Modernizing your Elevator Part Three

It is important to note that the modern, solid-state controllers replacing the old motor generators often will require additional power. In addition, microprocessors are heat-sensitive, and so may demand the installation or upgrade of an air-conditioning system in the machine room. These and other factors must be considered when budgeting for a modernization program and considering the merits of various product lines.

Car improvements and fixture upgrades will be necessary in almost any modernization for tenant appeal. Many experts also are predicting the widespread adoption of the requirements now in place in most major cities for extra safety fittings in elevator cars. These requirements include smoke detectors and enhanced car-to-centralisation communication capability.

At some point, you must consider a complete overhaul of the system. Such a move is recommended for all elevators that are 20 or more years old. However, rapidly changing technology and the retirement of technicians with experience on older systems may make it necessary for all systems to be modernized in the foreseeable future. Elevator installation consultant deals with providing you the required information and details about upgrading your elevator.
