Preface
This system is a modular zone controllable air conditioning system of great sophistication which is capable of assembly in a
variety of different configurations. It would, however, be no exaggeration to say that the full potential of the systems functions can
only be achieved in combination with the skills of those involved in the design of the equipment itself and those responsible for the
installation work.
As the move towards intelligent buildings has gathered momentum, so we have also been seeing ever more a growing demand for
a wider range of independently controllable building related functions.
Against this background there have also quite naturally been calls for the development of more distributed types of air conditioning
systems while at the same time taking full account of the need to use energy economically by demand matching in view of the
huge annual increases in the demand for electric power seen in recent years.
We have therefore prepared this installation manual to enable installation work to be handled confidently on the basis of a clear
understanding of the special features of this system. We have paid particular attention to points of difference in installation
procedure between this system and the more traditional package and room air conditioning system.
The manual is designed specifically to cater for those supervising installation work and concentrates on those products which are
currently on the market. Essential points which need to be taken into consideration when designing an appropriate configuration
for the system and in each of the separate installation processes have also been included.
We have also added a section covering problems which have arisen in connection with installation work undertaken to date in an
attempt to prevent the recurrence of the same problems.
Please be sure to read this manual thoroughly before starting installation work in order to ensure that all such work is carried out
with maximum efficiency and to maximum effect.
The following technical documents are also available from Daikin. Please use these documents together with this manual to
conduct efficient servicing.

2.1
Points Relating to the Performance of the Air Conditioning
Units
A number of points need to be borne in mind at the system design stage in order to ensure the mechanical
efficiency of the air conditioning units.
1. Path of refrigerant piping between outdoor and indoor units, height difference and pipe length.
„ Path of refrigerant piping should be determined such that length of piping is kept to a minimum.
„ Piping should be kept within permissible limits in terms of length and height difference.
2. Positioning of outdoor unit
„ Position such that maintenance and repairs can be carried out. (leave room for servicing)
„ Avoid reduction of airflow and short circuiting

Note:
2.4
1. The division of the work should be thoroughly clarified. (This applies particularly to work relating to the
connection of control wiring, fitting of remote controller and central control panel, boundary work on areas
such as connection of drain piping and humidification supply piping, inspection and foundation)
2. Keep a constant check on the progress of the construction work to avoid deviations from the air
conditioning work schedule.
3. For sleeve and insert work the positions of ceiling girders should be confirmed and sleeve and insert
requirement, hole diameters, positioning and numbers decided. This is particularly important in the case of
sleeves for drain piping.
Points to Bear in Mind when Preparing the Contract
Drawings
The following points should be borne in mind when preparing the contract drawings from the
original drawings and the execution drawings.
The contract drawings for the air conditioning system are blueprints for the performance of the
necessary work which are drawn up on the basis of the original drawings in such a way that a
working balance is achieved between the specific requirements of each individual aspect of the
work.
Contract Drawing
Objectives include:
„ The drawings should be easily comprehensible to those carrying out the work.
„ The contents of the drawings should not be subject to subsequent alteration.
The following is a list of the main points to be considered when preparing contract drawings for
II System and should be used as a reference during this stage of the work:

2.4.2 Main Considerations in Preparation of Control Circuit Diagrams
In addition to the design of the appropriate this system configuration it is also essential that the
control system be made amply clear. If the system is designed and installed without a clear,
comprehensive plan then problems are inevitably going to occur during the test run.
Servicing too will become much more time consuming than necessary. However, if control circuit
diagrams are prepared along with the contract drawings in order to make the total system clearly
visible then the essential points relating to the electrical connections will be easily understood, the
test run will go off without a hitch and the whole system will be rendered fully effective.

Mark each outdoor unit with a code.
Add field settings and data for outdoor units, and outdoor unit No. if using sequential start.
Add the model number of each indoor unit connected to each refrigerant circuit.
Assign each indoor unit a code.
Fill in the location of each indoor unit.
Group indoor units controlled by one or two remote controllers. (group or individual control).
Assign central group Nos. if using centralized control.
Add field settings and optional equipment for indoor units.
Add unit No. if making separate field settings for each indoor unit under group control.
With the VRV II R-410A Heat Recovery Series, unit No. is determined through automatic
addressing, therefore readout unit Nos. after activating the power.

Preparation of the
Control Circuit
Diagrams
SiUS39-506
The following sequence should be followed in order to prepare control circuit diagrams in
accordance with the system list which has already been completed:
Diagrams should be prepared for each individual outdoor unit. The outdoor unit model number
should be inserted into the diagram. (REYQ96M)
Insert name of refrigerant system. (PAC1, PAC2)
Insert name of indoor unit. (FXFQ12M→FQ12M)
Insert system name of indoor unit.
Insert installation position. (Do this when demarcation is possible)
Insert remote controller control wiring. (Group) Indicated by solid line. ........Solid line.
Insert centralized control wiring. ........Dotted line
Insert Group No. (G No. for each indoor unit with U No. 0)
The control circuit diagrams are now complete.

Positioning of the
Pipe Holes
a) The through holes for the drain piping should be positioned such that the pipes have a
downward gradient. (The gradient must be at least 1/100. The thickness of the insulating
materials must also be taken into consideration.)
b) The diameter of the through holes for the refrigerant piping should include an allowance for the
thickness of the heat insulation materials. (It is a good idea to think of the liquid and gas pipes

Method for
Replacing
Nitrogen
(Brazing)
If brazing work is carried out without passing nitrogen gas through the pipes which are being
brazed then this allows the formation of oxidation bubbles on the inside surface of the pipes. These
oxidation bubbles are then carried along inside the pipes to cause damage to various members of
the system such as valves or compressors and the system ceases to function properly.
In order to avoid this problem nitrogen is passed through the pipes while the soldering work is
being carried out. This operation is known as nitrogen replacement. (Air is replaced by nitrogen)
This is standard work practice for all brazing work.
Important points:
1. The gas used must be nitrogen (oxygen, carbon dioxide and flon should not be used.)
2. A pressure regulator must be used.
General Information
21
Installation
Covering of
Refrigerant Pipes
SiUS39-506
Covering is an extremely important operation as it prevents water, dirt or dust from getting
inside the pipes. Moisture inside the pipes was a constant source of trouble in the past. The
utmost care is required to nip this problem in the bud.
The end of each pieces of pipe must be covered. “Pinching” is the most effective method but
“taping” is an simple alternative which may be used according to the work area and term of work.

<Taping method>
Particular care should be taken during the following operations:
„ When passing copper pipe through a penetration hole (Dirt easily gets into the pipe).
„ When copper pipe is located outside (Rainwater gets in)
(Special care is needed when the pipes are standing vertically outside)

Flushing
Installation
Flushing is a method of cleaning extraneous matter out of pipes using
pressurized gas.
[3 major effects]
1. Removal of oxidation bubbles formed inside copper pipes when “nitrogen replacement is
insufficient” during soldering work
2. Removal of extraneous material and moisture from pipes when covering has been insufficient
3. Checks connections in pipes linking outdoor and indoor units (Both liquid and gas pipes)
[Example of procedure]
1. Set pressure regulator on nitrogen cylinder.
∗The gas used must be nitrogen.
(There is a danger of condensation if fleon or carbon dioxide are used and oxygen carries the
risk of explosions.)
2. Connect the charge hose from the pressure regulator to the service port on the liquid pipe side
of the outdoor unit.
3. Fit blanking plugs to all indoor units (B) other than unit A.
4. Open the main valve on the nitrogen cylinder and set the pressure regulator to 72 psi.
5. Check that the nitrogen is passing through the unit A liquid pipe.

6. Flushing.
„ Block the end of the pipe with the insulation of your hand.
↓
„ When the gas pressure becomes too great to contain remove insulation quickly. (First flush)
↓
„ Block the end of the pipe with insulation again.
↓
(Carry out second flushing)
(The nature and amount of the extraneous material inside the pipe can be checked during flushing
by placing a rag lightly over the end of the pipe. In the unlikely case that even a small quantity of
moisture is found then the inside of the pipe should be dried out thoroughly.)
Action:
1. Flush the inside of the pipe with nitrogen gas. (Until such time as the moisture disappears.)
2. Carry out a thorough vacuum drying operation. (See page 34)
Close the main valve on the nitrogen cylinder.
Repeat the above operation for unit B.
When the liquid pipe operations have been completed then do the same with the gas pipes.

