KEB Elevator App Overview Tutorial – Getting Started

Jake Wattenphul | February 23rd, 2021

Welcome to the KEB Elevator App! This will be an overview of how to get up and running. We will go through how to connect to the drive, how to find diagnostic screens, save parameter lists, and email parameters to technical support for assistance.

Before we get started, you will need these things to connect the drive to your Bluetooth enabled Apple or Android mobile device.

1 – Bluetooth Dongle / Part # 0058060-KT31

2 – LCD Keypad (Software v3.31 and above)

Prior to establishing connection, set your Bluetooth setting in your Apple or Android device to ON. Baudrate must be set to 38400 on operator in Special Functions/LX12/Baudrate to connect to KEB Elevator App. Next, launch the KEB Elevator App on Google Play or on the Apple App Store. Once the KEB Elevator App has launched please agree to the EULA by selecting the proper country and accept the agreement.

If this message prompts up (Figure – 1), please click OK to allow the KEB Elevator App to connect and communicate with lift operator.

Once the device is connected, the user should see a BLE RS232 signal (Figure – 2) in the connection screen. Please select the BLE RS232 signal to establish the connection. While connection is being established, the app will prompt for a password. Please enter “123456” for the password. Once the password has been entered, click Pair to establish connection. See Figure 3.
