The Otis 2000 elevator is an elevator model produced by Otis from 1993 until in the mid 2000s mainly for European market, although they can also be exported to Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and South America.


The Otis 2000 elevator has various models. These elevators were using fixtures that was later reused in the Gen2 elevators. The car station is positioned on the side of the cab wall and has two lights on both sides of the panel The buttons are round concave with red or green illuminating halo placed on a oval button plate and has illuminating symbol next to the buttons. Some have vandal-resistant concave buttons with a small dot lamp on the center. Even rare, few elevators have touch sensitive/capacitive concave buttons. The floor indicators are LCD digital segments display. Some elevators doesn't have a door close button, as this was an optional feature.

They were all introduced in 1993[1]. It is unknown when these models were discontinued, but they don't exist anymore most likely in 2007. Only a few models are still being made today and only available in certain countries. The Otis 2000 is probably a successor of the 1980s Otis Europa 2000 model.
