Photo 12 | JST workstations: Integrated into the Roche control room, but separated by a room divider - even the special workstation from which the electrical supply network is monitored is equipped with a Stratos CommandDesk that can be height-adjusted by electric motor.
Photo 13 | JST AlarmLight: In the Penzberg control room, acoustic signals are largely dispensed with in favor of a quiet and concentrated working atmosphere - an excellent alternative: the JST AlarmLight, which alerts employees to incoming faults by using of pre-defined color signals.
Photo 15 | JST Furniture: Belong in every future-oriented control center – back-friendly desks. The height adjustment of the Stratos X11 OperatorDesk up to standing height allows an alternating posture and avoids damage to health.
Photo 16 | JST monitor articulated arms: The workstation monitors are attached to the OperatorDesks with height-adjustable 3D articulated arms. They allow an optimal and individually adjustable viewing angle on all displays through a parabolic arrangement.
Photo 17 | JST Operator desk: The special Stratos X11 OperatorDesks are equipped with inspection flaps for spacious supply rooms. ... there is room for a large amount of cables and technical components - a special feature that standard work tables do not offer.
Photo 19 | JST CommandBox: Behind the keyboard you can clearly see the CommandPad integrated in the worktop - in case of incoming faults the buttons light up in color and the alarms can be acknowledged directly by the operator.
Photo 20 | JST Command-Box: The buttons in the CommandPad ensure fast and reliable processing of alarms.
Photo 21 | JST Furniture: An important criterion for those in charge of the control room: The entire furnishing should be "from a single source". For this reason, the various special cabinets are also made by the JST control room professionals.
Photo 22 | JST Furniture: Headset and mobile phone charging stations were integrated into the special cabinets - so everything has its place.
Photo 23 | JST Furniture: Directly behind the Operator workstation is sufficient storage space in the sideboards. The rear of the special cabinets with Personality-Cases was also perfectly used here as a room divider.
Photo 24 | JST Design: The demand for a modern control room look can be seen in every detail at JST - here high-quality stainless steel handles for sliding doors.
Photo 25 | JST Furniture: Special solutions are one of the strengths of JST, especially when it comes to customer requirements for furniture. Here for example special wall cabinets withpersonality cases for the employees.
Photo 26 | JST Furniture: The ideal solution for shift operation: The individual personality cases for the employees are lockable.
Photo 27 | JST DisplayRack: The displays can be continuously moved and fixed vertically and horizontally. With the JST DisplayRack individual and safe positioning of the displays, without disturbing joints, next to each other and on top of each other is possible.
Photo 28 | JST DisplayRack: The entire display wall can easily be pulled forward. The Large screen wall – consisting of 8 x 46" displays - is equipped with a middle stand on wheels for stability reasons
Photo 29 | JST Displays: Due to the LC Displays of the Slim-Line series that JST uses, a picture can be displayed very large and frame-spanning as a big-picture over many displays. The narrow frames are not perceived as disturbing, as the picture-to-picture distance is only about three centimeters.
Photo 30 | JST MultiConsoling®: With the myGUI user interface the large screen starts at the workplace. With MultiConsoling® not only large screens are controlled, but also the monitors at the workstation are switched with all signals (keyboard/mouse/monitor/audio) in real time.
Photo 31 | JST Technology: Less heat, no noise pollution: The entire technology including all workstation computers was relocated to an external room. Here: the JST-PowerUnit with the underlying grabbers.
Photo 33 | JST MultiConsoling®: Is needed to switch computers, cameras etc. in real time to the large screen wall and the workstations - the MultiCenter (device on top) is the control center of all signals.
New control room creates optimum working conditions
As one of the largest biotechnology centers in Europe and an innovative competence center for life sciences in the greater Munich area, the Penzberg plant of the pharmaceuticals and diagnostics group Roche has recorded steady growth in recent years. The energy supply system and its control center were of course not unaffected by this. This was reason enough to set up a completely new control center for optimal control of the entire plant supply in addition to the necessary expansion of the plant park. A perfect requirement for the control room specialists of Jungmann Systemtechnik – JST.
Monitoring the 120 or so power generation plants and networks, controlling the entire power supply network and, in addition, processing fault reports from all the plant’s operations with almost 6,000 employees – the tasks of energy supply at Roche in Penzberg are many and varied. However, the previous premises had reached their limits with the current demands on technology and ergonomics. For this reason, a new control center was integrated into a new building required for further energy plants.
Environment enables highly concentrated work
Günter Latzko, plant manager for energy supply, puts it in a nutshell: “The workplaces of the shift workers no longer met the current standards for the design of control rooms”. His wish: An environment that makes “highly concentrated work” possible and meets the increased requirements. To achieve these goals, the Roche managers have brought on board the experts from JST.

Specialists convince with comprehensive planning
After initial contacts during ko:mon congress and a joint workshop, in which the employees of the control room were also involved, it soon became clear: The Jungmann team is the ideal partner for the upcoming tasks. As part of an extensive planning package including lighting design with circadian lighting and a complete visualization of the future control room with realistic 3D images, the control room specialists were able to convince in a tendering process.

MultiConsoling® makes operation child's play
The technical highlights of the new control room today include a proactive large screen wall with a total of eight 46 inch Displays, which are optimized for 24/7 operation. The adjacent meeting room, which was equipped with the Allmedia conference table system from JST, also features a 70-inch wall display, which, like the large screen wall in the control room, is controlled via JST-MultiConsoling®. A technology with which it is possible to display any sources (computers, cameras, etc.) in real time on workstation monitors, on individual large-screen displays or as BigPicture across several large-screen displays. Only one mouse and keyboard are needed per workstation to operate everything in real time.
JST control room equipment: After the implementation of the control room it becomes clear: The previously expressed wish for a uniform appearance could be fulfilled without compromise.
Alarms are processed quickly and directly
Another special feature: so-called CommandPads are embedded in the desks of the control room, which are controlled via the JST CommandBox. In the event of faults, the buttons light up in color and the operator responsible can acknowledge the incoming alarm directly.
"This looks just like the starship Enterprise"
But besides all the technical innovations that Jungmann Systemtechnik has realized in Penzberg, the visual appearance of the new control room also played a not insignificant role for plant manager Günter Latzko and his team. “We wanted to maintain a uniform design and avoid visual breaks at all costs.” Today, the ergonomic Stratos operator desks and the entire surrounding furniture form a harmonious picture that inspires even groups of visitors to make enthusiastic statements such as “that looks like the one on the Starship Enterprise”.
With professional work to optimal conditions
For Günter Latzko, one thing is certain: ” Ideal working conditions have been created here. Spatial confinement and noise pollution are a thing of the past.” The plant manager evaluates the work of Jungmann Systemtechnik as “very professional” and is pleased that the new control room “is really very well received internally and externally.”
