IMPORTANT!
Please Read Before Starting
When Installing…
This air conditioning system meets strict safety and operating
standards. As the installer or service person, it is an important part of your job to install or service the system so it operates safely and efficiently.
…In a Room
Properly insulate any tubing run inside a room to prevent
“sweating” that can cause dripping and water damage to
walls and floors.
For safe installation and trouble-free operation, you must:
Carefully read this instruction booklet before beginning.
Follow each installation or repair step exactly as shown.
Observe all local, state, and national electrical codes.
This product is intended for professional use.
Permission from the power supplier is required when
installing an outdoor unit that is connected to a 16 A distribution network.
Pay close attention to all warning and caution notices
given in this manual.
This symbol refers to a hazard or
unsafe practice which can result
WARNING
in severe personal injury or death.
…In Moist or Uneven Locations
Use a raised concrete pad or concrete blocks to provide a
solid, level foundation for the outdoor unit. This prevents
water damage and abnormal vibration.
CAUTION
…In an Area with High Winds
Securely anchor the outdoor unit down with bolts and a
metal frame. Provide a suitable air baffle.
…In a Snowy Area (for Heat Pump-type Systems)
Install the outdoor unit on a raised platform that is higher
than drifting snow. Provide snow vents.
When Connecting Refrigerant Tubing
• Ventilate the room well, in the event that is refrigerant
gas leaks during the installation. Be careful not to allow
contact of the refrigerant gas with a flame as this will
cause the generation of poisonous gas.
This symbol refers to a hazard or
unsafe practice which can result
in personal injury or product or
property damage.
• Keep all tubing runs as short as possible.
If Necessary, Get Help
• Use the flare method for connecting tubing.
These instructions are all you need for most installation
sites and maintenance conditions. If you require help for a
special problem, contact our sales/service outlet or your
certified dealer for additional instructions.
• Apply refrigerant lubricant to the matching surfaces of
the flare and union tubes before connecting them, then
tighten the nut with a torque wrench for a leak-free connection.
In Case of Improper Installation
• Check carefully for leaks before starting the test run.
The manufacturer shall in no way be responsible for
improper installation or maintenance service, including failure to follow the instructions in this document.
When Servicing
• Turn the power OFF at the main power box (mains)
before opening the unit to check or repair electrical parts
and wiring.
SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
WARNING
• Keep your fingers and clothing away from any moving
parts.
When Wiring
• Clean up the site after you finish, remembering to check
that no metal scraps or bits of wiring have been left
inside the unit being serviced.
ELECTRICAL SHOCK CAN CAUSE
SEVERE PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.
ONLY A QUALIFIED, EXPERIENCED
ELECTRICIAN SHOULD ATTEMPT TO
WIRE THIS SYSTEM.
CAUTION
• Do not supply power to the unit until all wiring and tubing
are completed or reconnected and checked.
• Ventilate any enclosed areas when installing or testing
the refrigeration system. Escaped refrigerant gas, on
contact with fire or heat, can produce dangerously toxic
gas.
• Highly dangerous electrical voltages are used in this system. Carefully refer to the wiring diagram and these
instructions when wiring. Improper connections and inadequate grounding can cause accidental injury or death.
• Confirm after installation that no refrigerant gas is leaking. If the gas comes in contact with a burning stove, gas
water heater, electric room heater or other heat source,
it can cause the generation of poisonous gas.
• Ground the unit following local electrical codes.
• Connect all wiring tightly. Loose wiring may cause overheating at connection points and a possible fire hazard.
When Transporting
Be careful when picking up and moving the indoor and outdoor
units. Get a partner to help, and bend your knees when lifting to
reduce strain on your back. Sharp edges or thin aluminum fins
on the air conditioner can cut your fingers.

