IR Elevator Controls
Accessible Elevator Control by Abilia (GEWA) AB
Imagine. An accessible integrated residence, a public library, and a hospice for children.
All three of these buildings were given the chance to provide independent access to those who use them.
A way to make buildings completely accessible is with the installation of GEWA Infra-Link infrared remote control of elevator access systems by Abilia AB. The remote control system offers complete independence and total floor access to those with severe physical disabilities.
Buildings can be made completely accessible by the installation of GEWA Infra-Link infrared remote control of the elevator access systems. With a one-button remote control unit, the elevator can be summoned on each floor and the destination floor called once inside the car. Optional remote control units are available with more buttons for those who have the capability to use them. And there are transmitters available for computers and AAC devices.
No one ever seems to be around when you need to call the elevator. Even in busy facilities like the medical complex in this photo, there is the need for independent access to the elevator.
The remote control system offers complete independence and total floor access to those with severe physical disabilities. Often, the car is too small to turn to face the control panel. One drives in and backs out—which means that the controls are inaccessible. No problem when Infra-Link controls are installed — just drive into the car and make the required selection—even if the receiver is behind you.
From the outside, there isn't much to show about the remote control system. At most there is a small receiver that is mounted on the wall. Some installations have the receiver hidden behind panels and all that shows is the unobtrusive infrared window.
These systems are typically installed by Building Engineers or the technicians normally responsible for the elevator system within the buildings. We can provide details to those professionals considering installations for you so they can feel comfortable with how these items will fit in with their existing systems.
In describing the system to technical people (elevator contractors, etc.), it's important to note that the system consists of "dry-contact relays" that are wired in parallel to the existing buttons of the car-calls on each floor and the floor-call buttons in the car. The relays are operated by infrared receivers that are commanded by infrared transmitters. The system can be set to operate with as few as one transmitter signal (scanning) to direct selection of all the buttons independently. One look at the hardware is all that's needed for you to determine the high quality industrial grade of these products.
