Maintenance on New Equipment Designs, 2nd editon: Since 2010, many changes to the ASME A17.1/CSA B44 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators have happened. With the expiration of several patents for MRL designs with their unique components and driving machine locations, many more companies are now designing and installing similar systems. Due to the the advent of these new technologies, ASME A17.6/CSA B44-6 includes these additions for guidance on their manufacture and application. Many changes were made to ASME A17.1/CSA B44 section 8.6 since the 2008 edition, and the latest Code is the 2022 edition. This new edition of Maintenance On New Equipment Designs covers these changes.
