Metrix Goes Nuclear
Another successful installation of Metrix bargraph displays has been made by an energy generation customer. OC2001-57 500mm bargraphs were chosen by EDF Energy for Sizewell B nuclear power station.
Steven Wootten—Sizewell B Systems Health Engineer—said, “We required a new electronic level indicator on the live steam drains tank at Sizewell B which was visible to the operator up close and from a distance. In addition to this we required the indicator to be able to show the level set points for a range of different running regimes. Metrix Electronics comprehensive range of bargraph indicators was ideally suited to the task. The drains tank level can now be viewed from the operating hall floor at a glance and anyone can see if a set point is approaching. This modification has made a significant improvement to the operators when returning the plant to service and has simplified the return to service of the steam drainage system coming out of a turbine outage”.
