iControl

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 possible performance.

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 dispatching decisions.

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.

Applications

  • 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 magnet
  • Groups to 15 cars
  • 1,800 fpm, 9.15 mps

Benefits

  • 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.

iControl features

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 optimized response.

iControlware suite

  • 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.
