1. Rope Gripper™

Since high-rise buildings and elevators became part of our living place, various kinds of elevator accidents have increasingly endangered human lives, and securing safety is highlighted as an unavoidable issue faced in our modern civilization.

Among these different kinds of elevator accidents, elevator cars leaving a floor with the doors opened or overspeeding suddenly in the up or down direction have been directly threatening our lives and safety. In order to prevent such accidents in advance, it was regulated in Canada, first in the world, to install auxiliary safety braking devices to elevators, and then it was also legislated and effective in the USA, EU, China, Korea, etc. Now, it is an international trend to proceed with legislation and intensify regulations according to the increasing significance of the safety braking devices.

Since 1996 when the acknowledgement of the prior protection against such danger was not completely matured, GumYoung General concluded an exclusive sales agreement and an technical collaboration agreement with Hollister-Whitney in the USA holding the highest technologies specialized in the field of elevator parts and equipment over 100 years. We were dedicated to the introduction of "Rope Gripper™" to the Korean market, and completed the localization of "Rope Gripper™". Now, we are manufacturing auxiliary safety braking devices for elevators with the safety and reliability of the quality secured by obtaining both CSA certificate and CE certificate uniquely in Korea.

Our "Rope Gripper™" has greatly contributed to stopping elevators to protect passengers against accidents in advance by gripping the suspension ropes when the "Rope Gripper™" gets an abnormal signal from the elevator controller caused by electrical or mechanical malfunction. Our "Rope Gripper™" is the most suitable safety braking device if an ascending or descending elevator overspeeds faster than the rated speed or the elevator leaves a floor with doors opened.

One of excellent features of the "Rope Gripper™" is to use springs along a stationary cam to obtain a mechanical advantage and apply adequate pressure to the elevator suspension ropes without any damages to elevator structures, traction machines, sheaves and others. Also, the "Rope Gripper™" is able to prevent accidents caused due to a slipping trouble between the traction sheave and ropes. This cam action causes a changing mechanical advantage and is designed to compensate for lining wear and lengthening springs, providing a constant force on the elevator ropes, even with the spring extended to less than half their original compressed

value.

The "Rope Gripper™" keeps main ropes in a proper space between two linings with grooves wore in and can be installed and operated easily. Further, even in the unlikely event of excessive lining use, the "Rope Gripper™" stops elevators immediately and safely clamping the ropes tightly. The "Rope Gripper™" activates mechanically when an emergency condition exists, and resets the system hydraulically when the abnormal condition is removed.

Our "Rope Gripper™" has been installed in high-rise and state-of-the art buildings as well, and completely prevents overspeeding and running with doors opened, which complies with elevator inspection standards, and also has received much recognition of a stable operation feature for a long time without additional maintenance after installation.

1.1 Operation

1.1.1 Open Position (Normal Status)

When the “Rope Gripper™” is in its open position, the springs are fully compressed and prevented from extending by an electric solenoid trigger mechanism. When the electric solenoid is de-energized, the springs will extend forcing the movable shoe against the ropes.

1.1.2 Gripping

When an emergency condition exists (overspeed or the elevator outside of door zone with doors opened), the contact on the elevator controller will disconnect the electric solenoid releasing the trigger mechanism, to grip the suspension rope and stop the elevator.

As the springs extend, the oil is forced from a cylinder into a tank allowing a smooth shock absorbing action.

The contact on the “Rope Gripper™” will open so that power to the elevator motor will be disconnected and/or remain disconnected until the “Rope Gripper™” is once again reset.

G U M Y O U N G G E N E R A L R

1.1.3 Resetting

To reset the “Rope Gripper™” after it has been set (gripping ropes), a contact on the elevator controller will close indicating all signals are normal. The pump motor will be energized along with the electric trigger solenoid. Then, a hydraulic dump valve is closed and oil will be pumped into the cylinder causing the springs to compress and move down the cam. The plunger will retract into the cylinder compressing the springs. When the “Rope Gripper™” reaches the open ready position, a microswitch will disconnect the pump motor and the electric solenoid will keep the brake in the open position. A contact on the “Rope Gripper™” will indicate that the elevator can run.

