Elevate Version History


Fix problem with results not reflecting advanced results filter options
Extend expiry dates for time-limited versions.
Updates to external dispatcher interface related to conventional control


Add worst time to destination to graphs and batch spreadsheet output.
Reinstate and extend the command line option.


Minor debugging external dispatcher door operation.
Correct auto area calculation for 6000 lb elevator.
Correct external dispatcher door beams messages for double deck lifts.
Fix memory overrun for massive queue lengths.
Improve ETA operation when being used as a shuttle so that home floors can be top floor.
Allow intermediate floors when double deck lifts are used with heavy uppeak mode as shuttle lift.


Resolve a problem for external dispatchers with the doors re-opening when a call is placed while the elevator is already at landing.


Resolve a problem with ETA algorithm crashing Elevate.
Add messages for external dispatchers to identify learning runs.
Resolve a dynamic kinematics problem which occasionally reported incorrect quickest stop floor.


Extend to 1 December 2023 the expiry of TK Elevator algorithms for those with access to this feature.
Includes a preview of the new Elevate Dispatch algorithm. This is an Alpha Test version only of the dispatcher and should not be used for design at this stage. Please continue to use the Standard algorithms. Currently, Elevate Dispatch features include destination control for single and double-deck elevators, and a combination of single and double deck together in a single group.


Fix crash with ETA algorithm


Improve installation program addressing all known issues with Elevate 9 installer.
Add dynamic profiles to Tools, Kinematics - allows modelling of trips where elevators change speed during the trip.
Extensive additions to external dispatcher options, supporting third party use of this feature.
Extend expiry dates for customers using unlocking and upgrade codes.


Fix bug which sometimes caused Elevate to crash when using the Destination Control (ACA) dispatcher.


Restore consistency of results with Elevate 8.
Fix some issues causing Elevate to crash for systems using destination control.
Fix some issues with the new Elevate 9 installer.
Enable External Dispatcher option, including example random dispatcher illustrating mix of lift types in the same group, and new Elevate 9 faclity to run an external dispatcher with Elevate.


First release of Elevate 9. Commencement of release of new features starting with:

- auto-selection of speed, acceleration, and jerk according to CIBSE Guide D 2020.
- new ISO 8100-32:2020 template to support design to this standard
- new PCA templates to support design to Property Council of Australia guidelines (2019)

Note in some instances the results of Elevate 9 will be very marginally better than the results of Elevate 8. They could also be worse, but only when the enhancement is lost in statistical noise due to insufficient sample size (which can be addressed by increasing the number of simulations run in Analysis Data). The improvement is due to an increased efficiency within the software; a destination call is more consistently placed, allocated and the allocation returned to that passenger within a single time slice.

New installer removing dependency on .Net Framework 3.5.

Extension of expiry for company license versions.

This download also includes Elevate Version 8.28. This version is the same as 8.27 except that it extends the expiry for company licenses.


Minor bug fixes and extension of expiry for company license versions.


Improvements to the TWIN up peak algorithm (effects ThyssenKrupp versions only).
Update to Lerch Bates unlocking codes option (effects Lerch Bates versions only).


Improvements to double-deck destination control algorithm
Add arrangement, Double Deck with odd to even floor inter-floor traffic
Add queue lengths by lift - access these from the Graphs data button
Spreadsheet output now provides spatial plot data according to the selected run
Fix report pagination issues for dispatching algorithms where the user selects which floor destination control input stations are provided
Extend unloading code expiry dates for ThyssenKrupp and company versions
Add average maximum queue length to batch output
Update Thyssenkrupp logo for thyseenkrupp version
Add new version including features as specified by ThyssenKrupp.


Add exclusive group to option for Destination Control(ACA)
Add passenger batching option (beta)
Extend unloading code expiry dates for ThyssenKrupp and company versions
For Peters Research version, add AWT output for each run in spreadsheet output
Fix bug where Elevate did not complete a double-deck destination simulation. Where not all floor served, in some instances upper car doors started closing immediately after they opened.
Update thyssenkrupp logo for thyseenkrupp version


Add support for latest Elevate Perform accelerometer. Extend thyssenkrupp features expiry.


Address some rounding errors which occasionally affected how Elevate identified the express zone in round trip time calculations. Add data check: double deck general analysis needs to have even number of express floors.
