IMPORTANT!
Please Read Before Starting
When Installing…
This air conditioning system meets strict safety and operating standards. As the installer or service person, it is an
important part of your job to install or service the system so it
operates safely and efficiently.
…In a Room
Properly insulate any tubing run inside a room to prevent
“sweating” that can cause dripping and water damage to
walls and floors.
For safe installation and trouble-free operation, you must:
● Carefully read this instruction booklet before beginning.
● Follow each installation or repair step exactly as shown.
● Observe all local, state, and national electrical codes.
● This product is intended for professional use.
Permission from the power supplier is required when
installing an outdoor unit that is connected to a 16 A
distribution network.
● Pay close attention to all warning and caution notices
given in this manual.
This symbol refers to a hazard or
unsafe practice which can result
WARNING
in severe personal injury or death.
…In Moist or Uneven Locations
Use a raised concrete pad or concrete blocks to provide a
solid, level foundation for the outdoor unit. This prevents
water damage and abnormal vibration.
CAUTION
…In an area with High Winds
Securely anchor the outdoor unit down with bolts and a
metal frame. Provide a suitable air baffle.
…In a Snowy Area (for Heat Pump-type Systems)
Install the outdoor unit on a raised platform that is higher
than drifting snow. Provide snow vents.
When Connecting Refrigerant Tubing
• Ventilate the room well, in the event that is refrigerant
gas leaks during the installation. Be careful not to allow
contact of the refrigerant gas with a flame as this will
cause the generation of poisonous gas.
This symbol refers to a hazard or
unsafe practice which can result
in personal injury or product or
property damage.
• Keep all tubing runs as short as possible.
If Necessary, Get Help
• Use the flare method for connecting tubing.
These instructions are all you need for most installation
sites and maintenance conditions. If you require help for a
special problem, contact our sales/service outlet or your
certified dealer for additional instructions.
• Apply refrigerant lubricant to the matching surfaces of
the flare and union tubes before connecting them, then
tighten the nut with a torque wrench for a leak-free connection.
In Case of Improper Installation
• Check carefully for leaks before starting the test run.
The manufacturer shall in no way be responsible for
improper installation or maintenance service, including failure to follow the instructions in this document.
NOTE
Depending on the system type, liquid and gas lines may
be either narrow or wide. Therefore, to avoid confusion the
refrigerant tubing for your particular model is speci-fied as
either “narrow” or “wide” than as “liquid” or “gas.”
SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
WARNING

refrigeration system. Escaped refrigerant gas, on contact
with fire or heat, can produce dangerously toxic gas.
When Transporting
• Confirm after installation that no refrigerant gas is leaking. If the gas comes in contact with a burning stove, gas
water heater, electric room heater or other heat source, it
can cause the generation of poisonous gas.
Be careful when picking up and moving the indoor and outdoor
units. Get a partner to help, and bend your knees when lifting
to reduce strain on your back. Sharp edges or thin aluminum
fins on the air conditioner can cut your fingers.

2. The standards for minimum room volume are as
follows.
Check of Density Limit
The room in which the air conditioner is to be
installed requires a design that in the event of
refrigerant gas leaking out, its density will not
exceed a set limit.
The refrigerant (R410A), which is used in the air conditioner, is safe, without the toxicity or combustibility of
ammonia, and is not restricted by laws imposed to protect the ozone layer. However, since it contains more
than air, it poses the risk of suffocation if its density
should rise excessively. Suffocation from leakage of
refrigerant is almost non-existent. With the recent
increase in the number of high density buildings, however, the installation of multi air conditioner systems is
on the increase because of the need for effective use
of floor space, individual control, energy conservation
by curtailing heat and carrying power, etc.
Most importantly, the multi air conditioner system is
able to replenish a large amount of refrigerant compared to conventional individual air conditioners. If a
single unit of the multi air conditioner system is to be
installed in a small room, select a suitable model and
installation procedure so that if the refrigerant accidentally leaks out, its density does not reach the limit
(and in the event of an emergency, measures can be
made before injury can occur).
In a room where the density may exceed the limit,
create an opening with adjacent rooms, or install
mechanical ventilation combined with a gas leak
detection device. The density is as given below.
(1) No partition (shaded portion)
(2) When there is an effective opening with the adjacent room for ventilation of leaking refrigerant gas
(opening without a door, or an opening 0.15% or
larger than the respective floor spaces at the top
or bottom of the door).
Outdoor unit
Refrigerant tubing
Indoor unit
(3) If an indoor unit is installed in each partitioned
room and the refrigerant tubing is interconnected,
the smallest room of course becomes the object.
But when mechanical ventilation is installed interlocked with a gas leakage detector in the smallest
room where the density limit is exceeded, the volume of the next smallest room becomes the object.

