Elevator drive, ACL30

Take your elevators to the next level

Our new elevator drive is a reliable choice for all gearless and geared low- and mid-rise elevators with or without a machine room. The seamless operation with all types of motors helps you build elevators that provide the quietest, most efficient and most comfortable passenger experience without vibration and jerks. Selecting a regenerative drive option lets you reduce the elevator’s carbon footprint and operating costs.

Smoothness. Quietness. Flexibility. Safety. You know that everything counts when selecting elevator control.

Main benefits

  • The widest free memory allocation for programming your own elevator functionality.
  • Energy efficient operation. Low power consumption helps you fulfill the latest energy efficiency classifications. Regenerative drive options recycle braking energy to reduce carbon footprint and operating costs.
  • Quiet motor operation. Runs all types of synchronous and asynchronous motors quietly without vibration and jerks.
  • Less contactors. The drives come standard with an integrated safe torque off (SIL 3) safety function that makes possible to eliminate contactors on the motor side (TÜV certificate pending).
  • Fast encoder offset autotuning without disconnecting the mechanics and ropes saves installation time.
  • Commissioning of the drive during new installs and modernization of old elevators is made fast and easy by transferring the drive’s software and settings from a removable memory unit.

HES880 mobile drive

Compact and rugged drive modules for heavy hybrid or full electric vehicles and marine applications.

Dependable heavy duty performance is essential to your operations. Our HES880 drives are designed with this in mind. They help you increase productivity, while reducing fuel consumption and emissions.

With its high vibration tolerance, the HES880 offers the rugged, reliable performance you demand.  When used in regenerative inverter mode, it controls the torque and speed of the electric motor. This can be a traction motor or any other electric motor, even an electrically driven hydraulic pump. When used in its line converter mode, it can control the power network connectivity and charge the batteries while the machine is not moving. In DC/DC converter mode the drive transfers energy to and from a battery or a super capacitor. The energy storage can be used for full-electric operation or as a hybrid with a diesel engine for power peak shaving or operating on batteries and using diesel as a range extender.
