Are your elevators compliant with the upcoming mandated code updates per NYC Department of Buildings?
2020 Door Lock Monitoring:
This code states that by January 1, 2020 all automatic passenger elevators shall provide a system to monitor and prevent automatic operation of an elevator with the faulty door contact circuit. All controllers built to meet the A17.1-2020 Code effective 2009 should have the door lock monitoring provisions built in. However, in 2016 the NYC DOB issued a service update bulletin starting that all existing elevators must comply with ASME A17.3 and NYC DOB K3 rule 3.10.2. This update included modifications to Fireman’s service operation which many elevator controllers did not have provisions for
