Toshiba updates the mini TouchScreen

UK: Toshiba Carrier UK has introduced a new version of its Mini TouchScreen air conditioning controller with a number of updated functions.

Originally developed for use with Toshiba air conditioning in hotels, the Mini Touchscreen room controller has an intuitive touch-sensitive interface that operates on the same principles as a high-end smartphone. It is designed to be easy to use for end users and quick and simple to install for contractors.

The latest version, Series 2, includes a full function seven-day timer, with the ability to programme up to eight events a day across the week, schedule on/off status, and incorporating mode and temperature settings to optimise both energy savings and indoor comfort. 

The updated unit also has a frost protection function that maintains a temperature above 8ºC.

The Mini TouchScreen uses the same two-wire connectivity as a standard wall controller, enabling it to be quickly installed without adding an external power supply on new projects and as an upgrade on existing systems.

The contemporary unit’s colour-way can be customised to match room décor, with 30 contrasting backgrounds available to create different moods or messages. Clients can also customise the interface with their own corporate images, colours and logos by uploading images via the unit’s built-in USB connection. 

The icons and functions displayed on the screen are determined during the installer set-up, according to the client’s preference. This feature overcomes a problem common to some traditional controllers in which all functions are visible but not all are accessible, leading to user frustration.
