Missing Step Detector System with Proximity Sensors

KONE Spares new Missing Step Detector Kit employs touchless proximity sensors instead of mechanical rollers to detect missing steps.

Upgrade reduces the potential for expensive repairs: 

  • With old mechanical solutions the tension created presses against the side of the step or pallet.  This pressure can cause the step demarcation over time to dislodge the demarcation form the step.  
  • Utilizes proximity sensors that do not touch the step, eliminating the frequent call backs on tripped switches
  • Also prevents damage to steps themselves with the Upgraded MSD
  • Further reliability with no moving parts affected by humidity/corrosion in new NEMA 4 enclosure​​​​​​​

This means far less wear and also reduces false stops. And it works with most escalators!
