Panasonic Heating & Air Conditioning Group introduced the latest entry in the ECOi EX ™ Series, the new 460 volt unit, designed for commercial use. New to the series is the 2-way ECOi VRF Heat Recovery system, which the company says increases heating output and lowers installation costs. It also features ECONAVI™ (Human Detection Technology). Through the detection of human activity, the ECONAVI smart technology will automatically regulate the temperature setting for optimal operation. It is able to monitor human location, movements, and absence. It then automatically adjusts cooling power to save energy efficiently with uninterrupted comfort. Panasonic’s ECOi is suitable for restaurants, data centers, educational facilities, and other commercial applications.

The new heat recovery system also features dual inverter- twin rotary compressors and an IEER rating of up to 28.5 and a SCHE rating up to 30.2. The heat recovery system offers added flexibility of simultaneous heating and cooling from one refrigerant pipe network. This means that the 460 volt ECOi system can provide heating and/or cooling to different zones in the same building at the same time.
