Panasonic splits with nanoe X air cleaning technology

UK: Panasonic is enhancing its range of air conditioners with the new wall-mounted TZ ZKE, featuring the company’s nanoe X air cleaning technology. 

The TZ is available in seven capacities from 2kW to 7kW on R32 and boast SEERs from 6.2 to 7.1. SCOPs are 4.1 to 4.6.

Units include Panasonic’s innovative nanoe X technology to inhibit five types of pollutants and allergens, including certain viruses and bacteria as well as odours. Nanoe X works independently from the heating and cooling operation when the unit is in fan mode.

The wall-mounted indoor units are compact, the five smallest units measuring 290mm high x 779mm wide x 209mm deep. The larger 6kW and 7.1kW units measure 295mm x 1040mm x 244mm.

The TZ features Panasonic’s Aerowings – two independent blades that concentrate airflow to cool a room down in the shortest time possible and which help distribute the air throughout the room evenly. It operates at noise levels down to just 20dB(A).

The air conditioner has built-in Wi-Fi and features advanced smart control and voice control. TZ is compatible with Panasonic Comfort Cloud app, which is designed to easily manage all system functions via a smart device.
