The ruggedised display module and its icon-driven control software will be immediately familiar to users of modern Smartphones and latest-generation Sat-Nav systems. Alongside safety, efficiency is key to plant operators. With the new system from James Fisher Prolec (Prolec), control for safety is intrinsic, and is addressed though sophisticated sensors, monitoring and patented software modelling and intelligent processing.
Operational efficiency, however, depends on many other factors. One is the ease with which operators can set up and use the control system. That’s why Prolec has developed a robust touch-screen interface, free from moving parts and hermetically sealed against the contaminants often present in plant equipment operating environments.
The powerful processing platform is in fact at the heart of the new Prolec control system; the attractive touch-screen display is the friendly face. Like the central control system itself, the user interface is easy to upgrade through software to add extra functionality as and when required.
