Title Nuclear power plants - Control rooms - Application of visual display units (VDUs)
Project Number 23236
Abstract/Scope IEC 61772:2009 supplements IEC 60964 and presents design requirements for the application of VDUs in main control rooms of nuclear power plants. Assists the designer in specifying VDU applications including displays on individual workstations and larger displays for group-working or distant viewing. The main technical changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: - expand the previous text to cover the use of large screen displays, to provide improved recommendations on the use of colour, and to improve the coverage of back-fit or upgrade applications; - present examples of good practice.
