For fixtures found in North America, Please refer to List of Kone elevator fixtures (North America).


This is a list of Kone elevator fixtures found in almost every countries around the world, excluding the United States and Canada. Note that Kone had some other fixtures design before 1930s, which haven't been listed on this page.

Before 1930's

KONE used to have brown containers with small white plastic buttons.

1930s to 1950s

Kone used the same fixtures from the early 1930s to early 1960. They have small black plastic buttons in the flush mounted metal panel. Alarm buttons are usually white and stop buttons are red. Gated elevators often have only foor buttons. The freight elevator version has bigger yellow buttons in the black surface mounted panel. Floor indicators are mechanical and usually missing. These fixtures are mostly found in Finland and rarely in Sweden.

1960s

Black rectangular buttons

These are simple black rectangular buttons without illumination. The hall station has either one/two lamps or lamp floor indicator above the call button.

Solenoid (pop out) buttons

These fixtures are black solenoid buttons which latches on when pressed and pops out when the car stops on the selected floor, similar to Schindler's and Westinghouse's buttons in the 1960s. Pop-out buttons were used from 1960 until 1971. Some Kone pop-out buttons were also used in 1950s, but all of them have been modernized, so they might have been different.

1970s

NPN8 Fixtures

These are white plastic buttons which light up when pressed. The floor indicators are analogue which consists of illuminating squares for low-rise and illuminating rectangles for high-rise buildings. Hall lanterns are wedged arrows and light up orange. These fixtures were used until 1985, when Kone replaced them with the M fixtures. NPN8 fixtures were also known as KAG Fixtures by Swedish technicians, which is short for KONE Asea-Graham, due to the similarities with Asea-Graham fixtures, and as V Series, which stands for "Valkosarja" (White series).in Finnish.

White square buttons

These are large white square buttons that lit inside. They could be provided with information or custom words above the buttons, such as an "In Use" indicator above call buttons.

Touch sensitive buttons

These fixtures are round touch sensitive buttons with a square illuminating halo. They were also used in some Kone Marryat Scott elevators in the early 1980s.[1]

1980s to 1990s

Vandal resistant (aka. SWEDEN)

These fixtures are round solid metal buttons with engraved floor numbers and symbols. There is a small red lamp above the button. They are called as KONE SWEDEN fixtures by technicians and suppliers in Sweden. Introduced in 1980, they were commonly used in Sweden up until 1985, and occasionally used after 1985 in the Scandinavian countries up until 1995.

M buttons

Kone M fixtures started out in 1985 and were used in traction and hydraulic elevators with Kone Traffic Master System (TMS) control systems. They were also used in MacGregor Kone marine elevators, very few Kone Marryat Scott elevators in England and very early Kone MonoSpace elevators[2] in the late 1990s, as well as modernization during the 1980s-1990s and rarely in the 2000s. These fixtures mostly have barrel shaped and rectangular buttons with illuminating halo and digital floor indicators. Dewhurst buttons and chassis were also provided as an option[3].

Kone M fixtures were discontinued for regular elevator installations in 2001 but were still made for MacGregor Kone marine elevators and few modernizations until around mid 2000s[4]. They were succeed by the Kone Signalization System (also known as KSS) series.

Barrel shaped buttons

These buttons are the most common type found in many M series fixtures in the 1980s-1990s, and simply called as "Kone M Button". The buttons can be black or metallic, and have illuminating halo which light up in green or red. There was also a rare, gold-like version of these buttons. M series barrel shaped buttons can be flat or slightly protrudes. In Europe, the button for main/ground floor is normally marked green and protrudes from the panel. This is to make it easier for anyone to find the main floor or exit.

M series stands for "Mustasarja" (Black series).

Rectangular buttons

Another version of Kone M-Series button is rectangular with an illuminating halo. These buttons can be black, brown or stainless steel. They are mostly used in mid to high-rise Kone elevators from the late 1980s to the 1990s.

Touch sensitive buttons

Kone also made barrel shaped touch sensitive M-Series buttons. These buttons have a red line on the top. These buttons could be flat or concave. M-Series touch sensitive buttons are very rare.

