Panasonic Makes a Splash with Innovative ECOi-W AQUA-Z DC Series for Commercial Hydronic Systems

Panasonic Heating & Cooling Solutions has unveiled a powerful new addition to its hydronic portfolio: the ECOi-W AQUA-Z DC Series. Designed to elevate the performance and flexibility of commercial hydronic systems, this innovative series boasts a range of features that cater to the evolving needs of modern buildings.

A Commitment to Efficiency and Sustainability

The ECOi-W AQUA-Z DC prioritizes both efficiency and environmental responsibility. It utilizes low Global Warming Potential (GWP) R32 refrigerant, significantly reducing its carbon footprint compared to units using R410A refrigerant. Additionally, its maximum SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) of 5.2 and SCOP (Seasonal Coefficient of Performance) of 4.0 translate to exceptional energy savings and lower operating costs.

Powerhouse Performance with Unmatched Flexibility

The ECOi-W AQUA-Z DC series offers a wide range of capacities, from 150 kW to 380 kW. It can even reach a staggering 3,040 kW in cascade configurations, making it suitable for a diverse range of commercial applications.

Flexibility is another key strength. The series comes in three chassis designs – bended coil and two multi-V chassis options – to accommodate various installation requirements. The H version features Fin & Tube coils with a reduced diameter of 7.2mm, achieving an impressive 85% reduction in refrigerant charge compared to standard models – a significant win for sustainability.

Reliability You Can Trust

For demanding environments, the ECOi-W AQUA-Z DC boasts a double circuit design with four scroll compressors. This ensures continuous operation and high flexibility, even if one circuit encounters an issue.

Quiet Operation, Maximum Comfort

Noise reduction is a priority for many commercial settings. The ECOi-W AQUA-Z DC comes in both standard and super low-noise versions. Super low noise models are equipped with compressor jackets for smaller units (150-170 kW) and both compressor boxes and jackets for larger units (190-380 kW), offering a maximum noise reduction of 5 dB(A) compared to standard models.

Smart Features for Enhanced Control

The ECOi-W AQUA-Z DC is equipped with intelligent control logic, enabling advanced management of the compressor envelope. It also features Smart Grid (SG) ready functionality, ensuring future-proofing for evolving energy management systems. Additionally, users can benefit from settable fan external static pressure, automatic addressing, and settable smart input/output contacts, allowing for granular control and customization of the system.

Eurovent certification guarantees the series meets stringent performance and quality standards, offering peace of mind for building owners and operators.

A Perfect Match for the New V8 Indoor Units

The ECOi-W AQUA-Z DC series seamlessly integrates with the new V8 indoor unit range, further enhancing performance and user experience. The V8 units boast a wide capacity range, compatibility with both R32 and R410A refrigerants, and new features like slim duct series for discreet installation, modern wall-mounted unit design, and improved control options.

A Breath of Fresh Air for Commercial Buildings

The ECOi-W AQUA-Z DC series represents a significant leap forward in commercial hydronic technology. Its focus on efficiency, flexibility, reliability, and smart features makes it the ideal choice for building owners and operators seeking high-performance, sustainable, and user-friendly climate control solutions. With its innovative design and commitment to the future, the ECOi-W AQUA-Z DC is poised to make a splash in the commercial HVAC market.
