The i-BX Hydronic Air to Water Chiller and Heat Pump Series features superior efficiency, flexible design and advanced control. The range is ideal for residential or small commercial applications.
Both the i-BX and i-BX-N models come in a packaged monobloc, ready-to-install arrangement. All hydraulic components such as the EC pump, expansion tank, safety valve, air bleed valve and flow switch are already included in the unit for simple application in any plant space.
Synonymous with Mitsubishi Electric’s quality and reliability for high performance, the i-BX Range boasts high seasonal efficiency at partial loads thanks to the modulation of the compressor with DC inverter technology. Therefore, the unit provides the exact thermal power in correspondence with the actual needs of the building and reduces energy consumption.
With the benefit of variable fan speeds, energy usage in the system is lowered. The dynamic control of the water supply temperature according to the outdoor air temperature greatly increases the comfort and energy efficiency of the system.
Furthermore, the i-BX Series features condensation control for an extended operating range.
Noise levels are also decreased by modulating the fan speed and frequency of the compressor.
The compressor is also installed on rubber anti-vibration mounts and is soundproofed by special sound-absorbing material.
The EEV enables the refrigerant flow to be optimised, effective temperature control and fast regulation which results in high efficiencies. In addition to this, the wide control capacity allows the compressors to always operate in optimal conditions and expand its operating limits.
Featuring advanced water pump technology with an EC motor, commissioning is simplified and reduced operating costs can be realised.
The i-BX Range uses NadiSystem Controls to effectively monitor the plant components. This advanced system ensures the easy integration between different heating sources based on availability, performance and costs of their use – favouring renewable sources.
The auxiliary sources are used to meet the building’s needs at low outdoor temperatures by integrating the heating capacity of the heat pump.
This system also features special functions for perfect customisation such as the ability to set the water setpoint with fixed or dynamic value with the climatic curve, anti-freeze protection depending of the water temperature and outside air temperature, and weekly programming up to 6 timeslots.
In addition to this, digital input for Night Mode and the remote connectivity to BMS systems via serial card accessories is also enabled.
With the benefit of NadiSystem Cascade Control, up to four units of the same power can be connected in cascade to make up 36.5kW – 146kW capacity where the thermal requirements are high.
The configuration is managed in master / slave mode, with the master unit that takes care of processing the information and transmits it to the slave units.
