AM2 Lift Controller - Compact and low cost solution. <- Back


Compact and low cost lift controller board

AM2 has been designed specially for simple installations and elevators where it's required a particular attention to costs. Ideal solution for rebuilding and modernization, it allows the realization of very small elevator control panels due to its small size. It can be used for both hydraulic and traction lifts with APB or full/down collective operations. When used to control platforms/minilifts it can be set to operate either with manual, automatic or mixed call push buttons.

AM2 - Simple user interface. AM2 has a simple and intuitive user interface, thanks to the integrated menu selector you can quickly and directly manage a lot of functions: set the system parameters, analyze the fault list, register calls, start automatic sequence of calls for testing, manage the inspection operation, check the operative status of alert messages (via SMS and Email), check the GSM network signal, reset the factory settings with three different default configuration tables, perform some special operation such as manual rescue operation, overtravel test and others ...

AM2 - PC connection via USB port.
For a detailed analysis of elevator status and system settings AM2 can be connected to any PC directly via the integrated USB port. Today computers, especially laptops, do no longer have serial ports, standard now abandoned in favor of the faster USB connection. AM2 solves this problem by providing direct USB connection, system setting can be achieved by simply connecting the USB port to the PC so that the AM2 board is powered on and it's memory can be quickly adjusted.

LiftPro - Remote and local monitoring software.
LiftPro software can be installed on any PC, used for the adjustement of memory setting and for monitoring elevator status locally or remotely (via internet, LAN or GSM). System parameters are fully described and can be quickly set, files of memory setting can be simply managed, fault list can be analysed and saved on the PC ... all in a simple and intuitive way.
