Heat Pump Hot Water
Introducing the Explorer System
Introducing the Explorer System
This productive and cost-effective solution produces domestic hot water using renewable, clean and free calories contained in ambient air. It is an ideal energy source to heat water, performing even in nighttime conditions, as well as in hail or rain.
HOW DOES IT WORK
The heat pump water heater uses the operational principle of a heat pump, by absorbing calories in outdoor air and using this energy to ensure water heating.
The fan 1 inhales ambient air transfering its energy to the refrigerant gas 2. This gas is steadily heated by compression 3, and transforms into fluid. In the condenser 4, the fluid transfers its accumulated heat to water in the tank. As the fluid gets colder, its transforms back into gas through the expansion valve 5. The electric back-up heating 6 starts only when required during insufficient heat pump working conditions.
ANTI-CORROSION PROTECTION WITH ATLANTIC PATENTED TECHNOLOGIES
Maximum protection of the tank
The Anti-Corrosion Integrated system (ACI hybrid) provides maximum protection to the tank. The titanium anode located at the center of the appliance is driven by an electronic PCB board that produces a milivoltage electric current, providing the tank with lifetime protection, replacing magnesium anode.
State-of-the-art technology for the best long-lasting service
Thanks to Steatite technology and its ceramic heating element, Explorer is well adapted to aggressive, highly mineralised and desalinated water. Ceramic heating element is protected by an enamelled steel sleeve, which grants a large heat exchange surface and reduces scale deposits and heating noise. Therefore, Steatite technology ensures the heating element’s and tank’s prolonged lifecycle.
With Explorer’s new innovative smart functions, you can combine your lifestyle with daily energy savings!
Due to Smart Control, Explorer perfectly integrates into your life, learning your habits from one week to another and memorizing them, to provide you with everyday comfort anticipating your needs, along with energy savings optimization.
When connected to a boiler system, Explorer activates its Smart Energy function, which helps to choose the right energy source (boiler or heat pump) at the right moment, considering the air and water temperature, by calculating its energy consumption. Therefore, Smart Energy grants the most efficient and economical performance of Explorer connected to a boiler system.
combined with intuitive controls, user-friendliness and high efficiency
Explorer benefits from the best Atlantic patented technologies to offer the most reliable water heating solution, combining the highest tank protection and heat pump performance, with its wide temperature range of use (-5 to +43°C).
easy to install thanks to adjustable air inlet and outlet, Explorer is a silent and user-friendly solution with its intuitive control panel and different operating modes.
as a renewable energy solution, Explorer is a real energy-saving device. It allows up to 75% of energy savings*, thanks to its heat pump operation principle, innovative functions and compatibility with solar (photovoltaic or solar panel) and boiler system (built-in coil).
Built-in programming function allows adjusting energy consumption to daily needs, as well as different modes selection and solar or boiler support activation. High visibility display shows everyday energy consumption in curves, for better energy savings and easier control.

More energy savings in your photovoltaic
installation with the Explorer
By connecting Explorer with a photovoltaic installation, you combine two green energies to achieve optimum energy savings in water heating and in the rest of the electric equipment in your home.
Combined with a photovoltaic installation, Explorer gives you a free energy storage, as photovoltaic panels collect free solar energy and send it to Explorer for storage and use.
Therefore, solar and heat pump energies allow you heating water at no cost, as well as supplying free energy to domestic appliances, no matter the weather.
Solar energy is collected by the photovoltaic panels and sent to the inverter to adapt to the housing global appliances installation 1. Electricity is then sent to the working domestic appliances or to the power grid 2. Explorer is working on power grid supply (normal electricity supply) 3.
Suitable for all installations (low ceiling, corners..)
