The Most Advanced Electronics And Design On The Market.  

Elevation Innovation has proprietary custom electronic microprocessor dumbwaiter circuit boards.  We have developed our electronics in-house and have complete control of all aspects, from design to software integration.  Our custom electronics allow us to serve up to six floors with one cat 5 data line from floor to floor.  We are the only dumbwaiter manufacturer with this simple plug and play technology.

State Of The Art Dumbwaiter Motor Control And Protection.

We use a VFD drive in every dumbwaiter controller we build.  The “Variable Frequency Drive” is a computer controlled device that gives us complete control of the motors functions.  With the use of the VFD it allows us to take 115 volts single phase standard current and converts it to 230 volt 3 phase power for our motors.  Every dumbwaiter we sell uses a VFD and 230 volt 3 phase motor made in Germany not China!

Dumbwaiter Features

Residential Dumbwaiters – Our residential units feature Russian birch cars.  These dumbwaiter cars are constructed with CNC dove tail joints that are glued and nailed.  They have two coats of clear lacquer on them for protection.  The birch car is much more pleasing to the eye in a residential application than industrial powder coated steel.  However we do offer the powder coated steel and stainless steel cars for other applications such as moving fire wood etc.  All lifts are furnished with a roll up style gate system.   All residential dumbwaiters can be supplied with a movable shelf system.

Commercial Dumbwaiters – Our commercial dumbwaiter cars are constructed from stainless steel or mild steel with a powder coat finish.  Each car comes with fully adjustable shelf mounting locations.  The commercial units are available with bi-parting, slide up or roll up gate systems.  A car light is available on all units and standard on the 300 / 500Lb. systems.
