New ECONAVI heat pump

Going green and saving energy shouldn’t compromise on your comfortable lifestyle. That is why the inverter – with its exceptional energy-saving performances – has been introduced to our air conditioners.

 

At the same time, individuals also get to enjoy the Advanced+Plus e-ion Air Purifying System with the Patrol Sensor for cleaner air. Both advanced features have been designed to improve quality of life. With the same concerns in mind, Panasonic is introducing a new ECONAVI concept – an intelligent eco function with automatic detection which further reduces energy waste. This enables individuals to save energy easily and thus improve the environment. Imagine what millions of people around the world can change with ECONAVI. A more sustainable future is possible.

 

Introducing ECONAVI – a system which saves energy by reducing waste

The ECONAVI concept applies high precision Human Sensor and Control Program technologies to optimise air conditioner operation according to room conditions. How does it save energy? By using technology to detect areas in which energy is normally wasted and self-adjusting cooling power. Thus, it helps you to save energy efficiently with uninterrupted cooling, comfort and convenience.

Up to 30% energy saving on COOLING MODE*, 40% energy savings on HEATING MODE**

Accumulative energy consumption is saved up to 40% during stable operation for 1 hour.

 

One-touch ECONAVI reduces waste in three simple steps:

It examines
• Levels of activity
• Human presence
It assesses
• Changes in human location
• Changes in human activity
• Changes in human presence
and executes
• Adjusts airflow direction
• High activity: automatic adjustment of the set
• temperature
• Absence: saves energy


Sensor detection principle
Dual human activity sensor detects human activity level and directs airflow to occupied or high activity zone.

Coverage capabilities
ECONAVI dual sensor covers a wider area due to its improved area detection function.

Differentiating objects
ECONAVI’s sensor technology uses factors such as speed, frequency and temperature of every object to determine if it is human.

High-Precision Sensing

All objects emit infrared rays which, although invisible, can be detected as heat by ECONAVI’s sensor if it is within the detection zone. When an object moves within its detection zone, ECONAVI compares the object’s temperature with the room temperature to determine if it is human, and level of activity based on its movement.
The entire room is divided into 3 detection areas.
