Panasonic and Schneider Electric Cooperating

handshakePanasonic and Schneider Electric are partnering on commercial building HVAC platforms that provides energy managers and building owners with high levels of control. The companies have created a direct serial communications between Panasonics variable refrigerant flow (VRF) based HVAC systems and Schneider-Electric’s building management platforms via ZigBee wireless communications.

The integration, the companies say, enables insight into HVAC equipment, lighting, security, power and electrical distribution via a single interface. The firms say that the output of the integration can drive savings and increase efficiency. The wireless element of the system enables simple installation that requires no changes to infrastructure. A wired option also is available, according to the press release.

Last year, Panasonic introduced the HIT N330 photovoltaic module. The company said that the module offers 19.7 percent module level efficiency and a nominal power out of 330 watts.
