Inverter Performance –
in Power and Comfort
Panasonic is harnessing its industry-leading technologies to make life more comfortable.
With the slogan "Technologies that deliver new levels of comfort,"
the company is working to develop new, high-performance inverter air conditioners.
Models with PFC (power-factor corrector) circuitry reduce electrical loss from the power source,
thus increasing maximum power input.
This naturally increases the maximum air conditioner output,
so you enjoy more comfort.
WHAT'S AN INVERTER?
An inverter is a type of power conversion circuit that electronically regulates
the voltage, current, and frequency of a device. In an inverter air conditioner,
this circuit controls the revolutions of the
compressor — and hence the air
conditioner's output. Raising the frequency
increases the output, lowering the
frequency reduces it. In this way, inverter
air conditioners provide much finer
temperature control than non-inverter
