Main features & Overview


In the Civil Lifting sector, the ADL500 inverter is the most advanced, most complete technological platform. Travel comfort, reliability and performance to meet each of the system's specific requirements, identified in individual product configurations that provide the user with an appropriate technical and economic choice.

The ADL500 family is therefore divided into three configurations: ADL550 - ADL530 - ADL510, designed for “High-end” or “Medium-end” installations, but also for “Low-end” applications or modernizations.

  • ADL550 & ADL530: specific for installations requiring high degrees of performance, travel comfort, with the added benefits of universal drive management and speed feedback.

The broad power range meets the most stringent system dimensions and the ADL550 series also guarantees the highest levels of operational safety.

  • ADL510:  designed for “geared” motors dedicated to open loop control. Thanks to its limited number of parameters and start-up and optimization wizards, it is simple and user friendly.




  • Functions to void roll-back and suppress vibrations upon start-up.
  • “Direct Landing” positioning at the floor.


  • Safe Torque Off (STO-SIL3): Can use drive with no output contactors.
  • Electronic Brake Control (EBC-SIL3): External device to replace electromechanical brake control relays (component life: 10+ years)


  • Built in universal multi-encoder card.
  • DC battery management system for emergency operation with built-in module

Smart Communication

  • Wireless drive programming via Wi-Fi module and GF_Liftouch web application
  • Drive monitoring and remote access via 3g/4g gateway and GF_Liftouch web application
