WARNING
This Installation and Maintenance bulletin is intended to provide the proper procedures for installing a McQuay Console
Water Source Heat Pump. Failure to follow these procedures can cause property damage, severe personal injury or death.
Additional, failure to follow these procedures can cause premature failure of this equipment or cause erratic unit operation,
resulting in diminished unit performance. Disregarding these directions may further lead to suspension or revocation of the
manufacturer's warranty.
Page of 36 / IM 985-1
Pre-Installation
Receiving and Storage
Upon receipt of the equipment, check carton for visible
damage. Make a notation on the shipper’s delivery
ticket before signing. If there is any evidence of rough
handling, immediately open the cartons to check for
concealed damage. If any damage is found, notify the
carrier within 48 hours to establish your claim and
request their inspection and a report. The Warranty
Claims
Department should then be contacted.
WARNING
The installer must determine and follow all applicable
codes and regulations. This equipment presents hazards
of electricity, rotating parts, sharp edges, heat and weight.
Failure to read and follow these instructions can result in
property damage, severe personal injury or death. This
equipment must be installed by experienced, trained
personnel only.
Do not stand or transport the machines on end. For
storing,
each carton is marked with “up” arrows.
1. To prevent damage, do not operate this equipment
for supplementary heating and cooling during the
construction period. Doing so will void the warranty.
In the event that elevator transfer makes up-ended
positioning unavoidable, do not operate the machine
until it has been in the normal upright position for at
least
24 hours.
2. Inspect the carton for any specific tagging numbers
indicated by the factory per a request from the
installing contractor. At this time the voltage, phase
and capacity should be checked against the plans.
Temporary storage at the job site must be indoor,
completely sheltered from rain, snow, etc. High or low
temperatures naturally associated with weather patterns
will not harm the units. Excessively high temperatures,
140°F (60°C) and higher, may deteriorate certain plastic
materials and cause permanent damage.
3. Check the unit size against the plans to verify that
the unit is being installed in the correct location.
4. Before installation, check the available dimensions
where the unit be installed versus the dimensions of
the unit.
IMPORTANT
5. Note the location and routing of water piping,
condensate drain piping, and electrical wiring. The locations of these items are clearly marked on
submittal drawings.
This product was carefully packed and thoroughly
inspected before leaving the factory. Responsibility for its
safe delivery was assumed by the carrier upon acceptance
of the shipment. Claims for loss or damage sustained in
transit must therefore be made upon the carrier as follows:
VISIBLE LOSS OR DAMAGE
Any external evidence of loss or damage must be noted
on the freight bill or carrier’s receipt, and signed by the
carrier’s agent. Failure to adequately describe such
external evidence of loss or damage may result in the
carrier’s refusal to honor a damage claim. The form
required to file such a claim will be supplied by the carrier.
CONCEALED LOSS OR DAMAGE
Concealed loss or damage means loss or damage which
does not become apparent until the product has been
unpacked. The contents may be damaged in transit due
to rough handling even though the carton may not show
external damages. When the damage is discovered upon
unpacking, make a written request for inspection by the
carrier’s agent within fifteen (15) days of the delivery date
and file a claim with the carrier.
6. The installing contractor will find it beneficial
to confer with piping, sheet metal, and electrical
foremen before installing any unit.
Note: Check the unit data plate for correct voltage
with the plans before installing the equipment. Also,
make sure all electrical ground connections are made
in accordance with local code.
7. The contractor shall cover the units to protect the
machines during finishing of the building. This is
critical while spraying fireproofing material on bar
joists, sandblasting, spray painting and plastering. Damage to the unit due to a failure to protect it
during finishing of the building is not covered by the
warranty. Table 1. Physical Data

