JAPAN: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has commenced production of its new seven-model ZTL Series of domestic air conditioners for overseas markets.
Mass production of small capacity models (1.5kW-5kW) for the European and Turkish markets has begun, with production of large capacity models (6.3kW-7.1kW) and units for the Australian and New Zealand markets to follow.
The models for Europe and Turkey can be controlled and monitored with a smartphone or tablet when used in combination with MHI’s dedicated Smart M-Air app. The app also offers other convenient features such as allowing users to check their electricity consumption, and an alarm which will notify users if they leave their home without turning off the air conditioner.
The new remote control for the ZTL series is said to have updated buttons, improved usability, as well as a backlight function. The temperature can be set in intervals of 0.5ºC, compared to the current remote which uses full degrees.
The indoor unit of the ZTL Series is said to be the same as the luxury ZSX Series and standard ZS Series models popular in overseas markets, featuring a rounded, stylish Italian design from the design firm Tensa.
