GL-Power: modernization solution

High maintenance and repair costs, frequent downtime, lagging compliance with modern safety standards and high energy consumption: old gearless elevators present many challenges. You might have thought about replacing your equipment, but you don’t want your business to be disrupted.

Our GL-Power modernization solution increases your building value, delivers a smoother elevator ride and improves tenant satisfaction.

GL-Power lowers your costs

Gearless modernization, great results.

We can modernize virtually any gearless elevator, either thyssenkrupp models or other brands. With our GL-Power solution, your elevator will receive new gearless machine technology and a permanent magnet AC motor. Following modernization, you can expect lower service and maintenance costs and improved elevator performance.

As minimal installation space is needed, there is limited operation disruption, even within the narrowest spaces. If desired, the cladding can be kept intact to maintain the design for an overall increase in value for your like-new unit.

Optimized equipment management.

GL-Power modernization includes MAX, the elevator industry's first cloud-based digitally enhanced maintenance solution. MAX helps our technicians provide smarter service and increases your elevator uptime..

An efficient process

We can rejuvenate your units in a few simple steps.

Our modernization process has been designed to minimize interference with your everyday operations. There is no need for heavy equipment so we need less space to operate, which means limited disruption to your business.

With a narrow installation footprint, we can even replace one of several adjacent escalators or moving walks without affecting the others. In general it is a simple, four-stage process.

1. Examination

Our specialists examine the unit to be modernized, take measurements, and check its condition and accessibility.

2. Proposal

We develop a modernization proposal and a rebuilding project plan.

3. Project design

Our engineering team design the individual project and components are manufactured.

4. Rebuild

Rebuilding takes place on-site, including a site acceptance test, certification, and commissioning of the new unit.

Modernized equipment, just like new

Gearless Modernization

Included in GL-Power modernization

GL-Power Hotspot
TAC Series Controller

Our digital controller provides increased reliability, reduced wiring and optimized efficiency through its 32-bit microprocessor. The controller also includes MAX, the elevator industry’s first real-time, cloud-based predictive maintenance solution.

Regenerative drive

Replaces the motor generator. A sustainable option that harnesses the unused energy and captures it for reuse in the building power grid.

Refurbished machine and new AC motor

G2-Power+ modernization replaces the old gealess machine with a new one that has the latest technology. This direct-drive permanent magnet alternating current (AC) motor only runs when the elevator is in use, significantly reducing energy consumption. This gearless machine includes dual brake system, deflector and drive sheaves.

Universal door operator

This linear door operator with permanent magnet drive motor ensures a quick, smooth and quiet elevator door operation.

Fusion fixtures

A comprehensive selection of fixtures are included with this modernization package that are easy to install and safe for your walls. It includes a new car operating panel inside the cabin and new buttons as well as hall lanterns, hall stations and position indicators.

Modernized elevators have the same service life as a new unit

Save on high maintenance and repair costs. After the GL-Power process has been completed with all the necessary component replacements, your modernized unit will have the same service life as a brand-new one.

Easier maintenance with freely available spare parts

All-new standardized parts can be freely sourced, eliminating the need for special orders, extended downtimes and the expensive individualized parts required for older hydraulic elevator systems.

Passenger satisfaction

With upgraded components, every passenger will experience the benefits of modernization – improved reliability, ride comfort, lower noise and a fresh new look.

Enhances sustainability with energy savings

We provide a wide range of energy-saving options to maximize the energy efficiency of your equipment and can help you achieve the highest possible ISO 25745 rating.
