REMOVAL OF UNIT FROM SKID

SHIPPING DAMAGE

Upon receipt of equipment, the carton should be checked for external signs of shipping damage. The skid must remain attached to the unit until the unit is ready for installation. If damage is found, the receiving party must contact the last carrier immediately, preferably in writing, requesting inspection by the carrier’s agent.

UNIT REMOVAL FROM SKID

WARNING

This unit is heavy and requires more than one person to handle and remove from the skid. Check unit wheels to ensure that wheels are locked before removing from skid. Extreme caution must be taken to prevent injury to personnel and damage to the unit.

It is recommended that the unit not be removed from the skid with a fork lift.

The shipping brackets on each side of the unit must be removed and discarded. See Figure 2-A on Page 5. The return air grille panel can be removed to provide a place to hold the unit. The unit can be slid forward on the skid until the front wheels hang over the edge of the skid. See Figure 2-B. The unit can be tipped forward and slid down the edge of the skid until the front wheels touch the ground. See Figure 2-C. The wheels will not roll. They are shipped from the factory locked so they will not roll. The back of the skid will have to be held down to keep it from tipping up. The skid can be slid out from under the unit. The unit can then be set upright.

HANDLING UNIT AFTER REMOVAL FROM SKID

WARNING

Exercise extreme caution when pushing the unit on the rollers. Handle and push from the lower 1/3 of the unit. Insure that debris is not on the floor where the unit is to be moved on the rollers. Failure to do so could result in the unit tipping over and causing bodily injury and/or damage to the unit.

The unit will have to be turned sideways and removed from the skid to fit through a 36” doorway. If the door height allows, the unit can be slid sideways through the door.

If the unit can not be slid through the door, then the unit will have to be put on a cart and tipped down to roll through the door. It is recommended that an appliance cart by used with a strap to hold the unit on the cart. The wheels of the unit must be locked. If the wheels were allowed to roll, the unit could roll off the cart. The blade of the appliance cart should be slid under the wheels of the unit. See Figure 3. The strap of the appliance cart should be placed around the unit and strapped tightly. Help will be required to tip the unit back onto the cart. The unit can be leaned far enough back to be rolled through the door. Be careful when setting the unit back up to keep from damaging the unit.

REMOVAL OF WALL BRACKET FROM SHIPPING LOCATION

The wall brackets are attached to the back of the unit. Remove and retain the wall brackets for use when attaching the unit to the wall. In those installations where a wall sleeve is required these two wall brackets are to be discarded. A different style bracket is supplied with the sleeve assembly.

GENERAL

The equipment covered in this manual is to be installed by trained, experienced service and installation technicians.

The unit is designed for use with or without duct work. For use without duct work, Plenum Box QPB** is recommended.

These instructions explain the recommended method to install the water source self-contained unit and the electrical wiring connections to the unit.

These instructions and any instructions packaged with any separate equipment required to make up the entire air conditioning system should be carefully read before beginning the installation. Note particularly “Start Procedure” and any tags and/or labels attached to the equipment.

While these instructions are intended as a general recommended guide, they do not supersede any national and/or local codes in any way. Authorities having jurisdiction should be consulted before the installation is made. See Page 1 for information on codes and standards.

Size of unit for a proposed installation should be based on heat loss calculation made according to methods of Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA). The air duct should be installed in accordance with the Standards of the National Fire Protection Systems of Other Than Residence Type, NFPA No. 90A, and Residence Type Warm Air Heating and Air Conditioning Systems, NFPA No. 90B. Where local regulations are at a variance with instructions, installer should adhere to local codes.

MINIMUM INSTALLATION HEIGHT

The minimum installation height of the unit with a Free Blow Plenum is 8 ft. 6 in. This provides enough clearance for the plenum to be removed. See Figure 5.

The minimum installation height for ducted applications is 8 ft. 4-1/2 in. This provides enough clearance to install the duct work. See Figure 6.

