5 Liftinstituut in general First European institution to be appointed as Notified Body with regard to Lift Directive 95/16/ECIn March 2009 Liftinstituut was appointed as AECO (Acreditated Elevator/Escalator Certification Organization) by ANSI!Active participation in meetings of Notified BodiesInvolved in many normalization committees for codes and standards in Europe / North America / ISO
6 EN 81-1/2:1998 + A3:2009 Valid from 1-1-2010 Main items: restriction of scope (0.15 m/s)fixing systems of removable guardsprotection against unintended movementslevelling and re-levelling accuracyCEN declares items 3 and 4 are not related to the new Machinery Directive.Therefore transition period of 24 months for items 3 and 4 (comply fully )
7 Restriction of scopeThe MD (2006/42/EC) includes some changes for LD (95/16/EC):Border between lifts and machines is more clear:Clause 1.3 g EN 81-1 (1.3 h EN 81-2)Lifts which have a speed of less than 0.15 m/s are excluded.
8 Fixing systems of removable guards The MD (2006/42/EC) includes some changes which have effect on lifts:Clause EN 81-1/2The fixing system of guards, used specifically to provide protection against mechanical, electrical or any other hazards by means of a physical barrier, which have to be removed during regular maintenance and inspection, remains attached to the guard or to the equipment when the guard is removed.Vang vanuit binnenzijde kooi onderhoud
9 Levelling and re-levelling accuracy Clause EN 81-1 (clause EN 81-2)The stopping accuracy of the car shall be ± 10 mm;A levelling accuracy of ± 20 mm shall be maintained. If, during e.g. loading and unloading phases, the value of 20 mm is exceeded, it shall be corrected.EN 81-70
10 Protection against unintended car movement Clause 9.11 EN 81-1 (clause 9.13 EN 81-2)Means shall stop unintended car movement away from the landing with the landing door not in the locked position and the car door not in the closed position.
11 Protection against unintended car movement Is a result of failure in any single component of the lift machine or drive control system upon which the safe movement of the car depends.Excluded are failure of the suspension ropes or chains and the traction sheave or drum or sprockets of the machine. (loss of traction)
13 System descriptionDetectorMicroprocessorelementStopping
14 DetectorsThe unintended movement of the car shall be detected by at least one switching device at latest when the car leaves the unlocking zone (7.7.1).be a safety contact in conformity withbe connected in such a way as to satisfy the requirements for safety circuits in (Fault tree) or (PESSRAL).Punt 1 is schakelaar met kanaalschaats forced actuation2 a ABC schakeling, 2 b pess
15 Stopping element on the car, or on the counterweight, or The stopping element of the means shall act:on the car, oron the counterweight, oron the rope system (suspension or compensating), oron the traction sheave (e.g. on the sheave directly or on the same shaft in the immediate vicinity of the sheave).
16 Stopping element 1 gn for unintended movements in up direction, Maximum retardation of the car with any load in the car, up to 100 % of rated load:1 gn for unintended movements in up direction,the values accepted for safety gears in down direction.
17 Stopping element 1 gn for unintended movements in up direction : the deceleration values should be verified or calculated taking into account an empty car and a fully loaded car.
18 Stopping elementThe values accepted for safety gears in down direction:This means that higher deceleration values than 1 gn are allowed.f.e. Instantaneous safety gears or progressive safety gears at a lower speed or loads
19 Stopping element Possible elements: “Normal” brake Traction sheave brakeRope gripperOverspeed governorSafety gearSafety valve
21 Typical sequence Car is not at the level and starts to re-level. Car accelerates and passes allowed levelling zone.Power is removed from motor/brake and UCM is activated.UCM means is stopping the car.
23 Response time The maximum speed is depending on: System setup (weights, sheaves, travel)Drive system (power, detection)Response time [detection(3), stopping element (4)]
24 Questions to ask What is the levelling zone? What is the delay of electrical system?What speed can the drive accomplish?What is the natural acceleration?CWT mass, Car mass, Nominal loadRule of thumb:Empty: gn = g x ((CWTm – Carm) / (CWTm + Carm ))Full: gn = g x ((CWTm – Carm) / (CWTm + Carm + Q))Punt 3 indien interne controle op snelheid mag de normale versnelling in beschouwing genomen worden.
25 Questions to ask What is the delay of stopping element? What is stopping force?Is the final result within the limits
