    Interesting. Fair assumption to make that these days there are more circuit boards and less point to point wiring? How many floors does that elevator deal with?

    It’s an old school two speed AC motor. Most of the old school elevators similar to this have MG sets and DC hoist motors. Then they went to SCR drives with DC motors.  Now everything is back to AC with VVVF drives. So much cleaner.

    Yes. A very valid assumption. This particular elevator serves 11 floors.  Everything now is microprocessor based, closed loop feedback, artificial intelligence and far more energy efficient. Loadweighers weigh the elevator in 15lb increments to only apply as much juice is needed to move the elevator regardless of load. The big thing now is rather than having an up/down push button in the lobbies, there is a screen where you enter which floor you want to go to. It’ll send the elevator that will get you to your destination the fastest rather than the elevator that can pick you up the fastest. Seems like something small, but it’s huge for moving thousands of people in an office building in the mornings and at the end of the day.

    Like most other things, back in the day, a mechanic would answer a service call, spend a day tracing the problem back to a $50 relay and you’d get a bill for $2000. Now, a tech shows up, plugs a computer in, and replaces a $2000 circuit board.

    Just tossed this arrival into the fridge for the defrost-Sunday Funday for sure.
    8.7 lbs and this time it's the package starting to sweat having just left the SRF packaging/dry ice confines and not the camera/operator for the pic quality although I doubt many buy that.  B)

    @lousubcap Nice score.  My phone's camera takes sketchy shots of things with glistening surfaces as well.
