Motor System Enables Elevators to Ride Smoothly
- Created: Monday, 01 October 2007
At the core of the elevator’s lifting and lowering system is Lenze/AC Tech’s GKR bevel gear motor, which was chosen by the ADVANTAGE engineers because of its smooth and quiet operation. A right-angle motor with water-resistant bevel toothing, the GKR has cool-running gears, which are especially appropriate for lower-torque applications.
The elevator’s end use is important in this case, and a reason why the bundled option — featuring a small gear box and motor in one unit, plus integral brake, hand release, and hand wheel, all in one package — was chosen by the ADVANTAGE team.
