What Is a Passenger Elevator?

A passenger elevator is a type of vertical transportation system that transports people or freight between floors, levels, or decks of a building, ship, or other structure. These systems may be cable-assisted, hydraulic cylinder-assisted, or roller track-assisted.

Elevator safety is an important consideration in the design and operation of elevators. Passenger elevators are subject to a number of safety codes, including the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Standard A17.1, as well as ancillary building code standards such as fire codes, electrical wiring rules, and plumbing codes.

Destination control – Some elevators, such as skyscrapers, feature a destination operating panel where passengers can register their floor calls before entering the car. This allows the computer to allocate adjacent stops to different cars in the bank, reducing travel time for each passenger.

Door open and close buttons – On some newer elevators, the doors are controlled by buttons that operate immediately, with no delay. These buttons also reopen or close the doors when a set of sensors detects a person or object in the elevator’s path.

Overload sensor – In some elevators, an overload sensor is used to shut down the elevator if it detects too much weight. This can prevent entrapment in the car, and may also trigger an alarm or voice prompt to warn passengers that the elevator is full.

Specially designed for a particular purpose – A residential elevator may be specifically designed to carry people between floors in one house or a multistory mansion, while a wheelchair elevator can be specially adapted to accommodate the mobility of disabled passengers. Another use for a passenger elevator is as a dumbwaiter, where food and other kitchen materials are transported between floors in hotels, restaurants, and cruise ships.
