as part of the cylinder rebuild, the changeover to RFID has been completed for the lift. Those who have not been added to AD properly after their training need to reach out to myself or another lift instructor, and complete the quiz located here (EDIT: to clarify, this is not a substitute for the class. However some members may have been around too long or instructor may have missed it. Taking the exam does not automatically put you in the AD group, still need to talk with the instructor or the committee): https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd_FX1hnjtRMC9J6MVF67W8CTm8AIstXOV7tA04Mam58NuqIw/viewform
To use the box, scan your fob. If authorized the contactor will engage (with a loud ker-thunk) and the lift will be live. If not authorized, the lift stays de-energized.
When done with the lift, badge again to shut it off; the unit will also auto-timeout after 5 minutes of inactivity.
If the unit seems to not function, and the member is in the AD group, the unit can be rebooted by throwing the lift power disconnect off and on. The unit takes about 2-3 minutes to be ready. @william_petefish and I abused the heck out of it and managed to crash it only once with conditions that shouldn’t happen, so I don’t expect this to be an issue.
There is an override key stored on-site. Since this is the first of these RFID units deployed, if something happens this key will be pulled and the unit put into override mode.