Floor indicators

Kone M-Series used digital segmented floor indicators from the 1980s until around mid 1990s. During this period, the indicators could only support 7 segments display and as the result the ground floor is displayed as "0" (zero, instead of G) and the basement floors are displayed with a negative/minus followed by the floor number (e.g. "-1" for basement level one). In the late 1990s, an LED dot matrix was introduced, along with a large yellow electroluminescent display which were mostly used in Hong Kong, Finland, Australia and New Zealand.

Hall lanterns

Kone M-Series's hall lanterns are very distinctive. Arrows were shaped into triangles with a short line under them and light up by bulb. On later installations, the lanterns consist of six horizontal lines which are shaped like a triangle. Some hall lanterns are also combined with a digital floor indicator, either with segmented or dot matrix LED display.

M buttons for high-rise elevators

This is another style of M-Series fixtures used in high rise elevators in the 1980s and 1990s. Buttons can be silver or black rectangular with red illuminating halo. These buttons were arranged in a vertical zig-zag line. The car stations have a long black rectangular display going horizontally, with a digital indicator and small moving dots which represents the car position. It was also possible to be fitted with custom text as well, which light up red.

Novel Elements

Novel Elements fixtures were commonly found in Scandinavian countries. They were also used in Australia and New Zealand, but very rarely in Asia. They were used in hydraulic[5] and very early Kone MonoSpace[6] elevators in the mid 1990s. They were also used for modernization[7]. Buttons are rectangular with a tiny red lamp on the top left corner of the button. The floor indicators uses scrolling LED dot matrix display. These fixtures uses the same chime as the Kone M-Series. Novel Elements indicators are often used in modernisations, usually in conjunction with either Dewhurst or other fixtures.

Series 220

This is a European version of Series 220 used in mid-1990's that is similar to American Series 220 except they have tactiles on the buttons. Not much is known as these are extremely rare.

Indonesian fixtures

Further information: List of Indolift elevator fixtures#1990s.

These fixtures were only found in Indonesia, and were used in Indonesian Kone elevators from the mid to late 1990s. They were originally made by Indolift sometime in the mid 1990s. When Kone took over the company in 1995, Kone continued to make these fixtures under their own brand until around the late 1990s. These fixtures had two types of buttons. One is a brown or dark grey round button that is convex and has an illuminating number. The second one is a stainless steel button with a black marking and an illuminating halo. The floor indicators used either a 7-segments or an LED dot matrix display, the latter is extremely rare. Kone also retained Indolift's "circle" hall lanterns, but later they switched to a new design featuring triangle lanterns and a simple floor counter.

Hong Kong touch sensitive buttons

These button fixtures are found in Hong Kong, China. It is unknown if they are also found in other countries. Buttons are very similar to Delta/K-Delta buttons except that they are actually touch sensitive and the door control button symbols are transparent.

Other fixtures

Some Kone elevators in the 1980s-1990s were using Dewhurst fixtures, like the US81 square buttons. Custom fixtures also existed.

2000s to present

Sigma

Not to be confused with Sigma Elevator Company.

Sigma[8] fixtures were launched in around the late 1990s, and were used in Kone MonoSpace and early TranSys[9] elevators in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. These fixtures have round buttons that are either silver or black with a tactile and a curved red LED light at the top. The floor indicators use either LED segments or dot matrix display. The interior floor indicator is usually framed, but some others don't. The Sigma fixtures were also used in a few MonoSpace elevators in Japan in the early 2000s[10].

Delta

Delta[8] fixtures were launched in around the late 1990s. It was Kone's common fixture between the early and mid 2000s and was available in Asia, Europe, Australia, New Zealand as well as, but extremely rare, the United States and Canada. Delta fixtures were used for new installations and modernization. Dewhurst chassis was also available as an option (such as in Hong Kong), as well as an Innovation chassis on the Canadian and American Kone elevators.[3] Delta fixtures have been discontinued in around 2006[11].

