Individual controls possible for a maximum of 64 groups, 64 indoor units.

Controls 64 indoor units divided into 4 zones. (One zone can have up to 16 groups, and one group can have up to 8 units.)

Available controls

ON/OFF, operation mode, fan speed, air flow direction, operation monitoring, alarm monitoring, ventilation, remote controller local operation prohibition, etc.

Available for joint use with a remote controller, an intelligent controller, etc.

The maximum number of connectable system controllers is 10, including other central controllers on the same circuit.

Control of systems without a remote controller and of main/sub systems (a total of up to 2 units) is possible.

Weekly timer function

• 8 programs per day (with ON/OFF/Mode/Temperature/Central control setting items) for 1week (7days) can be set.
• Special holiday settings can ignore the timer operation temporarily while keeping the original timer setting. (Special holiday settings can be removed by the same setting.)

5 types of energy saving functions

Set temperature automatic return / Set temperature range limitation / Off remind / Off timer operation / Demand control timer.

A control mode corresponding to the use condition can be selected from 10 patterns.

A: Operation mode: Central control mode or remote control mode can be selected.
Central control mode: The system controller is used as centralized control device. (Setting from a remote controller can be prohibited by prohibiting local operation from the system controller.)
Remote control mode: The system controller is used as a remote controller. (Setting from the system controller can be prohibited by prohibiting local operation from another central control unit.)

B: Controlled unit number mode: All mode or zone 1, 2, 3, 4 mode can be selected.
All mode: All, zone, or group unit can be selected.
Zone 1, 2, 3, 4 mode: Setting is possible only for the indoor units of zone 1, 2, 3, 4.

Prohibition setting for remote controller operation

In case of joint use with a wireless remote controller, there are limitations for the control mode. Please use only with setting “Permit” and “Prohibit1 (prohibition for ON/OFF)”.

* Contents for Prohibit 1~4 can be modified.

✓ : Operation from the remote controller is possible.
— : Operation from the remote controller is prohibited.
