Formula Systems Announce New "Controller-Less" Infra-Red (Ir) Light Curtains In Usa

Formula Systems, a leading manufacturer of safety edge curtains and the Safescreen brand, has announced a new range of "controller-less" infra-red (IR) elevator door protection devices for direct connection into contemporary door controls. The new range, designated FCU47, has optically synchronised edges which connect directly into any compatible door controller in a similar manner to photocells.

The new product provides benefits of quicker and simpler installation, reduced system maintenance and lower product cost. For applications such as modernisation where old-style door controllers are in use, a universal interface is available which provides low voltage power to the edges and relay outputs to connect with the elevator door controls.

John Curzon, Sales & Marketing Manager for Formula Systems, commented: "We designed the FCU47 next generation safety edge curtain to incorporate our customers' "most wanted" features into the product. It's perfect for the demanding North American market and is a natural progression on from the established FCU47. In addition to the new product introduction, I am delighted to join forces with The Fixture Company of Illinois to serve the market in the USA from March 1st 2000. Product will also roll-out through our partners Dupar in Canada, Peter Rogge Industrie Umweltechnik, Dewhurst plc in the UK and through Formula Systems Global Sales for R.O.W." he concluded.

The newly appointed, Illinois-based TFC provides sales and service support for all Formula Systems products, including the full Formula Systems FCU range of infra-red safety edges (formerly promoted in the United States as type ICU).

The Fixture Company, established in 1996, is run by its General Manager, Mark Menke and is a subsidiary of UK-based Dewhurst plc.

Formula Systems, based in Oxfordshire, UK, is a global supplier of safety edge curtains and equipment for elevator door and passenger protection. It is the holder of the Safescreen™ brand of products. Established in 1983, Formula Systems is a wholly owned division of Airdri Ltd.
