ACVF Drives and Remote Monitoring of Escalators

Michael Lichtenberg

Monday 1st November 1993

Escalators and passenger conveyors have become essential in public transport systems to move passengers between different floor levels. The remote monitoring of escalators is the most efficient way to guarantee this service and is increasingly becoming a standard requirement in technical specifications. Down time is considerably reduced and the comfort of the passengers re-established as a result of the provision of rapid and precise information about what has caused a stoppage. A trend which parallels ecological awareness is the use of ACVF drives resulting in energy savings. This technology in use with lifts for some time, now finds acceptance for escalator drives.
