What the project consist of: The project consist of building, team communication skill, leadership skill. Learning how mechanical elevator operates and function. Learning how to program the PLC system. Learn how to work with relays.
What an elevator does? The function of the elevator lift is to be able to lift object between floor and delivering loads to different area of a building.
Workings of the elevator lift We got our elevator working with a simple setup. Using a pulley system we raised and lower the lift with counter weight. We used a simple 9v dc motor to make the pulley system function. Then we used two 120-240 VAC relays to make the pulley raise and lower the lift. We used 1 PLC control system. 1 pair of magnets for a counter weight.
