When developing a control room desk we make sure it meets the following standards:
- Healthy working posture and leg space
- Healthy viewing angles
- Overview and visual tranquillity
- Clean desk by system integration
- Maintenance and transportation
- Ops service package
Our control room console ensures healthy working postures for operators of all shapes and sizes. Since we serve clients all over the world, we fit the height adjustment range to your actual operator population. Switching between sitting and standing working postures is beneficial for body and mind and will help operators to stay focussed. That is why our operator consoles are easy adjustable, changing working heights in seconds. All our desks ensure clear leg and feet space underneath the full width of the console without any loose cables or frames.
Our split-level design ensures healthy viewing angles, preventing operators for neck- and shoulder ache. Split-level means that the design allows the first tier of displays to be positioned lower than the desktop, limiting the more strenuous upper viewing angles. By making the display height independently adjustable from the worksurface, operators can adjust the viewing height according to personal needs (different body dimensions, wearing glasses etc.) and actual situation (e.g. central videowall).
Biodynamic lighting is a lighting concept that can support the biorythm of your operators - during both day and night shifts as long as the lighting concept is properly configured. The concept is based on a programmed light plan varying in light intensity and colour. The programme matches the actual shift planning on site. The light plan is according the ergonomic lighting guidelines in control rooms, preventing high contrast differences and glare.
Operators experience the following benefits:

The toolbar is designed to accommodate a variety of displays. The quick release system makes displays easy to replace guaranteeing operations continuity. The monitor support arms are robust and shock resistant facilitating a proper alignment. Ops Factor strongly advises to only use 24/7 displays, displays with a small bezel, no mixture of type, brands, sizes etc.
Although operators are known for their multi-task skills, they cannot operate two keyboards simultaneously or have two phone calls at the same time. With KVM technology we can reduce the number of keyboards on an operator desk and provide overview and focus for the operator. Regarding telecom, we work with partners that are specialised in integrating multiple communication sources (analogue and digital radio, LTE, telephone, intercom etc.) to one user friendly interface. One central device with one headset, prioritising the sources in line with your operations philosophy.
Ops Factor values quality of our products and service. Our control room desk is built according to our high-quality standards making the workstations highly reliable and easy to clean. The technical cabinet provides enough space for multiple equipment, power supply and proper cable management. Easily accessible for maintenance and service. Unique is the fact that this control room console is easy to transport and mount on location without needing special expertise or a service team to do so. Not only operability, but also maintainability and cleanability have our priority.