Check of Density Limit
2. The standards for minimum room volume are as
follows.
The room in which the air conditioner is to be
installed requires a design that in the event of
refrigerant gas leaking out, its density will not
exceed a set limit.
The refrigerant (R410A), which is used in the air conditioner, is safe, without the toxicity or combustibility of
ammonia, and is not restricted by laws imposed to protect the ozone layer. However, since it contains more
than air, it poses the risk of suffocation if its density
should rise excessively. Suffocation from leakage of
refrigerant is almost non-existent. With the recent
increase in the number of high density buildings, however, the installation of multi air conditioner systems is
on the increase because of the need for effective use
of floor space, individual control, energy conservation
by curtailing heat and carrying power, etc.
Most importantly, the multi air conditioner system is
able to replenish a large amount of refrigerant compared to conventional individual air conditioners. If a
single unit of the multi air conditioner system is to be
installed in a small room, select a suitable model and
installation procedure so that if the refrigerant accidentally leaks out, its density does not reach the limit
(and in the event of an emergency, measures can be
made before injury can occur).
In a room where the density may exceed the limit,
create an opening with adjacent rooms, or install
mechanical ventilation combined with a gas leak
detection device. The density is as given below.
(1) No partition (shaded portion)
(2) When there is an effective opening with the adjacent room for ventilation of leaking refrigerant gas
(opening without a door, or an opening 0.15% or
larger than the respective floor spaces at the top
or bottom of the door).
Outdoor unit
Refrigerant tubing
Indoor unit
(3) If an indoor unit is installed in each partitioned
room and the refrigerant tubing is interconnected,
the smallest room of course becomes the object.
But when mechanical ventilation is installed interlocked with a gas leakage detector in the smallest
room where the density limit is exceeded, the volume of the next smallest room becomes the object.

Precautions for Installation Using New Refrigerant
1. Care regarding tubing
1-1. Process tubing
Material: Use C1220 phosphorous deoxidized copper specified in JIS H3300 “Copper and Copper Alloy Seamless Pipes and Tubes.”
Tubing size: Be sure to use the sizes indicated in the table below.
Use a tube cutter when cutting the tubing, and be sure to remove any flash. This also applies to distribution
joints (optional).
When bending tubing, use a bending radius that is 4 times the outer diameter of the tubing or larger.
Use sufficient care in handling the tubing. Seal the tubing ends with
caps or tape to prevent dirt, moisture, or other foreign substances
from entering. These substances can result in system malfunction.

1-2. Prevent impurities including water, dust and oxide from entering the tubing. Impurities can cause R410A
refrigerant deterioration and compressor defects. Due to the features of the refrigerant and refrigerating
machine oil, the prevention of water and other impurities becomes more important than ever.
2. Be sure to recharge the refrigerant only in liquid form.
2-1. Since R410A is a non-azeotrope, recharging the refrigerant in gas form can lower performance and cause
defects of the unit.
2-2. Since refrigerant composition changes and performance decreases when gas leaks, collect the remaining
refrigerant and recharge the required total amount of new refrigerant after fixing the leak.
3. Different tools required
3-1. Tool specifications have been changed due to the characteristics of R410A.
Some tools for R22- and R407C-type refrigerant systems cannot be used.

Yes
Use a conventional vacuum pump if it is equipped
with a check valve. If it has no check valve,
purchase and attach a vacuum pump adapter.
Leak detector
Yes
No
Leak detectors for CFC and HCFC that
react to chlorine do not function because
R410A contains no chlorine. Leak detector
for HFC134a can be used for R410A.
Flaring oil
Yes
No
Types of refrigerant, refrigerating machine oil, and
pressure gauge are different.
For systems that use R22, apply mineral oil (Suniso oil)
to the flare nuts on the tubing to prevent refrigerant
leakage. For machines that use R407C or R410A, apply
synthetic oil (ether oil) to the flare nuts.
* Using tools for R22 and R407C and new tools for R410A together can cause defects.

Always check the gas density
limit for the room in which
the unit is installed.
Minimum indoor volume & floor area as against the
amount of refrigerant is roughly as given in the following table.
1-10. Check of Limit Density
When installing an air conditioner in a room, it is necessary to ensure that even if the refrigerant gas accidentally leaks out, its density does not exceed the limit
level for that room.
Min. indoor floor area
(when the ceiling is 2.7 m high)
If the density could exceed the limit level, it is necessary to provide an opening between the unit and the
adjacent room, or to install mechanical ventilation
which is interlocked with the leak detector.
The shipped outdoor unit comes charged with the
amount of refrigerant fixed for each type, so add it to
the amount that is charged in the field.
(For the refrigerant charge amount at shipment, refer to
the unit’s nameplate.)
CAUTION
Pay special attention to any location, such as a basement, etc.,
where leaking refrigerant can
accumulate, since refrigerant gas
is heavier than air.

valve, locate it within 40 cm of the distribution joint.)
(Consult with Technibel separately concerning the
ball valve.)
If a trap or ball valve is not added, do not operate
the system before repairs to a malfunctioning

NOTE
1. Because the diameter of this ball valve is approximately the same as the inner diameter of the connecting copper tube, correction for pressure loss is not necessary.
2. Airtightness must be 3.6 MPa or more.
It is recommended that the ball valve is installed at each outdoor unit (gas tube and liquid tube), in order to
prevent refrigerant from being released into the atmosphere if the outdoor unit is eventually replaced.

