AHRI Data cont.
The performance standard AHRI/ASHRAE/ISO 13256-1 became effective January 1, 2000 and replaces ARI Standards 320, 325, and
330. This new standard has three major categories: Water Loop (comparable to ARI 320), Ground Water (ARI 325), and Ground Loop (ARI
330). Although these standards are similar there are some differences:
Unit of Measure: The Cooling COP
The cooling efficiency is measured in EER (US version measured in Btuh per Watt. The Metric version is measured in a cooling COP
(Watt per Watt) similar to the traditional COP measurement.
Water Conditions Differences
Entering water temperatures have changed to reflect the centigrade temperature scale. For instance the water loop heating test is
performed with 68°F (20°C) water rounded down from the old 70°F (21.1°C).
Air Conditions Differences
Entering air temperatures have also changed (rounded down) to reflect the centigrade temperature scale. For instance the cooling
tests are performed with 80.6°F (27°C) dry bulb and 66.2°F (19°C) wet bulb entering air instead of the traditional 80°F (26.7°C) DB
and 67°F (19.4°C) WB entering air temperatures. 80.6/66.2 data may be converted to 80/67 using the entering air correction table.
This represents a significantly lower relative humidity than the old 80/67 of 50% and will result in lower latent capacities.
Pump Power Correction Calculation
Within each model, only one water flow rate is specified for all three groups and pumping Watts are calculated using the following
formula. This additional power is added onto the existing power consumption.
• Pump power correction = (gpm x 0.0631) x (Press Drop x 2990) / 300
Where ‘gpm’ is waterflow in gpm and ‘Press Drop’ is the pressure drop through the unit heat exchanger at rated water flow in feet of
head.
Blower Power Correction Calculation
Blower power is corrected to zero external static pressure using the following equation. The nominal airflow is rated at a
specific external static pressure. This effectively reduces the power consumption of the unit and increases cooling capacity but decreases heating capacity. These Watts are significant enough in most cases to increase EER and COPs fairly dramatically over ARI
320, 325, and 330 ratings.
• Blower Power Correction = (cfm x 0.472) x (esp x 249) / 300
Where ‘cfm’ is airflow in cfm and ‘esp’ is the external static pressure at rated airflow in inches of water gauge.
ISO Capacity and Efficiency Calculations
The following equations illustrate cooling calculations:
• ISO Cooling Capacity = Cooling Capacity (Btuh) + (Blower Power Correction (Watts) x 3.412)
• ISO EER Efficiency (W/W) = ISO Cooling Capacity (Btuh) x 3.412 / [Power Input (Watts) - Blower Power Correction (Watts) + Pump
Power Correction (Watt)]
The following equations illustrate heating calculations:
• ISO Heating Capacity = Heating Capacity (Btuh) - (Blower Power Correction (Watts) x 3.412)
• ISO COP Efficiency (W/W) = ISO Heating Capacity (Btuh) x 3.412 / [Power Input (Watts) - Blower Power Correction (Watts) + Pump
Power Correction (Watt)]

Components are sequenced and delayed for optimum unit performance.
The “Fan Only” setting provides constant blower operation.
Short Cycle Protection and Random Start
The control allows a minimum on or off time of 5 minutes for short
cycle protection. A random time delay of 0 to 30 seconds is generated after each power-up to prevent simultaneous start up of all
units within a building after the release from an unoccupied cycle or
power loss.
In the “Heat” mode, a call for heat by the thermostat closes the
compressor contactor contacts, energizing the compressor, which
will run until the thermostat is satisfied.
In the “Cool” mode, a call for cooling by the
thermostat energizes the reversing valve and closes the compressor contactor contacts, energizing the compressor, which will run
until the thermostat is satisfied.
Night Setback
A grounded signal to common or connecting 24 VAC to the NS
terminal will initiate the night setback mode.

electric heater contactor, energizing the electric heat elements and
blower, which will run until the thermostat is satisfied. When the
internally mounted mode switch is in the “Normal/Boilerless” mode
the unit operates in its normal “Heat/Cool” operation, unless there
is an aquastat controller. When the normally open circuit of the
aquastat closes and the unit is in the heating mode, it will switch to
the “Emergency Heat” condition until the thermostat is satisfied or
the aquastat opens restarting the compressor.
A grounded signal to common or connecting 24 VAC to the LS terminal places the controller into the load shed mode. The compressor will become disabled and the blower will start upon a thermostat call for heating or cooling.
Emergency Shutdown
A grounded signal to common or connecting 24 VAC to the ES
terminal places the controller into the emergency shutdown mode.
The compressor and blower operation are suspended while in the
emergency shutdown mode.
Condensate Overflow Protection
The board incorporates an impedance liquid sensor at the top of
the condensate drain pan. Upon a continuous 30-second sensing
of the condensate, the cooling operation of the unit is suspended.
If either the low or high pressure safety switches are opened, the
compressor and reversing valve are disabled by the lockout relay.
Unit operation will resume only after the voltage to the unit is interrupted or the mode switch is placed in the “Off” position.
Safety Controls
The microprocessor board receives separate signals from a high
pressure switch for safety, a low pressure switch to prevent loss
of refrigerant charge and a low suction temperature thermistor for
freeze detection. Upon a continuous 30-second measurement of
the fault (immediate for high pressure), compressor operation is
stopped.
If the electric heat limit switches are opened, the electric heat is
disabled.

