Safety factor for suspension ropes : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

Latest EN 81 code refers to safety factor for suspension ropes. It makes a difference between simple bend of the cable (around pulley) and a reversed bend. Could someone explain the difference between the two? Is it refers to all pulleys in the installation? How can no. of pulleys be define? (simple and reversed)

Thank you David
