Ecosystem

The DCP is the brain of the ecosystem as it acts as a two-way data link allowing information to flow in and out of the lift shaft. This data flow enables configuration and monitoring of all devices on the MK CANBus. MK CANBus is the easy to install connection between the Avire Ecosystem devices. All information sent via the DCP is presented on our secure cloud-platform, the Avire Hub.

Accessories

The CANBus Splitter and Universal Power Supply are accessories to the system.

The CANBus Splitter allows for up to 4 CANBus lines per splitter and two splitters can be used per DCP. The DCP can therefore work with multiple lift shafts.

The Lift HAWK is the solution for monitoring the status of your lifts remotely. When fitted on the top of the lift car (TOC) the Lift HAWK remotely moves the lift to check that it is functioning properly with lift tests initiated via the Avire Hub. The HAWK also self-learns the typical activity of a lift and can autonomously perform lift tests in periods of prolonged inactivity.

COMING SOON.

The Avire Hub is a cloud based platform for monitoring and configuring devices. Specifically designed for the lift industry the secure platform allows you to view your lift portfolio online, perform tests to check lift functionality, monitor AS1735.19 / EN81-28 background calls and receive real-time feedback and alerts.

A new controller has been launched for Panachrome+ including a CANBus connection. The smart controller sends data back to the Avire Hub via the DCP with information such as number of timed out diodes, door blocks, region of the blocked diode on the light curtain and number of door cycles. Alerts can be set up so that you are notified on the go via email.

There is no need to replace the COP or wire to the lift controller when you install the PRP display and Nav Box. The Navigation Box is easy to configure and inbuilt sensors provide floor position information to be shown on screen. Tact switches allow for display configuration to be done on site. The PRP offers a high quality picture display that quickly and easily updates your lifts.

The Digital Audio Unit (DAU), Triphony Unit, Inductive Loop and Pit Phone (DAP) build the AS1735.19 / EN81-28 compliant emergency telephone feature of the DCP.

The DAU sits behind the COP panel with Triphony units providing TOC and BOC communication points, or alternatively a DAP can be used in the pit to provide an alarm point at the bottom of the shaft. Inductive Loop provides EN81-70 compliance.

Smart Elevators

Our Communication System consists of 2 core elements and a potential for several extremity components providing data to these 2 core elements. The heart of the communication system is the DCP; a platform allowing two-way data communication and this data comes to life through the Avire Hub cloud interface.

The DCP allows customers to send and receive data to and from connected devices within the lift shaft, it provides a data link which feeds into and from our intuitive and easy-to-use cloud platform.

Using data to improve efficiency is not a new concept and the Digital Communications System brings this to lifts, without the cost and hassle of installing a new controller. With remote configuration and monitoring the DCP allows customers to have real time information regarding lift status for the purposes of predictive maintenance and to inform decision making.

Avire’s Smart Elevators Ecosystem is not yet available in the Australia and will be arriving in 2020.

 

DCP Digital Communication Platform

The DCP combines a GSM gateway, emergency telephone and M2M gateway in a single unit. The system is EN81-28 compliant and allows you to upgrade a system from PSTN to GSM. The DCP allows you to reliably configure, update and monitor devices remotely.

Avire Hub

Avire’s cloud monitoring system allows you to see your entire lift portfolio online, to spot when a site visit is actually necessary, to remotely update displays and other equipment, to stream data live from lift controllers or sensors, and to do all of this within a safe and secure digital environment.

Lift HAWK

A common issue for lift engineers is being called out to site to check an ‘out of service’ lift, however, the lift is often ‘running on arrival’. The Lift HAWK means that maintenance companies can quickly and easily check to see if the lift is genuinely ‘out of service’ from a remote location.

PRP

The unique retrofit display solution. Less wiring, less time, less hassle. The E-Motive PRP is the only option for easily upgrading to an eye-catching LCD solution.

Panachrome+

Connected Panachrome+ is the world’s most complete elevator door safety mechanism. This premium light curtain has coloured red and green indicators to highlight door movement.

DCP Accessories

The DCP has some system accessories and the Digital Audio Unit (DAU), Triphony Unit, Inductive Loop and Pit Phone (DAP) build the AS1735.19 / EN81-28:2018 compliant emergency telephone system.

Elevator Social Distancer (ESD)

The solution that helps keep your elevators safe and maintain social distancing in your buildings. COVID-19 has changed the way we have to operate in our buildings and using the ESD is an effective way to help keep elevators from becoming overcrowded.

Connex-02

The Connex-02 has inputs and outputs that are fully configurable through the Avire Hub. Each input has different monitoring modes to choose from, including if the lift is in or out of service, showing when the lift is in maintenance mode, logging engineer arrival and departure and monitoring of the door open and close cycles.

Child safety in lifts

Child safety in lifts

Lifts are one of the safest forms of transportation provided that they are correctly installed, and regularly and thoroughly maintained. Every year, however, many children are harmed or killed in lifts. Young children, especially those younger than 5 years of age, often lack the strength, coordination, balance, and protective reflexes to avoid injury.

Elevator Safety, Door Edges & EN81 Lift Standards

Elevator Safety, Door Edges & EN81 Lift Standards

As of September 2017 all new lifts in Europe must comply with EN81-20 and EN81-50 Elevator Standards. These standards were approved in 2014 to replace EN81-1 and EN81-2, and after a grace period for the elevator maintenance and installation industry to prepare, these elevator standards are now mandatory for all new lifts.

EN81-20 Detectors

In August 2014 two new standards covering lift design (EN 81-20:2014) and installation requirements (EN 81-50:2014) were released in Europe. These replace EN 81-1:1998+A3:2009 and EN 81-2:1998+A3:2009, which were 15 years old and needed upgrading to comply with modern safety requirements. It is expected that the new standards will also be adopted in China, South America and Australia.
