Hitachi Reaches 1,260 m/min, the World's Fastest(1) Speed with Ultra-High-Speed Elevator
Recorded in speed test by public accreditation body in China

TOKYO, June 2, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE:6501) today announced that its ultra-high-speed elevator reached a speed of 1,260 m/min. The speed was recorded during a test of the elevator under installation in Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre, a skyscraper complex building in China. The speed of 1,260 m/min corresponds to the world's fastest among all elevators operating today.

In May 2016, the ultra-high-speed elevator reached 1,200 m/min as its rated speed. The elevator that marked the world's fastest speed at that time is now in the final adjustment phase. Hitachi has been pursuing even higher speed, modified control units and safety devices of the elevator, and achieved its running speed of 1,260 m/min during an on-site test. Now the achievement is recorded by National Elevator Quality Supervision and Inspection Center (Guang Dong), a public accreditation body of elevators. Since the test was conducted for the purpose of technology development of Hitachi elevators, the elevator in Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre will run at its rated speed, 1,200 m/min, when it's in service.

Hitachi will utilize this achievement for future product development, and strive to offer elevators with higher running quality as well as safety and comfort.
