The Schumacher Elevator SS5–PLC hydraulic elevator control system is specifically designed to meet the demands of the hydraulic elevator industry.

The SS5–PLC control is capable of handling single and multi–car group operation. The Programmable Logic Control (PLC) has proven to be dependable in many industrial control environments and applications. All safety functions are backed up by “self–guided” relays to provide additional protection and redundancy checking. All input and output functions of the PLC can be monitored and diagnosed using the LED indications. An optional human interface diagnostic tool is available for additional field troubleshooting and service. PLC parts can be purchased from a third–party vendor.
