Fujitsu adds high capacity slimlines

UK: Fujitsu Air Conditioning (UK) has extended its range of Airstage J-IIIL Series VRF systems with the introduction of 40kW and 45kW outdoor units.

This increases the number of outdoor models with side discharge fan(s) in the company’s J-Series of standalone heat pumps to 14, with capacities ranging from 12.1kW to 45kW.

The two new side discharge units (AJY126LELAH and AJY144LELAH) have a slim profile with a low height and each is said to have a much smaller footprint than current models with the same output capacities. Compared to Fujitsu’s existing Airstage V-Series 14/16hp products, for example, the new J-IIIL units are 285mm smaller in terms of depth, meaning they take up 45% less space. They are also 23% lighter in weight.

The new models allow up to 40 indoor units to be connected to one external unit and boast a large, 570mm propeller fan and a 15-120rps scroll compressor, ensuring low noise levels during operation.

Maximum refrigerant piping length is 400m.
