Kubler 4/16/2018

KublerThe Kübler Group is one of the leading specialists worldwide for position and motion sensors, slip rings and further transmission products as well as for counters. Kübler has now entered into a development cooperation with the Austrian company Variotech, which is regarded as a specialist for elevator electronics. Together they have developed an innovative solution for absolute shaft copying (LEB / LES).
 
Variotech has many years of experience in the elevator industry and knows the demands on safety technology very well. Variotech is now using this experience as part of a development cooperation with Kübler to make the safest means of transport in the world - the elevator - even more modern and safe.

In the future, the newly developed shaft copying system will be produced at the manufacturing site in Villingen Schwenningen and marketed worldwide by Kübler. The SIL3-certified measuring system is characterized by its robust and compact design. Based on a 100% slip-free position feedback, further components such as magnetic switches in the elevator shaft are now a thing of the past. This not only saves installation and maintenance time, but more importantly it also reduces the total cost of the elevator system.

With 10 subsidiaries and over 50 strong partners, Kübler offers worldwide expertise, professional advice and on-site application support. This guarantees an optimal integration of the measuring system into the elevator shaft.
