We developed and manufactured our new range of ACs, keeping the evolving needs of our consumers in mind. The new line-up of ACs, comprising of India’s first Matter-enabled RACs will not only provide inter-operability but, is simple to use, reliable and secure. By seamlessly connecting with other Matter-certified devices and platforms, they will facilitate a smarter and more efficient use of energy, optimizing comfort while minimizing environmental impact.

Mr. Abhishek Verma, Business Head, Air Conditioners Group, PMIN, PLSIND said, “At Panasonic, Air Conditioners are an important growth engine for our consumer durables division and in this competitive market, we consistently innovate in line with changing consumer preferences. From Indoor Air Quality, energy conservation, connectivity to further building on the convenience aspect, we have now integrated Matter (in our RACs) with our Miraie platform to redefine the smart home experience. Matter provides inter-operability and is simple to use, reliable and secure. In short, a Panasonic Air Conditioner equipped with Matter technology is easily managed using the Miraie platform or, any other Matter- compatible platform.

We are expecting a robust demand for ACs this season and are hoping to grow by 40% compared to last AC season.”

With an expertise of over 65 years in developing Air Conditioners, Panasonic’s new range of ACs are tech-enabled and are designed to deliver Cooling, Quality (reliability) and a Connected experience to redefine smart living.

Cooling performance is ensured through technologies such as Jetstream, Converti7 (7 different cooling performance modes) Aerowings and 4-Way Inflow to deliver higher Cubic Feet per Minute – the volume of air circulated in a minute by an AC (higher CFM indicates better cooling). This coupled with Panasonic’s nanoe™X and nanoeTMG technologies, helps ensure a healthy indoor AQI by eliminating PM 2.5 particulate matter, dust particles, bacteria, and viruses.
Quality and Reliability are guaranteed through technologies such as inverter, ECOTOUGH, ShieldBlu+, ECONAVI (for energy optimisation), AG Clean+, Crystal Clean to name a few.
Connectivity for smart living comes with technologies such as Matter -an open-source connectivity standard that enables seamless interoperability across smart devices, powered by Miraie – Panasonic’s connected living platform and True AI (Artificial Intelligence – automatically adjusts the AC settings/parameters for comfort cooling). Delivering on its ‘Make in India’ commitment, all Panasonic ACs are manufactured at our Technopark plant in Haryana.
