Residential Dumbwaiter Technical Information for Purchase Comparison


The Econo-Lift® residential dumbwaiter incorporates the most advanced controller on the market. This residential dumbwaiter controller can be mounted at the top or bottom of the shaft, or remotely located. The controller runs a very dependable 230 Volt 3 phase commercial grade electric motor / gearbox that incorporates a disc brake with a manual brake release (the heart of the system). The dumbwaiter controller converts the 115 volt power supply into 230 volt 3 phase for the elevator grade motor (from Germany not China).


The VFD drive (variable frequency drive) device gives full motor control and protection and includes soft start and soft stop. This type of motor / gearbox and controller are only found on high quality commercial grade units designed for 100’s of trips a day. Compare these controls, motors and mode of transportation to the competition, and you will see there is no competition! It is all about long term reliability and ease of maintenance.
