This is a list of Innovation elevator fixtures.

Universal Series

The Universal fixtures can be circle or square. They illuminated in yellow, amber, white, light blue, dark blue, and cyan. Universal fixtures have bar type buttons (either PB10 or PB56 series, depends on the measurements). It is unknown when the Universal Series was first made, but it did exist in 1984. They where used in late 1990's Montgomery KONE elevators, as a replacement of the non-ADA compliant Montgomery A Series Fixtures.

Decorator Series

Innovation Decorator is just like Innovation Universal but it has a square wrap around the braille. Decorator was introduced in the 1980s.

Security Series

These fixtures are vandal-resistant type and has a red lamp on the center of the buttons. They come in either square or circle. These fixtures were introduced in the late 1980s, and were used on newer Montgomery and KONE elevators in the 1990s onward, referring them as their "Vandal Resistant" fixtures [1], before KSS 140 came out.

Bruiser Series

Bruiser buttons have a red lamp on the center of the buttons. They come in white or black versions. Bruiser comes in circle and in square. These are more commonly used in modernization projects. These fixtures were first made in 1999, and originally did not use a color filter. The Bruiser Halo Series was first introduced in 2020 with the PB-72 and PB-73 buttons and is a part of the Bruiser Series.

NEMA 4X Series

These look similar to Innovation Bruiser fixtures, but the slanted part of the button is a metal ring around the button, not part of the button. These fixtures were first made no later than 2009, and were most likely made to compete with CJ Anderson's VX buttons.

Premier Series

These fixtures are the same size as Innovation Universal, but only light-up in an outside halo. They comes in either square or circle. These buttons come with all of Innovation's braille plates. Innovation Premier looks very similar to Innovation Prestige. These fixtures were first made in 1998-2000.

Prestige Series

These are metal buttons with a halo that lights up. Prestige looks very similar to Innovation Premier. These fixtures were first made no later than 2002. There is also a California Code compliant version that comes with a small lamp in the middle - this is known as PB-61.

Pinnacle Series

These are white illuminating buttons with a metal halo. These fixtures were first made in 2012, although there are some Montgomery and MontgomeryKONE elevators from the 1990's that use Innovation buttons that look very similar to the Pinnacle. Also, Innovation Pinnacle should not be confused with Monitor Controls Pinnacle, which are hexagonal, layered art-deco fixtures.

Park Avenue Series

These are home elevator fixtures. They can use different Innovation fixtures. These fixtures were first made in 2004-2006. In 2012, Innovation dropped the Park avenue name. Now, these fixtures have no name.

I-Line Series

I-Line is Innovation's surface mount series. It can use any Innovation button. It is unknown when I-Line was first made, but was most likely created in 1990 due to the newly established Americans with Disabilities Act.
