Memco Launches Elevator Position System
New sensor allows elevator displays to show floor number and direction
Memco’s Elevator Position System provides information to an elevator’s displays about floor number, direction arrow and the direction of travel; this is then seen by passengers on the car display screen. A magnet is located on each floor and, as a sensor attached to the elevator car passes a magnet, it increases or decreases the floor number depending on the direction of travel.
The Elevator Position System works in tandem with an elevator display screen and customers can order from a variety of packages, some of which include screens and accessories, to suit their application and assist in making ordering as efficient as possible.
Xavier Fortin, Memco’s Displays Business Manager, explains: “Memco designed this system to make the installation and upgrading of elevators with the latest display technology as easy as possible.”
For example, the ‘Premium Package’ consists of an Evolution S1 7” ultraslim LCD Display screen, lens, SD card, and stainless steel faceplate in addition to the sensor unit kit which is the basic system. The ‘Standard Package’ option contains the Evolution R1 Display at 4.3”, lens, SD card, and faceplate in addition to the sensor unit kit.
Extremely versatile and low-maintenance, the Elevator Position System works with all elevator applications with speeds of up to 3.6 metres/second and can cover up to 32 floors. Installation is simple requiring the sensor to be mounted on a bracket, and a magnet is glued at each floor level.
