I conntrol specifications

is the revolutionary platform that outperforms today’s industry-standardcontrollers. iControl delivers processing performance through the intelligent iBox processor and motion performance through closed-loop-control, 16K PWM AC or 12-Pulse DC drives. Configuration, diagnostics, and adjustments are handled through iControlware, a user-friendly software suite designed specifically for iControl. iCue software, running on a centralized dispatcher or an iBox in an elevator group, uses artificial intelligence to make optimal dispatching decisions. An innovative, maintenance-free landing system uses sensors and magnetic encoding to ensure absolute hoistway position – without tape or switches. iControl’s cartop station converts discrete car signals to serial communication for transmission to the iBox, reducing traveler cable bulk and expense.

Applications

Modernization or new construction
Low-rise through high-rise — up to 96 stops, as little as one inch between floors
Gearless or geared, induction or permanent magnet
Groups to 15 cars
1,800 fpm, 9.15 m/s
Features

Powered by intelligent iBox processor and closed loop 16K PWM AC Drive, or 12-Pulse DC Drive, and supported by integrated system components.
Powerful, software-based dispatching engine uses artificial intelligence to continually optimize dispatching decisions. Easily modify, refine and scale configuration to meet changing traffic patterns. Modular upgrades ensure long-term performance, flexibility and return on investment. Real-time car status information delivered via high-speed, high bandwidth network for optimized response.
Reduced traveling cable wires for labor and material savings. Plug-and-play installation reduces setup time. Traveler and hoistway cable tailored for iControl. All conductors clearly labeled and color-coded. Eliminate connection errors and save installation time. Prevents doors from opening unless car speed is within acceptable limits. Maintains absolute position of the car during a power failure.
Benefits

Intelligent — automated calibration, dispatching and traffic-handling allow iControl to learn and optimize for specific building requirements, increasing owner and tenant satisfaction. System self-configures for standard commissioning tests — you select the test, iControl sets up for it.
Intuitive — Windows-based user interface is easy to learn and use, reducing installation time and maintenance cost.
Safe — the most direct, advanced solution available, designed for ASME A17.1-2004/CSA B44-04 code compliance, with robust engineering that anticipates updates.
Cost-effective — streamlined, field configurable hardware design. Fewer components to install, maintain or replace.
Flexible — modular software and hardware layers accommodate changing system needs, gracefully and economically.
Responsive — robust Ethernet interface facilitates secure remote monitoring, remote equipment control, remote diagnostics, even real time remote troubleshooting and adjustment.
Create and configure complex car and group installations off site — then upload, remotely or from the machine room. Create and re-use a “golden” file with minor adjustments from job to job.

Motioner

The Motion 4000 traction elevator control is designed to meet the newer installations requiring speeds to 400 feet per minute, service up to 32 stops, and elevator groups to 6 cars. Motion 4000 makes the jobs of installers, adjusters, and maintenance personnel as straightforward as possible, stressing minimal hardware requirements, “out-of-the-box” job readiness, and simple adjustment. Motion 4000 provides flexibility for small machine room or machine roomless installations with application-sized enclosures and components that can be located away from the controller (like Torqmax F5 drive for Motion 4000MRL).
