Up-limit stop devices.

(1) Two separate automatic stop devices shall be provided to cut off the power and apply the brake when a loaded step passes the upper terminal landing. One of these devices shall consist of a switch mechanically operated by the belt or step roller. The second device shall consist of any of the following:
(a) A roller switch located above but not in line with the first switch;
(b) A photocell and light source (an "electric eye"); or
(c) A switch activated by a lever, bar, rod, or plate.
(i) If a plate is used, it shall be positioned above the head pulley so it barely clears a passing step.
(ii) If a bar is used, the bar shall be of the "breakaway" type.
(2) The stop device shall stop the lift before a loaded step reaches a point 609.6 mm (24 in.) above the top terminal landing.
(3) Once the lift has stopped, the automatic stop device shall be manually reset. Therefore, this device shall be located on the top landing where the person resetting the device has a clear view of both the "up" and "down" runs of the lift; and it shall be impossible to reset from a step.
(4) Stop devices shall comply with the requirements found in the current adopted edition of ASME A90.1.