CAUTION
This ball valve is for use
only in systems that utilize
refrigerant R410A. The service port connection size is
ø7.94. The face-to-face distance between the ø12.7 or
ø15.88 flare nuts is 26 mm
or 29 mm, respectively.
Be sure to use only the
supplied flare nuts. Be

4. Installing thermal insulation
The thermal insulation used for a flare-nut type
valve is in the form of a bag. When the valve is
used for extension, it can be used as-is. If the
valve is used for any other purpose, use a box cutter or similar tool to cut away the part shown in the
figure at right.
The insulation is divided into 2 parts. After performing the leak test, use vinyl tape or other
means to temporarily fasten the 2 parts together.
Then carry out final finishing.

2. Installation requirements
• Be sure to install the ball valve up-grade to prevent the inadvertent flow of oil.
• Install the ball valve at the shortest distance (within 40 cm) from the main tube. If the diameter of the ball
valve is smaller than that of the main tube, use a reducer or the like to reduce the size of the tubing at that
location.
• Select a place where it is easy to operate, using careful consideration of the location in advance.

1-15. Example of Tubing Size Selection and Refrigerant Charge Amount
Additional refrigerant charging
Based on the values in Tables 1-11, 1-12, 1-13 and 1-16, use the liquid tubing size and length, and calculate the
amount of additional refrigerant charge using the formula below.
Required additional
–3
refrigerant charge (kg) = [56 × (a) + 26 × (b)] × 10
(a): Liquid tubing
Total length of ø9.52 (m)
(b): Liquid tubing
Total length of ø6.35 (m)
Charging procedure
Be sure to charge with R410A refrigerant in liquid form.
1. After performing a vacuum, charge with refrigerant from the liquid tubing side. At this time, all valves must be
in the “fully closed” position.
2. If it was not possible to charge the designated amount, operate the system in Cooling mode while charging
with refrigerant from the gas tubing side. (This is performed at the time of the test run. For this, all valves
must be in the “fully open” position.)
Charge with R410A refrigerant in liquid form.
With R410A refrigerant, charge while adjusting the amount being fed a little at a time in order to prevent
liquid refrigerant from backing up.
After charging is completed, turn all valves to the “fully open” position.
Replace the tubing covers as they were before.
1 Tightening torque: 68~82 N·m
Tightening torque for valve stem cap: 19~21 N·m 4
Tightening torque: 34~42 N·m 3
2 Tightening torque for valve stem cap: 28~32 N·m
1. R410A additional charging absolutely must be done through liquid charging.
CAUTION
2. The R410A refrigerant cylinder has a gray base color, and the top part is pink.
3. The R410A refrigerant cylinder includes a siphon tube. Check that the siphon
tube is present. (This is indicated on the label at the top of the cylinder.)
4. Due to differences in the refrigerant, pressure, and refrigerant oil involved in
installation, it is not possible in some cases to use the same tools for R22 and
for R410A.

Concerning inlet-side distance “C” (Fig. 2-7)
The minimum for distance “C” is 15 cm if there are no obstructions on the outlet side
(wall *1 side) and *2 or *4 is not present. In all other cases, the minimum for distance
“C” is 20 cm.
If the unit is installed with the outlet side facing wall *1, then there must be no obstructions on 2 of the remaining 3 sides: *2, *3, *4.
If wall *1 is on the outlet side (Fig. 2-7), or if obstructions are present on all 3 sides *2,
*3, and *4 (Fig. 2-7), then the minimum distance for “A” and “B” is 2 m (Fig. 2-9). Even
if there is no wall on the outlet side, a minimum of 100 cm is required.
In case of multiple installations
provide a solid base (concrete block, 10 × 40 cm

