1950s to 1970s
In the 1950s, Haushahn introduces black buttons without illuminating lamp. The hall station had a round red lamp above the call button.
In the 1960s, the fixtures were round plastic buttons with lamp.
These fixtures have round plastic buttons which will lights up when pressed. Some elevators have the generic "Schaefer" buttons.
1980s to 1990s
Haushahn introduced modular style fixtures in the early 1980s. These fixtures were very common until in the late 1990s. First with the buttons used in 1970s and later with Schaefer's MT 28 buttons. The Module fixtures were available in black and grey colored faceplates. Floor indicators were mostly LED dot-matrix but some elevators had LCD display floor indicators.
Some Haushahn elevators in Germany and overseas also used Schaefer's MT 28 RLR round buttons with an engraved lettering and illuminating halo. For the floor indicators, they usually used Schaefer's two or three digit LED dot matrix display.
2000s to present
Some older Haushahn elevators made after the company was sold to Schindler use Schindler's FI MXB. It is unknown if the vandal resistant variant, FI MXV, was also used by Haushahn.
These are basically the same as the one used in the Schindler 3100, 3300, 6200 and 6300 elevators. Haushahn's version of FIGS is used on the Haushahn lifeLine, lifeLine MOD, lifeEdition and flexLine MOD elevators. There is also another version of FIGS with a black glass display and uses either the standard LED dot matrix or a TFT LCD display - this version is only used in lifeLine, lifeLine MOD and flexLine MOD models.
To be added.
Haushahn still use Schaefer fixtures on some of their elevators even after the acquisition, but not as often as it used to be back in the 1980s and 1990s.
