New four-way ceiling cassette units have enhanced features and accessories

SUWANEE, Ga., November 5, 2007 - Mitsubishi Electric HVAC Advanced Products Division, Suwanee, Ga., has introduced its next generation of CITY MULTI indoor units. The new PLFY-NBMU and PLFY-NCMU indoor units boast new features and innovative accessories, providing better control over performance and comfort.

"The new CITY MULTI PLFY-NBMU four-way ceiling cassette has a wider air stream and individual vane control, which makes it adaptable to any room layout and especially useful for office cubicles and open work spaces," says Meredith Emmerich, manager of application support. "Additionally, the auto fan speed feature automatically adjusts the fan speed based on the difference in set temperature and room temperature."

The PLFY-NBMU unit, which is available in six different capacities, has dimensions of 33 inches by 33 inches and replaces the PLFY-NAMU model. The new unit's grille is white in color and features longer vanes, which allow for exceptional air distribution. In heating mode, the unit features auto wave air flow, allowing the vanes to independently cycle through horizontal and vertical positions for more even heat distribution.

Accessories for PFLY-NBMU unit include air outlet shutter plates, a high-efficiency filter element, a multi-function casement, a wireless signal receiver and the "i-see" Sensor Corner Panel Kit. The "i-see" kit is part of Mitsubishi Electric HVAC's radiation temperature technology. The sensor, built into the accessory corner panel, rotates 360 degrees to measure the infrared radiation generated from the surrounding wall and floor surfaces. The sensor computes radiant energy and then converts it into temperature value to create a comfortable environment near the floor, close to occupants.

The PLFY-NCMU four-way ceiling cassette is another extension of the PLFY product line. This unit is available in three capacities, has dimensions of 22 inches by 22 inches and is only 9¼ inches high. It features a new white grille, which easily mounts into a standard 2-foot by 2-foot ceiling grid. The unit also features three fan speeds, vane adjustment, including swing feature, and one 4-inch ventilation air connection.

Both the PLFY-NBMU and the PLFY-NCMU units are available for order now. For more information about the complete line of CITY MULTI systems, please visit www.mehvac.com.
