RTS User Guide

  • The sensor must be attached to each rope as shown in the figure. Suitable for ropes 6-12 mm in diameter.

  • Elevator cabin is aligned to a position where the technician can reach both the cabin and counter – weight ropes on the cabin.

  • The sensor is attached to the Centa control unit, and ceroing procedure is performed before attaching the sensor to the ropes, and absolutely no other address is entered.

  • Values of all the ropes are written down one by one. All these values are added and the total value is divided by the number of ropes.

  • All the ropes over the cabin are adjusted according to this final value. Whilst applying this procedure, the measurement must be repeated retrospectively; as during the adjustment of one rope, value of the other could be changed. 

  • Without changing the position of the cabin and the weight above, same procedure could be applied for the ropes above the counter – weight.

  • The tensions in the cabin and counter – weight can be di­fferent, what’s more important is that the sum of both side must be identical with other ropes.

  • Applied to the elevators with 1:2 suspension system including ropes that go to measurement fix points.

  • When the sum of the valuen of the cabin side and counter weight side are equalised, the adjusting is finished.