Regulations, and experienced with this type of equipment.
CAUTION
Sharp edges can cause personal injury. Avoid contact
with them.
1. Consult job blueprints for unit location. Clean area
where unit is to be installed, removing all
construction dirt and debris.
2. Remove the unit from the shipping carton and save
the carton to be used as a protective cover after the
installation is complete. 3. Remove the screws (numbered 1) shown in Figure
1, securing the right and left side /corner panels
to the subbase. Lift the panels up and out until the
bottom tab clears the slot in the subbase.
Note: Set the unit panels aside where they will not
be damaged.
4. Remove the two screws (numbered 2) in Figure 1
securing the front panel to the subbase and remove
the panel by lifting up and tilting out until the panel
tabs clear the slots in the subbase.
Note: If using the Alternate Unit Installation procedure
(Using Mounting Brackets, page 6) it is not necessary
to remove the top section. Continue with step 5 if
using the recommended method of installation.
5. Open the control door and remove the four screws
that hold the top panel and control pad in place
(numbered 3) in Figure 1. On the opposite end of the
cabinet top lift off the blank-off plate to the right and
remove the last two mounting screws (numbered 4)
in Figure 1. Lift the top panel off, turning the control
pad so that it fits down through the opening in the
top panel.
Note: After removing the panels, set aside in a safe
area where they will not be damaged.
STOP! If an outside air damper kit is to be installed,
refer to IM 974 for the manual damper and the
motorized damper kit and install it now.
6. Position the chassis/subbase against the wall where
the unit is to be installed. Remove any mouldings
at the floor or wall (see letter A in Figure 2). Allow
adequate room for piping and electrical connections
in the subbase by checking the electrical connection
end of the subbase and chassis.
Note: Make sure electrical and piping connections
are in the proper location within the subbase end
piping compartment.

7. Remove the filter and locate the existing 1/4"
mounting holes in the bottom of the subbase labeled
(5) in Figure 2 subbase detail.
11.Use a carpenters square and level to check that the
unit is level and 90-degrees to the wall and floor (see
letters C & D in Figure 2).
8. Be sure the subbase is tight to the wall. Transfer
a mark with a marker or pencil to the floor at
mounting hole locations (5).
12.The chassis back panel has a series of slots on the
back flange to mount the assembly to the wall. It is
the installing contractor’s responsibility to select the
correct fasteners for each unit to meet local codes
(see letter E in Figure 2).
9. Move unit away to pre-drill 1/4" mounting holes in
the floor at marked locations.
IMPORTANT
Clean unit mounting area of all construction debris. Check
that the floor is level and at 90 degrees to the wall as
shown in Figure 2.
McQuay recommends the placement of a sound absorbing
mat beneath the unit footprint before continuing to the next
installation step.
Note: Use the appropriate fasteners by others in
accordance with local building codes.
10.Insert fasteners through the mounting holes in
the subbase and secure the subbase to the floor,
tightening the fasteners. Do not over-tighten
fasteners and distort or warp the subbase plate.
Note: Use a minimum of three fasteners to secure
the unit (field supplied). Secure two fasteners into
wall studs.
At location(s) where no stud is present, secure with
a Toggle bolt or equivalent (by others) (see letter F
in Figure 2).
13.Reinstall the panels in reverse order as performed in
steps 3 through 5 on page 4.
14.Cut out one side and the bottom of the shipping
carton, leaving the top and three sides to place over
the unit for protection during construction.

Procedure
1. With the front, left and right cabinet panels
removed, set the entire unit in its final mounting
position.
2. With the chassis still mounted on the subbase,
remove filter to allow access to the subbase bottom
plate.
3. Locate the existing 1/4" mounting holes in the
bottom of the subbase labeled (5) in Figure 3.
Note: Make sure electrical and piping connections
are in the proper location within the subbase end
piping compartment.
4. Transfer a mark with a marker or pencil to the floor
at mounting hole locations (5).
5. Move unit away to pre-drill 1/4" mounting holes in
the floor at marked locations.
STOP! If an outside air damper kit is to be installed,
refer to IM 974 for the manual damper and the
motorized damper kit and install it now.
6. Insert fasteners through the mounting holes in
the subbase and finish securing the unit to the
floor, tightening the fasteners. Do not over-tighten
fasteners and distort or warp the subbase plate. 7. Locate mounting brackets at locations at the wall as
shown in Figure 3.
Note: Brackets should be located approximately 3"
from the top of the chassis, or lower if clearance is
necessary to fasten bracket.
8. Mark the position of the bracket mounting holes
onto the wall. Remove the brackets and using a preset depth drill, pre-drill holes to accept a wall anchor
(by others).
WARNING
Failure to use a pre-set depth drill could result in serious
injury or death.
IMPORTANT
Clean unit mounting area of all construction debris. Check
that the floor is level and at 90 degrees to the wall as
shown in Figure 2, page 5

