This paper describes the design of an electromagnetic elevator guiding system. One challenge of this design is the overdetermination of the mechanical system due to its high number of adjustment variables. Force decoupling, transformation from local to global quantities, and simulation results of the entire system are presented. In contrast to former works, a new elevator test bench for the evaluation of the simulation results is introduced. Measurement results validate the design process of both the electromagnetic actuators and feedback control.