In the unlikely event of excessive use, the shoe lining may wear so that the shaft extends to near the end of the cam, however, a microswitch is provided which will prevent resetting of the “Rope Gripper™” and will not allow the elevator to run until the “Rope Gripper™” is re-adjusted.

As the linings wear, the rotating shaft will go higher up the cam although the springs become weaker in this condition, the mechanical advantage becomes greater allowing a constant pressure of the linings on the ropes.

1.2 Safety

An elevator “Rope Gripper TM ” is a safety braking device invented by Hollister-Whitney Elevator Corp. in U.S.A. and patented in over 10 countries including U.S.A. and Korea. Hollister-Whitney has been specialized in elevator products and equipment for over 100 years, which is one of leading companies in the elevator industry.

Hollister-Whitney obtained safety certification from CSA International in Canada where it was obliged to install elevator auxiliary safety braking devices by law, first in the world. Furthermore, the safety and reliability of the product quality was secured once again by acquiring EC Type- Examination Certificate, i.e., CE Certificate.

Since Hollister-Whitney started the sale of “Rope Gripper TM ” in 1990, the perfect function and high quality has been proved continuously. EU, Canada, and Hong Kong already regulated the installation of elevator auxiliary safety braking devices by law, and it is also under such regulation in Korea since 2000.

“Rope Gripper TM ” completely meets the requirements of the elevator inspection standards of Korea, and basically prevents accidents so that elevators can run safely and comfortably.

1.3 Superiority

“Rope Gripper TM ” is a device to protect passengers from danger and injuries due to an elevator’s overspeed caused by any failure of a brake, an elevator brake controlling system, or parts controlling the car speed in the up and down directions. If an ascending or descending elevator overspeeds suddenly or when the car leaves a floor with the doors opened due to a trouble with the traction sheave or slipped ropes, “Rope Gripper TM ” stops the elevator safely clamping main ropes, which is an epochal invention preventing elevator accidents that was unavoidable before.

The “Rope Gripper TM :

Can be installed and tested easily in any elevator system whether to be already set up or not.

Stops the car smoothly but with much force, and hardly causes damage to main ropes and

other elevator parts. Activates by force of extending springs, and resets hydraulically not to allow interference of operation.

G U M Y O U N G G E N E R A L

GUMYOUNG GENERAL

RRooppee GGrriippppeer™r

G U M Y O U N G G E N E R A L R

Stops the car safely during a power failure, and resets the system automatically placing the car on normal operation when power is restored. Detects an emergency condition and applies within 1,200mm if the car leaves a floor with doors opened. Activates only when an emergency condition exists, and linings rarely wear, which doesn’t require frequent replacement of linings.

Indicates the time for replacement of linings because of a sensor perceiving linings wear.

Patented in U.S.A., Russia, Finland, Brazil, Australia, Canada, Japan, Norway, Poland, and Korea.

Continuously proved the perfect function and high quality in various countries including U.S.A., EU, and Hong Kong for over 10 years since 1992.

1.4 Reliability

We made a technical collaboration agreement with Hollister-Whitney in 2002, and acquired the highly advanced knowledge from Hollister-Whitney related to the overall production including materials, designing, manufacturing, assembling, and testing through technical training for 72 days.

During the localization process of “Rope Gripper TM ”, we first analyzed the drawings and made the best efforts to secure high qualities of the parts so that we could pursue the security of the product quality. Also, we tried to obtain the reliability of “Rope Gripper TM ” with a sense of duty of providing customers with products that could affect human life, and closely examined the reliability through aging test of completed products.

After tower tests in Hollister-Whitney, performed twice in 2002 and 2003, met the requirements of the standards, we applied for safety certification to CSA International in Canada having the supreme authority in elevator safety certification in the world, and finally obtained the CSA certificate of compliance.

