Federal Elevator Handicap Lift or Residence Lift -Suggested Installation Schedule

The time taken to install these units will vary from project to project and will be dependent upon the
following factors.
C The number of floors served
C The orientation of the unit, (Type A, B, C, OR D)
C If auto or manual door operation is selected
C The site conditions, and the experience of the installing team
C Whether entrances are installed by elevator contractor or by others.

It is very important that supervisors visit the site to verify all dimensions are correct and all services are
available before the installing crew commences. If scaffold and power are not available then the job
should not be started. Normally scaffold is required on day one and power is required to run the unit at
the end of day one or beginning of day two.

If possible make sure the contractor will be available to frame in around the entrances when required
(usually day three - four).

Installation Procedure
Install the guide rail brackets in the hoistway. The rails are attached with through bolts or anchors. For
anchors, solid or concrete filled blocks are required. Through bolting can be used on concrete blocks
or wooden structures.There are a minimum of three rail brackets, if installing a cable-hydraulic unit,
plus two small ones of special design. One of these brackets is designed to attach near the top of the
pillar and the other is designed to hold the top of the hydraulic cylinder. All the brackets are to be
positioned at the spacings shown on the shop drawings.
A plan view of the location of the brackets is shown on the shop drawings.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE
BECAUSE OF THE CLOSE TOLERANCES REQUIRED WITH THIS EQUIPMENT THE PLACEMENT
OF THE GUIDE RAIL BRACKETS IS CRITICAL AS THERE IS LITTLE OR NO ADJUSTMENT ONCE
THE RAILS ARE ATTACHED, THEREFORE YOU SHOULD PLUMB THE RAIL BRACKETS AS
ACCURATELY AS POSSIBLE BEFORE THE INSTALLATION OF THE GUIDE RAILS.
Plumbing Of Rail Brackets
To plumb the rails one must first determine the tightest point in the hoistway from the centre of the bracket to the hoistway
wall. This will ensure that the car will have a clear hoistway when it is installed later. A plumb line is then dropped down
this point the entire length of the hoistway and marked. At the same time the centre of all the rail brackets are also marked.
The bracket centre points are lined up with the plumb line in the hoistway at their respective heights(see shop drawings) and
installed. NOTE: After the installation is complete but before it is given to the owner for its use, the rails should be pinned
to all the brackets by drilling and inserting a 1/4" bolt with flat washer, lock washer and nut at each bracket location.

2. Install the pit baseplate. This plate is to be secured to the floor after the installation of the car frame
and fixing of the guide rails, ensure floor is clean and level before placing.

Installation Of Rails
3. Install and plumb the guide rails. There is little
adjustment on the brackets as per the above
instructions.VERY IMPORTANT: You have been
provided with 2 sets of rail dead stops. The set with
the chain attached to them must be installed at
approximately 5’6” from the bottom of the pit.
The other set has to be installed at the highest point
of the rails. THIS MUST BE DONE AT THIS POINT
PRIOR TO CONTINUING WITH THE INSTALLATION.

4. Place the pillar on the pillar base and clamp to


the pillar bracket provided. A more detailed view
of this assembly can be seen in figure 1.
Note: If the travel, pit and overhead are the same
as those in the shop drawings, sheet 3 of 4, then
the pillar has been already cut to the correct size
needed for roping. If the pit or travel are
significantly different then the pillar height may Fig.1
have to be altered accordingly.

5. By inserting the cylinder mounting attachment (pillar
cap) into the top of the pillar the cylinder is now ready
to be installed. This pillar cap is manufactured off-centre.
Install it so that the cylinder is closer to the wall and
to the right when looking at it from the platform.

6. Attach the flow control valve and the oil line hose; note
that the outlet is to be facing to the rear and towards the
dead end of the ropes as seen in Figure 2. This must be
done prior to installing the cylinder. Free flow must go
to the cylinder and controlled flow to the pump unit.
As well, ensure that the air bleeder at the top of the cylinder Fig.2
is facing to the front and to the side so as not interfere
with the car frame.

7. Install the cylinder on to the pillar cap. Attach the top of


the cylinder to the cylinder/rail bracket provided (see
Figure 3.) ensuring that the clamp is approximately 5
inches below the cylinder head. Hand tighten the clamp
but do not plumb the cylinder yet. Install the sheave
assembly. Note that this assembly must be installed so
that the cylinder is off-centre towards the wall and to the
right (see note 5 above). Adjust the pillar bracket as neces-
sary to plumb the cylinder. Tighten up the cylinder bracket.
Fig.3
8. Before roping, the finished sling will have to be located
at the under travel distance below the lowest landing.
This distance is where the sling should be blocked off
at for roping later on. (See Figure 4.)