Piping
1. Connect units to supply and return piping in a twopipe reverse return configuration (Figure 4).
A reverse return system is inherently self-balancing
and requires only trim balancing where multiple
quantities of units with different flow and pressure
drop characteristics are connected to the same loop. A simple way to check for proper water balance is
to take a differential temperature reading across the
water connections when in the cooling mode. To
achieve proper water flow, the differential should be
10°F to 14°F (-5°C to -8°C).
A direct return system may also be acceptable, but
proper water flow balancing is more difficult to
achieve and maintain.
2. The piping can be steel, copper or PVC, but must
comply with local codes.
3. Supply and return run outs are typically connected
to the unit by short lengths of high pressure flexible
hose which are sound attenuators for both unit
operating noise and hydraulic pumping noise. Note: Be sure that one end of the hose has a swivel
fitting to facilitate removal for service. Hard piping to
the unit can result in added operating noise.
4. If sealant compound is not provided for flexible hose
fittings, apply Teflon tape to the connections to help
prevent leaks.
5. Supply and return shutoff valves are required at each
unit. The return valve is used for balancing and
should have a “memory stop” so that it can always
be closed off, but can only be re-opened to the
proper position for the flow required.
6. Do not connect a unit to the supply and return
piping until the water system has been cleaned and
flushed completely. After this is done, the initial
connection should have all valves wide open in
preparation for water system flushing.
7. Condensate piping can be steel, copper, or PVC. Each unit is supplied with a clear vinyl condensate
hose.
Figure 4. Typical 2-Pipe Reverse Return Configuration
IM 985-1 / Page of 36
8. Units are internally trapped. Copper or PVC
condensate lines can be used. A means of
disconnection must be furnished to facilitate chassis
removal.
Shutoff/Balancing Valve Piping
Each heat pump requires a shutoff valve on both the
supply and return lines for easy serviceability and
removal if it becomes necessary.
9. No point of the drain system may be above the drain
pan of any unit.
10.Automatic flow control devices must not be installed
prior to system cleaning and flushing.
11.A high point of the piping system must be vented.
12.Check local code for any requirement for electric
fittings.
Water Connections
We suggest using our combination shutoff/balancing
valves installed in the field between the contractor’s
piping and the heat pump unit. The valve installed on
the return line acts as a balancing valve to adjust the
proper water flow. An automatic flow limiting device is
also available as a factory installed option.
Each shutoff/balancing valve has 1/2" FPT and 1/2"
FPT threaded connections.
Attach the field installed combination shut/off balancing
valve to the building water supply and return piping. All piping connections should be made using good
plumbing practices and in accordance with any and all
local codes that may apply.
Note: On left-hand piping units the water supply
connection is on the top. Right hand piping units the
water supply is at the bottom location.
Unit Piping Connection
Each heat pump is supplied with extended copper
tubing on the water-to-refrigerant coil and 5/8" (16mm)
O.D. tubing. The connections are for both the supply
and return water connections. See Figure 5 for left and
right hand connections locatons.
Add the female pipe adapter connection to unit supply
and return coil connection by sweating them in place
using silver solder.
Using the specified hoses, screw the fixed end
into the shut-off/balancing valve. Remove the 1/2"
adapter from the other end of the hose. Insert the
adapter into the female fitting. Using two crescent
wrenches, one to hold the pipe connection and the
second to tighten the adapter, insert the swivel end of
the hose on the adapter and tighten. This completes the
hose connection to standard heat pump equipment.
Figure 5. Supply and Return Connections Locations for Left- Hand and Right Hand Units (Flat Top and Slope Top)
IMPORTANT
On left-hand piping units the
water supply connection is on
the top. Right-hand piping units
the water supply is at the bottom
location.

Optional Factory-Installed Motorized & Hand Valve
Assemblies
Console water source heat pumps can be configured
with factory-installed motorized valves. Valves
should be mounted on the return water line. All
valve assemblies terminate with 1/2"-NPT threaded
connections and will also accommodate factory supplied
hose kits.
When installing the hoses on valve assemblies, use
the method as outlined in "Shutoff/Balancing Valve
Piping" on page 8.

