Panasonic Heating & Cooling Solutions has introduced the Adaptive Ducted F3 range for its VRF systems in 12 capacities from 1.5 - 16kW.
Designed for retail, hotel and office applications, the line-up features a new vertical mounting option and a choice of rear or bottom air inlet to increase fitting options.
The units come feature a compact design with a height of just 250mm and weights 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 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 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 701mm from the base of the unit.
The entire series has Panasonic’s maintenance-free nanoe X technology built-in as standard. This 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.
The units are compatible with all VRF controls including the new CONEX controller with Bluetooth built-in and apps for quick, convenient set-up. The 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.
