Eco-efficiency for escalators and autowalks to reduce energy consumption
by at least 22%.
With the addition of an inverter for controlling the speed of your equipment, even greater energy and cost savings are possible. The inverter also enables certain special features that can be ordered separately.
ECO-PACK 2 FEATURES:
||Stand-by speed. |
The escalator runs at reduced speed when there are no passengers on the step band.
||0.4 m/s speed.|
The reduced speed saves energy, increases safety and is easy on equipment without significant increases in transport time.
PLUS ALL THE FEATURES INCLUDED IN ECO-PACK 2:
||Stop & Go operation |
When no one is using it, the escalator stops for a definable interval until the next passenger arrives.
||LED Traffic lights|
LEDs use up to 80% less energy and last twice as long as conventional lighting.
||KONE EnerCal |
The energy consumption report helps to estimate the total energy consumption and savings of your specific solution.
||Environmental Production Declaration |
The EPD provides information on the materials used in making your KONE equipment and on related CO2 emissions.
|SAVINGS AND PAYBACK TIME*
||MAIN BENEFITS OF ECO-PACK 2|
|Reduction potential of up to
–22.2 %, which equals:
–2016 kg CO2 /year
Payback time of 3 years
||– Lower speeds possible, resulting in less wear and tear.|
– Smooth starts and stops, resulting in less stress on components.
– Running on lower speed keeps each bearing lubricated.
– Less noise at lower speeds (0.4m/s, 0.2m/s)
Optional special features:
Lubrication-free step chain. The chain requires no extra lubrication. This reduces wear on chain links and bushings and decreases fire risk.
Helical gear transmission. Substantially higher energy efficiency than the standard worm gear transmission even at low speeds.
LED lighting in handrail, skirt, comb, soffit and cove. LEDs use up to 80% less energy and last twice as long as conventional lighting.
Re-generative solutions. Energy can be recuperated from the downward momentum of a passenger-loaded escalator.
|GREEN BUILDING CERTIFICATION|
|KONE Eco-Packs for Escalators and Autowalks are an important step towards gaining green building certification (e.g. BREEAM or LEED). |
