Emergency telephone lifts standards
23 January 2013
Memco's Memcom elevator emergency telephone has achieved certification by the TÃœV AUSTRIA Group. One of Europe's leading certification bodies, the TÃœV AUSTRIA Group is a fully independent institution providing testing,
The Memcom was tested in collaboration with the Ã–WD, the largest service centre for elevator emergency calls in Austria. As part of the certification process Memco's ETR software was installed to monitor EN81-28 test calls and technical calls to check the battery, microphone and loudspeaker. Pressing the emergency button in the elevator cabin automatically connected the phone to the Ã–WD service centre. A pre-recorded location message then identified the elevator location, allowing the call handler to effect a rescue.
