Inline Gear Chain Drive Elevators

The inline gear system is an improvement on the basic chain drive concept which places the motor assembly at the top of the shaft – instead of on top of the cab like a standard chain drive. This allows for less headroom on the shaft, reducing construction costs, and also provides faster access to emergency controls outside the car, increasing safety. Inline gear systems are also somewhat more energy-efficient than standard chain drives.
