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.

Monitor the lift from the moment it sends an ‘out of service’ signal to the moment the lift engineer finishes their work with the Connex-02 module. You can also monitor the lift shaft for flooding, or remotely restart the lift from within the Avire Hub. The Connex-02 inputs and outputs are fully customisable, so they can be suited specifically to the needs of your specific lift.

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 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 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.

DCP Digital Communication Platform

The DCP combines a GSM gateway, emergency telephone and M2M gateway in a single unit. The system is AS 1735.19:2019/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.

MRP

The MRP with Navigation box brings multimedia content to elevators with quick and easy installation. Update your display without having to worry about replacing the entire COP, wiring up to the controller or having the correct lift protocol.

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.

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.

Navigation Box 02

We believe that every lift has a story to tell, it’s just a matter of how you tell it. The Navigation Box from Avire provides the insight needed to understand more about the journeys your lift has made and its usage pattern.

All you need to know about compliance and lift doors

Automated door operation is one of the most interacted with pieces of a lift. As doors are liable to hit people, unsurprisingly, they have become the number one source of lift-related lawsuits. To minimise the risk of injury, EN81-20 Standard provides guidelines to protect passengers. In this post we review how to ensure compliance and how these solutions work.

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 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

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.
