Settle In for Some Serious Control

Sept. 9, 2014
Visitors to This Week's Yokogawa's 2014 User Group Experience One Vision of Tomorrow's Operator Console

Seeking yet more control, Paul Studebaker contemplates an upgrade to Recaro seating and Bose sound system.

On the exhibit floor at Yokogawa’s User Group event this week in Houston, Paul Studebaker, Control editor in chief, got a sneak peek at every control freak's dream: an ergonomic console offering many features designed to keep the operator rested and focused, including three strategically positioned 24-inch monitors, wireless keyboard and mouse, cup holder and integral head, wrist and footrests. This personal control console offers a futuristic vision that’s available today for operators and managers who need or want to be surrounded by information, according to Wataru Nakagawa, product marketing consultant at Yokogawa’s Technical Solution Support Center in Sugar Land, Texas. Based on an Emperor workstation by MWE Lab, the highly stable steel structure includes powered tilting capabilities, integrated audio system and LED lighting that enable the user to experience unprecedented comfort and quasi total immersion, at the plant or, perhaps, in his or her den at home. Control fanatics can upgrade with Recaro seating, Bose surround sound, ionic air purification and two additional 19-inch monitors.
