An Elevator Terminal or Console (as named in the Metroid Prime 3: Corruption level data) is an interactive panel that is used in two instances to activate an Elevator: Lift Hub and Auxiliary Lift. An Elevator Terminal is activated by entering Context-Sensitive Mode and pressing the button for whichever floor Samus wishes to go.
The Lift Hub's Terminal takes Samus between three floors: the ground, first and second. It is frequently used when navigating Pirate Command and requires no puzzle to use. It features symbols on each of the buttons which matches one of the ones found on Pirate X-Ray Pads, and also resembles the Grapple Swing Point symbol.
The Auxiliary Lift connects the lower area of the G.F.S. Valhalla to the upper one, which is where Samus finds the Leviathan Command Codes she is searching for. It is offline until Samus rips a broken panel off of the wall and reveals an Energy Cell Station. Once an Energy Cell is successfully reinserted, the elevator will become ready to use.
