Imperial Electric, an industry leader with over 100 years of experience in electromechanical devices bring Gearless AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Machines to the elevator market.
Unlike traditional induction motors that lose efficiency at lower speeds, Imperial gearless AC machines provide unusually capable low speed, high torque operation - and consume up to 40% less power than traditional asynchronous motors. Imperial gearless AC machines are also noticeably quieter than the competition and are nearly maintenance-free.
Imperial machines are known for durability and reliability. Imperial gearless AC machines use rugged cast iron frames protecting a totally enclosed, self-cooling motor. Machine brake and sheave assemblies are removable and replaceable - features that will provide cost savings over long years of service.