We also obtained EC type-examination certificate, i.e., CE certificate in Apr of 2004, and “Rope Gripper TM ” became the only Korean product holding both of certificates at the same time. In addition, we set up a quality management system to keep continuously stabilized qualities for customers’ safety, and we acquired ISO 9001:2000 certificate in Jul of 2004.

G U M Y O U N G G E N E R A L R

OPEN READY POSITION (keeping the “Rope Gripper™” opened)

① “Rope Gripper™” shoes are open (not grabbing the ropes).

② Power to “Rope Gripper™” is constantly maintained. (Gripper trip switch contacts (GTS &

GTSX) on the elevator controller are closed).

③ The electric trigger solenoid is magnetized by power supply and holds the “Rope Gripper™” in

the loaded position.

④ The micro switch contact on the “Rope Gripper™” is closed transmitting the signal indicating

that the elevator can run to the elevator controller.

ACTIVATION

① Power to “Rope Gripper™” is disconnected when the contacts (GTS & GTSX) on the elevator

control open.

② The electric trigger solenoid is de-energized activating the “Rope Gripper™”.

③ The micro switch contact on “Rope Gripper™” opens signaling the elevator controller to

disconnect power to the motor and machine brake circuits.

④ “Rope Gripper™” shoes close, stopping the car by grabbing the ropes.

AUTOMATIC RELOADING

① Contacts (GTS & GTSX) on the elevator controller close indicating all conditions are normal

and the “Rope Gripper™” returns from the activated position to the loaded position.

② Power is restored and oil is pumped into the cylinder by the hydraulic pump causing the

springs to compress and the shaft to move down the cam to be in the loaded position.

③ When reaching the loaded position, a contact opens disconnecting power to the hydraulic

pump.

④ The electric solenoid is energized keeping the “Rope Gripper™” when in the loaded position.

⑤ A micro switch closes allowing the elevator to run.

MANUAL OPENING

① During a power failure the “Rope Gripper™” will activate and when power is restored it will

automatically reload and put the elevator back into service. If the car is to be moved during a power outage, a manual pump is provided to open the “Rope Gripper™”.

② First, a hydraulic valve must be manually closed and then using the hand pump will move the

“Rope Gripper™” towards the loaded position releasing the ropes. If the hydraulic valve is left in the manually closed position, when power is restored a micro switch contact will prevent the elevator from running.

2.4.2 “Rope Gripper™” SUGGESTED CONTROLLER CIRCUITS (PATENTED)

The above wiring diagram shows suggested controller circuits to activate the “Rope Gripper™” and stop the car. The indicated controls are designed to conform to the requirements in CAN/CSA B-44, Clause 3.12.9 (c) and (d).

Grounding these controller circuits, the “Rope Gripper™” power supply with protective devices, and one line of contacts wired to other lines, prevents the function of the protective devices from being ineffective. All relays listed below are covered by this protection. Relays GTS and GTSX are wired in parallel with the contacts connected to the “Rope Gripper™” power supply. The failure of either relay will cause the “Rope Gripper™” to activate.

(1) DLT-Door Lock Relay Timed Contact

Closes when the door lock contact closes. The DLT opens having a slight time interval after the door lock opens (approx. 1/4 sec.). If the door lock is clipped momentarily, it prevents the “Rope Gripper™” from activating.

For conformance with CAN/CSA B-44, Clause 3.12.9 (c) and (d), if this relay fails to de- energize, the elevator must be prevented from restarting with doors open.

(2) DZ-Door Zone Relay Contact

Closes when the elevator is in the door zone where the doors can open. The DZ opens when the car leaves the door zone. For conformance with CAN/CSA B-44, Clause 3.12.9 (c) and (d), this relay should be monitored so that if it fails to operate in the intended manner, the elevator must be prevented from restarting.

