- For the elevator control system, Please refer to Schindler Miconic Controls.
Schindler Miconic 10 was an elevator dispatching system product of Schindler. It was invented in 1992 by Schindler's engineer, Dr. Paul Friedli as the world's first practical destination control system to enchance traffic efficiency.
In 2000, Schindler introduced their second generation destination control system called SchindlerID, which was based on the Miconic 10 but incorporates RFID card reader to check passenger's access rights. The success of Miconic 10 led to the creation of Schindler's third generation of destination dispatch; The PORT Technology in 2009. Both Miconic 10 and SchindlerID was discontinued in 2012 and succeeded by Schindler PORT. However, it is still made for Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Brazil and Turkey. Also, many Schindler PORT installations can still use Miconic 10-design keypad (Z-Line fixtures).
Schindler Miconic 10 uses a revolutionary traffic management system that brings people to their destinations faster than any other elevator control. The system works by grouping passengers grouping people travelling to the same floor and allocate them to individual elevator cars. The individual elevators are then routed in the group so that they serve only certain floors, thus reduces the number of intermediate stops and thereby improves the elevator system efficiency.
Instead of "calling a car by push buttons", the destination floor is put in on a decimal keypad. Passengers enters their desired destination floor using the keypad and the display will show them the elevator car that they must take to get to their desired floors. When entering, they need to check whether their desired floor(s) have lit on the destination indicators found in the car's inner door jambs. Once they are inside the elevator, the doors will close and the elevator will go straight to their desired floors. They don't need to select floors inside as there are no visible floor buttons on the car station other than door open, door close and alarm buttons. Upon arriving at a floor, the floor number on the destination indicators will flashes and disappears once the elevator stops.
- Advance knowledge of every passenger’s destination before they even reach the elevator.
- Reduced passenger journey times.
- Elimination of crowding during heavy traffic.
- Assurance of a dedicated service for people with special needs.
- Greater design flexibility for building core configuration.
