Electronic catalogues

What are electronic catalogues?

An electronic catalogue is a resource providing information about products. It contains far more information than printed catalogues, and can be searched for specific data. Because an electronic catalogue is based on standards, the data structure is familiar, enabling recipients to process the data in a meaningful way, for example, to select and order products. Alongside wholesalers, a growing number of direct clients are now also turning to electronic catalogues, because they are comprehensive, tested, and clearly defined information resource. Engineers can also incorporate the data into their plans. Electronic catalogues from Rittal use codes to enable them to be used internationally. The file format is based on an XML structure.

The XML-based, standardised file format BMEcat is used to exchange product information and conditions.
