Strongarm Designs Develops Ergonomic Interface Solution for Cabin Applications

Press release date: August 21, 2014

Strongarm Designs has developed an HMI solution that addresses the challenges faced by drill cabin operators. The MiniStation features the industry standard Vertica adjustable pendant arm, and can be ceiling-mounted to allow for quick and effortless repositioning. The counterbalanced arm allows the operator to position the display exactly where needed, and can be adjusted vertically to suit the operator's preference.

The MiniStation addresses one of the greatest challenges faced by drilling rig operators, line of sight. Operators need to have clear visibility of the work area while maintaining instant access to their interface displays.

Xtreme Coil Drilling Corp. recently employed the new solution to solve its ergonomic interface challenges.

Gary Werner, project engineer with Xtreme Coil Drilling, said "We required a robust overhead mounting system, complete with display that provided adequate adjustment flexibility for operator use and servicing control panels locations. We needed to allow the operators to move their monitors in order to improve visibility, unlike our preexisting monitor equipment that was fixed-mounted.

"We investigated competing operator interface system vendors, but Strongarm was the only one willing to address our requirements by directly involving their design team personnel to meet our specific requirements and delivery schedule."

Strongarm's ability to rapidly customize these systems meant that it could address all of Xtreme Coil's interface needs. These included fully integrated keyboard trays, easily accessible keyboard and mouse ports, KVM extenders for remote PC locations, and customized mountings to facilitate easy installation into the operator cabins on drilling rigs.
