Came across the webpage below doing a google search. Anyone know what make the equipment is? Beautiful vintage controls! Just Curious, Chris

100% sure its Otis - Possibly 21UCL controllers (UMV) but not too sure. But I can see it has that horribe VIR wiring. I re-adjusted some units similar if not older than these once - everytime a resistor band was moved the wiring would break; they were about 40 years old.

Yeah, there is no doubt that is Otis equipment. Probably UCL or AUD controls. Looks pretty clean!

Definitely an Otis Gearless Traction and Advance selector. Looks very well kept considering its age. Someone obviously has time for maintenance. Wonder who has that contract?
