Most days of the year Jews can press elevator buttons. However, on Shabbat/Shabbos (the Jewish Sabbath), Friday from sundown until Saturday after twilight; and Jewish Holida…ys (a list of which you can find at http://www.answers.com/topic/jewish-holiday), Jews are forbidden from closing electric circuits and putting on lights - as part of the 39 categories of "work" that they may not do on holy days (Exodus 31:13-17; Talmud, Shabbat 73b). (See a list of these categories on http://www.answers.com/topic/39-categories-of-activity-prohibited-on-shabbat) Pressing elevator buttons would violate the prohibition of not doing "work" on these holy days.
When you press the button, a microswitch creates a circuit. That circuit sends a signal to the elevator controller, which is a computer that runs the elevator. Instantly, the …controller powers the light inside the button, which is usually an LED. At the same time, the elevator is dispatched to your location based on a mathematical formula. Once the elevator arrives, the LEDs in the button are turned off. Buttons vary greatly, but a generally divided into vandal resistant or plastic. Vandal resistance is typically defined as a metal button that lands on solid metal when depressed. See www.epco.us for examples of many kinds of buttons.
No. Pressing the button once will tell the control logic that a rider is waiting for the lift. It will respond by stopping the next upgoing or downgoing car on that floor. It'…s that simple.
PB means Plant Baja which in English means Main Floor.
Here is the answer directly from Otis: "The Shuffle button is used only by Otis Technicians when they need to change the placement of the lower/upper deck elevators. It allows… them to safely board the lower deck car top from the main lobby. A special code is required from the Elevator management system to allow shuffle operation to be activated." Keep in mind that the elevators in question are double-decked and serve two floors at once.
The elevator stops and a person talks to you
No, it doesn't. I was told that it was for people that have OCD so that they would feel better.
I believe it stands for something like "Parking Lot"
Because it is electricity and you can get stuck there.
Well, how i would think of it is that it would wobble around so much that the weight of the elevator would snap the rope that transports it up and down, and the elevator would… fall to the bottom.
yes but you would have to be crazy the aftershok would take you and the elavater down
Yes, Earthquakes are often more easily felt on the higher floors of buildings.

Use your EMF Detector and go inside the elevator.
