Refined Design Meets Advanced
Realising compact technology with performance
As a leading global innovator, Daikin advanced from the conventional 2 module combination to a single module for 20 HP model. This allows the installation area to reduce by 43% as compared to the previous VIII Series.
With this unbridled passion for high quality and advanced technology solutions, the new 20 HP is designed with the following considerations:
- Increase surface area of heat exchanger for better performance
- Easy maintenance
- Sufficient cooling for electrical component
- Eliminate suction resistance issue to enhance air flow volume.
Increase surface area of heat exchanger
The unique 4-sided all round heat exchanger ensure sufficient surface area for the heat exchanger as oppose to conventional 3-sided heat exchanger. This improves the heat exchanger performance without increasing the footprint.
In previous VRV design, the electrical component is usually situated on the front surface which requires the whole electrical component to be removed before maintenance can be carried out.
With the new design, the electrical component is strategically located on the top which ease the maintenance process.
Moreover, the heat exchanger on the front side can be extended to take up the previous space used for the electrical component and improve its performance.
Sufficient cooling for electrical component
The new 20 HP model is designed with the electrical box strategically located between a region of positive and negative pressure. This design allows a larger air flow from negative pressure to positive pressure due to the higher pressure difference.
The small holes created in the electric box are now close to the fan blower inlet, thus a significant pressure difference can still be achieved unlike that of VRV III.
Eliminate suction resistance issue
Without affecting the fan volume, the electric component is re-designed to the top and free up the dead space that existed in previous VRV III models. This eliminates the problem of suction resistance.
VRT-Variable Refrigerant Temperature
State-of-the-art energy saving technology for VRV system
Customise your VRV system for optimal annual efficiency
The new VRV IV system now features VRT technology. VRT automatically adjusts refrigerant temperature to individual building and climate requirement, thus further improving annual energy efficiency and maintaining comfort. With this excellent technology, running costs are reduced.
How is energy reduced?
During cooling, the refrigerant evaporating temperature (Te) is raised to minimise the difference with the condensing temperature. Compressors work less, and this reduces power consumption.
Typical changes in evaporating temperature and COP depending on changing indoor load
New system, saving more energy
Basic mode is selected to maintain optimal comfort.
VRT is selected to save energy and prevent excessive cooling.
VRT offers quicker cool down to shorten uncomfortable pull down time.
Recommended for use in these situations
- Cooling only regions having differences in daily temperature.
- VRT is particularly effective at night when temperatures are low.
More Flexible System Design
More options for installation location
Long piping length
The long piping length provides more design flexibility, which can match even large-sized buildings.
Connection capacity at maximum is 200%.
High external static pressure
Reliable and Stable System
Multiple advanced features ensuring more accurate test operation and stable system
Efficient automatic test operation
Daikin VRV IV system incorporates a simplified and efficient test operation function, not only greatly accelerating the installation process, but effectively improving the field setting quality as well.
- Automatically checks the wirings between outdoor units and indoor units to confirm whether there is a defective wiring.
- Confirms and corrects the actual piping length.
- Automatically checks whether the stop valve in each outdoor unit is in normal status to ensure the smooth operation of air conditioning system.
Simplified commissioning and after-sales service
Function of information display by luminous digital tube
VRV IV system utilises 7-segment luminous digital tubes to display system operation information, enabling the operational state to be visually displayed whilst facilitating simplified commissioning and after-sales service.
- The VRV configurator is an advanced software solution that allows for easy system configuration and commissioning.
- Less time is required on the roof for outdoor unit configuration.
- Multiple systems at different sites can be managed in the exact same way, thus offering simplified commissioning for key accounts.
- Initial settings on the outdoor unit can be retrieved easily.
Limit to power consumption can be set precisely to one of 11 levels. Peak power cut-off can be accomplished according to each user situation.
*Set on the circuit board of the outdoor unit.
Wide operation temperature range
The versatile operation range of the VRV IV system works to reduce limitations on installation locations. The operation temperature range for cooling can be performed with outdoor temperatures as high as 49 ̊C.
Outdoor unit sequencing technology
Automatic sequencing operation
During start-up, Daikin VRV IV unit sequencing operation will be automatically enabled to ensure balance operation of each outdoor unit to improve longevity of equipment and stable operation.
Double backup operation functions responding resiliently to various unexpected situations
Double backup operation functions
Daikin VRV IV system boasts double backup operation functions, which can secure the use of air conditioners in this area to the greatest extent by emergently enabling double backup operation functions even if failure occurs in a set of air conditioning equipment.
In the event of a failure, emergency operation can be conveniently enabled to allow the remaining system to operate in a limited fashion.
Ease of Maintenance
Double backup operation functions
VRV IV provides maintenance feature* which allows the shutdown of FCU without shutting down the whole VRV system. This feature comes in handy during maintenance period as the remaining indoor units continue to operate.
* Field setting is required.
This feature does not apply to BP unit connection.
