The UK's largest independent lift control panel manufacturer.


The MP2G or ALMEGA has proved to be the right combination for new and refurbished installations.

The combination of using our MP2G or ALMEGA processor with the Magnetek HPV® 900 II drive has worked well on many installations, using serial coms communication (ALMEGA only) between the drive and our processor. The processor also connects directly to our serial indicator and speech module, providing full programmability of up to 48 floors. The direct serial communication to motor drives (VVVF) provides better reliability and control, and a wealth of information can be accessed from the drive for diagnosis / monitoring purposes. Windows
application software is available to allow the user to change parameters and settings to suit the lift installation. The software also provides the user with diagnostic tools for viewing detailed information regarding the status of the lift and motor drive.

The HPV900 Series II AC Elevator Drive

The new range of Series II AC Drives are available to the elevator market for use with either MP2G or ALMEGA controllers. They are designed for both new installations and modernisation projects, and provide advanced closed-loop vector control for superior performance. The HPV900 II offers the fastest, easiest set-up adjustment, fewest call backs and the lowest total lifetime cost. This cost-effective AC drive gives you accurate acceleration and deceleration, resulting in a smooth ride quality for high and moderate-speed applications. Magnetek’s proven technical expertise, plus our superior customer service, has placed us as the world’s leading source of innovative, built-to-last elevator drives.