9. The next item to install are the cross braces on the


bottom of the sling. The guide shoes should have a
clearance of 1/32" between each guide and rail face.
Once the clearances are checked the cross braces and
cross pieces can be tightened. Ensure that both legs of
the sling are level and that the distance between the
legs is constant.

10. Check to ensure the piston follower guide shoes are


correctly adjusted. We recommend that they not be Fig.4
tightened until after the elevator has been ran up and
down the hoist way a few times.

11. Next install the rope shackles through the holes provided in the steel tee section on the pit base
plate and lace the two 3/8" cables through the shackles, leaving 8" to 10" of rope tails, attach
crosbies and cotter pins provided (See page 23 of this manual).

12. Pass the ropes over the sheave on the piston and back down behind the car sling to rest on the pit
floor. Do not connect the ropes to the car sling at this stage.

Should You Wish To Install The Carframe And Ropes Before Operating The Pump/ Motor The
Piston May Have To Be Extended Manually And A Spacer Will Need To Be Placed To Obtain
The Required Height.

13. Install the hydraulic power unit (see drawing on page 25) and fix the electric control panel to the
machine room wall. Verify that the electrical supply is as required by the specifications and is
compatible with the supplied equipment. Be sure to connect the neutral. Connect temporary
controls to the temporary connections provided in the controller.

14. Read the wiring diagram before connecting motor and other equipment to the supply. A disconnect
switch must be installed in the machine room to local requirements. Connect motor and valve to
controller as shown on electrical prints. Connect main power and power to controller.

15. Connect the hydraulic hose line to the tank unit. It is recommended that you use Teflon tape on all
fittings. Be careful not to block passage of oil with excess tape.

16. Fill the tank unit with Grade 32 hydraulic oil making sure the oil will cover the pump/motor unit
completely. Check oil level again after the oil is pumped to the hydraulic cylinder

*** Before Starting The Pump ***


Close the gate valve on the tank unit
Set the pressure relief valve to the minimum
Ensure all the hydraulic line fittings are correctly attached
Check that the motor is rotating in right direction

17. Push the contactors on the controller briefly to establish correct rotation of motor/pump unit. It is
important to note that prolonged running of the pump in the wrong direction will cause damage to
the pump unit.

WARNING
It Is Advisable To Have More Than One Person On Site During This Start-Up Stage To Observe When
The Cylinder Commences To Move Or If Any Line Joint Leakage Is Apparent.

18. With the gate valve still closed start motor, and slowly adjust pressure relief valve until it reads
25 kpa. Stop the motor and open the gate valve on the tank unit.

19. Start the motor once again and slowly the oil will be pumped to the cylinder from the tank, the time
taken for the oil to reach the cylinder can vary with each installation.

20. To bleed the air from the cylinder, with the system under pressure and the cylinder collapsed,
slowly open the bleeder screw which is located at the top of the cylinder, close when all the air
has been evacuated and the oil starts to exit. Caution: if the bleeder is opened too fast a rush of
oil will come out of it.

21. Install the two rope shackles through the holes provided on the attachment plate and lace the cables
through the cables leaving 8" to 10" (203mm to 254mm) of rope tails, do not cut the excess cable at
this stage (See page 23 of this manual).

22. The first bottom rail dead stop should have already been installed prior to this point as per item 3 of
the manual, to prevent any accidents. To drill the second hole drop the sling onto the first rail
dead stop.Measure and drill the second hole and install the second unit.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
The Car Sling Will Reach The Upper Most Floor Level With Some Over Travel

Run The Car Up Slowly Until Sheave Assembly Hits The Rail Stops

Car Sling And Follower Should Not Touch At Top Landing

Car Sling And Follower Should Not Extend Past Top Of Rails

23. The next step is to install the top rail dead stops. These will prevent the sheave assembly from
traveling past the top of the rails.

24. Lower the car by turning the emergency down valve located on the valve control block, you may
wish to run the unit up and down the hoistway a few times to eliminate any remaining air. Bleed
the cylinder again.

25. With the car at a comfortable working height near the pit, the adjustment of the safety device can be
carried out. The safety rollers and block, although checked and preset in our factory before ship-
ment may require further adjustment on site.

NOTE:

DO NOT INSTALL CAB UNTIL THE SAFETIES ARE FULLY


OPERATIONAL AND WEDGE SOCKETS IN CAB ARE ADJUSTED.

