Reliability

Panasonic designs its products to be user friendly so
our customers can use them for a long time with
confidence.We put our products through every test
before we ship them so they are of the highest quality and durability.

Blue Fin Condenser

The condenser fins are specially blue-coated to enhance its durability.
These specially coated layers serve as protection against corrosion from air, water and other corrosive.

Durability Tests

Panasonic puts their high quality air conditioners through over 200 strict tests before they get delivered to customers.

Durability

Long-term Durability Test

Long-term Durability Test

The air conditioner's main mission is to provide a level of durability that allows it to operate stably for years. In order to achieve this, we conduct an accelerated test for 10,000 hours of continuous operation. The results of this test, which is conducted under conditions that are much more severe than actual operating conditions, prove the rugged strength of Panasonic air conditioners.

Long-term Durability Test

Compressor Disassembly Test

After a test with 10,000 hours of continuous operation, we remove the compressor from a randomly selected outdoor unit, disassemble it, then examine the internal mechanisms and parts for possible failure. Panasonic air conditioners continue to provide their designed performance for many years even after prolonged operation under harsh conditions.

Operating Test in Harsh Conditions

Operating Test in Harsh Conditions

In addition to normal operating conditions, an operating durability test is conducted in a high-temperature, high humidity test chamber at a temperature of 55 ºC. For use in cold climates, the test is also conducted in a low temperature test chamber at -20 ºC. This test assures that the oil inside the compressor will not freeze during use and interrupt operation.


Waterproof Test

Waterproof Test

The outdoor unit, which is subject to rain and wind, is provided with IPX4 waterproof compliance. Contact sections on printed circuit boards are also resin-potted to prevent adverse effects caused by an unlikely exposure to droplets of water.

Shock Resistance

Warehouse Storage Test

Warehouse Storage Test

During distribution, products may be subjected to extended warehouse storage under unfavourable conditions. To simulate these conditions, we place a weight equal to a stack of five product packages on top of the test package, and leave it in that condition in a room at a temperature of 27 ºC and a humidity level of 85%. Then, the product is checked for proper operation.

Drop Test

Even with the large impacts that may occur due to improper handling during transportation, the product packaging has been strengthened to prevent it from being damaged. In addition to conventional vertical dropping, more severe conditions in which the sides, edges, or corners hit the ground first are tested to ensure that the product's rigidity and shock-absorbing materials prevent damage.

Vibration Test

Preventing damage that would hinder the product's performance due to vibration during transportation is another major role of the packaging. A test is conducted to confirm that the product operates properly even after applying vibrations in both horizontal and vertical directions.

Comfort

Noise Test

Noise Test

The operating noise of the indoor and outdoor units is measured in an echo-free chamber. The noise test verifies that the operating noise is low enough so that the product operation will not disturb daily activities including conversations and sleep.

Amenity Test

Amenity Test

An actual air conditioner is operated in a test room that simulates an ordinary living room. Conditions such as the amount of sunlight entering the room from outside are changed while measuring a variety of parameters, such as cooling speed, cooling efficiency, and temperature and humidity differences throughout the room.

EMC Test

EMC Test (Electromagnetic Compatibilly)

The operating noise of the indoor and outdoor units is measured in an echo-free chamber. The noise test verifies that the operating noise is low enough so that the product operation will not disturb daily activities including conversations and sleep.



Remote Control Dropping Test

Remote Control Dropping Test

Because the remote control is the main interface between people and the air conditioner, it is naturally subjected to frequent impacts - such as drops and bumps - when it is passed from person to person during normal operation. Panasonic drops the remote control from a height of 1.5 metres at various angles to ensure that no problems in basic performance will result from accidental dropping.

International Standard Quality

Reliable Parts with Major Standards Approval

Reliable Parts with Major Standards Approval

Panasonic air conditioners comply with all of the major standards that maintain high reliability in the countries and regions where they are marketed. To ensure this, we conduct a variety of tests to examine the quality of materials used in parts. The strength of the resin material used in the propeller fan is confirmed by the tension test.

RoHS/REACH Compliant Parts

RoHS/REACH Compliant Parts

All parts and materials comply with RoHS/REACH, Europe's world-leading environmental regulations. Stringent inspections of more than 100 materials are conducted to ensure that no hazardous substances are included during parts development.

Sophisticated Production Process

Sophisticated Production Process

The air conditioner production line uses advanced, state-of-the-art factory automation technologies to produce products with higher reliability. Products are efficiently manufactured with high and uniform quality.



Eco Activities

Panasonic has set up “eco ideas” factories around the globe. While developing and manufacturing energy-saving products using original environmental technologies, these factories reduce CO2 emissions from manufacturing processes and conduct regional-based environmental communication activities to contribute to both the global environment and the local communities in which they serve.
