Notable elevator types/models


These three models were originally produced during the GoldStar era, started in the early 1990s. LVP is a low-rise geared traction elevator with 60 m/min (1 m/s) speed. MVP is a low to mid-rise geared traction elevator with 60-90 m/min (1-1.5 m/s) speeds. HVP is a high-rise traction elevator and it is divided into two types; HVP-I which uses geared (helical gear) machine and has speeds of 90-150 m/min (1.5-2.5 m/s), and HVP-II which uses gearless machine and has speeds of 120-360 m/min (2-6 m/s). All of these models have red digital segmented display for floor indicators. These models were succeeded by LGP, MGP and HGP.


The successor models of LVP, MVP and HVP. These models have button beep added inside and some of the elevators have car call cancel feature.

Di (Distributed Inverter)

A successor of LGP, MGP and HGP, this is a geared traction elevator with distributed inverter (DI) and was made from around the late 1990s to 2004. In this model, the digital segments on the floor indicators have been changed from red to orange. In addition, a button beep inside has become a standard feature and some elevators have the ability to cancel a car call selection.
