With Rittal TS8 enclosures, the door stop determines the required direction of rotation of the DoorLock-RA4 square spindle. The rotary movement of the mandrel is converted into a linear movement by the adapter. A DoorLock with the order number KXC-RA4-IPx-R is required for a left-hinged door and a DoorLock with the order number KXC-RA4-IPx-L is required for a right-hinged door. The following illustration shows both variants of the door stop.

Right-hinged door

A distinction must also be made between doors with and without a design bevel. The design bevel determines the order number of the adapter. Adapters with the order number KXC-RA4-RITTAL-TS8 are required for doors without a design bevel and adapters with the order number KXC-RA4-RITTAL-TS8-DSG are required for doors with a design bevel.

The hole pattern above is required to install the DoorLock-RA4 on a right-hinged door. A hole of at least 12.5 mm must be drilled in the door so that the connection cable can be fed through the door. If the door is hinged on the left, the position of the hole must be mirrored.

The position of the hole can be marked using a drilling template. The template is available on request.

Assembly steps

  1. Drill hole for cable entry
  2. Feed the connection cable through the hole
  3. Place spacer sleeves on the adapter driver (only for doors without design bevel)
  4. Connecting the cable to the DoorLock
  5. Attach DoorLock to the door with spacer sleeves
  6. Fasten the DoorLock with the two screws supplied (tightening torque 1.8 Nm)

First connect the DoorLock with the slimline patch cable before attaching it to the rack. Only install the DoorLock when it is open!

Tools required

  1. Metal drill bit with a diameter of at least 12.5 mm
  2. TORX® screwdriver with drive size 25