2-4. Installing the Unit in Heavy Snow Areas
In locations with strong wind, snow-proof ducting
should be fitted and direct exposure to the wind
should be avoided as much as possible.
Fig. 2-10
Countermeasures against snow and wind
In regions with snow and strong wind, the following
problems may occur when the outdoor unit is not provided with a platform and snow-proof ducting:
a) The outdoor fan may not run and damage to the
unit may occur.
b) There may be no air flow.
c) The tubing may freeze and burst.
d) The condenser pressure may drop because of
strong wind, and the indoor unit may freeze.
In regions with significant snowfall, the outdoor unit should
be provided with a platform and snow-proof duct.
2-5. Precautions for Installation in Heavy Snow
Areas
(1) The platform should be higher than the max. snow
depth. (Fig. 2-11)
(2) The 2 anchoring feet of the outdoor unit should be
used for the platform, and the platform should be
installed beneath the air intake side of outdoor
unit.
Without snowproof ducting
(Low platform)
(3) The platform foundation must be firm and the unit
must be secured with anchor bolts.

3-3. Installing the Drain Piping
(1) Prepare standard hard PVC pipe (O.D. 32 mm) for
the drain and use the supplied drain hose and
hose band to prevent water leaks.
The PVC pipe must be purchased separately. The
unit’s transparent drain port allows you to check
drainage. (Fig. 3-10)
Align the hose band with end of the
hose, and tighten so that it does not
contact the bead.

(transparent)
CAUTION
Do not use adhesive at the drain connection
port on the indoor unit.
Insert the drain pipe until it contacts the socket,
as shown in the figure at right, then secure it
tightly with the hose band.
Tighten the hose clamps so their locking nuts
face upward. (Fig. 3-10)
Do not use the supplied drain hose bent at a 90°
angle. (The maximum permissible bend is 45°.)

CAUTION
Air bleeder
CAFM1V
Do not install an air bleeder as this may cause
water to spray from the drain pipe outlet.
(Fig. 3-12)
If it is necessary to increase the height of the
drain pipe, the section directly after the connection port can be raised a maximum of 50
cm. Do not raise it any higher than 50 cm, as
this could result in water leaks. (Fig. 3-13)
Do not install the pipe with an upward gradient
from the connection port. This will cause the
drain water to flow backward and leak when the
unit is not operating. (Fig. 3-14)
Do not apply force to the piping on the unit side
when connecting the drain pipe. The pipe
should not be allowed to hang unsupported
from its connection to the unit. Fasten the pipe
to a wall, frame, or other support as close to
the unit as possible. (Fig. 3-15)

3-4. Checking the Drainage
After wiring and drain piping are completed, use the
following procedure to check that the water will drain
smoothly. For this, prepare a bucket and wiping cloth
to catch and wipe up spilled water.
(1) Connect power to the power terminal board (R, S
terminals) inside the electrical component box.
Drain pan
(2) Pour water into the drain pan about 500 cc using a
siphon pump through the air outlet grille.
(Fig. 3-16)
Fig. 3-16
(3) Short the check pin (CHK) on the indoor control
board and operate the drain pump. Check the
water flow through the transparent drain pipe and
see if there is any leakage.
CAUTION
Be careful since the fan will
start when you short the
pin on the indoor control
board.
(4) When the drainage check is complete, open the
check pin (CHK) and remount the insulator.

based on the “H” air flow. For the 25 type, the air flow is 18 m3/minute, while the external static pressure is 49 Pa at
“H” position. If external static pressure is too great (due to long extension of ducts, for example), the air flow volume
may drop too low at each air outlet. This problem may be solved by increasing the fan speed as explained above.

3-38. Caution for Ducting Work
This unit has high static pressure (applicable external
static pressure Max. 167 to 216 pa (17–22 mm Aq).
In the case of small pressure resistance (for
instance, a short duct), install a damper for adjusting air flow volume as air flow volume / air flow
noise increases.
If the air conditioner is to be installed in a room
such as an office or meeting room which needs a
low sound level, provide a supply and return noise
absorption chamber with an acoustic liner.
Include an air filter (field supply) at the return duct.
Indoor Fan Performance
How to Read the Diagram
The vertical axis is the External Static Pressure (mmAq) while the horizontal axis represents the Air Flow
(m3/minute). The characteristic curve for the “H,” “Med,” and “Lo” fan speed control.
The nameplate values are shown based on the “H” air flow. Therefore in the case of 25 Type, the flow is
23 m3/minute, while the External Static Pressure is 19 mmAq at “H” position. If the external static pressure is too
great (due to long extension of duct, for example), the air flow volume may drop too low at each air outlet.

