Intelligent Extended Operator Workplace EOW-i

Smart control room ergonomics create a micro environment that improves health, puts the operator in focus to increase situation awareness and reduce downtime.

The Extended Operator Workplace (EOW) offers unparalleled ergonomics, visualization and communication solutions for operators. The EOW-i ensures operator alertness, and when action is needed; keeps the essential functions at the operator’s fingertips.

Designed to support effective interaction in an 24/7 control room environment:

  • Plant visualization and information all in one view.
  • Process overviews on close-by large interactive panels.
  • One fast-acting functional keyboard for controlling the complete operator environment.
  • Control room space reduction by around 30% or more.
  • Improved plant-wide collaboration and optimization.
  • Increased applicant appeal and job satisfaction.

The sets of monitors are mounted in a way that enables both a focused and a general view of operations. A seamless panorama of the current view is created by the ultra narrow bezels on the main screens.

Desk and monitor height, secondary monitors’ angle, and depth of main monitors are motorized and adjustable, to ensure an ergonomic and customized operator environment.

The personalized settings can be saved and automatically restored to fit each operator’s preferences
