Mr. Slim M-Series Exceeds 13 SEER Requirements
Monday, May 01, 2006
- Mitsubishi Electric HVAC Advanced Products Division, Suwanee,
Ga., recently unveiled its new Mr Slim® M-Series line of
INVERTER-driven cooling-only and heat pump products, which range
from 13 to 17 SEER, use R410A refrigerant and provide a variety of
outstanding features, all with no price increase to distributors,
according to Chuck Applebee, product manager.
"We're proud to offer one of the best family of products available to our customers," says Applebee. "Not only does the M-Series provide end users with lower energy cost operation and improve the air quality inside homes, but the M-Series' low sound ratings and powerful performance are unparalleled in the industry."
With sounds ratings as low as 22 decibels (dB(A)), lower than a whisper, the quiet operation of the M-Series is the result of a reduction in refrigerant noise and new unit design. The M-Series also offers a variety of control settings, giving each individual end user the flexibility to meet their desired temperature conditioning in all climate types. One degree Fahrenheit step temperature setting allows for more precise temperature control and improved comfort, while Powerful mode provides 15 minutes of extra high-powered cooling or heating to quickly bring rooms to the desired temperature.
The Econo Cool mode technology allows temperatures to be set two degrees higher without sacrificing comfort, resulting in a 20 percent decrease in energy costs. The DC Inverter-driven condenser fan motor offers 60 percent greater efficiency than an equivalent AC motor, providing more efficient operation and lowering energy usage.
"Over the years, our customers have told us specific product features they'd like to see in our Mr. Slim product line, for instance low ambient cooling down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit (outdoor temperatures), greater performance in a more compact unit and a sleek indoor unit design. We incorporated these features and more into our new product line-up. Each unit is packed with user-friendly features that both contractors and end users will appreciate," says Applebee.
The MS/MSY cooling-only and MSZ heat pump systems help improve indoor air quality through the use of two distinct features. An anti-allergy enzyme filter, using artificial blue enzyme catalyst on the filter filaments, captures harmful microbes, and reduces the harmful allergens, germs and bacteria. Environmentally sound and hybrid catechin pre-filters with fibers deeply infused with a bioflavonoid found in green tea have antiviral and antioxidant properties, helping to reduce odors and bacteria.
The new M-Series features optional control interfaces that allow the system to tie into the Mitsubishi Electric CITY MULTI® Controls Network (CMCN), providing a centrally controlled building comfort solution. A separate adaptor also connects the M-Series to the Mr.Slim P-Series type hardwired, wall-mounted controller.
