WARNING

For installation purposes, be sure to use the parts supplied by the manufacturer or other prescribed parts.

Using non-speci fi ed parts will cause serious accidents such as falling unit, refrigerant leakage, water leakage, electric shock, and fi re.

To install a unit that uses the R410A refrigerant, use dedicated tools and piping materials that have been manufactured speci fi cally for R410A use.

Because the pressure of the R410A refrigerant is approximately 1.6 times higher than the R22, failure to use dedicated piping material or improper installation can cause rupture or injury.

It will also cause serious accidents such as refrigerant leakage, water leakage, electric shock, and fi re.

Do not introduce any substance other than the prescribed refrigerant into the refrigeration cycle.

If air enters the refrigeration cycle, the pressure in the refrigeration cycle will become abnormally high and cause the piping to rupture.

Be sure to install the unit as prescribed, so that it can withstand earthquakes and typhoons or other strong winds.

Improper installation can cause the unit to topple or fall, or other accidents.

Ensure that the outdoor unit is securely installed at a place that can withstand the weight of the unit.

Improper installation will cause injuries caused by falling unit.

If there is a refrigerant leakage, make sure that it does not exceed the concentration limit.

If a refrigerant leakage exceeds the concentration limit, it can lead to accidents such as oxygen starvation.

If a refrigerant leakage occurs during operation, immediately vacate the premises and thoroughly ventilate the area.

If the refrigerant is exposed to fi re, it will create a hazardous gas.

Electrical work must be performed in accordance with this Installation manual by a person certi fi ed under the national or regional regulations. Be sure to use a dedicated circuit for the unit.

An insuf fi cient power supply circuit or improperly performed electrical work can cause serious accidents such as electric shock or fi re.

For wiring, use the prescribed type of cables, connect them securely, making sure that there are no external forces of the cables applied to the terminal connections.

Improperly connected or secured cables can cause serious accidents such as overheating the terminals, electric shock, or fi re.

Do not turn ON the power until all work has been completed.

Turning ON the power before the work is completed can cause serious accidents such as electric shock or fi re.

After the installation, make sure there is no refrigerant leakage.

If the refrigerant leaks into the room and becomes exposed to a source of fi re such as a fan heater, stove, or burner, it will create a hazardous gas.

Use a wall hole pipe. Otherwise, it may cause a short circuit.

Do not place the outdoor unit near the handrail of the balcony.

Children may climb onto the outdoor unit, lean over the handrail and fall over.

Use only a speci fi ed power cable. Poor connection, poor insulation, and exceeding the allowable current will lead to electric shock and fi re.

Attach the connecting cables securely to the terminal. Or secure it fi rmly with a "wiring suppressor".

Loose connection will lead to malfunction, electric shock, and fi re.

Install a breaker to cut off all AC main current at the same time.

If you do not install a breaker, it may cause electric shock and fi re.

During installation, make sure that the refrigerant pipe is attached fi rmly before you run the compressor.

Do not operate the compressor under the condition of refrigerant piping not attached properly with 2-way or 3-way valve open. This may cause abnormal pressure in the refrigeration cycle that leads to rupture and even injury.

During the pump-down operation, make sure that the compressor is turned off before you remove the refrigerant piping. Do not remove the connection pipe while the compressor is in operation with 2-way or 3-way valve open. This may cause abnormal pressure in the refrigeration cycle that leads to breakage and even injury.

If there is a possibility of touching the fan during maintenance, make sure to turn

OFF the power before implementing the maintenance. Even if operations are suspended, the fan of outdoor unit sometimes rotates, so if the fan rotates suddenly while in contact with you may cause serious injury.

Installation must be performed in accordance with the requirement of NEC (National

Electrical Code) and CEC (Canadian Electrical Code) by authorized personnel only.

2. ABOUT THIS PRODUCT

2. 1. Precautions for using the R410A refrigerant

Pay careful attention to the following points :

Since the working pressure is 1.6 times higher than that of R22 models, some of the piping and installation and service tools are special. (See the table in the SPECIAL

TOOLS FOR R410A section.)

Especially, when replacing a conventional refrigerant (other than R410A) model with a new refrigerant R410A model, always replace the conventional piping and fl are nuts with the R410A piping and fl are nuts.

Models that use refrigerant R410A have a different charging port thread diameter to prevent erroneous charging with R22, R407C and for safety. Therefore, check beforehand. [The charging port thread diameter for R410A is 1/2 UNF 20 threads per inch.]

Be more careful than the installation of the refrigerant (other than R410A) models, not to enter foreign matters (oil, water, etc.) and other refrigerant into the piping.

