About a model to be exhibited: a machine room-less elevator

Hitachi’s machine room-less elevator for Asia and the Middle East, in addition to its excellent design, offers standardized basic specifications to respond flexibly and quickly to the needs of customers. It applies the latest design and functions developed for the Japanese market, realizes a high level of safety and an energy saving with the use of a regenerative operation system and LEDs, and creates a clean and comfortable environment in the car with a deodorizing ion generator.

  1. Safety
    An infrared sensor at the doors prevents boarding and departing passengers from getting caught between the doors. This sensor also flashes red to let users know that the doors are closing. An automatic landing device can be equipped as an option which operates the car to land on the nearest floor and the doors to open in case of power outage.
  2. Energy Saving
    This model uses LED lights in the car, helping to reduce (2) the lighting power to levels lower than conventional models with fluorescent lights. In addition, the traction mechanism acts as a power generator to transmit power back to the electrical network in the building.
  3. Comfort
    An ion generator installed on the car supplies ions with a deodorizing effect, helping the air in the car clean.
  4. Design
    This model is designed to meet a wide range of customer needs with a number of car deigns and LCD that show all kinds of information.
