ESCO - Stop and Limit Switch Assembly : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

Looking for the ESCO stop & limit Switch assembly (3-376-137). Do these parts break down to separate components? If so, does anyone have the P/N?

Hi Darcy The car top selector that I think you are looking for were either A5- A6L-A7-A8-AZ-A8MD-A9 depending on vintage and features, these were the banding tape selectors that worked better than they looked or sounded. Its a good idea to get a white paint pen and mark all the plastic strickers locations on the tape because if there is a wipe out its tough to layout again. These individual parts can be bought from a number of sources like SEES page MS-12 1800-526-0026 and I think also Certified might have these. PS WHAT IS OTIS GOING TO CALL AMTECH AFTER THEY PURCHASE IT. JIm

Dayle - We are much friendlier here in Canada. We keep everyone, just lower their wages so they can still around a case of beer :)

Thanks for the responses. I spoke with SEES, got some of what I needed to get me out of the jam.

You might try Tepco in Colorado. At one point they had a few of these "strikers" for taped ESCO selectors. I have a couple of peices of paper with some info on them if you are interested. Your best bet would be to go with an aftermarket company that makes tape selector retro-fits. It's a good (minimal) investment. Get a qualified elevator mechanic to iunstall for you and it will eliminate some of your trouble.

good luck