Brazing
SiUS39-506
a) Brazing work should be carried out such that the final result is directed either downwards or
sideways. An upward direction should be avoided wherever possible. (to prevent leakage)
b) Liquid and gas pipe branches should always be dealt with in the specified way with attention
being paid to the direction of the fitting and its angle. (to prevent oil return or drift) For example
see page 139.
c) It is standard working practice to use the nitrogen replacement method when brazing.
Important points
1. Every effort must be made to avoid fire. (Clean area where brazing is to be performed and make
sure that fire fighting equipment and water are ready to hand.)
2. Be careful of burns.
3. Make sure that the gap between the pipe and the joint is correct. (To prevent leaks)
4. Is the pipe adequately supported?
„ As a rule the gaps between supports for horizontal piping (copper pipe) are as follows:
Copper pipe support spacing

(a) Stiffened pipe must always be annealed at least once prior to the flaring work.
(b) A pipe cutter must be used to cut the pipe. (A large pipe cutter must be used where the pipe has
a large diameter. When cutting a pipe which is too big for the pipe cutter a metal saw may be
used but care must be taken to ensure that the debris from sawing does not get into the pipe.)

New Rank Compatible Flare Tool
Compared to previous refrigerants, the components of a HFC refrigerant is small. R-410A also has a higher
pressure than other refrigerants. Therefore, in order to strengthen the intensity of the form and size of the flare
section used for R-410A (class 2) apparatus, unlike the specification of the conventional refrigerants, it was set
up with different standards.
When carrying out flare processing, use a new rank compatible flare tool or a conventional flare tool.
Flare Gauge (Adapter Corresponding to the New Rank)
When using the later, use a flare gauge to take out the pipe from the gauge bar, adjust it, and then carry out the
flare processing.

Insulation
(jointed areas)
(V0985)
Materials
The thermal insulation materials which are used must be well able to withstand the heat from the
pipes.
Example:
Heat pump type: Heat resistant polyethylene foam (heat resistance of at least 120°C)
Cooling only: Polyethylene foam (heat resistance of 100°C or more)
Essential Points
of Thermal
Insulation
The insulation of jointed areas such as the soldered, flared or flanged sections should only be
carried out after the successful completion of the air tight test.
Attention should be paid to the unit model and its operating conditions since there are occasions
when the gas and liquid pipes also need to be thermally insulated.
„ Important points
1. The thickness of the thermal insulation material must be determined in the light of the pipe
sizes.
Pipe size in. (mm)
Thickness of insulation material
φ1/4~φ1 (6.4mm~25.4mm)
φ1/2 or more (12.5mm or more)
2. It will be necessary to increase the values in the above table for top floors or where conditions
are hot and humid. (Refer to Installation manual "6-5 Pipe insulation" for more detail)
3. Where a customer supplies his own specifications then these must be adhered to.
4. Where it is anticipated that the air conditioning unit will be operated at external air temperatures
of 10°C or less then thermal insulation will also be required for the liquid pipes.

of Testing
(Maintaining

The key to successful testing is strict adherence to the following procedure:
a) The liquid and gas piping in each refrigerant system should be pressurized in turn in accordance
with the following steps. (Nitrogen gas must be used.)
„ Step 1: increase pressure to 13.05psi for 3
minutes or more
„ Step 2: increase pressure to 217psi for 5
minutes or more
„ Step 3: increase pressure to 551psi for
approx. 24 hours



Indicates existence of minor leaks
∗Increasing the system pressure to 551psi does not guarantee the identification of minor leaks if
pressure is maintained for only a short time. It is therefore recommended that the system remain
pressurized in accordance with Step 3 above for at least 24 hours.
Note:
The pressure must on no account be increased beyond 551psi.
b) Check for pressure drop
If there is no drop in pressure then the test is deemed a success.
If the pressure drops then the leak must be located. See following page.
However, if there is a change in the ambient temperature between the pressurizing stage and
the time when you check for a drop in pressure then you will have to adjust your calculations
accordingly since a change of 1°F can account for a pressure change of approximately 0.80psi.
Compensating adjustment value:
(temperature at time of pressurizing – temperature at time of checking) × 0.80
Example:

[Check 1] (Where pressure falls while carrying out Steps 1 to 3 described on previous page)
„ Check by ear......Listen for the sound of a major leak.
„ Check by hand......Check for leak by feeling around jointed sections with hand.
„ Soap and water check (∗Snoop)......Bubbles will reveal the presence of a leak.
[Check 2] (When searching for a minor leak or when there has been a fall in pressure while the
system has been fully pressurized but the source of the leak cannot be traced.)
1. Release the nitrogen until the pressure reaches 13.05psi.
2. Increase pressure to 217psi using gaseous flon gas (R-410A). (Nitrogen and flon gas mixed)
3. Search for the source of the leak using a leak detector.
4. If the source of the leak still cannot be traced then repressurize with nitrogen up to 551psi and
check again. (The pressure must not be increased to more than 551psi.)
Setup of Air-tight Test
As for the air-tight test, the setup of devices shown in the following figure is recommended with
considerations given to “vacuum drying and refrigerant additional charging”, which are operation
steps following the air-tightness test.
In order to conduct the air-tight test, with stop valves of 8.Gas side, 10.liquid side and 15.Oil
equalization piping and those of the refrigerant and vacuum pump all closed, then open the
nitrogen gas stop valve, 7.Valve A, 8.Valve B and 17. Valve C while adjusting the nitrogen gas
pressure regulating valve, thus increasing the pressure.

3.2.6 Vacuum Drying
What is vacuum
drying?
Vacuum drying is:
"The use of a vacuum pump to vaporize (gasify) the moisture (liquid) inside the pipes and expel it
leaving the pipes completely dry inside."
At 1 atm (760 mmHg) the boiling point (evaporating temperature) of water is 212°F (100°C) but if a
vacuum is created inside the pipes using a vacuum pump then the boiling point is rapidly reduced
as the degree of the vacuum is increased. If the boiling point is reduced to a level below that of the
ambient temperature then the moisture in the pipes will evaporate.
<Example>
When outside temperature is 44.9°F (7.2°C)
As shown in the table on the right, the degree
of vacuum must be lowered below
–752mmHg.

The evacuation of air conditioner piping provides the following effects.
1. Vacuum drying
2. Removes air and nitrogen (used in air-tightness test) from the inside of pipes.
Therefore, it is necessary to ensure that the both purposes have been achieved in the vacuum
drying operation.
Key points
Lower the degree of vacuum to below –14.6psi (–755mmHg)

Choosing a
Vacuum Pump
General
Refrigerant piping content volume of the VRVII R-410A Series is larger than the VRV Inverter
Series, and consequently takes more time for vacuum drying. If you have time to spare, you may
use the same vacuum pump, but if you want to save time, you will have to use a pump with higher
exhaust velocity (exhaust volume).
The Necessity for Counter Flow Prevention
After the vacuum process of the refrigerant cycle, the inside of the hose will be vacuumed after
stopping the vacuum pump, and the vacuum pump oil may flow back. Moreover, if the vacuum
pump stops during the operation by some reason, the same thing happens.
In such cases, different oil mixes in the HFC system refrigerant apparatus cycle, and becomes the
cause of a refrigerant circuit trouble. Therefore, in order to prevent the counter flow from the
vacuum pump, a check valve is needed.

