- Work involving electrical equipment should
only be carried out by an electrical engineer or Safety devices that can only be adjusted after
qualified personnel. installation should be done so immediately after
installation.

1.4 Preparation Operation of safety devices installed ex-works

account all the given circumstances and plan the
various operational sequences in advance rather
than carrying them out prematurely and in a ran-
dom manner.
On receipt of the delivery, the goods or compo-
nents should be checked for correctness and com-
pleteness with the order sheet.

The following should also be checked:


- that the factory and order number correspond
- that the details on the name plate correspond
to those on the order
- the elevator speed
- the elevator travel height
- the rope wheel diameter fits to the overspeed
governor rope

5 Maintenance, inspection and repair


5.1 Maintenance and inspection

Refer to “Section 8.11 Periodic inspec- • Check the elongation and condition of the
tions and tests” of the ASME A17.1. governor rope (refer to the Chapter “Carrying
out repairs”)
The overspeed governor is maintenance free. The • Check the flyweights (performance of the
whole installation is designed so that no large springs, proper operation/movement)
maintenance operations need to be carried out
during damage free operation of the installation.

N
The frequency of periodic inspections and tests
shall be established by the authority having juris-
diction (recommended intervals twice a year with
each service) to guarantee safe operation.

N
Alterations, damage or other irregularities should touching
be reported, and repaired if possible. Frequent open by hand
servicing and control checks not only make opera-
tion of the installation safer, but also ensure long
and reliable service. It is recommended that con-
trol checks and servicing be carried out before
legally prescribed functional tests.

The elevator installation must be immedi-


ately taken out of use should any damage MUST close easily
or irregularities arise which could possibly by themselves
impair operational safety.

Please contact WITTUR if you have any • Check the axial movement of the flyweights

Maintenance work should be carried out
with utmost care in order to guarantee
safe installation operation.

at every service visit, at least once a year.

Turn contact plate by hand so that contact

able to drive the elevator.

Lubrication will reduce the braking force of


the overspeed governor and therefore it is
strictly prohibited to lubricate any part of
the governor or the governor rope!

5.1.2 Brake force of the OL35-NA governor

Setting of brake force (pull through force):


The brake force of the overspeed governor is
adjusted in the factory to 168 lbf ± 22 lbf
(750N±100N). The maximum allowed tolerance
even during its lifetime is 168 lbf ± 56 lbf
(750N±250N). This means that according to ASME
A17.1 the maximum required lifting force to
operate the safety gear is 67 lbf (300N), (60% of
the pull-through tension developed by the gover-
nor).

Influences that will reduce the brake force:


a) Lubrication inside the brake
b) Wear of the brakelining (see lifetime of the
brake)
c) Damaged or broken plate spring

Lifetime of the brake:


a) Maximum 250 turns with maximum 15 turns
per test
b) If more than 10 turns per test, the brake of the
governor must cool off for a minimum of 30
minutes.

Overspeed Governor OL35-NA Datum/date 07.11.2002

Operating instructions Geprüft/approved WAT/MZE

Measuring the brake (pull through) force:

a) Detach the safety gear lever (1) from the rope


anchorage (2)
b) Fasten a clamp (3) with a force gauge (4) to
the governor rope
c) Open the flyweight by hand (see mark A) as
long as they are going in contact with the trip
wheel shown at mark B.
d) Pull down the force gauge in the tripping
direction as long as the governor pulley or/and
the governor rope starts to move.
e) The shown value must be higher then 112 lbf
(500N).

If the brake force is smaller than 112 lbf


(500N), the overspeed governor must be
replaced!

5.1.3 Sliding force of the rope

If in the process of measuring the brake


force, the governor rope moves while the
pulley does not move, then the sliding
force of the rope inside the V-groove is
already smaller than the adjusted brake
force. This situation is acceptable as long as
the brake force is larger than 112 lbf
(500N).

Normally, with unworn V-groove, the sliding force


of the rope is higher than 225 lbf (1000N).
Conclusion: Sliding force of the rope min. 112 lbf
(500N).

The following repairs should be carried out on site


by qualified service personnel:

• Tensioning the governor rope
