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.

“Mitsubishi 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 environment.”

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.
