Vingtor-Stentofon in new Carlos De Amberes Museum
Carlos de Amberes Foundation is the realization of a wish revealed by a Flemish man that arrived in Madrid in 1594 with all his fortune. He found this institution, and four hundred and twenty years after it is the oldest foundation in Europe still functioning.
Ready to enter 21st century, the museum keeps the historic links among the European territories that were part of the Spanish monarchy during the 16th and 17th centuries. It co-operates in all kinds of initiative between Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg and Northern France – through the adventure of building a great common space: The United Europe.
After having renovated its original healthcare role for a philanthropic-cultural one, The King and Queen; Juan Carlos and Sofia, in the presence of King Balduino and Queen Fabiola of the Belgians, inaugurated its expanded and renovated head place in 1992. In November 2014, King Felipe VI, actual president of the foundation’s board of trustees, opened the Carlos de Amberes Museum in Madrid, dedicated to the Flemish and Dutch art of 16th and 17th centuries.
The museum has incorporated a brand new Vingtor-Stentofon IP intercom system with an IP native AlphaCom XE1 server (capable of managing up to 552 stations needing no other hardware than its AMC-11 processor board), giving service to a number of Turbine TCIS-2 (steel front plate) IP substations, TCIS-3 (black thermoplastic front) and video substations with IP camera (Vingtor-Stentofon 141110100). These are placed in several access sites to the museum, shop, outer and internal courtyards.
All calls from access points are answered from a central control room equipped with IP desktop stations with 3,5” touchscreen video display and handset (ref. 1408001635) in which the images from the camera stations can be viewed as soon as the call is activated. The doors can also be opened from the desktop station itself. The AlphaCom XE1 server constantly monitors the correct operation of all the stations in the system immediately reporting any failure to the control center.
