Integrated, intelligent, intuitive: the next
generation in elevator control technology
Designed from the ground up using next-generation technology, iControl is the revolutionary
platform that outperforms today's industry-standard controllers. How? Through integration:
A system of components that work together, smoothly and automatically, to deliver the best
iControl delivers processing performance through the intelligent iBox processor and motion
performance through closed-loop-control, 16K PWM AC or 12-Pulse DC drives.
Configuration, diagnostics, and adjustments are handled through iControlware, a user-friendly
software suite designed specifically for iControl. iCue software, running on a centralized
dispatcher or an iBox in an elevator group, uses artificial intelligence to make optimal
An innovative, maintenance-free landing system uses sensors and magnetic encoding to
ensure absolute hoistway position - without tape or switches. iControl's cartop station
converts discrete car signals to serial communication for transmission to the iBox, reducing
traveler cable bulk and expense.
Through high-tech electronic integration, intelligent
buildings maximize efficiency, respond faster to
changing user needs, and control resources at the
lowest possible cost. It's precisely this kind of
building-sensitive, forward-thinking integration that
can maximize elevator return on investment and
maintenance value - with iControl.

- Modernization or new construction
- Low-rise through high-rise — up to 96
stops, as little as one inch between floors
- Gearless or geared, induction or permanent
- Groups to 15 cars
- 1,800 fpm, 9.15 mps
- Intelligent — automated calibration,
dispatching and traffic-handling allow
iControl to learn and optimize for specific
building requirements, increasing owner
and tenant satisfaction.
- System self-configures for standard
commissioning tests — you select the test,
iControl sets up for it.
- Intuitive — Windows-based user interface
is easy to learn and use, reducing installation
time and maintenance cost.
- Safe — the most direct, advanced solution
available, designed for ASME A17.1/CSA B44 and CSA B44.1/ASME A17.5 code compliance, with robust
engineering that anticipates updates.
- Cost-effective — streamlined, fieldconfigurable
hardware design. Fewer
components to install, maintain or replace.
- Flexible — modular software and hardware
layers accommodate changing system
needs, gracefully and economically.
- Responsive — robust Ethernet interface
facilitates secure remote monitoring,
remote equipment control, remote
diagnostics, even real time remote
troubleshooting and adjustment.
- Create and configure complex car and
group installations off site — then upload,
remotely or from the machine room. Create
and re-use a “golden” file with minor
adjustments from job to job.
Powered by intelligent iBox processor and closedloop
16K PWM AC Drive, or 12-Pulse DC Drive, and
supported by integrated system components:
Intelligent dispatching software
- Powerful, software-based dispatching engine
uses artificial intelligence to continually
optimize dispatching decisions.
- Easily modify, refine and scale configuration
to meet changing traffic patterns.
- Modular upgrades ensure long-term performance,
flexibility and return on investment.
- Real-time car status information delivered via
high-speed, high bandwidth network for
- Reduces traveling cable wires for labor and
material savings. Plug-and-play installation
reduces setup time.
- Traveler and hoistway cable tailored for
iControl. All conductors clearly labeled and
color-coded. Eliminate connection errors and
save installation time.
- Prevents doors from opening unless car
speed is within acceptable limits.
- Maintains absolute position of the car during
a power failure.