(3) PF-Power Relay Contact

Opens approximately 30 seconds after power is provided, and allow GTS to keep self holding. This relay is de-energized during inspection operation and energizes approximately 30 seconds after the inspection mode is changed for the automatic operation. This will allow an automatic reset to be possible avoiding a nuisance manual reset when a mechanic comes out of the car after placing the station, on top of the car, in the automatic operation.

G U M Y O U N G G E N E R A L R

(4) GTS & GTSX - “Rope Gripper™” Trip Switch & Auxiliary Relays

Both relays are energized for normal operation and de-energized to activate “Rope Gripper™” (gripping the ropes). When an overspeed occurs, or when the car leaves the floor(door zone) with the doors open, the “Rope Gripper™” operates. At this time, GTS should reset the relay by a push button or manually to prevent the car from running until a mechanic inspects and resets the relay.

NOTE : The CAN/CSA B-44 code requires activation of the “Rope Gripper™” when the ascending car overspeeds. For further safety, the circuits shown above were designed to operate the “Rope Gripper™” overspeeding in both the up and down directions.

2.5.3 TESTS AND CHECKS AFTER INSTALLATION

(1) Test

1) With the Pump Unit valve stem turned to the automatic position and test switch on, the “Rope Gripper™” should be in the ready position not clamping the ropes.

2) Turn off the test switch. This activates the “Rope Gripper™” and clamps the ropes. Be sure, when clamping the ropes, that contacts on the “Rope Gripper™” stop or prevent power from being applied to the motor and machine brake.

3) Turn the valve stem in the Pumping Unit to the manual operation. The manual microswitch contact should open preventing the elevator from running. Turn the valve stem back to automatic and the manual contact should close allowing the elevator to run.

(2) Testing All Circuits

The following three tests should be made while the car is running in slow speed. Test both the up and down directions. During each test the “Rope Gripper™” should

A. Grab the ropes

B. Stop the Car

C. Open the control safety circuits disconnecting power to the motor and machine brake

1) Turn off the pump test switch and observe A, B, and C above. 2) With the car outside of the door zone, open the door or open the door lock circuit and observe A, B, and C above (SEE NOTE※). 3) Manually open the governor overspeed switch and observe A, B, and C (SEE NOTE※).

NOTE : The control circuits may require a manual reset before the “Rope Gripper™” reloads. The “Rope Gripper™” is now ready for operation.

(3) Fluid Level

With the “Rope Gripper™” in the loaded position, the level should be approximately 1" up the

dipstick.

(4) Gripper Lubrication

Apply a thin layer of a general purpose grease lubricant to the cam surface, the trigger and latch

With the solenoid energized and the trigger resting on the latch, the solenoid plunger should slightly touch the trigger. Lift the trigger to check for play. If there is play, loosen the lock nut and turn the allen head screw until play is just removed.

2.5.4 LINING WEAR IN (* It must be done.)

(1) Reason for Lining Wear-in:

Unless linings wear properly deep by force, there can be little contact surface between the linings and ropes, and the ropes may not be prevented from sliding during the operation of the “Rope Gripper™”.

For the best setting between linings and ropes considering the diameter and pitch of the

G U M Y O U N G G E N E R A L

GUMYOUNG GENERAL

RRooppee GGrriippppeer™r

G U M Y O U N G G E N E R A L R

elevator's main rope, lining wear in should be done according to the following simple procedure after the installation of " Rope Gripper™ "

(2) Procedure of Lining Wear-in:

1) Run the car in the slow speed from top to the bottom.

2) At this time, wipe down the ropes removing dirt or excess oil and grease.

3) Jump terminals RG5 to RG6.

4) Run the car in slow speed from top to bottom with the test switch "OFF".

5) The “Rope Gripper™” will clamp the ropes with a light pressure and the linings will begin to wear. As the linings wear, the rotating shaft will move backwards in its slot and will turn the corner and begin to move up the cam as shown.

