I've been reading various sources about elevator selection, and I am a little confused about the common terminology.
Are "gearless traction elevators" the same as "machine-room-less elevators" ?
and "geared traction elevators" the same as conventional "machine-room elevators"?
Seems like machine-room-less elevators becomes more efficient above 30 stories (however, conventional "machine-room elevators" can still carry larger capacities). Hence, it makes selection between the two little difficult. I guess if it's a passenger elevator, mrl is the right choice for above 30 stories.