The optional FX10 control provides unparalleled capability in
several areas including performance monitoring, zoning, humidity,
energy management, and service diagnosis, and then communicates it all thru standard DDC protocols like N2, Lon and BACnet
(MS/TP @ 19,200 Baud rate).
Optional Plug-in Communication Modules (compatible with standard BAS protocols)
• Open N2
• LonTalk
• BACnet (MS/TP @ 19,200 Baud rate)
The most unique feature is integrating the FX10 into the G Series
as both the heat pump and DDC controller providing both a cost
advantage and providing features not typically found on WLHP
controls. This integration allows heat pump monitoring sensors,
status and service diagnosis faults to be communicated thru the
DDC direct to the building automation system (BAS), giving building supervisors detailed and accurate information on every piece
of equipment without removing an access panel.
Display
Requires DLI Card/Kit. Up to 2 displays, either 1 local and 1
remote, or 2 remote. (A 2-display configuration requires identical
displays.) Local display can be up to 3 meters from the controller, power supply, and data communication. Remote display can
be up to 300 meters from the controller. Remote display must be
independently powered with data communication done via 3 pole
shielded cable.
FX10 Advanced Control Overview
The Johnson Controls FX10 board is specifically designed for commercial heat pumps and provides control of the entire unit as well
as input ports for Open N2, LonTalk, BACnet (MS/TP @ 19,200
Baud rate) communication protocols as well as an input port for
a user interface. The user interface is an accessory item that can
be used to aid in diagnostics and unit setup. A 16-pin low voltage
terminal board provides terminals for common field connections.
The FX10 Control provides:
• Operational sequencing
• High and low-pressure switch monitoring
• General lockout
• Freeze detection
• Condensate overflow sensing
• Lockout mode control
• Emergency shutdown mode
• Random start and short cycle protection

Optional FX10 Microprocessor
and BAS Interface
The FX10 is a microprocessor
based control that not only
monitors and controls the
heat pump but also can
communicate any of this
information back to the
building automation system
(BAS). This means that
not only does the control
monitor the heat pump
at the unit you can also
monitor and control many the features over the BAS. This clearly
puts the FX10 in a class of its own.
Short Cycle Protection
Allows a minimum compressor “off” time of four minutes and a
minimum “on” time of two minutes.
Random Start
A delay of 1 to 120 seconds is generated after each power-up to
prevent simultaneous startup of all units within a building after the
release from an unoccupied cycle or power loss.
Emergency Shutdown
A field-applied dry contact can be used to place the control into
emergency shutdown mode. During this mode, all outputs on the
board are disabled.

ASTON SERIES CONSOLE SPECIFICATION CATALOG
Controls - FX10 cont.
Control and Safety Feature Details
The control will enumerate all fault conditions (HP, LP, CO, LOC,
and freeze detection) over a BAS as well as display them on a
medium user interface (MUI). HP, LP, CO and freeze detection
faults can all be reset over a BAS. A Loss Of Charge fault can not
be reset or bypassed until the problem has been corrected. A MUI
is invaluable as a service tool for the building service team.
Emergency Shutdown
The emergency shutdown mode can be activated by a command
from a facility management system or a closed contact on BI-2.
The default state for the emergency shutdown data point is off.
When the emergency shutdown mode is activated, all outputs will
be turned off immediately and will remain off until the emergency
shutdown mode is de-activated. The first time the compressor
starts after the emergency shutdown mode has been de-activated,
there will be a random start delay present.
The unit can be commanded to run by a typical heat pump thermostat or run based on heating and cooling set points supplied by a
BAS. The control board is wired with quick connect harnesses for
easy field change out of a bad control board. All ECM2.3 variable
blower speed settings can be changed over a BAS or with a MUI.
The control has an input programmed to enable field installed
emergency heat in the event that the compressor is locked out.
This input can also be commanded on from a BAS as needed.
An alarm history can be viewed through the MUI and will be held
in memory until the unit is power cycled. Relative humidity can
be read by a 0-5VDC humidity sensor that is displayed over the
network. If you are using an ECM2.3 blower motor the control can
enable dehumidification mode based on a set point in the control.
The dehumidification set point itself can also be changed over a
BAS or with a MUI. Dehumidification mode can also be enabled
by the BAS. Because the FX10 is not factory configured to read
CO2 levels, contact the factory for application assistance.
Lockout Mode
Lockout mode can be activated by any of the following fault
signals: refrigerant system high pressure, refrigerant system low
pressure, freeze detection , and condensate overflow. When any
valid fault signal remains continuously active for the length of its
recognition delay, the controller will go into fault retry mode, which
will turn off the compressor. After the Compressor short cycle delay,
the compressor will attempt to operate once again. If three consecutive faults occur in 60 minutes during a single heating or cooling demand, the unit will go into lockout mode, turning off the compressor,
enabling the alarm output, and setting the blower back to low speed
operation until the controller is reset. If the control faults due to the
low pressure input (BI-3) being open during the pre-compressor
startup check, the control will go into lockout mode immediately, disabling the compressor from starting and enabling the alarm output
(BO-6). The lockout condition can be reset by powering down the
controller, by a command from the BAS, or by the holding the ESC
and Return keys on the MUI for 5 seconds.
The FX10 control has unused analog and digital inputs for field
installed items such as air temperature, water temperature, CO2 or
current status switches. The control has unused binary and PWM
outputs that can be commanded over the BAS for field use. An optional Medium User Interface (MUI) for control setup and advanced
diagnostics is available with some mounting kits, MUIK1 - Panel
mount version and the MUIK2-Wall mount version.
Freeze Detection Limit (AI-5)
The freeze detection limit sensor will monitor the liquid refrigerant temperature entering the water coil in the heating mode. If the
temperature drops below the freeze detection limit trip point for
the recognition delay period, the condition will be recognized as a
fault. The freeze detection limit trip point will be factory set for 30°F
and will be field selectable for 15°F by removing a jumper wire on
BI-5. The freeze detection limit fault condition will be bypassed 2
minutes at normal compressor startup, to allow the refrigeration
circuit to stabilize. If the freeze detection limit sensor becomes
unreliable at any time compressor operation will immediately be
suspended until the problem is corrected. This should be displayed
as an alarm on the BAS and the MUI. This alarm will be reported a
“Water Low Temp Limit” fault.
Zone Sensors
There are two options for zone sensors that can be used with the
FX10 control. Both sensors use a Johnson controls A99 positive
temperature coefficient type sensor. The TAXXJ02 has a set point
adjustment now which will give the end user a +/- 5°F adjustment
from the set point as well as a push button that can be used for temporary occupancy. The control leaves the factory set to operate with
a TAXXJ02 sensor and can be changed to read the TAXXA01 sensor through a building automation system or with a user interface.