26. (a)To adjust the safety device a load is required on the car sling, this is to compress the rope springs
and allow the safety activating plate to be fully returned to its normal position. With the springs
compressed and the plate in the normal position there should be a gap of around 1/16" between
the knurled roller and the face of the guide rail, this should be the same for both sides. If any
adjustment is required this can be achieved by loosening the screw and rotating until the re-
quired gap is attained. On completion of the adjustment make sure the screws are tightened.
(b)Fix and adjust the safety/ slack cable switch bracket under the car sling to activate when rope
extends and operates the lever arm. The sling requires a load until the car walls are installed.
Otherwise the safety device may activate.The safety/slack cable switch is attached and prewired
to the control wall.
(c)To test the safety device run the car down and gently pull down lever arm, this will activate
safety rollers and elevator will stop. To release safety device run car in the up direction.
(d)With the springs fully collapsed, the threaded rods on the wedge sockets should be no more than
3/8" from the safety activating plate.

27. The hoisting cables excess may now be cut off; do not forget to attach the crosbies and cotter
pins provided.

NOTE: Your are ready now to start installing the platform and cab. We recommend that this work be done
prior to the hall entrances being installed.

28. Raise the sling assembly to a sufficient point where the platform can be lifted onto the cantilever
arms with the least of difficulty.

29. Place platform on the cantilever arms with the tabs on the underside of the platform aligned with
wall is 10". This should give you a gap of approximately 2" between the platform and the sling
upright.

30. Lock the cantilever arms in place by using the rail block provided.

31. From the underside of the platform insert the 3/8" hex head bolts through the tabs on the under-
side of the platform as they line up with the punched elongated holes on the cantilever arms.

32. Using the above noted bolts, appropriate nuts and washers provided hand tighten
the platform to the cantilever arms. Ensure that the platform is level in both directions and the
running clearance indicated in the General Layout is achieved at the floor sills.

NOTE: Do not firmly tighten the platform at this time as you will have to make adjustments in
your running clearances during further installation procedures later.

33. Place the control wall on the platform and line up the pre-drilled holes on the platform with the
holes drilled in the 1" tube on the back side at the bottom of the control wall. Release the
traveling cable from the back of the car station and drop it to the pit by ensuring that it passes to
the left of the safety switch bracket.

The traveling cable is long enough to go all the way to the controller after being attached to the half-way
point in the hoistway. Release the limit switches from the back of the car station. Bring them over the top
of the wall to the inside of the cab for now until you have the wall secured in place and then you can
mount them on to the brackets provided that are attached to the top of this wall. Ensure that the limit
switch wires (or flex for a public building installation) do not cross over the back of the car station as
they have been pre-assembled and tested.Attach the safety/slack cable switch to its bracket. Adjust it so
that its lever arm is operated when the cables become slack.

34. Align the tabs on the upper portion of the control wall with the tabs welded to the stiles.

35. Using the ½” x 6" threaded rods provided secure a ½” nut and washer on either side of each tab. Adjust-
ing the nuts in or out will allow you to keep the critical 2" clearance between the edge of the platform
and the stiles.

36. With the control wall in place you can now set the back wall in place. NOTE: if you have a type B cab
go directly to step # 13.

37. Align the pre-drilled holes on the platform with the holes drilled in the 1" tubing on the lower portion of
the back wall. Place the 1/4" bolts provided through the 1" tube as well as the platform and secure hand
tight.

38. Align the pre-drilled holes on the upper portion of the side wall and the control wall and fasten with the
4" x 1/4" bolts provided. Repeat this procedure for the holes on the lower portion of the wall.

39. You may now attach the side wall by repeating the procedure in item #11.

40. Align the tie bar ceiling angles mounted on the back of the tie bar with the holes drilled in the side wall
and control wall ceiling angles. Use the 2" x 1/4" bolts to secure the ceiling tie bar at each end. Repeat
this procedure if your platform style is a type B.

41. Once all the fasteners are in place, proceed to square the cab so it is as plumb as possible. At this time
secure all the fasteners so the cab is rigid.

42. Install all the switches on top of the cab by matching the legend in the limit switch with the legend in the
bracket provided. All switches have been pre-assembled at the shop. Move the limit switches back on to
the cab so that they will not be activated by the cams provided until the cams have been assembled.

43. If your cab has a gate, install it at this time. Remember that the gate has been pre-assembled so all holes
will line up.

44. Install the limit switch cams on to the rails. They are all marked as to the floor they correspond. By
using the temporary controls, move the cab on the constant pressure mode to each level and move the
switches out on to the cams so that you ensure that the limit switches are properly activated at each
landing. To verify that the anti-creep switch is working properly after all switches and cams have been
finally adjusted, place the lift at any floor and lower it by using the manual lowering valve. Elevator
should re-level after traveling ½” down.

