Hitachi Air Conditioning launches new S-Series premium wall units to combat airborne bacteria
As part of its continuing product development, Hitachi has brought out a new range of S-Series premium room air conditioning wall and outdoor units.
The S-Series wall splits achieve the highest level of energy efficiency in the European market with an SEER of 8.5 (A+++) and SCOP of 4.7 (A++). These are ideal for residential & light commercial applications.
The range uses vector control as an inverter operation system to enable gradual regulation of the motor rotation rate and electrical current. Hitachi’s redesigned scroll compressor has been improved to achieve both energy savings and stable high power operation in cooling or heating mode.
The new S-Series range provides constant heating capacity even at outdoor temperatures as low as -15°C. The outdoor unit’s heat exchanger is 150% bigger than the previous model, which contributes to a shorter defrost operation time.
For further seasonal efficiencies, the new S-Series is equipped with a motion ECO Sensor to reduce energy consumption and adjust airflow direction to maintain comfort levels in the room. Stainless materials are used for the interior of the indoor unit, such as the air duct, stainless louver and micro mesh filter, and ionised mist is generated to eliminate airborne bacteria, mould and pollen to achieve high air quality.
A new, stylish multifunctional remote controller with cross key buttons and large liquid crystal display is supplied as standard. Designed to meet the needs of the European market, it features ECO mode, weekly timer, Leave Home mode to maintain room temperatures at no lower than 10°C, power consumption display for homeowners to monitor and take control of their energy usage, and error code display in case of a malfunction so the problem can quickly be diagnosed.