Precautions for Installation Using New Refrigerant
1. Care regarding tubing
1-1. Process tubing
●
Material: Use C1220 phosphorous deoxidized copper specified in JIS H3300 “Copper and Copper Alloy Seamless Pipes and Tubes.”
For tubes of φ19.05 or larger, use C1220 T-1/2H material or H material, and do not bend the tubes.
●
Tubing size: Be sure to use the sizes indicated in the table below.
●
Use a tube cutter when cutting the tubing, and be sure to remove any flash. This also applies to distribution
joints (optional).
●
When bending tubing φ15.88 or smaller, use a bending radius that is 4 times the outer diameter of the tubing or larger.
CAUTION
Use sufficient care in handling the tubing. Seal the tubing ends with
caps or tape to prevent dirt, moisture, or other foreign substances
from entering. These substances can result in system malfunction.

1-2. Prevent impurities including water, dust and oxide from entering the tubing. Impurities can cause R410A
refrigerant deterioration and compressor defects. Due to the features of the refrigerant and refrigerating
machine oil, the prevention of water and other impurities becomes more important than ever.
2. Be sure to recharge the refrigerant only in liquid form.
2-1. Since R410A is a non-azeotrope, recharging the refrigerant in gas form can lower performance and cause
defects of the unit.
2-2. Since refrigerant composition changes and performance decreases when gas leaks, collect the remaining
refrigerant and recharge the required total amount of new refrigerant after fixing the leak.
3. Different tools required
3-1. Tool specifications have been changed due to the characteristics of R410A.
Some tools for R22- and R407C-type refrigerant systems cannot be used.

For systems that use R22, apply mineral oil (Suniso oil)
to the flare nuts on the tubing to prevent refrigerant
leakage. For machines that use R407C or R410A, apply
synthetic oil (ether oil) to the flare nuts.
* Using tools for R22 and R407C and new tools for R410A together can cause defects.

New refrigerant R410A cannot be used
for earlier models.
1. Compressor specifications are different.
If recharging a R22 or R407C compressor with
R410A, durability will significantly decrease since
some of the materials used for compressor parts are
different.
2. Existing tubing cannot be used (especially R22).
Completely cleaning out residual refrigerating
machine oil is impossible, even by flushing.
R410A
3. Refrigerating machine oil differs (R22).
Since R22 refrigerating machine oil is mineral oil, it
does not dissolve in R410A. Therefore, refrigerating
machine oil discharged from the compressor can
cause compressor damage.

or limitations.
1-3. Type of Copper Tube and Insulation Material
If you wish to purchase these materials separately
from a local source, you will need:
1. Deoxidized annealed copper tube for refrigerant
tubing.
2. Foamed polyethylene insulation for copper tubes as
required to precise length of tubing. Wall thickness
of the insulation should be not less than 8 mm.
3. Use insulated copper wire for field wiring. Wire
size varies with the total length of wiring. Refer to

NOTE
1: The tubing size (LO1, LO2) connecting the outdoor units to one another is decided by the total capacity of the
outdoor units connected at tubing ends. The LO1 tubing size is determined by the total capacity of the 3 sub
units B, C, and D, which are connected after main unit A. The LO2 tubing size is determined by the total capacity of sub units C and D, which are connected after sub unit B. Refer to Table 1-11a.
2: If the maximum tubing length (L1) exceeds 90 m (or equivalent length), increase the size of both the narrow
and wide main tubing (LM) by 1 step. However, the maximum wide tubing size is φ38.1. In addition, it is not
necessary to increase the tubing sizes in the case of a 6-horsepower system. (Tubing reducers must be
obtained in the field.)

