OVERVIEW
The Rescue device is a versatile and simple yet very effective elevator evacuation system controller. It comprises a
single-phase sine wave inverter, a three-phase space vector modulated inverter and a state of the art battery
charger that automatically switches between four operating modes depending of the battery charge level. The
switching frequency of the inverters is 10KHz. The switching frequency of the charger is 20KHz. The four operating
modes of the charger are: trickle (for depleted batteries), bulk (for discharged batteries), float (overcharging) and
full (for maintaining battery charge). Ease of installation, adjustment and operation in addition to excellent
performance and reliability are the strong points of this controller. To maintain battery charge, the Rescue will
switch to a zero power consumption mode following a rescue operation or if it is in standby mode and the utility is
absent.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
OPERATION
The Rescue device has two operating modes: standby and ready selected by a switch on IN4, terminal P1.6:
Standby: the controller will not intervene in case of a power failure. Switching to Standby mode will abort any
rescue operation in progress. It also resets any error that occurred during a rescue operation. Of course, the
battery charging remains operational at all times as long as there is power available. The controller switches to
zero power consumption mode when the utility fails. It will automatically resume charging of batteries when the
utility is restored.
Ready: the battery charger is enabled as long as there is power available. Upon a power failure and if the DZ input
is active, the controller will not intervene for a swinging door. On the other hand, for automatic doors, the controller
will intervene after the elapse of the time set by Response to open it if the “limit switch end of opening” is not open.
If LS override delay is set different than zero, the controller will intervene in all cases and will activate the door
open for the time set. If DZ (IN2 on terminal P1.4) is not active, the controller will behave as follows and depending
of the Evacuation Mode chosen:
1. Standalone or Integrated AC2 spd: the motor contactor is energized. If the safety circuit is closed, the
contactor engages. This is detected by input IN1 on terminal P1.3. DC injection is initiated and the mechanical
brake is released (contact on terminals p2.5 and p2.6). The controller will attempt to move the elevator in both
directions and chooses the direction that draws the least amount of current to continue its travel until a floor
level is reached. The floor level is signaled by input DZ. DC injection and mechanical brake are engaged
simultaneously and after the elapse of the DZ override delay timer.
-42. Integrated VX2: this evacuation mode relies on the VX2 VVVF drive to control the elevator motor. When the DZ
becomes active, the rescue controller will take over and opens the door in case it is an automatic door.
In all cases and after completion of the evacuation cycle, the controller will switch to zero power consumption
mode. It will automatically resume normal operation and charging of batteries when the utility is restored. Please
note that it is not possible to use the diagnostic tool when the controller is in zero power consumption mode. To
enable the use of the diagnostic tool in this mode, place a jumper on JP5. To preserve the batteries, please
remember to remove this jumper when the diagnostic tool is no longer needed. If the utility is available, the
diagnostic tool will work regardless of JP5.
2.2
INSTALLATION
Wiring diagrams for the three evacuation modes with different door types are attached to this document. Implement
the proper wiring diagram depending on the evacuation mode selected and door type. Following is a hint on how to
set a few key parameters:
1. Motor Torque: starting at 60%, increase this parameter until the elevator is able to start with no load at the
highest floor, with half load at the middle floor and with full load at the lowest floor. It is advisable to use the
minimum value for this parameter that ensures on one end the starting of the elevator and on another end
holds the elevator preventing it from accelerating. A Motor Torque value larger than needed could result in
permanent damage to the Rescue controller.
2. LS override delay: should be set to zero if the IN3 (terminal P1.5) is connected to the LS_EO (limit switch
end of opening of the door). Otherwise, it should be set to a value large enough that ensures full opening
of the door.
3. DZ override delay: adjust the value of this parameter to ensure an accurate stop on the floor level. Make
sure that the door zone switches on for no less than 10cm on the floor.
2.3
EVACUATION MODES
2.3.1
STANDALONE
In this mode, the controller will operate autonomously and will perform the task of evacuation and door opening. No
connections with the elevator controller are required except for the safety circuit. No coordination with the main
elevator controller is done.
2.3.2
INTEGRATED AC2 SPD
In this mode, the evacuation is coordinated very closely with the ECBAB v3.3 elevator controller. The advantage of
such coordination is that the elevator controller keeps track of the floor information. This evacuation mode requires
that the elevator controller be powered and operational. Furthermore, it requires the connection of one control
signal from the Rescue controller (OUT1 Terminal P1.7) to the SPARE IN2 of the ECBAB v3.3 controller.
2.3.3
INTEGRATED VX2
This evacuation mode requires that a VX2 VVVF drive be installed with the ECBAB v3.3 controller. The operation
of this mode is similar to the Integrated ac2 spd mode with one exception: the VX2 powers the elevator motor and
not the Rescue controller.

ACCESSING THE MENU
To access the menu, press the right most push button on the diagnostic tool. You will be prompted to enter a
password (2802). The first digit on the left starts blinking. Use the left most push button to decrement the digit and
the middle push button to increment the digit. When the desired digit is reached, push the right most push button.
The digit is accepted and replaced by “*”. The next digit starts blinking. Repeat the above procedure for all
remaining three digits. If you have entered the right password, access to the menu will be granted, otherwise
access will be denied. Note that the push buttons have dynamic functions and their functions are at all times shown
on the lower line of the display. For convenience, entry to the menu does not require the password if it is being
accessed within 15 minutes after the last access.

BOOST TIME AND BOOST TORQUE
1. If “Boost time” is set to zero, the operation of the Rescue remains normal and the “Boost torque” is not
applied at all.
2. If “Boost time” is set to 255, the “Boost torque” is applied permanently (please avoid using this case unless
it is really necessary).
3. If “Boost time” is set between 1 and 254, the count of “Boost time” is started only after the Rescue has
finished the load test and decided on a final direction. “Boost torque” is applied from the start of the
evacuation sequence until the elapse of “Boost time”.
