TL Jones supplies elevator light curtains and displays to India’s Delhi Metro
TL Jones has supplied 185 elevator light curtains and 555 dot-matrix displays to the Delhi Metro (DMRC) in India. The passenger safety and information products are fitted to elevators supplied by Kone and Johnson Lifts. Each elevator features Pana40 3D light curtains and three PD3001 LED displays.
Dinesh Musalekar, general manager at TL Jones India, commented: “We are extremely happy to have supplied our world-class product range to the country’s largest infrastructure project, the Delhi Metro. These products have been supplied continuously over the last three years, in conjunction with the elevator OEMs that have contributed to the project.”
The Pana40 3D incorporates two independent detection systems. The first is a light curtain of infrared beams criss-crossing the elevator car’s doors; the second a 3D proximity detection system in the landing zone. Any object interrupting the direct beams or reflections within the 3D detection zone will trigger the system and re-open the elevator doors.
Specific benefits of the Pana40 3D include increased passenger safety and improved traffic flow, as well as reduced collisions between trolleys, wheelchairs or pushchairs and the elevator doors. Typical applications include busy public buildings such as hospitals, shopping centres, hotels, offices, passenger terminals and public transport systems.
The detectors are manufactured in various profiles to suit a variety of elevator doors, including both centre- and side-opening doors.
The Delhi Metro is a rapid transit system built and operated by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Limited, serving Delhi, Gurgaon and Noida in the National Capital Region of India. The network consists of six lines with a total length of 156 kilometres (97 miles) and 132 stations. It uses a combination of elevated, ground-level and underground lines.