Condensate Overflow
Compressor Short Cycle Delay Time
The condensate overflow sensing circuit will monitor the condensate level as a resistance input to AI-3. If the condensate water
level rises resulting in the input resistance rising above the set point
for the recognition delay period, the condition will be recognized as
a fault. The condensate will be subjected to a (30) second lockout
delay which requires that the fault be sensed for a continuous (30)
seconds before suspending unit operation.
The compressor short cycle time delay will ensure that the compressor output will not be enabled for a minimum of (5) minutes
after it is disabled. This allows for the system refrigerant pressures
to equalize after the compressor is disabled.
Heating Cycle
On a call for heating, the blower enable output and accessory
output 2 will turn on immediately after the random start delay timer
has been satisfied. If the compressor short cycle time delay has
been satisfied, the compressor will turn on after the blower enable
and accessory output 2 are on and the fixed compressor start delay
timers have been satisfied.
Alarm Output (BO-6)
The alarm output will be enabled when the control is in the lockout
mode and will be disabled when the lockout is reset.
Test Mode
Raising the zone temperature input (AI-1) reading to 180–220°F or
by holding the ESC and down arrow keys on the MUI for 5 seconds
will put the control into test mode. In test mode the random start
delay and the compressor fixed on delay time will both be shortened to 5 seconds and the reversing valve will be allowed to cycle
with out shutting down the compressor. If an MUI is connected to
the control LED 8 will flash and the words “Test Mode Enabled” will
be shown on the LCD display when the control is in test mode. Test
mode will be disabled after a power cycle, 30 minute timeout, or by
holding the ESC and Up arrow keys on the MUI.
Auxiliary heat output can be controlled over the BAS.
Set Point Control Mode
In set point control mode the reversing valve output will be
disabled. As the temperature drops below the heating set point
and begins to operate in the heating proportional band, the low
capacity compressor output (BO-2) will be enabled. A PI loop
in the programming of the control will determine when the full
capacity compressor output (BO-4) is to be enabled. The compressor must be operating in low capacity for a minimum of 30
seconds before the full capacity compressor output can be enabled. During low capacity compressor operation the ECM2.3
blower will operate in medium speed and will operate in high
speed when the compressor is operating at full capacity.
Sequence of Operation
Power Fail Restart
When the controller is first powered up, the outputs will be disabled
for a random start delay. The delay is provided to prevent simultaneous starting of multiple heat pumps. Once the timer expires, the
controller will operate normally.
Thermostat Control Mode
In thermostat mode the compressor will be cycled based on
Y1 and Y2 calls from a room thermostat. When the control
receives a Y1 command (BI-7) from the thermostat the low
capacity compressor output (BO2) will be enabled and the
ECM2.3 blower will operate in medium speed. When the control receives a Y2 command (BI-8) from the thermostat the full
capacity compressor output will be enabled and the ECM2.3
blower will operate in high speed. During the heating cycle the
reversing valve will be commanded into the off position.
Random Start Delay
This delay will be used after every power failure, as well as the first
time the compressor is started after the control exits the unoccupied
mode or the emergency shutdown mode. The delay should not be
less than 1 second and not longer than 120 seconds. If the control is
in test mode the random start delay will be shortened to 5 seconds.
Compressor Fixed On Delay Time
Cooling Cycle
The Compressor Fixed On Delay Time will ensure that the compressor
output (B02) is not enabled for (90) seconds after the control receives
a call to start the compressor. This delay is adjustable from 30 –
300 seconds over a BAS or a MUI. If the control is in test mode the
Compressor Fixed On Delay Timer will be shortened to 5 seconds.
On a call for cooling, the blower enable output and accessory
output 2 will turn on immediately after the random start delay timer
has been satisfied. If the compressor short cycle time delay has
been satisfied, the compressor will turn on after the blower enable
and accessory output 2 are on and the fixed compressor start delay
timers have been satisfied.
Compressor Minimum On Delay
Set Point Control Mode
In set point control mode the reversing valve output will be
enabled. As the temperature falls below the cooling set point
and begins to operate in the cooling proportional band, the low
capacity compressor output (BO-2) will be enabled. A PI loop
in the programming of the control will determine when the full
capacity compressor output (BO-4) is to be enabled. The compressor must be operating in low capacity for a minimum of 30
seconds before the full capacity compressor output can be enabled. During low capacity compressor operation the ECM2.3
blower will operate in medium speed and will operate in high
speed when the compressor is operating at full capacity.
The compressor minimum on delay will ensure that the compressor
output is enabled for a minimum of (2) minute each time the
compressor output is enabled. This will apply in every instance
except in the event the high pressure switch is tripped or emergency
shutdown then the compressor output will be disable immediately.

