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 Windows 2000.

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 controllers.

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.
