Panasonic Heating & Cooling Solutions introduces the Adaptive Ducted F3 range for its VRF systems, designed for retail, hotel and office applications. The range features a new vertical mounting option and a choice of rear or bottom air inlet, increasing fitting possibilities. This, and a choice of 12 capacities, from 1.5 kW – 16 kW, provides very flexible options for installers.
The Adaptive Ducted Units come in a compact design for the ultimate space-saving solution, with a height of just 250mm and ranges in weight from 26kg to 42kg, making it well adapted for projects requiring a more discreet fit. Although small, the design still allows for a powerful 150 Pa External Static Pressure, and optimal airflow set-up is possible depending on ducting design and conditions. It also features two integrated R32 refrigerant leak detectors for security.
In addition, the unit’s design permits a smooth airflow, which helps to achieve an incredibly low noise operation down to a market-leading 20dBA, whilst still maintaining powerful pressure and therefore resulting in quiet comfort for users. Smart sensors control Discharge Air Temperature for precise room temperature control and provide the possibility to reduce cold draughts during heating operation.
A series highlight is the industry-leading introduction of both horizontal and vertical installation options, which enables discrete placement outside the room even if a small ceiling limits space for ductwork – the unit’s drain pan is conveniently suitable for both horizontal and vertical installations. The range also allows for selectable rear or bottom air inlet thanks to its adjustable panels. The series includes a more powerful high-lift, built-in drain pump that allows drain piping to be elevated up to 701 mm from the base of the unit.
The entire series has Panasonic’s maintenance-free nanoe X technology (Generator Mark 2 = 9,6 trillion Hydroxyl Radicals/sec) built-in as standard. This innovative technology produces hydroxyl radicals (also known as OH radicals), which are abundant in nature and have the capacity to inhibit certain pollutants, viruses, and bacteria to clean and deodorise hard surfaces and soft furnishings, improving protection 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ensure a pleasant environment for all. The technology is ideal for a wide range of applications, with nanoe X having a proven effect against odours in large spaces.
Additionally, the Adaptive Ducted Units are compatible with all VRF controls including the new CONEX Controller with Bluetooth built-in and Apps for quick, convenient set-up. The innovative controller can be used through a smartphone or tablet with flexible, daily remote-control operation thanks to the Panasonic H&C Control App. The controller is also compatible with the Panasonic H&C Diagnosis App for analysis and troubleshooting.
