BBV Pick-a-Point graphical user interface

Product Profile

The BBV Pick-a-Point graphical user interface, from Building Block Video Ltd, has been employed at West Burton Power Station to simplify operator process control and monitoring of the coal-fired plant.  Used in conjunction with the BBV TX1500 telemetry keyboard and Dedicated Micros' System Sprite, the Pick-a-Point enables a small number of staff in the control room to oversee the production process throughout the plant.

Designed to give operators control of three 16-way DM System Sprites and a matrix from one position via the graphical user interface and a single keyboard, the system enables direct control of 27 cameras situated over key operational areas to help minimise downtime caused by blockages in the system.  The graphical user interface allows operators to view up to ten different (changeable) configurations of quad camera images, per System Sprite, at any time.

A 2-dimensional map of the whole site shows individual camera positions, making it much easier for operators to locate them.  In addition, the configuration of the system enables 2 or more individual control points to have shared viewing and control - which means that the system can be expanded to cover the Power Station's new plant, to be commissioned later this year.