reversing valve will be commanded into the “ON” position.
Field Selectable Options
Freeze Detection Limit Set Point (BI-5)
The freeze detection limit set point input allows you to adjust the
freeze detection limit set point (AI-5). When the jumper is installed
on BI-5 (Wire #24) the freeze detection limit set point is factory
set for 30°F. When the jumper on BI-5 (Wire #24) is removed the
freeze detection limit set point will be 15°F.
Accessory Outputs (BO-7 and BO-8)
Accessory Output 1 will be energized 90 seconds prior to the
compressor output being energized. Accessory Output 2 will be
energized with the blower output (BO-1). When the corresponding
compressor output is turned off the accessory output will be deactivated immediately. These outputs are selectable for normally open
or normally closed operation through the Medium User interface or
through the Building Automation System.
ECM2.3 Blower Operation
Blower speeds will be selected through the user interface or the
facility management system. There will be a total of 12 speeds
selectable with only three being selected at any one time. The
lowest numbered speed selection set to ON will select the lowspeed blower setting, the middle selection set to ON will select the
medium-speed blower setting and the highest selection set to ON
will select the high-speed blower setting. If all selections are set to
OFF the software shall select speed setting 10 for low-speed, 11 for
medium-speed, and will select speed setting 12 for high speed. If
only one selection is set to ON, that selection will set the low-speed
blower setting, the medium-speed setting will be 11, and the highspeed setting will be speed 12. The maximum low-speed setting
will be speed 10 and the minimum high-speed setting will be speed
3. In addition there is a low limit setting in the software to prevent the
ECM2.3 blower speed from being set below acceptable limits for each
unit size.

ECM2.3 Blower air flow “Soft Switch Settings”
SINGLE and DUAL STAGE WATER-TO-AIR
A set of 12 “soft switches” accessible through the user interface
or building automation system are used to select the three blower
speed settings for the ECM2.3 blower motor. The 12 soft switches
work in exactly the same way as the hardware switches used on the
Premier control (Refer to Blower Performance Data - ECM2.3 Motor
for proper settings). No more than three soft switches may be set to
the “ON” position. The first “ON” switch (the lowest number switch)
determines the “low speed fan” setting. The second determines
the “medium speed fan” setting, and the third determines the “high
speed fan” setting.
Emergency Heat/Network Enabled Output (BO5)
This output is set from the factory to enable/disable emergency
heat. If a problem occurs with the unit resulting in the compressor
being locked out in heating mode, the control will automatically enable this output to turn on field installed electric heat. This output is
interlocked with the blower proving input BI-6 (Blower proving sensors must be field supplied and installed). BI-6 must be connected
to PB2 position 3 (see unit schematic) in the field if no blower proving sensor is desired. There is a configurable parameter available
through a BAS network that must be enabled if this output is to be
commanded over the BAS network.
MUI Alarm History Reporting
If a fault occurs the fault will be recorded in history for display on
the medium user interface in the History Menu. Each fault type will
be displayed in the history menu with a number between 0 and 3.
A reading of 3+ will mean that fault has occurred more than three
times in the past. The history menu can be cleared with a power

