Ease of use also a winning factor
Lift safety and communication specialist Avire has installed its latest LCD multimedia display, the E-Motive iS2, at the City Exchange office building in Trinity Leeds.
"We were looking for a system that was easily installed and easy to use,” explained Dave Downes, technical services manager for City Exchange, "and that’s when we came across the iS2. It ticked all the right boxes.”
LCD power consumption reduced
City Exchange’s lift service provider suggested the iS2 as a solution. As part of a general refurbishment programme, City Exchange had decided to upgrade the displays in the seven-storey building’s four lifts. Changing graphics or information on the existing displays had proved an extremely time-consuming and costly process, with an engineer call-out needed to make even the slightest alteration.
"We’re always letting and re-letting the floors,” continued Dave, "but now we can change logos and names ourselves. It’s very flexible, so we can basically do what we need to do. To me, that was the selling point – the fact that we could program it.”
The iS2 is the first lift display to combine RSS feed technology, wireless connectivity and eco-friendly features. The product’s screen brightness dimming, LED-backlit technology and scheduler for screen power management all reduce LCD power consumption, improving lifespan and satisfying the green rating required by elevator OEMs.
