protection.

We offer you flexible control cabinet installation with 2000 accessory elements and 90 enclosures:


Calculation tool:

SIMARIS therm helps you to correctly dimension the heat dissipation of control cabinets.