Also, when storing the piping, securely seal the openings by pinching, taping, etc.

When charging the refrigerant, take into account the slight change in the composition of the gas and liquid phases, and always charge from the liquid phase side whose composition is stable.

Contents of change for R22 tool

Pressure is huge and cannot be measured with a conventional (R22) gauge. To prevent erroneous mixing of other refrigerants, the diameter of each port has been changed.

It is recommended to use a gauge manifold with a high pressure display range 500 microns to 768 psi (-0.1 to 5.3

MPa) and a low pressure display range 500 microns to 551 psi (-0.1 to 3.8 MPa).

To increase pressure resistance, the hose material and base size were changed.

A conventional (R22) vacuum pump can be used by installing a vacuum pump adapter.

vacuum pump adapter.

• Be sure that the pump oil does not back fl ow into the system. Use one capable for vacuum suction of 500 microns (-100.7kPa).

5. 1. Brazing

CAUTION

If air or different type of refrigerant enters the refrigeration cycle, the internal pressure in the refrigeration cycle will become abnormally high and prevent the unit from exerting its full performance.

Apply nitrogen gas while brazing the pipes.

Nitrogen gas pressure: 2.9 psi (0.02 MPa)

(= suf fi cient pressure to be felt on the back of your hand or more)

Fig.

Pressure regulating valve

Cap

Nitrogen gas

Brazing area

If a pipe is brazed without applying nitrogen gas, it will create an oxidation fi lm.

This can degrade performance or damage the parts in the unit (such as the compressor or valves).

Do not use fl ux to braze pipes. If the fl ux is the chlorine type, it will cause the pipes to corrode.

In addition, if the fl ux contains fl uoride, it will affect the refrigerant piping system due to deterioration of refrigerant oil.

For brazing material, use phosphor copper that does not require fl ux.

6. ELECTRICAL WIRING

6. 1. The precautions of electrical wiring

WARNING

Wiring connections must be performed by a quali fi ed person in accordance with speci fi cations.

The rated supply of this product is 60Hz, 460 V of 3-phase, 3-wire. Use a voltage within the range of 414 to 506 V.

Make sure to perform earthing (grounding) work. Improper earthing (grounding) work can cause electric shocks.

Before connecting the cables, make sure the power supply is OFF.

We suggest installing GFEB breakers or follow local electrical code. When installing this system, install using ground fault equipment breakers (GFEB) to reduce the risk of leaking current which may result in electric shock or potential fi re.

WARNING

Be sure to install a breaker of the speci fi ed capacity. When selecting breaker, please comply with the laws and the regulations of each country. One breaker must be installed on the power supply of the outdoor unit. Wrong selection and setup of the breaker will cause electric shock or fi re.

Do not connect AC power supply to the transmission line terminal board.

Improper wiring can damage the entire system.

Connect the connector cord securely to the terminal.

Faulty installation can cause a fi re.

Do not modify power cable, use extension cable or branch wiring. Improper use may cause electric shock or fi re by poor connection, insuf fi cient insulation or over current.

Make sure to secure the insulation portion of the connector cable with the cord clamp. A damaged insulation can cause a short circuit.

CAUTION - Risk of Electric Shock

Never install a power factor improvement condenser. Instead of improving the power factor, the condenser may overheat.

Before servicing the unit, turn the power supply switch OFF. Then, do not touch electric parts for 10 minutes due to the risk of electric shock.

Always use a separate power supply line protected by a circuit breaker operating on all cables with a distance between contact of 1/8 in (3 mm) for this unit.

Use ring terminals and tighten the terminal screws to the speci fi ed torques, otherwise, abnormal overheating may be occurred and possibly cause serious damage inside the unit.

Securely install the electrical box cover on the unit. An improperly installed service panel can cause serious accidents such as electric shock or fi re through exposure to dust or water.

If the supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly quali fi ed persons in order to avoid a hazard.

CAUTION

The primary power supply capacity is for the air conditioner itself, and does not include the concurrent use of other devices.

Connect the power cables in positive phase sequence. If there is a missing phase connection, the unit will not operate normally.

Do not use crossover power supply wiring for the outdoor unit.

If the electrical power is inadequate, contact your electric power company.

Install a breaker in a location that is not exposed to high temperatures.

If the temperature surrounding the breaker is too high, the amperage at which the breaker cuts out may decrease.

This system uses an inverter, which means that when used with a ground fault breaker you must use breakers that can handle harmonics such as a (GFEB) Ground

Fault Equipment Breaker (100 mA or greater) in order to prevent malfunctioning of ground fault device.