Application Notes
The Closed Loop Heat Pump Concept
comfortable since each unit operates separately, allowing cooling
in one area and heating in another. Tenant spaces can be
finished and added as needed. Power billing to tenants is also
convenient since each unit can be individually metered: each pays
for what each uses. Nighttime and/or weekend uses of certain
areas are possible without heating or cooling the entire facility.
A decentralized system also means if one unit should fault, the
rest of the system will continue to operate normally, as well as
eliminating air cross-contamination problems and expensive high
pressure duct systems requiring an inefficient electric resistance
reheat mode.
The basic principle of a water source heat pump is the transfer
of heat into water from the space during cooling, or the transfer
of heat from water into the space during heating. Extremely high
levels of energy efficiency are achieved as electricity is used only
to move heat, not to produce it. Using a typical G Series, one unit
of electricity will move four to five units of heat.
When multiple water source heat pumps are combined on a
common circulating loop, the ultimate in energy efficiency is
created: Units on cooling mode are adding heat to the loop which
the units in heating mode can absorb, thus removing heat from the
area where cooling is needed, recovering and redistributing that
heat for possible utilization elsewhere in the system. In modern
commercial structures, this characteristic of heat recovery from
core area heat generated by lighting, office equipment, computers,
solar radiation, people or other sources, is an important factor in
the high efficiency and low operating costs of closed source heat
pump systems.
The G Series Approach
There are a number of proven choices in the type of G Series
system which would be best for any given application. Most often
considered are:
Vertical - Closed Loop/Ground Source
Return Water
Heater/
Rejector

In the event that a building's net heating and cooling requirements
create loop temperature extremes, G Series units have the
extended range capacity and versatility to maintain a comfortable
environment for all building areas. Excess heat can be stored
for later utilization or be added or removed in one of three ways;
by ground-source heat exchanger loops: plate heat exchangers
connected to other water sources, or conventional cooler/boiler
configurations. Your representative has the expertise and computer
software to assist in determining optimum system type for specific
applications.
• Closed Loop/Ground-Source Systems utilize the stable
temperatures of the earth to maintain proper water source
temperatures (via vertical or horizontal closed loop heat
exchangers) for G Series extended range heat pump system.
Sizes range from a single unit through many hundreds of
units. When net cooling requirements cause closed loop water
temperatures to rise, heat is dissipated into the cooler earth
through buried high strength plastic pipe “heat exchangers.”
Conversely if net space heating demands cause loop heat
absorption beyond that heat recovered from building core areas,
the loop temperature will fall causing heat to be extracted from the
earth. Due to the extended loop temperatures, AHRI/ISO 13256-1
Ground Loop Heat Pumps are required for this application.
Because auxiliary equipment such as a fossil fuel boiler and
The Closed Loop Advantage
A properly applied water source heat pump system offers many
advantages over other systems. First costs are low because
units can be added to the loop on an “as needed basis”- perfect
for speculative buildings. Installed costs are low since units are
self-contained and can be located adjacent to the occupied
space, requiring minimal ductwork. Maintenance can be done
on individual units without system shut-down. Conditions remain

cooling tower are not required to maintain the loop temperature,
operating and maintenance costs are very low.
Plate Heat Exchanger - Closed Loop/Ground Water
Ground-source systems are most applicable in residential and
light commercial buildings where both heating and cooling are
desired, and on larger envelope dominated structures where core
heat recovery will not meet overall heating loads. Both vertical
and horizontally installed closed-loops can be used. The land
space required for the “heat exchangers” is 100-250 sq. ft./ton on
vertical (drilled) installations and 750-1500 sq. ft./ton for horizontal
(trenched) installations. Closed loop heat exchangers can be
located under parking areas or even under the building itself.
On large multi-unit systems, sizing the closed loop heat exchanger
to meet only the net heating loads and assisting cooling loads with a
closed circuit cooling tower may be the most cost effective choice.
Surface Water - Closed Loop/Ground Source
• Closed Loop/Ground Water Plate Heat Exchanger
Systems utilize lake, ocean, well water or other water sources
to maintain closed loop water temperatures in multi-unit G Series
systems. A plate frame heat exchanger isolates the units from any
contaminating effects of the water source, and allows periodic
cleaning of the heat exchanger during off peak hours.
Operation and benefits are similar to those for ground-source
systems. Due to the extended loop temperatures, AHRI/
ISO 13256-1 Ground Loop Heat Pumps are required for this
application. Closed loop plate heat exchanger systems are
applicable in commercial, marine, or industrial structures where the
many benefits of a water source heat pump system are desired,
regardless of whether the load is heating or cooling dominated.
• Closed Loop/Ground-Source Surface Water Systems also
utilize the stable temperatures of Surface Water to maintain
proper water source temperatures for G Series extended range
heat pump systems. These systems have all of the advantages of
horizontal and vertical closed loop systems. Due to the extended
loop temperatures, AHRI/ISO 13256-1 Ground Water or Ground
Loop Heat Pumps are required for this application.
In cooling dominated structures, the ground-source surface water
systems can be very cost effective especially where local building
codes require water retention ponds for short term storage of
surface run-off. Sizing requirements for the surface water is a
minimum of 500 sq. ft./lon of surface area at a minimum depth of 8
feet. WaterFumace should be contacted when designs for heating
dominated structures are required.

