Case Study

Siemens Migration

There are many Siemens “legacy” systems in the marketplace, such as AlgoRex / CT11. These systems are now becoming obsolete with parts in short supply and in many cases with no replacement parts available.  So while the systems are known for their reliability and capability, they need to be replaced or upgraded.

As an approved and trained Siemens Solution Partner, Senseco has the expertise and experience to carry out system migrations from an older system to the modern Cerberus PRO.  System migration means there is minimal disruption and lower costs compared to replacing the entire system.  And because it’s an open protocol system, you’ll have a choice of companies to maintain it.

We have carried out many successful Siemens migrations ranging from corporate offices, manufacturing facilities, hotels and hospitals.


The Challenge

Many AlgoRex systems are large, networked systems with complex cause and effects functions.  It is important to capture all existing operational information to ensure a changeover can be achieved with minimal disruption to the operation of the site.

We initially pre-programme the new panels with the system configuration on demonstration boards in our office. We give our clients the chance to see this working and sign it off before we bring the panels to site. We then swap the old panels for the new ones onsite, and these will run all existing field devices.  Next, we change the devices, one loop at a time, until the full system has been upgraded.

A migration allows your existing infrastructure to be used and the work to be carried out in phases, keeping disruption to a minimum and spreading the cost.

The Solution

Our projects team have vast experience and a proven method of migrating Siemens AlgoRex systems to Siemens Cerberus systems on live working sites with minimal disruption.  Our engineers have been fully trained on the Cerberus PRO fire alarm system to ensure all functionality is correctly programmed.

The Cerberus PRO system provides fast, reliable fire detection, alarm signalling and control, combining smart technology with a number of safety features. It has very flexible programming, making it suitable for the most complex of sites, while at the same time it’s easy to use. Click here to find out more

Plus, many of our migration clients have chosen to upgrade to ASA (Advanced Signal Analysis) devices, and we have provided our FAITH (False Alarm Immune Technology Harnessed) guarantee, which is our written guarantee against false alarms. Click here to find out more

The Result

Our clients have been delighted with the results of our migration projects.  Many amazed at how we can be in and out on site almost unnoticed other than leaving them with a modern supportable fire alarm system.
