This an old 1970s Express lift. This is (*was) one of the last DMR control systems left in the country. (best viewed in HD :)
- THIS EQUIPMENT HAS NOW BEEN RIPPED OUT - such a shame! :(
You are all viewing this movie because of kindness of one person, who used to be the YT star of lift movies - RIZZ BRIFF. THANK YOU. Post a comment if you remember...!
This video shows the other three lifts in this motor room. You can also see the vertically mounted DC generators (four in a line). This are fairly quiet running, compared to others that I've seen (and heard!! LOL).
In this video (near the end) is the "dispatcher" that decides 'which lift goes to which level' on the next video. This is pure 'relay logic'.
The end of the video shows a modernised lift car, but the still the old DMR controller and drive exists (you'd never know!).
Most of this was made in the Express Lifts manufacturing offices in Northampton before it was closed. Amazing stuff!
Hope you enjoy watching it.
