Green Energy Drive

Regenerative drives are another remarkable advancement in energy-efficient elevator The permanent magnet motors in MAGNUM Re-Gen drives are capable of bidirectional energy flow. When power flows into the motor, it creates a lifting torque on the shaft and elevator sheave, lifting the carriage.

When the carriage travels down, the motor acts as a generator, transforming mechanical power into electrical power and pumping current back into the facility’s electrical grid to use elsewhere. The Regenerative drive is the latest upgrade which enables power generation during stopping of the elevator.

Unlike the conventional drives which heat a resistor while dynamic braking, regenerative drive generates useful power which can be used by other lifts, electrical equipment or also can be fed back to the grid. This ensures efficient braking of the elevator.
