LAS VEGAS - Mitsubishi Electric Cooling and Heating
Solutions announced at the AHR Expo that it will incorporate Honeywell’s
RedLINK wireless HVAC protocol into Mitsubishi Electric’s line of
split-ductless and ducted heat pumps. The RedLINK-enabled split-ductless system
is designed to maximize comfort and reduce energy costs.
“Mitsubishi Electric is excited to begin this journey with
Honeywell. The RedLink-enabled system personifies our commitment to providing
consumers with the smartest way to individualize and perfect the comfort of their
indoor environment,” said Bill Rau, senior vice president and general manager,
Mitsubishi Electric Cooling and Heating Solutions.
With RedLink technology, a wall-mounted wireless remote
controller communicates through radio frequency, meaning that the wireless
controller can be placed in a different room than the indoor units and that no
wires need to be run through the walls. The wall-mounted controller will look
almost identical to traditional wall-mounted thermostats to which customers in
the U.S. market are accustomed, with easy-to-read backlit displays and
intuitive operational functions.