Application Notes cont.
• Closed Loop /Cooler-Boiler Systems utilize a closed heat
recovering loop with multiple water source heat pumps in the
more conventional manner. Typically a boiler is employed to
maintain closed loop temperatures above 60°r and a cooling tower
to maintain loop temperatures below 90°F. These systems are
applicable in medium to large buildings regardless of whether the
load is heating or cooling dominated. Due to the moderate loop
temperatures, AHRI/ISO 13256-1 Water Loop Heat Pumps are
required for this application.
Cooler/Boiler - Closed Loop
Water Quality
In areas with extremely hard water, the owner should be informed
that the heat exchanger may require occasional flushing.
In ground water situations where scaling could be heavy or where
biological growth such as iron bacteria will be present, a closed
loop system is recommended. The heat exchanger coils in ground
water systems may, over a period of time, lose heat exchange
capabilities due to a buildup of mineral deposits inside. These
can be cleaned, but only by a qualified service mechanic, as
special solutions and pumping equipment are required. Hot water
generator coils can likewise become scaled and possibly plugged.
Material
Units with cupronickel heat exchangers are recommended for
open loop applications due to the increased resistance to build-up
and corrosion, along with reduced wear caused by acid cleaning.
Failure to adhere to the guidelines in the water quality table could
result in loss of warranty.

Installation Notes
Typical Unit Installation
WARNING: Before performing service or maintenance
operations on a system, turn off main power switches to the
indoor unit. If applicable, turn off the accessory heater power
switch. Electrical shock could cause personal injury.
Unit Location
Locate the unit in an indoor area that allows for easy removal of
the filter and access panels. Location should have enough space
for service personnel to perform maintenance or repair. Provide
sufficient room to make water and electrical connection(s). Any
access panel screws that would be difficult to remove after the unit
is installed should be removed prior to setting the unit. Care should
be taken when units are located in unconditioned spaces to
prevent damage from frozen water lines and excessive heat
that could damage electrical components.
Installing and servicing heating and air conditioning equipment can
be hazardous due to system pressure and electrical components.
Only trained and qualified service personnel should install, repair
or service heating and air conditioning equipment. Untrained
personnel can perform the basic maintenance functions of cleaning
coils and cleaning and replacing filters.
All other operations should be performed by trained service
personnel. When working on heating and air conditioning
equipment, observe precautions in the literature, tags and labels
attached to the unit and other safety precautions that may apply.
Follow all safety codes. Wear safety glasses and work gloves.
Use a quenching cloth for brazing operations and have a fire
extinguisher available.
Installing Console Units
Console units are available in left or right air return configurations.
Units should be mounted level on the floor. It is not necessary to
anchor the unit to the floor.

ports for serviceability. The proper water flow must be provided
to each unit whenever the unit operates. To assure proper flow,
use pressure/temperature ports to determine the flow rate. These
ports should be located at the supply and return water connections
on the unit. The proper flow rate cannot be accurately set without
measuring the water pressure drop through the refrigerant-to-water
heat exchanger. Check carefully for water leaks.
Piping is usually design as ‘reverse return’ to equalize flow paths
through each unit. A short flexible pressure rated hose is used to
make connection to the fixed building piping system. This hose
is typically stainless steel braid and includes a swivel fitting on
one end for easy removal and is flexible to help isolate the unit
for quieter operation . Isolation valves for servicing, y-strainers for
filtering and memory-stop flow valve or a balancing valve can be
provided for consistent water flow through the unit.
Condensate Drain
On console units, the internal condensate drain assembly consists
of a drain tube which is connected to the drain pan. A condensate
tube is inside all cabinets as a trapping loop; therefore, an external
trap is not necessary.
All unit source water connections are fittings that accept a male
pipe thread (MPT). Insert the connectors by hand, then tighten
the fitting with a wrench to provide a leakproof joint. The open and
closed loop piping system should include pressure/temperature

