Suwanee, Ga. -
Mitsubishi Electric HVAC Advanced Products Division, Suwanee, Ga.,
has unveiled its new Mr. Slim® P-Series line of
cooling-only and heat pump systems for the commercial and large
residential markets, with a range of 6,000 to 45,000 Btu/h, the
units are 13+ SEER and use R410A refrigerant, according to Chuck
Applebee, product manager.
"Mitsubishi Electric's industry-leading, variable-speed technology in the P-Series inverter-driven compressor creates a consistent indoor climate, and its slow running speed allows energy to be used more effectively," says Applebee. "As a result, end users will be able to shave dollars off their utility bills without having to sacrifice comfort."
The P-Series inverter-driven compressor provides several cost-saving benefits. Due to accelerated cooling and heating performance, the temperature set-point can be reached quicker. Because of the inverter's variable-speed performance, a comfortable indoor climate can be maintained through smooth, modulated frequency. Finally, thanks to a ramping start-up, in rush and power spikes are eliminated and with a long, slow running speed, energy is used more effectively.
There are a variety of indoor units to meet the consumer's needs and the same indoor units are used with different outdoor units for heat pump and air-conditioning systems for easier planning and system configuration.
The design of the P-Series provides reduced outdoor unit sound level by four to eight dB(A). The units are smaller thanks to R410A and inverter technology, and use smaller refrigerant line diameters. Additionally, a new anti-corrosion model is available for coastal applications, providing protection in seacoast environments and a longer life span of the unit. The P-Series also offers faster and easier service with the PAR-21MAA remote controller. The controller displays fault codes for both indoor and outdoor units, and if programmed, the phone number of the service contractor and critical unit operating data for the service technician also is displayed.
"The new P-Series incorporates many of the suggestions that our customers have made to us over the years," says Applebee. "Each unit is designed to be installed and operated as easily as possible, with features that benefit both contractors and end users."
The low-ambient operation of the P-Series also meets requirements for year-round cooling in applications such as telecomm rooms and computer centers and allows inverter models to perform well in cooling mode even when the outdoor temperature is as low as zero degrees Fahrenheit.
The new P-Series features optional control interfaces that allow the system to tie into the Mitsubishi Electric CITY MULTI Controls Network (CMCN), providing a centralized control building comfort solution. It also interfaces with the Lossnay PZ-41SLB-E controller for increased ventilation control.
