Innovative projectors suit control room projects
27 September 2011
Global Control Center Design, a Norwegian systems integrator, has installed projectiondesign FR12 Remote Light Source (RLS) projectors as part of an offshore control room monitoring project to help optimise workflow.
The Statfjord C platform is situated in the oil and gas field in the North Sea and is operated by Statoil.
The FR12 RLS projector has been designed to meet control room requirements and incorporates an innovative design feature, which sees the lamps being relocated, up to 30m away from the projector head, in a rack-mounted enclosure. Light from this rack-mounted RLS illuminates the projector head via a Liquid Light Guide (LLG) and results in a compact, ruggedised and virtually maintenance-free projector head that is silent in operation and is suited to use in space-restricted installations, which are often found in offshore control rooms.
Global Control Center Design has deployed F82 projectors in other projects, including Borregaard, which is said to be Norway's largest biorefinery, located in Sarpsborg. Here, the projectors are used on a 12 x 1.8m rear projection display in front of operators to monitor the plants processes 24/7. The product was specified for use in this application because of its low-maintenance, reduced noise, high contrast and image quality.
The FR12 will be on show, alongside other control room innovations from projectiondesign, such as the F82 projector, at the UK event for commercial audio & video technology, xSolutions 2011, held at ExCeL in London from 19th to 20th October.
