Mitsubishi Series Z is an escalator model made by Mitsubishi. It was first introduced in 2006 for Japan, 2007 for markets outside Japan and 2008 for the United States[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
