Weidmüller FieldPower® Elevator: Innovative shaft wiring system for elevator technology. – FreeCon Contactless: maintenance-free and contactless power transmission solution of up to 240W. – Technical presentation: "Automated Machine Learning makes data analysis tangible"
Weidmüller is presenting customised solutions for the elevator and escalator industry at "interlift 2019". This includes the innovative FieldPower® Elevator shaft wiring system and with FreeCon Contactless a maintenance-free power transmission solution, that allows to charge future-proofed cars contactless. As a partner for the elevator industry going back over many years, the team of specialists at Weidmüller have a broad range of skills and a great depth of understanding for customer applications. Our experts will be available on all days of the exhibition to engage in intensive dialogue with customers. Interested visitors can get the latest trends related to data analytics by attending the technical presentation "Automated Machine Learning makes data analysis tangible" that is being held at the VFA Forum in Hall 2 at 12:30 pm on Thursday 17th October 2019.
Weidmüller aspires not just to deliver individual components but to develop solution concepts that simplify working processes and drive up equipment efficiency. With "FieldPower® Elevator", their portfolio includes a correspondingly innovative installation system for elevator technology that directly addresses this aspiration. The installation system revolutionises shaft wiring. It stands out through its significantly reduced installation times, allowing the work to be carried out much more simply and rationally, and free from errors. There are two key components at the heart of the system: the elevator shaft wiring box and an 11-pole flat cable. The low number of components optimises logistics costs and simplifies project management. This is a particular advantage when it comes to the modernisation of existing installations.
The elevator shaft wiring boxes are designed to meet exactly the requirements of the elevator industry, irrespective of whether it is a question of passenger elevators, goods elevators, new installations or modernisation projects. The twin-pointed piercing contacts in the elevator shaft wiring boxes guarantee a reliable connection of the flat cable. The PUSH IN technology of the connection terminals on the back of the "box", facilitate the rapid wiring of safety circuit, command buttons and floor displays. Different functionalities such as shaft feed-in, floor connector and shaft pit connector for the transmission of power, signals and data are possible with the Weidmüller FieldPower® Elevator System. The installation of the shaft wiring boxes is done in simple operational steps, without the need for any special tools.
Think about a future without elevator travelling cables, when 5G network in the shaft enables data transmission and you install a contactless power transmission on floor level, e.g. to charge a battery in the car. Such future-proof technology is already available from Weidmüller: By means of inductive resonance coupling, FreeCon Contactelss allows to transmit power over an air gap – maintenance-free and with maximum efficiency. Contact-related failures can be avoided and maintenance costs significantly reduced. Make your cars ready for the challenge of tomorrow, with contactless power transmission of up to 240W.
Data is continuously generated in elevators and escalators. Companies who succeed in translating this data into innovations gain decisive competitive advantages. With a user-friendly software, Weidmüller is now making artificial methods available to manufacturers of elevators and escalators as well as their operators, without having to become data experts themselves and to share their domain knowledge with external partners. The universal application supports the users in both initial model generation and further development, the model can then be transferred directly into the architecture of the target system.
According to "from sensor to cloud“ Weidmüller supports the integration of sensors, data gathering and pre-processing, as well as cloud connectivity and easy visualizations of Elevator status and recommended maintenance actions – for new installed business as well as for upgrading the existing installation base.
