Vertical transportation equipment is a significant capital investment for any owner. Major overhauls and replacements are costly and have a serious impact on airport operations. An effective preventive maintenance program helps to protect the investments and to maximize the safe, useful life of each piece of equipment.

VTX’s special tool, Parametricoder™, helps airport operators protect that investment. The Parametricoder gathers precisely measured parameters of speed, vibrations, accelerations, and decelerations to provide excellent technical data that reflects both the mechanical systems used and the electrical systems controlling them. Armed with this data, an effective preventive maintenance program can be written to maximize the safe, useful life of each piece of equipment.