1. Vacuum pump performance
The 2 most import things for determining vacuum pump performance are as follows:
(1) Exhaust velocity
(2) Degree of vacuum
(1) Exhaust velocity
Exhaust volume is usually expressed as l/min or m³/h. The larger the number, the faster vacuum
id achieved.
Generally speaking, the faster the exhaust velocity, the larger and heavier the vacuum pump
itself is.
Commercially available vacuum pumps (exhaust velocity of 20 - 30 l/min) usually take an
extremely long time to achieve vacuum. (We recommend a vacuum pump of approx. 60 - 100 l/
min.)
(2) Degree of vacuum
Ultimate vacuum varies largely according to use of the vacuum pump. Vacuum pumps used for
vacuum forming cannot be used for vacuum drying. (A vacuum pump with a high degree of
vacuum is required.)
When selecting a vacuum, you should select one which is capable of achieving 0.2 Torr of
ultimate vacuum.
Degree of vacuum is expressed in Torr, micron, mmHg, and Pascal (Pa). The units correlate as
follows:

2. Vacuum pump maintenance
Because of their nature, most vacuum pumps contain large amounts of oil which lubricates
bearings, etc., and functions to enhance airtightness of pistons. When using a vacuum pump to
discharge air from refrigerant piping, moisture in the air tends to get mixed in with the oil. You must
therefore change oil periodically and make sure the proper oil level is maintained. (Perform periodic
inspections in accordance with the operating instructions.)
36
General Information
SiUS39-506
Installation
3. Degree of vacuum measurement
An extremely accurate vacuum gauge is required to test degree of vacuum. You cannot accurately
measure degree of vacuum with the compound gauge on the gauge manifold. A Pirani vacuum
gauge is required to measure degree of vacuum accurately. Because Pirani gauges are very
sensitive and require extreme care when using, they are not very suitable for use in the field. You
should therefore use the Pirani gauge to calibrate the attached vacuum gauge on the gauge
manifold and the degree of vacuum of the vacuum pump.
4. Calibration method
1. Connect a Pirani vacuum gauge and the gauge manifold vacuum gauge (0 - 760 mmHg) to the
vacuum pump at the same time, and run the pump for about 3 minutes.
2. Make sure the reading of the Pirani vacuum gauge is 5 Torr (667 Pa) or less. The reading of
conventional vacuum pumps lowers to about 0.2 Torr.
If the reading is not 5 Torr or less, check the vacuum pump oil. (Oil is low in many cases.)
3. Check the attached gauge on the gauge manifold. Adjust the gauge if the reading is not exactly
correct.
4. Adjust the gauge manifold valve so that the Pirani vacuum gauge reads 5 Torr.
5. Mark the position indicated by the gauge manifold gauge with an oil based ink pen.
6. Use the mark of the gauge manifold as a target when vacuuming in the field.

Vacuum Drying
Procedure
There are two vacuum drying methods and the appropriate one should always be chosen to
conform with individual local conditions.
[Normal vacuum drying]........The standard method
[Operational steps]
1. Vacuum drying (1st time): Connect a manifold gauge to the service port of the liquid or gas pipe
and operate the vacuum pump for at least 2 hours.
(The degree of vacuum produced should be in excess of –14.61psi (–755 mmHg))
If after 2 hours the vacuum produced has not exceeded 5 mmHg then either there is moisture in
the pipe or there is a leak. Operate the vacuum pump for a further hour.
If, even after 3 hours, the vacuum has not reached –14.61 (–755 mmHg) then check the system
for a leak.
2. Carry out maintained vacuum test.
Produce a vacuum in excess of –14.61psi (–755 mmHg) and do not release it for an hour or
more. Check the vacuum gauge to make sure that it has not risen. (If the gauge does rise then
there is still moisture in the pipe or there is a leak somewhere.)
3. Additional charge of refrigerant.
Connect the charging cylinder to the liquid pipe service port and charge with the required
amount of refrigerant.
4. Open stop valve to the full.
Open the stop valves on the liquid and the gas pipes to the full.
Note:
Vacuums should be produced in both the liquid and the gas pipes.
(Because there are a large number of functional components in the indoor unit which cut off the
vacuum mid–way through)

Special vacuum drying
This vacuum drying method is selected when there is a suspicion that there may be moisture in the
pipes.
For example:
„ When moisture was discovered during the refrigerant pipe flushing operation
„ When there is a risk of condensation forming inside the pipes during periods of heavy rainfall
„ When there is a risk of condensation forming inside the pipes if the refrigeration pipe works
takes long time
„ When there is a risk that rainwater may have entered the pipes during installation
The special vacuum drying method is the same as the standard method except that nitrogen is
introduced into the pipes to break the vacuum on one or more occasions during the course of the
operation.
[Operational steps]
1. Vacuum drying (1st time): 2 hours
2. Vacuum breaking (1st time): Use nitrogen to raise pressure to +7.25psi (+0.05MPa).
(Since the nitrogen gas used to break the vacuum is dry nitrogen this process serves only to
enhance the overall drying effect of the vacuum drying operation itself.
However, since the effectiveness of this process is severely impaired by a high moisture level
inside the pipes, the utmost care is required during installation to see that water does not enter
or form inside the refrigerant pipes.)
3. Vacuum drying (2nd time): Operate the vacuum pump for at least 1 hour.
(Observations: Degree of vacuum has reached –14.61psi (–755 mmHg). If the degree of
vacuum has not reached –14.61psi (–755 mmHg) after 2 hours or more then repeat the
operations at 2 (vacuum breaking) and 3 (vacuum drying) above.)
4. Carry out maintained vacuum test: 1 hour

Important points
1. The results of all calculations must be recorded. (Make a list.)
2. The refrigerant will need to be additionally charged whenever the distance between the outdoor
unit and the most distant indoor unit is more than 10m.
3. The additional charging operation should be carried out by input of liquid from Service port at
liquid stop valve following completion of the vacuum drying operation.
4. When the additional charging operation cannot be satisfactorily completed use the action of the
compressor to complete the additional charging during the test run.
Refrigerant
Charging
Instructions
HFC401A are Quasi-azeotropic* refrigerants. Therefore, these refrigerants must be charged in the
liquid state. When charging the refrigerant into equipment from the refrigerant cylinder, turn the
refrigerant cylinder upside down.
Important: Make sure that the refrigerant (liquid) is taken out from the bottom part of the refrigerant
cylinder. Do not take out the refrigerant (gas) at the upper part of the refrigerant cylinder for
charging.
Caution
General Information
Since some refrigerant cylinders differ in the internal mechanism, it is necessary to examine the
cylinder carefully. (Some cylinders have a siphon tube to eliminate the need for turning it upside
down.)

<*Non-azeotropic refrigerants or Quasi-azeotropic refrigerants>
When a refrigerant is a mixture of two or more types with different evaporation temperature, it is
called a non-azeotropic refrigerant. If all refrigerant components evaporate at the same
temperature, the mixture is called an azeotropic refrigerant.
If a non-azeotropic refrigerant is charged into equipment in the gaseous state, the refrigerant
components that evaporate sooner than others enter the equipment, and the refrigerant that
evaporate after others remain in the refrigerant cylinder.
*Quasi-azeotropic mixture refrigerant: mixture of two or more refrigerants having similar boiling
points.
Caution items
The following devices designed for R-22 cannot be used to charge the new refrigerants. Be sure to
use the devices specifically designed for the new refrigerants.

1. It is standard work practice to make connections to the main pipe from above. The pipe down
from the combination should be as large as possible.
2. The pipework should be kept as short as possible and the number of indoor units per group kept
to a minimum.
Use of an
Auxiliary Drain
Hose (Flexible)
If a drain pan made of polystyrene foam is used then an auxiliary drain hose (flexible) is also
essential. A flexible drain hose permits the drain socket and drain pipe to be connected without
difficulty and prevents any undue strain being placed on the drain pan.
Important points
1. The drain pipe should be at least equal in size to that of the indoor unit.
2. The drain pipe is thermally insulated to prevent the formation of condensation inside the pipe.
3. The drain up mechanism should be fitted before the indoor unit is installed and when the
electricity has been connected some water should be added to the drain pan and the drain
pump checked to see that it is functioning correctly.
4. All connections should be secure. (Special care is needed with PVC pipe)
The use of a colored adhesive with PVC pipes will help you to remember to connect them up.)

