MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. − October 2, 2017 – Magnetek, a leading designer and manufacturer of elevator drives, will be exhibiting their line of elevator products, including the new HPV® 1000 AC Elevator Drive, at Stand 3195 in Hall 3 at Interlift 2017, being held in Messe Augsburg, Germany, October 17-20.

“Magnetek’s new HPV1000 provides the European market with the most reliable hardware platform combined with the best ride quality,” said Ed Butte, director of Magnetek’s elevator business. “HPV1000 offers a familiar, user-friendly parameter layout and controller interface common with other Magnetek elevator drives to ensure quick, easy setup.”

The HPV® 900 AF and Quattro® AC Cube drives will be on display at the Company’s stand. Designed with modernization in mind, the HPV 900 AF drive uses patented technology to operate today’s machine room-less (MRL) axial flux disc type motors. This unique solution provides plug-and-play installation and delivers optimal performance. Easy setup is made possible by the integrated digital operator, similar to other Magnetek elevator drives.

The Quattro AC Cube regenerative drive is designed to meet today’s growing need for green building solutions. This innovative drive comes in an evolutionary compact design that typically takes up less than one-third of the space of a traditional regenerative drive solution and includes near unity power factor, less than eight percent total harmonic current distortion as standard, and unique voltage boost feature that can ensure reliable elevator operation on sites where the incoming power supply is inconsistent.

Visitors will also learn how Magnetek’s high-performance RegenAC™ regenerative braking unit reclaims excess regenerative energy from the motor and supplies it back to the 3-Phase AC power system. It offers the latest regenerative technology, along with higher current capacity for use with larger motors.

Finally, recognizing the increasing demand to provide a means of operating lifts in power loss situations, Magnetek will also be displaying their Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) modules, which complement their drives.

Visitors will be able to engage with Magnetek’s elevator drive experts to learn how to save both energy and money while improving reliability of their lifts. Magnetek’s Customer Information Portal, featuring an improved Energy Savings Calculator, will be available for visitors to explore.
