Monitoring and controlling large-scale industrial facilities often takes place within some form of control room. These control rooms can be integrated within the main structure of the facility or exist as standalone units dedicated solely to this purpose. In energy production facilities, for instance, the control room often takes the form of a standalone unit situated near a gas turbine. Within the control room, power distribution is coordinated, turbine operations are regulated, and meticulous monitoring occurs.
Standalone control rooms find utility across various facility types, with common areas including the oil and gas industry as well as power generation.

A standalone control room goes by various designations and adheres to diverse requirements. Some clients refer to it as a "Local Equipment Room" (LER), while others prefer the term "Power Control Module" (PCM), despite the same fundamental function. Essentially, the control room represents a distinct building that unifies all processes critical to the facility's operation. Here, Motor Control Centers (MCCs) facilitate power distribution to the facility's motors and consumers. Control cabinets and apparatus cabinets contribute to process regulation, while battery systems and auxiliary power strengthen emergency and safety systems. The specifics depend on the specific process and facility in question. Different facilities may demand different features, but ultimately, the requirements for control rooms converge in their commitment to creating a secure, comfortable, and reliable working environment for operators. This holds true regardless of whether the facility endures extreme climates, is located in an earthquake-prone area, or faces the risk of gas-related explosions.
