Elevator Weight and Overload Sensor

Passengers that just want to change floors do not take the time to consider all the technology that goes into the elevator they are riding. Today’s elevators focus a lot of safety, power efficiency, and comfort. One major thing passengers definitely feel and that is the smoothness of the ride up and down. Flexco’s sensor technology is bonded to your elevator structure, without any modifications, regardless of the brand, model or capacity of the elevator and results in accurate cabin load measurement. The end result is a smoother start/stop process. The Flexco Sensor constantly monitors the load inside the cabin and signals the motor that drives the cabin to apply the right torque when travelling. The Flexco Sensor is more accurate than traditional methods and offers a better over-time result without the need for frequent calibrations

Advantages of our patented technology are:

-no modifications to install “no drilling to apply sensor on structure”

-can be applied during fabrication (OEM) or on the field (retrofit)

-same elevator sensor for any brand, model or capacity

-reads the weight of the steel wire rope under the cabin “that increases as you go up”

-eliminates the need to apply multiple load sensors (no need for a sensor per rope)

-reads the right value no matter where the load is applied in the cabin

-connects to any system with the same wiring as any traditional steel rope sensor or load cell

-does not require frequent recalibration

-durability of sensor tested and approved by putting elevator through drop test with emergency brake system, after calibrating the sensors
