lr_operator11If the lift is away from the lower level, press and hold the bottom of the rocker switch (down call) as indicated above.

lr_operator2As the lift descends, a safety skirt around the bottom of the platform prevents the lift from trapping objects as the lift reaches the lower level. If this safety edge is activated, the lift will stop. In this eventuality, press the up button, clear the obstruction and continue the descent.

lr_operator2_1As the lift reaches the lower level there will be a slight pause and the ramp will deploy automatically.

lr_operator2_2If there is an obstruction beneath the ramp as it deploys, the ramp will stop. Once the obstruction has been cleared, the ramp will continue to deploy.

lr_operator3_1On entering the lift, ensure that you are central on the platform. Press and hold the right hand side of the switch (up call) as indicated above.

lr_operator3_2On arrival at the upper level push the gate within 15 seconds and exit the lift. If you do not open the gate
within 15 seconds the gate will re-lock. To re-activate the timer, press the up button once again.
