Dynamic Braking Resistors for Elevators – Impact on Elevators Efficiency
Elevator installations in residential and industrial high-rise buildings have become such a basic requirement that builders and engineers don’t pay special attention to it anymore. Elevators seem to be a fairly simple component in a massive building project during construction. However, they become a regular cause of breakdown and maintenance shut-offs afterwards. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Consumer Product Safety Commission, thousands of people sustain injuries, and in few cases even fatalities due to elevator malfunction every year.
One of the most critical factors influencing an elevator’s performance and safety is the braking mechanism. The braking system is responsible for ensuring its safe downward slide, slow down and stopping at the appropriate levels within the designated times. The margin for error is near Zero in any industrial equipment that involves human safety, so the braking mechanism must guarantee not 99%, but near 100% reliable performance every time.
