ASME A17.1 2000 ROPE BRAKES MODERNIATION : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

Hi There Well here in California the current code is ASME 1996 unless its a gov job and I was wondering what problems are being encountered in mod work on high speed geerless machine brakes and the new non proprietory vendor controls.Everyone is scrabling around to mod under the old 1996 code so they dont have to deal with new controls and rope brakes. What troubles are you experiencing doing mod work with the new code. thanks Jim

I just finished 3 400fpm Otis cars . We put MCE controller and Holister whitney rope brakes.I must say i was suprised how easy they both were to install and adjust .