There are at least four types of buttons; one which is round, two which is square, three which is rectangular, and four which is oval. These buttons came out either as stainless steel or black coated (with tactile and braille) and have a red LED line on the top. In Hong Kong, some rectangular stainless steel Delta buttons have both tactile and braille on them[12]. Floor indicators uses the same LED display as the one used in Sigma fixtures. There was also an electroluminescent display, with either a black background with yellow character or a grey background with a black character. Hall lanterns have two triangles which light up red. Some hall lanterns, especially those installed on the main floor have a floor indicator in between the two lanterns.

Kone made four versions of Delta fixtures, they are:

Delta ThinLine

This is a surface mounted fixture. Hall stations are simply mounted on the wall without having to recess the wall. The modernization version of this fixture is called ReVive Elegant Thinline[13]. ReVive Elegant Thinline has both surface mounted hall and car stations.

Delta SlimLine

This is a flush mounted fixture. Hall stations are flushed mounted on the wall. The modernization version of this fixture is called ReVive Elegant Flushline[14], ReVive Evergreen Flushline for historic/vintage elevators[15] and Revive Luxury Flushline[16]. ReVive Luxury Flushline is the only one that has yellow electroluminescent floor indicators.

Delta AntiVandal

This is a vandal resistant version of Delta. It has a transparent digital segmented floor indicators and Kone Sigma hall lantern arrows. The modernization version of this fixture is called ReVive AntiVandal Flushline[17].

K-Delta

K-Delta is very similar to Delta (see above). It is primarily used in Asia from the early to mid 2000s. It features black square buttons with a red LED strip at the top. The interior floor indicator is the Kone Sigma type, with a rounded rectangular frame. For the hall station indicator, it is the same type as Delta Slimline. Dewhurst chassis were also provided as well as landlords request[3]. Kone K-Delta fixtures have been discontinued and replaced by the current KDS series.

Thyman fixtures

Further information: List of Thyman elevator fixtures.

These fixtures were originally made by Thai Lift Industries in Thailand. When Kone bought the company in 2005, Kone continued on making these fixtures in Thailand for a few times. These fixtures consist of buttons that are shaped to look like the rectangle Kone M buttons. Square buttons were also available. The floor indicator is LED dot matrix display. Sometimes generic buttons could also be used in these fixtures.

KSS Series

Kone Signalization System (or KSS) is the current fixtures used in almost any Kone elevator models. It is primarily used for the European market. KSS fixtures consists of plastic silver-coated buttons with orange, blue or white illuminating halos, a dot-matrix floor counter, and a directional indicator consisting of a rhombus and two trapezoids. The trapezoids are positioned diagonally with their bases facing the sides of the rhombus on both left and right; they are positioned at the bottom of the rhombus for up and placed at the top for down. This directional indicator is also in the floor counter below the dot-matrix display[18]. The KSS series fixtures currently in production are KSS-140, -500, -570, -600, and -900 for the North American market, and KSS-140, -280, -300, -305, -400, -470, -570[19], -670, -800[19], -900[19], -970, -D20[20] and -D40[20] for the European market.

KDS

Not to be confused with Kinetek De Sheng.


KDS is the current fixtures line used for elevators in Asia and Pacific (Australia and New Zealand) since the mid 2000s. It is a successor of both Delta and K-Delta fixtures in Asia, and KSS in both Australia and New Zealand. The current KDS series produced are -50, -220 , -300 and -330. KDS 330 was launched in 2015 while KDS 220 was launched in 2016. There was also a version of KDS for modernization called ReVive, which is a combination of KSS 420, KDS 50 and KDS 300 fixtures[30]. Kone ReVive might have been discontinued.

In 2015, Kone launched the KDS 330 series which is based on KSS 280, followed by KDS 220 a year later.

Floor indicators are either LED dot matrix or segments display. Landing stations are surface mounted. It is possible for KDS 50 fixtures to be fitted with KDS 300-AUS buttons; these are commonly found in Australia and New Zealand. In the early 2010s, Kone introduced a new design of KDS 50 which features a new floor indicator design, with an addition of LCD display as an option. The early design is retained and still available as of now.

