Hi Gentoro,

May i ask when i check out the cooling capacity of daikin system 4 5 ticks system, the nominal is 7.4kw while the max is 10.6 kw which is equivalent to around 34k btu. Base on the max value, does it mean that when i on several aircon simultaneously and exceed the nominal value, the system will continue to drive until the max in order to meet the demand?

my configuration gonna be 24/12/9/9 and im having a difficult time whether to settle for daikin 5 ticks with 25K BTU CU or daikin 3 ticks 34K BTU CU which is meant for system 5.

yes, it will overclocked and go above nominal to hit your demand. 3 ticks give more cooling efficiency which in turn more power used.

If your usage is high and gg which such big config 24/12/9/9 - I will settle for 2 set of daikin MKS50 or MKS65 (a lot more exp).

so that means, i could safely assume base on the datasheet, i would take the max BTU capacity as the basis for my configuration. and yes, unfrotunately, it's gonna be more expensive to have 2 system which im trying to avoid.

I was thinking 3 ticks but does it make sense to go for the upgraded compressor MKS100 instead of MKS80?

i just got the Starmex Sys 4 from Gain City based on this config:
MXY4A28VA, 3xMSYGE10VA,1xMSYGE24VA (24/9/9/9)
according to the sales person, this config can support the 24K BTU and one 9K BTU FCU comfortably at the same time if i am not operating the two FCUs at max (ie super low temp and max fan)
is this correct? or i should upgrade the compressor to 38K BTU instead?
i am comfortable with this arrangement since i find no point wasting electricity turning on 4 FCUs at the same time and I dont see the need either

To DarthGW,

The compressor max is 30k btu at anytime.
So if you on 24k + 9k = 22k + 8k.
If on 3 units will be 18k + 6k + 6k.
4 units, 15k + 5k + 5k + 5k.
All are estimated values based on full load performance of the compressor.

The fan speed of the indoor unit does not affect as much on the compressor load compared to the temperature which plays a bigger part.

Thanks guys. Just curious the diff of class 0 and 1 for armaflex is just the fireproof? Does the quality differs?
