Control room consoles and control center desks: How the right choice has a positive impact on employee health and satisfaction
Ergonomic control room furniture and top-motivated teamwork are inextricably linked – this is proven by experience in hundreds of control rooms furnished by JST. Practical experience shows that employee concentration and productivity can be demonstrably increased by choosing correct workplace ergonomics, lighting, material and color design, acoustics and climatic conditions. Therefore, the following applies to the Stratos operator desk: It is not only the visual advantages that make the X11 the class leader in the segment of high-quality control room desks. The inner values count! Stability and legroom, lowered monitor set-up surfaces and illuminated supply areas … these are just some of the features that have made the Stratos operator console the No. 1 in the branch.
Bild 1 | Carefully thought-out space planning characterizes the new control room at INGAVER GmbH in Bremen. The custom-built Stratos consoles offer numerous ergonomic benefits. In addition to generous legroom and a particularly deep tabletop with a lowered monitor placement surface, these include in particular the electromotive height adjustment, which, for example, makes it possible to switch between sitting and standing. Every operator can adapt "his" Stratos X11 to his specific needs.
Bild 2 | Futuristic design - the new control station at HeidelbergCement in Ennigerloh is not only visually impressive. It's the inner values that count. For example, employees now benefit from the advantages of ergonomic furniture and a methodically thought-out technical control room concept.
Bild 3 | The topic of "ergonomics" played a central role in the furnishing of TraveNetz's new network control center in Lübeck. Here, for example, by means of work tables that are easy on the back. The height adjustment of the Stratos X11 operator consoles up to standing height enables an alternating body posture and avoids damage to health.
Bild 4 | Functional planning and proactive visualization of the various systems - at the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin, visual appearance and design obviously have a high priority. For example, the corporate design of the Helmholtz Center was taken up with the stainless steel logos in the side panels of the operator consoles.
Bild 5 | The individual production of the control center furniture makes it possible: In the new control room of protec service GmbH in Hanover, the side panels of the control center tables were designed in the corporate design of the security service provider in accordance with the customer's order.
Bild 6 | Highest ergonomic requirements: In the FIS control station (production and control system) at VW Wolfsburg, employees are monitoring complex systems; from the receipt of orders for the plant to the run-in to the assembly lines.
Bild 7 | The operator team in the control room of Messe Berlin benefits from the extensive experience of JST specialists. The perfect combination of technology and design - here in interaction with the AlarmLight on the Stratos X11 consoles and the large screen wall - creates ideal conditions for smooth operation.
Bild 8 | The control room desks of the Stratos series (here the "Curve" model) allow a change between sitting and standing height, thus preventing health hazards. "Employees use the opportunity to change positions several times during their shift," explains project manager Waldemar Seibel from Ineos Oxide.
Bild 9 | The Stratos control room consoles, here in two different design variants, are convincing in terms of ergonomics. In particular, the comfortable switch between sitting and standing height is appreciated by the control center team. "There are quite a number of colleagues who like to use this option. I count myself among them," reports project manager Christian Weber from ovag Netz GmbH.
Bild 10 | The newly created workstations in the Bremen Police Department's video control center were installed according to the latest ergonomic principles. This includes, for example, an electromotive height adjustment of the control room consoles, which allows different users on 24/7 shift duty to adjust the Stratos desk to individual needs.

For which applications are the control room desks and control room consoles suitable?
The JST control center table not only stands for high quality and adaptability, but also for planning security and investment protection. A control room desk from the Stratos X11 range is designed for the flexible installation of all workplace monitors in accordance with official handling instructions and guidelines. The operator can therefore carry out his tasks safely, without errors and without short or long-term damage to his health. The Stratos X11 control center table not only stands for high quality and adaptability, but also for planning security and investment protection. It counteracts impairments such as fatigue of the eye muscles or complaints in the shoulder-neck area. This allows to maintain the efficiency and health of the operators as long as possible.
What are the special features of the control room console?
- The stability: The Stratos X11 control room table is manufactured exclusively in high quality. It is recommended for demanding operation in control rooms, where very resistant materials are usually required. Furthermore, it is… “Made in Germany”.
- Ergonomics: The Stratos X11 complies with the “Handlungshilfen für Bildschirmarbeit in Leitwarten” (Guidelines for working with display screen equipment in control rooms) of the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA).
This is because the activities of operators in a control room fall within the scope of DGUV Information 215-410.
