Sigma Di (Di stands for Distributed Inverter) is a mid to high-rise elevator model of Sigma Elevator Company which was made from 1999 until around the early 2010s.

Overview

Di is a geared and gearless traction elevator primarily for mid to high-rise buildings, although sometimes it can also be used for low-rise buildings. This model is divided into four series; Di1 for low to mid-rise buildings, Di2 for mid-rise, Ds4 and Di5 for high-rise. Di1 and Di2 uses geared machines while both Ds4 and Di5 uses gearless machines.

Di elevators features a microprocessor which distributes microprocessors to the controller, elevator car-top and operating fixtures using Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT). Di2, Ds4 and Di5 elevators are usually distinguished by their slightly long button beep sound when the buttons are pressed.

History

Di was first launched in 1999 by LG Elevators, at the time when Otis started acquiring LG's elevator division to become LG-OTIS. It was produced during the LG-OTIS era. Later when the Sigma brand was launched in 2001 and LG-OTIS became Otis Elevator Korea in 2004, the model was continued by Otis Korea until around the early 2010s. For areas outside South Korea, they are exported under the SIGMA name. It was discontinued and succeeded by the new Iris NV (for low to mid-rise) and Iris 3 (for high-rise) MMR traction models.