KDS 200

These fixtures might have been the very first KDS series. They are heavily based on the Kone Delta fixtures[31]. These fixtures were possibly only available in China. KDS 200 have been discontinued.

KDS 290/300

These fixtures consist of square or round stainless steel buttons that can be flush or surface mounted. In addition, it has five illumination color options for the buttons and LED indicators, they are red (standard), blue, white, green, and orange. Floor indicators used LED dot matrix display. KDS 290 refers to the surface mounted landing stations while KDS 300 refers to the flush mounted landing stations. In the 2010s, KDS 290 was no longer available. Sometimes, Dewhurst chassis are also provided as an option[3]. STEP buttons are also possible to be mounted on a KDS chassis[32], but this is extremely rare.

KDS 300-AUS

KDS 290/300 hall lanterns

Kone KDS have different styles of LED-based hall lanterns. KDS 290 refers to surface mounted landing fixtures.

Evergreen

These fixtures are designed for vintage elevator modernizations. These fixtures are made to look older. The buttons are small black buttons, with a red halo. These fixtures are only known to exist in Finland and Sweden, but they might also exist in some other countries. Originally these fixtures were launched in the early 2000s as ReVive Evergreen Flushline, which was based on the Kone Delta fixtures line[15].

2010s to current

KSS

In the early 2010s, Kone launched four new series for the KSS fixtures line; KSS 130 and KSS 140 which are vandal resistant fixtures and KSS 280 and KSS 700 which are normal fixtures. Also by this time Kone has discontinued several KSS series, and now only make KSS 140, 470, 570, 900 and KSS Design series. The KSS 130 might have been discontinued.

KSS 130

KSS 130 fixtures are durable, vandal-resistant fixtures normally found in European countries. These fixtures have surface mounted, round silver-coated buttons with amber or red halo and look similar as Dewhurst M-10 and M-20 Series buttons. The floor indicators are amber KSS 570/670-style LED dot-matrix with a stainless steel mesh display, making them vandal-resistant looking. In addition, the arrows on the hall lanterns are transparent. There are also fixtures that are similar to KSS 570/670 except it does not have a halo instead they are bead blasted stainless steel have tactile which light up when pressed. KSS 130 might have been discontinued.

KSS 140

KSS 140 is another type of vandal-resistant fixtures. These fixtures have round grey metal buttons with grey braille plates next to them, and use the same style of floor indicators as KSS 130. KSS 140 was launched in late 2010.

KSS 280 was launched in 2012, and it is available in Europe and Asia Pacific. These fixtures have square stainless steel buttons with white illuminating halo and high-contrast segmented LCD floor indicators. There are also white square buttons with braille plates, similar to ADA-compliant fixtures in North America. Panels are surface mounted. The call button panels have pressure bar on the top and/or bottom side with a black chevron-shaped arrow that lights up white when pressed. Sometimes the black square displays in the middle of the panel can be an LCD indicator as an option. Kone KSS 280 uses the KONE Information typeface (font) made by Dutch typeface designer Underware in the same year.[33] It was originally used in KSS 280 fixtures and was later adopted as Kone's corporate typeface.

By 2020, a flush mounted full height car station is available which look like a KSS 330 car station that is only found in Asia Pacific.

KSS 305

These fixtures remains the same as they were first introduced in the 2000s. They are only used in Kone TranSys elevators.

KSS 470

Kone still makes KSS 470 fixtures, primarily for MonoSpace, MiniSpace, TranSys and few other models. These are surface mounted fixtures with a full height car station.

KSS 570

Kone still makes KSS 570 fixtures, primarily for MonoSpace, MiniSpace, and TranSys elevators. These are surface mounted fixtures.

KSS 670

Kone still makes KSS 670 fixtures, primarily for MonoSpace, MiniSpace, and TranSys elevators. These are flush mounted fixtures.

