Express Lift DMR Control was an automatic programmed elevator system manufactured by The Express Lift Company under Westinghouse's patent, hence it is based on Westinghouse Selectomatic in the United States.

These elevators use direct current (DC) generators and can go up to 1200 FPM (round up with 6m/s), and uses gearless machine - the motor is on one end and the sheave is on the other end. It existed either from the 1960's or 1980's.
