Montgomery Escalator Brakes : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

I would like to hear from thos of you who have experience with MECO escalator brakes. Adjustment, torque settings, maintenance, repair or things along these lines.

Does the "controlled brake" furnish a stopping profile regardless of load? Can the brake be set up to stop quickly as in maximum stopping rate for a comb entrapment and yet provide a different or longer stopping distance should there be a side of step entrapment? I refer to this as diffrential stopping patterns. What are the experiences with the Warner Electric ER 825 and 1225 brakes used on MECO escalators? Who actually fabricates the control circuits and who designed them? Much thanks for any comments I may receive. Vern Keller