DUCT WORK

Any heat pump is more critical of proper operating charge and an adequate duct system than a straight air conditioning unit. All duct work must be properly sized for the design air flow requirement of the equipment. Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) is an excellent guide to proper sizing. All duct work or portions thereof not in the conditioned space should be properly insulated in order to both conserve energy and prevent condensation or moisture damage. When duct runs through unheated spaces, it should be insulated with a minimum of one inch of insulation. Use insulation with a vapor barrier on the outside of the insulation. Flexible joints should be used to connect the duct work to the equipment in order to keep the noise transmission to a minimum.

The QTEC series unit has provision to attach a supply air duct to the top of the unit. Duct connection size is 12 inches x 20 inches. The duct work is field supplied and must be attached in a manner to allow for ease of removal when it becomes necessary to slide the unit out from the wall for service. See Figure 7 for suggested attachment method.

NOTE: Unit cabinet, supply air duct and free blow plenum are approved for “0” clearance to combustible material.

When used with a ducted supply, a QCX Cabinet Extension can be used to conceal the duct work above the unit to the ceiling. This extends 20” above the unit for a total height above the floor of 10’-7/8”. See Optional Accessories, Page 18 for the correct Cabinet Extension model number. The unit is equipped with a variable speed indoor blower motor which increases in speed with an increase in duct static pressure. The unit will therefore deliver proper rated air flow up to the Maximum ESP shown in Table 5. However, for quiet operation of the air system, the duct static should be kept as low as practical, within the guidelines of good duct design.

FILTERS

Two 1 inch throw away filters are supplied with each unit. The filters fit into a fixed rack.

The filters are serviced from the inside of the building . To gain access to the filters release the latch on the circuit breaker door and one 1/4 turn fastener near the bottom of the door. This door is hinged on the left so it will swing open.

The internal filter brackets are adjustable to accommodate 2 inch filters. The tabs for the 1 inch filters must be bent down to allow the 2 inch filters to slide in place.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

MOUNTING THE UNIT

When installing a QC unit near an interior wall on the left side, a minimum of 8 inches is required; 12 inches is preferred.

When installing a QC unit near an interior wall on the right side, a minimum of 12 inches is required as additional space is required to connect the drain.

This clearance is required to allow for the attachment of the unit to the wall mounting brackets and the side trim pieces to the wall.

This unit is to be secured to the wall with the wall mounting brackets provided. The unit itself, the supply duct, and the free blow plenum are suitable for “0” clearance to combustible material.

NOTE: When a wall sleeve is to be used discard the brackets shipped with the heat pump and attache the unit to the sleeve with bracket supplied with the wall sleeve.

Following are the steps for mounting the QC units for reference see Figure 13.

1.Attach wall mounting bracket to the structure wall with field supplied lag bolts. The fluid piping connections are to be within the confines of this bracket. See Figure 1 for cabinet openings and location of fluid coil connection points.

2.Position the unit in front of the wall mounting bracket.

3.Remove the locking screws from the wheels. Refer to Figure 11.

4.Roll the unit up to the wall mounting bracket. The unit must be level from side to side. If any adjustments are necessary, shim up under the rollers with sheets of steel or any substance that is not affected by moisture.

5.Secure the unit to the wall bracket with provided #10 hex head sheet metal screws. There are prepunched holes in the cabinet sides, and the bracket has slotted holes to allow for some misalignment.

6.Position the bottom trim piece to the unit and attach with provided screws (dark colored).

7.Position side trim pieces to the wall and attach with field supplied screws. There are two long and two short pieces supplied. The long pieces are to enclose the gap behind the unit. The short pieces are to fill the gap behind the cabinet extension or the free blow plenum box. They may be cut to suit the ceiling height or overlap the unit side trim. There is sufficient length to trim up to a 10’2” ceiling.

