Bidirectional Self-Resetting / Remote-Set Governors for Roped Hydraulic Elevators
Self-Resetting/Remote-Set Governor is designed to test the safeties from the machine room. A momentary switch on the controller trips the governor. The governor and the safeties are then unlocked by upward movement of the car.

This governor is most effective on Roped Hydraulic projects where the use of a governor access door is impossible or undesirable. Normally mounted in the overhead, this type of governor may also be mounted in the pit, when clearances allow. State and local codes for the project area must allow self-resetting/ remote-set governors without access doors. In addi­tion, certain large capacity cars or elevators with high speeds may not be able to utilize this style of gover­nor. Please contact us for more details.

Note: Not approved in some US jurisdictions. Certifications available upon request.

Governor Rope Clamp

Model GRC-2006

The Governor Rope Clamp designed for use during the 5-year test of the Governor Pull-Out and the Pull-Through to comply with A17.2-2004 part 2, Item 2.13.2 (b) (5).

The Rope Clamp two (2) plates are applied to opposite sides of the governor rope using two (2) 10" curved jaws locking pliers.
The plates are made of 6061 T-6 clear anodized aluminum. Plate dimensions: 5-1/4"L x 2.0"W x 0.75"D.

Two (2) plates and one (1) shackle are included. Locking pliers
Model 6C661 are not included but available. 

In a position best suited to lift the cable with a come-along, to ensure sufficient slack to spin the governor sheave.

The GRC-2006 can also be used during the testing of the governor pull through. Apply the GRC-2006 to the governor rope using two (2) 10" curved jaws locking pliers, (as shown) and attach your come-along and dynamometer.
Model DYN-1000 recommended.
