Mitsubishi Series J (also known as J-Type) was an escalator made by Mitsubishi Electric, first marketed for overseas in 2003[1]. It was discontinued sometime in the late 2000s? and succeeded by the Series Z escalators, but it is still being made by Mitsubishi Elevator Korea and Shanghai Mitsubishi.


Mitsubishi Series J escalators have three different types distinguished by their balustrade type:

  • JS-SE: Superslim balustrade with glass panel
  • JS-LE: Glass panel balustrade with illumination
  • JP-E: Robust stainless steel balustrade

They are equipped with high efficient helicar gear-drive machine and linear type handrail drive system which can saves power up to full 30%. They also saves space for more than 10% due to their compact truss. Safety features includes drive-chain safety device, step-chain safety device, speed governor, and more.
