Mitsubishi Electric Cooling and Heating Solutions will incorporate Honeywell’s RedLink wireless HVAC system into its line of split-ductless and ducted heat pumps.
With RedLink, 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 system operates
with a portable controller that allows users to control the climate in up to 16
zones in their home wherever they happen to be. According to Mitsubishi
representatives, the wall-mounted controller will look almost identical to
traditional wall-mounted thermostats to which customers in the U.S. market are
accustomed, with backlit displays and intuitive operational functions.
Electric is excited to begin this journey with Honeywell,” said Bill Rau, senior vice president and general
manager of Mitsubishi Electric Cooling and Heating Solutions. “The
RedLink-enabled system personifies our commitment to providing consumers with
the smartest way to individualize and perfect the comfort of their indoor
RedLink will be available in controllers for
Mitsubishi Electric’s P-Series units of split-ductless and ducted heat pumps in
March, with Mitsubishi Electric’s residential M-Series units featuring the
wireless HVAC technology at a later date.
