VDL200 AC Lift drive series for geared elevator systems

The VDL200 drive series is designed for low and medium rise geared applications in both open and closed loop with  asynchronous motors.

High-performance control algorithms allow installation in sensorless configuration while maintaining the comfort level provided by high-range inverters.

Available with built-in I/O and encoder card for Plug & Play installation, make the VDL200 ideal for modernizing obsolete systems as well as for new installations.

The drive conforms to amendment A3 in standard EN81 regarding Unintended Car Movement.

The advanced control algorithm guarantees high level performance even in open loop.

The Pre-torque function allows a smooth start.

Product Set-Up

  • The configuration set-up can be done by the following:
  • Optional alphanumeric keypad (KB-ADL)
  • PC with Graphical User Interface GF-eXpress

Easy and safe start-up
Thanks to the Wizard and the different access profiles (easy and expert) the configuration of the drive is fast and intuitive. The still autotuning is quickly performed, avoiding operators to decouple the car from the ropes, assuring a safe working environment and a faster commissioning.


  • KB-ADL multilingual programming keypad with memory (up to 5 configurations)
  • Dedicated external EMC filters (for version without integrated EMC Filter).
  • External braking resistors
  • AC and DC input chokes
