1. Introduction
1-1. Purpose of Xpress
Xpress is a selection software for VRV and CMSQ systems.
Xpress helps your quick selection for quotation with easy operation.
V6.0.0 Uses the New Selection Procedure (NSP): indoor capacity is kept and all
losses are recalculated to the outdoor units capacity.

1-2. Limitations on Selection


Xpress has some limitations on selection.
1)

The capacity correction factors corresponding to height difference between


outdoor unit and indoor unit are simplified. They are used depending on the
relative position of the outdoor units such as Higher, Same level, or
Lower.

2)

Though you can input the exact height of the outdoor units, the value is used
only for checking the limitation of the height difference.

3)

Capacities are not completely equal to Engineering Databook.


The Xpress uses an approximation formula made from the capacity table to
calculate capacity. Differences should be less than 1%.

4)

Design temperature can be inputted outside the scope of the capacity table
range. Data input only has a range check. The actual check of the
temperature to be within the capacity table range is done during the selection.
Values outside this capacity table range result in an error message on the
outdoor unit.

5)

The sensible capacity is calculated from the actual total capacity, the bypass
factor and the fan airflow at high speed. Therefore, this calculated capacity
may differ slightly from the sensible capacity value of the databook.

6)

The order of indoor units is determined by the piping layout. Therefore, the
wiring diagram does not always correspond to the field (actual) diagram.
However, they can be set equal by moving indoor units up and down in the
tree view.

7)

The order of outdoor units does not affect piping and wiring diagrams.
If you change the order of outdoor units, the order will be changed on the
report file.

8)

Some options are not displayed on the [Piping] tab and the [Wiring] tab.

9)

We strongly advise to use the function Enter individual piping lengths


manually instead of relying on the automated piping length calculation by
filling out the Equivalent piping length and First branch to indoor units.
The automated calculation may result in a rough estimation. Therefore, the
correction of the capacity towards the outdoor unit and the size up of the
piping diameters may not be accurate. Also, in this case there is no
calculation of the additional refrigerant charge.

1-3. Live update


The VRV Xpress software is equipped with a Live Update feature. Thanks to
this feature, the end user can decide any time to check if a new version of the
software is available, and if so, to download and install it.
Live Update Procedure:
From within the software, through the welcome screen (first screen you see
when starting the program), or through the about... menu, you can check for
more recent versions that are available:
Availability:
Live Update is available on all software programs that are available on
the Mantra II server.
Note that a major update e.g. V5 to V6 is not within the live update scheme and
requires a new install of the program.
If you are still using an older version of the software, we recommend to
download and install the latest version.
Never rename the executable file name of the program, otherwise
the Live-Update function will NOT work !

Technical cooling is only available for the Heat Recovery Range.
When the "technical cooling" function is activated, the system can cool a room
with an operation range starting at -20C (instead of the default -5C). A
typical application is the cooling of a server room. The only slightly
disadvantageous consequence is that the noise of the BS-box is a bit louder
when technical cooling is activated.
Note:
[Select Options] button (7) is unavailable because an indoor unit has not
been determined yet. After connecting to the outdoor unit, the indoor unit is
determined and the button will be available.
Note: The lower ambient conditions will reduce the available cooling capacity.

To move to the last position, it takes 2


steps.
First move the outdoor unit that you want
to move to the last position onto the last
outdoor unit.
Then move up the last outdoor unit.
Note:
This change is only applied in the
[Outdoor Units] tab page.
The outdoor units order in other tab
pages dont change unless you delete
one.

6-9. Change the Order of Indoor Units


The order of indoor units is very important for the piping layout.
Define the order in consideration of the actual indoor units grouping and piping
layout.
To define the order, recommended basic rules are:
- Create indoor units groups (e.g. units for each room)
- Change the order of groups based on the distance from the outdoor unit
(from the farthest group to the nearest group)
- Organize the indoor units in the group, by number (name)

39

In the case of the next figure, recommended order is :


3-1

3-2

2-1

2-2

2-3

1-1

farthest group

1-1

1-2

1-2

1-3

nearest group

See section 7-3 for reference.

To change the order of the indoor


units, drag and drop indoor units in
the system list window.
To insert Unit 1 before Unit 2, drop
Unit 1 onto Unit 2.
To move to the last position, drop
the indoor unit onto the outdoor unit.
Changing the order of indoor units
will affect the [piping] and [wiring]
diagrams.

Note:
Changing the order in the
[Outdoor Units] tab page has no
relation with the order of indoor
units on the [Indoor Units] tab page.
The order should be defined
according to actual layout.

