Gen2® Machine-Roomless Gearless Elevators
The Gen2 systems method of hoisting the coated steel belt goes well beyond the limitations of conventional wire rope. The belts increased strength and flexibility allowed Otis to redesign the elevators key components into a compact, integrated unit that fits in the hoistway, eliminating the need for a machine room. And the Gen2 systems controller is compact enough to fit in the hoistway, so theres no need for a control room.
Green Technology - Standard
ReGen® drives capture normally wasted energy and turn it into usable electricity. This makes Gen2 systems up to 75 percent more energy efficient than conventional systems. Gen2 elevators use highly-efficient LED lighting and a sleep mode that powers down the elevator lights and fan when not in use.
The Gen2 systems method of hoisting - coated steel belts - eliminates the metal-on-metal contact of steel ropes and sheaves used by traditional systems. The result is a remarkably smooth ride with noticeably less vibration and noise.
Minimal Jobsite Coordination
With integrated components and proven work practices, Otis streamlined the installation process. And Otis has the industries shortest lead time of 6 weeks. Builders benefit from a more controlled installation and flexibility to more accurately plan their projects.
