The RAC data base does not have elevator specific failure rates but at the part or component level we do have information that could be translated to elevator conditions. The information is located in our Non-Electronic Parts Reliability Database (NPRD-95). The information includes failure rate data on switches, pulleys, cables, motors, relays and other components that are used in an elevator system. These data could be adjusted to fit the elevator environmental and operating characteristics.
