Mitsubishi GPX was a standard compact passenger elevator manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Elevator for overseas market, mainly for the Southeast Asian market.


GPX is similar to GPS-III, although this model has limited basic specifications. It is a geared traction elevator model for low-rise buildings up to 16 floors. Features includes Reduced Information Set Computer (RISC) microprocessors, variable voltage variable frequency (VVVF) inverters, Data Network System with multiple microprocessor modules and a single System LSI semiconductor device.

Due to its similarity with GPS-III, the only way to identify if a Mitsubishi elevator is a GPX is by looking at where the rated capacity is listed. Unlike GPS-III where the rated capacity is listed on the floor indicator display (just above the speaker, only for flush mounted car stations), GPX elevators have their rated capacity shown in a separate badge below the floor indicator display. In addition, Mitsubishi GPX does not have a service cabinet below the car station.


This model was first marketed in 1998[1] and was discontinued around late 2000s.


GPS-III specifications complied with Japan, EN-81 and Malaysia/Singapore code.
