Basic information
Welcome in the world of air-source water heat pump. Your decision to purchase heat pump will reward you
for many years. This is your assurance that you have purchased quality heat pump system, which is
manufactured based on the latest level of knowledge and innovation.
We are pleased to introduce new powerful high temperature heat pump S-THERM+ series, which has been
tested based on EHPA and EN 14511 standards and reached excellent results in energy-efficiency; these
results are indicated in submitted protocols.
Control units of existing air-water heat pumps adjust refrigerant quantity through thermostatic or electric
expansion valve to set temperature based on temperature and pressure of refrigerant without taking into
consideration status of additional nodes of heat pump system.
Control unit of SINCLAIR S-THERM+ heat pump optimizes the control process of heat pump
comprehensively, which means that control unit uses several additional data sources, gathered in important
nodes of the whole system. Control process is thus expanded with the data of outdoor temperature,
compressor temperature, refrigerant temperature and pressure, position of control valves, heating water
temperature and flow, air flow through evaporator etc.
This comprehensive way of heat pump controlling can react more quickly and precisely to the changes of
physical quantities, which have influence on the efficiency of the whole system. Next advantage brings the
fact, that monitoring these important physical quantities gives the control unit the possibility to foresee
expected changes and react in advance. As a result of this, control process becomes smoother without
fluctuations and overshooting, which is typical for existing less sophisticated or versatile control units.
Operation of SINCLAIR S-THERM+ heat pump system is thus much more stable.
High temperature heat pump SINCLAIR S-THERM+ and its control unit was designed as a complex system
providing efficient management of thermal energy to guarantee balanced and efficient operation of a house,
inclusive integration of solar cells as a additional source of thermal energy and a possibility for swimming
pool heating. But the system is of course for its operation dependent on continuous supply of necessary
amount of electric energy from distribution network. For the case of power supply failure, there is the
possibility to add a special optional battery operated GSM module, which can in the case of power failure
send SMS message to given telephone numbers informing about this event; in case of fatal failure of the
system, message defining current status can be sent to the user, giving him a chance to take necessary
steps for system operation recovery or to take necessary measures.
Standard equipment includes also LAN module, which gives the possibility of remote control and monitoring
via internet network.

Safety precautions
1) Prevention of explosion and fire
Some parts of heat pump (indoor unit) can become very hot.
Do not touch any pipes of heating system which have no thermal insulation.
Do not remove any parts of casing.
2) Prevention of frostbites
Supplied heat pump (indoor unit) is charged with refrigerant R407c. This refrigerant contains no chlorine and
thus represents no damage for ozone layer of the Earth. Refrigerant R407c is not inflammable and forms no
risk of explosion. But leaking refrigerant can cause frostbites on affected areas.
In case of refrigerant leak do not touch any part of heat pump.
Do not inhale fumes or gases, which come out from leaks.
Prevent contact refrigerant with skin or intrusion into your eyes.
When there is a refrigerant contact with a skin or intrusion into eyes, search for medical assistance.
3) Prevention of injuries
The air coming out from the outdoor unit is colder than outdoor temperature. By temperatures below 5 °C
can come to ice forming in this area. This ice represents a certain danger of slipping.
Do not forget possible ice forming under the outdoor unit. Take necessary measures to prevent possible
danger to persons near the outdoor unit.
4) Prevention of injuries due to unqualified modifications
Do not damage or remove seals and safety locks on individual parts of the unit. Modifications of sealed and
locked parts can be done only by authorized service engineers and customer service.
Prohibition to make any changes is valid for:
– heat pump system,
– surroundings of heat pump system,
– water and electricity supply.
Please make under no circumstances any modifications or changes in the heat pump system or in other
parts of heating system and hot water preparation.
Please do not make any additional site structural changes, which could restrict available space for the unit or
other steps, which could lead to a temperature changes on indoor unit installation place.
5) Prevent possible damages to the house caused by condensate water
Piping system between indoor and outdoor is cold which means the condensate can form on piping inside
the house. This could lead to a material damage, e.g. as a result of corrosion.
Please make sure the piping insulation is not damaged.
When there is a insulation damage, please call service engineer immediately.
6) Prevent environment damage
Heat pump (indoor unit) contains refrigerant R407c. This refrigerant must never escape into the atmosphere.
Refrigerant R407C is a fluorinated greenhouse gas with GWP 1653 (GWP = Global Warming Potential)
covered by the Kyoto Protocol. If this refrigerant escapes into the atmosphere, its effect is 1653 times
stronger than the natural greenhouse gas CO2.
Before disposal of the heat pump, refrigerant in the system must be completely sucked up into a suitable
container in order to have later the possibility to recycle or to dispose the refrigerant according to the valid
rules and regulations.
Please ensure all maintenance work connected with access to the refrigerant circuit is made only by officially
certified qualified persons and using corresponding protection tools and equipment.
Please let the refrigerant in the heat pump system to be recycled or disposed by a qualified person in
accordance with valid rules and regulations.

