Flight simulator Ventilation and air conditioning system
SimV+ACTM unit is a "one fits all"
Thanks to CVBM IV (patent pending) modulating technology, the unit's compressor can adapt to a wide range of incoming water temperature as well as a wide range of airflow toward the simulator cockpit.
This means it can be cooled with an optional closed loop fluid cooler or with a central fluid chiller already installed in the field.
In fact, lower the incoming water temperature will be, lower the electricity consumption will be for the same cockpit cooling load. To follow the same idea, lower will be the cockpit cooling load (or airflow), lower will be the electricity consumption.
Moreover, the modulating feature also applies on a variable airflow blower and ensures perfect and constant airflow to each cockpit air outlets, no matter on how much outlets are open or closed.
Here are the specs:
Mains: 400Vac 3Ph, + Neutral... 240Vac 1Ph option is available
24V transformer included for standard thermostat control. "Y" terminal input as per standard HVAC spec for cooling demand. "C" and "R" terminals for thermostat power supply.
Dedicated sheet metal cabinet, 41"x48" footprint, 60" height. Robust construction
Easy maintenance and service access doors.
Soudproofing material used all over the HVAC unit inside making it very quiet.
Caster wheels and leveling pads included.
Recessed electrical and water/refrigerant connection panels
German technology EC Backward inclined blowers; 2 blowers if fast smoke extract option selected, 1 blower if no fast smoke extract option (continously closed loop).
Each blower is controlled in constant static pressure mode at +3.5"H2O for supply and -3.5"H2O for return. Blowers are constantly "ON" when the unit is powered.
Smoke extract option includes 3x blade dampers with Belimo motors and HEPA filter for "dirty" air discharge. Fresh air inlet port and dirty air discharge port are added on unit.
Return and supply air ports are 12" dia. Designed for easy attachment of flexible ducts adapted for full-flight simulator requirements
Variable speed Mitshubishi BLDC compressor. 36 000Btu/Hr max cooling capacity
Carel Drive for compressor speed control.
Electronic expansion valve from Carel
Calorek's proprietary advanced heatpump electronic control with Flight Sim specific firmware.
No freeze system thanks to Calorek's electronic control. The compressor speed is modulating in order to avoid freezing the coil no matter what airflow is passing thorough it.
Choice of water cooled or external condenser unit.
If water cooled, an external fluid cooler is available as an option. It includes the Fluid Pump, Fluid Cooler (Exchanger Coil and Fan), Expansion Tank and Feeder in a single unit for warm climates and two units for sub-zero climates.
If condenser unit option is choosen, customer needs a qualified technician to connect the HVAC unit to the condenser unit. HVAC unit will be precharged with correct amount of refrigerant for 25' length lines to condenser unit. Additional refrigerant may be needed for longer linesets. Service valves provided.
DB9 connector provided for Thermostat connection ("Y", "C", and "R" terminals).
Integrated Smoke Generator Option
"Solutions Viper NT" smoke generator in dedicated compartment. Easy access for servicing (Fluid filling).
Smoke pusher blower included in same compartment.
2" inner diameter smoke piping and fitting concentric in return air port.
DB9 connector provided for "Smoke Gen ON" (Input), "Smoke Gen Ready" (Output), "Smoke Gen Smoke Go" (Input).
Labview based maintenance software can be provided. Used for diagnosis of the machine and air pressure adjustements as per application needs. Easy to use interface. Connect via USB with any laptop. Software will be available for download on our website.
We will provide phone technical support as necessary.
