(-a) During an emergency stop initiated by any of the electrical protective devices listed in 2.26.2 (except 188.8.131.52), at the rated speed in the down direction, with passenger elevators and freight elevators permitted to carry passengers carrying 125% of their rated load, or with freight elevators carrying their rated load, there shall be sufficient traction to safely stop and hold the load.
(-c) Conformance with the traction-loss detection means specified in 184.108.40.206 shall be demonstrated by
(-1) causing relative motion between the drive sheave and suspension means either by bottoming the car or counterweight [see 220.127.116.11.2(cc)(3)(-b)], or
(dd) Secondary and Deflector Sheaves (2.24.2) (Item 2.26)
(ff) Terminal Stopping Devices (Item 2.28). The following tests are performed with an empty car in the up direction and the car loaded with rated load or 125% of rated load in the down direction (see 2.16.8).
(1) Test normal terminal stopping device for conformance with 2.25.2 by making inoperative the normal stopping means. The final terminal stopping device and the emergency terminal speed-limiting device shall remain operative.

(hh) Governor, Overspeed Switch, and Seal (Item 2.13)
(2) The governor rope pull-through and pull-out forces shall be tested to determine conformance with 2.17.15 and 2.18.6. If adjustments are made to the governor it shall be sealed immediately following the test.
(3) The adjustable means shall be sealed (2.18.3).
(5) Access and securing of car, if applicable (22.214.171.124.4).
(ii) Car and Counterweight Safeties (Item 2.29)
(1) General Requirements for Types A, B, and C Safeties. The following requirements apply to the acceptance tests of Types A, B, and C safeties (Item 2.29):
(-a) Car safeties shall be tested with rated load in the car. In making the test of car safeties, the load shall be centered on each quarter of the platform symmetrically with respect to the centerlines of the platform. Counterweight safeties, where provided, shall be tested with no load in the car.
(-b) The car speed at which the governor trips shall be determined by means of a tachometer or other device designed to measure car speed and, if necessary, the governor shall be replaced or adjusted to conform to 2.18.2.
(-f) A metal tag with the rule number, test date, and name of the person/firm performing the test shall be attached to the releasing carrier or where the governor rope attaches to the safety.
(2) Type A Governor-Operated Safeties
(-a) Type A governor-operated safeties shall be tested by operating the car at its rated speed in the down direction and manually tripping the governor jaws. A test shall also be made of the inertia application of the safety to determine conformance with 126.96.36.199, by attaching the proper weight to the return run of the governor rope. The manufacturer shall inform the person making the test of the weight necessary to be added to the governor rope when making the inertia application test. This weight shall be that necessary to reproduce inertia operation of the safety at not more than 9/10 gravity. The inertia application test shall be made with the car stationary, and the weight, when released, shall move the safety parts into contact with the rails. See Nonmandatory Appendix M, Fig. M-1, for location of weight to be attached to the governor rope when making the inertia test. Inertia application of the safety on the Type A auxiliary safety plank of Type C safeties is not required.
(-b) If means other than inertia application of the safety is provided, such means shall be tested in an appropriate manner to ensure that the safety will apply without appreciable delay under free-fall condition and that the safety application is independent of the location of the break in the hoisting ropes.
(3) Type A Safeties Without Governors. Type A safeties without governors that are operated only as a result of the breaking or slackening of the suspension ropes shall be tested by obtaining the necessary slack rope to cause it to function.
(4) Types B and C Safeties
(-a) Types B and C safeties shall be subjected to an overspeed test, with the suspension ropes attached, by gradually increasing the speed of the car until the governor causes application of the safety.
Safeties of elevators equipped with AC driving-machine motors, where the car with its rated load does not cause sufficient overspeed when the machine brake is released to trip the governor jaws, shall be tested by operating the car at its rated speed in the down direction and tripping governor jaws by hand; see 188.8.131.52.2(hh) for test of governor tripping speed.
(-b) The overspeed switch on the governor shall be inoperative during the overspeed test. In order to ensure that the safety will retard the car with the minimum assistance from the elevator driving machine and minimize the development of slack rope and fallback of the counterweight, the switch on the car operated by the car safety mechanism shall, for the duration of the test, be temporarily adjusted to open as close as possible to the position at which the car safety mechanism is in the fully applied position.
(-c) The stopping distances for Type B safeties shall conform to 2.17.3, and shall be determined by measuring the length of the marks made by the safety jaws or wedges on both sides of each car guide rail, deducting the length of the safety jaw or wedge used, and taking the average of the four readings.
(-e) For Type C safeties, the stopping distance shall be equal to the stroke of the buffer located between the lower member of the car frame and the auxiliary safety plank, and shall conform to 184.108.40.206. After the safety has stopped the car, the level of the auxiliary safety plank shall be checked to determine conformance with 220.127.116.11.6.
(jj) Ascending Car Overspeed, and Unintended Car Motion Protection
(1) Ascending Car Overspeed Protection. The means to prevent ascending car overspeed shall be inspected and tested with no load in the car to verify conformance with 18.104.22.168.
(2) Unintended Car Motion. The means to prevent unintended car motion shall be inspected and tested to verify conformance with 22.214.171.124.
(kk) Speed. The speed of the car shall be verified with and without rated load, in both directions (126.96.36.199).
