WINSTED CONSOLES TO HELP DEVELOP FUTURE OF NUCLEAR PLANT CONTROL ROOM TECHNOLOGY AT FIRST-EVER R&D FACILITY
Posted on Thursday, July 10, 2014
MINNEAPOLIS, July 8, 2014 — Winsted Corporation (www.winsted.com) announced today the completion of a modular console used to aid research and development of nuclear control room technology. Partnering with the Center of Safe and Secure Nuclear Energy (CSSNE), Winsted consoles will play a significant role in the new facility, which will serve to research emerging control room technologies and educate the next generation of operators. 
 
The CSSNE is a collaborative effort between the nonprofit Center for Advanced Engineering Research (CAER), the University of Virginia, local industry partners and other higher education institutions. At the core of the CSSNE is the Reconfigurable Main Control Room Simulator (RMCRS) designed to research the modernization and design of existing control rooms. 
 
Winsted’s reconfigurable modular consoles are key components of the RMCRS. 
 
Console design features 
Modular construction for disassembling and reassembling in different configurations
Single or multiple operator arrangement alternatives
“W” shaped, “U” shaped, straight and various other configuration options
Unique Versa-Trak monitor mounting system that allows for sightline and viewing angle modification based on operator preferences
Can accept from one to five 24-inch monitors
Conform to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) NUREG standard 0700 “Human-System Interface Design Review Guidelines.” 
Ergonomic design to aid researchers in achieving safety and performance objectives 
 
Flat panel monitors and digital instrumentation and control (I&C) systems are slowly replacing the hard control panels, lights and dials in the shift from analog to digital controls. As a result, digital technology makes it possible for operators to access controls through keyboards instead of standing at control boards, which is a significant shift in working conditions. Winsted consoles meet this change in conditions with ergonomically designed, state-of-the art workstations.
