Monitor Controls Divested from Halma plc

Elevator fixture company sold to Innovation Industries Inc
Hauppauge, N.Y. (June 2, 2014) – Halma plc has divested Monitor Controls, part of its Infrastructure Safety sector. The elevator fixture manufacturer was sold to Innovation Industries Inc on May 30, 2014. Janus Elevator Products, also part of Halma’s Infrastructure Safety sector, is not affected by the sale.

While Monitor Controls and Janus Elevator have had a close operating relationship since each was acquired by Halma, Monitor Controls was spun off as an independent company in 2011. The sale of Monitor Controls aligns Halma’s Infrastructure Safety sector more closely with its mission to “detect hazards to protect assets and people in public spaces and commercial buildings.” Janus safety edges, emergency phones, and digital displays promote safe elevator travel and security.

“It will be business as usual for Janus following the sale of Monitor,” said Mike Byrne, Janus president. “We will continue to focus on delivering elevator safety and communications products with excellent customer service and engineering support. Looking forward, we’re excited to roll out the new Panorama Multimedia Ultra-Wide LCD display and continue to develop our Panachrome line of unique elevator detection and visual warning edges.”

Ian’s presence in Shanghai expected to accelerate actions for the China market

Halma, the leading safety, health and environmental technology group, has promoted Ian Steel, former managing director of Fire Fighting Enterprises Limited (FFE), to group managing director of Avire Ltd, the world’s leading provider of lift safety and communication systems.

Ian Steel has been promoted to group managing director of Avire

Both FFE and Avire are Halma companies within Halma’s Infrastructure Safety Sector.  Ian has already relocated to Shanghai and his family will be joining him shortly.

Prior to taking the helm at Avire, Ian was managing director of FFE for more than six years. He has more than 20 years’ experience in marketing and sales of electronic detectors, monitors and related products and services that guarantee infrastructure safety in commercial and residential properties. Ian studied chemistry at Halton Technical College.

Sixty per cent of the world’s lifts are now manufactured in China and Halma has been successfully keeping pace with the expansion of this important market.

Nigel Trodd, Halma’s sector chief executive of Infrastructure Safety, said: “Ian’s industry experience and insight are great assets for the long-term sustainable growth of Avire. And his board presence in Shanghai is expected to accelerate actions for the China market.”

Avire Shanghai has developed steadily in the past year with the new TL Jones K Class product developed for the Chinese market. Meanwhile the company’s European-produced Memco products are achieving success at the premium end of the market. In the past year, Avire Shanghai has established a much stronger R&D team under new leadership and the company’s sales and finance teams have been updated and strengthened.  Having moved to a bright, spacious modern facility in mid-2013, Avire Shanghai has also added new SMT (PCB assembly) equipment and a conveyor assembly line.

Ian Steel said: “I am delighted to join Avire at a very exciting time for the company. The team has worked incredibly hard to ensure that the business will continue to grow into the future. I am particularly looking forward to my time in Shanghai, which I am sure will provide both personal and professional growth.”

Emergency telephone’s ease of programming a winner at Interlift

Memcom’s tick-box system helps exhibition visitor land an iPad

Following its attendance at Liftex, leading provider of lift safety and communication systems Avire ran another competition around its Memcom emergency telephone system at this year’s Interlift. The contest challenged visitors to the Avire stand to prove how quickly they could program the latest incarnation of Memcom.

Sascha Hartmann, from Mayland Aufzüge, won a new Apple iPad after programming Memcom to complete an alarm call in just one minute 21 seconds.

A delighted Sascha said: “Memcom’s tick-box system has made programming the unit a very quick and easy process.”

Memcom is the first emergency telephone on the market that can be programmed without codes or a programming tool. Thanks to a new interface that relies on a tick-box system and drop-down menus rather than code-based prefixes and suffixes, programming the unit is a simpler and more intuitive process.

The challenge involved programming the emergency telephone to be fully functioning, with alarm telephone, technical and background numbers. The system also had to be set up to accept an external microphone and GSM, and transmit a voice message detailing Avire’s stand number. The alarm button could then be pushed and the call received by the call centre on Avire’s stand.

Featuring a keypad, backlit LCD display and built-in microphone, Memcom is quick and convenient to set up. Research during product development showed that the most common cause of emergency phone returns was incorrect unit programming, rather than actual hardware faults. The backlit LCD display decreases this likelihood as engineers can clearly see what they are programming into the unit, even in a dark lift shaft.

New wiring looms facilitate emergency telephone installation

Memcom now integrated into lifts more quickly and easily

Leading provider of lift safety and communication systems Avire has developed new wiring looms for its Memcom emergency alarm system, to make integrating Memcom into installed lifts a quick and simple process.

emergency telephone looms, Memcom

The looms, which are pre-wired into the Memcom terminal block, allow the lift’s existing pictograms and alarm push buttons to be used and provide labelled wires to connect to these components.

Some of the looms also contain relays, removing the need to source and install relays to switch pictograms. In these cases, the loom is simply plugged into the Memcom and wired into the lift as detailed on the wiring labels.

The latest version of Memcom features a new interface in which programming relies on a tick-box system and drop-down menus rather than code-based prefixes and suffixes, making programming the unit a simpler and more intuitive process. This makes Memcom the first emergency telephone on the market that can be programmed without codes or a programming tool.
