Preface

Blueridge Free Match System adopts the cutting-edge manufacturing technology and takes global acknowledged, environmental-friendly R410A as refrigerant, which is a green product in the 21st century. Please carefully read this manual before installation and operation. Instructions before reading this manual:

  1. This unit measures on the base of UL1995.
  2. Free Match System conforms to design standard: ARI 210240-2008.
  3. For guaranteeing personal safety when operating this system, please strictly follow the instructions listed in the manual.
  4. The total capacity of the indoor units which runs at the same time can not exceed that of the outdoor units; otherwise, the cooling (heating) effect of each indoor unit would be poor.

    Minimum capacity of connectable indoor units 18KBtu 18KBtu 18KBtu
    Maximum capacity of connectable indoor units 42KBtu 48KBtu 56KBtu
  5. Switch the main power on 8 hours before starting the unit, helpful for a successful startup.
  6. It is a normal phenomenon that the indoor unit fan will still run for 20~70 seconds after the indoor unit receives the “stop” signal so as to make full use of after-heat for the next operation.
  7. When the running modes of the indoor and outdoor units conflict, it will be indicated on the display of the wired controller in five seconds and then the indoor unit will stop. In this case, they can back to the normal condition by harmonizing their running modes: the cooling mode is compatible with the dehumidifying mode and the fan mode can go with any other mode. If the supply power fails when the unit is running, then the indoor unit will send the “start” signal to the outdoor unit three minutes later after power recovery.
  8. Cautions for the Debugging and Maintenance Personnel:
    During debugging and maintenance, prior to the startup of the compress make sure the heating belt of the compressor has been energized for at least eight hours! Once the compressor is started, it must be guaranteed that it works continuously for at least 30 minutes, otherwise it would be damaged!

  4. When the compressor is not running, charge the R410A refrigerant into the refrigerant pipe from the liquid valve of the outdoor unit (do not do it from the gas valve).
Additional refrigerant charging

(1) Refrigerant Charge in the Outdoor Unit before Shipment

NOTICE

1) Outdoor unit has been charged refrigerant before delivery. The refrigerant charge is not included those charged additionally in the indoor unit and the refrigerant pipe.
2) The amount of the additional refrigerant charge is dependent on the diameter and length of the liquid refrigerant pipe which is decided by the actual yield installation requirement.
3) Record the additional refrigerant charge for future maintenance.

(2) Calculation of the Additional Refrigerant Charge
Additional Refrigerant Charge=
(ΣLength of Liquid Pipeφ0.375×54+ΣLength of Liquid Pipeφ0.25×22)-880 The biggest additional refrigerant charge value is 800g. It means that if the calculated value exceed 800g, the additional refrigerant charge takes 800g, while the calculated value less than 800g, the additional refrigerant charge takes the calculated value.
