Minimalist and robust by design, DARDO is the reference pushbutton
for lifts installed in more demanding environments, including high-traffic buildings and/or prone to vandalism.
Dardo at a glance
Modern look, minimalist design featuring a wholly reshaped font.
Compliant to new EN81-70:2018 color contrast requirement (LRV)
Rock-solid design, tested for vandal-proof requirements of EN81-71 Class 1 (more..)
Two mounting solutions: flush mounting with welded studs or frontal mounting with metal collar.
Raised symbol with single illumination or twin Illumination (see what it means)
IP67 (flush mounting) or IP64 (frontal mounting)
A CLOSER LOOK
Its minimalist look should not be misleading: DARDO is a button designed for demanding, heavy-duty applications. With its extremely robust body and proven activation mechanism, DARDO fully complies with EN81-71 Class 1 European guidelines for the design of lift components installed in environments prone to vandalism.
DARDO was successfully tested in our laboratories for impact, water flow and fire resistance.
GREAT CONTRAST, BETTER VISIBILITY
The EN81-70:2018 norm requires that luminance contrast between adjacent surfaces shall be evaluated in numerical light reflectance value (LRV). The black metal ring added around DARDO frontal mount button provides enhanced luminance contrast to the surrounding faceplate.
The flush version of the DARDO achieves the correct LRV required by EN81-70:2018 with its dark pressel (round black version on request).
See the relevant EN81-70:2018 section for more details.
The frontal mount version of the DARDO can be inserted in squared-shaped 36,4mm cut-outs. The retaining ring is part of the button body and ensures optimal solidity.
The additional black metal collar can be added to achieve full compliance with the newest EN81-70:2018 norm.
DARDO most stylish version fits into square-shaped 33,6mm cut-outs. The pushbutton is back-mounted with studs and is beautifully flush with the faceplate.
Compliance with the newest EN81-70:2018 norm is achieved through the black colour of the surround. In addition, with the twin-lighting option, the DARDO is brilliantly compliant.
Upon activation, both the raised symbol and the halo of the pushbutton light up in red or blue. White illumination is also available on request for some pushbuttons.
By default, all DMG buttons are available primarily with this basic illumination pattern.
DMG introduced the Twin-lighting solution as a way to enhance button visibility in darker cabins.
Twin lighting means that both the halo and the symbol of the button are permanently illuminated in WHITE.
Upon activation, the button lights up in RED or BLUE while the white light goes off.
This advanced illumination pattern is available for some DMG pushbuttons, including the DARDO.
Like all our pushbuttons, the Dardo can be matched to different contact modules:
Wire terminals contact module
Good for all types of modernizations. Requires conventional wiring during installation.
If EN81.70 Beep is required, the additional PCB0BEEP module shall be added to the car panel and at each floor. Alternatively, the P8+BEEP contact module is suggested especially at floors.
Best solution for pre-wired fixtures within the Pitagora 4.0 electric system.
A JST cable must be added to connect the push-button to the Pitagora 4.0 boards in the car (C40.COP14) and at each floor (C40.BDU).
contact module + BEEP
Good for all types of modernizations requiring BEEP and new installations compliant to EN81.70.
Requires conventional wiring during installation.
The embedded beep device features +/-2dB BEEP signal when button is pressed.
Each DMG product goes through countless and meticulous tests to guarantee the best product on the market.
Our buttons have an average life of 5,000,000 activations, following one of our tests.
Choosing DMG means preferring high QUALITY and more excellent SAFETY.
