Silent workstations or operator station at remote location
In our oelfine plant operators in C.C.R are complaining that sound level of operator stations of DCS ABB 800xA is high and want us to tackle the problem. I came up with two solution first is that use silent workstation that ABB has recommended for using in C.C.R second is that we use a panel in auxiliary room and collect all operator stations in C.C.R and use 2U rack mounted pcs ( 8 pieces) in the panel all together but problem is that we have to use remote keyboard, mouse and monitor using ATEN extender products to transfer video, mouse and keyboard from auxiliary room to C.C.R about 30 meters and also provide power for their adapters and also power for adapter in panels. the second solution seems a bit costly and work demanding, however the pros might be no noise in C.C.R and no dust goes into stations in panel. but the first solution is easy and in my opinion is more reliable since no need to extender. I want your opinions that if you were if you were in my situation what would you do? Appresiate your helpful comments. thanks.
