Mitsubishi Series Z is an escalator model made by Mitsubishi. It was first introduced in 2006 for Japan, 2007 for markets outside Japan for EN115 standard and 2008 for the United States under ASME A17.1 Safety Code[1]. This model is Mitsubishi's current global escalator model, and a successor of the J series.


Mitsubishi Series Z escalators usually feature a standard AC single speed (AC/1) control system, although there is also a VVVF control (optional) which can control the speed in Automatic and Variable-Speed operations. In Variable-Speed operation, the speed can be selected according to the frequency use, number of passengers, and more.

Unlike the Series J, Series Z has a more sleeker design with rounded handrail inlet cap and clearly contrasted floor plate. It also saves space, with a truss of only 205 mm. Safety features includes steps with anti-slip grooves, stepped (raised) demarcation line, smaller angle combs, and brighter demarcation lines.

Series Z escalators have three different models, distinguished from their balustrade design:

  • ZS: Mirror panel with thin stainless steel guard rails.
  • ZL: Similar to ZS but has a thicker stainless steel guiderail and an under handrail lightning.
  • ZP: Stainless steel deck board. The guard rail is similar to ZL.


  • AC 3-phase power supply (50 or 60 Hz)
  • 0.5 m/s speed
  • AC single speed (AC/1, standard) or VVVF (optional, mainly for energy saving mode) control system
