SEC 3-Wire Pendant Station

Brothers & Sisters,

If you have any escalators or moving walks being installed by Schindler let me know ASAP. Schindler is stating that the new escalators and moving walks that are being installed are not shipped with 3 wire pendant stations in spite of finding them on two different jobs being installed.

You may recall that in 2005 The IUEC lost Brother Glenn Martin, Local 41, to an on the job fatality that occurred due to the use of a three wire pendant station while installing an elevator. He was crushed when the three wire pendant cord was pinched and shorted the wires together making the stop switch inoperable.

If you are able, please take pictures of the pendants, note job location and employer and get the info back to me.

Attached are pictures of a Schindler three wire pendant station that was shipped to a job in Albany NY. I’ve asked Eric Buschick, Area Operations Manager with Schindler, to look into this serious safety hazard and get back to me. I was on the job and personally witnessed the material box being opened and then the pendant station box was opened.

The pictures are of the pendant station shipped to the job with all of the other material. As you can see, there are only three wires to the pendant. Up, down and common and only a three wire pin connector on the opposite end.
