Can this also work to replace the CZ-TACG1?
Thanks!

I believe it will also work for CZ-TACG1. Dominik’s repo also supports it, the correct wiring to the AC connector needs to to arranged of course. Michel what’s the status on stock and new batches? ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but what if your Panasonic AC unit has both the DNSK-P11 Wifi Module installed AND the CN-CNT connector on the PCB ? I see this in the HZ35XKE and the NZ35VKE units I’m currently looking at. Heck they also have the CN-WLAN connector … I think I’d be looking for Option 5 (or possible Option 3 even if it doesn’t make so much sense :D). Is there a space BOTH for the DNSK-P11 and your ESPHome module inside of the above mentioned AC units ? Thanks :).

Thank you for your reply, Michel. Therefore, in this case, what option would you reccomend ๐Ÿ™‚ ?

Perfect, thanks. Yes, I was of course looking to buy the enclosure as well :). Hope that helps support your project ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have a Panasonic TZ series: https://www.logicool-ac.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/CS-TZ-WKEW-Service-Manual.pdf
The Wifi is built in, and it has the reference ACXA73-28520 and connected to CN-WLAN.

I do see in the PDF it has a CN-CNT port. However I have no clue if this is compatible, and if I should remove the existing wifi module?

Found input from a Z series, similar idea: https://github.com/DomiStyle/esphome-panasonic-ac/issues/32

So indeed seems to work both ways. I guess for a drop-in replacement/addon option 5 is the easiest, correct? Just plug it in and run ESPHome to install.

Forgot to check the readme: https://github.com/DomiStyle/esphome-panasonic-ac
So indeed, I’m confident it will work. If you can confirm that option 5 is the easiest I will follow up on email for an order ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

I have 6 Panasonic Fancoil PAW-FC2A-K009IR. I removed the cover to inspect the connectors, and only found two 4 pin connectors which are referred to as CN-Module and also 5 pins without connector in the middle just referred to as CN14. any idea if this would work with it?

One thing I see the module is 5V and this shows 12V on the module connector.

It installed well for two devices. The wifi name and password mentioned in the text are incorrect, you can get them from the .yaml file as mentioned in the comment above.
Plugging in (version 5) was very very easy. I now have them running in HA.
– First add them using USB and install your variant of the software.

I now only need to figure out the swing modes, they are not in line with my panasonic module, but that is software I guess.

The post just to confirm the quality of the product and how it works.
Installed about 1 week ago and so far I have used 2 modules without any problems, very easy installation and setup.
Any command is received practically instantly and without any problems.

Great job!
