Dual Cool With Air


This system has all the features of an air cooled system but adds a second cooling coil that is connected to a source of chilled water. This second coil is controlled by a three-way modulating control valve. It is the primary source of cooling and dehumidification so compressor operation is reduced.

Dual Cool With Glycol


This system has all the features of a glycol cooled system but adds a second cooling coil that is connected to a source of chilled water. This second coil is controlled by a three-way, modulating control valve. It is the primary source of cooling and dehumidification so compressor operation is reduced.

Introduction

2.0
2.1

INSTALLATION
Room Preparation
The room should be well insulated and must have a sealed vapor barrier. The vapor barrier in the ceiling can be a polyethylene film type. Use a rubber or plastic base paint on concrete walls and floors. Doors should not be undercut or have grilles in them. Outside (or fresh) air should be kept to an absolute minimum. Outside air adds to the heating, cooling, humidifying and dehumidifying loads of the site. It is recommended that outside air be kept below 5% of the total air circulated in the room and be pre-conditioned.

2.2

Equipment Inspection
Upon arrival of the unit, inspect all items for either visible or concealed damage. Damage should be immediately reported to the carrier and a damage claim filed with a copy sent to Liebert or to your sales representative.

2.3

Equipment Handling
!

WARNING

The instructions listed below are to be adhered to when handling this unit with or without the skid. There is the potential for this unit to tip over if handled improperly which will cause damage to the unit and could cause injury or death to the unit handler(s).

2.3.1

Handling With Skid


Always keep the unit vertically upright, indoors, and protected from possible damage. If possible transport the unit using a forklift truck; otherwise use a crane with belts or cables, avoiding pressing on the top edges of the packaging. If using a forklift truck, make sure the forks (if adjustable) are spread to the widest allowable distance to still fit under the skid. When moving the skidded unit with a forklift truck, lift from one narrow end of the unit approximately 2-4" (50-100 mm) off the ground. Allow the opposite end to remain touching the ground and pull the unit with the forklift truck whenever possible.

CAUTION

While on the skid, the unit is too tall (83-1/4" domestic, 84-3/8" export) to fit through a standard height doorway (83" [2108 mm] tall). Any attempt to move the unit, while skidded, through a standard doorway will cause damage to the unit.

Installation

2.3.2

Removal of Skid
Always keep the unit vertically upright, indoors, and protected from possible damage. Remove the four bolts securing the skid to the base pan of the unit from the underside of the skid. For skid removal Liebert Corporation recommends using dual hand trucks (see Figure 1) or similar operation. This is to ensure that both ends of the unit are firmly secure and to minimize the amount of base pan deflection. Once the unit is elevated off the skid, the skid can be removed.

Location Considerations
The unit can sit on top of an accessible elevated flooring system. It may be necessary to furnish additional pedestal support below the unit to ensure maximum structural support (see Table 1). A separate floor stand for the unit may be used as support, independent of the elevated floor and installed prior to the flooring system. See Figure 2 through Figure 5 for dimensions of the various units. NOTE All units must be elevated to make the piping connections. A raised floor, floor stand or base module must be used. Provide approximately 31-1/2" (800 mm) service clearance on the front of the unit. NOTE Motor/blower access is possible only from the top of the unit on upflow models so installation must provide access to these components. Avoid locating units in an alcove or at the extreme end of a room that has a high aspect ratio (long narrow room). Ducted units can be located in room corners or ends as long as front access is maintained. Placing units too close together will reduce the effectiveness of the air distribution.

Piping Considerations
All piping to the unit enters through the bottom of the unit. The piping must be located so that it offers the least resistance to air flow. Careful planning of the piping layout under the raised floor is required to prevent the air flow from being blocked. When installing piping on the subfloor, it is recommended that the pipes be mounted in a horizontal plane rather than stacked one above the other. Whenever possible, the pipes should be run parallel to the air flow. See Figure 6 through Figure 15 for piping connection details. Condensate pumps for downflow units are shipped separately to be field-installed under the raised floor or in the base module. A minimum of 12" (305 mm) is required as clearance to install the condensate pump.

