At the Tallest Building in Brooklyn NY – 333 Schermerhorn St. | KEB Elevator Drives Testimonial


Well fortunately for me, you know, being a
Local One adjuster I get to dabble in all the higher-end equipment, fast speed cars. We are at 333 Schermerhorn which happens to be the tallest building right now in downtown Brooklyn. This particular job we’re doing here is a
54, 55 story building depending on how you look at the buttons, because the buildings always market them higher. We got 1000 ft/min. high-rise cars here with KEB drives with motion controllers running them. And we have mid-rise cars here that are 800 ft/min. We have four high-rise and three mid-rise. I’ve adjusted for a long time and I’ve worked on a lot of drives but KEB is actually one of my favorite drives. There’s a lot of menus in there. I really like the COMBIVIS program. You can really get in detail and you can fine-tune and adjust the elevator. You can see a lot of things you can’t see
on any other drive. You can pinpoint problems and it’s very good for backing up the programs. And you know what, their technical support is definitely tops of all the ones that I’ve been dealing with. Working with a KEB drive which I find is probably about the most reliable drive out there as far as especially working with older equipment you have the range of adjustability that a lot of other drives, they don’t give you. Having the scope program, I’m telling you, it’s a key factor into adjusting rollback and pre-torquing, which, it’s only one of the drives that really
give you that feature. So in ending you know I just want to say I’m a very fortunate guy being able to be a Local One union guy for a long time and able to be involved in these type installations where, you know, Brooklyn is up and coming and, you know, we were able to get in on the biggest building right now that they have down there. And hopefully everything is all good with the controller and I know everything’ll run good with the drive.
