Optidrive Elevator Features

Dedicated drive for geared and gearless lift applications

Optidrive Elevator range
  • Modbus RTU
  • CAN
  • on board as standard
  • CE
  • UL
  • RCM
  • TUV
  • Dedicated Elevator Drive

    The compact external dimensions simplify installation, whilst optional incremental/EnDat encoder feedback interfaces allow compatibility with a wide range of motors.

    Invertek's renowned motor control capability ensures maximum ride comfort under all conditions, with five independent S-ramps and dedicated motor holding brake control algorithm allowing fine tuning of the system.

  • Elevator Encoder - Optional feedback

    • Incremental Encoders
    • EnDat Rotary Encoders (EnDat 2.1 & 2.2) with simulated encoder output
    • SinCos Rotary Encoder with simulated Encoder output
  • Flexibility

    • Control of Geared and Gearless elevator systems in a single product
    • Open loop or Closed loop vector (with incremental encoder) control of standard IM motors
    • Open loop or Closed loop (with SinCos/EnDat encoder) control of PM motors
  • Comfortable Ride

    • Includes 5 independent S-Ramps allowing fine tuning of ride performance and jerk free travel
    • Short floor operation reduces carriage travel time
    • High motor switching frequency (max 32kHz) for quite motor operation
    • Dedicated motor brake control algorithm for safe and smooth operation of the motor brake
  • Advanced Features

    • Anti-Rollback (Open and closed loop operation)
    • Rescue mode operation (Sine wave or square wave UPS), with easiest direction measurement for UPS longevity.
    • On-board simple PLC function allows custom application programs to be written and interfacing with a wide variety of control systems built in as standard
    • Modbus RTU and CANopen as standard
    • Full load operation up to 50ºC with no de-rating
