The Heat Pump Warm Air Curtain System consists of :• a Thermoscreens 'PHVR Air Curtain' fitted with a PAC-IF010 Mitsubishi Electric
Interface PCB
• a Mitsubishi Electric 'Mr Slim Outdoor Unit'
• a Thermoscreens 'Manual Room Control' for the manual control option by the occupant
Refer to Mitsubishi Electric if the air curtain is to be controlled via a Building Management
System (BMS) or Centralised Controller. Do not install Manual Room Control and
BMS/Centralised Control components together, install either one or the other.
A communications link is supplied to the Thermoscreens Heat Pump Air Curtain from the
Mitsubishi Electric Outdoor Unit. This link provides control of the heat output of the air curtain
and tells the air curtain when the outdoor unit is in defrost mode so auxiliary electric element
heaters (if specified) can provide partial heat back-up during the few minutes of defrost.
The Air Curtain requires a permanent 3 phase electrical supply (3L+N+E) from a local
switched spur to provide power to the defrost cycle electric heating elements, the air curtain
fans and the Mitsubishi Electric Interface PCB. If the defrost cycle electric elements are not
required they can be permanently disconnected, see 'Electrical Connections', and a 1 phase
electrical supply (1L+N+E) used instead.
High and Low Output in this document refers to the heat pump heating capacity of the Air
Curtain, not to any electrical rating.

INSTALLATION OF THE HEAT PUMP AIR CURTAIN
The air curtain is designed to be recessed within ceiling voids or bulkheads within a
building and located horizontally over a doorway. It must not be installed outside of
the building. The air curtain is intended for use as a heating only unit.
Location
The air curtain must be mounted so the recessed
grille is between 1.8m minimum and 3.5m maximum
above floor level and situated as close to the doorway
as possible. The air discharge section of the recessed
grille must be nearest to the doorway and the Air Inlet
section furthest from the doorway. Beware of doorway
top edges, structural beams, door opening/closure
devices, etc. which may interfere with the air stream
and affect the location of the unit.
Air Inlet
Air

DOORWAY
Ensure there will be adequate clear space above the top of the unit within the ceiling
void to safely allow for pipework brazing operations.
The PHVR Recessed Heat Pump air curtain has a rectangular air ventilation hole with
Void Filter on one side of the unit, see photo of unit on Page 3. This air ventilation hole will
be inside the ceiling void once the air curtain is installed and air from the void needs to
enter it for the correct operation of the unit. There must be a clearance gap of 80mm
minimum between this ventilation hole and any obstruction/bulkhead within the ceiling void
to allow ventilation air from the void to easily enter the air curtain. Furthermore, the ceiling
void must be sufficiently large and freely ventilated so there will be an adequate supply of
ventilation air (m3/hr) to the unit (see table below). If the ceiling void is enclosed around
the air curtain it will need an air ventilation grille of effective free area (cm2) as given in the
table below and an adequate air path within the void for air to enter the rectangular air
ventilation hole.

Ceiling Suspension
Make the cut-out in the ceiling to the dimensions given
in Figure 1, overleaf being as accurate as possible.
The air curtain can be manoeuvred straight up through
the ceiling cut-out. Alternatively the ceiling can be
fitted after the air curtain is installed. Bear in mind it
will be necessary to carry out pipework brazing
operations above the air curtain once it is located in
position. Ensure there is sufficient height clearance
within the ceiling void to do this.

