Load Weighing Controls

Elevator Motors/Materials Corporation (EMCO) now offers the most versatile and complete line of load weighing sensors and controls to the elevator industry.

For traction elevators, EMCO can provide a variety of load sensors that can be located within the elevator hoist way. There are load sensors that can mount on the Cross Head (Model SV), Under the cab (Model TCA), under the Traction Machine (Model BPP) or on the traction ropes (Models LCA or SWK). Determine the easiest most effective location and we have a sensor solution.

For Hydraulic Elevators (Model CH100), we offer a load sensor that is easily integrated into the hydraulic lines and senses pressure change and corresponding load change in the cab.

EMCO offers a full complement of load controls that work in conjunction with our load sensors and are easily integrated with any elevator controller. Our Solid State Digital Electronic Load Controls (Model VK) are available with up to three customer programmable relays. In addition, these controls can be provide with a 4-20ma, 0-10vdc or serial communications that are directly proportional to load. This information can be used to determine full cab, empty cab and actual cab load conditions to optimize elevator capacity and insure passenger safety and comfort. There is also available a Cabin Display (Model MBD) that connects directly to each solid state electronic load control and provides a both visual and sound indications of load.

Finally, for traction elevators, we have a load weighing system that not only measures the load in the cab but also provides individual load measurement for each of the traction ropes of the elevator. With this load weighing system a technician can accurately determine the tension on each traction rope, quantitatively equalize the rope tension thereby increasing traction rope and traction sheave life.

EMCO’s load weighing system provides:

• Safe operation of the elevator for passenger and elevator by preventing overloads.
• Extended rope and sheave life.
• Better and more efficient operation of the elevator with accurate load measurement and communication to the elevator controller.

When it comes to a critical component in the operation and safety of an elevator, only the best will do.
