New Standard AS/NZ IEC 62552-3 for R-WX620KA

What is the different between New Standard AS/NZ IEC 62552-3 vs AS/NZS 4474.2

The new range of Made in Japan refrigerators have been tested to the new standard AS/NZ IEC 62552-3 being introduced in 2021. Under the new standard the way the refrigerator volume is measured changes – it measures the Usable Storage Space.

R-G620GAX and R-WX620KA are basically the same refrigerator with same physical dimensions however the storage capacity we can claim is now reduced for the R-WX620KA.

Vacuum-sealed for Food Freshness

Platinum Catalyst with Ruthenium Vacuum Compartment

The secret to longer-lasting freshness is reduced oxygen levels. Hitachi’s original preservation extracts air to maintain approx. 0.8 atm of vacuum preservation. With unique Platinum Catalyst, chilled meat, fish and dairy products are kept fresh and nutritious, and ready to cook.

Vacuum-sealed for Food Freshness

Nutrition Retention

Stay healthy. A vacuumed environment prevents oxidisation and retains nutrients inside the food.

K-value of 20% or higher is not suitable for eating raw and K-value of 60% or higher is not suitable for consumption. The effect may differ depending on types or freshness of food stored, and does not extend to best-before and expiration dates.

Flavour Preservation

Excellent preservation of original flavour and texture, by minimising the drips while keeping them fresh without getting frozen and hydrated without the need for troublesome wrapping.

Quick Seasoning

Quick seasoning is made possible because the Vacuum Compartment removes air from stored food, enabling seasoning to be absorbed at a faster rate.*3 So, with less time required for seasoning and cooking, there’s more time for eating!

Refreshing Technology Refreshing Technology open button

Refreshing Technology Maintains 0.8 atm Vacuum*

Hitachi innovation at its finest and most consistent: the sealed pressure-resistant vacuum realises and maintains the vacuumed environment. A vacuum pump extracts air and reduces oxygen to achieve approx. 0.8 atm (atmospheric pressure) throughout usage.

Refreshing Technology Maintains 0.8 atm Vacuum

* Vacuum means the space where the pressure is lower than the atmospheric pressure. The pressure in the Vacuum Compartment is about 0.8 atm, which is lower than the atmospheric pressure, hence, Hitachi considers this a vacuum.

Sensor Cooling

The lower 2 shelves are kept at approx. 2°C. This is lower than the regular refrigerator temperature, so your items stored here retain their freshness. The sensor detects temperature changes and adjusts the cooling power to maintain the 2°C temperature in the right lower compartment.*

Retains All the Natural Goodness of Your Food

Delicious Freezing Technology

Delicious Freezing technology seals in the original textures, flavours and nutritional value of fresh and cooked products. This is achieved by freezing food very quickly past the maximum ice crystal formation zone on a big aluminium tray.

Delicious Freezing Technology


Seals in Flavours of Meat and Fish

When the Temperature Sensor detects the temperature of hot food, it will automatically switch the setting and freeze it very quickly to past the maximum ice crystal formation zone. This minimises dripping by reducing ice crystal size, thus sealing in flavours of meat and fish.

VIP – Vacuum Insulation Panel Technology

VIP is a thin panel with a very fine glass fibre vacuum inside, giving an extremely high heat insulation performance - much higher than that of Urethane, a conventional insulation material. It prevents external heat from escaping to achieve exceptional energy savings. Cooling retention is 15 hours, with the highest heat insulation performance during power cut.

Frost Recycle Cooling Technology

In Frost Recycling Cooling, chilled air is generated by frost formed in the evaporator. This is recycled by being sent to every compartment to cool down – even when the compressor is not running. Through such a system, energy consumption is reduced.
