The room is composed of many types of machinery and shelves scattered about the room. The power control panel located at the top left side of this room is mainly use to route the power toward areas that are insufficient, using the five switches.
In Resident Evil 2, a green herb can be located immediately by going toward the left of the room, while the map for the B1F east hall can be found inside a shelves along with handgun ammo. The power control panel up front can be operate to route the power, which can switch "on" the card reader at the weapon storage thus enabling a card to be read. To do this however, either Leon or Claire must operate the five switches up and down. The power supply must be rearrange with perfect balance otherwise operation is failed. The correct method is first two switches up the next two switches down and the finals switch up (up up down down up)