Note: All plumbing connections are made the same,
whether or not the unit has valve packages. Plumbing
connections must conform with local piping and
building codes. The ability to remove the unit in order
to perform repairs is imperative.
Condensate Hose Connection
Each unit is supplied with a 3/4" (19mm) I.D. clear vinyl
condensate hose internally trapped within the chassis. The
hose extends 3½" (89mm) out of the chassis within the
piping compartment to reach the floor or the back wall.
Field condensate piping must enter within the confines of
the cabinet (back wall or floor) similar to the supply and
return piping. Slide the vinyl hose over the condensate
pipe and clamp it.

Cleaning & Flushing Water System
CAUTION
Prior to first operation of any unit, the water circulating
system must be cleaned and flushed of all construction dirt
and debris.
If the unit is provided with water shutoff valves, either electric or pressure operated, the supply and return run outs
must be connected together at each unit location. This will
prevent the introduction of dirt into the water circulating
system. Additionally, pressure operated valves only open
when the compressor is operating.
1. Prior to first operation of any unit, the water
circulating system must be cleaned and flushed of all
construction dirt and debris.
If the units are equipped with water shutoff valves,
either electric or pressure operated, the supply and
return run outs must be connected together at each
unit location. This will prevent the introduction of
dirt into the unit. See Figure 9.
3. Shut off supplemental heater and circulator pump
and open all drains and vents to completely drain
down the system. Short circuited supply and return
run outs should now be connected to the unit supply
and return connections. Do not use sealers at the
swivel flare connections of hoses.
4. Flush system with water for 2 hours or longer until
water is clean.
5. Refill the system with clean water. Test the water
using litmus paper for acidity, and treat as required
to leave the water slightly alkaline (pH 7.5 to 8.5). The specified percentage of antifreeze may also be
added at this time. Use commercial grade antifreeze
designed for HVAC systems only. Do not use
automotive grade antifreeze (See Table 2 on page 10
for Antifreeze Correction Factors).
Figure 9. Connections for flushing system piping
Once the system has been filled with clean water and
antifreeze (if used), precautions should be taken to
protect the system from dirty water conditions.
NOTICE
It is McQuay International’s policy not to make recommendations on water treatment. It is the responsibility of
the user to check that the water supply to the units is free
of contaminants or corrosive agents, chemicals or minerals. The general contractor or owner should contact a
local water treatment company regarding water treatment.
A fouled closed loop water system will lead to premature
component failure.

2. Fill the system at the city water makeup connection
with all air vents open. After filling, close all air
vents.
The contractor should start main circulator with
the pressure reducing valve open. Check vents in
sequence to bleed off any trapped air, ensuring
circulation through all components of the system.
Power to the heat rejector unit should be off, and the
supplementary heat control set at 80°F (27°C).
While circulating water, the contractor should check
and repair any leaks in the unit and surrounding
piping. Drains at the lowest point(s) in the system
should be opened for initial flush and blow-down,
making sure city water fill valves are set to make up
water at the same rate. Check the pressure gauge at
pump suction and manually adjust the makeup to
hold the same positive steady pressure both before
and after opening the drain valves. Flush should
continue for at least two hours or longer until the
drain water is clean and clear.
Note: Contact a local water treatment company to
confirm water clarity prior to unit operation.
Dirty water will result in system wide degradation
of performance and solids may clog system-wide
valves, strainers, flow regulators, etc. Additionally,
the heat exchanger may become clogged which
reduces compressor service life or causes premature
failure. 6. Set the loop water controller heat add setpoint
to 70°F (21°C) and the heat rejection setpoint to
85°F (29°C). Supply power to all motors and start
the circulating pumps. After full flow has been
established through all components including the
heat rejector (regardless of season) and the vented
air and loop temperatures have been stabilized, each
of the units will be ready for check, test and start-up,
air balancing, and water balancing.
CAUTION
Units must be checked for water leaks upon initial water
system start-up. Water leaks may be a result of mishandling or damage during shipping. Failure by the installing
contractor to check for leaks upon start-up of the water
system could result in property damage.

