NAYAR SYSTEMS AND CARLOS SILVA ADD THEIR KNOW-HOW TO INTEGRATE THE PLATFORMS AND UNIFIED THE REMOTE MANAGEMENT NETWORK OF ELEVATORS
Nayar Systems and Carlos Silva have joined their technological knowledge to offer users of net4machines Smart Control visibility of lifts already integrated in Carlos Silva’s M2CS telemanagement platform and access to M2CS without having to change the web application. In this way, Nayar Systems expands its remote elevator management network, incorporating those already integrated into our M2CS remote management network. Nayar Systems has established compatibility with its own technological solutions, thanks to the know-how transfer agreement of our
As a result of this integration, our clients will have an alternative way of reaching our M2CS platform, from a remote management platform such as net4machines Smart Control, not as specialized as M2CS, but broader and with more facilities to incorporate elevators controlled by different manufacturers..
In the words of Josep Corrons, CEO, Executive of Carlos Silva, he indicates: “With our control panels and our modular pre-installations, we have always wanted to facilitate the installation and maintenance of elevators. That was the only reason to create our M2CS telemanagement platform and all its tools. And we would not be consistent if we did not recognize in Nayar a collaborator with whom we share this same objective”.
The union of the technology companies Nayar Systems and Carlos Silva makes all the benefits of lift telemanagement available to each user, betting on extracting the maximum possible performance from all the information generated in an installation and guaranteeing its clients that they can have a IoT facilities park, with interconnected smart elevators.
In the words of Ricard Bou, Strategic Accounts & Projects Director of Nayar Systems: “In general, when a maneuver of any brand is connected to our platform, its maintainer receives alerts every time errors occur. If the connected elevator that presents the problem has a Carlos Silva maneuver, thanks to the platform integration work we have carried out, the elevator operator will be able to access the maneuver through our net4machines Smart Control platform, which facilitates safe access to the corresponding maneuver in M2CS. From now on, any net4machines Smart Control customer will be able to have an overview of their entire connected park, including the elevators integrated in Carlos Silva’s M2CS.”
Both Nayar Systems and Carlos Silva will have products marketed by both companies to provide their respective clients with everything they need for integrated remote management of their elevators under maintenance

VISIT OF THE EUROPEAN ELEVATORS GROUP G.A.E.
Carlos Silva had a very special visit, the Grupo Ascensoristas Europeo G.A.E, a group of small and medium-sized companies in the elevator sector. The group has 20,000 installations under maintenance and 1,500 new-build and refurbishment installations per year. The G.A.E group works with the largest construction and engineering companies installing the full range of elevators, escalators and other vertical and horizontal transport installations.
The day began with the presentation of the Gesil SL group by Sandra Silva, director of the group, and a presentation of Carlos Silva SAU by Josep Corrons, director of the company, outlining values, objectives and indicative figures.
Next, we had the technical presentation of our HIDRA Crono and KDT Evo product families by Miguel Castillo, technical director, emphasizing key aspects and strong points regarding the installation and maintenance of said products.
To conclude the products part, we presented our M2CS elevator remote management tool by Xavier Soret, technical manager of the M2CS platform. This remote management platform covers all the expected aspects of remote management and is focused on the casuistic analysis of operating information to facilitate preventive and predictive maintenance.
After the presentation part, we made a visit to our facilities showing live all our engineering and production processes, all our automated management, from the reception of the order to its packaging and dispatch, focusing on the control processes and verification of compliance with customer specifications.
The visit has ended by offering a catering in our Hall, where we ended the day enjoying a pleasant talk.
It was a pleasure having you with us, we hope to see you again very soon!

At Carlos Silva SAU we have always been committed to providing the sector with technologically advanced solutions that simplify installation and maintenance processes, and this is another step forward in that strategy.
NOTE ON ARM MODULE FIRMWARE UPDATE
ARM module firmware updates are related to connectivity options with Vodafone or other roaming operators and, as users, you are unlikely to see any changes except in the form of improved performance. In no case do these updates affect the elevator information or how this information is displayed on M2CS.
The update process takes place at the time of validation of the module and will take a few minutes, during which you cannot disconnect the ARM module and should ensure the maximum possible coverage, taking into account the NOTE ON CONNECTIVITY.
Some M2CS enhancements may require firmware upgrades to ARM modules already installed. If this happens, M2CS will tell you if any ARM module needs to be updated and to update it to the latest firmware version available, simply re-validate the ARM module and follow the M2CS instructions.
To force a new validation:
1) Enter ARM Module Management.
2) From the LIFTS tab, delete the maintenance identifier; save; re-enter the maintenance identifier; and save again.
3) Go to Elevator Maintenance and validate the ARM modules pending validation.
CONNECTIVITY NOTE FOR USERS OF ARM MODULES
We have received several reports of ARM-M2CS connectivity problems and in most of them, we observed the ARM module installed inside metal cabinets and frames. This practice prevents theft of the module, but very negatively affects its emitted RF signal.
We strongly urge you to follow the instructions in our installation guide about moving the module a minimum of 1m away from metal surfaces, power cables and other interfering equipment, and this includes inside metal cabinets. Note that under very favorable coverage conditions, the module may be able to operate attached to or even inside a metal cabinet, but more often than not, under these conditions, it will not have good connectivity. Therefore, it is not enough for the SIGNAL LED to be AMBER or GREEN, the module must also meet the above distance conditions.
We remind you that if the supplied 5 meter cable is not enough, we can supply a longer cable. And if you do not get good coverage, you can also use an Ethernet connection if available.
NOTE: The indication on the SIGNAL LED of the ARM module is only indicative and measures the signal received by the module emitted from the communications tower of the telephone operator. This indication is only valid if the module is located in free space, since we assume that if sufficient signal is received from the tower, the tower will also receive sufficient signal from the module. But if you place the module near metallic surfaces or even inside metallic cabinets, it is possible that the module receives enough signal, but it is very likely that the metallic structure prevents the signal emitted by the module from reaching the antenna of the communication tower, making communication impossible. In addition, the lower the signal level, the greater the effect of atmospheric conditions.

Training in Carlos Silva, S.A.
Since the beginning of the year CARLOS SILVA S.A. teaches training courses for the new EVO controller. This controller is specially designed for the management of platforms for people with reduced mobility and home lift.
From firmware version 5.0 of Hidra Crono controller and firmware versión 1.0 of KDT-EVO controller, an optional PLC (Programmable logic controller) feature allows for the implementation of special functions in a fast and easy way.
Twitter in our elevators
From now on, HIDRA Crono and KDT Evo installations, using the M2CS telemetry, may offer to their customers the possibility to make their lifts interact with Twitter social media.
This functionality of the CARLOS SILVA’s controllers, will allow his twitter followers to learn curious facts about the elevators that until now nobody had asked.
This will change the perception users have about elevators, from being unknown to became a device with a technological advanced artificial intelligence.
We encourage you to follow @halllift01, in Twitter, interact with it, and help us improve its AI…
Online access to frequency inverter parameters
With our future version 9 of HIDRA Crono firmware, our customers will be able to read and write drive parameters using our web-based telemetry platform, M2CS.
This new functionality will considerably ease the maintenance of elevators, since all the adjustment can be done remotely by qualified personnel without the need of displacements.
In addition, it will allow to create a backup of the drive parameters, and save them remotely, either in the cloud or PC. This will enhance a quick restore to a new drive in the event of a possible future replacement.
