KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, is introducing its newest product the DX Class Elevator. Everything is connected in a growing new digital era, the KONE DX Class Elevators redefine the elevator experience with built-in connectivity for improved people flow, supporting the formation of an experience that connects on all levels.
In line with recreating Malaysia as a sustainable city through enhanced eco-efficiency, performance, and aesthetics, KONE DX Class Elevators have built-in connectivity as standard. KONE DX Class Elevators revolutionizes the role of elevators in future smart buildings: the elevator is no longer merely a way to travel between floors, but an integral and integrated platform that offers intuitive, ambient and connected experiences that extend from the parking entrance and throughout the building.
“The flexibility to adjust and update elevator experiences based on needs today and in the future is a fundamental benefit for KONE customers. KONE 24/7 Connected Services uses data gathered from cloud to provide predictive maintenance, allowing problems to be discovered and resolved efficiently before they cause a breakdown or service disruption,” says Edward Loy, Managing Director, KONE Malaysia. Launching the world’s first digitally-connected elevators that enable customizable services, not only do they bring convenience to customers and users, KONE DX Class Elevators also make buildings well-equipped with futureproof solutions supporting a green, liveable and sustainable city for future generations to live in.
The new KONE DX Class Elevator enables customers to tailor and plug in additional software and services for elevators throughout the entire lifetime of a building. By using open application programming interfaces (APIs), KONE’s approach makes it easy to manage and integrate different devices, apps and services with new and existing systems. For elevator passengers this brings a host of new, multisensory experiences inside the elevator, combining physical hardware and digital services. These can be customised according to individual needs and preferences, bringing new levels of ease and convenience.
Every KONE DX Class Elevator provides:
- The option for customers to activate digital services easily and remotely when they need to.
- Secure APIs for third-party solutions, which create new and exciting services. KONE is also announcing its partnership with several companies, such as Gaussian Robotics; Habitap; G Element; and more, to bring new levels of sophistication to the people flow experience.
- A whole new variety of design options and innovations. The design of KONE DX Class elevators have won four awards in the renowned Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020 competition. The KONE DX Class elevator interior collection and the KONE DX Class digital experience elevator concept was awarded for their outstanding design features, innovativeness and smart elements.
Combining new products and services over the life of a building can be highly effective, and the KONE DX Class Elevator makes elevator rides more enjoyable and sustainable, Edward further elaborated. The new KONE DX Class Elevator series is ideal for customers looking to modernize existing equipment with enhanced eco-efficiency, performance, and aesthetics. The KONE DX Class Elevator will replace the current KONE elevator range.
