COMPACT AIR CONDITIONING

18 July 2008

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has launched a new wired controller for its KX6 compact VRF air conditioning system. The RC-E3 controller has been an established component in the KX4 system portfolio for some time, and is now available for the new KX6 range.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has launched a new wired controller for its KX6 compact VRF air conditioning system. The RC-E3 controller has been an established component in the KX4 system portfolio for some time, and is now available for the new KX6 range.

The new RC-E3 controller has been developed to be both installer and user-friendly. It requires only two wire installation (rather than three) and has a smart auto install feature. In use it allows the upper and lower limits of a zone temperature range to be set remotely, so that impatient users are unable to swing between extreme settings which would mean excessive heating or cooling. The system can be set up to either conceal these range restrictions from the user, or make them visible.

The controller has a weekly timer as standard, allowing one-week operation schedules to be registered. Users can specify up to four times a day to start or stop the air conditioner. The RC-E3 stores operation data when an error occurs and displays it on the LED. It also records cumulative operation hours of the system since commissioning. The temperature sensor is housed in the top section of the unit, improving its sensitivity and allowing more finely controlled air conditioning.

MHI’s KX6 compact outdoor unit is massively reduced in size from the outgoing KX4. Each of the 4, 5, and 6hp (12, 14, and 16 kW) outdoor units requires only one single side fan. They are available in single- or 3-phase, all with dimensions of just
970w x 370d x 845h mm.

Mitsubishi Heavy’s UK Sales Manager David Lettis comments, “The pace of development of controls technology can be bewildering, but this new VRF controller achieves the holy grail of greater functionality whilst being easier to install and easier to use”.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is one of the largest of the 200 or so independent companies within the Mitsubishi community. Today, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd has 32,500 employees and annual sales of over £20 billion, ranging from air conditioning to aerospace, and from power systems to shipbuilding. In the UK,

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries air conditioners are available through distributors HRP Ltd, 3D Air Sales Ltd and FM Air Conditioning Ltd. For further information, see www.mhie.com.