Always check the gas density limit for the room in
which the unit is installed.
Minimum indoor volume & floor area as against the
amount of refrigerant is roughly as given in the following table.
1-11. Check of Limit Density
When installing an air conditioner in a room, it is necessary to ensure that even if the refrigerant gas accidentally leaks out, its density does not exceed the limit
level for that room.
Min. indoor floor area
(when the ceiling is 2.7 m high)
If the density could exceed the limit level, it is necessary to provide an opening between the unit and the
adjacent room, or to install mechanical ventilation
which is interlocked with the leak detector.
The limit density of refrigerant which is used in this unit
is 0.3 kg/m3 (ISO 5149).
The shipped outdoor unit comes charged with the
amount of refrigerant fixed for each type, so add it to
the amount that is charged in the field. (For the refrigerant charge amount at shipment, refer to the unit’s
nameplate.)
CAUTION
Pay special attention to any
location, such as a basement,
etc., where leaking refrigerant
can accumulate, since refrigerant gas is heavier than air.

(2) In order to prevent accumulation of refrigerant oil in
stopped units, if the main tubing is horizontal then
each branch tubing length should be at an angle that
is greater than horizontal. If the main tubing is vertical, provide a raised starting portion for each branch.

(BV: purchased
separately)
(3) If there are height differences between indoor units
or if branch tubing that follows a distribution joint is
connected to only 1 unit, a trap or ball valve must be
added to that distribution joint. (When adding the ball
valve, locate it within 40 cm of the distribution joint.)
(Consult with ARGO separately concerning the ball
valve.)
If a trap or ball valve is not added, do not operate
the system before repairs to a malfunctioning
unit are completed. (The refrigerant oil sent
through the tubing to the malfunctioning unit will
accumulate and may damage the compressor.)

4. Installing thermal insulation
The thermal insulation used for a flare-nut type
valve is in the form of a bag. When the valve is
used for extension, it can be used as-is. If the
valve is used for any other purpose, use a box
cutter or similar tool to cut away the part shown in
the figure at right.
The insulation is divided into 2 parts. After performing the leak test, use vinyl tape or other
means to temporarily fasten the 2 parts together.
Then carry out final finishing.

2. Installation requirements
• Be sure to install the ball valve up-grade to prevent the inadvertent flow of oil.
• Install the ball valve at the shortest distance (within 40 cm) from the main tube. If the diameter of the ball valve
is smaller than that of the main tube, use a reducer or the like to reduce the size of the tubing at that location.
• Select a place where it is easy to operate, using careful consideration of the location in advance.

is smaller than that of the main tube, use a reducer or the like to reduce the size of the tubing at that location.
NOTE
• If the ball valve is installed at the outdoor unit (including extension for outdoor unit), face the service port of
the valve toward the outdoor unit side (see above illustration; dotted line) and allow a distance of over 50 cm
from the outdoor unit. If the ball valve is installed between the indoor unit (including extension for indoor unit)
and the main tube, face the ball valve toward the indoor unit side (see above illustration; dotted line).

1-16. Example of Tubing Size Selection and Refrigerant Charge Amount
Additional refrigerant charging
Based on the values in Tables 1-11a, 11b, 12, 13 and 16, use the narrow tubing size and length, and calculate the
amount of additional refrigerant charge using the formula below.
Required additional
–3
refrigerant charge (kg) = [366 × (a) + 259 × (b) + 185 × (c) + 128 × (d) + 56 × (e) + 26 × (f)] × 10

