Electronic System Removal and Relocation
Hytec Electronics specialises in the
removal and re-commissioning of complex electronic systems. Our range of
services include, dismantling, packing, relocation, reassembly and installation
of all IT and specialist electronic equipment.A recent requirement which
involved moving a computer based simulator from one site to another together
with converting associated software is described below.
Empower Training Ltd, a newly formed
power station control room personnel training company, uses a sophisticated
hardware and software simulator to provide hands-on training.Both coal and oil
power station models are supported and Hytec have been contracted to both move
the simulator and port the simulator software from Encore computers to PCs using
The simulator move involved dismantling the
complete hardware desk assembly (one unit weighing over 5 tons) and dismantling
walls etc., and physically moving the components, and then re-assembling the
whole simulator in a new location.
The dismantling, move and re-assembly are now
complete with re-commissioning underway. The software upgrade is ongoing and
involves moving the entire model code (written in Fortran) across to a Windows
2000 environment (using Visual Fortran). This tedious yet demanding process will
be ongoing for some months yet. The upgrade involves replacing the older system
crate CAMAC hardware (CAMAC branches et al) with Hytec ECC1365 Ethernet CAMAC
The following illustrations show some of the work involved.
We have been carrying out specialist system
moving for many years and our reputation for reliability and quality is now well
established. It is based upon the detailed planning that goes into each segment
of the move.
Project Managers with many years experience of
large and small relocations are assigned to each relocation task. Teams include
skilled and mobile crews of operational staff together with experienced
mechanical and electrical services engineers who are under Hytec's supervision
at all times.
