WE1 lift control system

In the past, lift manufacturers had to either opt for a controller with conventional wiring or with a bus control. The Weber WE1 lift controller now makes this decision easy for you! It can serve to realize both concepts and the system caters to every lift engineering generation. The result is a modern, uncomplicated and modular control system with a high standardization level and outstanding price-benefit ratio.

The highlight: CANopenLIFT AND conventional

Open to everything: The WE1 has a communication platform for CANopenLift components that caters to all manufacturers.


Energy-efficiency saves the user money and also protects the climate. Under the label of EnergyIQ, our engineers have trimmed the WE1 to low power consumption right from the start.
