Schindler Elevator PORT technology offers Apps for greater efficiency and energy savings

October 31, 2011 - The Personal Occupant Requirement Terminal (PORT) from Schindler Elevator Corporation represents a shift in building efficiency, function and flow for building transportation by bringing customizable Apps to building environments, it says. According to the company, PORT Technology serves as an intuitive two-way communication interface that adapts to the specific traffic patterns of each tenant to provide increased efficiency and energy savings. The PORT system also includes an Energy Control Option (ECO) which defines the average acceptable waiting time for a building - when the current or anticipated waiting times fall below the specified level, ECO places the unnecessary elevators into standby mode and, in some cases, sleep mode. This helps reduce elevator trips - and energy - throughout the day, it explains.
