Optidrive Elevator

Dedicated drive for geared and gearless lift applications

Dedicated drive for geared and gearless lift applicationsOptidrive Elevator is the 2nd generation dedicated elevator drive from Invertek Drives, designed to provide smooth, reliable carriage control in all elevator applications.

The compact external dimensions simplify installation, whilst optional incremental/EnDat encoder feedback interfaces allow compatibility with a wide range of motors.

Invertek's renowned motor control capability ensures maximum ride comfort under all conditions, with five independent S-ramps and dedicated motor holding brake control algorithm allowing fine tuning of the system.

Optidrive Elevator also incorporates Safe Torque Off* as standard, and a range of features including Rescue Mode.

Modbus RTU and CANopen on board as standard interface.Profibus, Profinet, DeviceNet, Ethernet/IP, EtherCat, Modbus TCP- optional.



  • Control of IM and PM motors in a single product, geared or gearless systems;
  • Open loop or Closed loop vector (with incremental encoder) control of standard IM motors;
  • Open loop or Closed loop (with Incremental/EnDat encoder) control of PM motors.

Comfortable Ride