When the electrical switchboard is installed outdoors, place it under lock and key so that it is not easily accessible.

Never bundle the power supply cable and transmission cable, remote control cable together. Separate these cable by 2 in (50 mm) or more. Bundling these cables together will cause miss operation or breakdown.

Always keep to the maximum length of the transmission cable. Exceeding the maximum length may lead to erroneous operation.

The static electricity that is charged to the human body can damage the control PC board when handling the control PC board for address setting, etc.

Please keep caution to the following points.

Provide the earthing (grounding) of Indoor unit, Outdoor unit and Option equipment.

Cut off the power supply (breaker).

Touch the metal section (such as the unpainted control box section) of the indoor or outdoor unit for more than 10 seconds. Discharge the static electricity in your body.

Never touch the component terminal or pattern on the PC board.

The operations of each input terminal and the selection of function are set with the push button on the PC board of outdoor unit. About the setting, please refer to “7.4.

Push button setting”.

NOTE:

*1: Batch stop or Emergency stop pattern can be selected by outdoor unit PC board push button.

*2: The emergency stop function mounted in the equipment does not guarantee the regulations of each country. For this reason, suf fi cient checking is necessary regarding use.

Especially, since the fact that the equipment may not be emergency-stopped in the case of breaking of the wiring to the external input terminals and communication line, communication error due to noise, VRF external input circuit trouble, etc. must be considered, the provision of double measures that add direct interruption of the power supply by switch, etc. is recommended as a precaution.

*3: Pulse input to CN135 must be width 50ms or more, and must be interval 50ms or more.

8. 1. Sealing test

CAUTION

• Use only nitrogen gas.

Never use refrigerant gas, oxygen, in fl ammable gas or poisonous gas to pressurize the system. (If oxygen is used. There is danger of an explosion.)

• Do not shock during sealing test.

It can rupture the pipes and cause serious injury.

• Do not turn on the power unless all operations are complete.

• Do not block the walls and the ceiling until the sealing test and charging of the refrigerant gas have been completed.

After connecting the pipes, perform a sealing test.

Recheck that the spindle of the 3-way valve are closed before performing a sealing test. (Fig. B)

Pour nitrogen gas through both the liquid pipe and the gas pipe.

Pressurize nitrogen gas to 609 psi (4.2 MPa) to perform the sealing test.

Check all fl are connection areas and brazed areas.

Then, check that the pressure has not decreased.

Compare the pressures after pressurizing and letting it stand for 24 hours, and check that the pressure did not decreased.

* When the outdoor temperature changes 9 degrees F (5 degrees C), the test pressure changes 7.25 psi (0.05 MPa).

If the pressure has dropped, the pipe joints may be leaking.

If a leakage is found, immediately repair it and perform a sealing test again.

* Decrease the pressure of nitrogen gas before brazing

After completing the sealing test, release the nitrogen gas from both valves.

Release the nitrogen gas slowly.

8. 2. Vacuum process

CAUTION

Do not turn on the power unless all operations are complete.

If the system is not evacuated properly, its performance will drop.

• If moisture enter the piping, follow below. (i.e., if doing work during the rainy season, if the actual work takes long enough that condensation may form on the inside of the pipes, if rain might enter the pipes during work, etc.) vacuum breakdown) with nitrogen gas, then depressurize down to 500 microns

(-100.7kPa) for an hour using the vacuum pump (vacuum process).

• If the pressure does not reach 500 microns (-100.7kPa) even after depressurizing for at least 2 hours, repeat the vacuum breakdown - vacuum process.

After vacuum process, maintain the vacuum for an hour and make sure the pressure does not rise by monitoring with a vacuum gauge.

Evacuation procedure

1) Remove the caps of the gas pipe and liquid pipe and check that the valves are closed.

2) Remove the charging cap.

3) Connect a vacuum pump and a pressure gauge to a charging hose and connect it to the charging port.

4) Activate the vacuum pump and vacuum the indoor unit and connection piping until the pressure gauge becomes 500 microns (-100.7kPa).

Evacuate from both the gas pipe and the liquid pipe.

5) Continue evacuating the system for 1 hour after the pressure gauge reads

500 microns (-100.7kPa).

6) Remove the charging hose and reinstall the charging cap.

En-23

8. 3. Additional charging

CAUTION

Do not turn on the power unless all operations are complete.

After evacuating the system, add refrigerant.

Do not charge the system with a refrigerant other than R410A.

Always keep to the limit on the total amount of refrigerant. Exceeding the limit on the total amount of refrigerant will lead to malfunction during charging of refrigerant.

