Elevating elevator safety
23 January 2013
Memco's Elite elevator safety systems are to be installed in 74 elevators at Indira Gandhi International Airport's new Terminal 3 in New Delhi. They will be fitted to elevator doors supplied by ThyssenKrupp Elevator.
The systems feature two independent detection systems. The first is a light curtain of infrared beams criss-crossing the elevator car's doors; the second is a 3D proximity detection system in the landing zone. Any person or large object breaking the light curtain or detected within the 3D zone triggers a system which automatically reopens the elevator doors.
The combined system consists of a transmitter detector and receiver detector mounted on the car doors.
Each is housed in a robust profile just 9.8mm wide. They automatically sense door separation and adjust for optimum performance. In many installations a separate controller is unnecessary.
Elite features the latest software as standard, including power reduction and timeout features, and can be fitted to virtually any new or existing elevators.
