In the U.S., ASME A17.1 code, requiring elevator systems to incorporate a rope brake, was not introduced until 2001 (1996 in Canada). Because of this, controllers installed before 2001 may lack the necessary logic to appropriately manage a rope brake during an unintended motion or up overspeed event. Electrodyn’s UMDC provides the necessary code-compliant control to properly manage a rope brake and ensure passenger safety. Capable of retrofitting to any controller and brake type, it’s one-of-a-kind. It is the ONLY after-market retrofit product on the market today that provides unintended motion logic.
