Midea has won the 2023 Global Product Technical Innovation Award at IFA which is currently underway in Berlin, Germany.
IFA is held from 1-5 September showcasing the latest innovations in air conditioning, smart home technology and electronics.
Midea's groundbreaking product, the PortaSplit, won the award.
PortaSplit, is a smart air conditioner that combines cutting-edge cooling technology with unprecedented flexibility. This innovative home appliance is set to make its market debut in 2024 and Midea is proud to unveil the product at IFA 2023.
Unlike conventional AC units, the Midea PortaSplit seamlessly merges the portability of a portable AC with the superior cooling capacity and efficiency of a split AC. This unique fusion delivers powerful and tranquil cooling comfort, defying the limitations of existing cooling solutions.
Notably, Midea's PortaSplit is a direct response to the needs of modern consumers. It has been a longstanding challenge in balancing cooling efficiency, energy conservation, flexibility, and ease of installation.
The PortaSplit introduces two key innovations. It's the first plug-and-play split AC without the need for fixed installation. Another remarkable feature of the PortaSplit is its outstanding cooling performance.
It is a portable AC that has the same efficiency as a conventional split AC, with a strong cooling capacity of 3.5 kW and a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) of 6.1, surpassing other portable ACs in the market.
In fact, the PortaSplit significantly outperforms a conventional portable AC in terms of cooling capacity and energy efficiency. According to StiWa test conditions, the PortaSplit performed four times better in cooling capacity and had three times higher energy efficiency compared to a conventional portable AC.
Furthermore, the PortaSplit's heat exchange system enables whole-room cooling without venting air out, maintaining constant air pressure and improving cooling performance. improving cooling performance and maintaining constant air pressure. P
Energy saving is another crucial aspect of the design of PortaSplit. Midea's improved AI algorithms provide up to 15 per cent additional energy savings. It ensures a continuous and efficient cooling experience by adjusting performance according to the changing environmental conditions and enhanced predictive models.
Additionally, the PortaSplit includes the Air Magic+ technology, which purifies the air by emitting negative ions and reducing the spread of bacteria and viruses. This added layer of protection underscores Midea's commitment to user well-being and health.
Lastly, PortaSplit was engineered with advanced soundproofing technology, allowing the air conditioner to operate at a mere 39dB in silent mode. This ensures restful sleep while maintaining optimal comfort.
