Lift Destination Control System PORT from Schindler Lifts Australia
PORT - Personal Occupant Requirement Terminal
33 dedicated Schindler staff at the New Technologies Group in Switzerland has spent 24 years developing and evolving this technology to enable us to release PORT, our third generation destination control system.
PORT technology is a strategic Schindler systems architecture that acts as a total transit management solution for a building or
campus. Encompassing the features of Miconic 10 and Schindler ID, PORT Technology represents the third generation of destination
control technology. At its base, the system consists of a series of processors that perform the transit management operation by
instructing various pieces of installed equipment such as lifts, barriers or door locks to behave in a way consistent with achieving
improved traffic flow. The systems human interface operates in a variety of ways but as a minimum does so through a device known
as the Personal Occupant Requirement Terminal or PORT.
A fully integrated component of PORT that can be added to virtually any
barrier design. Two PORTs per barrier provide an aesthetically pleasing and
efficient two-way card reader and instruction screen combination.

Energy Control Option (ECO)
ECO will set non essential elevators into standby mode. This reduces
the number of elevator trips and due to the improved balance of the
elevators, should save energy for the trips undertaken. When feasible, the
elevators on standby are set to an energy saving sleep mode.