This regulation is the basis for the Stratos X11 designs and JST space planning.
- Design and architecture: An appropriate design has a motivating effect, prevents absences due to illness, increases satisfaction and reduces the fluctuation of your employees in the long term. The equipment and arrangement of the workstations is based on the special orientation of your processes in the control room. In doing so, we examine the information hierarchy and check that the viewing angles and viewing distances to large screen walls are observed. Of course, we take into account the employer’s liability insurance association’s workplace regulations (escape and traffic routes, control panels, etc.) and the EU guidelines for computer workstations.
- Flexibility: Whether U-shaped, L-shaped, convex, concave or simply straight installed; the Stratos X11 control center table can be combined in almost any variant. Stratos X11 is available in various widths from 120 cm to 260 cm. The model “Curve” is available with a width of about 300 cm or about 360 cm. All corner elements and straight units can be combined as desired in a round shape.
- Handling safety: Our AlarmLight in the control center desk is an LED RGB light strip located on the Stratos rear wall above the monitors, right/middle and right/down. The AlarmLight is used on the one hand for good optics, on the other hand it increases the attention drastically in case of critical alarms. Event-controlled light signals are demonstrably perceived more strongly by the entire team than information on a monitor. The AlarmLight is controlled by your monitoring or process control system to change color depending on the event. Flashing and pulsing of the AlarmLight is also individually adjustable. After prior technical coordination, JST will install the LED RGB light band, the control module and the software completely for you.
What legal and occupational health requirements do the control room consoles comply with?
DGUV Information 215-410 (formerly BGI 650): This guideline of the „Deutsche Gesetzlichen Unfallversicherung e.V.“ specifies the safety, occupational medicine, ergonomic and occupational psychology requirements for the design and operation of Screen and office workstations.
Screen work in control rooms: These guidelines for the ergonomic design of workplaces in accordance with the Display Screen Equipment Ordinance, now the Workplace Ordinance, on behalf of the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) are based on important findings that are particularly important when planning a control room.
DIN EN 527-1:2011-08: This standard is of European origin and contains specifications for dimensions of office desks (size and height of the work surface, dimensions of the leg room) and for measuring these dimensions.
DIN EN 527-2:2003-01: This standard is of European origin and contains mechanical safety requirements for office desks with regard to construction and stability.
DIN EN 527-3:2003-06: This standard is of European origin and contains specifications on the test conditions, test equipment, test procedures and test report with regard to the determination of the mechanical strength of the construction of ready-to-use office desks and their stability.
Electrically adjustable: The Stratos X11 control room desk optionally available with continuously variable electromotive standing/sitting height adjustment. The height adjustment range is 650 mm to 1250 mm according to DIN EN 527-1:2011.
For height adjustment, the specified safety distance (danger of crushing) of 3 cm according to DIN EN 527-1:2011 is maintained between table tops and between table top and side panel.
To minimize the risk of accidents during height adjustment, a collision protection sensor is integrated.
For example, if the tabletop moves onto a solid object, the motor stops.
Material damage is thereby avoided as far as possible.
Especially practical: the Memory function for standing-height adjustment.
As an option to the standard operating unit of the standing height adjustment, the operating comfort can be increased. Three altitude settings are stored and accessed at the touch of a button.
For an optimal standing/sitting position, a display informs at which height the table top is currently located.
3D Monitor arms: With the optionally available 3D monitor arms, the operator can individually adjust the visual distance and angle of view to his needs.
Even at a short viewing distance, there is still enough desk space in front of the monitor, e.g. a DIN A4 sheet.
The viewing distance is maintained at 450 mm to 750 mm according to DIN EN 527-1:2011.
Lowered monitor shelf space: The monitors are lowered for ergonomic reasons 10 cm behind the worktop on a separate shelf.
This enables you to achieve a head tilt of approx. 15°, which prevents tension in the neck area.
Especially employees with progressive glasses will not want to miss this feature anymore.
Comfortable foot space: Occupational physicians pay particular attention to sufficient depth of foot and leg room.
At this point, Stratos X11 offers far more than the guidelines for screen workstations prescribe.
As a result of a predominant monitoring activity, the operators lean back in their chair, stretching their feet far forward under the table.
During the construction of the Stratos X11 this was taken into account. Leg and foot space is maintained in accordance with DIN EN 527-1:2011.