Air Curtain
Four of the threaded rods (the two at each end of the unit) enter the casing from above
and are attached to fixing brackets near the bottom of the unit (see photo above –
looking up into the air curtain). The two centre threaded rods (on PHV1500 and
PHV2000 units) are attached to the top face of the casing.
Ensure each of the threaded rods is secured onto a suitable structure that can support
the weight of the unit (see table above)*. When fitting the threaded rod ensure that it
does not interfere with internal components. Threaded rod should engage into fixing
holes by a minimum of 20mm and locking nuts fitted to prevent the rod rotating and
coming away from its fixing point.
Note: When installing the air curtain ensure that the underside of the casing is
between 40mm and 65mm above the exposed bottom face of the ceiling
tile/plasterboard (see Figure 1). The recessed grille and other air curtain
components have adjustment within this range, although aim to achieve the
minimum 40mm if possible.
*It is the sole responsibility of the installer to ensure that the building fixing points and
suspension system used are suitable for the air curtain being installed.

Fitting the Recessed Grille
The recessed grille consists of a frame and grille core
with filter attached to it.
Fix the four fixing brackets to the grille frame using an
M4 screw to fit each fixing bracket. Note which fixing
brackets go where (see photo), there are two shapes.
Less angled bracket
More angled
bracket
Remove the grille core from the grille frame by
unfastening the two conical bolts fitted at each end of
the grille core using an 8mm spanner.
Then push the grille core sideways against the spring
loaded pins on one side and the grille core with filter
now comes clear of its frame.
Note: The grille core with filter attached will still be
tethered to the frame via safety cords and will
hang down on these cords.
Locate the four M6 bolts that will hold the grille fixing brackets to the air curtain (two inside
each end of the unit) and remove these M6 bolts. Lift the frame into position so the air
discharge section of the grille will align with the air discharge vanes from the air curtain
(see Figure 1 and photos on Page 3). Screw an M6 bolt through the slot in each grille
fixing bracket until all four are located in place. Adjust the height of the grille frame (via the
slots in the fixing brackets) so the frame fits neatly against the cut-out in the ceiling.
Tighten each M6 bolt in place locking the grille frame in the correct position up against the
underside of the finished ceiling.
The grille core will now be hanging down on its safety
cords exposing all the components up inside the air
curtain. Within the air curtain there are sliding air
separator plates, two on the PHV2000 and one on the
PHV1500 and PHV1000. These need to be adjusted up
or down to stop the discharge air re-circulating back into
the air curtain. Release the M6 bolts at each end of the
plate, extend the sliding plate down so it will just touch
the topside of the grille along its whole length when the
grille core is fitted and tighten the bolts (see photo and Figure 1). It is necessary to
temporarily fit the grille core to gauge the required height of the air separator plate(s).
Re-fit the grille core by locating each spring loaded pin in its locating hole, push against
the spring loaded pins so the fixed pins at the other side of the grille core locate in their
fixing holes in the frame. Tighten and secure the conical bolts fitted at each end of the
grille core to lock it in position.
Note: Access for electrical connections and all servicing is by removing the grille core.
Once work on the ceiling is finished remove the protective plastic film from the recessed
grille frame.

It is intended that refrigerant pipe connections to the air curtain are made using brazed
joints and these must be carried out in a professional and safe manner. If installation
pipe sizes for the discharge (gas) line and liquid line are different from the pipe
connection sizes on the air curtain, suitable pipe reducers must be used for the
connection. R410a refrigerant systems can operate at pressures up to 610 psi (c. 42
Bar). These brazed joints may well be located in a public area and a weakness leading
to an explosion could be extremely dangerous. The air curtain with its coil is
9901030-2
Page 8 of 23
manufactured in accordance with the Pressure Equipment Directive and the installation
must be carried out to a good standard of workmanship. Use a heat sink on the copper
pipes when brazing to reduce the transfer of heat to the inside of the air curtain where
sensitive components are located.
To gain access inside the Air Curtain
To gain access for connection of the electrical supply, controls wiring and to work on the
unit during commissioning it is necessary to remove the grille core of the recessed grille.
Remove the grille core from the grille frame by
unfastening the two conical bolts fitted at each end of
the grille core using an 8mm spanner.
Then push the grille core sideways against the spring
loaded pins on one side and the grille core with filter
now comes clear of its frame.
Note: The grille core with filter attached will still be
tethered to the frame via safety cords and will
hang down on these cords.
Electrical Supply to the Air Curtain
This must be carried out AFTER the connection of the refrigerant pipework. All
electrical wiring and connections MUST be carried out by a competent qualified
electrician in accordance with the latest edition of the IEE wiring regulations
and/or local statutory regulations. (see also Wiring Diagram on Page 12)
• A local isolator having a contact separation of at least 3mm on all poles must be
fitted in the electrical supply to the air curtain and located in an accessible position
adjacent to the unit. 1 phase if defrost electric heaters are not required. 3 phase if
defrost electric heaters are required.
• The appliance must be connected using cables having an appropriate temperature
rating (heat resistant).
• Ensure that the supply cables, circuit breakers and other electrical installation
equipment are correctly sized for the air curtain being installed. See Table
overleaf.
• A 20mm size cable gland or conduit connector should be used for the Electrical
Supply into the air curtain.
• This appliance must be Earthed.

