Mitsubishi Electric Introduces Updated 2x2 Ceiling Cassette (PLFY-P)

SUWANEE, Georgia, April 17, 2018Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc.'s Cooling & Heating Division (Mitsubishi Electric), a leading manufacturer of Zoned Comfort Solutions and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) cooling and heating systems, introduces an updated 2x2 Four-Way Ceiling Cassette (PLFY-P) as part of the CITY MULTI® product lineup.

The new PLFY-P Ceiling Cassette offers a sleek, square-edge design that fits into the same 2’ x 2’ dimensions as many standard ceiling tiles. The four vanes allow air to flow in multiple directions for maximum comfort.

The PLFY-P is available with an optional feature - the 3D i-see Sensor - which continuously scans the room for occupancy and makes adjustments to maintain comfort. The sensor intelligently monitors the thermal profile of a space; automatically identifying when a person enters and their heat signature is detected. It can distinguish temperature levels between humans and other heat signatures, such as animals. When a room, such as a conference room, hotel room or classroom, is unoccupied, the sensor automatically adjusts the temperature levels, or switches to an energy efficiency mode.

“The PLFY-P is special in the way it fits so well into standard ceiling tiles, potentially reducing labor time and costs for proper installation,” says Joe Bush, director of product planning - commercial, Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc.’s Cooling & Heating Division. “We are also enthusiastic about the inclusion of the 3D i-see Sensor and its ability to reduce energy waste by performing hundreds of scans and continuously monitoring a space’s temperature. Building owners are increasingly conscious of energy efficiency, and we’re glad to be able to provide a technology that contributes to their efficiency goals.”

The 2’ x 2’ size of the PLFY-P ceiling cassette makes installation efficient and simple. It is available in capacities ranging from 5,000 to 18,000 Btu/h. Additional features include:

  • Ventilation air intake support
  • 3D turbo fan to increase airflow
  • Four fan speed settings, including auto-fan
  • Corner-pocket design for simplified installation
  • Built-in condensate lift mechanism designed to provide up to 19-11/16” of lift
  • Improved installation features, energy saving features and occupancy detection when used with the PAR-32MAA-J controller (purchased separately)