2.5.1

Drain Line
A 3/4" (19.1 mm) female pipe thread (FPT) connection is provided for the evaporator coil condensate drain This drain line also drains the humidifier, if applicable. The drain line must be located so it will not be exposed to freezing temperatures. The drain should be at least the full size of the drain connection and pitched a minimum of 1/8" per ft. (3.2 mm per 305 mm). NOTE This line may contain boiling water. Select appropriate drain system materials. NOTE All units contain a factory-installed condensate trap. Do NOT add an external trap.

Balancing Air Distribution


Under-Floor Discharge Systems
The systems are designed for constant air delivery, therefore any unusual restrictions within the air circuit must be avoided. For under-floor air distribution, observe the following guidelines: Select the air supply grilles and perforated panels for the raised floor to ensure minimum loss of pressure in the circuit. Air volume dampers on grilles, which extend several inches below the surface of the raised floor, are usually detrimental to airflow. Consideration of the height of the damper on the grille in conjunction with the floor height will determine whether this type of grille may be used. The grilles used in raised floors vary in size; the largest is approximately 18" x 6" (457 x 152 mm). A larger grille size would be detrimental to the structural capacity of the raised floor panel. An 18" x 6" (457 x 152 mm) heavy duty, pencil-proof type grille typically has 56 square inches (0.036 m2) of free area. Perforated panels are available from various manufacturers of raised floors. These panels are usually 2' x 2' (610 x 610 mm) square and have a nominal free area of approximately 108 to 144 square inches (0.07 to 0.09 m2). Use caution in selecting perforated panels as some manufacturers have only 36 to 40 square inches (0.023 to 0.026 m2)of free area, requiring four times as many panels. Avoid floor elevations below 7-1/2" (190.5 mm), loosely installed flooring systems, and below-floor obstructions such as electrical wiring chases, unusually long electronic system cables, or piping clusters. Always check specifications of the floor supplier before specifying the total number of perforated panels and grilles required to handle the air flow. The proper specifications for grilles and perforated panels should indicate the total free area required for air delivery rather than the number of panels and grilles. (See Table 2 for recommended free area required for each model.) This table indicates the recommended free area based on having the supply air grilles and perforated panels sized to handle approximately 75% of the total cubic feet per minute (CFM) of the units at a velocity of 550 to 600 ft./ min. (2.8 - 3.1 m/s). The remaining 25% of the air flow in the raised floor passes through cable cutouts, cracks between the panels, and other leakage areas.

AIR COOLED MODELS


Condenser Location
The air cooled condenser should be located for maximum security and maintenance accessibility. Avoid ground level sites with public access or areas which contribute to heavy snow or ice accumulations. Utilize centrifugal condensers whenever interior building locations must by used. To assure adequate air supply, it is recommended that condensers be located in a clean air area, away from loose dirt and foreign matter that may clog the coil. In addition, condensers should not be located in the vicinity of steam, hot air, or fume exhausts. Also, condensers should be located no closer than 3 feet (1 meter) from a wall, obstruction, or adjacent unit. Install condensers in a level position to assure proper refrigerant flow and oil return. For roof installation, mount condensers on steel supports in accordance with local codes. To minimize sound and vibration transmission, mount steel supports across load bearing walls. For ground installation, a concrete pad will provide adequate support. Condenser legs have mounting holes for securing the condenser to the steel supports or concrete pad.

3.2

Electrical Connections
Refer to equipment nameplate regarding wire size and circuit protection requirements. Refer to electrical schematic when making connections. Make all wiring and electrical connection in accordance with local and national codes.

!
3.2.1

WARNING

Use a voltmeter to make sure power is turned off before making any electrical connections.

Line Voltage
Line voltage electrical service is required for all air cooled condensers at the location of the condenser. This power supply does not have to be the same voltage as the indoor unit. This separate power source may be 208, 230, 460, or 575 Volts, 60 Hertz. The disconnect switch may be factory supplied and mounted in the electrical panel or field-supplied and mounted per local and national codes.

3.2.2

Low Voltage
A control interlock between the condenser and the indoor unit is required and is connected between 70 and 71 in the handy box of the indoor unit and the electric panel of the air cooled condenser. NEC Class 1 wiring is required.

