Miniaturized Equipment Suits Any Building
Mitsubishi Electricís advanced technology is driving a new age in elevator miniaturization. The newest models are not only more sophisticated than ever, they offer greater space savings. The traction machine, control panel and other key equipment can be adapted to suit required speed and capacity for any building use or design.

Compact Traction Machine
Mitsubishi Electric was first to replace induction motors with highly efficient permanent magnet (PM) motors for high-speed and super high-speed elevators, fully developed in-house. Since PM technology is uniquely suited to miniaturization, permitting the development of a more compact gearless traction machine for high-speed elevators that boast a 2.0 to 4.0 meters per second (6.6 Ė 13.1 ft./sec.) speed at a capacity up to 1600 kilograms (3,527 lbs.). Slim and efficient, the PM motor is a demonstration of Mitsubishi Electric proprietary stator core technology that results in a compact traction machine thatís about 30% smaller in axial dimension than previous models.

Compact Control Panel
The control panel that drives the PM motor incorporates the most advanced, low-loss IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) as well as optimal design. The result is a control panel less than half the size of previous models.
