—Literature Available Bailey Controls Company of Wickliffe, Ohio, has completed the construction of their new process control demonstration facilities. Located at the company's headquarters, the facility offers guests a chance to observe the operation of process plants, power generation facilities, marine vessels, and ocean platforms without ever leaving this administrative and manufacturing center in suburban Cleveland.
The new demonstration area is three times larger than previous facilities, and was built in response to increasing demand for the Bailey Network 90 Control System now in use at over 3,000 locations around the world. Network 90-equipped installations include power stations, steel mills, pulp and paper mills, refineries, chemical plants and food processing plants.
Distinctly futuristic in design, the new Bailey demonstration facilities include two control rooms—The Network 90 Presentation Theatre and the Control Room of the Future— plus a well-appointed reception lounge and a spacious exhibit area.
The Network 90 Presentation Theatre seats twelve guests and displays the Network 90 System for plantwide process control. The room is outfitted with large screen audio-visual equipment to display process application information.
The Control Room of the Future also accommodates up to twelve guests, and includes a series of operator interface stations which can show simultaneous actual and graphic images of the various processes being controlled. Featured is the Bailey Management Command System, a high-level, CRT-based system which can provide a monitoring and control for up to 30,000 points throughout a manufacturing facility. Building upon this technology, Bailey will use the Control Room of the Future to showcase other emerging technologies in the field of process control.
"The demonstration facility was designed to provide Bailey guests with an opportunity to examine and experience the many capabilities of Network 90, a process control system which we expect to see well into the 21st Century," explains Bailey vice president of marketing, Larry Enterline.
Network 90 is based on microprocessor architecture designed to take advantage of what is characterized as the "transparent technology approach," that is, the system's ability to continually incorporate improvements and thereby avoid obsolescence.
This approach allows Network 90 to benefit from both existing technology as well as the most sophisticated state-of-the-art advancements, maintaining it at the "cutting edge" of process control applications.
