MHI launches new flagship R32 units

exceedhyper-cuJAPAN: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) is to launch a new range of packaged air conditioners running on the lower GWP refrigerant R32.

The ExceedHyper range will be progressively introduced from May in a range of sizes from 3-6hp.

The new models, which will become MHI’s flagship products in Japan, are said to deliver the industry’s highest level of energy efficiency.

A new RC-DX3 eco-touch remote control unit will be simultaneously introduced, offering enhanced readability, operating ease and more advanced functions than the earlier model.

Within the ExceedHyper lineup are the FDT Series of 4-way cassettes with the ability to change the path of air emitted toward the ceiling and horizontally. This is said to provide the desired airflow while suppressing unpleasant draughts. The FDT Series room units are also equipped with a sensor to detect human movement, automatically controlling the temperature setting, shutting down when no one is present, and automatically starting up again when the person returns.
