FEATURES / BENEFITS
AN INEXPENSIVE AND CREATIVE
SOLUTION TO DESIGN PROBLEMS.
The 38GVM/40GVM ductless inverter driven multi--split system
provides individual comfort control for up to 5 separate zones.
Two, three, four or five space--saving High Wall ductless fan coils
are matched with one outdoor heat pump. The indoor fan coils are
connected to the outdoor unit by refrigerant tubing and wires.
The fan coils are mounted on the wall, near the ceiling. This
selection of fan coils permits inexpensive and creative solutions to
design problems such as:
40GVM
38GVM
A12567
S
When adding air conditioning to spaces that are heated
by hydronic or electric heat and have no ductwork.
S
Historical renovations or any application where
preserving the look of the original structure is essential.
S
Commercial add--on jobs where the existing air
conditioning system cannot be stretched.
These compact indoor fan coil units take up very little space in the
room and do not obstruct windows. The fan coils are attractively
styled to blend with most room decors.
Advanced system components incorporate innovative technology
to provide reliable cooling and heating performance at low sound
levels.
38/40GVM
INVERTER TECHNOLOGY - COMFORT
FAST INSTALLATION
The inverter driven compressor is designed to run at various input
power frequencies (Hz) which controls the motor speed of the
compressor.
Even Temperature – The control package, including the inverter,
monitors outdoor and indoor temperatures as they relate to the
selected indoor set point and adjusts the speed of the compressor to
match the load and keep the system operating continuously rather
than cycling and creating temperature swings. This translates to
higher comfort levels for the occupants.
Rapid Pull Down/Warm--Up – Comfort is increased by the
ability to the inverter system to ramp up the compressor speed
enabling the system to reach the user selected room temperature set
point quicker.
Humidity Control – Running the system for longer periods and
continuously varying the compressor speed will enhance the
humidity control.
This compact ductless split system is simple to install. A mounting
bracket is included with the indoor units and only wires and piping
need to be run between the indoor and outdoor units. These units
are fast and easy to install ensuring minimal disruption to
customers in homes or workplace. This makes the 38/40GVM
systems the equipment of choice for retrofit applications.
INDIVIDUAL ROOM COMFORT
Maximum comfort is provided because each space can be
controlled individually based on the usage pattern. The air sweep
feature provided permits optimal room mixing to eliminate hot and
cold spots for the occupant comfort.
LOW SOUND LEVELS
When noise is a concern, ductless split systems are the answer. The
indoor units are whisper quiet. There are no compressors indoors,
either in the conditioned space or directly over it, and there is none
of the noise usually generated by air being forced through
ductwork.
When sound ordinances and proximity to neighbors demand quiet
operation, the 38GVM unit is the right choice. With the inverter
technology, these units run at lower speeds most of the time
resulting in reduced sound levels.
INVERTER TECHNOLOGY – ENHANCED
ECONOMICAL OPERATION
Ductless systems are inherently economical to operate. Individual
rooms are heated or cooled only when required, and since the air is
delivered directly to the space, there is no need to use additional
energy to move the air in the ductwork. This economical operation
is enhanced further when the inverter system output matches the
load resulting in a more efficient system.
EASY--TO--USE CONTROLS
SIMPLE SERVICING AND
MAINTENANCE
Removing the top panel of the outdoor unit provides immediate
access to the control compartment, providing the service technician
access to the diagnostic LEDs to facilitate the troubleshooting
process. In addition, the draw--thru design of the outdoor unit
means that dirt accumulates on the outside surface of the coil. Coils
can be cleaned quickly from the inside using a pressure hose and
detergent.
On the indoor units, service and maintenance expense is reduced
due to the permanent easy to clean filters. Also, error codes are
displayed on the front panel to alert the user to certain system
malfunctions
BUILT--IN RELIABILITY
Ductless split system indoor and outdoor units are designed to
provide years of trouble--free operation.
Both the indoor and outdoor units are well protected. Whenever
the microprocessor detects abnormal conditions, the unit will stop
and an error code is displayed.
Inverter systems provide additional reliability due to soft start. This
refers to the ability of the inverter to start the compressor motor
using reduced voltage and reduced current. This feature is
beneficial from an electrical standpoint (eliminates current spikes)
as well as an overall reliability standpoint due to reduced stress on
all associated system components.
ACCESSORIES
A condensate pump accessory is available to provide installation
flexibility for those applications where gravity cannot be used to
dispose of the condensate.
AGENCY LISTINGS
All systems are listed with AHRI (Air conditioning, Heating, and
Refrigeration Institute) and are ETL certified per UL 1995
standard.
The high--wall systems have microprocessor--based controls to
provide the ultimate in comfort and efficiency. The user friendly
wireless remote control provides the interface between the user and
the unit.
SECURE OPERATION
If security is an issue, outdoor and indoor units are connected only
by refrigerant piping and wiring to prevent intruders from crawling
through ductwork or wall openings. In addition, since the 38GVM
can be installed close to an outside wall, coils are protected from
vandals and severe weather.

APPLICATION DATA
UNIT SELECTION
Outdoor Unit Model
The commercial application will tend to be more steady during the
normal day time hours, and will go to low load levels after normal
business hours. If it is anticipated that the system will be required
to run at the maximum load point for the majority of the time, the
next larger system capacity should be selected.
The tables below are guidelines for selecting the proper size for the
application.