KSS 700

KSS 700 was launched in November 2019 along with Kone DX series elevators (compromising the models MonoSpace DX, MiniSpace DX and TranSys DX). It is initially available in Europe and only for DX series elevators. KSS 700 looks the same like KDS 330 fixtures which are only found in Asia Pacific, but the only difference is that the arrow on the interior floor indicator is positioned next to the floor number rather than above it.[34]

KSS 800

KSS 800 is a fixture line for Kone Polaris/Destination destination dispatch elevators and it is sold in Asia Pacific and Europe. It is divided into two types; Stainless steel or D-design. For this fixture, the door jamb destination indicator has white LED dot-matrix with scrolling arrows and it is known as KSJ 853/863; KSJ 853 has a width of 33 mm while KSJ 863 has a width of 50 mm. All KSS 800 destination operating panels (DOPs) are surface mounted. In Asia Pacific, this fixture line comes along with the KDS 300 series. KSS 800 uses the KONE Information typeface.[33]

Stainless steel

The destination operating panels (DOPs) have black round buttons and black indicator with white LED dot-matrix. The hall and car station for this type is the KDS 300 or KDS 330 series, although the KDS 330 can only be used for the car station. There is also a Touchscreen destination panel known as KSP 858[35].

D-design

D-design has a similarly design destination panels as the KSS 800 stainless steel. The hall and car stations for this line are the black KSS Design (KSS D) series. The car station can be either partial (D20) or full (D40) height. There is also a Touchscreen destination panel known as KSP 978P[35].

KSS 900

KSS 900 is another fixture line for Kone Polaris destination dispatch elevators, and it is sold in Europe and Asia Pacific. The destination operating panels (DOP) consists of plastic solver coated round or square buttons and a LCD display.

The car station for KSS 900 is the KSS 570/670 style, with round or square projecting buttons and LCD indicators. For elevators working with traditional (full configuration) destination dispatch, there are two LCD floor indicators on the car station; one for showing the registered car calls and the other one is for showing the car's position.

KSS H

This is a handicap car station with Dewhurst JUS91-30EN buttons. The panel is a square box that is mounted on a handrail. These fixtures were also launched in November 2019 along with KSS 700 and Kone's DX Series elevators, and only available in Europe.[34]

KDS

Not to be confused with Kinetek De Sheng.


KDS fixtures are primarily used in the Asia Pacific markets and are made in Kone's factory in Kunshan, China. The current KDS series in production are KDS 50, 220, 300, 330 and KDS Design. In 2015, Kone introduced KSS 330, followed by KSS 220 a year later.

KDS 50

In the 2010s, Kone redesigned the KDS 50 fixtures with a new landing station and floor indicator design, and an LCD display with either blue or black background and white segmented characters become available as an option. The car station is now flushed to the wall and no longer feature a separate floor indicator. The buttons remains the same as before, which are round surface mounted buttons with either red or white illumination, and can be black or stainless steel. The LED indicators are always red. The early design of KDS 50 car stations are still available as of now.

KDS 90

KDS 90 is a set of fixtures that is exclusive in India and made by Kone India. It uses KDS 300's surface mounted square push buttons and floor indicators with white LED segments display[36]. There is also a variant of car station which look very similar to KDS 220 (see below)[37]. The surface mounted hall stations bears a similarity with KDS 50. The flush mounted hall stations has a similar arrangement with KDS 220 and 330, that is, a floor indicator in between the two landing call buttons.

KDS 96

This is a touch sensitive fixture made by Kone India, and exclusive in India[38].

KDS 220

KDS 220 was launched in 2016 and it is the latest series of the KDS fixtures family. It is mostly based on KDS 330 (see below), but KDS 220 uses a simple orange-illuminating LED digital segmented display for the floor indicators. Buttons are surface mounted and can be either black or stainless steel with orange illumination. For the landing fixtures, the floor indicator is integrated with the call station. The typeface (font) used for the button markings is KONE Information[33]. A regular KDS 300 wheelchair side panel can also be used along with this fixture as an option[39]. KDS 220 is basically a simplified and modular version of KDS 330 (see the next few sections below).
