Show Preview: NAEC Convention | Elevator Technology from KEB America

Jake Wattenphul | September 3rd, 2019

The annual NAEC Convention and Exposition takes place September 18-19, 2019 in Grand Rapids, MI. For nearly 50 years, KEB has been a part of the elevator industry, and this year we’re excited to highlight our elevator and regenerative drive technology for high-speed applications, as well as solutions for escalator and elevator safety.

Escalator technology from KEB America

Compact and efficient variable frequency drives from KEB are ideal for escalator applications. Compared to line-fed escalators, an escalator using a VFD will have a smoother ride and will perform better overall. Our ASCL technology eliminates the need for a motor encoder on the drive, saving you money. Other highlights include:

  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Reduced inrush currents to motor
  • Smooth speed profile ramps
  • Open-loop, closed-loop, and ASCL control modes

Functional safety for elevators

Our customers know that a fast response to safety events and detailed information about fault states can save time and money. The Functional Safety capabilities of KEB products allow the device to shut down in a pre-programmed “safe” mode ensuring a fast response and no damage to the device or surrounding equipment. Functional safety solutions from KEB have been third-party audited by Lift Instituut and are in accordance with IEC 61508-SIL3 and ISO 13849-PL e. 


The F5 elevator drive from KEB also supports the STO (Safe-Torque-Off) safety function.


You’ll find KEB America in Booth 408 during the 2019 NAEC Convention. We’d love to say hello and show you our great products in person.
