The handling of toxic and highly active substances, the use of hydrogen peroxide as a disinfectant or the risk of dust explosions all contribute to a greater fire risk. Cleanroom solutions from Siemens offer you maximum protection against these hazards.
Thanks to intelligent ASAtechnology, Sinteso™ S-LINE fire detectors provide exceptionally precise and rapid fire detection and alarming. If air flows or air conditioning and ventilation systems prevent smoke from reaching the fire detectors, aspirating smoke detectors ensure earliest possible detection.
Emergency Voice Communication
In case of an event, the intelligent evacuation systems from Siemens ensure clear voice announcements with description of the emergency situation and clear instructions on how to proceed for quick and orderly evacuation of the danger area – and prevent outbreak of panic.
Long-term safety, security and successful production can be achieved only when you reliably protect your personnel and valuable production assets. Cleanroom environments require technical protective measures at the highest level. Personnel protection with precise control and monitoring of air flow volumes, control of air pressure differential zones. Integrated access control systems and video surveillance to control access and avoid cross contamination risks are just some of the solutions offered to ensure a safe and secure working environment.
The video surveillance system monitors sensitive areas and records the processes before and after an event. If the system detects a critical deviation, such as unauthorized persons, it automatically transmits an alarm to the control center and activates the camera in the relevant area.
Our access control solutions provide a centralized recording of user activities and a clear overview of all persons present. In real time, they combine information from the access control server, personnel files, plant and maintenance data as well as access history before deciding if a person is allowed to access a certain area at a certain time.
Modern security systems must satisfy a broad range of security requirements and allow installation in a variety of configurations. By combining intrusion detection systems with other security disciplines such as video surveillance or access control, we help you to increase your security while at the same time saving costs.
Cross contamination prevention
By controlling and managing physical access to restricted zones such as clean rooms and sensitive production areas, cross-contamination prevention solutions from Siemens help customers follow adequate predefined procedures and minimize the risk of cross-contamination by people, processes, facilities and equipment.
Heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems account for up to 70% of the total energy costs for cleanrooms. Consequently, the only way to lower energy costs is to continuously monitor and optimize these systems. Our solutions provide such functions as the control of air exchange rates based on various factors like room usage or particle concentration, the detection of necessary underpressure or overpressure and dynamic adaptation of the control processes.
Airlock interlocking system (AIS)
The entire airlock control system operates autonomously and can be quickly and flexibly adapted to individual requirements. Integration additionally enables features such as locking by the gas detection technology and dynamic adjustment of purge times. Integrated access control reliably controls people flow.
Exact, modulating magnetic valves for drop-by-drop precise control, room pressure and volume flow controls as well as calibrated humidity and temperature sensors are just a few examples. High product quality and reliability are combined with highest possible energy efficiency when operating a building’s largest energy consumers.
Only buildings with highly integrated building automation systems can qualify for energy efficiency class A. The integrated solutions from Siemens offer the best platform for achieving this distinction because the demand-driven adjustment of light and shadow is a basic component of our cleanroom concepts.
Environment monitoring with CMT
Compact Monitoring Technology (CMT) reliably monitors room conditions and particles in critical environments. A preconfigured control cabinet contains all the components necessary for data acquisition, visualization and archiving. Operation is done via an integrated touch panel or networked PC. Additionally, linking to an airlock control system or presence detectors, for example, is also possible. CMT ensures compliance with Electronic Record regulations like FDA 21 CFR Part 11 or EU GMP Annex 11.
ISO cleanroom standards for ISO Class 2 through 9 as well as the ASHRAE Clean Spaces Technical Committee outline particle measurement requirements. The integrated solution from Siemens not only permits simple monitoring and analysis of measured values from all channels, but also uses the information to dynamically adjust air flow rates and thus substantially reduce energy costs.