3.2.10 Electrical Work
Control Wiring
Note:
1. Compatible types of wire
Wiring Specifications
Wiring Type
Sheathed Wire (2 wire)
Size
AWG18-16 (0.75~1.25 mm²)
1. Sheathed wire may be used for transmission wirings, but they do not comply with EMI
(Electromagnetic lnterference) (EN55014). When using sheathed wire. EMI must conform to
Japanese standards stipulated in the Electric Appliance Regulatory Act. (If using a sheathed
wire, the grounding shown in the figure on the left is unnecessary.)
2. Problems arising from the use of unsuitable cable
a) When cable less than 0.75 mm² is used
Where the control wiring is particularly long the transmission signals may, for example, become
unstable and the terminal relay cease to function. (Reduced voltage) The control system may
become unduly subject to noise interference.
b) When cable more than 1.25 mm² is used
When wiring indoor units together, the terminal block will not be able to accommodate 2 cables
simultaneously if the cables are larger than 1.25 mm².
c) For multi-core cable
The greater play between wires, the more the transmitted wave is distorted and transmission
destabilized.
d) In the case of a remote controller with a three way selector for cooling, heating and ventilation,
twin core cable should be used when the ventilation mode is not required and three core cable
should be used when three way selection is required.
e) Since there is a considerable risk of mixing high (220 to 240V) and low voltage in the case of, for
example, a PCB for remote control, multiple core cable must not be used.
(Internal wiring regulations and dielectric strengths of cables are relevant here.)
f) Other important points
1. The refrigerant circuit and the indoor/outdoor connecting cables must correspond exactly.
2. A suitable gap must be left between the control cables and the power supply cables where
these are laid alongside each other. (See "Separation of control and power supply cables" on
page 57)
General Information
55
Installation
SiUS39-506
Power Supply
(Cabling of Main
Power Supply)
1. Choosing a circuit breaker
The power supply work must conform to local regulations. In Japan, the relevant regulations are the
MITI ordinance determining technical standards for electrical equipment, and the Internal Wining
Provisions.
a) The indoor unit circuit breakers
„ In accordance with the provisions for internal wiring (JEAC8001-1986), power may be supplied
by means of crossover lines between the indoor units in a single system branch circuit.
Branch circuit facility (Internal wiring provisions
305-2)
The motors must be set up with a dedicated branch
circuit for each unit. However, where they
correspond to any of the following situations, this
limitation does not apply.
When used in a 15A branch circuit of a 20A
circuit breaker branch circuit
Note: It is recommended that the total rated
capacity of the motors set up in a 15A branch circuit
or a 20A circuit breaker branch circuit should be no
more than 2.2kW.
When using high static pressure indoor units the fan motors must have a large capacity. Single
phase 220~240V branch circuits are therefore required for each indoor unit.
Example: Up to 10 × 2.5HP indoor units or 5 × 5HP indoor units can be wired together.
b) The outdoor unit circuit breaker
„ A separate circuit breaker must be fitted for each unit.
„ The motors incorporated into air conditioning system compressors are treated as special motors
under the internal wiring provisions. The values which apply to normal motors are thus
somewhat variance with those which apply to such compressor motors. You are recommended
to adhere strictly to the procedures laid down in the technical materials included in, for example,
the system design manuals.
Calculation of load (Refer to local regulation.)
With respect to the calculation of load for motors with special applications such as elevator, air
conditioner and refrigerator motors, not only must the rated current be shown on the name plate of
the said motor or piece of apparatus but it must also included all special characteristics or
applications.
Note:
56
The rated current for package air conditioners which use special purpose built-in compressor
motors in their compressors in 1.2 times the operating current shown on the name plate.
General Information
SiUS39-506
Installation
2. Cable size
The thickness of the cables in the circuits (branch circuits) providing the main power supply to each
item of apparatus must satisfy the following conditions:
1. To have a current tolerance of 40% or more of the rated current of the overcurrent circuit
breaker (wiring circuit breaker, etc.).
2. To have a current tolerance of 125% or more of the rated current in cases where the rated
current of the apparatus is 50A or less.
3. To have a current tolerance of 110% or more of the rated current in cases where the rated
current of the apparatus is more than 50A.
4. To satisfy voltage drop standards.
3. Separation of control and power supply cables
„ If control and power cables are run alongside each other then there is a strong likelihood of
operational faults developing due to interference in the signal wiring caused by electrostatic and
electromagnetic coupling.
The table below indicates our recommendations as to the appropriate spacing of control and
power cables where these are to be run side by side.
Current capacity of power cable
10A or less
100V or more
Note:
Spacing
12" (300mm)
50A
20" (500mm)
100A
40" (1000mm)
100A or more
60" (1500mm)
1. The figures are based on an assumed length of parallel cabling up to 33’ (100m). For lengths in
excess of 33’ (100m) the figures will have to be recalculated in direct proportion to the additional
length of cable involved.
2. If the power supply waveform continues to exhibit some distortion the recommended spacing in
the table should be increased.
If the cables are laid inside conduits then the following points must also be taken into account when
grouping various cables together for introduction into the conduits.
1. Power cables (including power supply to the air conditioner) and signal cables must not be laid
inside the same conduit. (Power cables and signal cables must each have their own individual
conduits.)
2. In the same way, when grouping the cables, power and signal cables should not be bunched
together.
„ Important points
1. Earthing
„ Have the indoor and outdoor units both been earthed?
∗ If the apparatus is not properly earthed then there is always a risk of electric shocks. The
earthing of the apparatus must be carried out by a qualified person.

For the air conditioners with no setting for the function (same as factory setting), the units will be left
in the stop condition when the power supply is reset automatically after power failure reset or the
main power supply is turned on again after once turned off. However, for the air conditioners with
the setting, the units may start automatically after power failure reset or the main power supply
turned on again (return to the same operation condition as that of before power failure).
For the above reasons, when the unit is set enabling to utilize “Auto restart function after power
failure reset”, utmost care should be paid for the occurrence of the following situation.
Caution 1. The air conditioner starts operation suddenly after power failure reset or the
main power supply turned on again. Consequently, the user might be
surprised (with question for the reason why).
2. In the service work, for example, turning off the main power switch during the
unit is in operation, and turning on the switch again after the work is
completed start the unit operation (the fan rotates).

The number of terminal blocks for No. 12 and 13 is expressed as an
8-digit binary number, which is the combination of four upper, and
four lower digits for No. 12 and 13 respectively. (0 - 128)
In d the address for No. 12 is 0101, the address for No. 13 is 0110,
and the combination of the two is 01010110 (binary number), which
translates to 64 + 16 + 4 + 2 = 86 (base 10 number). In other words,
the number of terminal block is 86..
See the preceding page for a list of data, etc. for No. 0 - 22.

Caution for Refrigerant Leaks
(Points to note in connection with refrigerant leaks)
5.1.1 Introduction
The installer and system specialist shall secure safety against leakage according to local
regulations or standards. The following standards may be applicable if local regulations are
not available.
The VRV System, like other air conditioning systems, uses R-410A as refrigerant. R-410A itself is
an entirely safe non-toxic, non-combustible refrigerant. Nevertheless care must be taken to ensure
that air conditioning facilities are installed in a room which is sufficiently large. This assures that the
maximum concentration level of refrigerant gas is not exceeded, in the unlikely event of major leak
in the system and this in accordance to the local applicable regulations and standards.
5.1.2 Maximum concentration level
The maximum charge of refrigerant and the calculation of the maximum concentration of refrigerant
is directly related to the humanly occupied space in to which it could leak.
The unit of measurement of the concentration is lb/ft3 (the weight in Ib. of the refrigerant gas in 1ft3
volume of the occupied space).
Compliance to the local applicable regulations and standards for the maximum allowable
concentration level is required.
1. direction of the refrigerant flow
2. room where refrigerant leak
has occurred (outflow of all
the refrigerant from the
system)
1
2
Pay a special attention to the place, such as a basement, etc. where refrigerant can stay,
since refrigerant is heavier than air.
5.1.3 Procedure for checking maximum concentration
Check the maximum concentration level in accordance with steps 1 to 4 below and take whatever
action is necessary to comply.
1. Calculate the amount of refrigerant (Ib.) charged to each system separately.
amount of refrigerant in a
single unit system (amount of
refrigerant with which the
system is charged before
leaving the factory)
Note:
+
additional charging amount
(amount of refrigerant added
locally in accordance with the
length or diameter of the
refrigerant piping)
=
total amount of
refrigerant (Ib.) in
the system
„ Where a single refrigerant facility is divided into 2 entirely independent refrigerant systems then
use the amount of refrigerant with which each separate system is charged.
2. Calculate the smallest room volume (ft3)
Incase like the following, calculate the volume of (A), (B) as a single room or as the smallest
room.

