Samsung DVMSOUTH KOREA: Samsung has become the first air conditioning manufacturer to receive verification of its products to the new Eurovent VRF performance mark.

After two years of work the operational manual and rating standards for the new Eurovent VRF certification programme were finally validated in May last year. The South Korean manufacturer is now the first to see 17 of its new DVM System range being validated under the new scheme for a range of parameters including cooling/heating performance, power consumption, electrical efficiency, noise and other features.

The Eurovent Certified Performance mark was introduced in 1994 as an independent verification of product performance. From the beginning the Eurovent certified Performance mark for air conditioners has been one the flagship certification programmes.

The VRF tests are based on the European standard EN 14511 for systems with multiple indoor units and are carried out in European accredited and independent laboratories.

As well as Eurovent certification, Samsung’s DVM range also has a leading energy efficiency rating, as certified by AHRI, Korea Energy Management Corporation and the China Energy Label scheme.

“Were so happy and proud to be the first company in the world to be certified by Eurovent in the system air conditioner sector,” said Boo-Keun Yoon, president and CEO of Consumer Electronics at Samsung Electronics.

“This certification will elevate Samsung to another level and help us become the global leader in the HVAC industry.”
