A New Way to Manage Multiple VRFs

Solving the problem of controlling multiple VRFs with one central console, giving users more convenience.

The AirTouch 5 user interface cleverly adapts itself to the needs of the installation it is placed in. With the latest developments, it helps to make controlling up to 16 VRF AC units in the same building a sinch, with ease of use and great appearance priorities, but without compromising on control capabilities. Added to this, AirTouch 5 also gives VRF users app control of their multiple systems.

With the clear touch screen interface designed to make things easy coupled with it’s software and processing capabilities behind the scenes, AirTouch 5 helps to make managing numerous VRFs in the same building or residential apartment better looking, easier, more convenient and fun.

What is a VRF Air Conditioner?

VRF stands for Variable Refrigerant Flow, and the technology allows for multiple indoor AC units to run off of the same outdoor system. VRF air conditioning technology is a great solution for cooling or heating large commercial spaces like offices, shopping centres or medical centres, as well as apartments where ducted systems can’t be installed because of ceiling access or other factors.

As there is normally a different indoor unit installed for each room, users can enjoy different set points, modes and fan speeds in them.*

Great News for Architects

“In the past, often a basic control panel would have to be placed in each room, or especially in some commercial settings, additional controllers would be needed for multiple ACs or zones. This can be unsightly, labour intensive but also inconvenient,” says Clinton Lloyd, Category Manager at AirTouch.

“AirTouch 5 on the other hand can be one touch screen to control up to 16 units in the same building, with a clear and friendly interface to make changes or check in on system statuses quickly and easily. Users aren’t limited to a single controller in one place, as an AirTouch console can be placed elsewhere for convenience, and intelligent temperature sensors can be placed in rooms to turn each zone or ac on/off for even more convenience coupled with comfort,” Clinton continues.

For added control though, and great for managing multiple systems in a single building on the go, is the AirTouch App. Just scroll though the systems in the building from anywhere to check in if they are running, and adjust modes, fan speeds or temperatures.

With the app on their smartphone, users can also experience more joy with the control of their ACs from added features like geofencing and temperature alerts, which are all standard to AirTouch 5. The app does not just offer more convenience for users out and about, but also when they are at home. With the app, the remote is always with them around their apartment on their phone.

AirTouch 5 can work with the Building Design

Another stand out feature for architects who want to present something that looks fantastic is that you can customise the style of the controller on the wall.

Choose a different background colour, photo, style of UI, there is a broad range of opportunities for design customisation of the AirTouch panel. Also, end users can enjoy updating it to suit themselves later on. There are more to learn about what AirTouch can do for these systems, read up more here.

*Mode and fan speed settings are dependant on unit capabilities. Variable mode capability is not available with all system setups.
