TOFgard: Evolution in elevator door safeguarding!

The decades-old method of using light barriers and light curtains to safeguard elevator doors is about to come to an end – thanks to the TOFgard sensor from Swiss sensor solution specialist, CEDES. This compact and versatile Time Of Flight camera sensor offers the safeguarding function but extended across both the cabin and landing door closing edges. In other words, it offers genuine full door area protection for passengers, freight and the door itself. Up to now, light barriers and curtains have been used to safeguard passengers and freight entering and leaving elevators. Read more

iDiscovery: Elevator safety systems in one device!

The iDiscovery is a powerful SIL3 and EN 81compliant position supervisor unit. In conjunction with CEDES’ APS (Absolute Positioning System) it takes over safety-relevant elevator functions and devices of an elevator. These include detection of unintended car movement, pre-opening of doors, re-leveling with open doors, overspeed detection, retardation control and limit switches. All this significantly reduces the cost and complexity of both elevator equipment and installation. Read more
