Traction  ELEVATOR

                        Traction elevators are lifted by ropes, which pass over a sheave attached to an electric motor above the elevator shaft. They are used for mid and high-rise applications and have much higher travel speeds than hydraulic elevators. A counter weight makes the elevators more efficient. Traction elevators have 3 main types as follows

1. Geared Traction Elevators  

2. Gear-less Traction Elevators 

3. Machine-Room-Less Elevators
