General
Keep children and pets away from both the hydrobox and outdoor units.
Do not use the hot water produced by the heat pump directly for drinking or cooking. This could cause illness to the user.
Do not stand on the units.
Do not touch switches with wet hands.
Annual maintenance checks on both the hydrobox and the outdoor unit should be done by qualified person.
Do not place items containing liquid in on top of the hydrobox. If they leak or spill onto the hydrobox damage to the unit and or fire could occur.
Do not place any heavy items on top of the hydrobox.
When installing or relocating, or servicing the hydrobox, use only the specified refrigerant (R410A) to charge the refrigerant lines. Do not mix it with any other refrigerant and do not allow air to remain in the lines. If air is mixed with the refrigerant, then it can be the cause of abnormal high pressure in the refrigerant line, and may
result in an explosion and other hazards.
The use of any refrigerant other than that specified for the system will cause mechanical failure or system malfunction or unit breakdown. In the worst case, this could
lead to a serious impediment to securing product safety.
CAUTION
Use clean water that meets local quality standards on the primary circuit.
The outdoor unit should be installed in an area with sufficient airflow according to the diagrams in the outdoor unit installation manual.
The hydrobox should be located inside to minimise heat loss.
Water pipe-runs on the primary circuit between outdoor and indoor unit should be kept to a minimum to reduce heat loss.
Ensure condensate from outdoor unit is piped away from the base to avoid puddles of water.
Remove as much air as possible from water circuit.
Refrigerant leakage may cause suffocation. Provide ventilation in accordance with EN378-1.
Be sure to wrap insulation around the piping. Direct contact with the bare piping may result in burns or frostbite.
Never put batteries in your mouth for any reason to avoid accidental ingestion.
Battery ingestion may cause choking and/or poisoning.
Install the unit on a rigid structure to prevent excessive sound or vibration during operation.
If power to the hydrobox is to be turned off (or system switched off) for a long time, the water should be drained.
Preventative measures should be taken against water hammer, such as installing a Water Hammer Arrestor on the primary water circuit, as directed by the manufacturer.
1 Safety Notices
WARNING (SPLIT MODELS ONLY)
Do not discharge refrigerant into the atmosphere if refrigerant leaks during installation, ventilate the room.
Use appropriate tools for high pressure refrigerant.
When pumping down refrigerant , stop the compressor before disconnecting the refrigerant pipes.
During installation securely fasten the refrigerant pipes before starting the compressor.
Check that refrigerant gas does not leak after the completion of installation.
Use R410A refrigerant only. Do not allow air to enter the lines. Failure to observe these instructions will cause mechanical failure, system failure or, in the worst case,
serious breach of product safety.
CAUTION (SPLIT MODELS ONLY)
<Using R410A refrigerant heat pumps>
Use C1220 copper phosphorus, for copper and copper alloy seamless pipes, to connect the refrigerant pipes. Make sure the insides of the pipes are clean and do not
contain any harmful contaminants such as sulfuric compounds, oxidants, debris, or dust. Use pipes with the specified thickness. (Refer to 4.4.) Note the following if reusing existing pipes that carried R22 refrigerant.
- Replace the existing flare nuts and flare the flared sections again.
- Do not use thin pipes. (Refer to 4.4.)
Store the pipes to be used during installation indoors and keep both ends of the pipes sealed until just before brazing. (Leave elbow joints, etc. in their packaging.) If
dust, debris, or moisture enters the refrigerant lines, oil deterioration or compressor breakdown may result.
Use ester oil, ether oil, alkylbenzene oil (small amount) as the refrigeration oil applied to the flared sections. If mineral oil is mixed in the refrigeration oil, oil deterioration
may result.
Do not use refrigerant other than R410A refrigerant. If another refrigerant is used, the chlorine will cause the oil to deteriorate.
Use the following tools specifically designed for use with R410A refrigerant. The following tools are necessary to use R410A refrigerant. Contact your nearest dealer for
any questions.
Tools (for R410A)
Gauge manifold
Charge hose
Gas leak detector
Torque wrench
Flare tool
Size adjustment gauge
Vacuum pump adapter
Electronic refrigerant charging scale
Be sure to use the correct tools. If dust, debris, or moisture enters the refrigerant lines, refrigeration oil deterioration may result.
Do not use a charging cylinder. If a charging cylinder is used, the composition of the refrigerant will change and system efficiency will be reduced.
2 Introduction
The purpose of this installation manual is to instruct competent persons how to
safely and efficiently install and commission the hydrobox system. The target
readers of this manual are competent plumbers and/or refrigeration engineers
who have the appropriate electrical competence/qualification and who have at-
tended and passed the requisite Mitsubishi Electric product training and have appropriate qualifications for installation of an unvented hot water hydrobox specific
to their country.
Overview of the System
The Mitsubishi Electric Air to Water (ATW) for heat pump system with hydrobox
consists of the following components; outdoor heat pump unit and indoor hydrobox incorporating the main controller.
DHW tank
How the Heat Pump Works
Space heating and DHW
Heat pumps take electric energy and low grade heat energy from the outdoor air
to heat refrigerant which in turn heats water for domestic use and space heating.
The efficiency of a heat pump is known as the Coefficient of Performance or COP
this is the ratio of heat delivered to power consumed. The heat pump operates
most efficiently when generating low flow temperatures.
The operation of a heat pump is similar to a refrigerator in reverse. This process
is known as the vapour-compression cycle and the following is a more detailed
explanation.
1. Compressor
The first phase begins with the refrigerant being cold and low pressure.
1. The refrigerant within the circuit is compressed as it passes through the compressor. It becomes a hot highly pressurised gas. The temperature also rises
typically to 60°C.

