linear elevator リニア・エレベーター
社会・生活 / ハイテクノロジー
An elevator that moves its cars by using a linear motor to raise and lower balance weights. It does not require a hoist mechanism or hydraulic device like traditional elevators, reducing the amount of required space as well as offering lower energy consumption, faster movement, a more comfortable ride, and more accurate stops between car and floor doors. Can be found in places such as the Tokugawa Building.
