Memco Limited launched two new products at this year’s Interlift exhibition in Germany: the new E-Series range of safety edges and a new LED elevator lighting system.
Memco’s E-Series safety edges are a reliable and cost effective option for both new and existing installations. Suitable for either static or dynamic installation, they feature a diagnostic LED with enhanced timeout, meaning they will continue working in the event of a diode fault. In addition, sunlight immunity of over 100,000 LUX ensures the detectors will operate even when exposed to full sunlight. 16, 18, 32 and 40 diode versions deliver a wide detector range, while an extended range of voltages from +11vDC to +42vDC provide greater versatility, making them ideal for busy service companies.
Memco’s new LED elevator lighting is specifically designed for use in both new installations and modernisation projects. Housed in a robust controller box, the system has all cabling pre-wired and connectivity for up to 6 LEDs, allowing quick and easy installation. In the event of a power failure, it provides emergency lighting for 120 minutes due to its battery backup. With a 50,000 hour life, the LED lamps use only 10% of the power of conventional incandescent or fluorescent lighting and, by emitting less heat, they ensure a much reduced energy cost. They have 25 times the lifespan of halogen lamps and produce a bright, clear light for increased safety and visibility, dimmer options are also available.
In addition to these new products Memco will also be exhibiting its extensive existing range of elevator safety products, including its popular Panachrome safety edge range, with patented technology, and its Memcom and G3X emergency telephone systems.
Visitors had the opportunity to see Memco’s Surfguard product, a dual PIR system which deters intruders from accessing the top of the elevator car top.
Interlift, held in the city of Augsburg every two years, is one of the world’s major elevator exhibitions, attracting over 18,000 visitors in 2009.