(c) : Narrow tubing Total length of φ15.88 (m)
(f) : Narrow tubing
●
Total length of φ6.35 (m)
Charging procedure
Be sure to charge with R410A refrigerant in liquid form.
1. After performing a vacuum, charge with refrigerant from the narrow tubing side. At this time, all valves must
be in the “fully closed” position.
2. If it was not possible to charge the designated amount, operate the system in Cooling mode while charging
with refrigerant from the wide tubing side. (This is performed at the time of the test run. For this, all valves
must be in the “fully open” position.)
Charge with R410A refrigerant in liquid form.
With R410A refrigerant, charge while adjusting the amount being fed a little at a time in order to prevent
liquid refrigerant from backing up.
●
After charging is completed, turn all valves to the “fully open” position.
●
Replace the tubing covers as they were before.
1. R410A additional charging absolutely must be done
through liquid charging.
CAUTION
2. The R410A refrigerant cylinder has a gray base
color, and the top part is pink.
3. The R410A refrigerant cylinder includes a siphon
tube. Check that the siphon tube is present. (This is
indicated on the label at the top of the cylinder.)
4. Due to differences in the refrigerant, pressure, and
refrigerant oil involved in installation, it is not possible in some cases to use the same tools for R22 and
for R410A.

Additional refrigerant charge amount is 21.093 kg.
CAUTION
Be sure to check the limit density for the room in which the
indoor unit is installed.
Min. indoor floor area
(when the ceiling is 2.7 m high)
Density limit is determined on the basis of the size of a
room using an indoor unit of minimum capacity. For
instance, when an indoor unit is used in a room (floor
area 15 m3 × ceiling height 2.7 m = room volume 40.5
m3), the graph at right shows that the minimum room
volume should be 70.3 m3 (floor area 26 m2) for refrigerant of 21.093 kg. Accordingly, openings such as louvers
are required for this room.
<Determination by calculation>
Overall refrigerant charge amount for the air conditioner: kg
(Minimum room volume for indoor unit: m3)
= 21.093 (kg) = 0.52 (kg/m3) ≥ 0.3 (kg/m3)
40.5 (m3)
Therefore, openings such as louvers are required for
this room.

2-3. Shield for Horizontal Exhaust Discharge
It is necessary to install an air-discharge chamber
(field supply) to direct exhaust from the fan horizontally if it is difficult to provide a minimum space of 2 m
between the air-discharge outlet and a nearby obstacle. (Fig. 2-9)
CAUTION
In regions with heavy snowfall, the outdoor unit should
be provided with a solid,
raised platform and snowproof vents. (Fig. 2-10)
2-4. Installing the Outdoor Unit in Heavy Snow
Areas
In locations where wind-blown snow can be a problem, snow-proof vents should be fitted to the unit and
direct exposure to the wind should be avoided as
much as possible. (Fig. 2-11) The following problems
may occur if proper countermeasures are not taken:
●
The fan in the outdoor unit may stop running, causing the unit to be damaged.
●
There may be no air flow.
●
The tubing may freeze and burst.
●
The condenser pressure may drop because of
strong wind, and the indoor unit may freeze.

3-3. Installing the Drain Piping
(1) Prepare standard hard PVC pipe (O.D. 32 mm) for
the drain and use the supplied drain hose and
hose band to prevent water leaks.
The PVC pipe must be purchased separately. The
unit’s transparent drain port allows you to check
drainage. (Fig. 3-10)
Align the hose band with end of the
hose, and tighten so that it does not
contact the bead.

CAUTION
●
Do not use adhesive at the drain connection
port on the indoor unit.
●
Insert the drain pipe until it contacts the socket,
as shown in the figure at right, then secure it
tightly with the hose band.
●
Tighten the hose clamps so their locking nuts
face upward. (Fig. 3-10)

●
Do not install an air bleeder as this may cause
water to spray from the drain pipe outlet.
(Fig. 3-12)
●
If it is necessary to increase the height of the
drain pipe, the section directly after the connection port can be raised a maximum of 50
cm. Do not raise it any higher than 50 cm, as
this could result in water leaks. (Fig. 3-13)
●
Do not install the pipe with an upward gradient
from the connection port. This will cause the
drain water to flow backward and leak when the
unit is not operating. (Fig. 3-14)
●
Do not apply force to the piping on the unit side
when connecting the drain pipe. The pipe
should not be allowed to hang unsupported
from its connection to the unit. Fasten the pipe
to a wall, frame, or other support as close to
the unit as possible. (Fig. 3-15)

