Schindler launches new modular hitech elevators

July 2020

Schindler, a leading global provider of elevators, escalators and related services, has launched its new modular elevator generation equipped with innovative technologies, including touchless technology, advanced connectivity, and additional digital services that allow for a brand-new passenger experience.

Rapid urbanisation, coupled with an increasingly aging population, is driving demand for more intelligent cities that put people first. In response, Schindler has created an elevator range based on a new modular approach with harmonised systems and components.

Next to providing a more seamless and interactive user experience, the new range will improve the way elevators look and feel, while giving architects increased design freedom and providing building owners with instant performance tracking in real-time.

Schindler says it will begin releasing globally the new modular elevator range, named Schindler 1000, Schindler 3000, and Schindler 5000 during 2020, starting with Asia and Europe.

“We add the extra to the ordinary and have built a new modular elevator generation with customers and passengers in mind,” remarks Christian Schulz, member of the Group Executive Committee, responsible for operations.

“One example is that the elevator can now easily be used as an infotainment platform,” he states.

According to Schulz, the new range also enables real-time performance tracking and adaptive maintenance, reducing downtime of the units, while integrating Schindler’s touchless transit management system Port into its entire product range. All these new functionalities are channelled via leading cyber security standards, he adds.

Moreover, as health and well-being have become even more important in recent months, Schindler recognises the need for innovative contactless solutions, says the official. In response, the new generation incorporates into common existing solutions touchless functionality such as gesture-controlled landing operating panels and an interface that allows users to remotely interact with the operating panel by using the myPort smartphone app.

Along with introduction of the new elevator generation, Schindler is relaunching Schindler Digital Plan and Design, a web-based application for architects and planners to plan and design an elevator tailored to their individual needs.

In addition, the new elevator range shows lower carbon dioxide emissions with less environmental impact compared to today’s solutions, it adds.
