Panasonic launches dual sensor ACs
Jeddah, April 19, 2011
Panasonic, the global leader in innovation and technology, has launched a new range of dual sensor air-conditioners for the Middle East market.
Panasonic has upgraded its existing range of air conditioners by introducing Ecopatrol technology, which senses the presence of a person in the room and auto adjusts the set temperature to an energy efficient level.
In cases of low activity detection Ecopatrol senses absence in the room and cools select areas, which translates into reduced energy consumption, a statement said.
“The new ACs use 20 per cent less energy when cooling and up to 30 percent less energy when heating,” said Salah Alesayi, air conditioner marketing manager, Alesayi Electronics.
“The Ecopatrol concept applies high precision human sensor and control program technologies to optimize air conditioner operation according to room conditions. The units utilize this technology to detect where energy is normally wasted and self-adjusts cooling and heating power.”
The Ecopatrol concept reduces waste in three simple steps. It examines the level of activity and human presence in a room. It then evaluates changes in location, activity and automatically adjusts the level of airflow needed, according to the statement.
Said Norihiro O'Hara, Panasonic Marketing Middle East, KSA office general manager, said: “Going green by saving energy shouldn’t compromise your comfortable lifestyle. With a Panasonic air conditioner individuals get to enjoy cleaner air provided by the Advance+Plus e-ion air purifying system featuring the Ecopatrol Sensor.”
Advance+Plus e-ion technology is designed to monitor changes in the degree of air cleanliness. It activates the air purifying function when necessary to maintain clean and healthier air.
Panasonic air conditioners also come with an in-built air purifying system, the statement said.
Whether the air conditioner is switched on or off, one touch of a button activates the function. As soon as the patrol sensor detects the level of dust particles in the air has reached an unhealthy level, e-ions are released to clean the air from dust and harmful micro-organisms, it added. – TradeArabia News Service
