State Fair Fountains Roar Each Night at 8 p.m.

October 9, 2009

The State Fair of Texas is in full gear, and the new fountain show is in full effect every night at 8 p.m. Greenscape was the designer of the fountain show, with Innovative Automation‘s UL508A panel shop working with Greenscape in the background, manufacturing the control panels that drive the fountain show. Pretty awesome. The show takes place between the two auto show buildings, just north of the Hall of State building.

Fair Park Geyser Draws Attention from Freeway, Helicopter

August 21, 2009

Innovative’s Adam Ring and Jason Scott were over at the Dallas Fair Park fountain project earlier in the week when the crew fired up the giant geyser, which reaches an estimated 40-50 feet. Plan is to have this project done in time for State Fair of Texas, but with all of the rain this summer, it will be cutting it close.

geyserThis particular fountain has more than 240 individual jets powered by 22 seperate 50HP pumps. The geyser has four jets each powered by its own 20HP pump. When finished, State Fair spectators will be treated to a fountain display that is choreographed to tantalizing music scores, preferrably some John Philip Sousa tunes.

Innovative Automation built all of the control panels for the project at its UL508A control panel electrical shop.

When the geyser fired up, it was visible from nearby I-30 and drew the interest of a traffic/news helicopter in the area, who might have though it was a catastrophic water main break.

greenscape1It took about a mile of wire, a heck of a lot of labeling and programming, and hours and hours of weekend and overtime, but this project from Innovative Automation’s UL508A panel shop again will deliver on time.

Dallas Fair Park, home of the State Fair of Texas, will never be the same after this control panel is installed.

This panel, in conjunction with several others built right here at Innovative Automation’s UL508A control panel shop, will control a new set of water fountains that pulse and spurt to music and lighting.

It was a team effort making this project a reality, including lots of help and support from the customer, the main team of (l to r) Jason Scott, Brad Swift, Adam Ring and Chris Coler made sure it was delivered ON TIME and BUILT CORRECT.
