In bid to constantly remain the home appliance brand of choice among Nigerian consumers, Panasonic has unveiled its new range of room air conditioners, which comes with automatic voltage switcher system (AVS) to protect important components such as compressor from severe voltage fluctuation.
According to the manufacturers of the product, the innovation was introduced to tackle the region’s key challenge of voltage fluctuation, air purification and energy saving. New nanoe-G will enable to deactivate 99 per cent of bacteria and virus attached to filter while intelligent EcoNavi sensor will save up 35 per cent energy without sacrificing the comfort level.
Speaking at the unveiling of the brand in Lagos recently, the Promoter, Panaserv Nigeria Limited, franchise owners of Panasonic in Nigeria, Mr. Suraj Rupani, said the new Econavi room air conditioners with AVS feature not only enables the air conditioner to efficiently operate on a wider voltage range of 185V-260V but also prevents the compressor from being damaged by switching it off when there is a surge or drop in voltage.
“If the compressor is switched off, the airflow in the room is continued. The cooling operation automatically restarts when the voltage returns to inside of 185V to 260V.” The feature, according to him, helps in saving space and maintaining the room décor as there is no need to install an external voltage tripper.