Refrigerant Piping
All refrigeration piping should be installed with high temperature brazed joints. Prevailing good refrigeration practices should be employed for piping supports, leak testing, dehydration and charging of the refrigeration circuits. All cooled units are shipped from the factory with a nitrogen holding charge. NOTE The refrigeration piping should be isolated from the building by the use of vibration isolating supports. NOTE Piping, including inverted trap(s), must be routed to allow unobstructed access to the panel per the NEC. Traps should be installed in the hot gas line on vertical risers at the base and every 25 feet (7.6 meters) in elevation. These traps will collect condensed refrigerant and refrigerant oil during the off cycle of the unit and ensure flow of refrigerant oil during operation. Factory approval is required whenever a refrigerant piping run exceeds 150 feet (46 meters) equivalent length or when condensers must be located more than 15 feet (4.6 meters) below the level of the cooling coil. Total discharge line pressure drop must not exceed 10 PSIG (69 kPa). Consult your local Liebert representative when considering installations outside these guidelines.

Dehydration/Leak Test and Charging Procedures for R407C or R22 Fan Speed Control Type Condenser

CAUTION

All local codes for handling refrigerant must be followed NOTE As R22 and R407C are similar in properties, proper safety equipment and proper refrigeration tools are required on both types. Check unit nameplate for correct refrigerant type before topping off or recharging a system. NOTE Refrigerant R407C uses a POE (polyol ester) lubricant. The R407C refrigerant must be introduced and charged from the cylinder only as a liquid.

Dehydration/Leak Test
1. Make sure unit is OFF. Open all disconnects and remove all fuses except control fuses. On units supplied with circuit breakers, open all breakers except for the transformer. 2. Add a jumper to the Fan Safety Switch between Common and Normal Open and disconnect the wire connected to the Normally Closed. Turn unit disconnect ON. (Fan operation not required.) NOTE The above allows the technician to use unit 24 VAC power and controls to open liquid line solenoid valve(s) and hot gas bypass solenoid valve(s) for the dehydration process. If no power is at the unit disconnect, the technician is to use a separate 24 VAC source rated at 75 VA and connect to the system liquid line solenoid valve(s) and hot gas bypass solenoid valve(s) directly. 3. Connect refrigeration gauges to the suction and discharge service valves of the compressor. Open all compressor service valves. 4. To energize the liquid line solenoid valves through the control system power, set the control temperature setpoint (see operation manual) to 60oF (15oC) and set the % relative humidity setpoint higher than the conditioned room ambient to ensure that solenoid valves and hot gas bypass valves are open during the dehydration process. 5. Pressurize the system circuit(s) to 150 PSIG (1034 kPa) by using dry nitrogen with a trace of refrigerant. Check system for leaks with suitable leak finder. 6. After completion of leak testing, release the test pressure (per local code) and pull a deep vacuum on the system with a suitable pump. 7. After four hours, check the pressure readings, and if they have not changed, break vacuum with refrigerant. Pull another vacuum to 250 microns or less. Recheck the pressure after two hours. After completing this step, pressurize the circuits with refrigerant (R407C liquid or R22 vapor per unit nameplate) until suction and discharge pressures have equalized.

Charging
1. Make sure unit is OFF. Open all disconnect switches and, on units supplied with circuit breakers, open all breakers. Replace all fuses for the Fan and Compressors or close breakers. 2. Remove jumper on the Fan Safety Switch and reconnect the system wire connections. Ensure that all operational components are clear of debris. Turn unit ON. (Fan operation is required.) Check the evaporator fan for proper rotation and correct if necessary. 3. Connect the refrigerant gauge charging hose to the drum of refrigerant and to the suction and discharge service valves of the compressor. 4. Calculate the amount of charge for the system. Weigh in as much of the system charge as possible. Refer to the unit, condenser and refrigerant line charge tables. 5. Set the control temperature setpoint (see operation manual) to 60oF (15oC) and set the % relative humidity setpoint higher than the conditioned room ambient to ensure that solenoid valves and hot gas bypass valves are open during the charging procedure. You may have to bypass the LP Switch to start the compressors and stop short cycling. Reset the Head Pressure switch(es) if open. 6. Add refrigerant (R407C liquid, or R22 vapor per unit nameplate) to the suction side of the compressor until there is sufficient pressure to energize the low-pressure switch. NOTE When adding refrigerant to an operating system, it may be necessary to add the refrigerant through the compressor suction service valve. Because the refrigerant leaving the refrigerant cylinder must be in a liquid state, care must be exercised to avoid damage to the compressor. It is suggested that a sight glass be connected between the charging hose and the compressor suction service valve. This will permit adjustment of the cylinder hand valve so that liquid can leave the cylinder while allowing vapor to enter the compressor. Then you may remove the manual bypass you applied earlier. 7. Charge the unit until the liquid line sight glass becomes clear. Then add one additional pound of refrigerant. 8. As head pressure builds, the condenser fan will start rotating. The fan will become fully energized when sufficient head pressure is developed. (Fan starts to rotate at 190 psi and is full speed at 250 psi.) Table 8 Refrigerant control settings psi (kPa)

