Home Elevator Remote-Monitoring Feature

A new home elevator remote-monitoring feature from Cambridge Elevating Inc. allows the elevator contractor to view the status of clients’ elevators and receive updates and email notifications of system events in real time. The feature comes standard on all new home elevators with the BES-3 electrical system. Set for release in early 2018, the next-generation release will be field retrofittable and compatible with previous-generation BES-1 and -2 systems. Cambridge states the feature allows contractors to provide proactive customer service, minimize elevator downtime and manage technicians’ schedules. Users can monitor systems from any smartphone, tablet or computer.

Online Design Tool

Colorado-based designer and manufacturer of architectural metal panels Parasoleil has launched its Project Creator design tool for architects, designers and customers. It allows users to customize and design their own panel projects that are still architecturally sound. The free website allows users to pick from four applications for which they are designing: shade, screen, railing or cladding projects. It then offers material size and thickness recommendations based on the customer’s input on existing structures or those still in design. The patterns are designed in a larger format to allow the user to crop out a section best for their project’s needs, all within Parasoleil pattern development criteria.

Plastic Deflection Pulleys

Schwartz Technical Plastics has two new offerings in its OPTAMID® plastic pulley range. The OPTAMID Green Pulley is a remake of the original OPTAMID (ELEVATOR WORLD, December 2015) that meets requirements of reduced material, energy and grease use. The company says it also boasts longer material lifetime (exceeding 10 years), less service effort, reduced error rates and improved ride comfort. Its weight is reduced from the original 6.2 to 4.6 kg, and only six components are used, instead of 11. Additional ribs provide more stability and uniform deformation under load, jointly with a slimmer design.

The OPTAMID Highrise pulley is made of a new material developed for pulley use in skyscraper elevators that travel up to 18 mps. Intended to maintain dimensional stability even under high loads and during temperature fluctuations, it also absorbs vibrations. Like its other pulleys, the Schwartz’s OPTAMID Highrise is certified worldwide. For the U.S., the company holds an ASME A17.7/CSA B44.7 Certificate of Conformance.

New Residential Elevator Door Lock

Rocky Mountain Elevator Products of Colorado has designed the Stainless SMARTLOCK GL series residential elevator door lock. Like its other SmartLock products (EW, February 2017), it uses 24 VAC or VDC with plug-and-play wiring and has compact dimensions to meet the “3 in. rule.” It is designed to mount to 3/8-in. tempered laminate safety glass. Made on a steel frame with an all-stainless-steel exterior, it has no microswitches to break and a call button integrated into its housing. There is also a lunar key for emergency entry, and manual operation from inside the hoistway is possible. It uses the industry standard door-closed and door-lock circuits for safety.
