Foreword

This Part of BS 5656 has been prepared by Technical Committee MHE/4, Lifts, hoists
and escalators, and is applicable to the testing and examination of new escalators and
passenger conveyors installed in accordance with BS EN 115.
BS 5656 consists of the following Parts:
| Part 1: Specification and proformas for test and examination of new installations
|
| Part 2: Specification and proformas for test and examination after modernization
| (in preparation)
It was originally intended that BS 5656 (EN 115) would be renumbered as
BS 5656 : Part 1 to produce a logical pair of stand-alone standards for escalators and
passenger conveyors. However, as the practice of dual numbering an EN as a BS was
replaced by implementation as a BS EN, the 1995 revision of EN 115 was published in
the UK as BS EN 115 and the identifier BS 5656 was no longer used for current
standards. Nevertheless, as this BS identifier was well known within the industry, it
was decided to retain it for the testing and examination standard.
Copyright is waived by BSI in respect of the tables in this standard. Enquiries
concerning bulk printed supplies of the form in those tables can be addressed to
BSI Customer Services, Sales Department, 389 Chiswick High Road, London W4 4AL.
CAUTION. During any inspection and test, maintenance or repair it is suggested that
precautions should be taken so that escalators and passenger conveyors cannot be set
into motion without the knowledge and consent of the person performing such work.
(See 16.1 of BS EN 115 : 1995 and BS 7801). In addition, safety barricades should be
erected at the ends of each escalator or passenger conveyor before any floor coverings
or steps etc. are removed and should remain in position until the escalator or
passenger conveyor is safe and suitable for public use. (See 15.1.2.3 of BS EN 115 : 1995).

Compliance with a British Standard does not of itself confer immunity


from legal obligations.

6 Electrical tests (after installation)


Electrical installations, excluding electronic
equipment, shall be subjected to test, by instruments
as follows.
a) Apply d.c. test voltage which is not less than
twice the r.m.s value of the a.c. supply voltage or
not greater than 500 V d.c. for low voltage circuits,
to prove that the insulation resistance to earth is
not less than 0.5 MW.
NOTE. If dampness in a new building prevents a reading of
0.5 MW from being obtained, an insulation resistance of 0.25
MW is provisionally acceptable provided a retest figure of 0.5
MW is obtained when conditions in the building improve.
b) Determine that the earthing of all conduit,
trunking, switch cases and similar metal work is
continuous and does not exceed 0.5 W impedance.
NOTE. An escalator or passenger conveyor installation is
considered to be a self-contained piece of equipment and as
such is not required to conform in all respects to BS 7671 :
1992 (formerly the IEE Regulations) in particular with regard to
the earthing of all apparatus.
