AUTOMATIC SELF-LEVELING (WITH HOISTWAY LEVELING DEVICE)
The elevator shall be provided with automatic self-leveling that shall bring the elevator car level with the floor landings, no

against overloading. The system shall also perform group operational control.
Each controller cabinet containing memory equipment shall be properly shielded from line pollution. The microcomputer
system shall be designed to accept reprogramming with minimum system downtime.
NEW OPERATION - ONE CAR
Operation shall be automatic by means of the car and landing buttons. Stops registered by momentary actuation of the car or
landing buttons shall be made in the order in which the landings are reached in each direction of travel after the buttons have
been actuated. All stops shall be subject to the respective car or landing button being actuated sufficiently in advance of the
arrival of the car at that landing to enable the stop to be made. The direction of travel for an idle car shall be established by
the first car or landing button actuated.
“UP” landing calls shall be answered while the car is traveling in the up direction and “DOWN” landing calls shall be
answered while the car is traveling down. The car shall reverse after the uppermost or lowermost car or landing call has been
answered, then proceed to answer car calls and landing calls registered in the opposite direction of travel.
If the car without registered calls arrives at a floor where both up and down hall calls are registered, it shall initially respond
to the hall call in the direction that the car was traveling. If no car call or hall call is registered for further travel in that
direction, the car shall close its doors and immediately reopen them in response to the hall call in the opposite.
When the Independent Service switch in the car operating panel is actuated, it shall cancel previously registered car calls,
disconnect the elevator from the hall buttons, and allow operation from the car buttons only. Door operation shall occur only
after actuation of the “DOOR CLOSE” button.
CAR TO LOBBY OPERATION
A key switch shall be provided for each elevator at the main floor. Its actuation shall cause the corresponding elevator to
make a trip to the lobby as soon as the car is available for response to the special call.