4. Evaporator

2. Condenser
(Plate heat exchanger)
Heat energy output

2. The hot refrigerant gas is then condensed as it passes across one side of a
plate heat exchanger. Heat from the refrigerant gas is transferred to the cooler
side (water side) of the heat exchanger. As the temperature of the refrigerant
decreases its state changes from a gas to a liquid.
3. Now as a cold liquid it still has a high pressure. To reduce the pressure the liquid passes through an expansion valve. The pressure drops but the refrigerant
remains a cold liquid.
4. The final stage of the cycle is when the refrigerant passes into the evaporator
and evaporates. It is at this point when some of the free heat energy in the outside air is absorbed by the refrigerant.
It is only the refrigerant that passes through this cycle; the water is heated as it
travels through the plate heat exchanger. The heat energy from the refrigerant
passes through the plate heat exchanger to the cooler water which increases in
temperature. This heated water enters the primary circuit and is circulated and
used to serve the space heating system and DHW cylinder (if present in system).
2 Introduction
Overview of the Controls
Built into the front of the indoor unit is the Flow Temperature Controller3 (FTC3).
This device controls the function of both the outdoor heat pump unit and the
indoor unit. The advanced technology means that by using an FTC3 controlled
heat pump you can not only make savings compared to traditional fossil fuel type
heating systems but also compared to many other heat pumps on the market.
As explained in the earlier section, ‘How the Heat Pump Works,’ heat pumps are
most efficient when providing low flow temperature water. The FTC3’s sophisticated technology enables the room temperature to be kept at the desired level
whilst utilising the lowest possible flow temperature from the heat pump.
FTC3
The controller uses temperature sensors around the heating system to monitor
the air and flow temperatures. This data is regularly updated and compared to
previous data by the controller to predict changes in room temperature and adjust
the heat pump output accordingly. By monitoring not only the outdoor ambient,
but the room and water circuit temperatures, the heating is more consistent and
sudden spikes in required heating are reduced. This results in a lower overall
flow temperature being required.