Electrical Connections
Note: Installation and maintenance must be
performed only by qualified personnel who are
familiar with local codes and regulations, and are
experienced with this type of equipment.
WARNING
Hazardous Voltage!
The installer must determine and follow
all applicable codes and regulations. This
equipment presents hazards of electricity,
rotating parts, sharp edges, heat and weight.
Failure to read and follow these instructions
can result in property damage, severe personal
injury or death.
Standard Electrical Connection
Each chassis comes with a junction box mounted on the
side of the chassis and contains the field electrical
connection (Figure 10).
Figure 10. Junction Box Location
Control Enclosure
Page 12 of 36 / IM 985-1
Junction Box
Note: If electrical wiring or conduit comes through
the floor, all wires or conduit should be sealed at
this point. It will prevent any condensation or water
leakage that may occur due to lack of preventive
maintenance. Each unit has an internal condensate
trap but will require cleaning.
Note: Wiring coming through the wall should be
sealed to stop cold air infiltration through the wall
cavity which could affect unit thermostat operation.
Remove the junction box cover, selecting the proper
knockout and remove it. Install a strain relief and pass
the wires through the strain relief into the junction
box making the connection and reinstall the junction
box cover.
Note: Check the local code concerning correct
electrical connection.
Cord & plug electrical connection (field installed)
Cord connected equipment comes with a box and
appropriate voltage receptacle. However, a disconnect
switch and fuses can also be provided in the box. As an
option, the box comes factory mounted and is ready to be
field wired to the incoming power. The box is mounted
on the same side as the piping.
It is the responsibility of the installing contractor to make
the proper electrical connection to the electrical box, using
the same method as described in the standard electrical
connection.
Mechanical (Compressor) Heating Override
to Electric Heat Operation
Note: Only with units equipped with the electric
heat feature
In the event of a compressor failure or, electric heat is
desired over mechanical (compressor) heating, a factory
certified service technician may reconfigure the male and
female plugs to enable electric heat. This option allows
emergency electric heat when mechanical heating is not
available. Electric heat can be disabled and the unit can be
returned to mechanical (compresssor) heating operation
when desired (Figure 11).
Note: In electric heat mode, unit will not run
compressor on a call for heating. The electric heater
will be utilized instead.

Additional Information
Units are designed to start and operate with entering air
at 40°F (4°C), with entering water at 70°F (21°C), with
both air and water at the flow rates used in the ARIStandard 320-86 rating test, for initial start-up in winter.
Note: This is not a normal or continuous condition.
It is assumed that such a start-up is for the purpose
of bringing the building space to occupancy
temperature.
MicroTech® III Unit Controller
The 24 volt low voltage terminal strip is set up so R-G
energizes the fan, R-Y1 energizes the compressor for
cooling operation, R-W1 energizes the compressor and
reversing valve for heating operation. The reversing
valve is energized in the heating mode. The circuit
board has a fan interlock circuit to energize the fan
whenever the compressor is on if the thermostat logic
fails to do so. The output to the wall stat is AC current. Terminal (R)
on the wall stat can be connected to terminal (R) on the
PC board for AC voltage.
R = AC current
R to G = fan only
R to Y1 = cooling
R to W1 = heat
The MicroTech III unit controller has a lockout circuit
to stop compressor operation if any one of its safety
devices is triggered (high pressure switch and low
temperature sensor). If the low temperature sensor is
triggered, the unit will go into the cooling mode for 60
seconds to defrost any slush in the water-to-refrigerant
heat exchanger. After 60 seconds the compressor is
locked out. If the condensate sensor detects a filled drain
pan, the compressor operation will be suspended only
in the cooling mode. The unit is reset by opening and
closing the disconnect switch on the main power supply
to the unit in the event the unit compressor operation
has been suspended due to low temperature sensor or
high pressure switch. The unit does not have to be reset
on a condensate overflow detection.
The MicroTech III unit controller fault output sends a
signal to an LED on a wall thermostat. Table 6 shows
for which functions the fault output is “on” (sending a
signal to the LED).
Table 6. MicroTech III Unit Controller LED & Fault Outputs
The MicroTech III Unit Controller includes built-in
features such as random start, compressor time delay,
shutdown, condensate overflow protection, defrost
cycle, brownout, and LED/fault outputs. Table 6 shows
the LED and fault output sequences.
The unit has been designed for operation with either
a unit mounted thermostat or a microelectronic wall
thermostat, selected by the manufacturer. Do not operate
the unit with any other type of wall thermostat.
Each unit has a printed circuit board control system. The
low voltage output from the low voltage terminal strip
is AC voltage to the wall thermostat. R is A/C voltage
output to the wall stat.

