The SMUF Clone at SFOG has a slightly different panel setup, mainly because of the dual loading platforms. The train controls are located on the secondary panels on the loading side of each platform. The secondary panels also have a dispatch button at the bottom right and an e-stop button at the top left.

The main panel has the touch screen in the middle, with 2 e-stop buttons at the top, on both sides of the screen - (and I still dont know why they needed 2) .There are 4 dispatch buttons (2 for each platform) positioned to where you have to use 2 hands to dispatch a train. The panel was modified after the 1st year as the dispatch buttons were considered 'unsafe' since one hand could be used to dispatch a train (one button per platforn was on the corresponding side of the panel, with the other technically right above it on the face of the panel). The modification moved the buttons to the top of the panel face.

I hope that made sense. :lmao:

Anyone can identify the manufacture of these buttons/switches used on these panels?
Ride STOP button on Mad Tea Party and E-STOP on Whirlpool is Allen Bradley made but I don't think other buttons are AB made
Please help me....

While it's not a real panel (yet), this is a preliminary version of the panel layout for the backyard coaster that I plan to build in the mid-to-distant future. Based off of the more recent Consign panels on B&M rides. While I may be a controls system engineer, I don't really have much say in the final designs, as that is usually up to the customer and the engineering manager. I have wanted to build a backyard coaster since I was a kid, and now that I have gained a lot of engineering experience (though not from any ride manufacturers), I am going all out on this project. Wont share much about it here, as it is not the correct thread, but will definitely share updates on the panel here!
Panel Layout.PNG
Panel is a Saginaw SCE-464919SDC Operator Desk Console. Most Buttons are Eaton, but some will be AB (ie. Key Switches on left side). Touch Screen is an EZ Automation 10" display.
