Car enclosure — the top and the walls of the car resting on and attached to the car platform.
Car frame — the supporting frame to which the car platform, upper and lower sets of guide shoes, car safety, and the hoisting ropes or hoisting-rope sheaves, or the plunger or cylinder of a direct-acting elevator, are attached.
Car platform — the structure that forms the floor of the car and that directly supports the load. Certified — see Listed/certified.
Certifying organization — an approved or accredited, independent organization concerned with product evaluation that maintains periodic inspection of production of listed/certified equipment or material and whose listing/certification states whether that equipment meets appropriate standards or has been tested and found suitable for use in a specified manner.

Clearance, top car, inclined elevators — the shortest distance in the direction of travel between the upward most portion of the chassis (car frame) and the nearest obstruction when the car is level with the top terminal landing.
Clearance, top counterweight — the shortest vertical distance between any part of the counterweight structure and the nearest part of the overhead structure or any other obstruction when the car floor is level with the bottom terminal landing.
Control, motion — that portion of a control system that governs the acceleration, speed, retardation, and stopping of the moving member.
Control, operation — that portion of a control system that initiates the starting, stopping, and direction of motion in response to a signal from an operating device.
Operation, automatic — operation control wherein the starting of the elevator, dumbwaiter, or material lift car is effected in response to the momentary actuation of operating devices at the landing, and/or of operating devices in the car identified with the landings, and/or in response to an automatic starting mechanism, and wherein the car is stopped automatically at the landings.
Operation, automatic call — operation control wherein the starting of a wind turbine tower elevator car is effected in response to the momentary actuation of operating devices not mounted on the car and wherein the car is stopped automatically at the terminal landing or at the next landing in the direction of travel.
Operation, automatic send — operation control wherein the starting of a wind turbine tower elevator car is effected in response to the momentary actuation of operating devices mounted on the car and only accessible from outside the car, wherein the car is stopped automatically at the terminal landing or at the next landing in the direction of travel.
Controller — a device or group of devices that serves to control in a predetermined manner the apparatus to which it is connected.CSA B44.8 pdf download.