If other commercially available hose bands are
used, the drain hose may become pinched or wrinkled and there is danger of water leakage. Therefore be sure to use the supplied hose bands. When
sliding the hose bands, be careful to avoid scratching the drain hose.
●
Do not use adhesive when connecting the supplied
drain hose to the drain port (either on the main unit
or the PVC pipe).
●
Wrap the hose with the supplied drain hose insulation and use the 4 twist ties so that the hose is
insulated with no gaps.
●
Connect the drain piping so that it slopes downward from the unit to the outside. (Fig. 3-95)
●
Never allow traps to occur in the course of the piping.
●
Insulate any piping inside the room to prevent dripping.
●
After the drain piping, pour water into the drain pan
to check that the water drains smoothly.

■ How to read the diagram
The vertical axis is the external static pressure (Pa) while the horizontal axis represents the air flow (m3/minute).
The characteristic curves for “HT,” “H,” “M” and “L” fan speed control are shown. The nameplate values are shown
based on the “H” air flow. For the 73 type, the air flow is 18 m3/minute, while the external static pressure is 49 Pa at
“H” position. If external static pressure is too great (due to long extension of ducts, for example), the air flow volume may drop too low at each air outlet. This problem may be solved by increasing the fan speed as explained
above.

When brazing the wide tubing, cool the tubing with
dampened shopcloths as you work, as shown in
the figure at right, to protect the unit’s thermistor
from the heat generated by brazing.
●
Be sure to insulate both the wide tubing and narrow tubing. In addition, wrap the supplied insulation
material around the tubing joints, and fasten in
place with vinyl tape or other means. Failure to
insulate the tubing may result in water leakage
from condensation.
●
Plug all gaps at tube through-holes in the unit with
insulation or a similar substance to prevent air
leakage.

3-40. Caution for Ducting Work
●
This unit has high static pressure (applicable external
static pressure Max. 167 to 216 pa (17–22 mm Aq).
In the case of small pressure resistance (for
instance, a short duct), install a damper for adjusting air flow volume as air flow volume / air flow
noise increases.
●
If the air conditioner is to be installed in a room
such as an office or meeting room which needs a
low sound level, provide a supply and return noise
absorption chamber with an acoustic liner.
●
Include an air filter (field supply) at the return duct.
Indoor Fan Performance
How to Read the Diagram
The vertical axis is the External Static Pressure (mmAq) while the horizontal axis represents the Air Flow
(m3/minute). The characteristic curve for the “H,” “Med,” and “Lo” fan speed control.
The nameplate values are shown based on the “H” air flow. Therefore in the case of 73 Type, the flow is
23 m3/minute, while the External Static Pressure is 19 mmAq at “H” position. If the external static pressure is too
great (due to long extension of duct, for example), the air flow volume may drop too low at each air outlet.

5. ELECTRICAL WIRING
5-1. General Precautions on Wiring
(1) Before wiring, confirm the rated voltage of the unit
as shown on its nameplate, then carry out the
wiring closely following the wiring diagram.
(7) Regulations on wire diameters differ from locality
to locality. For field wiring rules, please refer to
your LOCAL ELECTRICAL CODES before beginning.
(2) Provide a power outlet to be used exclusively for
each unit, and a power supply disconnect and circuit breaker for overcurrent protection should be
provided in the exclusive line.
You must ensure that installation complies with all
relevant rules and regulations.
(8) To prevent malfunction of the air conditioner
caused by electrical noise, care must be taken
when wiring as follows:
(3) To prevent possible hazards from insulation failure, the unit must be grounded.
(4) Each wiring connection must be done in accordance with the wiring system diagram. Wrong
wiring may cause the unit to misoperate or
become damaged.
(5) Do not allow wiring to touch the refrigerant tubing,
compressor, or any moving parts of the fan.
●
The remote control wiring and the inter-unit control
wiring should be wired apart from the inter-unit
power wiring.
●
Use shielded wires for inter-unit control wiring
between units and ground the shield on both sides.
(9) If the power supply cord of this appliance is damaged, it must be replaced by a repair shop
appointed by the manufacture, because special
purpose tools are required.
(6) Unauthorized changes in the internal wiring can be
very dangerous. The manufacturer will accept no
responsibility for any damage or misoperation that
occurs as a result of such unauthorized changes.

