Elevator monitoring – Intelligent interaction of sensors, software and services

The benefits of elevator monitoring at a glance:

High level of transparency

Information on the status and conditions of the elevator and any incidents that occur is available and recorded 24 hours a day

Easy to retrofit

The easy retrofit solution can be installed quickly in less than 30 minutes – no matter what kind of elevator or what control unit is in use

Lower costs

Cost savings achieved by detecting faults immediately and optimizing maintenance cycles

Modules of the Bosch elevator monitoring solution:

The elevator monitoring system from Bosch makes the operation of elevators more efficient, more reliable, and safer. The interaction of sensors, software and services provides the foundation for creating intelligent elevator solutions.

1. Sensors ensure status and fault detection

Sensorbox

The sensor box, designed as a plug-and-play unit, takes less than 30 minutes to install on top of the elevator cab roof. The hardware requires no hardwired connection to the elevator control system, and fits on any elevator, irrespective of the make or model. The acceleration sensors included in the unit detect and record the elevator condition data such as its current position, travel movements, the number of door openings, and any potential unscheduled elevator downtimes. All incidents of malfunction are recorded in a traceable manner.

Screenshot of the Bosch Elevator Cloud

The data generated by the sensor box are collected and analyzed in the cloud. The user-friendly operator interface displays the elevator’s current status, the position of the elevator cab, and the number of trips. The dashboard is available for display in a map mode as well as a list view, providing information on the elevator. In the event that any operator-specified parameter setting is exceeded, the maintenance or repair measures needed to rectify the condition are initiated. This high level of transparency of elevator status and condition reduces downtimes to a minimum.
