ElevatorKERS

ELEVATORKERS

Cut elevator energy consumption by up to 70% by capturing and re-using energy

The up and down movement of elevators is in many cases a missed opportunity and a waste of energy. The ElevatorKERS recovers and stores the energy generated by the elevator to return it in the next consumption trip or to support the drive's standby. 

The ElevatorKERS can be installed in new buildings or retrofitted to existing elevators, increasing the energy efficiency of buildings significantly.

ElevatorKERS offers a solution for all types of loads and travel distances, and allows for an easy transformation of any elevator into a regenerative one.

Bi-direction, high-efficiency DC/DC converter with an integrated supercapacitor energy storage module

A simple connection to any VVVF drive is enough to make the elevator regenerate energy

Only a DC link connection needed for the system to automatically store the energy in a supercapacitor pack

Simple integration into new or existing elevators
