The units, delivering 1hp (2.5kW) and 1.5hp (3.6kW), complete Toshiba’s light commercial line-up, which now spans from 1hp through to 10hp and offers models across the spectrum in this important sector.
Boasting exceptional efficiency and fully compliant with the ErP Directive (Lot10) threshold for 2015, the new models have a sector-leading operating range, delivering cooling from -15ºC up to 46ºC and can provide heating in ambient conditions as low as -15ºC.
Efficiency is assisted by the use of Toshiba’s power-save function, which enables the user to set the degree of performance covered, between 50 and 100%, in 1% increments.
The new models allow small capacity systems to be fully integrated with VRF systems and BMS controls via a RBC-PCNT30TLE interface.
Outdoor condensing units can be connected to four types of indoor unit: compact four-way cassette, slim duct unit, hi-wall, and ceiling-suspended unit. The most efficient combinations are said to be able to produce a SEER figure of as high as 6.1 and are rated at A++ for energy performance.
The indoor units can also be connected to existing larger outdoor units to provide twin, triple and quad split systems ensuring a solution for all applications.
The lightweight chassis is designed to be easy to transport and install, and is ideal for mounting in areas and on structures where additional loading must be kept to a minimum, such as balconies and low mass walls.