1. opening between rooms
2. partition

(Where there is an opening without a door or where there are openings above and below the
door which are each equivalent in size to 0.15% or more of the floor area.)
3. Calculating the refrigerant density using the results of the calculations in steps 1 and 2 above.
total volume of refrigerant in the refrigerant system
size (ft3) of smallest room in which there is an
≤
maximum concentration level (Ib./ft3)
indoor unit installed
If the result of the above calculation exceeds the maximum concentration level then make
similar calculations for the second then third smallest room and so until the result falls short of
the maximum concentration.
4. Dealing with the situations where the result exceeds the maximum concentration level.
Where the installation of a facility results in a concentration in excess of the maximum
concentration level then it will be necessary to revise the system.
Please consult your Daikin supplier.

Operating Noise of Indoor Units
7.1.1 Difference between Catalogue Data and Actual Noise
Operating noise differs depending on the place of measurement (room) because of the various
degrees with which the room reverberates the sound. To determine the amount of reverberation
under uniform conditions, the unit has been measured in a dead room with results having been
compiled in the below table. The actual sound produced in unit operation can be determined from
Table 1.

7.1.2 Faint Noises and Correcting Operating Noise with Respect to Faint
Noises
Faint noises are defined as peripheral sounds existing while the unit is not running, which are
picked up when measuring operating noise. If these faint noises are 10 dB or more than the noise
produced by the unit, the measured value can be taken as the operating noise of the unit. But, the
difference must be corrected if less than 10 dB, because of the effect these noises have on the
actual measured value. Also, when the sound meter remains unchanged even while the unit is
stopped, we can determine the operational noise to be at least 10 dB less than the faint noises, but
we cannot pinpoint the operating noise exactly.
For example, if the faint noises are some 65 dB and the noise produced by the unit in operation is 70 dB, the
indicated difference comes to 5 dB. Using Table 3, we recommend you correct the operating noise by about 2
dB to 68 dB.

7.1.3 Calculating Operating Noise
When two or more units are running at the same time, the amount of operating noise they produce
rises. The total amount of noise produced can be obtained ahead of time with Chart 4.
Sample calculation 1
L1 and L2 are given as compounded sounds of 50 and 49 dB respectively.
Since L1 – L2 = 50 – 49 = 1, the corrective value is 2.5, therefore 50 + 2.5 = 52.5 dB.
Sample calculation 2
When sounds of 40 dB, 38 dB, 37 dB and 40 dB are placed in order of magnitude, we obtain the
following:
40 dB, 40 dB, 38 dB, 37 dB
To start, the difference between 40 dB and 40 dB is 0, therefore we take a corrective value of 3dB and
obtain 40 + 3 = 43 dB. The compounded sound of 43 dB and 38 dB has a 5.0 dB difference, thus a
corrective value of 1.2 dB, which gives us 44.2 dB from 43 + 1.2. In the same manner, the corrective
value for 44.2 dB and 37 dB is approximately 0.7 dB, or in other words, 44.2 + 0.7 = 44.9 dB.

1. REFNET Joints
For gas and liquid branch pipes
„ Make sure that all branch pipes are fitted such that they branch either horizontally or vertically.
„ When the size of the selected field piping is different from that of branch pipe then the
connecting section should be cut with a pipe cutter as shown in the figure below.
„ When you are cutting an inlet or outlet pipe with a pipe cutter make sure that you make the cut
in the center of the connection area.
„ Branch pipes must be insulated in accordance with the handbook which comes with each kit.
2. REFNET Header
General Information

Appendix
SiUS39-506
„ When the number of indoor units to be connected to the branch pipes is less than the number of
branch pipes available for connection then cap pipes should be fitted to the surplus branches.
„ When the size of the selected field piping is different from that of branch pipe then the
connecting section should be cut with a pipe cutter as shown in the figure below.
„ When field piping is connected to the B section of the inlet/outlet pipe on the outdoor unit side of
the liquid pipe header.
„ Cut the B section with a pipe cutter as shown below and connect it to the A section.
„ Connect the flared section of the field pipe to the B section.
„ Fit the branch pipe so that the branch lies in a horizontal plane.
„ The branch pipe must be insulated in accordance with the instruction manual which comes with
each kit.
1. Use the insulator included in the kit to insulate the header.
2. Joints between insulators included in the kit and those already applied to the field piping should
be sealed with the tape which is also included in each kit.
3. Any cap pipes should also be insulated using the insulator provided with each kit and then taped
as described above.

7.10 Bad Examples and Good Examples in Installation
7.10.1 Example 1: Signal interference due to use of multiple core cable (all
model)
Situation
Although for the purposes of group control there are only 2 units per group there are transmission
malfunctions between the indoor units and the remote controller and the remote controller’s
address display is showing non-existent addresses such as 13 or 15.
Source of
Problem and
Remedial Action
Multiple core cable has been used for at least part of the interconnecting wiring between the
remote controller and the indoor units.
This has resulted in signal interference leading to a transmission malfunction.
The multiple core cable was replaced by twin core cable and the fault disappeared.
Main Points
„ Although twin core cable had been run from each unit, multiple core cable was used on the way.
„ In schools, etc., because remote controllers are often installed in a single first floor control room,
it is easier to use a multi-core cable.
„ Signal interference can result in non-existent addresses appearing on the display.
General Information
135
Appendix
SiUS39-506
7.10.2 Example 2: Mismatch between cables connecting indoor and outdoor
units and corresponding piping. (all model)
Situation
The remote controller is not showing any malfunction and the system is operating but there is no
flow of warm air from the indoor unit (in heating mode).
Source of
Problem and
Remedial Action
The connecting cables and the corresponding piping were not correctly matched.
Recabling was carried out and the fault disappeared.
Main Points
„ Special care must be taken when the pipework and cabling are carried out by different people.
„ Run each indoor unit in turn to check that the system is correctly matched.
136
General Information
SiUS39-506
Appendix
7.10.3 Example 3: Drain pipe trap shape defective
Situation
Indoor unit was fitted with a drain trap but a leak occurred during subsequent operation.
Source of
Problem and
Remedial Action
The trap was not properly shaped thus preventing it from functioning effectively as a trap and
resulting in drain leakage. The trap was reshaped and the fault disappeared.
Main Points
„ Duct types (18~48) require a drain trap.
Reason: There is resistance on the air inlet side caused by the heat exchanger and air filter and this
in turn creates negative pressure in relation to the atmospheric pressure on the discharge side. If
there is no drain trap then air will be drawn in from the drain pipe and the waste water splashed
around giving rise to the risk of water overflowing from the drain pan. To avoid this problem it is
therefore necessary to design a trap which takes account of the maximum negative pressure which
is likely to be created on the suction side.
General Information
137
Appendix
SiUS39-506
7.10.4 Example 4: Pressure down despite absence of leaks during air tight
test (all model)
Situation
In order to carry out local air tight tests on the refrigerant piping the system was pressurized via the
liquid pipe service port and after 24 hours the pressure was found to have fallen. The local
refrigerant piping alone does not lose any pressure. Maybe the gas leak is supposed to be located
in the indoor unit itself.
Source of
Problem and
Remedial Action
The system was pressurized from the liquid pipe side and the gas pipes were therefore not
pressurized. The system was then left under pressure for 24 hours but during that time gas leaked
through into the gas pipes due to internal leaks within electronic expansion valves and the gas
pressure inside the liquid pipes consequently dropped.

Heat exchanger
Fan
Electronic
Filter expansion valve Filter
Main Points
138
When carrying out air tight tests on local pipework it is essential that the system be pressurized
via both the liquid pipes and the gas pipes.