5. ELECTRICAL WIRING
5-1. General Precautions on Wiring
(1) Before wiring, confirm the rated voltage of the unit
as shown on its nameplate, then carry out the
wiring closely following the wiring diagram.
(7) Regulations on wire diameters differ from locality
to locality. For field wiring rules, please refer to
your LOCAL ELECTRICAL CODES before beginning.
(2) Provide a power outlet to be used exclusively for
each unit, and a power supply disconnect and circuit breaker for overcurrent protection should be
provided in the exclusive line.
You must ensure that installation complies with all
relevant rules and regulations.
(8) To prevent malfunction of the air conditioner
caused by electrical noise, care must be taken
when wiring as follows:
(3) To prevent possible hazards from insulation failure,
the unit must be grounded.
(4) Each wiring connection must be done in accordance with the wiring system diagram. Wrong
wiring may cause the unit to misoperate or
become damaged.
(5) Do not allow wiring to touch the refrigerant tubing,
compressor, or any moving parts of the fan.
The remote control wiring and the inter-unit control
wiring should be wired apart from the inter-unit
power wiring.
Use shielded wires for inter-unit control wiring
between units and ground the shield on both sides.
(9) If the power supply cord of this appliance is damaged, it must be replaced by a repair shop
appointed by the manufacturer, because special
purpose tools are required.
(6) Unauthorized changes in the internal wiring can be
very dangerous. The manufacturer will accept no
responsibility for any damage or misoperation that
occurs as a result of such unauthorized changes.

Deburring
After
Before
7-1. Connecting the Refrigerant Tubing
Use of the Flaring Method
Many of conventional split system air conditioners
employ the flaring method to connect refrigerant tubes
which run between indoor and outdoor units. In this
method, the copper tubes are flared at each end and
connected with flare nuts.
Flaring Procedure with a Flare Tool
(1) Cut the copper tube to the required length with a
tube cutter. It is recommended to cut approx. 30 –
50 cm longer than the tubing length you estimate.
Fig. 7-1
(2) Remove burrs at the end of the copper tube with a
tube reamer or file. This process is important and
should be done carefully to make a good flare.
(Fig. 7-1)
Copper
tubing
Reamer
NOTE
When reaming, hold the tube end downward and be
sure that no copper scraps fall into the tube. (Fig. 7-2)
Fig. 7-2
(3) Remove the flare nut from the unit and be sure to
mount it on the copper tube.
(4) Make a flare at the end of copper tube with a flare
tool.* (Fig. 7-3)
(*Use “RIGID® ” or equivalent.)

NOTE
A good flare should have the following characteristics:

Caution Before Connecting Tubes Tightly
(1) Apply a sealing cap or water-proof tape to prevent
dust or water from entering the tubes before they
are used.
Apply refrigerant
lubricant here and here
(2) Be sure to apply refrigerant lubricant to the matching surfaces of the flare and union before connecting them together. This is effective for reducing
gas leaks. (Fig. 7-4)
Fig. 7-4
(3) For proper connection, align the union tube and
flare tube straight with each other, then screw in
the flare nut lightly at first to obtain a smooth
match. (Fig. 7-5)
Adjust the shape of the liquid tube using a tube
bender at the installation site and connect it to the
liquid tubing side valve using a flare.
Union
Flare nut
Fig. 7-5
Cautions During Brazing
Replace air inside the tube with nitrogen gas to
prevent copper oxide film from forming during
the brazing process. (Oxygen, carbon dioxide
and Freon are not acceptable.)
Torque wrench
Spanner
Indoor unit
Do not allow the tubing to get too hot during
brazing. The nitrogen gas inside the tubing
may overheat, causing refrigerant system
valves to become damaged. Therefore allow
the tubing to cool when brazing.
Use a reducing valve for the nitrogen cylinder.
Do not use agents intended to prevent the formation of oxide film. These agents adversely
affect the refrigerant and refrigerant oil, and
may cause damage or malfunctions.

7-2. Connecting Tubing Between Indoor and Outdoor Units
(1) Tightly connect the indoor-side refrigerant tubing
extended from the wall with the outdoor-side tubing.
(2) To fasten the flare nuts, apply specified torque as
at right:
ø15.88 (5/8")
ø19.05 (3/4")
When removing the flare nuts from the tubing connections, or when tightening them after connecting
the tubing, be sure to use 2 monkey wrenches or
spanners as shown. (Fig. 7-6)
If the flare nuts are over-tightened, the flare may be
damaged, which could result refrigerant leakage
and cause in injury or asphyxiation to room occupants.

