More light and safety in the shaft



The Giovenzana GM264 pendant station was designed to meet the needs of a major global elevator manufacturer, which wanted the safest, most up to date code compliant pendant that also addressed some of the safety issues field technicians face.

When such pendants are used, the light conditions are not optimum. The GM264 incorporates two bright LED strip lights moulded into the sides of the pendant. This allows for additional focused yet flexible lighting whether in the pit or on the car top. There is also an option to have a built-in flashlight at the head of the pendant for more close-up illumination.

According to Giovenzana, this control station is totally customizable. The strip lights can be customized to provide visual warning alerts, status notification by changing the color of the side lights or simply white light.

It can also be provided with internal magnets which allow it to be secured to I-beams, etc. or it can be configured with a mounting bracket that, through the use of reed switches, can notify the elevator operator that the pendant is in use and not in the regular car top inspection station.

"This flexible, portable pendant station also incorporates all the features that have made Giovenzana famous in the field of safe elevator controls," stressed the company. With the mechanical operating, self-monitored contacts (PCW010SS) in the emergency stop switch, it is a SIL3 rated device.

The same degree of safety can be found in the changeover inspection switch with positive opening and SIL3 certification, according to Giovenzana. The shell is in thermoplastic flame, retardant ABS V0 material with a high level of impact resistance.

Easy to handle and very user friendly

The internal contacts are spring-proof, vibration proof and in compliance with Worldwide Elevator and Lift Safety Codes. GM264 complies with the European Standards EN 81-20 / EN 81-50.

According to the company, this pendant with a very ergonomic design and light weight construction is easy to handle and very user friendly.

This pendant is a safe and intelligently designed operating pendant that places safety ahead of everything else and yet does so while still being affordable and user friendly, Giovenzana emphasized.
