The Z-Control of the latest generation by ZIEGLER was nominated for the UX Design Awards in the category "Product" of the year 2020. The UX Design Awards are a global competition for user and customer experience, organized by the International Design Center Berlin (IDZ). The list of previous winners resembles a "Who is Who" of the industry. The intuitive and user-guided operating concept Z-Control by ZIEGLER is the central element of every firefighting vehicle and the basis of a successful operation. Ease of handling "Above all, the challenges in this project was to design the operation for all users in a way that it is correctly understood in emergency situations. The operation has to work flawlessly at any time of day or night, in different weather conditions and under the known difficult conditions such as enormous time pressure, stress and in personal protective clothing. The operating sequence should be self-explanatory so that even untrained persons can handle it." "In addition, the operation should be easy to understand and error-free for all generations of emergency personnel from 16 to 65 years of age, volunteer and professional firefighters, procurement managers, emergency control centers, trainers, service and sales personnel worldwide," said Max Ruhdorfer, when asked what the special challenges of the project were especially concerning user experience.
