This is a list of Schaefer elevator fixtures.

1960s-1970s

LT 18 (?)

In the 1970s, the buttons were round plastic that protrudes from the panel and lights up when pressed.

1980s-1990s

Buttons and indicator lamps

Style 28 Q/R

These buttons and indicator lamps were introduced sometime in the 1980s. The buttons can be square or round buttons. Note that the square version is indicated by "Q" while the round version is indicated by "R".

  • MT 28 - square or round push button (MT means "Micro (push) button")
  • ET 28 - square touch sensitive button with illuminating halo and with or without marking (ET means "Electronic (touch sensitive/capacitive) button")
  • PT 28 - square stainless steel push button with a dot lamp on the top left corner (PT means "Armour button")
  • MA 28 - square, round or arrow shaped indicator lamp (MA means "Micro indicator")

For MT series buttons and indicator lamps, there are additional characters ("X", "XX", "XXX" or "X XX") added at the end of the model name which indicates the cap design used in the buttons and/or indicator lamps:

  • M - stainless steel, for square buttons
  • M LED - stainless steel with a dot lamp on the top left corner, for square buttons
  • P - polycarbonate which lights up entirely when pressed, for square buttons
  • P LED - polycarbonate with a dot lamp on the top left corner, for square buttons
  • LR - stainless steel with illuminating halo, for square buttons
  • RLR - stainless steel with illuminating halo, for round buttons
  • RP - polycarbonate which illuminates entirely, for round buttons
  • LP - polycarbonate which illuminates entirely, for arrow indicator lamps

The MT 28 M LED buttons were commonly used by Thyssen in the 1980s and Haushahn from the 1980s until the late 1990s. Other variations of button were also used by other elevator companies as well, such as Lift Munich. Style 28 buttons were also used in DAN and possibly MacGregor elevators installed in cruise ships built in the 1980s and 1990s. However, some of these elevators have been modernized with newer but nearly identical style Schaefer buttons in the 2000s.

Floor indicators and hall lanterns

In the 1980s and 1990s, Schaefer made floor indicators with either a digital segments or LED dot matrix display. These indicators are integrated into the car station or just installed separately above the elevator door. Sometimes, indicators above door are accompanied by triangle shaped lanterns.

2000s-current

Schaefer makes different types of buttons and indicator lamps (e.g. out of service, over load, intercom light, emergency light, etc.).
