Panasonic has introduced the world’s first tropical inverter air conditioners which are designed to specifically meet the climatic challenges of the Middle East, it was announced today.
Air conditioners and washing machines are high power consuming appliances and account for nearly 70% of utility bills here in the region. Keeping this in mind, the new models define a new path breaking technology in the field of Air conditioners, especially for tropical climates like Middle East and Africa. The new machines which can control the speed of the compressor through inverter control, not only cools 1.5 times faster than conventional air conditioners, but does so by consuming 30% less power.
The new range of air conditioners comes with the Smart Inverter Compressor, which are powerful, fast and extremely energy efficient. With searing temperatures in the region, the new technology has made it possible for an 18000 Btu Air conditioner to reach upto 22000 Btu, and a 24000 Btu model to reach up to 27000 Btu, based on the requirements resulting in faster cooling. Furthermore, the new technology precisely manages the speed of the compressor, resulting in up to 30% less energy consumption compared to a non inverter model.
The existing ECONAVI feature has also been upgraded with the addition of the Sunlight Detection system, which will help the AC control its cooling based on ambient light conditions .In addition to the ECONAVI and Intelligent Inverter features, the Deluxe Non-Inverter models also come with the new nanoe-G air purifying system that utilize ions and radicals to purify the air in the room. It works effectively on airborne impurities and fabric, ensuring a cleaner living environment.
“In keeping with our goal of becoming the No.1 Green Innovation Company in the electronics industry by 2018, these new models will not only add to the comfort of our consumers, but will also help reduce energy consumption and further empower individuals to save energy easily and contribute to the environment,” Hidekazu Tachibana, Director Consumer Electronics Department, Panasonic Marketing Middle East and Africa.
Intelligent Inverter Technology:
These new air conditioners run on minimal power with precise temperature control. By reducing wasteful cooling operation, InverterSeries can achieve up to 50% less energy usage compared to the non-inverter units. In addition to energy savings, the Intelligent Inverter Technology also delivers constant comfort with wide power output range and quick cooling during the start up period.
Inverter control in the desert climate is now possible thanks to unique, innovative technologies. The result is a new dimension in air conditioning that lets users enjoys more powerful cooling than ever, a stable room temperature, and outstanding energy saving performance.
Cooling is possible even when the outside temperature is 55ºC. The new models featuring a highly durable compressor and fan motor to maintain room comfort even under the hottest conditions. A tightly sealed electrical component box prevents fine sand particles from getting in to protect the high-precision inverter circuit. And an original Auto-Cooling System prevents the temperature inside the box from rising due to heat generated by the circuit board.
ECONAVI Room Air-Conditioners:
New ECONAVI with Sunlight Detection detects changes in sunlight intensity in the room to reduce the waste of cooling under less sunlight conditions. As weather conditions changes from sunny to cloudy or night, ECONAVI detects less sunlight intensity and determines less cooling power is required. If cooling power remains the same, then energy will be wasted. ECONAVI detects this waste and reduces cooling power by an amount equivalent to increasing the set temperature accordingly.
The revolutionary Panasonic ECONAVI utilizes high-precision Human Sensor and Control Program technologies to optimize air-conditioner operation according to room conditions. These technologies help detect unnecessary waste of energy. At the same time, the air conditioner will also self-adjust the cooling capacity while maintaining uninterrupted cooling, comfort and convenience. Furthermore the new range of air conditioners offer higher energy savings of up to 30% while maintaining uninterrupted cooling, comfort and convenience.
