SAFETY PRECAUTION
2-1. ALWAYS OBSERVE FOR SAFETY
Before obtaining access to terminal, all supply
circuits must be disconnected.
2-2. CAUTIONS RELATED TO NEW REFRIGERANT
Cautions for units utilising refrigerant R410A
Use new refrigerant pipes.
Do not use refrigerant other than R410A.
In case of using the existing pipes for R22, be careful with
the followings.
· For RP100, 125 and 140, be sure to perform replacement operation before test run.
· Change flare nut to the one provided with this product.
Use a newly flared pipe.
· Avoid using thin pipes.
If other refrigerant (R22 etc.) is used, chlorine in refrigerant can cause deterioration of refrigerant oil etc.
Use a vacuum pump with a reverse flow check
valve.
Vacuum pump oil may flow back into refrigerant cycle and
that can cause deterioration of refrigerant oil etc.
Make sure that the inside and outside of refrigerant piping is clean and it has no contamination
such as sulfur hazardous for use, oxides, dirt,
shaving particles, etc.
In addition, use pipes with specified thickness.
Use the following tools specifically designed for
use with R410A refrigerant.
The following tools are necessary to use R410A refrigerant.
Contamination inside refrigerant piping can cause deterioration of refrigerant oil etc.
Gauge manifold
Charge hose
Gas leak detector
Torque wrench
Tools for R410A
Flare tool
Size adjustment gauge
Vacuum pump adaptor
Electronic refrigerant
charging scale
Store the piping to be used indoors during
installation, and keep both ends of the piping
sealed until just before brazing. (Leave elbow
joints, etc. in their packaging.)
Handle tools with care.
If dirt, dust or moisture enters into refrigerant cycle, that can
cause deterioration of refrigerant oil or malfunction of compressor.
If dirt, dust or moisture enters into refrigerant cycle, that can
cause deterioration of refrigerant oil or malfunction of compressor.
Use ester oil, ether oil or alkylbenzene oil (small
amount) as the refrigerant oil applied to flares
and flange connections.
Do not use a charging cylinder.
If large amount of mineral oil enters, that can cause deterioration of refrigerant oil etc.
If a charging cylinder is used, the composition of refrigerant will change and the efficiency will be lowered.
Charge refrigerant from liquid phase of gas
cylinder.
Ventilate the room if refrigerant leaks during
operation. If refrigerant comes into contact with
a flame, poisonous gases will be released.
If the refrigerant is charged from gas phase, composition
change may occur in refrigerant and the efficiency will be
lowered.
Use the specified refrigerant only.
Never use any refrigerant other than that specified.
Doing so may cause a burst, an explosion, or fire when the
unit is being used, serviced, or disposed of.
Correct refrigerant is specified in the manuals and on the
spec labels provided with our products.
We will not be held responsible for mechanical failure,
system malfunction, unit breakdown or accidents caused
by failure to follow the instructions.
3
[1] Cautions for service
(1) Perform service after recovering the refrigerant left in unit completely.
(2) Do not release refrigerant in the air.
(3) After completing service, charge the cycle with specified amount of refrigerant.
(4) When performing service, install a filter drier simultaneously.
Be sure to use a filter drier for new refrigerant.
[2] Additional refrigerant charge
When charging directly from cylinder
· Check that cylinder for R410A on the market is syphon type.
· Charging should be performed with the cylinder of syphon stood vertically. (Refrigerant is charged from liquid phase.)