If the defrost electric heaters are to be disabled this can be
done by disconnecting the neutral wire (blue or purple) from
terminal A2 on the contactor inside the air curtain. The
disconnected wire should be terminated safely into unused
auxiliary terminal 14NO as shown in the adjacent picture, or
into a suitable terminal block (see also wiring diagram on
Page 12).
Note: If the defrost electric heaters are disconnected,
discharge air temperatures could be very cold, approximately
6ºC. Defrost times could also be extended.
Wiring to the air curtain should be carried out in accordance with the wiring diagram on
Page 12 and IEE Regulations. The figure below shows the completed wiring for a 3
phase electrical supply if the defrost electric heaters are required.
1) Connection from Mitsubishi Electric
Outdoor Unit
Connections to terminals S2 and S3 provide
a communications link between the
Mitsubishi Electric Outdoor Unit and the Air
Curtain. S1 in the Mitsubishi Electric Outdoor
Unit is not used at all for this Air Curtain
Indoor Unit.
2) Connecting a 400V/3ph/50Hz supply
Connect to terminals L1, L2, L3, N and E with
a 3-phase electrical supply. This will power
the electric heating elements during the
defrost cycle, air curtain fans and the
Mitsubishi Electric interface pcb.
Connecting a 230V/1ph/50Hz supply
Connect to terminals L1, N and E with a 1phase electrical supply. This will power air
curtain fans and Mitsubishi Electric interface
pcb. NB. Electric heaters must be disabled !!

entry points
3) Connection from Manual Room Control (required only for manual control)
To comply with IEE regulations two separate 2-core, 230v mains rated double
insulated cables of different colours should be used to wire from the manual room
control. One 2-core cable is wired to terminals 1 & 2 (Heat Setting - signal voltage).
The other 2-core cable is wired to terminals 3 & 4 (On/Off switch - 230v).
9901030-2
Page 10 of 23
If a BMS or Centralised Controller is to be used instead of Manual Control it is not
necessary to wire to terminals 1-4. NB. Do not install Manual Room Control and
BMS/Centralised Control together as they can interfere with each other.
Recommended wire size for electrical connections are as follows:
1
1.0mm2
2
2.5mm2 max for access
3
0.75mm2
Do not use cable size of more than 2.5mm2 or connecting the cable is difficult.

