The best heat pump WiFi controller on the market has just got even better! The MAC-568IF-E WiFi interface has now been redesigned and improved, and its available to customers now.
By far the best thing about this new model, is that instead of only being able to connect with the WPS (button on the router that means you don’t have to input a password) it can also be connected by Access point mode pairing; typing the SSID into your smart phone or tablet. In previous installations it has been troublesome with some of the wireless routers which customers have had. Either the WPS button isn’t present at all on the router, or it has to be enabled through the routers software on the PC.
Overview of Improvements
- Easier to read the LED’s when it is connecting to the wireless router
- A better way of attaching itself to the indoor heat pump - clip on
- Faster syncing with the router
- A quick reference set up guide
- 2 ways of connecting to the router
At the end of the day, we all just want it to connect easily and quickly, and I think the new model has overcome a couple of hurdles which its predecessor had.
And as a last resort, there is a Mitsubishi Electric number to call with a dedicated WiFi connection help team to assist with the connection.
This WiFi unit can be used for Mitsubishi high wall heat pumps, floor consoles, and ducted air conditioning units.