Glycol Piping
!

CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION

Galvanized pipe must not be used in or with systems or units that contain glycol. The phosphates in the inhibitor can react with the zinc in the galvanized pipe, precipitating an insoluble material that can eventually foul the system.

To help prevent piping failures, supply and return lines must be supported in a way that keeps their weight from bearing on the piping of the unit, drycooler or pumps. To avoid the possibility of burst pipes, it is necessary to install a relief valve in the system. This valve may be obtained from the supplier as an option or obtained from another vendor. Fluid cooled condensers have small internal flow passages. To avoid clogging and other resulting system operation problems, install a 16-20 mesh filter in the fluid supply line to the indoor unit. The filter should be located where it can be easily serviced or replaced.

Do not install unit on open loop systems. Debris carried by the fluid will clog the brazed plate condenser. It is recommended that manual service shut-off valves be installed at the supply and return connections to each unit. This enables routine service and/or emergency isolation of the unit. In addition, multiple pump packages require a check valve at the discharge of each pump to prevent back flow through the standby pump(s). To facilitate filling, installation of hose bibs at the lowest point of the system is recommended. Consideration of the minimum glycol temperature to be supplied from the drycooler will determine if the need exists to insulate the glycol supply and return lines. Insulation will prevent condensation on the glycol lines in low ambient conditions. All fluid piping must comply with local codes. Care in sizing pipes will help reduce pumping power and operating costs. Table 10

Expansion Tanks, Fluid Relief Valves and Other Devices


An expansion tank must be provided for expansion and contraction of the fluid due to temperature change in this closed system. Vents are required at system high points to vent trapped air when filling the system. A relief valve is a also a necessary piping component. Depending on the complexity of the system, various other devices may be specified. Pressure gauges, flow switches, automatic air separator, tempering valves, standby pumps, sensors for electrical controls, and flow switches are just a few of these devices.

Immediately following the use of water for leak testing or system cleaning, charge the tested system with the proper percentage of glycol and water for your coldest design ambient. Complete system draindown cannot be assured and damage to the system could result from freezing of residual water.

CAUTION

4.5.1

Filling Instructions
Preparing the System for Filling
It is important to remove any dirt, oil or metal filings that may contaminate the cooling system piping in order to prevent contamination of the fresh glycol solution and fouling of the drycooler piping. The system should be flushed thoroughly using a mild cleaning solution or high-quality water and then completely drained before charging with glycol. Cleaning new systems is just as important as cleaning old ones. New systems can be coated with oil or a protective film; dirt and scale are also common. Any residual contaminants could adversely affect the heat transfer stability and performance of your system. In many cases, in both old and new systems, special cleaners are needed to remove scale, rust and hydrocarbon foulants from pipes, manifolds and passages. Clean heat transfer surfaces are important in maintaining the integrity of the heating/cooling system. For more information on cleaners and degreasers, contact your sales representative. Follow the manufacturer's instructions when using these products. Calculate the internal volume of the system as closely as possible. See Table 11 and Table 13 for unit volumes. Use volume in Table 12 for glycol piping volumes. Table 11 Indoor unit glycol volume approximate gallons (liters) max.

Glycol Solutions
NOTE Glycol solutions should be considered for protection of the coil. When it is not used, damage can occur from either freezing or corrosion from water. When considering the use of any glycol products in a particular application, you should review the latest Material Safety Data Sheets and ensure that the use you intend can be accomplished safely. For Material Safety Data Sheets and other product safety information, contact the supplier nearest you. Before handling any other products mentioned in the text, you should obtain available product safety information and take necessary steps to ensure safety of use.

