Otis Key-Operated Stop Switch package provides a means to comply with national elevator safety codes, which require an in-car stop switch to be key operated. This eliminates the potential of one passenger activating the emergency stop switch and trapping another passenger in the car while the elevator is traveling between floors.
The code-compliant, Key-Operated Stop Switch prevents a passenger from victimizing another passenger by pressing the elevator stop button between floors. The new Key-Operated Stop Switch is designed to improve passenger safety and security.
This stop switch replaces the conventional Otis push/pull emergency stop buttons and the toggle emergency stop switches. If fire fighters service is being added or currently exists, the new keyed stop switch must be by-passed when firefighters service is activated
