Have you heard the term battery lowering in relation to your elevator equipment and wondered how it works?

Here’s a brief definition:

Battery lowering operation occurs when the loss of normal power is detected, a battery lowering feature is to be activated. The elevator will lower to a predetermined level and open the doors. After passengers have exited the car, the doors will close and the car will shutdown. When normal power becomes available, the elevator will automatically resume operation. The battery lowering feature is included in the elevator contract and does not utilize a building-supplied standby power source.

This device is a great feature for buildings that require access at all hours of the day. Specifically office buildings, residential, colleges, universities, and manufacturing. Installation can often be scheduled in conjunction with your next maintenance visit so your equipment will experience little to no downtime.
