I received a letter (from ECNY) saying that NYC passenger and Freight elevators will be required to have a load weighting device by 9/28/2018.
Section 2.16 "Capacity and loading"
2.16.10 "Detection if Overload on passenger elevators and freight elevators permitted by 2.16.4 to carry passengers"
"passenger elevators and freight elevators permitted by 2.16.4 to carry passengers must be designed with the means to detect if the load exceeds the rated capacity of the elevator. If an overload is detected, the elevator doors must reopen and remain open and a voice notification and visual signal must indicate that the car is over loaded."
Is this needed for all elevators? Hydro and Traction? is this an actual new code?