<How it works>
Temperature data is regularly received by the FTC3 from temperature sensors
around the heating system. The most recent data is used with the previous temperature readings to predict the flow temperature required to keep the room temperature constant.
The room temperature sensor can either be wired or the Mitsubishi wireless remote controller can be used as it incorporates a temperature sensor. For more
information on room temperature sensor options see section ‘Remote Controller
Options’. (Page 26)

4.2 Water Quality and System Preparation
General
• Water quality should be to European Directive 98/83 EC standards.
►pH value of 6.5-8.0 (Recommended: pH6.5 - 7.5)
►Calcium ≤ 100 mg/l
►Chlorine ≤ 100 mg/l
►Iron/Manganese ≤ 0.5 mg/l
• In installations where the hydrobox is used to generate domestic hot water
(DHW) via an indirect unvented DHW cylinder the following instruction/advice
should be observed:
In known hard water areas, to prevent/minimise scaling, it is beneficial to restrict
the routine stored water temperature (DHW max. temp.) to 55°C.
New Installation
Existing Installation
• Before connecting outdoor unit the existing heating circuit MUST be chemically
cleansed to remove existing debris from the heating circuit.
• Flush the system to remove chemical cleanser.
• For all packaged systems add a combined inhibitor and anti-freeze solution to
prevent damage to the pipe work and system components.
• For split systems the responsible installer should decide if anti-freeze solution is
necessary for each site’s conditions. Corrosion inhibitor however should always
be used.
When using chemical cleansers and inhibitors always follow manufacturer’s
instructions and ensure the product is appropriate for the materials used in
the water circuit
• Before connecting outdoor unit, thoroughly cleanse pipe work of building debris,
solder etc using a suitable chemical cleansing agent.
• Flush the system to remove chemical cleanser.
• For all packaged systems add a combined inhibitor and anti-freeze solution to
prevent damage to the pipe work and system components.
• For split systems the responsible installer should decide if anti-freeze solution is
necessary for each site’s conditions. Corrosion inhibitor however should always
be used.

4.3 Water Pipe work
Note: Prevent the field piping from straining the piping on the hydrobox by fixing it
to a wall or applying other methods.
Hot Water Pipe work
The function of the following safety components of the hydrobox should be
checked on installation for any abnormalities;
• Pressure relief valve discharge
• Expansion vessel pre-charge pressure
The instruction on the following pages regarding safe discharge of hot water from
Safety devices should be followed carefully.
• The pipe work will become very hot, so should be insulated to prevent burns.
• When connecting pipe work, ensure that no foreign objects such as debris or
the like do not enter the pipe
Hydraulic filter work (ONLY EHPX series)
Install a hydraulic filter or strainer (field supply) at the water intake (“Pipe B” in
Fig.3.4, also see associated schematic Fig. 3.5).
Filling the System (Primary Circuit)
Filling
1. Check all connections including factory fitted ones are tight.
2. Insulate pipe work between hydrobox and outdoor unit.
3. Thoroughly clean and flush, system of all debris. (see section 4.2 for detailed
instructions.)
4. Fill primary heating circuit with water and suitable anti-freeze and inhibitor as
necessary. Always use a filling loop with double check valve when filling
the primary circuit to avoid back flow contamination of water supply.
Pipe work Connections
Connections to the hydrobox should be made using the 28 mm compression as
appropriate.
Do not over-tighten compression fittings as this will lead to deformation of the olive
ring and potential leaks. It is recommended that isolating valves are fitted on the
flow and return water connections to enable easy future service and maintenance
(see item 8 in figs 3.5 and 3.6.)
Note: To weld the pipes in the field, cool the pipes on the hydrobox using wet towel
etc.
Insulation of Pipe work
• All exposed water pipe work should be insulated to prevent unnecessary heat
loss and surface condensation.
• Cold and hot water pipe work should not be run close together where possible,
to avoid unwanted heat transfer.
• Pipe work between outdoor heat pump unit and hydrobox should be insulated
with suitable pipe insulation material with a thermal conductivity of ≤ 0.04 W/m.K.
• Anti-freeze should always be used for package systems. It is the responsibility of the installer to decide if anti-freeze solution should be used in split
systems depending on each site’s conditions. Corrosion inhibitor should be
used in both split and package systems.
• When connecting metal pipes of different materials insulate the joints to
prevent a corrosive reaction taking place which will damage the pipework.
5. Check for leaks. If leaks are found, retighten the screws on the connections.
6. Pressurise system to 1 bar.
7. Release all trapped air using air vents during and following heating period.
8. Top up with water as necessary. (If pressure falls below 1 bar)

