  • Machine room-less elevators have proven to be a smart choice for low- to mid-rise commercial and residential buildings, with operating mechanisms that enhance the rider’s experience, improve safety, and minimize downtime, and a gearless function that saves energy. This course examines machine room-less (MRL) elevators and includes discussions on the history of elevators, low-rise and mid-rise applications, industry standard configurations, and the green benefits achieved using machine room-less elevators.

  • Destination-dispatch technology has improved how buildings control elevators and optimized passenger mobility to achieve maximum energy efficiency. By grouping passengers with similar destinations, a significant number of benefits to the building owner and occupants are realized. This course discusses the key planning considerations for elevator projects and takes a look at the advantages of destination-dispatch elevators and how they provide solutions to the many challenges building owners and users face.
