Features
    For over 50 years, Mitsubishi has remained at the forefront of the mini split industry thanks to their dedication to providing efficient, user-friendly comfort solutions. This is a three zone mini split system designed to give you individual control over the temperature in multiple rooms. An efficient MXZ-8C48NA outdoor condenser, built with advanced technology, is combined with powerful PLA-A ceiling cassette indoor units and three wireless remote controllers for the perfect marriage of convenience and comfort. With multiple operating modes, multiple fan speeds, and multiple airflow directions, this is a system that fits the needs of nearly any home.
  • Precision Temperature Control Technology
  • The MXZ-8C48NA outdoor condenser is equipped with inverter technology and an electronic linear expansion valve. These components improve temperature accuracy and system efficiency through precise adjustments of both compressor speed and refrigerant flow.
  • Hot-Start
  • In heating mode, Mitsubishi's hot start technology prevents cold drafts by stalling fan operation while the heat exchanger is warming up.
  • Dehumidification
  • When the indoor unit runs in dry mode, the coil's temperature stays just below the dew point of the return air, removing unwanted moisture. This improves your comfort and reduces both mold growth and the chance of property damage in the conditioned space.
  • Vane Control
  • Optimal air flow can be achieved with the PLA-A ceiling cassette units thanks to the vane control option. This function provides access to five different horizontal vane positions, an auto mode, and a swing mode.
  • Condensate Removal System
  • The included ceiling cassette indoor units each contain an internal drain mechanism capable of lifting condensate 33-7/16". This simplifies installation and prevents condensate overflow, which can damage or destroy your property.
  • Advanced Remote Controller
  • The MHK1 remote controller kits have dual set point control and multiple scheduling options. They learn how quickly your zones are cooled and heated and adjust scheduled operations so that the zones are always the right temperature at the right time.
  • Inconspicuous Design
  • If you are looking for unobtrusive zoned comfort, this system is right for you. The only visible portion of the indoor units are the 3' x 3' grilles, which clocks in at a slender depth of 1-3/8".
  • Recommended line set sizes for indoor unit connectivity:
  • PLA-A12BA6-NG: 1/4" x 1/2" Line Set (Qty 2)
  • PLA-A18BA6-NG: 1/4" x 1/2" Line Set
  • A branch box with a 3/8" x 5/8" line set connection is also required. Additional branch boxes and line sets may be required based on your configuration.
  • Product Includes
    • (1) Mitsubishi - 48k BTU - M-Series Outdoor Condenser - For 2-8 Zones (MXZ-8C48NA)
    • (1) Mitsubishi - 18k BTU - P-Series Ceiling Cassette - For Multi or Single-Zone - Grille Sold Separately (PLA-A18BA6-NG)
    • (2) Mitsubishi - 12k BTU - P-Series Ceiling Cassette - For Multi or Single-Zone - Grille Sold Separately (PLA-A12BA6-NG)
    • (3) Mitsubishi PLP-40EAEU Ceiling Cassette Grille For Mitsubishi PLA-EA Mini Split Units (PLP-40EAEU)
    • (3) Mitsubishi RedLINK - Wireless Remote Controller Kit - Programmable - Wall Mounted (MHK1)
    Product Note
    This product requires the following accessories for installation:

    • Line Set - This double insulated tubing transfers refrigerant efficiently between your outdoor condenser and indoor units.
    • Drain Tubing - Drain tubing facilitates the reliable and effective removal of condensate from your system. It connects your indoor units to drain locations of your choosing. We recommend locally purchased PVC hard pipe for the condensate drain on cassette and concealed duct units.
    • Disconnect Box & Electrical Whip Kit - The Disconnect Box & Whip Kit provides a safe and simple way to connect your outdoor condenser to your fuse box.
    • Connecting Wire - This durable, insulated wire provides power to your indoor units from your outdoor condenser.
    • Branch Box - A Mitsubishi branch box is required to connect the line sets from your indoor units to the outdoor condenser.
    • Base Pan Heater - The base pan heater prevents ice from building up on the outdoor unit. Excessive ice build will lead to performance issues and could damage your unit.
    • Outdoor Condenser Plastic Pad or Wall Bracket - We recommend outdoor condensers should not be placed directly on the ground. An outdoor condenser pad or wall bracket will provide a stable way to mount your condenser free from obstructions and debris.
    Adding these accessories to your order will provide a complete, ready-to-install mini split system. All Mini Split Systems require one Primary Mini Split Installation Kit. You may also require one or more Secondary Installation Kits if you have a Multi-Zone system. You will need a Secondary Installation Kit for each additional indoor unit.

Can these systems can be controlled by the Nest learning thermostat?
Jeff 
from New York 
February 15, 2017
Answer
Mitsubishi mini splits can be controlled with a Nest or any other standard thermostat, but you will need one thermostat for each indoor unit you wish to control. You will also need a thermostat interface, PAC-US444CN-1, and a transformer, 90-T40M3, for each indoor unit.
