AMTS Academy for Medical Training and Simulation in Lucerne, Switzerland
Medical education in an environment offering optimized safety
The Academy for Medical Training and Simulation (AMTS) in Lucerne, provides continuing medical education for physicians from all over Europe. The high-tech center offers state-of-the-art facilities and equipment for surgery and emergency management courses.
The Academy for Medical Training and Simulation (AMTS) in Lucerne requires uninterrupted operation of its training and simulation center without compromising the safety of visitors and employees and the security of the infrastructure. Protection with unmatched reliability which supports all functions crucial to AMTS was needed. AMTS’ investments have to be protected with superior detector technology which avoids false alarms, fire control panels with intuitive user interfaces, intelligent signal processing, and full network connectivity. Further important criteria were the flexibility of the system and the integration of the protection system into the existing monitoring system. Fire safety has top priority. “We have a variety of rooms with sensitive and expensive equipment that require extra protection. For this reason, we chose a fire safety solution from Siemens,” says CEO Roger Zobrist.
AMTS uses the Sinteso™ fire protection system from Siemens to protect people and assets. It is based on a modular and future-proof technology platform that employs detectors with unparalleled immunity to deception. The FC2060 fire control panel deployed at AMTS has four loops which support up to 512 field devices. In addition, it can be upgraded with additional modules to support up to 1,512field devices. Existing detectors can beadded quickly thanks to auto configuration and auto addressing; existing controls of fire protection doors, extinguishing systems, elevators, and ventilation systems can be integrated easily via I/O modules. In applications characterized by a medium level of risk and a moderate potential for deceptive phenomena, as is the case at AMTS in Lucerne, the high-performance Sinteso fire detectors come into their own. Approximately 400 intelligent neural fire detectors distributed throughout the entire Academy detect and analyze optical and thermal signals separately.