WIRING – MAIN POWER

Refer to the unit rating plate and/or Table 2 for wire sizing information and maximum fuse or “HACR Type” circuit breaker size. Each unit is marked with a “Minimum Circuit Ampacity”. This means that the field wiring used must be sized to carry that amount of current. Depending on the installed KW of electric heat, there may be two field power circuits required. If this is the case, the unit serial plate will so indicate. All models are suitable only for connection with copper wire. Each unit and/or wiring diagram will be marked

“Use Copper Conductors Only”. These instructions must be adhered to. Refer to the National Electrical Code (NEC) for complete current carrying capacity data on the various insulation grades of wiring material. All wiring must conform to NEC and all local codes.

The electrical data lists fuse and wire sizes (75° C copper) for all models, including the most commonly used heater sizes. Also shown are the number of field power circuits required for the various models with heaters.

Manual 2100-416

Page 16

The unit rating plate lists a “Maximum Time Delay Relay Fuse” or “HACR Type” circuit breaker that is to be used with the equipment. The correct size must be used for proper circuit protection, and also to assure that there will be no nuisance tripping due to the momentary high starting current of the compressor motor.

The disconnect access door on this unit may be locked to prevent unauthorized access to the disconnect.

The field wiring connections are located behind the top panel in the circuit breaker panel. The return air panel must be removed first. This panel is equipped with a door switch which shuts the unit down when it is removed. The filter rack must be removed next.

The Climate Control Option D is an electronic, programmable thermostat. The subbase of the thermostat is factory wired to the front panel of the unit. Compatible for use with Energy Recovery Ventilator or Economizer.

GENERAL

This unit is equipped with a variable speed ECM motor. The motor is designed to maintain rated airflow up to the maximum static allowed. It is important that the blower motor plugs are not plugged in or unplugged while the power is on. Failure to remove power prior to unplugging or plugging in the motor could result in motor failure.

WIRING – LOW VOLTAGE WIRING

230/208V, 1 PHASE AND 3 PHASE EQUIPMENT DUAL PRIMARY VOLTAGE TRANSFORMERS

All equipment leaves the factory wired on 240V tap. For 208V operation, reconnect from 240V to 208V tap. The acceptable operating voltage range for the 240 and 208V taps are as noted in Table 3.

START UP

OPTIONAL CFM

These units are shipped from the factory set to operate at the optional CFM level shown in Table 4. This provides lower operating sound levels for non-ducted, free discharge applications. This CFM level will reduce the system capacity performance by approximately 2% at the same energy efficiency.

Rated CFM is required for ducted applications for maximum performance rating. To obtain full CFM on these models, connect jumper wire as follows:

1.Disconnect all power to the unit. Failure to do so may result in damage to the motor.

2.Open hinged return air grille panel

3.Open control panel cover.

4.Add pink jumper wire (provided) to terminal 5 and 6 on the terminal board.

5.Reverse steps to reassemble.

IMPORTANT INSTALLER NOTE

For improved start up performance, wash the indoor coil with dishwashing detergent.

SERVICE HINTS

1.Caution user to maintain clean air filters at all times. Also, not to needlessly close off supply air registers. This may reduce air flow through the system which shortens equipment service life as well as increasing operating costs and noise levels.

2.The wall thermostat perform multiple functions. Be sure that all function switches are correctly set for the desired operating mode before trying to diagnose any reported service problems.

SEQUENCE OF OPERATION

FIRST STAGE COOLING – Circuit R-Y makes the thermostat open the first stage cooling water valve.

SECOND STAGE COOLING – Circuit R-Y2 make the thermostat open the second stage cooling water valve. The G (indoor motor) circuit is automatically completed on any call for cooling operation, or can be energized by manual fan switch on subbase for constant air circulation.

Caution: Second stage cooling must always be energized in conjunction with first stage. If the second state were energized alone, the condensate from the upper part of the coil could be blow off or re-evaporated as it passes down over the dry portion of the coil.

HEATING – A thermostat demand for heating makes R-W1 circuit as well as R-G circuit. This starts the indoor blower as well as turns on the electric heater.

SECOND STAGE HEATING (15 KW only) – Circuit R-W2 energizes the second contactor and brings on the last 5 KW of heat.
