Mitsubishi Electric has announced the release of a new air conditioning cassette, Mini VRF with reduced height and the next-generation of City Multi Variable Refrigerant Flow to its collection ahead of summer 2018.
The new air conditioning products feature improved essential functions and energy-saving requirements to make a positive impact on the cost of staying cool as the heat climbs, according to Atesh Mani, national product manager, Mitsubishi Electric Australia.
The MLZ-KP series ceiling mounted air conditioning unit is ideal for rooms where wall space is not available for mounted air conditioners.
“This is likely to be popular among inner-city Australians who own new-build apartments, offices or restaurants with a clean design. It’s perfect for applications where walls that can’t be penetrated for refrigerant pipework and electrical work, such as those made from glass, stone or concrete, or in heritage listed buildings,” he said.
Other feature highlights include: horizontal airflow and compact design (the unit is designed to fit between standard 450mm centred joists and the 185mm high slim body design enables installation in restricted ceiling spaces).
Mitsubishi Electric has also launched new single-fan air conditioning units to offer the market all of the benefits of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) in the company’s smallest ever City Multi chassis.
Known as mini-VRF, these systems provide multi-room heating or cooling for projects under 20kW and offer better efficiency, flexibility and controllability when compared to multi-split systems.
“In today’s property developments where noise, location and building design aesthetics pose a challenge, the new PUMY-SP with its reduced height (less than a metre), is a highly attractive option,” Mani said. “Developers can mix and match different indoor units from our M Series, Mr Slim and City Multi VRF range, including our stylish new wall mounted units to provide complete design flexibility. The reduced height of unit means it will blend into its surroundings and in particular balcony installations.”
Lightweight and compact in size. This is a 27% reduction in height and 25% reduction in weight, allowing it to be installed in locations where the unit is required to be unobtrusive, such as balconies.
“Design the perfect air conditioning system utilising combinations of different capacities and types including wall mounted, floor standing, ceiling cassette, bulkhead and ducted units,” Mani said.
Moreover, the outdoor unit allows piping from any four directions; front, back, bottom, or right. This enables easier horizontal connection for collective layout.
The noise level can be reduced up to 10dB(A). Mitsubishi Electric has also launched the next-generation of VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) air conditioning with the new City Multi YNW to offer the market a system that delivers ultra-quiet noise levels, an increased performance and a reduced footprint.
The new structural design has a four-sided heat exchanger design and improved core components, such as compressor and fan, significantly improving energy-saving performance.
Compared to the existing models, all the single modules in YNW Series have an improved Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER). The low-noise mode which conventionally only had one pattern has been increased to four patterns so that a mode can be selected from a total of five patterns.
In the new model, the four-sided heat exchanger is mounted on the upper part of the module near the fan. This allows air to be taken in effectively increasing the heat exchanger efficiency. At the same time single modules of up to 56kW have been added to the R2-Series. Single modules are smaller, with L modules replacing the EP400 and P450 modules, reducing installation space by approximately 29%.
The unique City Multi heat recovery two-pipe option also allows for phased installation, meaning that the cooling and heating system can be installed around a project build, with individual sections commissioned as required.