Do not reuse recovered refrigerant.

Use an electronic scale to measure the charging amount of refrigerant.

Adding more refrigerant than the speci fi ed amount will cause a malfunction.

Charge refrigerant using the liquid pipe.

Adding refrigerant through the gas pipe will cause a malfunction.

Add refrigerant by charging the system with the refrigerant in the liquid state. If the refrigerant cylinder is equipped with a siphon, it is not necessary to place the cylinder upright.

8. 3. 1. Procedure for charging the system with refrigerant

1) Remove the charging cap from the liquid pipe. Use standard refrigeration practices when charging refrigerant.

2) Attach a charging hose to the refrigerant cylinder, and connect it to the charging port.

3) Add refrigerant by calculating the additional refrigerant volume in accordance with the calculation formula indicated below.

4) Remove the charging cap and install the charging hose.

5) Remove the body caps (suction gas pipe, discharge gas pipe and liquid pipe), and open the valves.

6) Close the body caps.

7) After adding refrigerant, indicate the added charging volume on the unit.

* Tighten the body caps and charging caps to the torque values speci

fi

ed in the

Table A.

To open and close the valves, Use an M4 hexagon wrench for liquid pipe.

* *

If you can not charge the speci

fi

ed amount of refrigerant with the above method, be sure to charge the refrigerant through the gas pipe while operating in cooling mode. In order to prevent liquid back-

fl

ow, carefully operate the refrigerant cylinder valve so that the refrigerant will

fl

ow in certain part at a time.

8. 3. 2. Checking total amount of refrigerant and calculating the amount of refrigerant charge to be added

• The amount of refrigerant charge to be added is the total value of the basic refrigerant charge amount and the value calculated from the length of the liquid pipe.

• Round up the value to 2 decimal places.

NOTE: Check the total refrigerant amount under the following conditions

Condition

For 1 outdoor unit per refrigerant system

: Total amount of refrigerant 77.16 lb (35.00 kg)

For 2 outdoor units per refrigerant system

: Total amount of refrigerant ≤ 154.32 lb (70.00 kg)

For 3 outdoor units per refrigerant system

: Total amount of refrigerant ≤ 231.49 lb (105.00 kg)

Computational formula

E ≤ 77.16 lb (35.00 kg)

E ≤ 154.32 lb (70.00 kg)

E ≤ 231.49 lb (105.00 kg)

<Calculation>

• When there are 3 outdoor units (AOUA96TLCV, AOUA96TLCV, AOUA72TLCV) connected to 1 system

(1) Calculation of additional amount for outdoor unit

A = 6.61 lb + 6.61 lb + 6.61 lb = 19.83 lb

(A = 3.00 (kg) + 3.00 (kg) + 3.00 (kg) = 9.00 (kg))

(2) Calculation of additional amount for pipe length

If liquid pipe piping length is the following

Ø3/4 in : 164 ft, Ø5/8 in : 82 ft, Ø1/2 in : 0 ft, Ø3/8 in : 65 ft, Ø1/4 in : 49 ft

(Ø19.05 mm : 50 m, Ø15.88 mm : 25 m, Ø12.70 mm : 0 m, Ø9.52 mm : 20 m, Ø6.53 mm : 15 m)

Additional charge volume

B = 164 ft × 0.180 lb/ft + 82 ft × 0.120 lb/ft + 0 ft × 0.077 lb/ft

+ 65 ft × 0.039 lb/ft + 49 ft × 0.014 lb/ft

= 42.581 lb

(B = 50 m × 0.268 kg/m + 25 m × 0.178 kg/m + 0 m × 0.114 kg/m

+ 20 m × 0.058 kg/m + 15 m × 0.021 kg/m

= 19.325 kg)

C = A + B = 19.83 lb + 42.581 lb = 62.411 lb → 62.41 lb

(C = A + B = 9.00 kg + 19.325 kg = 28.325 kg → 28.33 kg)

D = 26.01 lb + 26.01 lb + 26.01 lb = 78.03 lb

(D = 11.80 kg + 11.80 kg + 11.80 kg = 35.40 kg)

(5) Check the total amount of refrigerant

When 3 outdoor units are connected to 1 system, the following condition must be satis fi ed.

Condition: E = C + D ≤ 231.49 lb (105.00 kg)

Calculation: 62.41 lb + 78.03 lb = 140.44 < 231.49 lb

(28.33 kg + 35.40 kg = 63.73 kg < 105.00 kg)

No problem if the above condition is satis fi ed.
