Construction

The workstation housing is made of steel sheets with a powder coating enamel which is very resistant to abrasion and disinfectants. The worktop is made of first-class stainless steel with a uniform non-reflective matt surface. The side walls of the workspace are glazed in full profile, which increases light level and working comfort. The lighting of the working space is provided by LED lighting with high luminosity. To set the ideal lighting comfort, it is recommended to add a continuous regulation of light intensity 0-100% (optional). 

During the design, special attention was paid to technical details, a modern user-friendly interface, a design suitable for laboratories and clean rooms according to EN ISO 14644 clean room technology and GMP standards. Practically it means a smooth design, without sharp edges, minimizing joints, easy cleaning and decontamination, high IP protection in the workspace and other improvements.

The FBB is powered by a high-quality, powerful fan with an energy-saving electronically controlled EC motor. High quality components ensure maintenance-free operation. Compared to standard AC motors, consumption is up to 70% lower. Maximum environmental friendliness is supported by the possibility of using the reduce mode. The fan makes it possible to maintain the required air flow rate with high accuracy over a long period of time, despite the gradual clogging of the filter, and thus make optimal use of its service life.

Air filtration is provided by high-efficiency HEPA filters, class H14 according to EN1822, with an filtration efficiency of 99.999%. The filters have a metal frame, quality seals and a protective grille. The control system continuously monitors their pressure loss. The system is equipped with notification system with two notification levels - warning and action. Warning level means that the HEPA filters would be replaced soon, so it is time to order the filter replacement. Action limit is activated when the filters are clogged and must be replaced immediately. In case the workstation is connected to the Internet, the control system will inform also supervisor and service engineer by email or by push notification to their mobile phone.

The workstation stand has a robust and solid construction made of powder-coated steel, in the same color as the workstation it self, with high resistance to abrasion and disinfectants. The stand has adjustable feet for the possibility of rectifying the unevenness of the surface in the laboratory. To minimize the transmission of vibrations, the stand is equipped with anti-vibration inserts. Thanks to the solid construction and use of anti-vibration inserts, vibration is minimal and significantly contributes to work comfort during vibration-sensitive operations. 

The working space is equipped with electrical socket 220 V / 50Hz. 

The FBB cabinet works fully automatically according to the set mode. After selecting the mode, the CR2000 control system automatically sets the target parameters of the workstation for the given activity: idle state, operating and reduce mode. The mode is selected via the touch screen or remotely. The system is protected against access by unauthorized persons. The control is user-friendly and clear. A huge advantage is the unification of the control system of all LABOX workstations. Both in terms of service and service and possible training.

Deviations from safe values are signaled both locally acoustically and optically, and are sent to email and / or mobile phone. All settings are made using the large, clear, touch screen of the CR2000 control system. The main page contains information on the operation status of the cabinet, such as the selected mode, current parameters, possible alarm messages with a detailed explanation, and controls for accessories. 

Great emphasis is placed on safety. The cabinet, in addition to standard safety elements, is also equipped with a circuit breaker.

Control and management by SMART CR2000

The control and management of the workstation is provided by the state of the art CR2000 smart control system. This system ensures trouble-free operation of the device in 24/7 mode. Control is possible both through the large touch screen and using mobile devices and PC. The touch screen with IPS technology reacts even through laboratory gloves. The display shows all important parameters and states. The speed of the air flow in the working space, temperature in the working space (optional), pressure drop on the filter. These signals are processed by a microprocessor unit, which optimizes the performance of the device accordingly. User interface is intuitive. The control system allows the setting of timers for switching the device on and off, including the selection of the operating mode. Changing alarm settings, timers and other parameters and functions are user-adjustable.

Further information

CONNECTIVITY

The workstation can be connected to the Internet. This state-of-the-art feature brings freedom of control, time management and significant savings.

REMOTE CONTROL

Trained users, supervisors and others can be granted remote access. This feature brings another level to complete control of the workstation. In addition to controlling the UV-C lamp, etc., you no longer have to wait for the workstation parameters to stabilize. This includes special accessories such as the heating surface. E.g. with a remote-controlled heating surface, you can save more than 40 minutes.

In the case of a remote connection, the local operator sees all operations performed remotely. This is also successfully used for training, certain service tasks, firmware updates and more.

ALARMS AND PUSH NOTIFICATION NOTICE

Early notification of non-standard operating conditions, service requirements such as filter replacement, impending need for revalidation, maintenance and more. The feature is available for smart devices running Android and Apple iOS.

REMOTE SERVICE SUPPORT

Arranging a remote service support service is available for all workstations controlled by the CR2000 control system, ie FBB, MBB, and others. This service includes remote consultations, advice, if necessary setting parameters, remote check of technical condition, continuous control of critical equipment parameters, such as pressure loss on the filter, etc. The service center is automatically informed about the technical condition of the equipment. It automatically accepts requests for the impending need for filter replacement, validation, etc. Thanks to the remote connection, the utility value of the workstations is significantly increased and the need and time of service interventions is reduced, and the resulting significant reduction in operating costs.

CENTRAL SUPERVISION CENTER (OPTIONAL)

Workstations with CR2000 control can be monitored using a comprehensive monitoring system. Monitoring software can be run on PC with Windows system. One installation can monitor up to 50 workstations. It brings all important information about the status of all installed devices and their main parameters on one screen in real time. In addition to the main physical parameters, such as speed in the work area, pressure drop, temperature, etc., it also displays a status bar for each workstation individually. The status bar is very useful because it provides detailed information about the status, but also describes any non-standard conditions, recommends the replacement of filters, and monitors important service / validation periods.

It is possible to connect to each monitored workstation remotely, if necessary. The operator in the control center sees what the end user sees. The end user is informed of this connection in the status bar.

This system provides an absolute overview of workstations. Combined with remote service support, this is the ultimate solution that saves time, minimizes uncontrolled workstation downtime and thus significantly saves operating costs.
