This paper deals with an electromagnetic linear guiding for a vertical transportation vehicle such as an elevator. An omega shape actuator [3] (Fig. 1) with permanent magnets and coils on its lateral arms is used to create attracting forces in three directions. Four of these actuators mounted on top and floor of the cabin enable a degree of freedom (DOF… CONTINUE READING