Cooling or Heating – Manual Operation
The Microtech III unit controller has built-in features
such as random start, compressor time delay, night
setback, load shed, shutdown, condensate overflow
protection, defrost cycle, brownout, and LED/fault
outputs. Table 10 shows the LED and fault output
sequences. The 24 volt low voltage terminal strip is set
so R-G energizes the fan. R-W1 energizes the fan and
compressor and reversing valve for heating operation.
The reversing valve is set up to be energized in the
heating mode. The circuit board has a fan interlock
circuit to energize the fan whenever the compressor is
on.
The Microtech III unit controller has a lockout circuit to
stop compressor operation if any one of its safeties
opens (high pressure or suction line sensor). If the
suction line low temperature sensor opens, the unit will
go into the cooling mode for 60 seconds to defrost any
slush in the water-to-refrigerant heat exchanger. After 60 seconds, the compressor is locked out. If
the condensate sensor detects a filled drain pan, the
compressor operation will be suspended only in the
cooling mode. The unit is reset by opening and closing
the disconnect switch on the main power supply to the
unit in the event the unit compressor operation has been
suspended due to low suction line sensor reaching its
set point, or a high pressure switch.
The Microtech III unit controller has a fault output
signal to an LED on a wall thermostat. Table 10 shows
in which function the fault output is “on” (sending a
signal to the LED).

Each water source heat pump unit has a compressor and
blower motor. Each component part has and internal
temperature and amperage sensitive overload. If the overload opens it will suspend unit operation. Check component
parts by measuring the winding resistance and looking for
an open circuit.

Wireless Temperature Control (T9000)
The T9000 Wireless Temperature Control is designed
to provide precision temperature control without the
installation labor and expense of wiring. • Powered by AA batteries
• Mounts in any suitable location that will provide good temperature control. • Large LCD display provides the user with
current room temperature, set point temperature,
time, program interval, and other system status
information.
For detailed installation, operation refer to Operation &
Maintenance Bulletin OM 897.
Programmable The second part of the T9000 system is called a Remote
Control Node or “RCN”. An RCN interfaces with
specific desired HVAC equipment, and communicates
with its thermostat using unlicensed 900 MHz, radio
frequency energy. At the time of installation, the T9000
thermostat is linked to one or more RCN controls. The
thermostat and RCN that have been linked will not
interfere with, or be affected by, any other thermostat
or RCN in adjacent rooms, apartments, or neighboring
homes.
Remote Control Node (RCN)
Used with the Wireless Temperature Control, the

The Multiple Unit Control Panel (MUCP) is an
accessory used when up to 3-units are controlled from a
single thermostat. Console units must have the MUCP
field-installed in a remote location, typically close to the
units and convenient for service access.
A maximum of 2 boards may be used together if up to
6-units must be connected and controlled from a single
thermostat.
Note: The MUCP control board does not fit inside
the console unit control box.
Multi-speed operation is only available with the
optional unit-mounted fan speed switch.
The multiple unit control board provides the components
necessary to protect the MicroTech III unit controller
from electrical damage that may occur when using
standard off-the-shelf relays. This version of the board uses VAC relays and should
not be used in combination with any other accessories
or equipment that require VDC connections to the “G”,
“W1”, or “Y1” terminals (i.e. Boilerless System Kit).

Troubleshooting
The in and outs of R-410A
R-410A is a non-ozone depleting blend of two
refrigerants - HFC-125 and HFC-32 in a fifty percent
mixture. R-410A exhibits higher operating pressure and
refrigeration capacity than R-22. R-410A is intended
for use in new air conditioning applications that have
traditionally used HCFC-22 (R-22). Due to higher
capacity and pressure of R-410A, it must not be used in
existing R-22 systems.
Although R-410A is non-flammable at ambient
temperature and atmospheric pressure, it can become
combustible under pressure when mixed with air.
Note: R-410A should not be mixed with air under
pressure for leak testing. Pressure mixtures of dry
nitrogen and R-410A can be used for leak testing.
Lubrication
R-410A should be used only with polyester (POE)
oil. The HFC refrigerant components in R-410A will
not be compatible with mineral oil or alkylbenzene
lubricants. R-410A systems will be charged with the
OEM recommended lubricant, ready for use with R410A.
Charging
Due to the zeotropic nature of R-­410A, it should
be charged as a liquid. In situations where vapor is
normally charged into a system, a valve should be
installed in the charging line to flash the liquid to vapor
while charging.
­ ake certain that the recycle or recovery equipment
M
used is designed for R-410A. The pressure of R-410A
refrigerant is approximately 60 percent greater than
that of R-22. Pressure gauges require a range up to
800 PSIG high side and 250 PSIG low side. Recovery
cylinders require a 400 PSIG rating – do not put R410A in a 300 PSIG rated cylinder.
WARNING
Recycle/recovery equipment must be designated for R410A. R-410A pressure is greater than R-22. Improper
equipment can cause severe injury or death.
Note: Because a water source heat pump operates
under a wide range of water and air temperatures, the
values printed below are to be taken as suggested
pressure and temperatures. All McQuay water
source heat pumps are designed for commercial
use. The units are designed for the cooling
mode of operation and fail safe to cooling. The
reversing valve is energized for the heating mode of
operation.

