Conservative estimates for Europe set the number of elevators at around 3 million units, over 10 million on a global basis.
According to the usage statistics provided by ELA, the European Lifts Association, Lifts and Escalators are used one billion times per day across Europe.
Given these usage statistics, there's no wonder that one of the major concerns for manufacturers and maintenance operators are those of reliability and safety.
Advantages of telemetry and remote control for the elevator industry
Using a machine-to-machine (M2M) application such as BITX can give lift manufactureres and maintenance and servicing operators an important contribution in order to:
improve service level and timeliness of maintenance visits.
reduce user's risks and injuries.
keep major parameters under constant control (sensors, usage stats, anomalies and alarms).
increase margins through a better lifts/technician ratio.
Thanks to the BITX system flexibility, the setup of a remote management application can be done on modern lifts (where a micro-controller is onboard) as well as on older installations.