<Second pump >
If a second pump is required for the installation please read the following carefully.
If a second pump is used in the system it can be positioned in 2 ways.
The position of the pump influences which terminal of the FTC3 the signal cable
should be wired to. If the additional pump(s) have current greater than 1A please
use appropriate relay. Pump signal cable can either be wired to TBO.1 1-2 or
CNP1 but not both.
Option 2 (Primary circuit DHW and space heating)
If the second pump is being used in the primary circuit between the hydrobox and
the outdoor unit (Package system ONLY) then the signal cable should be wired to
TBO.1 terminals 1 and 2 (OUT1). In this position the pump speed must match
the speed of the hydrobox’s in-built pump.
200
<Figure 4.3.1>
Pump speed can be selected on the pump (see <Figure 4.3.2>).
Adjust the pump speed setting so that the flow rate in the primary circuit is appropriate for the outdoor unit installed see Table 4.3.1. It may be necessary to add
an additional pump to the system depending on the length and lift of the primary
circuit.
Option 1 (Space heating only)
If the second pump is being used for the heating circuit only then the signal cable
should be wired to TBO.1 terminals 3 and 4 (OUT2). In this position the pump can
be run at a different speed to the hydrobox’s in-built pump.

Safety Device Connections
The hydrobox contains a pressure relief valve. (see <Figure 4.3.4>) The connection size is G1/2” female. The installer MUST connect appropriate discharge
pipework from this valve in accordance with local and national regulations.
Failure to do so will result in discharge from the pressure relief valve directly into
the hydrobox and cause serious damage to the product.
A pressure relief valve (3 bar) is supplied as a loose accessory with the hydrobox
in addition to the pressure relief valve that is installed on the hydrobox. Install the
pressure relief valve on the local piping connected to the space heating flow.
The connection size is G1/2” (the drain connection size G1/2”).
The space heating/indirect DHW cylinder primary flow can be identified on the
pipe diagram label on the bottom of the hydrobox.
All pipework used should be capable of withstanding discharge of hot water.
Relief valves should NOT be used for any other purpose, and their discharges
should terminate in a safe and appropriate manner in accordance with local regulation requirements.
Note: Beware that the manometer and the pressure relief valve are NOT strained
on its capillary side and on its inlet side respectively.

Installation procedure for DHW tank
Specification of 2-way valve (field supply)
• Power supply: 230V AC
• Current: 0.1A Max (If over 0.1A you must use a relay)
• Type: Normally closed
Note:
• Be aware that the respective DHW operations are greatly effected by the selections of the components such as tank, immersion heater, or the like.
• Follow your local regulations to perform system configuration.
Installation Electrical connection Output signal
position
terminal block
Heating
DHW
1. To enable switching of the water circulation circuit between the DHW mode
and the heating mode, install a 3-way valve (field supply). The 3-way valve and
the DHW tank should be positioned as shown in the system diagram on the
page 10, figs 3.5/3.6 as applicable.
The use of two 2-way valves can perform the same function as a 3-way valve.
2. Install the enclosed thermistor THW5B on the DHW tank.
It is recommended to position the thermistor at the mid point of the DHW tank
capacity. Insulate thermistor from ambient air. Especially for double (insulated)
tank, thermistor should be attached to the inner side (to detect the water temperature).

