Magnetek to Showcase Modernization Techniques at 2015 Every Building Conference and Expo
MENOMONEE FALLS, WIS. ─ May 27, 2015 ─ Magnetek, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAG), a leading designer and manufacturer of elevator drives, will be exhibiting at BOMA International’s 2015 Every Building Conference and Expo being held in Los Angeles, June 28-30. Recognized as “the” drive supplier to the elevator industry, Magnetek’s products provide superior performance, reliability, and energy savings, all of which reduce costs for customers considering DC or AC systems in new buildings, modernizations, or component upgrades.
Visitors to Booth 530, located in the Green Pavilion, will gain an understanding of Magnetek’s approach to elevator modernizations including best practices, energy saving solutions, and how Magnetek’s drives extend the useful lives of elevators at a fraction of the cost of motor drive system replacements. Magnetek’s Energy Savings Calculator, which will be available in the booth for demonstrations, can generate a quantitative comparison of existing installation energy use versus drive modernizations to determine potential energy savings of future projects.
“Modernizing is an efficient solution that delivers improved elevator performance and allows building owners to retrofit existing equipment at a much lower cost than complete machine replacement,” said Ed Butte, director of Magnetek’s elevator business. “Operating modernized elevator systems that are from 25 to 45% more efficient not only saves on energy costs but, coupled with new controller technology, can reduce wait times for customers and help deliver efficient, state-of-the-art ride experiences.”
