Residential elevator brakes

KEB is best known in the Elevator market for our Elevator and Regen Drives.  But some are surprised to learn that we also manufacture brakes.   KEB manufactures armature-actuated brakes (not caliper or drum-style brakes) which are well suited for smaller motors used in residential elevator, MRL, and dumbwaiter applications.   This post provides an overview of KEB brakes and why they are well suited for elevator applications.   Spring applied operation KEB’s Combistop brake product is electrically released and spring-applied.  Sometimes these brakes are referred to as “failsafe brakes” because they will engage when power is removed.  This is...

Harmonic Filters for Reducing VFD Distortion

  VFDs create harmonic distortion. Any VFD using a bridge rectifier inherently draws harmonic current from the utility. The harmonic current draw causes voltage distortion on the mains which can create power quality issues for other electrical loads.   KEB Harmonic Filters are used to reduce VFD distortion and meet IEEE 519 distortion levels. Using a harmonic filter with a VFD reduces the amount of harmonic current, therefore, the voltage distortion on the mains is reduced.   For more how-tos, testimonials, and product announcements, be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel.        

Remote Monitoring for Elevators | Secure Tools for improved Diagnostics

Many manufacturers offer a remote elevator monitoring option, which includes real-time system information such as car position, status, fault logs and more. This comes as no surprise with the maturation of the internet, cheap server space, and an increasing number of networked devices. Slowly, elevators and escalators are intersecting with the “Internet of Things” (IoT). I will stay away from the promises of IoT in this article. My objective is to 1.)Briefly introduce the concept and possibilities of remote monitoring and IoT in relation to elevators and escalators 2.) Discuss the key features and benefits of KEB’s remote monitoring tools....

KEB’s top 7 of 2017

In 2017 KEB America was able to share more information than ever before with our fans and followers. We’ve been working hard to research new trends, create informative and fun videos, and put together interesting graphics and images to illustrate the control and automation world of today.   We wrote about new technologies and the old, tried-and-true tech we love. We made videos with some KEB customers to highlight our products in the field, and animations to show how it all works. We wrote about application-specific scenarios to give specific use-cases for KEB products. We’re so pleased to see the...

MQTT – modern data transmission for Industry 4.0

A fully-networked factory floor is the future of automation and manufacturing. Robots, cobots, and information going into and out of the cloud are helping us create better products faster and with more accuracy. The key to reaping the benefits of Industry 4.0 trends and the Industrial Internet of Things is communication.   In an ideal setup every component in the chain is able to communicate quickly, clearly, and reliably with the end user. If the data received isn’t up to par, all promises of remote monitoring and commissioning, advanced reporting, and real-time analytics go out the window.   The C6...