7-1. Connecting the Refrigerant Tubing
Use of the Flaring Method
Many of conventional split system air conditioners
employ the flaring method to connect refrigerant tubes
which run between indoor and outdoor units. In this
method, the copper tubes are flared at each end and
connected with flare nuts.
Fig. 7-1
Flaring Procedure with a Flare Tool
(1) Cut the copper tube to the required length with a
tube cutter. It is recommended to cut approx. 30
– 50 cm longer than the tubing length you estimate.
Copper
tubing
(2) Remove burrs at the end of the copper tube with a
tube reamer or file. This process is important and
should be done carefully to make a good flare.
(Fig. 7-1)
Reamer
Fig. 7-2
NOTE
When reaming, hold the tube end downward and be
sure that no copper scraps fall into the tube. (Fig. 7-2)
(3) Remove the flare nut from the unit and be sure to
mount it on the copper tube.

Caution Before Connecting Tubes Tightly
(1) Apply a sealing cap or water-proof tape to prevent
dust or water from entering the tubes before they
are used.
Apply refrigerant
lubricant here and here
(2) Be sure to apply refrigerant lubricant to the matching surfaces of the flare and union before connecting them together. This is effective for reducing
gas leaks. (Fig. 7-4)
Fig. 7-4
(3) For proper connection, align the union tube and
flare tube straight with each other, then screw in
the flare nut lightly at first to obtain a smooth
match. (Fig. 7-5)
●
Adjust the shape of the narrow tube (liquid tube)
using a tube bender at the installation site and
connect it to the narrow tubing side (liquid tubing
side) valve using a flare.

Cautions During Brazing
●
●
Replace air inside the tube with nitrogen gas to
prevent copper oxide film from forming during
the brazing process. (Oxygen, carbon dioxide
and Freon are not acceptable.)
Torque wrench
Spanner
Indoor unit
Do not allow the tubing to get too hot during
brazing. The nitrogen gas inside the tubing
may overheat, causing refrigerant system
valves to become damaged. Therefore allow
the tubing to cool when brazing.
●
Use a reducing valve for the nitrogen cylinder.
●
Do not use agents intended to prevent the formation of oxide film. These agents adversely
affect the refrigerant and refrigerant oil, and
may cause damage or malfunctions.

●
●
φ19.05 (3/4")
When removing the flare nuts from the tubing connections, or when tightening them after connecting
the tubing, be sure to use 2 monkey wrenches or
spanners as shown. (Fig. 7-6)
If the flare nuts are over-tightened, the flare may be
damaged, which could result refrigerant leakage
and cause in injury or asphyxiation to room occupants.

1.0 mm
Because the pressure is approximately 1.6 times
higher than conventional refrigerant pressure, the
use of ordinary flare nuts (type 1) or thin-walled
tubes may result in tube rupture, injury, or asphyxiation caused by refrigerant leakage.
For the flare nuts at tubing connections, be sure to
use the flare nuts that were supplied with the unit,
or else flare nuts for R410A (type 2). The refrigerant tubing that is used must be of the correct wall
thickness as shown in the table at right.
94
●
In order to prevent damage to the flare caused by
over-tightening of the flare nuts, use the table
above as a guide when tightening.
●
When tightening the flare nut on the narrow tube,
use a monkey wrench with a nominal handle length
of 200 mm.

