Wireworks LumaVue Panels Illuminate Aerospace Corporation's Stars Launch Room

December 8th, 2009 EL SEGUNDO, CA – Wireworks best-selling LumaVue Custom Panels rise to the occasion for the STARS Launch Room at the Aerospace Corporations’ Launch Operations Center, a federally funded research and development center for the United States Air Force and the National Reconnaissance Office that provides information on launch vehicles, satellite systems, ground control systems, and space technology.

Located on the control consoles, which were manufactured and installed by Premier Enclosure Systems (PES), a 40-year-old Southern California-based company that manufactures high quality enclosures, including modified standard, custom and NEMA special designs, Wireworks LumaVue offers an easy to-read back-lit interface panel that complements the state-of-the-art technology upgrades performed by PES for the Aerospace Corporation. Wireworks LumaVue Custom Panels offer several, easy-to-access connections directly on the control console. These include a headset jack, an Ethernet network port, a USB interface to the computer that sits below the console and a task light dimmer switch.

“Wireworks LumaVue panels look great in our facility,” says Bruce Mau, senior STARS project leader at Aerospace Corporation. “We are receiving excellent feedback from all levels within our organization – from admirals to generals to space engineers – who all think it looks fantastic. During take-off, the room is pitch black and the only things that can be seen are the large display screen and the LumaVue panels. This helps our operators connect easily into the panel even when the lights are off.”

The Aerospace Corporation has monitored every national security launch with the help of a one-of-a-kind technology unique to the launch industry — STARS, or the Spacelift Telemetry Acquisition and Reporting System. STARS is a launch data-processing and monitoring system developed by Aerospace and is now a critical mission assurance tool used to certify the readiness of every national security space launch. STARS makes it possible to monitor each launch remotely in real time, and offers a common platform for data analysis across all launch vehicles.

Ideal for a wide range of applications, Wireworks new, first-to-market LumaVue Custom Panels and Plates can be rear illuminated for instant identification and are the perfect solution for use in a wide range of locations where there is limited visibility. Since each panel is custom-made, design possibilities are unlimited, allowing for virtually any wording, numbering, identification, diagram, symbol, graphic and corporate logo to be permanently imprinted.

Panels are rear-engraved using Wireworks computer integrated manufacturing engraving system so markings cannot be marred or destroyed. The engraving is readable and visible on its own, even without rear illumination. The panels will not rust or tarnish and are offered in 10 high-impact colors to match or contrast the venue’s décor. Panels are available with a gloss or matte finish.

In addition to connection and switch panels, LumaVue Custom Panels and Plates can be used for diagrams of any kind, providing maximum electrical isolation between connectors. Available in a variety of sizes and shapes, including standard gang plates, wall plates and rack panels, LumaVue is suitable for interface panels of any kind. LumaVue is manufactured in 1/8″ or 1/4″ thickness to meet any design requirement. UV stabilized for outdoor use, Wireworks LumaVue features a non-metallic cell-cast acrylic coating for maximum durability.
