NA7.14    Elevator Lighting and Ventilation Controls


NA7.14.1 Construction Inspection

Verify and document the following prior to functional testing:

(a)  Occupancy sensor has been located to minimize false signals.

(b)  PIR sensor pattern does not enter into the elevator lobby.

(c)  Occupancy sensors do not encounter any obstructions that could adversely affect desired performance.

(d)  Ultrasonic occupancy sensors do not emit audible sound.


NA7.14.2 Functional Testing

For each elevator cab being tested, confirm the following:

(a)  Verify that the lighting and ventilation controlled inside the elevator cab turn off after 15 minutes from the start of an unoccupied condition.

(b)  Verify that the signal sensitivity is adequate to achieve desired control. The sensor should not detect motion in the elevator lobby.

(c)                                                 Verify that lighting and ventilation immediately turn "on" when an unoccupied condition becomes occupied.

(d)                                                 Verify that the lighting and ventilation will not shut off when occupied. Stand in the elevator with the door closed and wait 15 minutes to confirm that the lighting and ventilation remain on.
