The Benefits of the Telescoping Technology:

Cost Effective Saves time and money by eliminating drilling and its associated subterranean uncertainties — rock, shifting soil conditions, high groundwater tables and other hidden subsurface conditions.

Flexible Positioning of the telescopic plungers permits architectural flexibility in car design — single sliding, center opening, and front and rear opening door options, are all available. Ideal for sites with construction limitations, such as renovations, that would require inside drilling.

Environmentally Friendly As an above-ground solution, Otis' Holeless Telescopic Hydraulic minimizes the risk of soil or groundwater contamination and related problems and concerns.

Applications Ideal for installation at sites with known subterranean risks, waterfront sites and sites with high-water tables.

Timesaving installation. Energy efficiency. Environmental protection. Design flexibility. Enhanced safety systems.

Space Saving, Energy-Efficient, Clean The Gen2 system requires no machine room - the mechanism is at the top of the shaft. Lightweight, flexible, polyurethane steel belts permit the use of an energy-efficient machine.

Better for Architects, Builders and Owners The Gen2 system liberates architects to design buildings without the need for a machine room. Builders benefit from a rapid, controlled installation process that minimizes external trade interference. And owners enjoy an economical transportation system with more rentable space.

Clean, Efficient, Better for the Environment The Gen2 hoist stays clean as the belts and the gearless machine (which has permanently sealed bearings) require no oil. The synchronous permanent-magnet machine, with a radial air gap, is as much as 50% more efficient than a conventional geared machine.

The Gen2 systems electro-magnetic filter eliminated interference with the buildings other electrical system.

Superior Ride Comfort The Gen2 system is remarkably quiet and comfortable. The compact gearless machine,flexible belts on a small sheave and specially designed machine brake making for a quiet ride. No detail was left to chance. otis.com/products/listing
