Mitsubishi conjures the Wizard AHU

UK: Mitsubishi Electric has announced the launch of its new Wizard range of air handling units designed for the UK market.

With buildings accounting for around half of all UK greenhouse gas emissions, the Wizard is designed to meet or exceed European Ecodesign 2018 regulations, with a heat recovery efficiency of over 73% across the range.

The new Wizard is said to work with Mitsubishi Electric’s Mr Slim power inverter heat pump technology to deliver a cost and energy efficient system. It incorporates a thermal wheel and an integrated control system

Delivered as a packaged unit, the Wizard is available in seven sizes with an air volume range of between 0.83m³/s to 5.56m³/s. Each Wizard unit comes with a minimum of two outdoor units, which enables close temperature control and minimises cycling.

An extensive range of optional extras enable a system to exactly fit the required specifications for any given building or space. There is also the option to connect the Wizard to building energy management systems via Modbus and BACnet connections.