CAUTION

When mishandled, glycol products pose a threat to the environment. Before using any glycol products, review the latest Material Safety Data Sheets and ensure that you can use the product safely. Glycol manufacturers request that the customer read, understand and comply with the information on the product packaging and in the current Material Safety Data Sheets. Make this information available to anyone responsible for operation, maintenance and repair of the drycooler and related equipment.

No chemical should be used as or in a food, drug, medical device, or cosmetic, or in a product or process in which it may contact a food, drug, medical device, or cosmetic until the user has determined the suitability and legality of the use. Since government regulations and use conditions are subject to change, it is the user's responsibility to determine that this information is appropriate and suitable under current, applicable laws and regulations.

CAUTION

Automotive antifreeze is unacceptable and must NOT be used.

Typical inhibited formula ethylene glycol and propylene glycol manufacturers and suppliers are Union Carbide (Ucartherm) or Dow Chemical (Dowtherm SR-1, Dowfrost). These glycols are supplied with corrosion inhibitors and do not contain a silicone anti-leak formula. Commercial ethylene glycol, when pure, is generally less corrosive to the common metals of construction than water itself. Aqueous solutions of these glycols, however, assume the corrosivity of the water from which they are prepared and may become increasingly corrosive with use if not properly inhibited. There are two basic types of additives: corrosion inhibitors and environmental stabilizers. The corrosion inhibitors function by forming a surface barrier that protects the metals from attack. Environmental stabilizers, while not corrosion inhibitors in the strictest sense of the word, decrease corrosion by stabilizing or favorably altering the overall environment. An alkaline buffer such as borax is a simple example of an environmental stabilizer since its prime purpose is to maintain an alkaline condition (pH above 7). The percentage of glycol to water must be determined by using the lowest design outdoor temperature in which the system is operating. Table 13 indicates the solution freeze point at several concentration levels of ethylene glycol. Propylene glycol concentrations should be 1% higher than the ethylene glycol table values to find the freeze point. For example, 41% propylene glycol freezes at -10F. Table 13 Ethylene glycol concentrations
0* 32 (0) 1 10 25 (-3.9) 1.014 20 16 (-8.9) 1.028 30 5 (-15.0) 1.042 40 -10 (-23.3) 1.057 50 -32 (-35.5) 1.071 % Glycol by Volume Freezing Point F (C) Apparent Specific Gravity @ 50F (10C)

* A minimal amount of glycol should be considered for inhibitive coil protection.

CAUTION

The quality of water used for dilution must be considered because water may contain corrosive elements which reduce the effectiveness of the inhibited formulation. Water that is classified as soft (low in chloride and sulfate ion content less than 100 parts per million each) should be used.

Filling the System


Installation of hose bibs at the lowest point of the system is recommended. When filling a glycol system keep air to a minimum. Air in glycol turns to foam and is difficult and time-consuming to remove. (Anti-foam additives are available and may be considered.) Open all operating systems to the loop. With the top vent(s) open, fill the system from the bottom of the loop. This will allow the glycol to push the air out of the top of the system, minimizing trapped air. Fill to approximately 80% of calculated capacity. Fill slowly from this point, checking fluid levels until full. NOTE For glycol solution preparation and periodic testing, follow manufacturer's recommendations. Do not mix products of different manufacturers.

Condenser
The condenser is designed to operate in conjunction with a drycooler. The maximum coolant pressure is 150 psig (1034 kPa). A high pressure system rated at 350 psig (2413 kPa) is available as an option.

4.7

Glycol Regulating Valve


The glycol regulating valve automatically regulates the amount of coolant necessary to remove the heat from the refrigeration system, permitting more fluid to flow when load conditions are high and less fluid to flow when load conditions are low. The valve consists of a brass body, balance spring, valve seat, valve disc holders, capillary tube to discharge pressure, and adjusting screw.

4.7.1

Standard Valve-150psig (1034kPa) & High Pressure Valve-350psig (2413kPa) Systems Adjustment
The valve may be adjusted with a standard refrigeration service valve wrench or screwdriver. To lower the head pressure setting, turn the square adjusting screw clockwise until the high pressure gauge indicates the desired setting. To raise the head pressure setting, turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise until the desired setting is obtained.

