Here at DAC, we’re committed to using the best products on the market. So when it comes to shaft positioning, they don’t come much better than the Kübler Absolute Shaft Positioning System. 

The contactless absolute measurement system uses sensors to detect the position of the elevator car 100% slip-free. But don’t just take our word for it. Here are the top 6 reasons why we think that the Kübler System is right for you.

  1. Travel height of up to 392m with speeds up to 8m/s
    While it might seem obvious, the height and speed of your lift is an important consideration when considering your elevator shaft positioning system. With many solutions on the market only reaching up to 100m, there are few reliable systems out there that can go the distance, except for the Kübler Absolute Shaft Positioning.
  1. Precise positioning and 100% slip-free
    Loss of absolute positioning is now a thing of the past. The sensor is mounted directly onto the elevator car and is unimpacted by slippage of the cable. As a result, with the Kübler, elevator cars can be determined to be 100% slip-free.

  2. Compact design suitable for the tightest of installation spaces
    The compact design of the Kübler Shaft Positioning System is ideal for the smallest of installation spaces. The sensors can be mounted on, next to or under the cabin, providing flexibility to adapt to the environment.

  1. Reliable and durable design
    Built from robust stainless steel and mounted directly onto the guide rails using the mounting set, the Kübler is shock, vibration and temperature resistant. With the ability to operate at temperatures between -5°C and +70°C, the Kübler Absolute Positioning System is the perfect solution for elevators exposed to varying temperatures.

    Additionally, the systems will not be affected by magnetic influencers during mounting, so rejoice engineers, you can use your magnetised screwdrivers once more!

  2. Save time with easy installation
    Much like the rest of the DAC range, the Kübler provides engineers with the ease and convenience of plug and play system. Using carabiners, the stainless steel band can easily be mounted to the respective mounting set, while in the shaft pit, the belt is pre-tensioned by a spring.

    But that’s not all. With installation instructions included on packaging and printed directly onto the sensor itself, there’s no need to lose time flicking through complex user manuals or PDF files.

  3. Lower installation and maintenance costs
    As well as precision and accuracy, the Kübler also offers customers the benefit of quicker installation and eliminates the need for additional sensors in the shaft, saving you time and money. Additionally, the robust design provides a longer service life than many competitor products on the market, helping you to reduce your maintenance costs ongoing.
