These elevators uses two series of fixtures; D-Line with green illuminating halo buttons and LED floor indicators, and E-Type with red illuminating halo square buttons and digital segments indicators. Sometime in the late 2000s, D-Line with red illuminating halo buttons and LED floor indicators were used, along with the newer silver polished M-Line buttons which were relatively rare to be used on these elevators. The chimes were the improved version of the 1980s-1990s M-Line chimes and comes in single and double-stages chimes for up and down travels respectively. When the red D-Line and newer M-Line fixtures were introduced, newer chimes were also introduced which consists of two-stages chime for upward and four-stages chime for downward travel[1]. The chimes used for elevators with E-Type fixtures consists of single-stage chime for upward[2] and double-stages chime for downward travel. The latest batch of Schindler 5400 AP elevator, which was made between 2012 and 2013 uses the four-stages and double-stages chimes with lowered pitch. In addition, they uses a reused version of the original 1980s-1990s M-Series capacity plates.[3]

Schindler 5400 AP was discontinued in 2014 but it is still in-production for few Asian countries. It was succeeded by Schindler 5500 but still made for Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.
