Introduced in 1993, the SWIFT Futura was quickly established as a superior and trouble-free elevator control system. Today, the SWIFT Futura remains a corner-stone in the elevator controller market. Our goal, from the very beginning, was to design a reliable product that would be easy to install and maintain, would provide greatly enhanced performance, and could be easily serviced by regular service technicians. It also needed to be a non-proprietary system, so that building owners would have the freedom to choose their own service provider. Simply put, we've accomplished just that.
The SWIFT Futura now houses and easy-to-use touch screen to control, monitor and diagnose connected elevators. This touch-screen removes the need for an external tool or laptop to connect to the controller. Monitor groups, view faults and diagnostics, change parameters and more all with a simple tap on the screen. Setting up, adjusting and serving elevator controllers just got easier.
The SWIFT Futura uses high performance microprocessor technology, insuring a high level of reliability, superb leveling accuracy, repeatable performance, and easy installation and upgrading. The all-digital aspect makes available a host of features that, among other things, includes flash memory technology. Making it simple to upload system enhancement software or upgrades, with minimum inconvenience, from anywhere using a PC or network connection. Expert dispatching technology means that your system will automatically adapt to meet changing conditions.
Your system becomes "intelligent" because advanced dispatching is based on what is happening right now.
In addition, group functions are integral to each individual car controller. This provides a totally redundant dispatch system. The redundant group functions allow your system to perform more intelligently by making its own choices. Now each car communicates with the group to make dispatching decisions.
The SWIFT Futura also utilizes standarized wiring. A key benefit that greatly decreases installation time and virtually eliminates wiring mistakes. Our SWIFT-Link interfaces all the top of car processors, car opening panel processors, and hall fixture processors in a network of distributed processing, for easier service. It does so through the use of simple, telephone-like connectors.
With the SWIFT Futura, value is immediately realized, because installation is quicker, maintenance is much simpler, and downtimes are minimized. The SWIFT Futura's trouble-free performance means that building traffic will move efficiently and effortlessly providing tenants and visitors with a more enjoyable commuting experience. Increased system ride performance is made possible by the SWIFT Futura's advanced, all-digital, ride control technology. The SWIFT Futura, by its very design, gives you reliability, simplicity and flexibility.