Product description
The air-source heat pump extracts heat from outdoor air and transfers it into water. Heat pump systems
consist of separated circuits, where heat is transferred from its source to the heating system using liquids or
gases. As these circuits use different media (air, refrigerant and heating water), circuits are connected
through heat exchangers. These heat exchangers provide transfer of thermal energy.
Heat pump is used to heat buildings using accumulating hot water into heat water tank (using the tank is not
a condition for heat pump operation), where water tank must have a volume appropriate to the building size.
Size of accumulated water tank must be determined by a designer, based on the thermal loss of the building.
Effective heating of the building is reached by circulation of this heated water. When using under floor
heating, the heat pump can reach COP value up to 4,5. Normal water temperature for under floor heating is
35 °C, temperature 40 °C to 50 °C is used for heating with fan coils (heat exchangers with fan), temperature
35 °C to 65 °C is used for radiators, or other temperature can be used based on the request of the user.
If necessary, the unit can also work in reverse mode and heat pump can be used for cooling. When used for
cooling, water is cooled down to the temperature of 12 °C.
Compared with oil boiler, gas boiler and electric heater represents the heat pump the best solution thanks to
its efficiency, safety and environment protection.
This high temperature air-water heat pump uses advanced technologies for heating and intelligent control
system to produce water warmer than 65 °C. Heat pump can therefore supply hot water for under floor
heating, heat exchanger (fan coil) or radiator and thus replace water boiler directly.
Heat pump can be furthermore used for production of high temperature water for sanitary purposes, as for
example for use in kitchen, for showers and so on.
Any other purpose of using can be considered as utilization, which is not in compliance with its
determination. Manufacturer/supplier takes therefore no responsibility for any damage thus incurred. The risk
is on the side of user.
System consists of two units (indoor and outdoor), which are connected with a copper refrigerant piping.
Other components and parts of the heating system are delivered and installed by installation company or
other subcontractor and it is necessary to use components, according to the purpose and utilization of the
system.
Connection between heat pump and accumulation tank should be as short as possible, as simple as
possible any with minimal bends. In case it is necessary to make a bend, it is recommended to make an
elbow rather than a bend. Size of the connection between heat pump and accumulation tank should be at
least DN25, so that sufficient flow of 2,0-2,8 m3/h can be guaranteed.
Heat pump is equipped with one auxiliary electric heater, which can be used:
To support heating and hot water supply when there is an insufficient heat supply from heat source.
For an emergency mode, when there are faults with permanent heat pump switch off.
To keep emergency protection against frost during these faults.
Auxiliary electric heater can be used for heating and/or hot water supply.

Heat pump is equipped with an intelligent control system with the possibility of controlling up to 18 switch
relays with the capacity of 230V/2A max. Besides this, the system can control two step motors of expansion
valves and the control board has two outputs with voltage 0 to 10V for exchanger fan speed control or heat
pump compressor control. Heat pump can be controlled from supervising system via communication cable or
can be controlled remotely via Internet or mobile phone; for more details and possibilities please
see Operation manual.
IMPORTANT REMARKS:
Illustration above shows only the main parts and the main purpose of utilization; several additional
components must be installed by qualified person in order to guarantee safety and maintenance possibilities,
as for example water connections, venting valves, flexible piping, control valves, pressure gauges, water
filters, water temperature gauges, drainages and similar.
House heating and hot water supply
As the heat pump can supply hot water with the
temperature even over 65 °C, it can provide also
water for sanitary purposes when second tank for
hot water is provided.
REMARKS: To accomplish the whole system, it is
necessary to use additional components and
control.

Water connections
When making water connections, take into consideration remarks below:
Heat pump is determined to be connected to a closed system of central heating. In order to
guarantee fault-free operation, central heating installation must be made by authorized specialized
persons and in accordance with corresponding standards and rules.
Try to reduce water resistance in the piping.
Piping must be clean and without any dirt and obstructions. It is necessary to make a leak test and
check that there is no water leaking.
Piping pressure test must be done separately. DO NOT MAKE the test, when the heat pump is
connected.
There is a flow switch mounted inside the heat pump. Ensure correct connection of this switch and
its function and its control by control unit.
It is better to make the connection between the heat pump and the building as a flexible connection,
so that transfer of vibrations is eliminated. Water piping holders must be made independently and
must not use the unit of heat pump.
Try to prevent air presence in a water piping and mount venting valve to the upper part of water
distribution system.
For easy inspection during the operation, it is necessary to install temperature and pressure gauge
to the water input and output.
Lower parts of water distribution system must be equipped with a drain outlet and a drain outlet is
already mounted on the heat pump frame. If heat pump is not running, then it is necessary to drain
the water from the system in winter time. For water distribution system venting, a venting valve must
be mounted on the upper side of the system. For easy maintenance, it is not necessary to make an
insulation on the drain part and venting valve. Drain parts and venting valve are not parts delivered
with the heat pump; these parts must be supplied by an installation company.
Danger of equipment and system damage due to the use of water with high
content of calcium and magnesium!
Caution!

SECTION 8: Exposure controls/personal protection
Products components, which are necessary to monitor - limits of exposure:
none
Engineering measures:
Ensure adequate ventilation and local exhaust on the workplace,
and also in floor area (refrigerant R 407C is heavier than air).
Personal protective equipment:
a) Respiratory protection:
Self-contained breathing apparatus in case of high concentration.
For the case of emergency use, have mask of self-contained
breathing apparatus always in ready position.
In case of rescue action or during maintenance work in a
warehouse, always use self-contained breathing apparatus, as
there is a hazard of suffocation, because oxygen can be squeezed
out from air by refrigerant.
b) Eyes protection:
Additionally wear a face shield where the possibility of increased
hazard exists.
c) Hands protection:
Wear chemically resistant protective gloves, leather gloves, possibly
also gloves of PVA type.
d) Skin protection:
Protective clothing, safe work shoes.
