For nearly a century Porter Medical Center has been providing quality care to patients in the Middlebury, Vermont area. In late 2014, we set out to develop a plan to modernize their main passenger elevator located in the Administration building. Our goal was to provide an ADA code compliant solution that provides a quality ride for passengers and minimizes the risk for unexpected downtime. To accomplish this task we installed a brand new system and some of the highlights include:
- Microprocessor control
- Variable-voltage variable-frequency drive (VVVF)
- High efficiency AC motor
- ADA traveling lanterns
- LED Digital Position Indicators
- Infrared door protection for both front and rear opening
When this project was completed earlier in 2016, the staff at Porter Medical could not have been more satisfied with the results. This modernization has improved their elevators reliability, acceleration, and deceleration. The new microprocessor control also has drastically improved passenger satisfaction by picking up riders in the most efficient ways possible. We are proud that we’ve been able to help such an important organization in the community and hope to continue our partnership for many years to come!
