For several years the German inspection body TÜV has been using its ‘Advanced DIAgnostic System for lifts’ (ADIAS), when inspecting traction-driven lifts. The method is based on the assessment of safety-related parameters of a lift by means of special gauges, a data logger and a computer. The lift-manufacturing industry, which faces the demand for product liability, is interested to give evidence of safety parameters after installation. The new, modified version of ADIAS for manufacturers can fulfil that requirement, as it can measure, test and record all relevant lift data. It is an excellent tool to investigate and document all kind of travel, speed or acceleration curves as well as setting of the safety gear.
