This intermediate level course will discuss the elevator types and the emergency interfaces that are required. For years, fire alarm systems have been interfaced with elevators to provide control of the elevator in emergency situations. This interface, however, has often been the subject of much debate with shifting and conflicting code requirements through the years. The applicable code requirements will be discussed in order to determine what fire alarm emergency interfaces should be provided by an owner and designer, as well as the authority having jurisdiction who must approve these important requirements.
