Residential dumbwaiter technical information for purchase comparison

The Econo-Lift® residential dumbwaiter incorporates a VFD (variable frequency drive) relay logic controller that comes with 3 LED lights on the top of the controller to ease in installation and trouble shooting. The LEDs monitor the following: 1 – Hoist-Way Doors Closed, 2 – Car Gate closed 3 – Final Limit, Slack Cable, and optional Access Door open safety systems. The controller requires a 115 Volt 15 Amp dedicated circuit, a standard plug is supplied but can be hard wired as well. This residential dumbwaiter controller can be mounted at the top or bottom of the shaft, or remotely located.  The controller runs a very dependable 230 Volt 3 phase commercial grade electric motor / gearbox that incorporates a disc brake with a manual brake release (the heart of the system). The controller converts the 115 volt power supply into 230 volt 3 phase for the motor using the VFD drive.  This type of motor / gearbox and controller are only found on high quality commercial grade units designed for 100’s of trips a day.  Compare these controls, motors and mode of transportation to the competition, and you will see there is no competition!  It is all about long term reliability and ease of maintenance.