NOTE: At both terminal floors, elevator stops on limit switches. Set the stops by adjusting these switches.

45. Install the cab ceiling and the lighting system.

46. If your platform does not have the finished floor attached, proceed to attach it now.

Installing Landing Doors Supplied By Federal Elevator Systems Inc.

47. Installation of the landing doors can now be carried out. A maximum running clearance of 5/8" is required
between the car sill and the landing sill.

48. If provided by Federal Elevator Systems Inc. the entrances are delivered as a single unit incorporating the
door frame, the door, the inter-lock and the built in hall station. It is recommended the car cab be built
before installation of the landing doors. This will allow the exact positioning of the doors and frame in
relationship with the cab entrance.

49. Bring the elevator to the required floor level. Next move the entrance to the front of the cab and position it,
allowing for the running clearance (see shop drawings) between the car sill and door frame, secure the steel
sill to the floor with the screws provided. You will note that on the top of the door frame there are two
square attachment plates with a hole in each, by inserting a bolt in these you can attach the frame to the
supplied mounting brackets which in turn can be secured to the building structure.

50. The distance between the actual interlock and the side of the car frame is around 5/16", ensure you have this
as a minimum dimension (see also Fig.5 )

51. Install the door cam to the car (see Figure 6 next page) and proceed to adjust the door locks, if more
than two doors per side, start with the intermediate floors and finish with the terminal floors.

Fig.5
52. Attach the two steel rail dead stop safety blocks to the guide rails in the holes drilled in the rails, for your
safety. Use these pins each time when working under the elevator.

ATTENTION
DO NOT FORGET TO REMOVE THESE PINS BEFORE RUNNING THE CAR

53. Install car ceiling and all stickers as per code.

54. Install full load and check speed of platform lift.

55. Carry out valve adjustments as per instructions in this manual. Keep in mind that
dirt is the most common enemy of a properly operating hydraulic circuit. Orifices and
internal channels in the valve can be obstructed and impair or severely affect the control
valve.

56. Perform A Safety Test as per page 22 of this manual.


.
57. If your Pump Unit is provided with Low Pressure Switch, you might have to adjust it if
your lift stops intermittently in the down direction. To adjust it, remove wire cap on
switch, remove brass screw and insert an Allen key. By turning counterclockwise, you
will be able to reduce the cut-off pressure.Do a quarter turn and verify operation.
Continue until intermittent operation is no longer present.

SAFETY TEST PROCEDURE

NOTES: IF THIS IS A FULL LOAD TEST ENSURE THAT THE FULL RATED CAPACITY
EQUIVALENT IS ON THE PLATFORM IN THE FORM OF TEST WEIGHTS.

IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO REMOVE THE CEILING TILES PRIOR TO COMMENCING THIS


TEST.
1) CALL THE ELEVATOR TO THE SECOND LANDING. USING THE HOISTWAY ACCESS
DEVICE ENTER THE HOISTWAY AT THE FIRST LANDING. TURN OFF THE PIT SWITCH.

2) PLACE A 4" X 4" WOODEN POST UPRIGHT ON THE PIT FLOOR. THIS POST IS TO BE CUT
TO THE APPROPRIATE TEST LENGTH. LOWER THE ELEVATOR ON TO THE 4" X 4" PROP
AND ALLOW THE HOISTING CABLE(S) TO BECOME SLACK BY APPROXIMATELY 6 INCHES.
THIS CAN BE ACCURATELY DETERMINED BY MARKING THE SHEAVE GUIDE POSITION ON
THE WALL. THE ROPE IS 2:1 THEREFORE WHEN THE PISTON HAS MOVED DOWNWARD
INCHES YOU HAVE ACHIEVED 6 INCHES OF SLACK ROPE.

3) EXIT THE HOISTWAY AND SECURE THE LOWEST LANDING DOOR IN THE OPEN POSITION.

4) IF YOU WISH TO MEASURE THE SAFETY STOPPING DISTANCE MARK THE LOCATION OF
THE PLATFORM SURFACE ON A CONVENIENT REFERENCE SURFACE ( A PENCIL MARK ON
THE DOOR FRAME WORKS WELL AND CAN BE REMOVED).

