EEU, short for Electrical Engineering Unlimited, was established in 1991. Since inception EEU has been the consultant / contractor on engineering and ergonomic issues relating to various 24/7 control rooms and control suites. EEU’s past clients include Sasol, Petro SA, ABSA, Eskom, Anglo Gold, ABB, Foskor, Samancor, PMC, Caltex, Botswana Electrical, NECSA and Infraco.
In 1998 Talvision, a division of Taltronics was established and from January 2010, Talvision was restructured under the new name of EEU Taltronics (PTY) Ltd concentrates solely on the Control Room and innovative visual engineering environments.
Since 1998 the most notable achievements in regards to turnkey REAR PROJECTION projects that are driving the control rooms of major corporations includes Telkom, Eskom, Vodacom, MTN, Cell C, Transnet Pipelines (NMPP) and SITA in the South African market.
Our first project in South Africa was the installation of a 5 x 6 (30 modules) 50” system for Vodacom SA in Bellville Cape Town.
One of the first Mitsubishi Electric LED DLP Rear Projection systems were installed at Cell C in their NOC in Marion Place Sandton configured from 11 x 2 (22 x 67″ LED DLP SXGA+) cubes manged with a Catalyst 4000 Video Wall Controller from Jupiter Systems. This existing system were moved after approximately 14 months to the new Cell C campus in Woodmead. Within the new facility, two main supporting pillars had been placed in the center of the room where they would have interrupted the view of the video wall in its existing 2 x 11 format. Furthermore, it had become clear during the initial installation that more pixel “real estate” would be required to accommodate all the data that Cell C now needed to display on the screen.To overcome both these problems, EEU Taltronics proposed adding an additional eight cubes to the system, bringing the total to 30, and dividing the screen into two 3 x 5 displays that would provide a far more aesthetically appealing solution.
EEU Taltronics also installed another large LED DLP Rear Projection system configuration of 15 x 2 (30 x 67″ LED DLP SXGA+) Front Maintenance cubes for SITA (State Information Technology Agency) located in Centurion. Content managment were made possible with a Catalyst 4000 Video Wall Controller from Jupiter Systems.
One of our biggest installations in South Africa is the Transnet Pipelines (NMPP) system. System reliability was of paramount importance. Taltronics chose a combination of 60” and 70” Mitsubishi Electric 120 Series LED DLP cubes and Jupiter controllers; a system of proven long-term reliability. Two Video Wall systems made up of 8 x 3 (24 x 70″ LED DLP FullHD) each were installed to make up a total of 48 cubes. Each of the two main Video Walls are managed by a Catalyst 4000 Video Wall controller. A third, general information Video Wall, were installed comprising of a 3 x 2 (6 x 60″ LED DLP FullHD) system configuration managed by a Catalyst 4500H Video Wall Controller from Jupiter Systems.
We have vast experience of designing industrial 24/7 control rooms using sound engineering and ergonomic principles. We’ve also supplied, installed and commissioned many large screen DLP / LCD displays together with the associated video wall controllers within various control room projects covering the following areas:
- Electrical and Water Utilities control
- Telecommunication network operations
- Security, Surveillance and Emergency control
- Petro-chemical process control
- Banking security and network supervision
- Emergencies and Metro services
- Mining industry
EEU Taltronics (PTY) Ltd is the sole agents for Mitsubishi Electric’s range of Display Engineering products, and represents Jupiter Systems USA on their complete range of video wall controllers and display solutions products.
