Lift Terminology
Introduction:
Braun L915 Millennium Series
lifts are ADA compliant and
commercial oriented (intended for
operation by an attendant). The
L915 Millennium Lift Series
includes variations of lift models
L915, L916, L917, L918 and
L919. Model numbers indicate
lift dimensions and options.
Lift model numbers with suffix
“IB” are equipped with an automatic mechanical inboard roll
stop that also serves as the
bridge plate (shown in the Lift
Terminology Illustration on page
6). Lift model numbers without
suffix “IB” feature a combination
stationary inboard roll stop with
an independent hinged bridge
plate. Inboard roll stop and
Page 2
bridge plate details follow.
L915 Series lift models can be
equipped with left or right side
pump modules as needed. Lift
model numbers with suffix “F” are
right side (front) pump-equipped
and model numbers without suffix
“F” are equipped with a left side
(rear) pump. Left side pumpequipped lift models are depicted
in both Lift Terminology Illustrations. Right side pump lift
models are a mirrored image of
rear pump models (pump module
located on opposite end of base
plate).
Refer to the Lift Terminology
Illustrations for the visual differences in lift configurations and
identification of lift components.
Lift operation procedures are
identical for all L915 Series lift
models. The operating instructions contained in this manual
and appearing on lift-posted
operating instructions decals
address the lift control switches
and the corresponding lift functions. Instructions are provided
for manual operation of the lift in
event of power or equipment
failure.
Terminology: Become familiar
with the terminology that will be
used throughout this manual.
Become familiar with the identification of lift components and
their functions. Contact your lift
sales representative or call The
Braun Corporation at 1-800-THE
LIFT if any of this information is
not fully understood.
Lift Terminology
Direction: The terms "left (rear),"
"right (front)," "inboard," and
"outboard" will be used throughout this manual to indicate
direction (as viewed from outside
the vehicle looking directly at the
lift). Refer to the Lift Terminology
Illustrations for clarification of
direction terms.
Lift Components
Refer to the Lift Terminology
Illustrations on pages 6 and 7.
Pump Module: The lift-mounted
pump module consists of the
hydraulic pump, the manual hand
pump and electrical components
that power the lift electric/hydraulic systems.
Hand-Held Switch Control Box:
The “quick-disconnect” hand-held
control switchbox is connected to
the pump module. “Quickdisconnect” hand-held controls
are available with three types of
cable (standard, armored and
coiled).
hydraulic cylinders are housed in
the parallel arms. The electrical/
hydraulic powered lift frame
components mechanically unfold,
lower, raise and fold the lift
platform assembly.
The control box is equipped with
two color-coded rocker switches,
(UNFOLD/FOLD and DOWN/UP).
The switches activate the automatic lift functions. Details
regarding the control switches
and their functions are provided in
the Pre-Lift Operation section
(page 14).
Platform Assembly: The lift
platform assembly consists of the
steel tubing frame with grating
surface upon which the wheelchair is positioned, the outboard
roll stop, roll stop latch, the
inboard roll stop (fixed inboard roll
stop models only), and the
hydraulic cylinder assembly that
powers the outboard roll stop.
Lift Frame: The lift frame
consists of the base plate, two
towers, the parallel arms, the
vertical arms, platform pivot arms
and the handrails. The two main
Lift-Tite™ Latches: The spring
loaded latches prevent the
platform from unfolding from the
stowed position in the event of
platform drift. Further details

Lift Components (continued)
regarding Lift-Tite™ latches are
provided on pages 15 and 16.
Outboard Roll Stop: The
cylinder-powered automatic
outboard roll stop provides a
ramp for wheelchair loading and
unloading at ground level. Photos and further details regarding
the outboard roll stop are provided in the Pre-Lift Operation
Notes section (pages 20 and 21).
Roll Stop Latch: The springloaded latch locks the outboard
roll stop in the vertical position
when the platform raises above
ground level.

Automatic Inboard Roll Stop
and Bridge Plate (IB): L915 “IB”
lift models are equipped with an
automatic mechanical inboard roll
stop that also serves as the
bridge plate (shown in the Lift
Terminology Illustration on page
6). The mechanical roll stop/
bridge plate automatically rotates
from the horizontal (bridging)
position to the vertical (roll stop)
position as the lift lowers and
raises. Further details regarding
the automatic mechanical inboard
roll stop are provided on pages
17 and 18.
Fixed Inboard Roll Stop: A
stationary inboard roll stop is built
into “non-IB” L915 lift platforms
(shown in the Lift Terminology
Illustration on page 7).
Independent Hinged Bridge
Plate: “Non-IB” L915 lift models
are equipped with an independent
hinged bridge plate (shown in the
Lift Terminology Illustration on
page 7). The bridge plate bridges
the gap between the lift platform
and the vehicle floor. Further
details regarding the bridge plate
are provided on pages 17 and 18.

