Machineroomless Lifts (MRL)

Lester Controls offers a wide range of MRL controller solutions to complement your MRL lift, for projects from new installs to the modernisation of existing lift systems.

Our standard MRL cabinet is made from stainless steel and sized at 2100mm high x 440mm wide x 270mm deep.

This control panel houses the Almega II processor and up to 11kW (24Amp) on the Magnetek drive and 11kW (32Amp) on the Ziehl Abegg 4CS drive.

A new, slimline version is also available with the ALMEGA II processor and the Ziehl Abegg 4CS. With dimensions of 2100mm height x 200mm depth x 250mm width, it utilises serial push and indicator networks to reduce size and installation time.

The ZA 4C drive is mounted within the lift shaft and adjacent to the motor. A zetapad programming tool is fitted into the control panel to program, adjust and interrogate the inverter remotely.
