Avire unveils two new products at IEE Expo

Optical slot sensor and emergency telephone launched at Indian show

Avire will unveil two new products at the IEE Expo 2014 in Mumbai, India.

The Optical Slot Sensor from TL Jones provides accurate lift levelling to millimetre precision

The Optical Slot Sensor from TL Jones provides accurate lift levelling to millimetre precision, ensuring the safety of passengers as they enter and exit the lift. The slot sensor has exceptional resistance to dirt and debris thanks to its robust, fully sealed IP65-rated enclosure. The product has high light immunity, high repeatability and is suitable for new or existing installations.

Memco’s C100 emergency telephone can be surface or flush mounted, or installed behind the car operating panel. It features integrated emergency lighting, a customisable text plate and pictograms that remain hidden until backlit. The unit can be programmed code-free with a cost-effective programming tool.

Avire will also be presenting LCD displays from E-Motive and the Qccess wireless video camera, as well as a wide range of Memco and TL Jones light curtains. TL Jones light curtains are manufactured at Avire’s factory in Thane, India.

IEE Expo takes place at the Bombay Exhibition Centre from 20-22 March. Representatives of Avire at the event will be found on Stand B19 and include sales and marketing director Andy Harbidge, telephones business manager Adam Sykes and displays product manager Jin Yee Chua.

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.
