Panasonic ECONAVI Race 2013

Here at A Winsome Life, we are strongly supportive of companies that aims to be eco-friendly and in this Blog Post, we will be sharing with you how Panasonic is on its way to becoming even more eco-friendly with its latest development, the ECONAVI Intelligent Eco Sensors.

We were invited to the media conference for the Panasonic ECONAVI Race that took place at the Singapore Expo two days ago and we had the opportunity to look at some of the latest developments that Panasonic is launching. One such development is the ECONAVI Intelligent Eco Sensors that helps to protect the global environment by providing an effective energy saving solution that doesn’t place a burden on the user.

We’re pretty sure everyone owns a refrigerator, a washing machine, and an air-conditioner at home, but have we ever wondered if they are environmentally-friendly or energy-efficient? Now, maybe being environmentally-friendly ain’t much of a concern for you but it matters a lot if you’re footing the bill for your monthly utilities.

Now, let’s talk about water consumption at home. At home, water is mainly used for cooking, washing and bathing. However, do you know that the washing machine uses a significant amount of water per wash? In fact, some washing machines may use more than 150L of water per washing cycle! To conserve both water and electricity, here’s how the Panasonic ECONAVI Intelligent Eco Sensors work for the washing machine.

In most conventional washing machines, the amount of water and time used for each washing cycle is more or less fixed. However, with the Panasonic ECONAVI Intelligent Eco Sensors, the load sensor will determine how much water should be used based on the washing load and vary the amount of water accordingly. This would help to save water as less water is used for lighter loads, unlike the conventional washing machines where the amount of water used is fixed irregardless of loads. Concurrently, the water temperature sensor will detect the temperature of the water and selects the optimum operation time. This certainly will help to prevent wastage of time that could otherwise be used for drying clothes.

The ECONAVI detects water temperature and wash load, and automatically provides optimum energy saving operation.

While you might think that the Panasonic ECONAVI Intelligent Eco Sensors apply only to the washing machine, this certainly isn’t the case. Panasonic has also implemented the Panasonic ECONAVI Intelligent Eco Sensors for their refrigerators and air-conditioners as well.

The refrigerator is probably the 2nd most power-consuming home appliance as it operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to keep food fresh for consumption. Hence, it is imperative that you buy a refrigerator that is energy-efficient.

Here is how the the Panasonic ECONAVI Intelligent Eco Sensors for refrigerators can help save you dollars and cents on your utilities bill.

ECONAVI uses a door sensor and lighting sensor to detect the family’s lifestyle patterns. Then it will learn and predict when the doors are often opened, and also detect room brightness, letting the refrigerator to operate at the optimum power adapting to the lifestyle patterns of any family. This way, the ECONAVI Intelligent Eco Sensors automatically detects and cuts excessive cooling for maximum power saving.

As we have mentioned, Panasonic has also implemented the ECONAVI Intelligent Eco Sensors in their air-conditioners and it works in a similar way as the refrigerators. Now, choosing the right air-conditioner is important because it is probably the largest contributing factor to your utilities bill.

Panasonic’s air-conditioner which has the ECONAVI Intelligent Eco Sensors comes with 2 sensors, the human activity sensor and the sunlight sensor.

The human activity sensor have 3 types of detection functions. The first type of detection is an area search where it detects changes in human movements and reduces the waste of cooling unoccupied area of the room. The second type of detection is activity detection where it detects changes in activity levels and reduces the waste of cooling with unnecessary power. Lastly, the third type of detection detects human absence in the room and reduces the waste of cooling an empty room.

The sunlight sensor detects changes in sunlight intensity in the room and judges whether it is sunny, cloudy, or night. This helps to reduce the waste of cooling under less sunlight conditions as the air-conditioner will determine that less cooling power is required.