Figure 23 Valve adjustment


Range spring Valve spring guide Range adjustment screw Top retainer Insert screwdrivers underneath the valve spring guide

Manual Flushing
The valve may be flushed by inserting a screwdriver or similar tool under the two sides of the main spring and lifting. This action will open the valve seat and flush any dirt particles from the seat. If this fails, it will be necessary to disassemble the valve and clean the seat.

4.7.2

Testing Valve Function


When the refrigeration system has been off for approximately 10-15 minutes, the coolant flow should stop. Should the coolant continue to flow, the valve is either improperly adjusted or the pressure sensing capillary is not connected properly to the condenser.

Chilled Water Piping Considerations
Manual shut-off valves should be installed at the supply and return chilled water lines to each unit. This will provide for routine service and emergency isolation of the unit. Consideration of the minimum water temperature to be supplied from the chiller will determine if the need exists to insulate supply and return lines. Insulation will prevent condensation on the supply and return lines. To provide for the emergency of water leaks and the consequences of sub-floor flooding, floor drains should be provided with wet traps or a water detection system, such as a Liqui-Tect, that is installed near the base of the unit or below the elevated floor.

MOTOR/BLOWER/AUTO-TRANSFORMER
Description
The Himod has two single-inlet, backward-curved, centrifugal-type blowers. Each blower has a direct drive fan motor. The fans are mounted on vibration absorbing rubber supports to reduce vibration. A field-adjustable auto-transformer provides the motor supply voltage for standard operation (high speed) and for reduced air flow with a lower voltage (low speed) when in dehumidification mode. The microprocessor will direct the high-speed motor contactor for high-speed (normal operation) or lowspeed motor contactor for low speed (dehumidification mode). A main fan auxiliary switch is provided to indicate when the unit is on. A main fan overload set of contacts is activated when a motor overload alarm condition exists.

6.2

Blower Curves
Figure 24 through Figure 26 show performance of the Himod per the catalog/factory settings (shown by dot). For each tonnage, there is a unique blower curve for upflow units, for downflow units, for upflow with Econ-O-Coils (GLYCOOL or dual cool), and for downflow with Econ-O-Coils (GLYCOOL or dual cool). NOTE The factory setting (represented by dot) indicates the rated air flow: Q (CFM) and the rated external static pressure: AESP (IWGinches water gauge), and the relevant motor voltage. This motor voltage is the high-speed motor voltage for normal operation as supplied by the auto-transformer. The low-speed or dehumidification air flow is approximately 12% less than the rated high-speed air flow.

Standard Unit Auto-Transformer Settings


Table 17 and Table 18 show the factory settings for the units. To determine the correct settings, the unit model number and type must be known. Next, the relevant blower curve is used to find the catalog airflow and external static pressure (See Figure 24 through Figure 26). The dot on the blower curve will indicate the catalog setting in addition to the motor voltage from the auto-transformer for standard operation (high speed). Table 17 and Table 18 will indicate the factory wiring for the autotransformer high-speed and low-speed settings. Figure 28 shows an example of the auto-transformer connections for a model HMU40K/D/H, 460V - 3 phase -60 Hz with factory/catalog settings. NOTE The charts and figures are dependent on the unit input power. Be sure you are referring to the correct chart. NOTE The auto-transformer has three phases. Each connection is repeated for each phase.

Field Adjustments to Air Volume and/or External Static Pressure


When a change (different from the catalog/factory pre-wired setting) for the unit air volume and/or the external static pressure is desired, the auto-transformer may be re-wired.

WARNING WARNING CAUTION

Use a voltmeter to make sure power is turned off before making any electrical connections. Potentially lethal voltages exist within this equipment during operation.

It is imperative that all wiring is done correctly. Miswiring can cause damage to the unit. Potentially lethal voltages exist within this equipment during operation.

Proper phasing is required to maintain the correct blower rotation direction. As shown in Figure 29, Phase 1 is to the left, Phase 2 is in the center, and Phase 3 is on the right. (Figure 28 provides an example [rotated for viewing ease] of the auto-transformer factory wiring for a model HMU40K/D/H with 460V, 3 phase, 60 Hz power input.) Wires are marked with hot stamps that end with a 1 for Phase 1, a 2 for Phase 2, and a 3 for Phase 3. The individual jumpers go between terminals within a single phase. The specific terminals are dependent upon the desired voltage. Jumpers are not hot stamped. Never connect wires across the phases.