Note: Should the 2-way valve become blocked the water circulation will stop.
A by-pass valve or circuit should be installed between pump and 2-way
valve for safety.
The TBO.3-7, 8 terminals on the FTC3 are shown in the wiring diagram on
the right.
The 2-way valve (field supply) should be installed according to the instructions supplied with it. Follow 2-way valve maker’s instructions as to whether
to connect an earth cable or not.
• For the 2-way valve, choose the one that slowly opens and shuts off to
prevent water hammer sound.
• Choose the 2-way valve equipped with manual override, which is necessary for topping up or draining of water.
3. Connect the thermistor lead to the THW5 connector on the FTC3.
If the thermistor lead is too long it can be cut to the required length and then
connected directly to the THW5B labeled terminals on the terminal block TBI.1.
4. The external output terminals for the 3-way valve is TBO.1-7, 8, 9 (OUT4).
The TBO.1-7, 8, 9 terminals on the FTC3 are shown in the wiring diagram on
the right.
Choose the terminals that the 3-way valve is connected to between TBO.1-7, 8,
or TBO. 1- 7, 8, 9, according to the rated voltage.
When the rated current of the 3-way valve exceeds 0.1A, be sure to use a
relay with maximum voltage and current ratings of 230V AC / 0.1A when connecting to the FTC3. Do not directly connect the 3-way valve cable to the
FTC3.
Connect the relay cable to the TBO. 1-7, 8 terminals.For systems using 2-way
valves instead of a 3-way valve please read the following;
5. Turn the DIP SW1-3 on the FTC3 to ON.
6. When using the immersion heater (field supply), connect a contact relay cable
for the immersion heater to TBO.3-5, 6 (OUT9), and turn the Dip SW1-4 to ON.
Do NOT directly connect the power cable to the FTC3.
Note:
• When an immersion heater is installed, select appropriate breaker capacity
and a cable with appropriate diameter on the basis of heater output.
• When wiring an immersion heater in the field, always install an earth leakage
breaker to prevent accidental electric shock.

5.3 Remote Controller Options
The hydrobox comes factory fitted with a main controller. This incorporates a
thermistor for temperature monitoring and a graphical user interface to enable
set-up, view current status and input scheduling functions. The main controller
is also used for servicing purposes. (This function is accessed via the password
protected service menus.)
To provide the best efficiency Mitsubishi Electric recommends using automatic
adaptation function based on room temperature. To use this function a room thermistor needs to be present in a main living area. This can be done in a number of
ways the most convenient are detailed below.
Refer to heating section of this manual for instructions on how to set compensation curve, flow temp or room temp (Auto adaptation).
For instructions on how to set the thermistor input for the FTC3 please refer
to initial settings section.

<Explanation of DHW operation>
• When the tank temperature drops from “DHW max. temp” by more than the “DHW
max. temperature drop” (set by installer), DHW mode operates and the flow
from the primary heating circuit is diverted to heat the water in the storage tank.
• When the temperature of the stored water reaches the ‘DHW max. temp.’ set by
the installer or if the ‘DHW max. operation time’ set by the installer is exceeded,
DHW mode ceases to operate.
• Whilst DHW mode is in operation primary hot water is not directed to the space
heating circuit.
• Directly after DHW max. operation time ‘DHW mode restriction’ will routinely operate. The duration of this feature is set by the installer and during its operation
DHW mode can not (normally) be reactivated, allowing time for the system to
deliver primary hot water to the space heating if required.
• After normal ‘DHW mode restriction’ operation the DHW mode can operate
again and tank heating will continue according to system demand.

DHW mode can run in either ‘Normal’ or ‘Eco’ mode. Normal mode will heat the

<Explanation of Legionella Prevention Mode operation>
• At the time entered by the installer ‘Start time’ flow of useful heat from the system is diverted to heat the water in the storage tank.
• When the temperature of the stored water exceeds the ‘Hot Water temp.’ set by
the installer (above 65°C), primary circuit water is no longer diverted to heat the
tank.
• Whilst LP mode is in operation hot water is not directed to the space heating
circuit.
• Directly after LP mode operation ‘Duration of max. temp’ will operate. The duration of this feature is set by the installer and during its operation stored water
temperature will be monitored.
• If stored water temperature should drop to LP restart temp, LP mode will restart
and water flow from the system will be directed to boost the tank temperature.
Once the set time for Duration of Max. temp has passed LP mode will not recur
for the set interval (set by installer).
• It is the responsibility of the installer to ensure the settings for legionella prevention are compliant with local and national guidelines.

