Keeping cool with inverter technology.

Panasonic announced it has introduced the world's first tropical inverter air conditioners designed to specifically meet the climatic challenges of the Middle East.

Air conditioners and washing machines are high power consuming appliances and account for nearly 70 per cent of utility bills in this region. "Keeping this in mind, the new models define a new path-breaking technology in the field of air conditioners, especially for the tropical climates of the 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 per cent less power," a Panasonic statement said.

The new range of air conditioners comes with the Smart Inverter Compressor, which is powerful, fast and extremely energy-efficient. With searing temperatures in the region, the new technology has made it possible for an 18,000 Btu air conditioner to reach up to 22,000 Btu, and a 24,000 Btu model to reach up to 27,000 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 per cent less energy consumption compared to a non-inverter model.

Cooling is possible even when the outside temperature is 55 degrees C. 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.

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. 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 utilises high-precision human sensor and control programme technologies to optimise air-conditioner operation according to room 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 utilise 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, said.
