Every indoor unit in the iSERIES system has its own specific features but there are also features common to all units in the range, these are listed here below.
Dynamic Cold Draft, an active protection system preventing the emission of air that is noticeably colder than ambient temperature during heating operation and particularly during defrost stages.
Antifreeze, this protection system prevents the formation of ice on the indoor unit heat exchanger when the system is working in cooling mode and there are particular temperature and humidity conditions.
Temperature settings from +10°C to +32°C both in cooling and heating modes; the units can therefore be used for indoor low ambient temperature applications such as in cellars, server rooms and radio stations… They can also be used to maintain a minimum temperature in spaces that are unused during weekends such as offices and shops, or places that are unused during the week such as holiday homes in the mountains or at the seaside…
iFEEL function, a comparative function that ensures optimum temperature settings based on the values read at the remote control sensor, the sensor in the indoor unit and the resulting ambient temperature stratification conditions, which are always different from one room to another.
Wide range IR receiver, this receives the remote control signal even under difficult conditions. It is equipped with a noise canceller for complete immunity from interference generated by low energy consumption fluorescent bulbs.
Hardware or software addressing of units for recognition on communication bus RS485.
Remote control addressing for the management of one or more grouped indoor units, up to a maximum of four units. This function is useful where several indoor units are situated in a large space (open space offices, hotel reception rooms, restaurants, etc…), and need to be controlled either by one or several remote controls.
Five operating modes: automatic, cool, heat, dehumidify and fan.
Night Function for maximum operating economy during the night without compromising comfort.
High Power Function, when maximum power is required straight away.
Active/passive air filters: all air/air units are equipped with washable mesh filters and can be fitted with an activated charcoal filter; some units are fitted as standard with a titanium dioxide photocatalytic anti-bacterial filter, activated via remote control by invisible dedicated LEDs fitted inside the unit, fully compliant with EU regulations concerning UV emissions.
Intelligent air flap control based on operating mode, which when combined with the iFEEL function offers the maximum in comfort to counter air temperature stratification effects.
Automatic fan (or manual fan) to provide maximum heat (when required) and the right amount of cool, without creating annoying cold air draughts or excessive amounts of hot air.
Timer for programming the operating times of each individual indoor unit, with weekend* and holiday* controls.
Wireless and wired universal remote control for all iSERIESTM indoor units, with multi-function keypad, LCD graphic display, wall mount and wired connection.
Elegant ergonomic interface with discreet micro LEDs that can be deactivated via remote control, particularly useful for those that prefer complete darkness at night.
Protective grilles, which offer the maximum in safety in compliance with standard EN60335. This allows for installation even at low heights where children could otherwise potentially touch moving parts such as fans and motors.
Heat exchangers in high quality copper/aluminium with inorganic hydrophilic aluminium, which does not emit odours and provides top performance in heat exchange output and efficiency.
Plastic materials with high quality looks and functional properties (improved thermal stability). As green as possible thanks to the use of noble acrylics such as PMMA, pure ABS for the parts on view and recycled PS for the internal structures.
Hydrokit with heat exchanger with plates made from AISI316L stainless steel for heat exchange between the refrigerant and water, built-in module for additional electrical heating, automatically controlled by software in three steps, controlled by thermal-magnetic switches that can be deactivated manually, safety thermostats, pressure switch, high performance water pump and water flow rate control device.
Controller for hydrokit, with climatic curve control and control of the various applications of the hydronic circuit (floor, fan coils, radiators, mixed…), with the possibility of separation into areas with different settings.
Wide range of hydronic accessories to suit various different system configurations.
Generation of domestic hot water using the eMix module, the internal unit for the iSERIESTM system, which is able to provide hot water from a thermo-dynamic source all year round. eMixTM will be available during 2013 and it will have a specific document illustrating the functions dedicated to it and the operating mode in connection to the i iSERIES system.