SiUS39-506
Appendix
7.10.5 Example 5: Excessive noise due to incorrect angling of REFNET joints
Situation
The noise of the refrigerant flow during defrosting is excessive.
Source of
Problem and
Remedial Action
The angle of the fittings was incorrect and needed to be rectified as shown in the following figure.
1. REFNET joints
The REFNET joints should be installed such that branches meet the main pipe either
horizontally or vertically at an angle of exactly 90 degrees.
2. REFNET header
The REFNET header is a lateral flow pipe and should be fitted so as to allow horizontal branch
fittings. (Vertical or sloping fitting is not permissible.)
Main Points
„ Reasons for using refrigerant branch kit
Fittings of REFNET joints or headers which are not carried out in strict accordance with the
principles outlined here may result in complaints relating, for example, to “poor performance” of
the system or “noisy refrigerant flow”. (To prevent unbalance flow or oil shortage)

7.10.6 Example 6: Cracks develop in field pipes due to thermal expansion and
contraction
Situation
Refrigerant piping has developed cracks in soldered points and is leaking gas.
Cause
Both ends of the pipe have been tightly fixed in place.
↓
Starting and stopping the compressor has caused temperature to vary, thus the pipes have
expanded and contracted which places stress on soldered parts.
↓
Cracks have formed because of repeated expansion and contraction.
Remedial Action
Fit the pipe with a loop as shown in the below drawing.
Main Points
„ Take thermal expansion and contraction along the spline into consideration when installing pipe
supports.
For Your
Reference
Expansion (m) = Full length × Coefficient of thermal expansion × Rise in temperature
Coefficient of thermal expansion for copper: 16.5 × 10-6
Example For a pipe length of 10 m and a rise in temperature of 50°C, expansion reaches 8.2mm.

7.10.7 Example 7: Transmission wiring between the cool/heat selector and
the outdoor unit is too close to a high voltage wire.
Situation
Heating is indicated despite having selected cooling with the cool/heat selector.
Cause and
Remedial Action
The transmission wiring between the cool/heat selector and the outdoor unit is too close to a high
voltage wire. An induced voltage is, therefore, being impressed on the transmission wiring which is
causing a heating/cooling malfunction in the outdoor unit PC board.
Bypassing the transmission wiring will allow the unit to function normally.
Main Points
„ Keep low and high voltage wiring away from each another.
7.10.8 Example 8: The centralized control group number cannot be set
(Inverter K Series).
Situation
An attempt was made to set the centralized control group number with the indoor unit remote
controller, but “00” cannot be selected in the field setting mode.
Cause
1. The central remote controller or unified ON/OFF controller is OFF.
2. The central remote controller or unified ON/OFF controller, or indoor unit is not wired to the
centralized control line (F1 & F2).
Remedial Action
Supply power to either the central remote controller or unified ON/OFF controller.
Wire the central remote controller or unified ON/OFF controller, or indoor unit to the centralized
control line.
General Information
141
Appendix
Main Points
SiUS39-506
„ When communications with the central remote controller are down, “00” cannot be selected in
the field setting mode.
„ Activate power to the central remote controller, unified ON/OFF controller and indoor unit before
setting the centralized control group number.
7.10.9 Example 9: “88
88”
88 cannot be cleared from the central remote controller.
Situation
The display on the central remote controller does not change from its initial state after turning
power ON.
Initial display of the central remote controller
Cause
1. None of the indoor units connected to the central remote controller have been given a group No.
2. The connector for setting the master controller inside the central remote controller is
disconnected.
Remedial Action
„ Set a centralized control group No. for each indoor unit with the respective remote controllers.
„ Connect the connector for setting the master controller in one of the central remote controller.
Main Points
„ If the setting for master controller has been changed, reset the power to the unit at the ON/OFF
switch or the forced reset switch of the controller.
„ Activate power to the central remote controller, unified ON/OFF controller and indoor unit before
setting the centralized control group No.
„ For details on how to set the centralized control group number, refer to the installation manual.

„ Do not use the following tools that are used with conventional refrigerants. (Gauge
manifold, charge hose, gas leak detector, reverse flow check valve, refrigerant charge
base, vacuum gauge, refrigerant recovery equipment.)
If the conventional refrigerant and refrigerator oil are mixed in the R-410A, the refrigerant may
deteriorated.
„ Never perform outdoor unit piping connection work when it is raining.
146
CAUTION
The refrigerant R-410A requires strict cautions for keeping the system clean, dry and tight.
A.Clean and dry
Foreign materials (including mineral oils such as SUNISO oil or moisture) should be prevented from
getting mixed into the system.
B.Tight
R-410A does not contain any chlorine, does not destroy the ozone layer, and does not reduce the
earth's protection against harmful ultraviolet radiation.
R-410A can contribute slightly to the greenhouse effect if it is released. Therefore we should take
special attention to check the tightness of the installation.
Read the chapter "Refrigerant piping" carefully and follow these procedures correctly.
CAUTION
Since R-410A is a mixed refrigerant, the required additional refrigerant must be charged in its liquid
state. (If the refrigerant is charged in a state of gas, its composition changes and the system will not
work properly.)
The indoor unit is for R-410A. See the catalog for indoor unit models which can be connected.
(Normal operation is not possible when connected to other units.)

6. Refrigerant Piping
CAUTION
After completing installation, be sure to open the valve.
(See 6-6 Additional refrigerant charge for details) (Operating the unit with the valve shut will
break the compressor.)
Use R-410A to add refrigerant. (The R-410A refrigerant cylinder has a pink stripe painted around it.)
All field piping must be installed by a licensed refrigeration technician and must comply with
relevant local and national regulations.
CAUTION TO BE TAKEN WHEN BRAZING REFRIGERANT PIPING
Do not use flux when brazing copper-to copper refrigerant piping.
(Particularly for the HFC refrigerant piping) Therefore, use the phosphor copper brazing filter
metal(BCuP) which does not require flux.
(Flux has extremely harmful influence on refrigerant piping systems.
For instance, if the chlorine based flux is used, it will cause pipe corrosion or, in particular, if the flux
contains fluorine, it will damage the refrigerant oil.)
Note:
„ Installation tools:
Make sure to use installation tools (gauge manifold charge hose, etc.) that are exclusively used
for R-410A installations to withstand the pressure and to prevent foreign materials (e.g. mineral
oils such as SUNISO and moisture) from mixing into the system.
(The screw specifications differ for R-410A.)
Vacuum pump (use a 2-stage vacuum pump with a non-return valve):
1. Make sure the pump oil does not flow oppositely into the system while the pump is not
working.
2. Use a vacuum pump which can evacuate to -14.6 psi.
6.1
Selection of Piping Material
1. Foreign materials inside pipes (including oils for fabrication) must be 9mg/10ft or less.
2. Use the following material specification for refrigerant pipping:
• construction material: Phosphoric acid deoxidized seamless copper for refrigerant.
• size: Determine the proper size referring to chapter “Example of connection”.
• The wall thickness of the refrigerant piping should comply with relevant local and national
regulations.
3. Make sure to use the particular branches of piping that have been selected referring to chapter
“Example of connection”.

CAUTION
SiUS39-506
Be sure to use the attached pipe when carrying out piping work in the field.
Be sure that the local piping does not touch other pipes, the bottom panel or side panel. Especially
for the bottom and side connection, be sure to protect the local piping with the provided insulation,
to prevent it from coming into contact with the casing.
Precautions when knocking out knock holes
• Be sure to avoid damaging the casing
• After knocking out the holes, we recommend you paint the edges and areas around the
edges using the repair paint to prevent rusting.
• When passing electrical wiring through the knock holes, wrap the wiring with protective tape
to prevent damage.
• Open knock holes around the 4 concave knock holes in the base frame, using a φ1/4"-bit
drill.

Mount the REFNET header so that it branches horizontally.
4. Pipe connection
• Only use the flare nuts included with the unit.
Using different flare nuts may cause the refrigerant to leak.
• Be sure to perform a nitrogen blow when brazing.
(Brazing without performing nitrogen replacement or releasing nitrogen into the piping will
create large quantities of oxidized film on the inside of the pipes, adversely affecting valves
and compressors in the refrigerating system and preventing normal operation.)
• Do not use a flux when brazing the refrigerant pipe joints.
Use phosphor copper brazing (BCup) which does not require flux.
(Using a chlorine flux may cause the pipes to corrode, and if it contains fluoride it may cause
the refrigerant lubricant to deteriorate, adversely affecting the refrigerant piping system.)

