Elabo TaCom. The Modular System for Traffic and Security Control Stations.
Elabo, the Crailsheim-based company for technically sophisticated workstation systems, has developed a completely new process control station system.
The system concept, called "Elabo TaCom" is based on the latest ergonomic discoveries while importance is placed on the optimum integration of technology. It measures up superbly both to market conditions and to increased technical requirements on system variability. The perfect, ergonomic solutions enable a person to concentrate to their maximum ability. In addition, high levels of concentration over long periods are guaranteed by means of optimum insulation of workstations against noise and heat. All control station variants can be equipped with optional electrically powered height adjustment, both in the seated area (720 mm) and standing area (1200 mm). The selection of materials used and their finishing in construction do justice to the tough durability demands of 24-hour continuous operation.
Elabo TaCom sets itself apart because of its clear arrangement in functional units. It consists of an Elabo Tec-Safe, which can either hold the entire technical apparatus or just the electrical cabling. The interior mechanisms of the Tec-Safe switch cabinet is 19"-compatible and additional equipment can be added individually as required. The desktop worktop for all administrative tasks can, depending on the required task, be equipped with a module for the integration of operating controls or display elements or a module for the attachment of monitors. Cathode ray tubes (CRT) or flat screens (TFT) can be optimally integrated and positioned. Both open and encased monitor variants are available as standard produced elements of the TaCom modular system.
The requirements imposed on traffic and security control systems vary greatly depending on the degree of mechanisation in place. When selecting the control station workstation, personal and spatial conditions must be taken into account. In the case of several control stations in one room, visible contact between workstation is often desirable, in specific cases it may even be imperative. If control displays in the form of a multi-screen wall or video wall are used, optimum visibility must be assured. Control stations which control all operating and display elements including communications equipment by means of a PC and display them on monitors are subject to requirements different from control stations with a relatively large number of stand-alone manual devices. The technical hardware takes up more space and must be able to be integrated in such a way as makes ergonomic sense. Self-sufficient, analogue radio devices, for example, impose quite different requirements on operation and operator than digital radio devices controlled with the aid of a keyboard, mouse and head-set. This is where the variability of the Elabo TaCom control station comes into its own. Elabo TaCom is a modular concept which provides maximum flexibility. It is a typical Elabo open space system, facilitating the development of a concatenated system from a stand-alone workstation solution. Thus it is easily possible to react to current needs and requirements step by step with the aid the TaCom modular system. In the Elabo TaCom, a host of intelligent solutions addressing fine details are deployed which reduce installation times and servicing times and thus maximise operating times. In addition, installing and refitting are extraordinary fast with Elabo TaCom.
Elabo TaCom is very versatile with regard to its range of uses: It can be deployed in the areas of telecommunications and industry, in the energy sector, in data processing and computer centres, as well as in network management, traffic control stations, emergency services, fire brigade, police and property protection. In addition, it is suitable for building technology central control, gate and test stations and likewise for production control stations, not least because of its great variability of design.
The competence range of Elabo GmbH, whose headquarters are in Crailsheim, includes concept design, production and assembly of technical furnishings according to ergonomic and process methodological factors. All technical equipment can be integrated and installed in-house. Established in 1972, Elabo employs 200 employees and today is European market leader.
