In the confineWorld’s First Ropeless Horizontal-Vertical Elevator System - continued

How Does It Work?

Thyssenkrupp MULTI applies the linear motor technology developed for the magnetic levitation train, Transrapid, to elevator cabins. Thereby enabling them to move in shafts in the same way that trains move in rail systems, with various cabins per shaft, and permitting vertical as well as horizontal movements inside buildings.

Safety is ensured by the multi propulsion and braking systems in the cabins, and the well-proven safety control system developed by thyssenkrupp for the TWIN elevator technology prevents cabins from getting too close to each other inside the shafts.

MULTI includes new elements such as new and lightweight carbon composite materials for cabins and doors, weighing a mere 50 kg instead of 300 kg in standard elevators, resulting in an overall 50% weight reduction as compared to standard technologies

Operating on the basic premise of a circular system, such as a paternoster, MULTI will use rope-less linear technology to operate elevators, and a single loop can incorporate various cabins.