Bridge Plates and Inboard
Roll Stops: L915 Series lift
models are available with an
automatic inboard roll stop that
also serves as the bridge plate
(“IB” lift models), or a combination stationary inboard roll stop
and an independent hinged
bridge plate (“non-IB” lift
models). An “IB” lift model is
depicted in the Lift Terminology
Illustration on page 7.
Automatic Inboard Roll Stop
and Bridge Plate: L915 “IB” lift
models are equipped with an
automatic inboard roll stop that
also serves as the bridge plate
(automatic inboard roll stop
photos on page 18).
When the UNFOLD switch is
pressed and the platform unfolds
from stow position to floor level,
this mechanical roll stop/bridge
plate is automatically deployed to
the bridging (horizontal) position
to provide a bridge plate between
the platform and the lift base plate
(vehicle floor). The inboard edge
of the bridge plate rests on the lift
base plate.
The mechanical roll stop/bridge
plate automatically folds (rotates)
to the vertical (roll stop) position
when the platform lowers to the
ground (DOWN switch is
pressed).
As the UP switch is pressed and
the platform raises from ground
level, the roll stop automatically
unfolds (rotates) to the horizontal

Pre-Lift Operation Notes and Details
Roll Stop Latch: A springloaded latch engages the outboard roll stop when the roll stop
rotates upward from ramp position to the vertical position (UP
switch is pressed to raise the
platform above ground level).
Note: The platform must raise
approximately two inches before
the latch engages fully (see
photos on previous page).
The latch disengages the roll stop
when the platform lowers fully
(reaches ground level) and the
latch foot contacts the ground
(latch raises above the roll stop).
Outboard Roll Stop and Roll
Stop Latch Operation: The lift
operator (attendant) must press
the DOWN switch to lower the
platform fully to the ground. The
attendant must view the platform
as it lowers to be certain the
entire platform reaches and
rests safely on the ground. Stop
pressing the DOWN switch if any
portion of the platform is obstructed while descending or the
entire platform does not reach
ground level for any reason
(contact with an obstruction,
mechanical failure, exceeding the
lift “floor-to-ground” capacity,
etc.).
After the platform is fully lowered
(entire platform reaches the
ground), the attendant should
continue to press the DOWN
switch to unfold the outboard roll
stop fully (ramp position). Note:
The roll stop must be fully
unfolded until the entire wheelchair (or standee) has crossed
the roll stop when loading or
unloading at ground level.
Discontinue lift operation
immediately if the roll stop or
latch do not operate properly.
Bridging: The L915 incorporates a bridging feature. This
feature stops the down travel of
the platform if the outboard end
of the platform contacts a raised
surface (such as a curb), preventing the operator from lowering the inboard end of the
platform.
Handrails: Dual handrails are
provided for wheelchair passenger (or standee) use. The
handrails unfold automatically to

the deployed (horizontal) position
when the lift unfolds and automatically fold to the stowed
(vertical) position when the
platform folds.
Passengers should grip both
handrails when on the lift platform
if able. Discontinue lift operation immediately if the handrails do not operate properly.
Lift Passengers
If you are an attendant operating
the lift, it is your responsibility to
perform safe loading and unloading procedures. Wheelchair lift
attendants should be instructed
on any special needs and/or
Page 22
procedures required for safe
transport of wheelchair passengers.
The lift operator and bystanders
must keep clear of the area in

Operation Procedure Review
The Braun Corporation recommends that transit agency supervisors and wheelchair lift attendants review the safety precautions and operation procedures
appearing in this manual and on
lift-posted decals with your
wheelchair lift sales representative (dealer), before attempting
lift operation.
Any questions or concerns can be
answered by the sales representative at that time. Operate the lift
through all functions with your
sales representative on hand to
ensure the proper use and
operation of the wheelchair lift is
understood.
Page 25
Pre-Lift Operation Notes and Details
Transit agency supervisors
should train and educate their lift
attendants on the proper use and
operation of the wheelchair lift if it
is not possible for the attendants
to review the safety precautions
WARNING
and operation procedures with
the wheelchair lift sales representative.
The lift owner's (operator's)
manual must be stored in the
lift-mounted manual storage
pouch at all times.
Preventive Maintenance:
Maintenance and
lubrication procedures must be performed by authorized
service personnel as
specified in the
applicable installation/service manual.
Failure to do so may
result in serious
bodily injury and/or
property damage.
Page 26
Maintenance is necessary to
ensure safe and troublefree lift
operation. General preventive lift
maintenance consisting of
careful inspections of the lift
system and cleaning the lift
should be a part of your transit
agency's daily lift service program. Simple inspections can
detect potential lift operational
problems.
Regular preventive maintenance
will reduce potential lift operation
downtime and increase the
service life of the lift, as well as
possibly detecting potential
hazards.
Exposure to harsh weather
elements, environmental conditions, or heavy usage may require
more frequent maintenance and
lubrication procedures.
Preventive maintenance visual
inspections do not take the place
of the procedures specified in the