7-4. Printing large piping diagrams


When the piping diagram is printed in the report, it is always printed shrink to fit
page. For VRV systems with many indoor units, this results in a report where
the names of the units are no longer readable. Therefore, it is possible to cut the
diagram into several parts and label each part. Each part is then printed on
another page in the report, with its label in the sub diagram title.
The cuts need to be defined in the
[Piping] tab. You can define a cut by
clicking on the intermediate pipe part
where you want to cut the diagram.
Then right click and select Enter
Subdiagram label.
The screen Enter Subdiagram Label
appears, which allows to enter a label
for the subdiagram. Suppose we enter
A.

After entering the label, click OK.


The label A appears on the
intermediate pipe that will be cut.

Enter the other cuts in the same way.


It is advisable to create the .rtf-output
to see the result. If you are satisfied
with the result, save your project. The
labels are stored within the project.

54

In order to print the complete piping diagram again in the report, all the labels need
to be removed. To remove a label, click on the intermediate pipe that is labeled.
Right click and select Enter Subdiagram Label. The Enter Subdiagram Label
screen appears, with the label you have entered. Delete the label and click OK.
The label is now removed. Repeat this procedure for each label that was defined.
Afterwards, save your project to remove the labels permanently.

maximum 64 addressed indoors
maximum 10 outdoor systems (an outdoor system can consist out of several modules )
So it is possible to have 35 addressed and 93 unaddressed indoor units on one F1/F2 circuit
Important Remarks:
In case the user selects PPD option (available on iTouch, iManager or BACnet)
then the max. indoor limitation is 64 (all indoors need to be addressed)
LON Gateway SNVT limitation, see 9-9
EKEXV and Hydrobox cannot be connected to F1/F2
In case the user selects ACNSS (Airnet) option, then max. indoor limitation is 127
(address 2 till 128) is not considered in the software!!

9-4. This example:


We added several systems with a varying number of indoor units. The whole site will be managed
by an Intelligent Manager, whilst some part of the building is controlled by one Intelligent Controller
and the other part of the building/site by another ITC in a so-called Control Group

9-5. Step 1

Drag the outdoor units (one by one) to the Control Groups zone

The total number of outdoor units (8) and indoor units (170) in the control group is indicated

9-6. Step 2

Drag the controller

Drag and drop the controller to


the specific controller zone.
Note that two ITC will be required.

Possibly, also a global controller is required?

or

Number of indoor
units connected to
one outdoor unit

To control the 170 indoor units


two ITC and one DIII Net Plus Adaptor
Will be required.

Notice that the logic numbering of the outdoor units is changed


The program will look for the best / most economical way to connect
a maximum of 64 indoor units to one Intelligent Touch Controller.
In this example, the outdoor units 2, 5, 3, 7 and 4 are connected to the first ITC.
Outdoor unit 2 has 34 indoor units; outdoor unit 5 has 30 indoor units.
This thus totals 64, the maximum for one ITC.
The DIII-adaptor will take care of the indoors connected to outdoors 3, 7 and 4

The second Intelligent Touch Controller will take care of the indoors that are connected
through the F1/F2 wiring to outdoor units 6 (16 indoors) and 8 (7 indoors)
Possibly, the whole site is also managed by one Intelligent manager. (global controller)

61

The selection software will thus automatically


Add units to a centralized controller.
To do so, it is very likely that the combinations will not
correspond to the physical location of the outdoor units.
Consequently the F1/F2 OUT cabling will need to be
routed according the sequence decided by the program.
This is not always possible or is not always convenient
Thereto, a split can be made

62

9-8. Add a split in the central control

1) Select the unit above which


you want to add the split in
the system

2) Click on Add Split

Using this possibility, we refuse the


optimum result proposed by the
software
This results into the need for two ITC
but furthermore also two DIII
adaptors !

You can move a unit to above the split


or to below the Split by selecting the unit
and then use the arrow buttons.

To remove the split:


Select the split by clicking on it and then Remove Split

9-11. Preferences screen


In the advances tab of the preferences screen
the default setting is that all indoor units receive
a group address.
Even if you would decide that indoor units work
as master/slave on one remote controller, every
indoor should still get its group address.
If you would decide otherwise, Proportional
Power Distribution (PPD) and possible error
codes for non-addressed indoors cannot be
allocated to the particular indoor unit.
If you would deselect this item, the following indoor
listing would be seen. If you select a single unit from
that list, you can individually edit it (double click)
to make the group address choice.
