  • BLQ - square button, with illuminating tactile and halo (also comes with dual illumination), there is also a flush mounted version
  • BLX - similar to BLQ but comes with both non-illuminating tactile and braille (hence this button does not come with dual illumination option)
  • Unknown series - round button with pillowed square frame around the button, might have been discontinued

BX Equinox

These fixtures consist of oval shaped buttons, with a halo that lights up. The button might be on only one side of the oval, but this is unconfirmed. This button is also available with dual illumination. These fixtures are not sold in North America.

The button can be made out of plastic, stainless steel, or PVD (brass like coating). These fixtures are not sold in North America, but have been seen imported on ThyssenKrupp LEV elevators (pillowed square frame, plastic buttons).

BR Dardo

These buttons look very similar to the push buttons used by Schindler on their FI GS, Linea 100 and Linea 300 fixtures. These buttons can be flushed or surface mounted, and can have dual illumination which would illuminate in a similar fashion as Schindler's Linea 100 and 300 push buttons. These fixtures are not currently sold in North America, but will possibly be sold there in the future, which would probably to be branded as MAD BL Series.


B5Q[1] is one of DMG's older button series which have been discontinued. These buttons are made of clean plastic which lights up entirely when pressed (if the buttons have illumination). They were also possible to be mounted on DMG's older Caprice button panels[2]. DMG's B5Q buttons were also used in some Koppel A.W. elevators[3].
