Title: HUMAN TRANSPORT DEVICE HAVING A MONITORING APPARATUS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a human transport device (1), such as in particular an escalator or a moving walkway, comprising a plurality of tread elements (3) connected into an endless transport belt (2), at least one drive unit (4) for driving the transport belt (2), and a monitoring apparatus for detecting a faulty arrangement of at least one tread element (3) in the transport belt (2), wherein the tread elements (3) of the driven transport belt (2) pass through a transport region (8) and a return region (9) between a first return station (6) and a second return station (7). The monitoring apparatus (5) has a detection means (10) and at least one triggering unit (11), wherein the detection means (10) is arranged in the direction of the longitudinal extension of the human transport device (1) below the tread elements (3) of the transport region (8) between the first return station (6) and the second return station (7). The detection means (10) is connected to the at least one triggering unit (11), wherein the triggering unit (11) is designed to actuate in case of mechanical influence on the detection means (10).
