Motion 4000MRL

Motion 4000 MRL - A tailored solution for MRL hoistways

The MCE Motion 4000 MRL™ traction elevator package is the ideal solution for machine-roomless installations. 4000 MRL provides service to 32 floors/64 openings, speeds to 500 feet per minute, and group control of up to 6 cars. And, the MRL package provides a standard wavelength/infrared video-assisted rescue system, remote governor overspeed switch set/reset, and remote brake picking capability. Motion 4000 MRL makes the jobs of installers, adjusters, and maintenance personnel as straightforward as possible, stressing minimal hardware requirements, “out-of-the-box” job readiness, and simple adjustment.

*500 fpm (2.5 m/s) is possible, consult MCE for more information


  • Choose the landing system that suits the job. ELGO for fewer hardware requirements or LS-EDGE for specific code or NEMA 4X installations.
  • Final limits must be physical switches. Slowdowns may be virtual, saving installation time and effort. If required, ETS may also be virtual for ELGO landing systems; LS-EDGE systems use ETS magnets.
  • Hall call fixtures are connected serially along a simple, four-wire drop, providing signal communication and fixture power.
  • Universal I/O boards for field connections accept 24 to 120-volt inputs, AC or DC.


  • Factory pre-adjusted per job requirements.
  • Easy, hand-held device (mPAC) lets you learn and adjust floor heights and make car call entries. mPAC connects in the car, on the cartop or in the machine room.
  • Traditional MCE LCD display/keypad parameter entry.


  • Plug the hand-held mPAC into any controller or car CAN Bus port and diagnose the system.
  • Multiple, redundant, self-contained processors ensure reliable control and constant safety monitoring. Each processor is continuously aware of all system activity.
  • Components shared with MCE’s Motion 2000 hydraulic controller.
  • Available MCE TAPS (Traction Auxiliary Power Supply) for automated rescue in the event of power failure.
  • Built-in event log with 100 events.
