Continuous Operation Simulation.
Long-term Durability Test
The air conditioner’s main mission is to provide a level of durability that ensures stable operation for many years. In order to achieve this, we conduct a long-term continuous operation test. 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.
Compressor Reliability Test
After the continuous operation test, we remove the compressor from a selected outdoor unit, disassemble it, then examine the internal mechanisms and parts for possible failure and durability. Panasonic air conditioners continue to provide their designed performance for many years even after prolonged operation under harsh conditions.
When Dropped onto Sides, Edges, or Corners.
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.
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.
The outdoor unit, which is subject to rain and wind, is provided with IPX4 waterproof compliance. Potential problems are checked by tests such as showering the unit for a predetermined amount of time. Contact sections on printed circuit boards are also resin-potted to prevent adverse effects caused by an unlikely exposure to droplets of water.
Warehouse Stacking Test
During distribution, products may be subjected to extended warehouse storage under unfavorable 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°C and a humidity level of 85%. After undergoing this simulation test, the product is checked for proper operation. *
