Schindler Variodyn VF22BR

The Schindler Variodyn VF22BR is a custom design inverter for controlling a permanent magnet motor at very low speeds. NDC Elevator Drives provide repair for both the Variodyn drive and the associated MRL motor, giving you a single point of contact for elevator drive and motor repair.

The Variodyn VF22 is commonly used in flagship MRL elevator installations and ‘feature’ lifts, as an MRL (machine roomless) elevator drive the Schindler Variodyn drive is mounted inside the shaft with the motor eliminating the need for a separate machine room to provide drive and control for the elevator.

As a gearless elevator system the MRL motor must be tightly controlled when operating at low speeds to avoid any passenger discomfort.

Variodyn system is by far one of the most complex elevator drive systems to test outside the elevator and has taken NDC Elevator Drives many years of research and development to complete a suite of simulators inbuilt with the latest series of Miconic processor required to prove repairs 100% under an accurate recreation of real word operating conditions.

This dedication to quality and reliability has made NDC Elevator Drives a global leader in the supply and repair of elevator drives.

Available in a variety of rated capacity from 8 amp to 42 amp for differing applications the Schindler Variodyn VF22BR drive is the 22 amp model.
