ISE Speaker Session: Future control room design
The control room as we know it is changing, and this change is being driven by a number of different factors. Firstly, there’s the issue of performance. With the control room being relied upon for an ever-increasing number of tasks, it’s important that each room is kitted out with versatile, high-performance equipment. The wellbeing of operators also needs to be taken into account — control rooms can quickly become unbearably cramped and full of equipment- and crucial steps must be taken to make it a more work-friendly environment for everyone involved.
The solution for combatting these problems begins during the control design phase, taking the function of the room, the space and the technology options into consideration. This is what I’ll be discussing in more detail at the Integrated Systems Europe trade show, which takes place next month in Amsterdam. I’ll be hosting my presentation, titled ‘Future control room design: the role of technology’, between 15:30 and 16:00 on February 9th in the Commercial Solutions Theatre. It would be great to see you there for what’s sure to be an enlightening half-hour session.
If you can’t make the presentation, Adder Technology will be at ISE for the duration of the show, where we’ll be demonstrating the new Adder CCS-PRO8 command and control switch and the AdderLink XDIP to our visitors. We’ll be at stand 10-P122, so come find us and say hello.
