1 . 1 . 1 Dip Switch Selting
(1) Indoor Unit

The PCB in the indoor unit is equipped with 4 dip switches. Before testing unit, set these dip
switches according to the following instructions. Unless these dip switches are set in the field, the
unit can not be operated.
a. Unit No. Selting (DSW1)
Selting is required. Set the unit No. of all indoor units respectively and serially, by following
selting position shown in the table below. Numbering must start from "0" for every outdoor unit
except the case using the central station.

- 1 . 1 . 2 Checking of Electrical Wiring

Check to ensure that the terminal for power source wiring (terminals "L1" to "L1" and "N" to "N" of
each terminal board: AC380-415V) and intermediate wiring (Operating Line: terminals "1" to "1" and
"2" to "2" of each terminal board: DC12V) between the indoor unit and the outdoor unit coincide
correctly, as figure below.

Check to ensure that the shielded wires are used for intermediate wiring to protect noise obstacle at
length of less than 300m and size complied with local code.

Check to ensure that the wirings and the breakers are chosen correctly, as shown in Table 1.1.

All the field wiring and equipment must comply with local code.

Checking Method: When operation is stabilized. check to ensure that compressor


upper part temperature Td is in the appropriate range indicated
in the figure below by activation of electronic expansion valve MV1
or MV2. The opening (0~100%) of electronic expansion valve
MV1 and MV2 can be checked by outdoor unit check mode items
oE1 and oE2.
Outdoor Units Electronic Expansion Valve MVB (For Bypass)
This electronic expansion valve controls the refrigerant flow during cooling operation.

Operation Conditions: Operate all the indoor units during cooling operation.

Checking Method: When operation is stabilized. check to ensure that compressor


upper part temperature Td is in the appropriate range indicated
in the chart below by activation of electronic expansion valve MVB.
The opening (0~1 00%) of electronic expansion valve MVB can
be checked by outdoor unit check mode item oE1b.
When performing heating. the electronic valve is closed.
@ Indoor Unit Electronic Expansion Valve MV
This electronic expansion valve controls the indoor unit capacity.

Operation Conditions: Operate all the indoor units in cooling operation.

Checking Method: When operation is stabilized. check to ensure that the temperature
of the indoor unit heat exchanger gas pipe ;s higher by 2'C to 20'C
than of the liquid pipe. The temperatures of the indoor unit heat
exchanger gas pipe and liquid pipe can be checked by remote


control switch check mode items b7 and b4.

Additional Information for "CHECK LIST ON COMPRESSOR"

Check
Additionallnformation(Mechanism of Compressor Failure)
Item
1& 2 The liquid refrigerant return volume to the compressor is controlled by the discharge gas
temperature Tdl when NO.1 compressor only is operating. I' Tdl and Td2 are reversely
connected, the liquid refrigerant return volume will become small by detecting the temperatures
even even if the actual discharge gas temperature is high. Therefore, this abnormal
overheating operation will result in insulation failure of the motor winding.
3,4&5 Overcurrent control(operating frequency control) is performed by detectingcurrent by the
current sensor.
In this case, winding insulation failure will occur, since control is not available in spite of actually
high current.
6,7 The Current sensor checks phaseand adjusts outputelectrical wave in addition to the above
mentioned items. If fault occurs, the output electrical wave becomes unstable giving stress to
the motor winding, resulting in winding insulation failure.
8,9 During a cooling operation, Pd is controlled by MVl and MV2, and Td and SH are controlled by

MVB.
During a heating operation, Td and SH are controlled by MVl and MV2, and MVB is fully
closed.
If expansion valves are incorrectly connected, correctcontrol is not available, resulting in
compressor seizure depending on liquid refrigerant returning conditions or motor winding
insulation failure depending on overheating conditions.
10 If the refrigeration cycle and electrical system are incorrectly connected, abnormally low suction
pressure operation is maintained or abnormally high discharge pressureoperation is
maintained, resultinq in giving stress to the compressor, since their correct control is not
available.
11 ditto
12 The compressor may be locked due to the liquid return operation during the, cooling operation.
13 In the case that the contacting resistance becomes big, voltage imbalance among each phase
will cause abnormal overcurrent.
14 In this case, overcurrent will occur, efficiency will decrease or the motor winding will be
excessively heated.

15 In the case, it will result in motor burningor compressor seizure.

1 . 4 . 2 Test Run Mode by Outdoor Unit

(1) Purpose: This function is used to check operation conditions of components by test operation from
the outdoor unit by a service engineer.

(2) Operation Method: After setting the dip switch, DSW4 on on the outdoor unit PCB, turn ON the
main switch. After power supply, wait for more than 5 minutes due to automatic address setting by
the micro-computer, and then, start the test operation.

a. All the indoor units connected to the outdoor unit are automatically started under the same
operation mode such as cooling or heating.

c In the case that the operation mode such as operation controlled by remote control switches or
central station, the normal test operation is not available.
@Remote Control Switch: Switch OFF the "RUN/STOP switch.
@Central Station: Stop the central control and give instruction for individual operation.
After the test operation by the outdoor unit is started, If the above mentioned controller are
used, operation mode may be changed or this test operation may be automatically stopped.
Therefore, do not touch any controllers.

d. If the system is stopped due to an alarm during this test operation, turn OFF the main power
sw~ch and remove the cause of the alarm and then, supply power to the system so that the test
operation can be re-started.
