On June 26 and 27, 2014, the SafeLine Partner meeting took place again. The meeting was organized by SafeLine Sweden in Stockholm. Among roughly 60 participants from 13 European countries were, besides SafeLine representatives, also manufacturers of lift components, operators of emergency call service centers, as well as users and consultants.
In the presentations and the ensuing discussions the new requirements for emergency telephones and possible solutions, as well as the conversion of the telephone network to VoIP in the Next Generation Network were discussed. In the afternoon the connection of lift components via CANopen-Lift was the main topic, as well as the portrayal of resulting new opportunities. The closing talk offered an outlook on the challenges resulting from the new lift guideline EN81 20/50.
The event ended with granting several awards, from which we had the honour to receive the award for the "Most innovative solutions". We are very happy about this unexpected distinction and take it as an incitement to receive it again in two years.
