Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air Conditioning Europe (MHIAE) has extended its range of indoor units for the European market with the launch of the new ZTL series for residential and commercial applications. The ZTL range fits into the Standard Plus category of products and is available in a choice of five smaller capacity models: SRK15 – 50ZTL-W (1.5kW – 5.0kW at 798mm wide) and two larger capacity units: SRK63 – 71ZTL-W (6.3kW and 7.1kW at 998mm wide). The 1.5kW unit is designed for single split use and fits perfectly into any small or well insulated room. The full range offers high seasonal efficiency performance up to A++ in cooling and heating.
In addition, the new ZTL series offers the convenience of integrated wireless LAN. When used in combination with the Smart M-Air app units can be operated and monitored from a smartphone or tablet for optimum ease of use and control. The app also offers other useful features such as allowing users to check their electricity consumption, and an alarm which will notify users if they leave their property without turning off the air conditioner.
In developing a contemporary new external look for the ZTL range, MHIAE teamed up with Tensa, one of Europe’s leading product designers, based in Italy. This collaboration focused on a fusion of Japan’s design heritage of clean, simple lines with the ‘softer’ European look. The result is an indoor air conditioning unit with sophisticated curved lines that will complement any modern interior decor.
The remote control for the ZTL series has been newly developed by Mitsubishi Thermal Systems with many enhanced features. These include updated buttons and a backlight function that illuminates the display at the press of a button, making it easier to operate the units in low light conditions. Furthermore, from the new remote control the temperature can now be set in intervals of half a degree Celsius compared to the current remote which uses full degrees.
The development of the new ZTL series reflects MHIAE’s commitment to build on its rich product line-up, including existing models, to further enhance its brand image and expand its market share. Going forward, MHIAE will continue to offer optimal thermal solutions built on technology and product development. It will also remain focused on the needs of the individual consumer, and high-quality sales and follow-up service for air conditioners, to meet the varied demands of the markets it serves.
