5.1.2 All elevators by Kone MonoSpace use the Kone EcoDisc, an axial synchronous engine on permanent magnets (that works at an adjustable frequency and without a reducer) without an engine room, which is considerable dematerialisation, in addition to the notable reduction in the space occupied. Also, the elevators are equipped with highly efficient LED lights, along with alternative energy sources consisting of photovoltaics and halogen-free cables. Example 5.1.2 Kone MonoSpace elevator
