Does anyone in here work on elevator equipment..? if so can you pm me, I have a question I would like to ask.
that's the problem, there is a crap load of documented material on the actual elevator stuff but nothing on this box that feeds the panel that feeds the three elevator cars. It would have been easy if I had something to look at. but something changed from the time I replaced the contactor to when they first had the problem. I will go back tonight and look at the cube relay.if you can get the schematics look at them closely for the thermal sensor connections to the relay
is it is not the same as the schematic or is different without notation then it has been tampered with.
when it comes to elevators any electrician working on them has to follow protocol and document repairs and alterations (these need approval of an engineer and inspected as well)
any and all documents pertaining to the electrical system of a lift or elevator must have the co-responding alterations noted and highlighted
this is a case of cya to the max
Here in the good ol north. The only people allowed to touch elevator equipment are elevator mechanics. We are responsible for main feeders to the equipment and cab lighting and that is it. Legally we are not even supposed to be in the machine room unless an elevator mechanic is present.
You Canadians and your rules. It's basic electrical work not brain surgeryCanadianSparky said:Here in the good ol north. The only people allowed to touch elevator equipment are elevator mechanics.

In North Carolina, there is a special electrical license for elevator work. I think our state enforces that only elevator companies work on them. My insurance wont let me touch one, in fact, I called my insurance rep one time about something and I was told my insurance actually doesnt even cover me working on underground pools, boilers, and a bunch of other odd ball stuff. Im betting somebody else's paycheck you couldn't get coverage for elevators unless you carried such license.You Canadians and your rules. It's basic electrical work not brain surgery
If it is elevator recall then it is still considered apart of the elevator controller and we still can't touch it....regardless of it being FA. It is illegal and I would rather not receive a big ol fine even if it is just basic electrical work.Its the same here in the good ole south.
What he is doing is FA, not elevator work.