Leak Test and Vacuum Drying
The units were checked for leaks by the manufacturer.
Confirm that the valves are firmly closed before pressure test or vacuuming.
To prevent entry of any impurities and ensure sufficient pressure resistance, always use the special
tools dedicated for R-410A.
Air tight test and vacuum drying
„ Air tight test: Make sure to use nitrogen gas.
(For the service port location, refer to the "Caution" label attached on the front panel [right] of
the outdoor unit.)

Pressurize the liquid, suction gas and discharge gas pipes to 551 psi
(do not pressurize more than 551 psi). If the pressure does not drop within 24 hours, the system
passes the test. If the pressure drops, check where the nitrogen leaks from.
„ Vacuum drying: Use a vacuum pump which can evacuate to -14.6 psi.
1. Evacuate the system from the liquid, suction gas and discharge gas pipes by using a
vacuum pump for more than 2 hours and bring the system to -14.6 psi. After keeping the
system under that condition for more than 1 hour, check if the vacuum gauge rises or not. If
it rises, the system may either contain moisture inside or have leaks.
2. Following should be executed if there is a possibility of moisture remaining inside the pipe (if
piping work is carried out during the raining season or over a long period of time rainwater
may enter the pipe during work).
After evacuating the system for 2 hours, pressurize the system to 7.25psi (vacuum break)
with nitrogen gas and evacuate the system again using the vacuum pump for 1 hour to -14.6
psi (vacuum drying). If the system cannot be evacuated to -14.6 psi within 2 hours, repeat
the operation of vacuum break and vacuum drying.
Then, after leaving the system in vacuum for 1 hour, confirm that the vacuum gauge does
not rise.

Pipe Insulation
After finishing the leak test and vacuum drying, the piping must be insulated. Take into account the
following points:
„ Make sure to insulate the connection piping and refrigerant branch kits entirely.
„ Be sure to insulate the liquid-side, suction gas-side and discharge gas-side piping for the interunit piping and the refrigerant branch kits. For multiple outdoor units, always insulate the oil
pressure equalizer.
„ Not insulating them may cause leaking. (The gas piping can reach temperatures of 250°F. Be
sure the insulation used can withstand such temperatures.)
„ If you think the humidity around the cooling piping might exceed 86°F and RH80%, reinforce the
insulation on the cooling piping (at least 13/16” thick). Condensation might form on the surface
of the insulation.
„ If there is a possibility that condensation on the stop valve might drip down into the indoor unit
through gaps in the insulation and piping because the outdoor unit is located higher than the
indoor unit, etc., this must be prevented by caulking the connections, etc.

Additional Refrigerant Charge
CAUTION
Refrigerant cannot be charged until field wiring has been completed.
Refrigerant may only be charged after performing the leak test and the vacuum drying (see above).
When charging a system, care shall be taken that its maximum permissible charge is never
exceeded, in view of the danger of liquid hammer.
Charging with an unsuitable substance may cause explosions and accidents, so always ensure that
the appropriate refrigerant (R-410A) is charged.
Refrigerant containers shall be opened slowly.
Always use protective gloves and protect your eyes when charging refrigerant.
TO AVOID COMPRESSOR BREAKDOWN. DO NOT CHARGE THE REFRIGERANT MORE
THAN THE SPECIFED AMOUNT TO RAISE THE CONDENSING PRESSURE.
„ This outdoor unit is factory charged with refrigerant and depending on pipe sizes and pipe
lengths some systems require additional charging of refrigerant.
„ Charge the refrigerant to the liquid pipe in its liquid state. Since R-410A is a mixed refrigerant,
its composition changes if charged in a state of gas and normal system operation would no
longer be assured.
„ Before filling, check whether the tank has a siphon attached or not.
168
Installation Manual REYQ96MTJU
SiUS39-506
Refrigerant Piping
How to fill a tank with a siphon attached.
Fill with the tank upright. (There is a siphon tube inside, so there is no need to turn the tank
upside-down.)
Other ways of filling the tank
Fill with the tank upside-down.
„ Determine the amount of refrigerant to be added by referring to the table, write it down on the
included “Added Refrigerant” plate and attach it to the rear side of the front cover.
Note: refer to the example of connection for the amount to be added.
„ After the vacuum drying is finished, charge the additional refrigerant in its liquid state through
the liquid shutoff valve service port.
Taking into account following instructions:
1. Check that gas and liquid shutoff valves are closed.
2. Charge the specified weight of refrigerant.
„ If the outdoor unit is not in operation and the total amount cannot be charged, follow the
procedures for additional refrigerant charge shown below.
„ Make sure to use installation tools you exclusively use on R-410A installations to withstand the
pressure and to prevent foreign materials from mixing into the system.

General
„ Make sure to connect the power supply wire to the power supply terminal block and to clamp it
as shown in figure 14, chapter “Field line connection”.
„ As this unit is equipped with an inverter, installing a phase advancing capacitor not only will
deteriorate power factor improvement effect, but also may cause capacitor abnormal heating
accident due to high-frequency waves. Therefore, never install a phase advancing capacitor.
„ Keep power imbalance within 2% of the supply rating.
1. Large imbalance will shorten the life of the smoothing capacitor.
2. As a protective measure, the product will stop operating and an error indication will be made,
when power imbalance exceeds 4% of the supply rating.
„ Follow the "electrical wiring diagram" when carrying out any electrical wiring.
„ Only proceed with wiring work after blocking off all power.
„ Always ground wires. (In accordance with national regulations of the pertinent country.)
„ Do not connect the ground wire to gas pipes, sewage pipes, lightning rods, or telephone ground
wires.
• Gas pipes: can explode or catch fire if there is a gas leak.
• Sewage pipes: no grounding effect is possible if hard plastic piping is used.
• Telephone ground wires and lightning rods: dangerous when struck by lightning due to
abnormal rise in electrical potential in the grounding.
„ This unit uses an inverter, and therefore generates noise, which will have to be reduced to avoid
interfering with other devices. The outer casing of the product may take on an electrical charge
due to leaked electrical current, which will have to be discharged with the grounding.
„ Be sure to install an earth leak detector. (One that can handle higher harmonics.)
(This unit uses an inverter, which means that an earth leak detector capable handling high
harmonics in order to prevent malfunctioning of the earth leak detector itself.)
„ Earth leak detector which is especially for protecting ground-faults should be used in
conjunction with main switch or fuse for use with wiring.
„ This unit has a negative phase protection circuit. (If it operates, only operate the unit after
correcting the wiring.)

9. Caution for Refrigerant Leaks
(Points to note in connection with refrigerant leaks)
Introduction
The installer and system specialist shall secure safety against leakage according to local
regulations or standards. The following standards may be applicable if local regulations are
not available.
The VRV System, like other air conditioning systems, uses R-410A as refrigerant. R-410A itself is
an entirely safe non-toxic, non-combustible refrigerant. Nevertheless care must be taken to ensure
that air conditioning facilities are installed in a room which is sufficiently large. This assures that the
maximum concentration level of refrigerant gas is not exceeded, in the unlikely event of major leak
in the system and this in accordance to the local applicable regulations and standards.
Maximum
concentration
level
The maximum charge of refrigerant and the calculation of the maximum concentration of refrigerant
is directly related to the humanly occupied space in to which it could leak.
The unit of measurement of the concentration is lb/ft3 ( the weight in Ib. of the refrigerant gas in 1ft3
volume of the occupied space).
Compliance to the local applicable regulations and standards for the maximum allowable
concentration level is required.

2
1. direction of the refrigerant flow
2. room where refrigerant leak has occurred
(outflow of all the refrigerant from the system)
Pay a special attention to the place, such as a basement, etc. where refrigerant can stay,
since refrigerant is heavier than air.
Procedure for checking maximum concentration
Check the maximum concentration level in accordance with steps 1 to 4 below and take whatever
action is necessary to comply.
1. Calculate the amount of refrigerant (Ib.) charged to each system separately.

