Elevator maintenance programs ensure elevators are able to meet local and national codes and minimize the risk of unscheduled downtime.Regardless of code, the mechanical nature of elevators, combined with their frequent use, make the relationship between building owners and elevator contractors an important one. Renown works with elevator contractors to complement the services required to maintain and restore elevator machines— keeping elevators running. Everything from elevator motors, drives, gearboxes, generators, sheaves, complete new units and maintenance parts are repaired in-house or replacements are available in stock for fast reliable service. Exchange units and obsolete units are all part of a regular day at Renown. In-house machining and coil winding allows us to help contractors return units to service 24/7. Below you’ll find some of our services offered.

An Introduction to Wind Energy
Clean wind energy, one of the world’s fastest growing sources of new electricity, is seeing major gains in Canada; in 2016 alone, 702 megawatts (MW) of new capacity was added across the country. Ontario, in particular, is leading the way, having completed 79 new installations comprised of 2,302 wind turbines. Below, we’ll take look at […]
Modernizing DC Gearless Elevator Motors Can Reduce Operation Expenses by 50%
In the majority of buildings constructed prior to 2000, elevators are operated by DC gearless motors. When problems arise, the first step is typically to replace the motor, but this can be a costly, complex procedure — and is usually unnecessary. Even after several decades of use, DC-powered elevator motors can still provide optimal service […]
How to Avoid Motor Shaft Voltage & Bearing Current Damage
In recent years, variable frequency drives (VFDs) — motor controllers that drive electric motors by varying the supplied frequency and voltage — have become more and more popular thanks to their superior performance, high potential energy savings, and low operating costs. Despite these benefits, however, VFDs can also cause significant motor bearing damage in just […]