(680 – 820 kgf · cm)
100 – 120 N · m

1.0 mm
Because the pressure is approximately 1.6 times
higher than conventional refrigerant pressure, the
use of ordinary flare nuts (type 1) or thin-walled
tubes may result in tube rupture, injury, or asphyxiation caused by refrigerant leakage.
For the flare nuts at tubing connections, be sure to
use the flare nuts that were supplied with the unit,
or else flare nuts for R410A (type 2). The refrigerant tubing that is used must be of the correct wall
thickness as shown in the table at right.
83
In order to prevent damage to the flare caused by
over-tightening of the flare nuts, use the table
above as a guide when tightening.
When tightening the flare nut on the liquid tube,
use a monkey wrench with a nominal handle length
of 200 mm.

Thermal insulation must be applied to all unit tubing, including distribution joint
(purchased separately).
* For gas tubing, the insulation material must be
heat resistant to 120°C or above. For other tubing,
it must be heat resistant to 80°C or above.
Insulation material thickness must be 10 mm or
greater.
If the conditions inside the ceiling exceed DB 30°C
and RH 70%, increase the thickness of the gas
tubing insulation material by 1 step.

7-4. Taping the Tubes
(1) At this time, the refrigerant tubes (and electrical
wiring if local codes permit) should be taped
together with armoring tape in 1 bundle. To prevent the condensation from overflowing the drain
pan, keep the drain hose separate from the refrigerant tubing.
Clamp
(2) Wrap the armoring tape from the bottom of the
outdoor unit to the top of the tubing where it
enters the wall. As you wrap the tubing, overlap
half of each previous tape turn.
Insulated tubes Drain hose
(3) Clamp the tubing bundle to the wall, using 1
clamp approx. each meter. (Fig. 7-10)
NOTE
Fig. 7-10
Do not wind the armoring tape too tightly since this
will decrease the heat insulation effect. Also ensure
that the condensation drain hose splits away from the
bundle and drips clear of the unit and the tubing.
Apply putty here
7-5. Finishing the Installation
After finishing insulating and taping over the tubing,
use sealing putty to seal off the hole in the wall to prevent rain and draft from entering. (Fig. 7-11)

CAFM1V
(1) Screw the M5 × 40 screws supplied (in the unit packing) into 4 points on the flange surface of the unit bolted to
the ceiling. Insert the screws so that the distance between the bottom of the screw head and the bottom surface
of the flange is at least 19.05 mm. (Fig. 9-1)
(2) Next, lift the ceiling panel in this position so that the 4 protruding screws pass through the key hole-shaped
openings in the panel, then shift the panel sideways until it is caught by the screws.
(3) Keeping the ceiling panel in this position, check to see if the joining edge of the ceiling panels are in line with
those of the ceiling material. If they are not in line, remove the ceiling panel and finely adjust the suspension
position of the unit.
(4) Once the joining edges are properly aligned with each other, install the supplied stoppers into the key holeshaped openings, then insert the 4 screws until the ceiling panel touches the flange surface of the unit.

leaving a length of wiring that is long enough to
permit removal of the adjustable corner cap.
(Fig. 11-3)
(5) Install the receiver unit in the panel. At this time,
slide the receiver unit so that each of the 3 tabs
fits into its respective hole. Take care that the
wires are not pinched. (Fig. 11-4)
Remove the packing, twist
the wires together and fasten
them with the cable fastener.
Then replace the packing.

<Installation location>
DSAFM
Do not install in a location where the air contains oil
mist, such as in a kitchen or factory.
Do not install next to a window, or in any other
location directly exposed to sunlight and outside
air.
Do not install nearby devices which can be expected to produce electrical noise, such as elevators,
automatic doors, and industrial sewing machines.
If the receiver unit is installed near a rapid-start
type or inverter-type fluorescent lamp (a lamp
which does not include a glow lamp), it may not be
possible to receive the wireless remote controller
signal in some cases. In order to prevent interference from fluorescent lamps, leave a minimum of 2
meters between the receiver unit and the fluorescent lamps, and install the receiver unit in a location where it can receive the wireless remote controller signal when the fluorescent lamps are lit.