Procedure to Make a Field Wiring Change


1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Turn off disconnect and main power to the unit. Refer to the specified unit blower curve. Find the desired air volume and external static pressure, and the relevant point. Find the relevant motor voltage for this new point. (Follow the voltage curve up and to the left scale for motor voltage.) This will be the standard, high-speed voltage needed for the motor. Confirm the unit input voltage (per unit model number, eighth digit) or the serial tag. Use Table 19 for 208 or 230V unit input voltage; use Table 20 for 460V unit input voltage. With the data and table selected in Steps 5 and 6, wire the unit for the nearest transformer tap voltage for the desired high-speed motor voltage (in the Standard Output columns) as found in Step 3. Continue to wire the unit for Low Fan Speed for dehumidification by following the select transformer tap voltage which is located in the table, just to the right of the same row of data used in Step 6. Verify that all connections for high and low fan speed are made before restarting the unit. Settings for 208 or 230V- 60 Hz units (unit voltage code: C or D)

Example of Field Adjustment to Air Volume and/or External Static Pressure


The following example illustrates how to proceed through the steps in 6.5 - Field Adjustments to Air Volume and/or External Static Pressure. For this exercise, a model HMU28K_A is desired to have 5400 CFM and 0.8 IWG (rather than catalog rated 5815 CFM & 0.2 IWG).

WARNING WARNING CAUTION

Use a voltmeter to make sure power is turned off before making any electrical connections. Potentially lethal voltages exist within this equipment during operation.

It is imperative that all wiring is done correctly. Miswiring can cause damage to the unit. Potentially lethal voltages exist within this equipment during operation.

Proper phasing is required to maintain the correct blower rotation direction. As shown in Figure 29, Phase 1 is to the left, Phase 2 is in the center, and Phase 3 is on the right. (Figure 28 provides an example [rotated for viewing ease] of the auto-transformer factory wiring for a model HMU40K/D/H with 460V, 3 phase, 60 Hz power input.) Wires are marked with hot stamps that end with a 1 for Phase 1, a 2 for Phase 2, and a 3 for Phase 3. The individual jumpers go between terminals within a single phase. The specific terminals are dependent upon the desired voltage. Jumpers are not hot stamped. Never connect wires across the phases.

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

8. 9.

Turn the unit disconnect and main power to the unit off. Refer to the Blower Curve for the model HMU28K/D/H. Locate 5400 CFM & 0.8 IWG on the curve (refer to Figure 30). Find the voltage nearest the point in Step 3, which is approximately 345V. This is the desired motor voltage for the high fan speed. Per the model number of the noted unit, the eighth digit is A representing 460 volts. (Unit serial tag would also state 460V.) Refer to Table 20 on page 52 (because the unit input power is 460V). Per the blower curve, the desired motor voltage was 345. Per Table 20, the nearest transformer tap to 345 is 340V. (See Table 20.) The orange wire for each phase must be connected to the autotransformer terminals G. The orange jumpers for each phase must be connected to the autotransformer terminals B & E. Note, all the brown wire connections should be connected to the auto-transformer terminals D. The low-speed transformer tap will be set for 260V per Table 20. The red wire for each phase must be connected to the auto-transformer terminals M. The red jumpers for each phase must be connected to the auto-transformer terminals A & I. Verify that all connections for high and low fan speed have been made per Table 20.

R407C REFRIGERANT
Technical Notes
The Himod design and manufacturing processes have been optimized to operate with green refrigerant R407C. R407C is an HFC fluid (hydrofluorocarbon). (The Himod is also available with R22 for customers who have existing facilities that have not been converted to the R407C refrigerant.) The main features of R407C are: It is a non-azeotropic mixture made of R32/R125/R134a in which the percentage weight composition is in ratio 23/25/52. It has thermophysical features similar to R22. It has an ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) equal to zero (0). It is nonflammable in air. It has low toxicity. NOTE R407C refrigerant is incompatible with the mineral oils that are usually used with R12 and R22. Therefore, new synthetic lubricants, based on polyester molecules, have been developed for their use. NOTE The pressure-enthalpy chart below illustrates the R407C refrigeration cycle and the resulting glide from the blend.