Selection Example
To achieve optimal performance, proper selection of each heat
pump is essential. A building load program should be used to
determine the heating and cooling load of each zone. WFI Select
computer software selection program can then be used to develop
an accurate and complete heat pump schedule. WFI Select can
be obtained from your local representative.
be selected on cooling capacity only since the heating output is
usually greater than the cooling capacity.
Step 6: Determine the correction factors associated with the
variable factors of dry bulb and wet bulb.
Corrected Total Cooling = tabulated total cooling x wet bulb
correction.
Corrected Sensible Cooling = tabulated sensible cooling x wet/dry
bulb correction.
While WFI Select is the easiest and most accurate method to size
and select equipment, however, selection can still be accomplished
manually using this manual and the following selection procedure.
Sizing so that the actual sensible capacity of the equipment will
satisfy the sensible capacity of the zone is the recommended
method for best results.
Step 7: Compare the corrected capacities to the load
requirements. Normally if the capacities are within 10% of the
loads, the equipment is acceptable. It is better to undersize than
oversize, as undersizing improves humidity control, reduces sound
levels and extends the life of the equipment.
Boiler/Tower Application
Typical boiler/tower application will result in entering water
temperatures of 60-90°F with 70°F for heating and 90°F for
cooling. Water to refrigerant insulation option would not be
required. Flow rates are 2.5 to 3 gpm per ton with 2.5 gpm per ton
often representing an economical design point.
Step 8: When complete, calculate water temperature rise and
assess the selection. If the units selected are not within 10% of
the load calculations, then review what effect changing the GPM,
water temperature and/or air flow and air temperature would
have on the corrected capacities. If the desired capacity cannot
be achieved, select the next larger or smaller unit and repeat the
procedure. Remember, when in doubt, undersize slightly for best
performance.
Geothermal Application
Typical geothermal application can result in a wide entering
water temperature range of 30-100°F. Typically minimum heating
entering water temperatures can range from 30 to 50°F depending
upon loop type and geographical location. Cooling performance
should be calculated using a maximum loop temperature of 100°F
in most loop applications. Water flow is typically 2.5 to 3 gpm per
ton with 3 gpm per ton recommended with the more extreme loop
temperatures. PLEASE NOTE THAT WATER COIL INSULATION
OPTION SHOULD BE SELECTED WHEN ENTERING WATER
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BE BELOW 45-50°F.
Example Equipment Selection - Cooling
1. Load Determination:
Assume we have determined that the appropriate cooling load
at the desired dry bulb 75°F and wet bulb 60°F conditions is as
follows:
Total Cooling............................................................. 14,800 BTUH
Sensible Cooling.......................................................11,200 BTUH
Entering Air Temp...........................75°F Dry Bulb / 60°F Wet Bulb
Geothermal Selection Example
2. Design Conditions:
Similarly, we have also obtained the following design parameters:
Entering Water Temp.............................................................100°F
Water Flow (Based upon 10°F rise in temp.) 5.5 GPM
Air Flow Required............................................................ 450 CFM
Step 1: Determine the actual heating and cooling loads at the
desired dry bulb and wet bulb conditions.
Step 2: Obtain the following de sign parameters: Entering water
temperature, water flow rate in GPM, air flow in CFM, water flow
pressure drop and design wet and dry bulb temperatures. Air flow
CFM should be between 300 and 450 CFM per ton. Unit water
pressure drop should be kept as close as possible to each other to
make water balancing easier. Go to the appropriate tables and find
the proper indicated water flow and water temperature.
3, 4 & 5. HP Selection:
After making our preliminary selection (GC18), we enter the tables
at design water flow and water temperature and read
Total Cooling, Sens. Cooling and Heat of Rej. capacities:
Total Cooling............................................................. 16,600 BTUH
Sensible Cooling...................................................... 12,600 BTUH
Heat of Rejection...................................................... 21,400 BTUH
Step 3: Select a unit based on total and sensible cooling
conditions. Select a unit which is closest to, but no larger than, the
actual cooling load.
Step 4: Enter tables at the design water flow and water
temperature. Read the total and sensible cooling capacities (Note:
interpolation is permissible, extrapolation is not).
6 & 7. Entering Air and Airflow Corrections:
Next, we determine our correction factors. (Refer to Correction
Factor Tables - Air Flow and Entering Air correction tables — using
450 cfm. or 450÷500 nom. = 90%).
Corrected Total Cooling = 16,600 x 0.982 x 0.897 = 14,622
Corrected Sens Cooling = 12,600 x 0.933 x 0.995 = 11,697
Corrected Heat of Reject = 21,400 x 0.980 x 0.895 = 18,770
Step 5: Read the heating capacity. If it exceeds the design criteria
it is acceptable. It is quite normal for water source heat pumps to

8. Water Temperature Rise Calculation & Assessment:
Note: 500 = parameters for water & 485 = parameters for
antifreeze solutions to 30% weight.
HR = 500 x GPM x (Tin - Tout)
HR
= (Tin - Tout) or ∆T Rise
500 x GPM
18,770
= 6.83 °F Rise
500 x 5.5
When we compare the Corrected Total Cooling and Corrected
Sensible Cooling figures with our load requirements stated in Step
1, we discover that our selection is within +10% of our sensible
load requirement. Further more, we see that our Corrected Total
Cooling figure is within 1,000 Btuh of the actual indicated load.

Warning: Gray area represents antifreeze concentrations greater than 35% by weight and
should be avoided due to the extreme performance penalty they represent.
Antifreeze Correction Example
Antifreeze solution is Propylene Glycol 20% by weight. Determine the corrected heating and cooling performance at 30°F and 90°F
respectively as well as pressure drop at 30°F for an G Series Console GC*18.
The corrected cooling capacity at 90°F would be: 17,100 MBtuh x 0.969 = 16,569 MBtuh
The corrected heating capacity at 30°F would be: 14,300 MBtuh x 0.913 = 13,056 MBtuh
The corrected pressure drop at 30°F and 5.5 GPM would be: 18.2 feet of head x 1.270 = 23.1 feet of head

Notes to Performance Data Tables
•

Performance ratings are based on 80°F DB / 67°F WB EAT for cooling and 70°F DB EAT for heating.
Three flow rates are shown for each unit. The lowest flow rate shown is used for geothermal open loop/well water systems with a minimum of 50°F EWT. The middle flow rate shown is the minimum geothermal closed loop flow rate. The highest flow rate shown is optimum for geothermal closed loop systems and the suggested flow rate for boiler/ tower applications.
The desuperheater numbers are based on a flow rate of 0.4 GPM/ton of rated capacity with an EWT of 90°F.
Entering water temperatures below 40°F assumes 15% antifreeze solution.
For non-standard EAT conditions, apply the appropriate correction factors on (Refer to Correction Factor Tables).
Interpolation between EWT, GPM and CFM data is permissible.

