Day and night, twelve modern elevators had been whisking passengers to offices on the various floors of a particular Miami, Florida high-rise. But ThyssenKrupp, builders of this sophisticated elevator system, believed they could make a good thing even better. Faster communications would improve a number of important operations associated with the elevators. These operations included a card reader system that confirms passenger identities; a card reader override system that gives clearance to authorized visitors; calls to elevator cars; a floor security monitoring system; and an emergency stop switch control.
The existing system that controlled these functions extended from a CPU located at roof level to a computer console 1,200 ft. below in the lobby, well beyond Ethernet’s distance limit of 328 ft. To achieve its new goal, ThyssenKrupp required a means of accelerating data delivery along the 1,200 ft. communications channel that controlled all the intricate elevator operations. PoE extenders would be needed.
Discovering the Solution
Fortunately, ThyssenKrupp didn’t have to look far for a suitable solution. PoEx had already provided PoE extenders for another company project. The results were stellar. Inspired by a flurry of internal recommendations, project management confidently secured a set of Enable-IT 865 PRO PoE Extenders for the current task. They were ready to take things to the next level.