2.5.5 LINING REPLACEMENT (ADJUSTING AND MAINTENANCE)

As the lining wears, the rotating shaft will move towards the end of the cam. Near the end, the excessive wear microswitch contact will open and the “Rope Gripper™” will not automatically reload.

Lining Replacement

① Reload the “Rope Gripper™” using manual operation. ② Once in the loaded position the security set screws should be installed and tightened so they touch the rotating shaft. ③ For new linings follow the procedure under [2. Installation of “Rope Gripper™”] ④ The existing lining can be used by removing the bolts that hold the blocks to the movable shoe, placing lining wear shim spacers under the blocks and reinstalling and tightening the bolts. ⑤ With the movable shoe connected and the valve stem in the automatic position, turn "ON" the Pumping Unit and carefully remove the security set screws. Use hand pump if necessary so that rotating shaft does not move backward when removing the security set screws. The “Rope Gripper™” is now ready for operation with the rotating shaft in position near the bottom of the cam. ⑥ When needed, be sure new linings are installed as soon as possible.

2.5.6 Safety Test Procedure

- For compliance with Canadian CAN/CSA-B44-94, B44-96, B44-2000 safety code for elevators

(1) Power Interruption Test

Run the car at a slow speed and turn off the toggle switch on the side of the Pumping Unit, and this will activate the “Rope Gripper TM ” disconnecting power to it and causing it to clamp the main ropes and stop the car. When the “Rope Gripper TM ” is activated, the “ELEVATOR CAN RUN” microswitch will open and signal the controls to interrupt power to the driving motor and machine brake. Then, the elevator C/P using the contact can notice the operating condition of the “Rope Gripper TM ”.

(2) Ascending Car Overspeed Test

With an empty car, overspeed the car in the up direction while keeping the machine brake open, and the governor overspeed switch will activate the “Rope Gripper TM ”. The “Rope Gripper TM ” will stop the car before the counterweight strikes the buffer or at least reduce the car speed to the speed for which the buffer is designed. If it is impractical to overspeed the car, run the car up empty at a high speed with the machine brake held open and manually trip the governor overspeed switch. The “Rope Gripper TM ” will cause the car to slow down and stop. The governor can then be tested to make sure the governor switch opens at the correct overspeed setting.

* Caution : When overspeeding, please check if the governor overspeed switch activates properly.

from any lift component that, during normal operation, controls the speed or retardation, or stops the car, unless there is builtin redundancy. A mechanical linkage to the car, whether or not such linkage is used for any other purpose, may be used to assist in this performance.

9.10.3 The means shall not allow a retardation of the empty car in excess of 1gn during the

stopping phase.

9.10.4 The means shall act:

a) to the car; or

b) to the counterweight; or

c) on the rope system (suspension or compensating);or

d) on the traction sheave (e. g. on the sheave directly or on the same shaft in the immediate

vicinity of the sheave).

9.10.5 The means shall operate an electric safety device in conformity with 14.1.2 if it is

engaged.

9.10.6 When the means has been activated its release shall require the intervention of a

competent person.

9.10.7 The release of the means shall not require the access to the car or the counterweight.

9.10.8 After its release, the means shall be in a condition to operate.

9.10.9 If the means requires external energy to operate, the absence of energy shall cause the

lift to stop and keep it stopped. This does not apply for guided compressed springs.

9.10.10 The speed monitoring element of the lift to cause the ascending car overspeed

protection means to actuate shall be, either; a) a governor conforming to the requirements of 9.9; or b) a device conforming to 9.9.1, 9.9.2, 9.9.3, 9.9.7, 9.9.8.1, 9.9.9, 9.9.11.2, and where equivalence to 9.9.4, 9.9.6.1, 9.9.6.2, 9.9.6.5, 9.9.10 and 9.9.11.3 is assured.

9.10.11 The ascending car overspeed protection means is regarded as a safety component

and shall be verified according to the requirements in F.7.
