This is a list of Shanghai Mitsubishi elevator fixtures. Note that Shanghai Mitsubishi is a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, so most of the fixtures listed in this page are based on Mitsubishi's fixtures, while a few of them are basically a remake of the Mitsubishi counterparts by Shanghai Mitsubishi.

Late 1980s to early 1990s

These are the same set of fixtures as the one used in the late 1980s-early 1990s Mitsubishi elevators. The floor buttons are brown colored plastic with orange illumination and the floor indicators are digital 16-segments display, but there are also analog ones with printed numbers placed over a set of bulbs; these numbers lights up orange. The landing indicators uses analog display. The panels are dark brown colored resin.

Mid to late 1990s

In the mid 1990s, Shanghai Mitsubishi also used the same set of fixtures as the one used in Mitsubishi GPS (or GRANDEE in Japan) elevators. These fixtures consist of dark grey colored "wave style" resin panels with dark grey square plastic buttons which lights up orange when pressed, and the standard Mitsubishi LED dot matrix floor indicators. It is unknown if the flat stainless steel panels were also available.

These fixtures were used in Shanghai Mitsubishi GPS-III and GPS-IIIB elevators. It is unknown if they were also used in other models. It is also unknown if vandal resistant buttons were also available.

Fixtures used in Shanghai Mitsubishi Elenessa elevators

These fixtures are the same as the ones used in Mitsubishi Electric's Elenessa elevators.

Fixtures used in HOPE-II elevators

These fixtures consist of square plastic buttons which light up orange when pressed and LED floor indicators. There are two types of buttons; one is the regular size and the other one is the smaller size, the latter are normally used in high-rise installations to accommodate multiple buttons on the car station. The LED floor indicator inside the car has the same arrangement as the one used in the GPS-III/GPS-IIIB elevators, in which the arrow is positioned next to the number. These fixtures are used in Shanghai Mitsubishi HOPE-II[2]. They can also be used in Shanghai Mitsubishi LEHY-II elevators as an option[3]. These fixtures appear to be no longer made by Shanghai Mitsubishi.
