From the end of January 2016, Fujitsu General began releasing 8 models of nocria ZS series and 7 models of nocria GS series room air conditioners (RACs). The new models offer high performance and function in a new compact size only 68.6 cm wide.
The two new series both feature a new compact shape only 68.6 cm wide (compared to 79.8 cm for previous models in the corresponding class) by optimizing the interior structure of the indoor units. As a result, it is now possible to install the indoor unit on a wall with a small surface area due to a large window, or in a room where large decorative curtain poles are installed. The compact design and roundish form create a more spacious feel in the room.
ZS series models realize energy savings and heating capacity comparable to Fujitsu General’s highest-end models thanks to a re-designed interior indoor unit structure, including the electrical components, as well as improved compressor efficiency. They also incorporate a plasma air purifying unit that uses an electric dust collection system to trap PM 2.5 fine particulate matter, pollen, and other pollutants. An automatic filter cleaning function performs regular cleaning to prevent energy-saving performance from dropping. The air purifying unit can therefore maintain powerful dust collection capability and keep the room air clean without the need to replace the filters. Additionally, a person sensor function detects when people are absent and adjusts operation to save electricity accordingly.