Please note that LP mode uses the assistance of electric heaters (if present)
to supplement the energy input of the heat pump. Heating water for long
periods of time is not efficient and will increase running costs. The installer
should give careful consideration to the necessity of legionella prevention
treatment whilst not wasting energy by heating the stored water for excessive
time periods. The end user should understand the importance of this feature.
ALWAYS COMPLY WITH LOCAL AND NATIONAL GUIDANCE FOR YOUR
COUNTRY REGARDING LEGIONELLA PREVENTION.
Forced DHW
The forced DHW function is used to force the system to operate in DHW mode. In
normal operation the water in the DHW tank will be heated either to the set temperature or for the maximum DHW time, whichever occurs first. However should
there be a high demand for hot water ‘Forced DHW’ function can be used to prevent the system from routinely switching to space heating and continue to provide
heating for DHW tank.
Forced DHW mode is activated by pressing button F1 when the ‘Option Screen’
is displayed. Following operation, the system will automatically return to normal
operation.
Mode 2 - Heating

< Explanation of compensation curve >
During late spring and summer usually the demand for space heating is reduced.
To prevent the heat pump from producing excessive flow temperatures for the
primary circuit the compensation curve mode can be used to maximise efficiency
and reduce running costs.
The compensation curve is used to restrict the flow temperature of the primary
space heating circuit dependent on the outdoor temperature. The FTC3 uses
information from both an outdoor temperature sensor and a temperature sensor
on the primary circuit supply to ensure the heat pump is not producing excessive
flow temperatures if the weather conditions do not require it.

7 Service and Maintenance
The indoor hydrobox must be serviced once a year by a qualified individual.
Servicing and maintenance of the outdoor unit should only be done by a Mitsubishi Electric trained technician with relevant qualifications and experience. Any
electrical work should be done by a tradesperson with the appropriate electrical
qualifications. Any maintenance or ‘DIY’ fixes done by a non-accredited person
could invalidate the Warranty and/or result in damage to the hydrobox and injury
to the person.

8 Supplementary information
Refrigerant recovery (pump down) for split systems only
For split system the following procedures should be followed to recover system refrigerant:
Note) Pump down operation can not be activated by switching the pump down switch (SWP) or test run switch on the outdoor unit PCB.
Ensure both the outdoor unit and the indoor unit are in emergency mode before carrying out the following.
For pump down operation in split systems both the indoor and the outdoor unit must be in emergency mode.
Please see the following instructions on how to activate emergency mode.
Before carrying out the pump down, ensure the water pump is functioning correctly and L9 error code is not displayed on the main controller.
If there is insufficient water circulation, the circuit may freeze causing damage to the plate HEX.
If there is a fault with the pump or L9 error code is displayed on the main controller, do not attempt pump down operation.
In this case a refrigerant recovery machine must be used.
1. Isolate outdoor unit from power supply by switching OFF relevant circuit breaker.
If the indoor unit is powered independently to the outdoor unit, ensure that BOTH units are isolated from the power supply.
2. Fully close the stop valve on the refrigerant (liquid) pipe and attach the pressure gauge to the port on the low pressure side of the compressor refrigerant pipe work.
Change the position of the connector CN31 to ON and change DipSW4-2 to OFF on the outdoor unit PCB.
Change the DipSW4-5 on the indoor unit to ON.
3. Switch ON power to the outdoor unit.
If the indoor unit is powered independently, switch on power to the indoor unit FIRST, then switch on power to the outdoor unit.
Outdoor and indoor unit will start operating in emergency mode.
Note) If the outdoor unit is operated whilst the indoor unit is switched off, this could cause serious damage to the plate HEX.
Always ensure the indoor unit power supply is ON and water pump is operating before switching ON power to the outdoor unit.
After reconnecting power supply, ensure the water pump is operating correctly.
If the water pump is not operating normally, then this could cause the water circuit to freeze and DAMAGE the plate HEX.
4. When the pressure gauge reads close to 0MPa (G), close the valve on the refrigerant (gas) pipe and then switch power to outdoor unit OFF.
If the indoor unit is powered independently ensure power supply for unit is OFF.
Note) It is important that after closing the valve on the refrigerant (gas) pipe the power supply is quickly switched OFF.
If the system is running at a pressure of 0MPa (G) or lower, it may cause damage to the compressor.
5. After completing the pump down operation, return the position of the connector CN31 on the outdoor unit PCB to OFF.
Change the Dip SW4-5 on the indoor unit to OFF.
