Control Room Technology
Control Room Solution:
Design and Functionality
A design that is both functional and ergonomic is a basic criterion not only for the reliable and error-free operation of a plant, but also for operator motivation and alertness. For us, the specialists in control room design, plant requirements and operator needs are the two major aspects of control room design. As it is vitally important that a control room and its operators are considered as a whole, our integral design concepts are based on ergonomic and anthropotechnical principles apart from fulfilling technological and economical requirements.
Taking into account all technological standards, spatial conditions and material requirements, we produce a computer simulation of the future control room in close cooperation with the customer. This simulated model allows the control room personnel to visually "walk through" and "feel" its future working environment. Our long-standing experience in the design of control rooms is your guarantee for receiving an expert and qualitybased service throughout the entire project from the utilization draft to the detailed planning and finally the installation of the chosen technology, be it mosaic displays or large-screen rear projections.
Our customer-specific mosaic systems are installed in numerous control rooms all over the world. Not least because of their variable application and arrangement possibilities they offer optimal solutions for a variety of processes that require clear and well-structured representation.
Today our mosaic displays are installed for example in the New York Central Station, the Tianwan nuclear power station in China, and the Florida Power and Light Generating Plant where the world’s largest mosaic panel has been constructed using as many as 450,000 Mauell components.
Large-sized ME multiView cubes and ME multiView LCD displays are at the heart of our visualization technology for control rooms and other monitoring facilities. Optionally all input and output information from modern information processing equipment can be routed virtually and with client-oriented precision with our standard ME multiView controllers. The devices can be arranged freely to form large straight line or polygonal pixel volume areas. This opens the way for a future-oriented and interactive information unit that combines ergonomic design with optimal application effi ciency and that can be comprehensively integrated in our customer-friendly maintenance and service concept.
