Form 48SS-4PD
Energy-saving, direct-spark ignition saves gas by operating only
when the room thermostat calls for
heating. Standard units are furnished
with natural gas controls. A lowcost, field-installed kit for propane
conversion is available for all units.
Monoport inshot burners produce
precise air-to-gas mixture which
provides for clean and efficient combustion. The large monoport on
the inshot (or injection type) burners
seldom, if ever, needs cleaning. All
gas furnace components are accessible
in one compartment.
The 48SS units meet California
Air Quality Management NOx
requirement of 40 nanograms/
joule or less when NOx kit
no. CRLOWNOX001A00 is
installed.
Durable, dependable
components
Top quality, top reliability components are designed and tested for a
minimum of 15 years of operation
under the harshest conditions. Every
48SS unit is thoroughly run-tested
at the factory in each operating mode,
and is evacuated prior to final
charging.
Compressors are designed for high
efficiency. Each compressor is hermetically sealed against contamination
to help promote longer life and dependable operation. Each compressor
also has vibration isolation to provide quiet operation. All compressors
have internal high-pressure and
overcurrent protection. Rotary compressors are standard on unit
size 018. Reciprocating compressors
are standard on unit sizes 024-042.
Scroll compressors are standard on
unit sizes 048 and 060.
Dimpled heat exchangers optimize
heat transfer for improved efficiency.
The tubular design permits hot gases
to stay in close contact with the cell
walls to maximize heat transfer and
efficiency.
The induced draft combustion
system eliminates the unsightly appearance of flue stacks, and diminishes
the effects of wind on heating operation. The induced draft also prevents contaminants from entering the
supply air if a leak in the heat exchanger occurs.

Direct-drive multispeed, PSC
(permanent split capacitor)
blower motor is standard on all
models.
Direct-drive, PSC condenser-fan
motor is designed to help reduce
energy consumption and provide for
cooling operation down to 40 F
outdoor temperature.
Refrigerant system is designed to
provide dependability. Liquid refrigerant strainers are used to promote
clean, unrestricted operation. Each
unit leaves the factory with a full refrigerant charge. Refrigerant service
connections make checking operating
pressures easier.
Color-coded wires permit easy tracing and diagnostics.
Evaporator and condenser coils
are computer-designed for optimum
heat transfer and cooling efficiency.
Condenser coil is fabricated of copper
tube and aluminum fins and is located inside the unit for protection
against damage for long life and reliable operation. The condenser coil
is internally mounted and protected by
a composite grille. Copper fin coils
are also available from the factory by
special order. These coils are recommended in applications where aluminum fins are likely to be damaged
due to corrosion and are ideal for seacoast applications.
Low sound ratings ensure a quiet
indoor and outdoor environment with
sound ratings as low as 7.4 bels.
Easy to service cabinets provide
easy accessibility to serviceable components during maintenance and
installation. Rounded corners are an
important safety feature, and a high
quality finish ensures an attractive
appearance.
Optional base rails provide holes
for rigging and forklifts as well as
an elevated mounting frame that provides structural support for horizontal installations. Ideal for light
commercial applications.
Downflow option unit is converted
for downflow at the factory to allow vertical ductwork connections.
Unit is equipped with base rail.
Low and high voltage electrical
entries allow low and high voltage to
be brought in through either the
front duct panel or rear flue panel.
Integrated gas unit controller
(IGC) contains all the ignition components and is easily accessible for service. The IGC provides built-in
diagnostic capabilities. A light-emitting
diode (LED) simplifies troubleshooting by providing visual fault notification and system status information.
The IGC board provides exclusive
anti-cycle protection for gas heat
operation. The IGC also contains
burner control logic for dependable
heating operation. The 48SS units
maximize heating efficiency through
the IGC’s control of evaporator fan
ON/OFF delays. The IGC helps make
48SS units reliable for years.
Weatherized cabinets are constructed of heavy-duty, phosphated,
zinc-coated prepainted steel capable
of withstanding 500 hours (Federal
Test Method Standard No. 141,
Method 6061) in salt spray. Interior
surfaces of the evaporator/heat
exchanger compartment are insulated
with cleanable, foil-faced insulation
for improved indoor-air quality. Unit
conforms to American Society of
Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers [ASHRAE]
No. 62, with use of a sloped condensate pan. An external drain trap is
required.
The standard control system is
readily adaptable to all conventional
and programmable thermostats. In
addition, units are suitable for integration into monitor control systems if
required.
Standardized components for the
complete 48SS line of products are
found in all safety devices, condenserfan motors, evaporator-fan motors,
and control boards, while the gas sections use common inducer motors,
limit switches, and rollout switches.
This allows for greater inventory control, familiarity of parts, and fewer
stocked parts.

Field-installed accessories
Factory-assembled roof curbs are designed for use on
downflow discharge applications. Heavy gage, galvanized
steel construction provides one-piece support. The curb complies with the standards of the NRCA (National Roofing
Contractors Association). A wood nailing strip is provided
for attaching the roofing to the curb.
25% Open manual outdoor-air damper provides for
minimum outdoor air and is manually adjustable.
Thermostat and subbase provide heating and cooling
unit control. The subbase provides system and fan switching at the thermostat location.
Carrier electronic programmable thermostats provide 2-stage heating and 2-stage cooling control with remote communication ability.
Low-ambient kit (Motormastert II device) allows the
use of mechanical cooling down to outdoor ambient temperatures as low as 0° F.
LP conversion kit allows for conversion from natural gas
to liquid propane. Conversion kit involves changing the gas
orifices and adding ceramic baffles to accommodate liquid
propane.
Solid-state Time Guardt II device protects compressor
by preventing short cycling.
Crankcase heater warms crankcase oil to reduce refrigerant migration and ensure proper compressor lubrication.
(Recommended on 208/230-v single-phase units in sizes
024-042 only).
High- and low-pressure switches provide additional
safety features and protect the unit from running at unsuitable pressures.
Filter rack features easy installation, serviceability, and high
filtering performance for vertical applications.
Lifting bracket kit provides attachment points for rigging
straps. The kit is not required when unit is equipped with
an optional base rail or downflow application.
High altitude kit is for use at 2001 to 5000 feet above
sea level. Kit consists of natural gas orifices that compensate for gas heat operation at high altitude.
Low NOx kit provides compliance with low NOx emissions
requirements for units being installed in California Air Quality Management Districts, which require NOx emissions of
40 nanograms/joule or less.

