HydroElite VIDI

The top model from Hydroware

HydroElite VIDI, which is the top model from Hydroware, is an integrated drive and control system for hydraulic elevators. It is equipped with Hydroware’s unique valve system which makes it possible for the elevator to go with direct to floor travel, completely without creeping. The valve also does not need to bypass the oil at full speed upwards. HydroElite VIDI is equipped with an efficient air-cooled IE2 motor and frequency control. The rated speed is gradually reduced when the load exceeds 25 percent of the rated load, which greatly reduces the power requirement.

HydroElite VIDI is available in both H2 and V5 models. H2 is the latest and most innovative lift control system, and it is designed for both the HydroElite H2 and TractionElite H2. With H2, you get one supplier for all your projects, simple installation and a future proof product thanks to our IoT capabilities.

Benefits with every HydroElite VIDI (H2 and V5)

Significantly reduced power demand and low energy consumption

HydroElite VIDI is equipped with a current-limiting drive and an air-cooled IE2 motor. Thanks to accepting that the speed is regulated down slightly from a load of 25%, you can reduce the power requirement up to 70%. According to VDI4707, only 20% of all trips are with more than 25% load. The air-cooled motor and the unique valve’s properties also reduce energy consumption by up to 70% compared to other conventional systems.

Quick installation

HydroElite VIDI is pre-assembled and function tested in our factory, which shortens the installation time. Commissioning is easily done with the help of a learning journey for the hydraulics and one for the floor plan setting. No manual adjustments are required and the valve accuracy increases for each trip.

Increased capacity and comfort

Direct approach to the floor and the fact that no bypass of the oil is needed gives shorter travel time and increased travel capacity. In addition, the reaction time from a command to start is very short due to the fact that the entire system is perfectly tuned, which also helps to increase the lift’s capacity and comfort.

No overheated oil

Thanks to the valve’s unique properties, more trips can be made without the oil getting too hot. The air-cooled motor helps keep the oil cool. With a HydroElite VIDI, you normally do not have to worry about overheated oil and there is normally no need for an energy-intensive oil cooler.

Safer with a supplier

The fact that the drive and control system come from the same supplier provides increased security and easier handling in terms of support, service and guarantees throughout the lifespan of the lift.