NOTE: Minimum/maximum limits are only for start-up conditions, and are meant
for bringing the space up to occupancy temperature. Units are not designed to
operate at the minimum/maximum conditions on a regular basis. The operating
limits are dependent upon three primary factors: 1) water temperature, 2) return
air temperature, and 3) ambient temperature. When any of the factors are at the
minimum or maximum levels, the other two factors must be at the normal level for
proper and reliable unit operation.

mounted console type with horizontal air inlet and up-flow air
discharge. Units shall be AHRI/ISO 13256-1 certified and listed by
a nationally recognized safety-testing laboratory or agency, such as
ETL Testing Laboratory. Each unit shall be computer run-tested at
the factory with conditioned water and operation verified to catalog
data. Each unit shall be mounted on a pallet and shipped in a
corrugated box or stretch-wrapped. The units shall be designed to
operate with entering liquid temperature between 20°F and 120°F
[-6.7°C and 48.9°C].
Compressors shall be high-efficiency single speed rotary type
designed for heat pump duty and mounted on durometer grommets
to provide vibration free compressor mounting. Compressor motors
shall be single-phase PSC with external overload protection.
The air coil shall be sized for low-face velocity and constructed of
lanced aluminum fins bonded to rifled copper tubes in a staggered
pattern not less than three rows deep for enhanced performance.
Option: FormiShieldTM air coil coating for maximum protection
against formicary corrosion.
The coaxial water-to-refrigerant heat exchanger shall be designed
for low water pressure drop and constructed of a convoluted copper
(cupronickel option) inner tube and a steel outer tube. Refrigerant
to air heat exchangers shall utilize enhanced corrugated lanced
aluminum fins and rifled copper tube construction rated to withstand
600 PSIG (4135 kPa) refrigerant working pressure. Refrigerant to
water heat exchangers shall be of copper inner water tube and
steel refrigerant outer tube design, rated to withstand 600 PSIG
(4135 kPa) working refrigerant pressure and 450 PSIG (3101 kPa)
working water pressure. The thermostatic expansion valve shall
provide proper superheat over the entire liquid temperature range
with minimal “hunting.” The valve shall operate bi-directionally
without the use of check valves.
Chassis & Cabinet
The cabinet shall be fabricated from heavy-gauge galvanized steel
and finished with a beige textured epoxy powder coating on both
sides for added protection. This corrosion protection system shall
meet the stringent 1000 hour salt spray test per ASTM B117.
The cabinet shall be easily removable to allow for ease of service
to the controls compartment, chassis, and piping. The top of the
cabinet and grille is a horizontally flat (optional sloped) surface with
a hinged control door cover. The return air filter shall be 1” (25.4
mm) fiberglass disposable type media.
Option: Cupro-nickel refrigerant to water heat exchanger shall
be of copper-nickel inner water tube and steel refrigerant outer tube
design, rated to withstand 600 PSIG (4135 kPa) working refrigerant
pressure and 450 PSIG (3101 kPa) working water pressure. Water
lines shall also be of cupronickel construction.
The return and supply air sections are insulated with a 1/4” (6.4 mm)
thick, dual density, 2 lb/ft3 (32 kg/m3) coated mat glass fiber with
edges sealed or tucked under flanges to prevent the introduction
of glass fibers into the discharge supply air through the aluminum
grille. Standard cabinet panel insulation must meet NFPA 90A
requirements, air erosion and mold growth limits of UL-181, stringent
fungal resistance test per ASTM-C1071 and ASTM G21, and shall
meet zero level bacteria growth per ASTM G22. Unit insulation must
meet these stringent requirements or unit(s) will not be accepted.
Option: ThermaShield coated water-to-refrigerant heat
exchanger, water lines and refrigerant suction lines shall be
insulated to prevent condensation at low liquid temperatures below
50°F.
Option: A Super Quiet Sound package shall include multi-density
full coverage compressor blanket.
Blower Motor & Assembly
The blower shall be a direct drive centrifugal type with a twin
dynamically balanced wheel. The housing and wheel shall be
designed for quiet, low outlet velocity operation. The blower
housing shall be constructed of galvanized steel and shall be
removable from the unit for servicing of the blower motor. The
blower motor shall be a two-speed type and shall be isolated from
the housing by rubber grommets. The motor shall be permanently
lubricated and have thermal overload protection.
Option: Shipped with motorized outside air damper and
damper assembly for 25% make-up air.
The drain pan shall be of stainless steel construction to inhibit
corrosion and bacterial growth. Drain outlet shall be located
on pan as to allow complete and unobstructed drainage of
condensate. The unit as standard will be supplied with solid-state
electronic condensate overflow protection with microprocessor or
FX10 option. Mechanical float switches WILL NOT be accepted.
Condensate tube shall be constructed of stainless steel and have
an internal factory installed condensate trap.

compartment and shall contain a 75VA transformer, 24 Volt
activated, 2 pole compressor contactor, and solid-state controller
for complete unit operation. Units shall be name-plated for use with
time delay fuses or HACR circuit breakers. Unit controls shall be
24 Volt and provide heating or cooling as required by the remote
thermostat/sensor.
Refrigerant Circuit
All units shall utilize the non-ozone depleting and low global
warming potential refrigerant R410A. All units shall contain a
sealed refrigerant circuit including a hermetic motor-compressor,
41
