Within the range, its sales are rapidly decreasing, accounting for no more than 3%, and most of them are used for freight elevators or special elevators with large tonnage.
Traction drive small home elevators
Machine room-less traction villa elevators are being widely used in USA because of environmental protection, energy saving and building space saving. Like passenger elevators, according to the report of "World Elevator" magazine, it is predicted that machine room-less elevators will account for 80% of the global elevator sales in 2010.
Screw drive small home elevators

If an elevator needs to be installed in an existing residence, because the original structure of the house can no longer be damaged, a bottomless pit with its own well should be used. The home elevator saves the construction cost and construction space to the greatest extent, and at the same time takes care of the appearance and aesthetics of the house.
a. The door opening methods of small home elevators are divided into manual doors and automatic doors.
The structure of the hand-pull door is similar to the door commonly used in our homes, except that it has a door lock linkage device and is relatively heavy. At the same time, the hand-pull door has no car door protection design, which has an objective safety hazard; the automatic door is the same as the public passenger elevator. The difference is that more than 95% of villa elevators choose side-opening automatic doors, because the side-opening automatic doors can save the building area to the greatest extent and use the width of the shaft as much as possible At the same time, it can be convenient for the disabled and the elderly to use, fully reflecting its utility.

PLC control is the abbreviation of "Programmable Logic Controllers" in English, that is, programmable logic controllers. It is mainly used in the early industrial field and is also the main control method of elevators. In the 1980s, when the microcomputer control system appeared, PLC control was only used in the elevator field for sundries elevators, but it was basically eliminated by the microcomputer control system in the field of passenger elevators. Therefore, the choice of Jinghuai's microcomputer control system is The right choice.
c. Choose a small home elevator or a villa elevator driven by variable frequency, variable voltage and speed regulation VF.
The home elevator driven by variable frequency and variable voltage adjustment is selected to make its operation more comfortable, stable and energy-saving. In the choice of traction home elevator, the configuration of VVVF traction machine and frequency converter drive is adopted.
d. Choose small home elevators with LED lighting.
The biggest difference between LED lighting and traditional spotlights or incandescent lamps is that it is brighter, more environmentally friendly and energy-saving, and has a longer service life.
e. Try to choose a small home elevator with automatic rescue device (off-level floor) and automatic dialing device.
Private elevators are different from public elevators, which are used by a single family. Therefore, home elevators put forward higher requirements on safety protection, especially for the elderly or children in the family. If a power failure or failure occurs suddenly while using the elevator, choose a home elevator with automatic rescue device and automatic dial configuration. Maximum safety for your family. Of course, manufacturers will also ask for additional equipment costs.
