On the 19th of September of 2012 the second meeting of the manufacturer of lift controller units took place at the company KW Aufzugstechnik GmbH. The company ELFIN GmbH invited to the meeting and moderated the discussions. The invitation to Oberursel was adressed this time to 15 mid sized lift controller manufacturers.
At this meeting, the participants discussed three major topics: 1) The need to use RCDs in order to fulfill the VDE 0100-410 standard, 2) a standardized interface to emergency telephones that offers a modem function and 3) the definition of interfaces between elevators and building automation.
The meeting was rated by all participants as very constructive. Therefore it was decided to have these meetings regulary in the future to define common open standard interfaces to external devices or networks. The document exchange and communication to the public will take place on the website OC4L.org. More information about the objectives, members, dates and documents are available on this website.
The next meeting was planned for the 16th of January 2013. For further information about this meeting, please contact Jörg Hellmich from ELFIN GmbH.
