This installation manual is only for the branch box installation. In installing the indoor units and outdoor units, refer to the installation manual attached to
each unit.
1. Safety precautions
► Before installing the unit, make sure you read all the “Safety precautions”.
► Please report to your supply authority or obtain their consent before
connecting this equipment to the power supply system.
Warning:
Describes precautions that must be observed to prevent danger of injury or
death to the user.
Caution:
Describes precautions that must be observed to prevent damage to the unit.
Warning:
• Ask a dealer or an authorized technician to install the unit.
• For installation work, follow the instructions in the Installation Manual and
use tools and pipe components specifically made for use with refrigerant
specified in the outdoor unit installation manual.
• The unit must be installed according to the instructions in order to minimize
the risk of damage from earthquakes, typhoons, or strong winds. An incorrectly installed unit may fall down and cause damage or injuries.
• The unit must be securely installed on a structure that can sustain its
weight.
• If the air conditioner is installed in a small room, measures must be taken
to prevent the refrigerant concentration in the room from exceeding the
safety limit in the event of refrigerant leakage. Should the refrigerant leak
and cause the concentration limit to be exceeded, hazards due to lack of
oxygen in the room may result.
• Ventilate the room if refrigerant leaks during operation. If refrigerant comes
into contact with a flame, poisonous gases will be released.
• All electric work must be performed by a qualified technician according to
local regulations and the instructions given in this manual.
• Use only specified cables for wiring.
• The terminal block cover panel of the unit must be firmly attached.
• Use only accessories authorized by Mitsubishi Electric and ask a dealer or
an authorized technician to install them.
After installation work has been completed, explain the “Safety Precautions,” use,
and maintenance of the unit to the customer according to the information in the
Operation Manual and perform the test run to ensure normal operation. Both the
Installation Manual and Operation Manual must be given to the user for keeping.
These manuals must be passed on to subsequent users.
: Indicates a part which must be grounded.
Warning:
Carefully read the labels affixed to the main unit.
• The user should never attempt to repair the unit or transfer it to another location.
• After installation has been completed, check for refrigerant leaks. If refrigerant leaks into the room and comes into contact with the flame of a heater or
portable cooking range, poisonous gases will be released.
• Be sure to connect the power supply cords and the connecting wires for the
indoor units, outdoor units, and branch boxes directly to the units (no intermediate connections). Intermediate connections can lead to communication
errors if water enters the cords or wires and causes insufficient insulation
to ground or a poor electrical contact at the intermediate connection point.
(If an intermediate connection is necessary, be sure to take measures to
prevent water from entering the cords and wires.)
Caution:
• Make sure that the refrigerant pipes are well insulated to prevent condensation. Incomplete insulation may cause condensation on the surface of
pipes, wetting of the ceiling, floor and other important properties.
• Make sure that the drainage pipe is carried out correctly following this manual and that it is insulated in order to prevent condensation. Any deficiency
caused by piping may result in water leakage, wetting of the
ceiling, floor and other personal properties.
2. Selecting a location for installation
* The branch box is only for indoor use.
Please attach the special optional cover (PAC-AK350CVR-E) to install the
branch box in the outdoors.
• Ensure that the branch box is installed in a location which facilitates servicing
and maintenance. (ensure that the required maintenance hole or service space
is available).
• Do not install near bedrooms. The sound of refrigerant flowing through
the piping may sometimes be audible.
• Ensure that it is located where noise in operation will not be a problem.
After power is supplied or after an operation stop for a while, a small
clicking noise may be heard from the inside of the branch box. The electronic expansion valve is opening and closing. The unit is not faulty.
• Determine the route of refrigerant piping, drain piping, and electrical wiring beforehand.
• Ensure that the location of the installation is such that the length of refrigerant
piping is within the specified limits.
• Ensure that the unit is out of reach of children at least 1.8 m above the floor.
• Do not install in location that is hot or humid for long periods of time.
• Ensure that the branch box is installed above the ceiling of corridor, bath room,
etc., where persons are not regularly there (Avoid installing at around center of
the room.) for maintenance.
• Ensure that the location of the installation is such that the down-gradient of the
drain piping is greater than 1/100.
* Ensure that the unit is installed in a location able to support its weight.
Warning:
Ensure that the unit is installed firmly in a location able to support its weight.
If the installation is of insufficient strength the unit may fall, resulting in injury.

9. Electrical work
Warning:
In case of A-control wiring, there is high voltage potential on the S3 terminal caused by electrical circuit design that has no electrical insulation between power
line and communication signal line. Therefore, please turn off the main power supply when servicing. And do not touch the S1, S2, S3 terminals when the power
is energized. If isolator should be used between outdoor unit and branch box/indoor unit and branch box, please use 3-poles type.

Be sure to connect the outdoor-branch box/indoor-branch box connecting cables directly to the units (no intermediate connections).
Intermediate connections can lead to communication errors if water enters the cables and causes insufficient insulation to ground or a poor electrical contact at the intermediate connection point.
10. Test run
• Refer to the “Test run” section of the installation manual of the indoor units and outdoor unit.
• When installation of the indoor unit, branch box, and outdoor unit is complete, begin test run to check for water leaks in the branch box.
• After power is supplied or after an operation stop for a while, a small clicking noise may be heard from the inside of the branch box. The electronic expansion valve is opening and closing. The unit is not faulty.
• Be sure to perform the test run for each indoor unit. Make sure each indoor unit operates properly following the installation manual attached to the unit.
• If you perform the test run for all indoor units at once, you cannot detect any erroneous connection, if any, of the refrigerant pipes and the indoor/outdoor unit connecting
wires.
