The solid state logic elevator controllers will have integrated circuit boards as well as transistor circuits. It helps to provide easy fault diagnosis, improved reliability and lower power consumption when compared to relay controllers.
Solid State Elevator Controller Applications
- Commercial low rise buildings such as offices, hospitals and hotels
- Duplex groups and single lift elevators
- Passenger lifts in 12 story of less building such as residential buildings or small hotels
- Drive speeds less than 2m/s
Relay Elevator Controller
Relay controllers are made of electromagnets that will close and open dry contacts and will route the logic to various circuits. Relay controllers are best for elevators that only have few stops and use manual door operations. However, relays can be used for complex elevators and they were a big part up until 1980s. Although, the number of relays that are needed for newer elevators can make it an issue to troubleshoot when there is a problem.
Relay Elevator Controller Applications

- Single lift elevators
PLC Elevator Controller
Because of personal computers, micro processing technology has become affordable. PLC elevator controllers will use microprocessor technology to control the logic on complex elevator situations.
PLC Elevator Controller Applications

What An Elevator Controller Is
Elevator controllers are electronic devices that will manage visual monitoring, interactive command control and traffic analysis system control to ensure that the elevator is functioning right.
The main function of the elevator controller is to receive and process signals from various elevator components. It is able to send response signals to the signals it receives to keep the operation of other parts in the system. The signal exchanging is how an elevator controller is able to keep the elevator running smoothly every day.
How Elevator Controllers Interact With Other Components
- Controls the door opening device for operation of the elevator doors.
- Is able to set off alarms cause by passengers or excess load signals.
- Provides lift feedback for elevator passengers through button lights, direction displays and floor number displays.
- Process position marking information to know where the elevator cab is as well as the speed they are traveling.
- Processes information sent to the controller by load sensors to ensure that the cab does not exceed the safety weight limit.
- Queue and processes elevator floor requests that are provided by passengers through button pressing signals.
- Controls the speed of the elevator engine to move the elevator cabs in the shaft.