Actions to be taken for service (summary)
Displayed
Judge what is wrong and take a corrective action according
to “9-3. Self-diagnosis action table”.
The trouble is reoccurring.
Not displayed
Conduct troubleshooting and ascertain the cause of the
trouble according to “9-4. Troubleshooting by inferior
phenomena”.
Consider the temporary defects such as the work of
protection devices in the refrigerant circuit including
compressor, poor connection of wiring, noise and etc.
Re-check the symptom, and check the installation
environment, refrigerant amount, weather when the
trouble occurred, matters related to wiring and etc.
Reset error code logs and restart the unit after finishing
service.
There is no abnormality in electrical component,
controller board, remote controller and etc.
Logged
The trouble is not reoccurring.
Re-check the abnormal symptom.
Conduct trouble shooting and ascertain the cause of the
trouble according to “9-4. Troubleshooting by inferior
phenomena”.
Continue to operate unit for the time being if the cause
is not ascertained.
There is no abnormality concerning of parts such as

When the remote control does not function, it is possible to activate.
Emergency Operation by using the indoor unit Emergency operation switch.
However, if the indoor unit microcomputer has failed, it is nesessary to proceed with points 2 and 3 below as in the
case of the wired remote control.
2. When you activate Emergency operation of the cooling or heating, you have to set the switch(SWE) on the indoor
controller board and activate Emergency operation of the outdoor unit.
For details on how to activate Emergency operation of the outdoor unit, refer to the outdoor unit wiring diagram.
3. Before you activate Emergency operation, check the following points:
(1) Emergency operation cannot be activated when:
• the outdoor unit malfunctions. • the indoor fan malfunctions.
• when it has detected the malfunction of drain pump during self-diagnosing.
(2) Emergency operation becomes continuous only by switching the power source on/off.
ON/OFF on the remote control or temperature control etc. does not function.
(3) Avoid operating for a long time when the outdoor unit begins defrosting while Emergency operation of the heating
is activated, because it will start to blow cold air.
(4) Emergency cooling should be limited to 10 hours maximum (The indoor unit heat exchanger may freeze).
(5) After Emergency operation has been deactivated, set the switches etc. to their original positions.
(6) Movement of the vanes does not work in Emergency operation, therefore you have to slowly set them manually
to the appropriate position.

SPECIAL FUNCTION
10-1. ROTATION FUNCTION (AND BACK-UP FUNCTION, 2ND STAGE CUT-IN FUNCTION)
Optional wired remote controller with terminal bed (PAR-21MAAT-E) are necessary for PKA type.
10-1-1. Operation
(1) Rotation function (and Back-up function)
• Outline of functions
· Main and sub unit operate alternately according to the interval of rotation setting.
w Main and sub unit should be set by refrigerant address. (Outdoor Dip switch setting)
Refrigerant address "00"
Main unit
Refrigerant address "01"
Sub unit
· When error occurs to one unit, another unit will start operation. (Back-up function)
• System constraint
· This function is available only by the grouping control system (INDOOR UNIT : OUTDOOR UNIT=1:1) of 2 refrigerant
groups. (Refer to Fig. 1)
· Main indoor unit should be connected for wired remote controller and the transmission line (TB5) for main and sub unit
should also be connected. (Refer to Fig. 1)
(This function cannot be set by wireless remote controller.)
· Set refrigerant address of each unit. (Dip switch on the outdoor unit ··· Refrigerant address 00/01)

(Ex:When the request code number is "313", each unit operates alternately in daily cycle.)
Note:
· When the unit is restarted to operate after turning off the power or OFF operation, the unit which was operating will start
operation.
· To operate the main unit, refer to the 10-1-2. and set the request code No. which is not the same as the current one, and set
again the former request code No.
(2) 2nd stage cut-in function
Outline of functions
· When the 1st unit can NOT supply with sufficient capacity for exceptionally high-demand conditions and the actual room
temperature reaches set point *, the 2nd unit starts operation in conjunction with the 1st unit.
· Once the actual room temperature goes down to 4 degrees C below set point *, the 2nd unit stops operation automatically.
(* set point = set temperature by R/C (remote controller) + 4, 6, 8: (selectable) )
· Number of operating units is determined according to the room temperature and set point.
· When room temperature becomes higher than set point, standby unit starts.(2 units operation)
· When room temperature falls below set point -4:, standby unit stops. (1 unit operation)
26
• System constraint
· This function is available only in cooling mode.
Ex.) Set temp. by R/C = 20:
Set point = 26:
When request code number is “323”.
