Fujitec XIOR is the current machine room less elevator series made by Fujitec and exclusively sold in Japan. It was launched in 2008.


The XIOR elevator series is a machine room less elevator equipped with safety features (see section below) and LED glass clotch ceiling lightings. In this model, the car station inside the car features LCD floor indicators and round white buttons with tactile and orange illumination. The door open button is green to avoid confusion with the door close button. There are also bigger black square buttons which are flat and made of glass. Outside the elevator there is usually an LED dot matrix indicator, though LCD ones are often found in some elevators as an option. In addition, there are usually two side wall car stations for the wheelchair inside the car with one of them having an LED dot matrix display. Standard XIOR elevator consists of three types; R Type for residential, P Type for passenger and B Type for bed/hospital.

Originally the XIOR was produced as a standard passenger elevator type, but due to wide range of needs, it was expanded to include a custom/order-made type. Typically, a standard type one has a maximum capacity of 1000 kilograms and 15 persons, while the custom type one can carry up to 2000 kilograms and 30 persons. Both types can run up to 105 meters per minute. In addition, the XIOR elevator can functions as a freight or even a freight-passenger elevator.

Safety features

  • A door reopen sensor angled to detect obstructions outside the elevator door, which does not require one to block to the conventional door sensors.
  • Inner "Door entraptment device", when the sensors above the inner doors detects something, the doors will not open until the obstruction is removed. If the door is in the process of opening,the door will stop opening and remain at the position until the obstruction is cleared.
