We started the development of the elevator control unit in May 2008 to create a product with modern technology that matches today’s standards. Our product is suitable for controlling geared traction (single-speed or two-speed), regulated traction or hydraulic elevators.
This elevator controller is a distributed intelligence system which is made up of the following units: central electronics, car inspection station, faceplates and hall stations. The components are communicating via the ORCA bus which is a 4-core cable. Only one 24-core travelling cable is needed between the controller cabinet and the elevator car.
Upon request the shaft cables, the travelling cable, the faceplates, the door drive cables and the car inspection station may be pre-assembled so the control system can be assembled quickly by connecting them to the appropriate sockets.
The failure of the individual components does not cause the total shutdown of the control system, only the affected area will be out of service. Of course there are requisite components like the position sensors, the safety controller and monitoring system. Without the units mentioned above the elevator control system cannot operate, resulting in immediate shutdown.
