Service at every level

SIDOOR door control systems for elevators are suitable for every door system, are fast and easy to install with single-button commissioning and are very maintenance-friendly. Thanks to the easily accessible data analysis that is possible via CANopen, you always know the condition of the elevator doors and when they require maintenance. Via the CAN interface at the SIDOOR AT40 CAN and the CANopen CiA 417 Lift application profile, you can use your own tools to read out the relevant door control data at the virtual terminal. In conjunction with the main controller, this can be broken down by floors across the building using a web server and WLAN.

To manage multiple locations, the elevator control allows service parameters and door status messages to be transmitted to MindSphere (the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens) and evaluated worldwide. The data evaluation is not limited to the door control system and is even possible for components of all manufacturers via the main control system with corresponding interface. The MindApp FleetManager enables condition-based maintenance.

Special CAN advantages on the example of the new SIDOOR AT40 CAN ADV

  • New operating and maintenance data allow a deep insight into the condition of the complete door system. This includes the total electrical and mechanical energy of the motor, as well as the travel times, the mechanical door energy, and the peak currents of the sword sections per door cycle, depending on the direction.
  • The operating status of the door control unit can now be queried in more detail via the CAN interface. The CANopen interface has been extended by the manufacturer-specific CAN object "Control state". The door control unit transmits the "operating mode" (undefined, learn run, initial mode, normal operation, error state) and the "operating display" (the ASCII value of the 7-segment display).

General advantages

  • Single-button operation for the entire commissioning process
  • Energy-optimized operation of the cage
  • Automatic motor detection for high system flexibility
  • High degree of operational safety thanks to protective motor design
  • Reliability, ruggedness, and precision for minimal maintenance and repair outlay
  • Protection of electronics against the improper application of force to the door
  • Optimal for existing constructions or retrofits
  • UPDATE: Holding torques in end positions of the door without door command
  • UPDATE: Configurable reaction of the light barrier (LB)
  • UPDATE: Light barrier (LB) can be deactivated
  • UPDATE: Slow travel to the "OPEN" end position.
  • UPDATE: Door mode available via CANopen
  • Manufacturer-independent plug and play through the CANopen CiA 417 Lift application Profile
  • Centralized and decentralized data analysis via the connected elevator control e.g. their web server or connection to MindSphere
  • Access from another CAN station with the "Virtual Terminal" function through parameterization and visualization on the SIDOOR terminal module