7-3. Insulating the Refrigerant Tubing
Two tubes arranged together
Tubing Insulation
●
Narrow tubing
Thermal insulation must be applied to all unit tubing, including distribution joint (purchased separately).
* For gas tubing, the insulation material must be
heat resistant to 120°C or above. For other tubing,
it must be heat resistant to 80°C or above.
Insulation material thickness must be 10 mm or
greater.
If the conditions inside the ceiling exceed DB 30°C
and RH 70%, increase the thickness of the gas
tubing insulation material by 1 step.

7-4. Taping the Tubes
(1) At this time, the refrigerant tubes (and electrical
wiring if local codes permit) should be taped
together with armoring tape in 1 bundle. To prevent the condensation from overflowing the drain
pan, keep the drain hose separate from the
refrigerant tubing.
Clamp
(2) Wrap the armoring tape from the bottom of the
outdoor unit to the top of the tubing where it
enters the wall. As you wrap the tubing, overlap
half of each previous tape turn.
Insulated tubes Drain hose
(3) Clamp the tubing bundle to the wall, using 1
clamp approx. each meter. (Fig. 7-10)
NOTE
Fig. 7-10
Do not wind the armoring tape too tightly since this
will decrease the heat insulation effect. Also ensure
that the condensation drain hose splits away from the
bundle and drips clear of the unit and the tubing.
Apply putty here
7-5. Finishing the Installation
After finishing insulating and taping over the tubing,
use sealing putty to seal off the hole in the wall to prevent rain and draft from entering. (Fig. 7-11)

9-11. Checking After Installation
●
Check that there are no gaps between the unit and
the ceiling panel, or between the ceiling panel and
the ceiling surface.
Gaps may cause water leakage and condensation.
●
Check that the wiring is securely connected.
If it is not securely connected, the auto flap will not
operate. (“P09” is displayed on the remote controller.) In addition, water leakage and condensation may occur.
9-12. When Removing the Ceiling Panel for
Servicing
ASS
When removing the ceiling panel for servicing,
remove the air-intake grille and air filter, disconnect
the wiring connector inside the electrical component
box, and then remove the 4 mounting screws.
9-13. Adjusting the Auto Flap
The air-direction louver on the ceiling panel outlet can
be adjusted as follows.
●
Adjust the louver to the desired angle using the
remote controller. The louver also has an automatic
air-sweeping mechanism.
NOTE
●
Never attempt to move the louver by hand.
●
Proper air flow depends on the location of the air
conditioner, the layout of the room and furniture,
etc. If cooling or heating seems inadequate, try
changing the direction of the air flow.

11-20. Important Information for Installation of
1 Separate Receiver Unit
<Installation location>
●
Do not install in a location where the air contains oil
mist, such as in a kitchen or factory.
●
Do not install next to a window, or in any other
location directly exposed to sunlight and outside
air.
●
Do not install nearby devices which can be expected to produce electrical noise, such as elevators,
automatic doors, and industrial sewing machines.
●
If the receiver unit is installed near a rapid-start
type or inverter-type fluorescent lamp (a lamp
which does not include a glow lamp), it may not be
possible to receive the wireless remote controller
signal in some cases. In order to prevent interference from fluorescent lamps, leave a minimum of 2
meters between the receiver unit and the fluorescent lamps, and install the receiver unit in a location where it can receive the wireless remote controller signal when the fluorescent lamps are lit.

Separate Receiver Units
When using 2 receiver units to operate 1 or more
indoor units at the same time, follow the procedure
below to install them.
●
AS1S
Installation method
1. If 2 remote controllers are installed, set one of
them as the “main remote controller” (setting at
time of factory shipment).
2. At the other remote controller, remove the receiver
nameplate and switch the DIP switch to “sub
remote controller.” Under these conditions, the
receiver unit functions as the sub receiver unit.
* The TIMER lamp lights only at the remote controller that receives the signal.
●
Basic wiring diagram
* When connecting the wires, be careful not to
wire incorrectly.
(Incorrect wiring will damage the unit.)
●
Using 2 separate receiver units to control 1 indoor
unit:
* Use field wiring cables with a
cross-sectional area of at least
0.5 mm2 to 2 mm2.