Connect a computer running the appropriate software to the Mitsubishi Electric
outdoor unit. Switch on electrical power to both the Mitsubishi Electric outdoor unit
and the Air Curtain. WARNING! Interface PCB will have 230 volts on it.
Communication between the Mitsubishi Electric Outdoor Unit and the Air Curtain
commences approximately 30 seconds after power-up. After this time switch on the
air curtain using the 'On Off Write' parameter of the BMS software.
Once the air curtain fans are operating check that they run at Low (I), Medium (II) and
High (III) speeds using the manual 3 speed fan switch inside the left hand end of the
air curtain. Check there is no excessive mechanical noise coming from the fans and
that all fans are working. Select the fan speed appropriate to the site conditions and
leave on this setting. LEDs 1, 2, 3 and 5 on the Interface PCB should be lit.
Set the BMS 'Mode' parameter to 2. Provided the return air temperature is below
28ºC the air curtain should now be operating in heating mode. Check that the air
stream from the discharge warms up across the whole length of the air curtain after
approximately 20 minutes and that the air stream reaches right down across the
doorway with the door open or closed. Set up the BMS schedule. It is possible to:
•
•
•
•
•
switch the Air Curtain on and off
determine whether the Air Curtain is operating
monitor the Return Air Temperature
monitor any Mitsubishi Electric system errors
read/write the Mitsubishi Electric Outdoor Unit Mode (heating or ambient)
Note 1: The 'Mode' parameter should only be set to '2' (heating) or '6' (FanAmbient). The system is designed for heating or Fan-Ambient only, using other
'Mode' settings will result in incorrect operation or malfunction. Never set the 'Mode'
parameter to '1' (cooling) as the air curtain is not designed to cope with
condensate.
Note 2: The set point and fan speed of the air curtain cannot be altered through
the BMS or Centralised Controller. The set point is hard coded to 28ºC * via dip
switch SW2 on the Mitsubishi Interface PCB in the air curtain. The fan speed is set
manually at commissioning using the 3 speed fan switch inside the air curtain (see
above).
* for Set Point 26°C use dip switch settings SW2-3 ON, SW2-4 OFF, SW2-5 ON
* for Set Point 24°C use dip switch settings SW2-3 OFF, SW2-4 OFF, SW2-5 ON
Switch off the electrical power to the Mitsubishi Electric Outdoor Unit and Air Curtain.
Carefully slide the Interface PCB back into place, replacing the Filter Indication
connection if removed earlier. Ensure cables are not trapped inside and refit retaining
screw. The Filter Indicator Schedule can now be changed from its default setting if
9901030-2

Note 1:
The set point and fan speed of the air curtain cannot be altered through
the Manual Room Control. The set point is hard coded to 28ºC * via dip switch SW2 on
the Mitsubishi Interface PCB in the air curtain. The fan speed is set manually at
commissioning using the 3 speed fan switch inside the air curtain, as described above.
* for Set Point 26°C use dip switch settings SW2-3 ON, SW2-4 OFF, SW2-5 ON
* for Set Point 24°C use dip switch settings SW2-3 OFF, SW2-4 OFF, SW2-5 ON
Switch off the electrical power to the Mitsubishi Electric Outdoor Unit and Air Curtain.
Carefully slide the Interface PCB back into place, replacing the Filter Indication
connection if removed earlier. Ensure cables are not trapped inside and refit retaining
screw. The Filter Indicator Schedule can now be changed from its default setting if
required (see page 17). Refit the recessed grille core with air filter (see “To gain access
inside the Air Curtain” page 9). Power-up both the Mitsubishi Electric Outdoor Unit and
Air Curtain and re-check the operation of the unit via the Manual Room Control.
Filter Dirty Indicator
The air curtain is fitted with a Filter Dirty Indicator. It is located at
the left-hand end of the air discharge grille and signals when the
air curtain inlet grille filters should be vacuum cleaned or the air
curtain requires servicing.
The indicator states are outlined below:

