With One Fits All Compressor Unit

The Ventilation and Air Conditioning System
Simvac SR

Thanks to CVBM IV modulating technology, the unit's compressor can adapt to a wide range of incoming water temperatures, as well as a wide range of airflows 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, the lower the incoming water temperature is, the lower the electricity consumption will be for the same cockpit cooling load. To follow the same idea, the lower the cockpit cooling load is (or airflow), the lower the electricity consumption will be.

Moreover, the modulating feature also applies to a variable airflow blower and ensures perfect and constant airflow to each cockpit air outlet, no matter how many outlets are open or closed.

Simvac SR Ventilation System

Ventilation System

EC Backward inclined blowers; 2 blowers if fast smoke extract option selected, 1 blower if no fast smoke extract option (continuously 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.

Refrigeration System

Variable speed Mitshubishi BLDC compressor. 36 000Btu/Hr max cooling capacity.

Carel Drive for compressor speed control

Electronic expansion valve from Carel

Simvac's proprietary advanced heatpump electronic control with Flight Sim specific firmware

No freeze system thanks to Calorek's electronic control. The compressor speed is modulated 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 a condenser unit option is chosen, customers need a qualified technician to connect the HVAC unit to the condenser unit. The HVAC unit will be precharged with the correct amount of refrigerant for 25' length lines to the condenser unit. Additional refrigerant may be needed for longer linesets. Service valves provided.

DB9 connector provided for Thermostat connection ("Y", "C", and "R" terminals)

Simvac SR Refrigiration System
Simvac SR Smoke Generation System

Integrated Smoke Generated Option

Look 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)
