Ensure safety and availability through inspection, certification, advisory and predictive maintenance

Operators and manufacturers of lifts, escalators and moving walks need to comply with a wide range of international/ local regulations and standards. In addition, they need to ensure the well-being and comfort of the passengers. Therefore, organisations, duty holders and owners need to balance concerns such as lift maintenance, emergency attendance, operational availability, quality and safety with the need to maintain a cost and energy efficient operation.

At the same time, the requirements and demands change continuously as technology advances. For example, Programmable Electronic Systems in Safety-Relevant Applications (PESSRAL) of lifts follow the principles of Functional Safety and substitute and extended mechanical safety with software-based safety. Along with the digitisation of lifts, cyber security in lifts has starting to emerge as crucial topic.
