On the G&D stand at Hannover Messe, one of the highlights will be the ControlCenter-Compact with both its wide range of functions and its simple and intuitive operation. It features a range of mission-critical and user-friendly features, such as CrossDisplay-Switching, the push-get function and scenario switching to make the work of the control room staff as efficient as possible. The integrated CrossDisplay-Switching is extremely useful for multi-monitor workstations. Here, users are able to swicth between channels simply by moving the mouse. The mouse acts as if on a “virtual desktop” and can be moved seamlessly across the connected displays. When moving the cursor from the active to an inactive display, the keyboard-mouse focus automatically switches to the connected computer. This way, for users it feels like working on a virtual desktop.
The push-get function, which is available for all digital matrix switches, is also ideal for the cooperation of several operators in industrial control rooms. With the Push-Get function, users can move the screen contents of a target to (push) - or get it from - the display of another console. This display can be a large screen projection, for example. By using this function, operators can work together on solving issues.
Switching between day and night shift often also requires the operation and monitoring of different computer constellations. Scenario switching makes it possible to store predefined setups of switching conditions (e.g. day/night scenario). The selected switching states are saved in a script in the matrix system and can be accessed and executed via the OSD of workplaces assigned with the required rights.