All information above is based on ISO standard
13256-1 and tested at these conditions.
General Maintenance
1. Normal maintenance on all units is generally
limited to filter changes. Units are provided with
permanently lubricated motors and require no oiling
even though oil caps may be provided.
2. Filter changes are required at regular intervals. The
time period between changes will depend upon
the project requirements. Some applications such
as motels produce a lot of lint from carpeting and
linen changes, and will require more frequent filter
changes. Check filters at 60-day intervals for the
first year until experience is acquired. If light cannot
be seen through the filter when held up to sunlight
or a bright light, it should be changed. A more
critical standard may be desirable.
3. The condensate drain pan should be checked
annually and cleaned and flushed as required.
4. Record performance measurements of volts, amps,
and water temperature differences (both heating and
cooling). A comparison of logged data with start-up
and other annual data is useful as an indicator of
general equipment condition.
5. Periodic lockouts almost always are caused by air or
water problems. The lockout (shutdown) of the unit
is a normal protective result. Check for dirt in the
water system, water flow rates, water temperatures,
airflow rates (may be a dirty filter), and air
temperatures. If the lockout occurs in the morning
following a return from night setback, entering air
below machine limits may be the cause.

Cooling Refrigeration Cycle
When the wall thermostat is calling for COOLING, the reversing valve directs the flow of the refrigerant, a hot gas,
leaving the compressor, to the water-to-refrigerant heat exchanger. Here the heat is removed by the water and the
hot gas condenses to become a liquid. The liquid then flows through a thermal expansion metering system to the
air-to-refrigerant heat exchanger coil. The liquid then evaporates becoming a gas, at the same time absorbing heat
and cooling the air passing over the surfaces of the coil. The refrigerant then flows as a low pressure gas through the
reversing valve and back to the suction side of the compressor to complete the cycle. Figure 27. Heating Mode

DANGER
Read Outputs
To avoid electrical shock, personal injury or death, be
sure that field wiring complies with local and national fire,
safety, and electrical codes, and voltage to the system is
within the limits shown in the job-specific drawings and
unit electrical data plate(s).
Check Timers
Power supply to unit must be disconnected when
making field connections. To avoid electrical shock, personal injury or death, be sure to rigorously adhere to field
wiring procedures regarding proper lockout and tagout of
components.
General Use and Information
The Microtech III unit controller is provided with two
drive terminals, R(24VAC) and C(0 VAC) that can be
used by the end user to drive the thermostat inputs (G,
Y1, Y2, W1, and W2) and control inputs (U, E, and
O). Any combination of a single board drive terminal
(R or C) may be used to operate the MicroTech III unit
controller’s control or thermostat inputs. However, only
one drive terminal (R or C) can be connected to any
individual input terminal or damage may result. Some
control inputs are not accessible to the end user (for
example, HP, LP, SLTS, and COF). Typically the Microtech III unit controller’s R (24VAC)
terminal is used to drive the board’s thermostat inputs
and control inputs by connecting it to the R terminal
of an industry standard thermostat. The control outputs
of the standard thermostat are then connected to the
Microtech III unit controller thermostat inputs and
control inputs as needed. Any remaining board input(s)
may be operated by additional thermostat outputs or
remote relays (dry contacts only).
All Microtech III unit controller inputs must be operated
by dry contacts powered by the control board’s power
terminals. No solid state devices (Triacs) may be used
to operate the Microtech III unit controller inputs. No outside power source may be used to operate the
Microtech III unit controller inputs.