When selecting a variable speed system match the system capacity
range to the anticipated load range. Since a variable speed system
can accommodate a wide range of loads it is important to
understand the percentage of time that the system will be required
to run at the both the maximum and the minimum load points. This
differential is most evident when a residential application is
compared with a commercial application.
Generally there will be more load diversification in the residential
application (shifting from low load to high load).

weight of all fan coils. Refer to the Physical Data section for
weights, and the base unit dimensional drawings.
Unit Leveling – For reliable operation, units should be level in all
planes.
Clearances – Minimum clearance as shown in Fig. 7.
Unit location – Select a location which will provide the best air
circulation for the room. These units should be positioned as high
as possible on the wall for the best air circulation. The unit return
and discharge should not be obstructed by furniture, curtains, or
anything which may cause the unit to short cycle or air to recycle.
Place the unit in the middle of the selected wall (if possible). Use
an outside wall, if available, to make piping easier, and place the
unit so it faces the normal location of room occupants.
The outdoor unit has multiple electronic expansion valves to
manage the refrigerant flow to the different indoor fan coils
connected to that unit.
Support – A location which can bear the weight of outdoor unit.
Refer to the Physical Data section for weights, and base
dimensional drawings.
Unit Leveling – For reliable operation, units should be level in all
planes.
Clearances – Minimum clearances, as shown in Fig. 8 and 9, must
be provided for airflow. The outdoor units are designed for
free--blow applications. Air inlets and outlets should not be
restricted.
Unit location – A location which is convenient to installation and
not exposed to strong wind.
Routing – Refrigerant lines can be routed in any of the four
directions shown in Fig. 10.

General Guidelines:
1. The 38GVM units are shipped with full charge of R--410A
refrigerant. All charges, line sizing, and capacities are based
on runs of 25 ft (7.6 m). For runs over these limits, consult
the Installation Instructions for charge adjustments.
2. Refrigerant lines should not be buried in the ground. If it is
necessary to bury the lines, not more than 36 inches (914
mm) should be buried. Provide a minimum of 6 inch (152
mm) vertical rise to service valves to prevent refrigerant
migration.
3. Both lines must be insulated. Use a minimum of ½--inch
(12.7 mm) thick insulation. Closed--cell insulation is
recommended in all long--line applications.
4. Special consideration should be given to isolating
interconnecting tubing from the building structure. Isolate
the tubing so that vibration or noise is not transmitted into
the structure.
Long Line Applications:
1. No change in line sizing is required.
2. Additional charge is required for line lengths above those
mentioned in the General Guidelines section. Refer to the
Installation Instructions for further detail.

WIRING
The main power is supplied to the outdoor unit. Four field supplied
connecting cables from the outdoor unit to each of the indoor units
are: L1, L2, Ground, and S for communication between the
outdoor unit and each indoor unit.
CONTROL SYSTEM
The 38/40GVM unit is equipped with a microprocessor control to
operate the system and give optimum levels of comfort and
operating efficiency.
There are microprocessor boards and thermistors located in both
the indoor and outdoor units. The thermistors monitor the system
operation and control the operating mode. The change in the
settings or the modes of operation, use the factory supplied
wireless remote control.
The 38/40GVM unit has the following operating modes:
S Fan Only
S Auto
S Heating (on Heat Pumps only)
S Cooling
S Dehumidification (Dry)
FAN ONLY -- In Fan Only mode, the system filters and circulates
the room air without changing the room air temperature.
AUTO -- In Auto mode, the system will automatically select one of
the following operating modes: cooling, heating or fan only based
on the difference between the room temperature and the set point
temperature.
HEATING -- In the Heating mode, the system heats and filters
room air.
COOLING -- When in Cooling mode, the fan runs all the time and
the system cools, dries and filters room air.
SEQUENCE OF OPERATION
Simultaneous heating and cooling is not allowed. At start--up, the
first indoor unit to call for operation (heating or cooling) will
control from the preset position, the mode of operation for the rest
of the indoor units connected to the same outdoor unit. If the other
units conflict in mode with the first unit an error message will be
displayed on those units.
When a unit is set to COOL, HEAT or DRY mode, the electronic
expansion valve is first initialized (closed) and then is opened to a
preset position.
Superheat heat for each fan coil (the ones that are energized) is
monitored and the position of the electronic expansion valve is
adjusted to ensure that each fan coil gets the appropriate amount of
refrigerant to maintain the required superheat. After the set point is
satisfied and the fan coil shuts off, the electronic expansion valve
stays open for a specified time to ensure that system pressures
equalize.
When the system is set for COOL, HEAT or DRY mode, the
compressor speed is varied by comparing the indoor air
temperature with the set point and continuously adjusting the
compressor speed (to keep the compressor running as long as
possible) in an effort to maintain the greatest comfort possible.
The indoor fan can be running in MANUAL or AUTO mode.
When the fan is running in AUTO mode, the speed is determined
by comparing the room temperature to the set point.
In COOLING mode, when the set point is satisfied, the fan will
continue running. In HEATING mode, when the set point is
satisfied, the fan speed will be reduced and then will run
continuously until the coil temperature drops to a point cold air is
blown on the occupants in the space, at which time the indoor fan
is de--energized.
When the unit goes through the defrost cycle, the indoor fans are
de--energized and the refrigerant is circulated through all the fan
coils (even if they were off or on standby before the defrost cycle)
to maximize the heat transfer surface area available for defrost
operation.
