Panasonic Showcases Innovative HVAC+R Solutions at Climatización 2021


Panasonic is presenting its latest innovations for heating, cooling and refrigeration at Climatización 2021 (C&R 2021), the international Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Fair which takes place on 16-19 November in Madrid.

Highlights to be seen on the Panasonic booth (Stand 10D01) will include the latest additions to the Aquarea range of air-to-water heat pumps. Across Europe, many countries are highlighting the need to decarbonise heating and Panasonic is committed to developing low carbon technologies to assist in this vision. The company has innovation and the environment at the forefront of its R&D programme working with world-class engineers and technologists to deliver solutions that will help improve people’s lives around the world.

INNOVATION GALLERY features the Aquarea EcoFlex

Panasonic is honoured that its Aquarea EcoFlex air-to-water heat pump has been selected to feature in the C&R 2021 Innovation Gallery. This special feature showcases just 11 examples of low carbon, cutting-edge solutions and the Aquarea EcoFlex has been selected from among all the proposals submitted to form part of this cutting-edge showcase that will be on display at the exhibition from 16 to 19 November at the IFEMA MADRID exhibition centre.

The new Aquarea EcoFlex is a ground-breaking system that delivers reliable and efficient air conditioning, heating and domestic hot water supply with just one outdoor unit. It has a heat recovery function which uses waste heat from Air Conditioners to heat water and is ideal for installations with limited spaces such as apartments. The Aquarea EcoFlex incorporates a ducted system within the property, which also features Panasonic’s ground-breaking nanoe™ X technology for improved indoor environments. Designed with Wi-Fi connectivity as standard, the Aquarea EcoFlex comes equipped enabling smart control and energy monitoring. It offers outstanding efficiency and energy savings with low CO2 emissions and will be available from Spring 2022.

nanoe™ X: improving protection 24/7

Panasonic’s maintenance-free nanoe™ X technology produces hydroxyl radicals (also known as OH radicals), which are abundant in nature and have the capacity to inhibit pollutants including certain viruses and bacteria to clean and deodorise hard surfaces and soft furnishings. When integrated into air conditioning units, nanoe™ X can work independently from the heating and cooling operation when the unit is in fan mode. This, coupled with the use of Panasonic’s Comfort Cloud app helps improve protection 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Panasonic units with nanoe™ X as standard include the residential Etherea wall-mounted range and Floor Console unit and in Commercial Air Conditioning, the Adaptive Duct, the new Cassette 60:60, Cassette 90:90, Ceiling and Wall type are also available with nanoe™ X built in.

Other booth highlights

Panasonic will also be showing its most compact and natural commercial refrigeration solution, the new CO2 CR Series of CO condensing units which provide the ideal solution for supermarkets, convenience stores and gas stations. The new condensing units utilise naturally occurring CO to provide two sustainable evaporation temperatures: a medium temperature of -20 for showcasing refrigerated goods; and a low temperature of up to -45 for the preservation of frozen foods.

Support, connectivity, and ease of use are key themes for Panasonic this year. With a smart range of solutions that brings control to your fingertips, Panasonic will present its latest range of software and support solutions, including:

·   The new Smart Multisite Control Solution, a twofold, enterprise-wide energy management platform for corporate HVAC installations. This smart solution offers a dual approach: AC Smart Cloud is designed to be used by business owners and facilities or energy managers for remote control, reporting and scheduling, while the AC Service Cloud is an ideal solution for HVAC professionals requiring remote access to a system for maintenance and monitoring purposes. Easy to install and with a simple, user-friendly interface, the Smart Multisite Control Solution is ideal for organisations wanting instant and comprehensive data of building or campus-wide (or even a global overview) HVAC systems.

·     Aquarea Service Cloud - this easy-to-use software allows installers to take care of their customers’ heating systems remotely. It saves time and money and shortens the response time, thus increasing customer satisfaction.

·      The latest ECOi and ECO G BMS interface allows a more reliable and straightforward integration between Panasonic HVAC units and BMS (BACnet, Modbus, KNX), without the need for an additional gateway to provide a faster, cheaper and easier solution for future projects. And for home automation projects, Panasonic systems now offer easy connection to KNX, Modbus, Lonworks, Bacnet and other proprietary Home Automation Systems.

·      Aquarea Designer, the online tool is optimised to help professionals easily identify the most appropriate Aquarea air-to-water heat pump for a particular application, to calculate the savings compared to other heat sources and to calculate CO2 emissions very quickly.
