– In an effort to further enhance brand image and expand market share, the ZR series with wireless LAN connectivity will also be mass-produced shortly thereafter.

TOKYO, June 10, 2022 – (JCN Newswire) – Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems, Ltd. (MHI Thermal Systems), a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries group company, will include wireless LAN connectivity as standard on its ZSX and ZS series of residential room air conditioners for the European market.
Mass production will start in June. The company also plans to add wireless connectivity to its ZR series for the European market, with mass production expected to start soon after. By offering a wide range of products, including existing models, MHI Thermal Systems aims to provide consumers in the residential market with greater control in managing their energy consumption and energy costs.
MHI Thermal Systems previously offered wireless LAN connectivity as an option, but will now include the feature as standard for residential air conditioners. Users can control and monitor their air conditioner from a smartphone or tablet by downloading the dedicated Smart M-Air app. The app also offers other handy features such as the ability for users to check their electricity consumption and displaying energy consumption for better energy management. Notifications can be set up to let users know if they leave the house without turning off their AC, all of this can be managed through the app.
The new ZSX and ZS series currently include wireless interface control capabilities that meet exceptional energy efficiency receiving Europe’s highest seasonal energy rating (A+++). The units were designed by an Italian company, Tensa, based in Milan, Italy. The overall design and functionality of the units has been well received in the European market.
The ZSX series is equipped with motion sensors that detect human movement and automatically adjust the room temperature. When the system determines that no one is present in the room for a certain period of time, it automatically stops working to save energy. This will prevent the room from getting too hot or too cold and will maintain the room temperature accordingly. Both series include an operation mode that traps pollutants in a special anti-allergen filter that removes them with enzymes and urea, as well as high-power operation with powerful high-capacity airflow and a Eco operation mode for energy efficient operation.
In the future, MHI Thermal Systems will continue to offer optimal thermal solutions based on technology and individual consumer-oriented product development to provide flexibility and continuously meet overseas market demand.
