A) – Control unit
B) – Elevator car bottom sensors (P= Pression / T= Traction)

To avoid all malfunctioning of the device, even after possible overload events (i.e. parachute test) we advice to insert a fix block to protect the load sensors.

Thresholds values are automatically set (editable from < Thresholds > menu):
Threshold 1 = 100% Capacity; contact N/O – Threshold 2 = 115% Capacity; contact N/O

Travelling cables compensation


In lifts with significant cables’ overall weight, the compensation of travelling cables’ weight is an important step. One has to account for: 1) Lift max load, 2) travelling cables’ weight per meter, 3) Shaft total length.

Before performing this procedure, in addition to the main connections, [AUT.KIT08] external position sensor must be connected. If you already have DEUM15 encoder you need only connect LLEC6 control unit without using the external sensor, using the serial line for cables’compensation.

Position sensor wiring

DEUM encoder wiring

DEUM15 encoder programming requires a serial position indicator.

Compensation procedure

First, perform the system calibration

1--->[▼]--->< Setting >
2--->[OK]--->< Calibration >
3--->[▼]--->< Compensation >
4--->[OK]--->< Bottom floor, are you sure ? >
5---------> Cabin at the lowest floor
6--->[OK]---> Wait until countdown stops
7--->[OK]--->< Top floor, are you sure ? >
8---------> Cabin at the highest floor
9--->[OK]---> Wait until countdown stops

Cables weight is automatically set (editable from < Configuration > / < Compensation > menu). Set the value to 0 kg to disable the function.

Advanced programming

Programming tool

A) – Browse options at current level.

B) – Access to menu and confirm selection.

C) – Exit from current level and return to previous level.

The programming tool can also be separated from the control unit and connected by telephone cable. (ex.: back of the pushbutton panel)


The device is switched off (LED 1 OFF).Power up the device.
The device doesn't work (LED 2 does NOT flashing).Power cycle the device.
Thresholds exceeded and active (LED 3/4 ON).Reduce the car load to reset thresholds.

While replacing a LLEC2/3, the existing 120 Ω sensors can be maintained only by powering the LLEC6’s 12V control unit via the EWS.AL212 external power supply.
