Elevator Motors

Elevators have different sizes and drives depending on the type of building and the number of passengers or loads in it.

Lifts are generally powered by electric motors that either raises traction cables and counterweight systems or pump hydraulic oil to drive a cylindrical piston like a jack. The most commonly used type of elevator is without machine room (known as machine-roomless). Many elevator types can be used all over the world for different purposes. In today’s world, traction and hydraulic elevators are preferred more than other types. As a result, different models and types of motors are used for elevators.

  • For gearless solutions,
  • gearless AC motors can be preferred.

A range of low and high-slip single-speed motor designs for VVVF drive applications can be used for AC machine designs. A gearless machine for elevators can be powered by a permanent magnet synchronous motor. The geared machine has a reduction gearbox coupled to a motor. Furthermore, Belt Gearless System should be used and this system consists of traction motor, traction sheave, deflection pulleys, polyurethane (PU) coated steel ropes (belts), belt clamps, and belt lifetime counter.

Belt gearless motors are compatible with MR and MRL systems, and they provide energy efficiency with the highest levels of performance.

Because of their lower setup cost, hydraulic elevators can be used in places up to about 1-3 floors. We offered open-construction and asynchronous motors for wet operations like hydraulic drives. These motors offer a low starting current and a lightweight coupled with high starting torque. In addition, hydraulic ail cools the motors as they work. Consequently, all types of motors suitable for elevators with or without machine room can be provided ISF Elevator and Engineering Company according to European Standards or our engineers offer modernization solutions or new projects with an appropriate price.
