Safety in the elevator: simulation of a blackout

In recent years, the scenario of a blackout has been repeatedly discussed in the media and in public. Mr. Georg Spitzer shows the simulation of such a blackout on the monitoring device of the safety chain. In the event of a power failure, it opens the brake by means of a stutter circuit and thus reduces the speed. A sensor detects the possibility of stopping the elevator at a door, for example, in order to release the people inside. Once this has been done, the elevator goes out of service. New installations have this application integrated as standard. Variotech offers an innovative device for emergency release as a new feature for retrofitting to existing installations, which is not yet available on the market in this form.
