Installation Step 2.6 Installing and connecting the assembly pipes to the refrigerant pipes (assembly pipe) Connect indoor and outdoor units with field-supplied copper pipes by means of flare connections. Use insulated seamless refrigeration grade pipe only, (Cu DHP type according to ISO1337), degreased and deoxidized, suitable for operating pressures of at least 4200 kPa and for burst pressure of at least 20700 kPa. Under no circumstances 40 English 1 Cut out the appropriate knock-out piece (A, B, C) on the rear of the indoor unit unless you connect the pipe directly from the rear. 2 Smooth the cut edges. 3 Remove the protection caps of the pipes and connect the assembly pipe to each pipe.

Step 2.8 Fixing the installation plate You can install the indoor unit on a wall, window frame, or gypsum board. WARNING • Make sure that the wall, window frame, or gypsum board can withstand the weight of the indoor unit. If you install the indoor unit in a place where it is not strong enough to withstand the unit's weight, the unit could fall and cause injury. When fixing the indoor unit on a wall Fix the installation plate to the wall giving attention to the weight of the indoor unit.

CAUTION 20 mm When fixing the indoor unit on a window frame 3 Attach the installation plate to the wooden upright using tapping screws. When fixing the indoor unit on a gypsum board 1 Use stud finder to find out locations of the studs. 2 Fix the plate hanger on two studs. CAUTION • If you fix the indoor unit on a gypsum board, use only specified anchor bolts on reference positions. Otherwise, the gypsum surrounding the joints may crumble over time and cause the screws to be loosened and stripped. This may lead to physical injury or equipment damage. • Search for other spots if there are less than two studs, or the distance between the studs are different from the plate hanger. • Fix the installation plate without inclining to one side. Outdoor Unit Installation Step 3.1 Fixing the outdoor unit in place X NOTE • Make sure that the wall can support the weights of the rack and the outdoor unit.

Installation Soft rubber designed to cut off residual vibration from outdoor unit to rack (not supplied with product) English 43 1 Leave the system in the standby mode. WARNING Control box Remove the screw for the control box cover Remove the gas and liquid service port caps • Do not turn on the system! This is necessary for better vacuum operation (full OPEN position of Electronic Expansion Valve). 2 Connect the charging hose of the low pressure side of manifold gauge to a gas service port as seen in the picture. For connecting the refrigerant pipes 3 Valve Gas service port <Low pressure> 4 15 minutes Vacuum Pump (Backward flowing prevention) Liquid service port <Low pressure> 5 Liquid service port <High pressure> Connect the gas and liquid refrigerant pipes Step 3.3 Evacuating the air The outdoor unit is loaded with sufficient R-410A refrigerant. Do not vent R-410A into atmosphere: it is a fluorinated greenhouse gas, covered by Kyoto Protocol, with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) = 2088. You should evacuate the air in the indoor unit and in the pipe. If air remains in the refrigerant pipes, it affects the compressor. It may cause reduction of cooling capacity and malfunction. Use a vacuum pump. Installation CAUTION • When installing, make sure there is no leakage. When recovering the refrigerant, ground the compressor first before removing the connection pipe. If the refrigerant pipe is not properly connected and the compressor works with the stop valve open, the pipe inhales the air and it makes the pressure inside of the refrigerant cycle abnormally high. It may cause explosion and injury. 44 English Liquid service port <High pressure> 3 Open the valve of the low pressure side of manifold gauge anticlockwise. 4 Evacuate the air in the connected pipes using the vacuum pump for about 15 minutes. • Make sure that pressure gauge shows -0.1 MPa (-76 cmHg, 5 torr) after about 10 minutes. This procedure is very important to avoid a gas leak. • Close the valve of the low pressure side of manifold gauge clockwise. • Turn off the vacuum pump. • Check for 2 minutes if there is any pressure change. • Remove the hose of the low pressure side of manifold gauge. 5 Set a valve cork of liquid and gas service port to the open position. Step 3.4 Adding refrigerant If you use a pipe longer than the length specified in the piping codes and standards, you must add 15g of refrigerant R-410A for each extra metre. If you use a pipe shorter than the length specified in the piping codes and standards, the evacuating time is normal. Refer to the Service Manual for further details. CAUTION • The remaining air in the Refrigeration cycle, which contains moisture, may cause malfunction of the compressor. • Always contact the service centre or a professional installation agency for product installation. R-410A is a mixed type of refrigerant. It is necessary for recharging under conditions of liquid. When recharging refrigerant from the refrigerant cylinder to the equipment, take the following instructions: Before recharging, check whether the cylinder has a siphon or not. There are two ways to recharge the refrigerant: Siphon Charge the refrigerant standing the cylinder upright. Charge the refrigerant turning the cylinder upside down. <Cylinder with siphon> <Cylinder without siphon> NOTE • If R-410A refrigerant is charged with gas, the composition of the charged refrigerant changes and the characteristics of the equipment vary. • During the measuring operation of refrigerant quantity added, use electronic scales. If cylinder doesn't have siphon, upset it. Installation English 45 Installation Inspection Step 4.1 Performing the gas leak tests 1 Before inspecting the leakage, use a torque wrench to close the cap for the stop valve.

Then take the following sub-steps: • In Cool mode, use the Temperature button to set the set temperature to 16 °C. • In Heat mode, use the Temperature button to set the set temperature to 30 °C. • Check whether, approximately 3 to 5 minutes later, the outdoor unit starts, and a cool or warm air blows out. • After 12 minutes of stationary condition, check the indoor unit air treatment. Test parts for the indoor unit Installation 4 Press the (Air swing) button to check whether the airflow blades work properly. 5 Press the (Power) button to stop the trial operation. Pumping down refrigerant Pump-down is an operation intended to collect all the system refrigerant in the outdoor unit. This operation must be carried out before disconnecting the refrigerant tubing in order to avoid refrigerant loss to the atmosphere. 46 English 1 Shut off the liquid valve with the Allen wrench. 2 Turn on the air conditioner in cooling with fan operating at high velocity. (Compressor will immediately start, provided 3 minutes have elapsed since the last stop.) 1 3 After 2 minutes of operation, shut the suction valve with the same wrench. 1 minute 4 Turn off the air conditioner and switch mains supply off. 5 Disconnect tubing. After disconnection, protect valves and tubing ends from dust. Liquid service port <High pressure> Gas service port <Low pressure> CAUTION • Compressor damage may occur if the compressor is run at a negative suction pressure. 2 Pumping down for removing the product 1 Hold down the (Power) button on the indoor unit for 5 seconds. Beep sounds immediately to indicate that the product is ready for pump down procedure. Off 2 Let the compressor run for more than 5 minutes. 3 Release the valve caps on High and Low pressure side. 4 Use L-wrench to close the valve on the high pressure side. 5 After approximately 1 minute, close the valve on the low pressure side. 6 Stop operation of the air conditioner by pressing the (Power) button on the indoor unit or remote control. 7 Disconnect the pipes.
