Basic knowledge of elevators - common terms for elevators

(1) Increase the height. Refers to the total operating height of the elevator from the bottom end station to the top end station floor.

(2) landing. In each floor, where the elevator stops, there is at most one station for each floor, but there are no stations on certain floors as needed.

(3) The bottom end station. Refers to the lowest stop of the building's small elevator. When the building has an underground floor, the bottom end station is often not the bottom station of the building.

(4) Top-level end stations. Refers to the highest stop in the building.

(5) Base station. Refers to the landing that the car stops when there is no command to run. This bottom station generally faces the street and has the largest number of people entering and leaving the car. For the collective control elevator and the parallel control elevator with the automatic return base station function, the reasonable selection of the base station has the significance of improving the use efficiency.

(6) Leveling. Refers to the action of the car sill and the landing sill to the same plane when the car approaches the stop. It can also be understood as the slow motion process of the elevator when the landing is normally stopped.

(7) Leveling area. Refers to the limited distance above and/or below the car stop. In this area, the elevator level control device operates, making it difficult to level the car.

(8) Leveling accuracy. Refers to the error value of the plane perpendicular to the vertical plane of the floor sill after the car stops at the station.

(9) Elevator driver. Refers to those who have been specially trained and qualified by the relevant departments to be authorized to operate the elevator.

(10) Inspection and operation. When the elevator is being repaired and maintained, it is operated by a full-time maintenance personnel to operate at a low speed of less than 0.63 m/s.

(11) Elevator lift height. Refers to the vertical distance between the two floors of the escalator entrance and exit.

(12) Theoretical transportation capacity. Refers to the number of people who can theoretically transport an escalator or moving walkway per hour.

(13) Step horizontal moving distance. Refers to the horizontal movement of the escalator at the exit.