5) USE ANOTHER LENGTH OF WOOD TO KNOCK THE 4" X 4" SUPPORT OUT FROM UNDER
THE CAR SLING BY HITTING THE PROP AT IT’S BASE. THE CAR WILL COME TO REST
ALMOST IMMEDIATELY ON THE CAR SAFETIES. THE ROPES WILL REMAIN SLACK. THIS
WILL HAVE DEMONSTRATED THE ABILITY OF THE SAFETIES TO STOP AND HOLD THE
GROSS LOAD.

6) IF YOU WISH TO MEASURE THE STOPPING DISTANCE MEASURE THE DISTANCE BETWEEN
THE “REST” POSITION OF THE PLATFORM AND THE ORIGINAL REFERENCE LINE MADE.

7) RE-SET THE SAFETIES BY DRIVING THE ELEVATOR IN THE UP DIRECTION.


THIS WILL ALSO RE-SET THE SAFETY PLANK SWITCH.

8) VERIFY THAT THE CABLE(S), CABLE FASTENING(S), AND SAFETIES HAVE RETURNED TO
THEIR PROPER POSITIONS AND REMOVE ALL PLATFORM SUPPORTING PROPS (AND ANY
OTHER MATERIALS NOT NORMALLY IN THE PIT) FROM THE PIT. INSPECT ALL EQUIP-
MENT TO ENSURE THAT PROPER CONDITIONS EXIST.

9) TURN ON THE PIT SWITCH AND CLOSE THE BOTTOM DOOR. TEST THE COMPLETE
OPERATION OF THE ELEVATOR AND, WHEN SATISFIED, RETURN THE ELEVATOR
TO SERVICE.

INSTRUCTIONS TO REPLACE SEALS IN HYDRAULIC CYLINDER

PRIOR TO PROCEEDING TO CHANGE SEALS, LOOK FOR MARKS IN THE


PISTON. IF FOUND, SAND THEM UNTIL THE SURFACE OF THE PISTON IS
SMOOTH AND FREE OF PROTRUSIONS THAT COULD CUT THE SEALS.
ONLY AFTER YOU ARE SATISFIED THAT THIS HAS BEEN DONE, FOLLOW
THESE STEPS:

1. LIFT THE CAR UP TO HAVE ENOUGH ROOM FOR REMOVING THE CYLINDER HEAD
AND CHANGE THE SEALS.

2. SECURE THE CAR IN PLACE USING THE RAIL STOPS PROVIDED. ONCE THE CAR IS
SECURELY IN PLACE, REMOVE POWER TO THE PUMP UNIT BY TURNING POWER
OFF AT THE DISCONNECT SWITCH.
3. UNSCREW THE BOLT THAT HOLDS THE PISTON TO THE CAR.
4. OPEN THE MANUAL LOWERING VALVE UNTIL THE PISTON IS FULLY RETRACTED.
5. CLOSE THE SHUT-OFF VALVE AT THE PUMPING UNIT TO ENSURE THAT OIL WILL
NOT COME OUT.
6. DISCONNECT THE LEECH CONNECTOR AND LINE.
7. REMOVE THE HEAD: IN CASE OF BOLTED HEAD, USE TWO BOLTS AND SCREW
THEM IN THE HOLES LOCATED TO EACH SIDE OF THE HEAD SO THAT IT WILL BE
EASY TO REMOVE THE HEAD. IN CASE OF SCREWED HEAD, USE CHAIN ?VISE-
GRIP? TO UNSCREW COUNTERCLOCKWISE.
8. IN CASE OF SCREWED HEAD, UNSCREW THE BRASS GLAND.
9. REMOVE THE OLD SEALS, INSTALL THE NEW SEALS AND PUT A LOT OF GREASE
ON THEM.
10. IN CASE OF SCREWED HEAD, RE-SCREW TO MAXIMUM THE GLAND WITH NO
SPACE BETWEEN THE GLAND AND THE HEAD.
11. REPLACE AND GREASE THE O’RINGS.
12. REINSTALL THE HEAD.
13. CLOSE THE MANUAL LOWERING VALVE.
14. REINSTALL LEECH CONNECTOR AND LINE ON THE HEAD.
15. OPEN THE SHUT-OFF VALVE OF THE PUMPING UNIT.
16. TURN POWER ?ON? AT THE DISCONNECT SWITCH.
17. RAISE THE PISTON WITH ADEQUATE HEIGHT.
18. OPEN THE BLEEDER VALVE UNTIL OIL APPEARS AND CLOSE TIGHTLY BY HAND.
19. RE-ATTACH PISTON TO CAR .
20. TEST CYLINDER BY RAISING AND LOWERING CAR AT LEAST 10 TIMES AND
VERIFYING THAT NO SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF OIL IS COMING THROUGH THE
SEALS.
