LIFT Journal reports | Lift UPS technology for a prime Stuttgart property
Enough power had to be available in a very cramped space in the event of a blackout for continued lift travel, control, emergency calls, emergency lighting, ventilation and car lift for the ten lifts. The greatest challenge here was that trips underway at the time were not to be interrupted to ensure comfortable evacuation of the passengers at the next landing.
“The wish list of the operator of the prime property completed in 2007 in Stuttgart’s CBD included several difficult tasks,” according to Effekta. Just six months after the first briefing, a UPS system providing up to 4,500 W for lifts for at least 30 seconds had been provided, as requested. As a result, the lifts continue to move to the next landing in the event of a power failure and the passengers can be evacuated. In addition, emergency calling, car light, ventilation and car control can remain in operation if grid power remains unavailable.
