Anti-Personnel Entrapment System

Stay ahead of power outages thanks to the Anti-Personnel Entrapment system designed to keep passengers safe regardless of severe weather, power grid problems or any emergency power loss situation. The simple safety upgrade installation kit from Adams is available for Schindler-manufactured hydraulic elevators, including the 330A, 321A, 300A and MPH2.

Available for low-rise hydraulic elevators, the battery lowering system takes control immediately, cancelling any floor calls, lowering the car to the designated egress landing and opening elevator doors in the event of an emergency. The system cannot raise cars to a higher level. The kit provides an economical way to minimize passenger disruption incidents whenever a power outage is detected.

The battery lowering system automatically reacts to the loss of standard power without any manual activation. By immediately reacting, the emergency return system keeps your elevators in service and gets passengers out of a power-compromised elevator within seconds—saving riders from the inconvenience of remaining stuck inside the car and you the trouble of a costly emergency service call to release trapped passengers. The system includes a battery backup pack, cables, brackets, wiring diagrams and software modified to allow battery lowering in the event of power failure. The battery pack, boasting an up to five-year life expectancy, is designed to minimize service requests.