Hand-over to End-User
Before leaving site it is important that there is a 'Hand-Over Meeting' to hand-over the
heat pump system and air curtain installation to the end user or their representative.
This should include a full and clear explanation of how the system operates and a
demonstration showing the air curtain running. Be sure to explain the Filter Indicator
Schedule, that the air inlet grille must be regularly vacuum cleaned and the unit serviced
at regular intervals.
If the air curtain is to be operated under manual control, it is important that the end user
understands how the Thermoscreens Manual Room Control operates (see Page 15).
That the air curtain operates in FAN (Ambient) mode or in HEAT mode with a fixed
target temperature of 28°C, or less if the hard coded set point has been changed via dip
switch SW2 on the Mitsubishi Interface PCB in the air curtain (see Page 14).
If the air curtain is to be operated under the control of a BMS System or Centralised
Controller, explain all the settings and demonstrate the operation of the system. That
the air curtain should be operated in FAN (Ambient) mode or in HEAT mode with a fixed
target temperature of 28°C, or less if the hard coded set point has been changed via dip
9901030-2

switch SW2 on the Mitsubishi Interface PCB in the air curtain (see Page 14). It is vital
they understand that the air curtain must not be run in COOL or AUTO mode.
Ensure that all instructions and manuals are handed to the end user or their
representative.

SERVICING THE HEAT PUMP AIR CURTAIN
Vacuum Clean the Air Inlet Grilles / Filters
(Weekly, or when the Filter Dirty Indicator shows PERMANENT RED)
With the air curtain switched OFF, a vacuum cleaner with
an extension tube and brush attachment at its end should
be used to clean the face of the air inlet grille and the filter
at the back of the grille. This is important to minimise the
build-up of dust and lint on the air filter which will affect the
performance of the air curtain. This is a simple service task
that can be carried out by the Cleaner or Janitor on a
weekly basis from floor level without having to access the
air curtain at high level. This should be done weekly as a
regular service task and/or when the Filter Dirty Indicator
shows permanent red.
Reset the Filter Dirty Indicator after cleaning by a quick press of
the Reset Button (even if the indicator has not gone red).
Servicing the Air Curtain
(suggest every 3 Months, or if the Filter Dirty Indicator shows FLASHING RED)
Always disconnect and isolate the mains electricity supply both at the local
electrical supply to the Air Curtain and at the Mitsubishi Electric Outdoor Unit
before servicing, maintaining or repairing the Air Curtain.
Note: All servicing, maintenance and repairs to the air curtain must be carried out by an
approved Service Agent.
Towards the rear of the recessed grille (nearest the
doorway), and at each end of the grille, there are two
conical bolts that prevent the grille being removed
without the use of tools.
Loosen these two conical bolts using an 8mm
spanner.
Then push the grille core towards the doorway against
spring loaded pins on one side and the grille core with
filter now comes clear of its frame.
Note: The grille core with filter attached will still be
tethered to the frame via safety cords and will
hang down on these cords.
9901030-2
Page 19 of 23
The grille filter can now be unclipped from the grille
and brushed and vacuum cleaned.
Looking up inside at the front edge of the unit (the
edge furthest from the doorway) there are 2 or 3
screws inset into the frame (see photo). Loosen each
of these screws by 2 turns.
Reach up and pull the metal retaining strip over to one
side and remove the retaining strip.
Pull the void filter outwards at the bottom and then
remove from the air curtain. It can then be brushed
and vacuum cleaned.
Refit the filters opposite to removal. The filters are very durable but may need to be
replaced after a number of service intervals.
Vacuum clean and remove any build-up of dust, dirt and debris within the air-curtain,
especially on the face of the coil and the electric heating elements.
Note: Fan motors are permanently lubricated and require no additional lubrication.
Once the air curtain has been cleaned, visually inspect the air curtain components.
Ensure pipe temperature sensors are located in their pockets and any foam insulation
covering these pockets is un-damaged. Check the location of the thermal overheat cutout and air sensor and that the thermal overheat cut-out switch has not tripped (see
Section – Commissioning, Page 13). Check all electrical connections and terminals
within the unit are tight and that crimp connections have not become loose.
After all the components have been re-fitted switch on the
electrical supplies and fully function test the air curtain to ensure
correct operation (see Section – Commissioning, Page 13).
Reset the Filter Dirty Indicator after the service by pressing the
Reset Button for at least 5 seconds (even if the indicator has not
gone flashing red).and hand back the unit to the end user.
