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.
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.
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
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.
Here’s a selection of the many comments we have had from our migration clients
Large Asset Fund Company, More London
“I think Senseco Systems have performed extremely well. The project team have been great, and together they have worked to ensure that all angles have been covered, and any risk has been mitigated as much as possible. The project itself has been considerably smoother than I anticipated and we haven’t had any issues that have resulted in any disruption to the business. The system operation is much easier, and the speed in which it functions has also been a strong positive over the previous system. In summary, I personally am pleased that we opted via the tender process to award the contract to Senseco. The whole process from start to finish has been first class, and should I ever have to do this again then I would have no hesitation in calling Senseco”.
Financial Company, Moorgate, London
“Senseco won the bid and all of our panel agreed they were head and shoulders above the competition they showed a deep understanding of the product and communicated this to the project board. They carried out the work during the evening and into the small hours it is testimony to their work that after our first email to all staff in the building we did not need to communicate anymore until the testing phase of the fit out we had no complaints from any staff Senseco communicated with me prior to starting any new phases they worked well with our resident engineer the whole process was seamless from start to finish our opinion of Senseco is they are a very professional outfit.”
Investment Company, Carlton Terrace
“Due to our fire panel coming to end of life we contacted Senseco our incumbent supplier who walked us through the options and in detail how it would be changed, training provided and without putting ourselves at risk with no alarm system. The service was excellent and we are very happy with the end product”.
