NexWay-S Series IP/AP Version 2
Our Global Standards for Compact Machine Room Elevators

Mitsubishi Electric's leading-edge technology has made it possible for elevators to conserve energy. The Regenerative Converter makes the most of power generated by the traction machine. Also, employing the Joint Wrap Motor and energy-saving features, the elevators use energy more wisely and efficiently.

Regenerative Converter (Optional)The elevator usually travels using power from a power supply (powered operation); however, when it travels down with a heavy car load or up with a light car load (regenerative operation), the traction machine functions as a power generator. Although the power generated by the traction machine is usually dissipated as heat, the Regenerative Converter transmits the power back to the distribution transformer and feeds to the electrical network in the building along with power from power supply. Compared to the same type of elevator without a Regenerative Converter, this system provides an energy-saving effect of up to 35%. (Reduction in CO2 emissions: 1400 kg/year) In addition, the Regenerative Converter has the effect of decreasing harmonic currents.

Joint-Lapped MotorSmaller carbon footprint
With the Joint Wrap Motor in traction machines, the iron core is split like a hinge, which allows coils to be wrapped around the core more densely, resulting in motor efficiency and compactness. It produces a high-density magnetic field for PM motors in traction machines that conserve energy and resources and reduce CO2 emissions.

Energy-Saving FeaturesCurbing energy consumption
Mitsubishi Electric offers features that help to reduce the energy consumption of elevators.

Energy-Saving Operation
- Number of Cars (ESO-N)
Curbing energy consumption

The number of service cars is automatically reduced to some extent without affecting passenger waiting time.

Energy-Saving Operation
- Allocation Control (ESO-W)

When a call is registered, the system controls car assignments considering the near-future traveling distance of all elevators.

Car Light/Fan Shut Off
- Automatic (CLO-A/CFO-A)

The car lighting/ventilation fan is automatically turned off if there are no calls for a specified period.
