Proposed Solutions
Efficient movement with minimal wait time

TJEI to supply, install and maintain 128 elevator units that will operate at a speed of 3 meters per second. The elevators will be installed across 15-storey high 9 towers of the SDB.

India’s First 12-car group control system: to optimize elevator control, analyzing the movements of elevators in a building real-time and controlling them while predicting what may happen in the immediate future is crucial. Toshiba has developed the Real-Time Scheduling System (RTS) to control elevators properly and included it in elevator group control systems.

Destination Control System: reduces service time drastically, relieving passenger stress from rush-hour congestion in the morning and evening. By registering the destination floor before the elevator ride, DCS reduces the number of floor stops as the person who wants to move to the same floor can be collected at the same elevator. Once passengers get inside the elevator, they are no longer required to enter the destination floor. It removes the burden of the destination entry inside a packed elevator, thus improving passenger experience.

Elevator Monitoring System: EMS monitors elevator operation on real-time basis using several display screens. This interactive system is placed at a designated location for monitoring, controlling, reporting & for Real-Time Traffic Analysis.

Security & safety
All 128 Toshiba elevators will be provisioned with access control, Live TV, CCTV, fire emergency operation, maintenance and operation through EMS.

12 car DCS, tall door, tall cars, PMSM gearless motors, 3mps speeds, 24 passengers’ capacity, LED lighting

Highly efficient with lower friction roller guides are used instead of conventional sliding guide shoes to ensure superior ride comfort.
