Accurate Elevator Positioning with Rotary Encoders [Movie]

Passenger elevator systems are subject to high demands. They require a smooth acceleration, fast traveling times and precise braking. Rotary encoders perform the following tasks in elevator systems:

  • Position detection of the cab
  • Feedback from the elevator drive
  • Speed checks at the drive
  • Monitor speed limiters
