Yet another milestone for the Memcom in Europe
Memco’s hugely successful Memcom elevator emergency telephone has achieved another milestone, achieving certification by the renowned TÜV AUSTRIA Group. One of Europe’s leading and most respected certification bodies, the TÜV AUSTRIA Group is a fully independent institution providing testing, accreditations and certifications to companies from across Europe. Its certifications are recognised worldwide as being of the highest standard.
The Memcom was tested in collaboration with the ÖWD, the largest service centre for elevator emergency calls in Austria (www.notrufcervicecentre.at).
As part of the certification process Memco’s ETR software was installed to monitor EN81-28* test calls and technical calls to check the battery, microphone and loudspeaker. Pressing the emergency button in the elevator cabin automatically connected the phone to the ÖWD service centre. A pre-recorded location message then identified the elevator location, allowing the call handler to effect a rescue.
The Memcom incorporates a variety of features to make installation, setup and continued use as easy and simple as possible. An on-unit keypad, backlit LCD and microphone all help to ease programming of numbers and messages, and the MPS (Multi Point Station) accessory is suitable for the motor room, pit and under-car locations instead of needing different units for all three. The flexibility of the product means that it also fulfils EN81-28 safety requirements across Europe.

*EN81-28 2004 requires that an elevator emergency telephone device is checked every 3 days or less by simulating an emergency call (automatic test), and that any battery supporting the system has a minimum of 1 hour of life.
