An energy-saving device that enables escalators to run 30% more efficiently can be fitted to existing escalators. The Ecolator is available from Pickerings Lifts and will also prolong the life of the escalator by reducing wear and tear. It can be fitted overnight, so there is no disruption to business.

Ecolator is a smart motor controller that optimises the voltage according to the load the escalator is carrying. This intelligent smart motor controller reduces motor temperature and provides soft starting. Ecolator can also give information on operation hours and electricity consumption.
