SensoliftTM, a new safety device for elevator doors was developed in Sensotech. The system is capable of protecting door edges from the top to the floor. It covers a volume having the shape of a cone and thus can protect both the car and the hoistway doors. The system is using an ultrasonic technology, which is accurate and very safe to use. It detects people or their belongings without having to touch them. The system is a step towards the Total Entrance Protection.