Enter Cooling Capacities table at condenser entering
temperature of 95 F. Unit 48SS036 at 1200 cfm and
67 F ewb (entering wet bulb) will provide a total capacity of 36,000 Btuh and an SHC of 26,200 Btuh.
Calculate SHC correction, if required, using Note 4
under Cooling Capacities tables.
III Select heating capacity of unit to provide design
condition requirement.
In the Heating Capacities and Efficiencies table on
page 5, note that unit 48SS036080 will provide
64,800 Btuh with an input of 80,000 Btuh.
IV Determine fan speed and power requirements
at design conditions.
Before entering the air delivery tables, calculate the
total static pressure required. From the given, the Wet
Coil Pressure Drop table, and the Filter Pressure Drop
table on page 18, find at 1200 cfm:
External static pressure
0.20 in. wg
Wet coil
0.088 in. wg
Filter
0.13 in. wg
Total static pressure
0.42 in. wg (rounded)
Enter the table for Dry Coil Air Delivery — Horizontal
Discharge for 230 and 460 V on page 16. For 208 v
operation, deduct 10% from value given. The fan will
deliver 1233 cfm at 0.4 external static pressure (1370
x 0.9) at high speed and 852 cfm at 0.5 external static
pressure (946 x 0.9) at low speed. The fan speed should
be set at high to satisfy job requirements.
V Select unit that corresponds to power source
available.
The Electrical Data table on page 24 shows that the
unit is designed to operate at 208-1-60.

Application data
Condensate trap — A 2-in. condensate trap must be field
supplied.
Ductwork — Secure downflow discharge ductwork to roof
curb. For horizontal discharge applications, attach ductwork to unit with flanges.
To convert a unit to downflow discharge or horizontal discharge — Units are equipped with factory-installed
duct covers on both the downflow and horizontal openings.
Remove appropriate duct panel covers for intended discharge application. Units with downflow option do not require duct panel cover removal.
20
Airflow — Units are draw-thru on cooling and blow-thru
on heating.
Maximum cooling airflow — To minimize the possibility
of condensate blow-off from evaporator, airflow through units
should not exceed 450 cfm/ton.
Minimum cooling airflow is 350 cfm/ton.
Minimum ambient operating temperature in cooling
for all standard units is 40 F. With accessory low ambient
temperature kit, units can operate at temperatures down to
0° F.

EXAMPLE: Supply voltage is 460-3-60.

BC = 464 v
AC = 455 v
452 + 464 + 455
Average Voltage =
3
1371
=

= 457
Determine maximum deviation from average voltage.
(AB) 457 – 452 = 5 v
(BC) 464 – 457 = 7 v
(AC) 457 – 455 = 2 v
Maximum deviation is 7 v.
Determine percent of voltage imbalance.
7
% Voltage Imbalance = 100 x
457
= 1.53%
This amount of phase imbalance is satisfactory as it is below the
maximum allowable 2%.
IMPORTANT: If the supply voltage phase imbalance is more than
2%, contact your local electric utility company immediately.
Controls
Sequence of operation
Heating — On a call for heating, terminal ‘‘W’’ of the thermostat is energized, starting the induced-draft motor. When
the hall-effect sensor on the induced-draft motor senses that
it has reached the required speed, the burner sequence begins. This function is performed by the integrated control
board (IGC). The indoor-fan motor is energized 45 seconds
after flame is established. When the thermostat is satisfied
and ‘‘W’’ is deenergized, the indoor-fan motor stops after a
45-second time-off delay.
Cooling — With the room thermostat SYSTEM switch in
the COOL position and the FAN switch in the AUTO. position, the cooling sequence of operation is as follows:
When the room temperature rises to a point that is slightly
above the cooling control setting of the thermostat, the thermostat completes the circuit between thermostat terminal
R to terminals Y and G. These completed circuits through
the thermostat connect contactor coil (C) (through unit wire
Y) and blower relay coil (BR) (through unit wire G) across
the 24-v secondary of transformer (TRAN).
The normally-open contacts of energized contactor (C)
close and complete the circuit through compressor motor
(COMP) and condenser (outdoor) fan motor (OFM). Both
motors start instantly.
The set of normally-open contacts of energized relay BR
close and complete the circuit through evaporator blower
(indoor) fan motor (IFM). The blower motor starts
instantly.
The cooling cycle remains ‘‘on’’ until the room temperature drops to point that is slightly below the cooling
control setting of the room thermostat. At this point, the
thermostat ‘‘breaks’’ the circuit between thermostat terminal R to terminals Y and G. These open circuits deenergize
contactor coil C and relay coil BR. The condenser and compressor motors stop. After a 30-second delay, the blower
motor stops. The unit is in a ‘‘standby’’ condition, waiting
for the next ‘‘call for cooling’’ from the room thermostat.
