Function & OptionDestination Control SystemFLOORNAVI

In buildings, elevators are important means of transportation.
For elevators passengers, length of waiting time and service time on the elevator is an essential parameter for building service.
The Destination Control System "FLOORNAVI" is a group control system that makes it possible to provide more optimum elevator operation by recognizing passenger's destination beforehand.
The situation of the flow of people in the building is comprehensively optimized in order to provide efficient travel.

1.The group control system offers the best operating schedule based on destination information entered.

BEFORE : applying the Destination Control System FLOORNAVI

Regardless of their destinations, all passengers get on the first arriving car, which results that the number of stops increases, and service time will be extended.

AFTER : applying the Destination Control System FLOORNAVI

The most suitable operating schedule is calculated by advanced calculation algorithm based on registered destination floor.

2.The optimum elevator operating system provides a stress-free environment for all elevator passengers.

Large reductions in peak hour queuing

By reducing service time drastically, Destination Control System relieves passengers stress from rush-hour congestion in the morning and evening.

Shorter traveling time

By registering the destination floor before the elevator ride, the number of floor stops is reduced because the person who wants to move to the same floor can be collected at the same elevator. Therefore, the ride time is shortened as a result.

Not required to press the floor button inside the car

Once passengers get inside the elevator, they are no longer required to enter the destination floor. It removes the burden of the destination entry inside a packed elevator and thus improving passenger experience.

Result of Handling Capacity

Average Service Time (Service time = Waiting time + Traveling time)

Conventional Group Control System and Destination Control System are compared as shown below: Simulation has been conducted according to follows conditions. Based on the result, Destination Control System performance has exceeded conventional group control system in terms of average service time and also handling capacity. The effect is more pronounce particularly during up-peak hour. Measurement Conditions:
6 Elevators, 15 stops, rated speed 150 m/min, Car capacity 24person.
Waiting time for conventional system is shorter than Destination Control System. However, for the case of traveling time,
Destination Control system shows better performance compared to conventional type. Overall, Destination Control System shows better service time in total compare to conventional system.

3.Device Description of FLOORNAVI

Enter your destination floor using the "Hall Destination Controller". Check the elevator car number displayed on the screen.

※HDI:Special specifications adopted.

1HDC : Hall Destination Controller

Note 1:HDC has two types of installation methods: "hung on the wall type" and "embedding to the wall type".
Note 2: The touch panel HDC2-T series has two display methods on the destination floor registration screen: the "10-key method" and the "Direct input method".

2HDI : Hall Destination Indicator

Note: A white light or orange light can also be selected for the indicator LED Dot Matrix display.

3HDI : Hall Car Indicator

Note: Works by others

4CDI : Car Destination Indicator

Note: A white light or orange light can also be selected for the indicator LED Dot Matrix display.

4.FULL DCS type and a HYBRID DCS type of DCS(s)


HDC is installed in all the floors, and an elevator calls, and it performs all registration of a destination floor by HDC. Since a destination floor is automatically registered at the time of an elevator response, a destination floor button is not installed in a cage.


By only the floor of a specific floor (a standard floor, a dining-floor, or the specified floor) installing HDC, the other floor installs the usual hall button, and an elevator calls it only on a specific floor, and it performs registration of a destination floor, etc. by HDC. In the other floor, an elevator is called with the hall button like the usual elevator, and a destination floor is registered with the destination floor button in a cage.

※Note : In the case of HYBRID DCS type, the floor button of the registered destination floor lights up like the conventional elevator.

5. Security System Linkage Function

A security system linkage function is making it not receive operation of hall destination controller (following "HDC"), and receiving only operation of a card reader (Image of Pattern 1) or a flapper gate (Image of Pattern 2) by operating the switch installed in the supervisory panel etc., and raises the security in a building.

Applicable device of HDC

・Put your card on the card reader, and card reader will activate.
・Card reader is worked by others

Linkage flapper gate system

Note 1: When using HDC of TOSHIBA arrange, the pattern 1 is adopted, and the pattern 2 is adopted when using HDC of customer arrange.
Note 2: These device is customer arrange, and the elevator system side controls by receiving the signal input from each device.
