Title: SUSPENSION MEMBER ARRANGEMENT FOR AN ELEVATOR AND MONITORING ARRANGEMENT FOR MONITORING A SUSPENSION MEMBER
Abstract:
A suspension member arrangement (2) for an elevator (1)is proposed. The suspension member arrangement (2) comprises a suspension member (11) including a plurality of electrically conductive load-bearing cords (23) commonly embedded in an electrically isolating matrix material (25)and a first connector (31) and a second connector (33) attached to the suspension member (11) and electrically contacting cords (23) within the suspension member (11) in a contacted end region (29) thereof. Therein,the first connector (31) electrically contacts and electrically interconnects in parallel a first group (35) of cords (23) comprising a first plurality of directly neighboring cords (23)and the second connector (33) electrically contacts and electrically interconnects in parallel a second group (37) of cords (23) comprising a second plurality of directly neighboring cords (23). The approach may facilitate electrically contacting cords (23) of a suspension member using a simple type of connector (31, 33). Furthermore, deteriorations in characteristics of the suspension member (11) may be electrically detected with high accuracy.
