Shaft copying systems typically rely on contactless magnetic or optical measuring technologies to detect elevator car position. But while the installation process for many of these systems is long and complex, installing our shaft copying system takes only a few minutes. Here’s an overview of what you can expect: Traditional Systems Rely On Sharp-edged, Fragile […]

Updated elevator safety standards have recently been put into effect for all passenger and cargo elevators to improve the safety of users, installers, inspection personnel and service technicians. As a result, elevator manufacturers face new, rigorous demands. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to improve the safety of your elevator without delay, using our SIL-certified absolute […]

When it comes to elevators and safety, you can’t take any chances. Not only must elevators adhere to rigorous safety standards for passengers, installers and technicians, but they must also be able to arrive accurately at desired floors—achieving long-term reliability even after continuous use. The key technology that meets these demands is the shaft copying […]

Although the SAE J1939 standard is not new, it continues to grow in popularity. Used in on- and off-highway vehicles—from passenger cars to construction vehicles and agricultural machinery—SAE J1939 supports real-time, closed-loop control functions between vehicle components. In addition, it enables heavy-duty machine manufacturers to reap the benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT), which […]

In our last few blog posts, we’ve been exploring various single-cable electrical interfaces for motor feedback encoders. Now, we turn to BiSS Line—an open-source iteration of the BiSS protocol that, like SCS open link, supports single-cable technology. Let’s take a closer look at some of its defining features and benefits: What is BiSS Line? A […]

To meet the demands of digital drive controllers in today’s smarter, more automated factories, electrical interfaces have had to evolve. RS485 and SinCos, for example, are two classical interfaces that together make up RS485 + SinCos—a hybrid protocol that provides the benefits of both incremental and absolute encoders. But as single-cable technology continues to gain […]
