Ellis Drawstop System
Just completed, a new concept in stopjamb design. Departing from the usual proceedure of mounting individual drawstop solenoid or similar units on a single front panel, these new drawbars are assembled in vertical rows the full height of the stopjamb with all mechanisms built into the wooden assembly, including the finished front panel, collars and drawknobs. These rows are then assembled side by side to form the complete drawstop panel.
Smooth action is provided by polished metal in felt bearings, with toggle action provided by the coil and magnet assembly. Motor action is provided by Ellis's single coil/permanent magnet system, now using latest rare earth magnets. A Glass reed switch on each unit senses the position of the movement and provides on/off information as required by the switching system connected. Heavy felt bumpers provide start/stop position limiting, which should require little or no attention. The whole design is intended to provide a long lasting low maintenance system.
Systems can be ordered in any number/ position and can be made from any kind of wood for the front panel.
