Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2011: Mitsubishi Electric to Employ Honeywell's RedLINK Wireless Technology
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.
