Georgia Pacific operates a paper mill near Portland, OR. They needed to upgrade a Honeywell DCS system, and wanted a console that would protect their process control equipment in a demanding environment. They came to ImageVision to provide them a long lasting, all steel console. Because of light colored lime dust in the area, they preferred a lighter color laminate for their console work surface than our standard “Charcoal Matrix” – NO PROBLEM! Custom laminates in numerous colors and wood grains are available (see Nevamar Laminates link in our “Options-Laminates” page). Also, custom colors are frequently provided for our steel technical furniture to meet our customer’s specific design and decorating requirements.
Our perspective on custom requirements:
Your Custom Need is Our New Standard Feature
Our modular industrial enclosure housed process control computers. The base of the console had lockable-hinged doors in both front and rear for easy access to the distributed control systems components. Pull out style CPU trays and adjustable height shelves were supplied in the computer cabinets to store additional equipment.
The operator interface was accomplished via touch screen CRT’s which were placed on movable 4 inch “monitor risers.” These risers, and the “printer risers” were fabricated with laminate surfaces to match the consoles custom laminate. Placing the industrial monitors on risers allowed the operators to store a standard “QWERTY” computer keyboard under each of the monitors while operating the kiln control process from custom DCS keyboards in front of the risers. The dual keyboards and pointing devices at each operator station had access into the console via “GracePort” TM interface devices supplied by Grace Engineered Products, Inc. This insured the integrity of the computer enclosure was maintained while connecting processors to various peripheral devices.
