Elevator or lift cables are the link between the controller and elevator trolley, and are responsible for the power and signal transmission. They are usually multi-conductor cables constantly in motion, thereby they need to have a long life.
The main requirements for the elevator and lift cables are:
- Torsional balance
- Minimize vibrations
- Abrasion resistance
- Flame resistance
- Low temperature performance
It is important to highlight that elevator and lift cables should be designed for minimum strain on the copper conductors, and can be with a round or flat configuration. Round configuration has a great flexibility in terms of number and size of the components within one cable. The Tope configuration, which is its own variation, is extremely suitable within space-constricted areas. The flat configuration has a parallel structure and is made up with all components set side by side with an overall sheath.
Today, elevator cables contain different sizes of wire and components depending on their final aim. Standard elevator cables should be used for signalling and telecommunication / data circuits. In order to minimize electrical and electromagnetic interferences, optical fibre can be used to ensure a better performance.
