The test laboratory in Aarhus, a project of GH Connect, LOYTEC Competence Center in Scandinavia, is a showcase project in many ways. Even though the project was finished in record time, taking only 10 weeks from ground zero to starting operation, there were no compromises made. Keeping laboratory and maintenance personnel as safe as possible is the top priority and the result was choosing LOYTEC technology.
Controlled via web-browser
The test laboratory is located in Aarhus in the middle of Jutland and controlled remotely from a web-browser in Copenhagen (~250 km distance). Via the LOYTEC L-IOB I/O Controller and the LTE-800 Interface, important status indicators can be monitored at any time. Detailed reports make tasks and workflows visible and help to avoid downtime and associated maintenance time - especially critical in test laboratories in the healthcare industry in general.
LOYTEC controls enable the following features:
- Monitoring room conditions (temperature and pressure)
- Monitoring large numbers of refrigerators and freezers (temperature)
- Automatic doors (operation and interlock)
- Monitoring and controlling HVAC
- Monitoring heat/cooling pumps
- Monitoring fan coils
- Monitoring emergency power generators
- Alarming and logging in general
Diagnosing problems and fixing them remotely
Parameters such as temperature, humidity and air circulation – controlled and monitored centrally – affect the spread of pathogens in the air. Therefore, building automation can help protect against infection and increase the safety of the lab facility's personnel considerably. Rooms with negative pressure isolate contaminated air until a controlled discharge is performed.
The test laboratory is a showcase project for energy efficient operation of a building and also the creation of a workplace that is both ecologically responsible and adheres to rigorous safety standards for your employees.