Note:
SiUS39-506
„ Where a single refrigerant facility is divided into 2 entirely independent refrigerant systems then
use the amount of refrigerant with which each separate system is charged.
2. Calculate the smallest room volume (ft3)
In case like the following, calculate the volume of (A), (B) as a single room or as the smallest
room.
A. Where there are no smaller room divisions
B. Where there is a room division but there is an opening between the rooms sufficiently
large to permit a free flow of air back and forth.

(Where there is an opening without a door or where there are openings above and below the
door which are each equivalent in size to 0.15% or more of the floor area.)

If the result of the above calculation exceeds the maximum concentration level then make
similar calculations for the second then third smallest room and so until the result falls short of
the maximum concentration.
4. Dealing with the situations where the result exceeds the maximum concentration level.
Where the installation of a facility results in a concentration in excess of the maximum
concentration level then it will be necessary to revise the system.
Please consult your Daikin supplier.

CAUTION
188
The refrigerant R-410A requires strict cautions for keeping the system clean, dry and tight.
A.Clean and dry
Foreign materials (including mineral oils such as SUNISO oil or moisture) should be prevented from
getting mixed into the system.
B.Tight
R-410A does not contain any chlorine, does not destroy the ozone layer, and does not reduce the
earth’s protection against harmful ultraviolet radiation.
R-410A can contribute slightly to the greenhouse effect if it is released. Therefore we should take
special attention to check the tightness of the installation.
Read the chapter “Refrigerant piping work” carefully and follow these procedures correctly.

„ Always check that the refrigerant to be used is R-410A before starting work. (If the wrong
refrigerant is used, the unit will not operate normally.)
„ Completely insulate the discharge and suction piping both liquid and gas. Not insulating them
may cause leaking or burns. Only use insulating material which is resistant to 250°F or higher. If
you think the humidity in the ceiling might exceed 86°F and RH80%, reinforce the insulation on
the cooling piping (at least 13/16’’ thick). Condensation might form on the surface of the
insulation.
CAUTION
„ Use a pipe cutter and flare suitable for R-410A.
„ Use a piping branch pipe kit selected based on the selection procedure for refrigerant branch
kits.
„ See the installation manual for the outdoor unit and other relevant technical documents for
details on refrigerant branch kit selection, maximum piping length, maximum height difference,
and maximum length after branch.
„ Apply ether oil or ester oil around the flare portions before connecting.
„ Only use the flare nuts included with the unit. Using different flare nuts may cause the
refrigerant to leak.
„ To prevent dust, moisture or other foreign matter from infiltrating the tube, either pinch the end
or cover it with tape.
„ The outdoor unit is charged with refrigerant.
„ Be sure to use both a spanner and torque wrench together when connecting or disconnecting
pipes to/from the unit. (Refer to Fig. 2)
„ When connecting the flare nut, coat the flare both inside and outside with refrigerating machine
oil and initially tighten by your hand 3 or 4 turns. (Refer to Fig. 3)
„ Refer to the Table 1 for the measurements of tightening torque and flare. Over tightening may
damage the flare.
„ Refer to Table 2 if no torque wrench is available.
Using a wrench to tighten flare nuts causes the tightening torque to suddenly grow much tighter
after a certain point. From there, tighten the nut further by the appropriate angle listed in Table
2. After this is done, make sure no gas is leaking.
„ When brazing the refrigerant piping, perform nitrogen replacement (note 1) first or perform the
brazing (note 3) while feeding nitrogen into the refrigerant piping (note 2), and finally connect
the indoor unit and BS unit using the flare or flange connections.
Notes
1. For details on nitrogen replacement, see the “VRV Installation Manual” (available at any Daikin
dealer).
2. When feeding nitrogen into the pipes while doing the brazing, the pressure-reducing valve
should be set to 2.9psi. (Refer to Fig. 5)
3. Do not use a flux when brazing the refrigerant pipe joints.
Use phosphor copper brazing (B cup) which does not require flux.
(Using a chlorine flux may cause the pipes to corrode, and if it contains fluoride it may cause the
refrigerant lubricant to deteriorate, adversely affecting the refrigerant piping system.)
„ Piping connections should be checked for gas leaks and then, referring to Fig. 4, insulated using
the included joint insulating material 3) on all liquid and gas pipes (a total of 5 locations) (Tighten
both edges with clamp 2).) Use the included joint insulating material.

2. Do not connect wires of different gauge to the same grounding terminal. Looseness in the
connection may deteriorate protection.
3. Keep transmission wiring at least 2’’ away from power supply wiring. The equipment may
malfunction if subjected to electrical (external) noise.
4. For remote controller wiring, refer to the “INSTALLATION MANUAL OF REMOTE
CONTROLLER” attached to the remote controller.
5. Never connect power supply wiring to the terminal board for transmission wiring. A mistake of
the sort could damage the entire system.
6. Use only specified wire and tightly connect wires to terminals. Be careful wires do not place
external stress on terminals. Keep wiring in neat order and so as not to obstruct other
equipment such as popping open the service cover. Make sure the cover closes tight.
Incomplete connections could result in overheating, and in worse case, electric shock or fire.
7. Use 2-core wires for branch wiring.
When wiring more than 2 indoor units and a remote controller with the same 3-core wire (or
other multi core wire), units sometimes stop unexpectedly because of trouble.
(3-core wires can be used only for the cool/heat selector)

„ Adjust the room temperature properly for a comfortable environment. Avoid excessive heating
or cooling.
„ Prevent direct sunlight from entering a room during cooling operation by using curtains or
blinds.
„ Ventilate often.
Extended use requires special attention to ventilation.
„ Keep doors and windows closed. If the doors and windows remain open, air will flow out of your
room causing a decrease in the cooling or heating effect.
„ Never place objects near the air inlet or the air outlet of the unit. It may cause deterioration in the
effect or stop the operation.
„ Turn off the main power supply switch to the unit when the unit is not used for longer periods of
time. If the switch is on, it uses electricity. Before restarting the unit, turn on the main power
supply switch 6 hours before operation to ensure smooth running. (Refer to the chapter

„ When the display shows “
” (changeover under control), it shows that this is a
slave remote controller.
„ When the cool/heat changeover remote control switch is installed and the display shows
“
” (changeover under control).
This is because cool/heat changeover is controlled by the cool/heat changeover remote control
switch. Ask your Daikin dealer where the remote control switch is installed.
7.3
Fan Operation is Possible, but Cooling and Heating do not
Work
„ Immediately after the power is turned on.
The micro computer is getting ready to operate. Wait 10 minutes.

„ The fan strength does not change even if the fan strength adjustment button in pressed.
During heating operation, when the room temperature reaches the set temperature, the outdoor
unit goes off and the indoor unit changes to whisper fan strength.
This is to prevent cold air blowing directly on occupants of the room.
The fan strength will not change even if the button is changed, when another indoor unit is in
heating operation.
7.5
The Fan Direction does not Correspond to the Setting
„ The fan direction does not correspond to the remote controller display.
The fan direction does not swing.

stop.
When the drain pump (optional accessories) is in operation, this noise is heard.
„ A “pishi-pishi” squeaking sound is heard when the system stops after heating operation.
Expansion and contraction of plastic parts caused by temperature change make this noise.
„ A low “sah”, “choro-choro” sound is heard while the indoor unit is stopped.
When the other indoor unit is in operation, this noise is heard. In order to prevent oil and
refrigerant from remaining in the system, a small amount of refrigerant is kept flowing.
Indoor unit, outdoor unit
„ A continuous low hissing sound is heard when the system is in cooling or defrost
operation.
This is the sound of refrigerant gas flowing through both indoor and outdoor units.
„ A hissing sound which is heard at the start or immediately after stopping operation or
defrost operation.
This is the noise of refrigerant caused by flow stop or flow change.

Precautions for New Refrigerant (R-410A)
Service Tools
R-410A is used under higher working pressure, compared to previous refrigerants (R-22,R-407C).
Furthermore, the refrigerating machine oil has been changed from Suniso oil to Ether oil, and if oil
mixing is occurred, sludge results in the refrigerants and causes other problems. Therefore, gauge
manifolds and charge hoses that are used with a previous refrigerant (R-22,R-407C) can not be
used for products that use new refrigerants.
Be sure to use dedicated tools and devices.
