Guide rails — metal members formed into a suitable section or arrangement to retain and guide the carriage during its motion in the course of its travel.
Hydraulic drive (System) — a machine in which energy Is applied by means of a fluid under pressure in a cylinder equipped with a plunger or piston.
Levelling — the controlled carriage movement towards the landing, within the levelling zone, by means of a levelling device that vertically aligns the carriage level relative to the landing level.
Levelling device — any mechanism that will move the carriage within the levelling zone towards the landing.
Levelling device, anti-creep — a levelling device used on hydraulic lifts to correct automatically a change in carriage level caused by leakage or contraction of fluid in the hydraulic system.
Levelling device, automatic — a device that corrects the carriage level on both underrun and overrun, and maintains the level during loading and unloading.
Levelling zone — the limited distance above or below a landing level, within which the levelling device is permitted to cause movement of the carriage towards the landing.
