Mitsubishi Electric’s all-seeing eye
The 3D i-See Sensor scans a room to detect exactly how many people are in it and switches off the air conditioning when a room is empty.
Available immediately for the Mr Slim and City Multi 600 x 600 cassette ranges, the slim unit is only 245mm in height above ceiling, making it ideal for narrow spaces.
The SLZ/PLFY cassette units have also been designed to make installation easier, with temporary hanging hooks, a drop-prevention cord, and hexagonal screws which can be removed even if the screw hole becomes worn.
Occupant comfort is also said to be improved with a new airflow feature which can direct air horizontally across the ceiling, helping eliminate uncomfortable drafts, and a new 3D turbo fan which reduces sound levels.
