New Model Featuring Dual Sensing Control and Ultimate Inverter Compressor Technology Bring the Ultimate in Performance, Reliability and Efficiency
LG Electronics (LG) has announced the release of its brand new MULTI V 5 Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) solution. The latest in the company’s successful MULTI V line, this model pushes boundaries with streamlined functionality that optimizes energy efficiency and maximizes user comfort. The MULTI V 5 is equipped with innovative Dual Sensing Control that monitors temperature and humidity levels to efficiently manage cooling and heating. Equipped with LG’s Ultimate Inverter Compressor and boasting a large capacity for outdoor units, the MULTI V 5 is a powerful climate control solution.
Dual Sensing Control
One of the most impressive features of LG’s MULTI V 5 is its Dual Sensing Control which helps the air conditioning unit evaluate climate conditions down to the smallest detail. Unlike conventional air conditioners which only track temperature, the MULTI V 5 measures both temperature and humidity levels for outdoor and indoor environments. This comprehensive understanding of multiple climate conditions helps the solution determine its parameters in order to achieve optimal energy efficiency and maximum indoor comfort levels.
Efficient systems like Smart Load Control makes it possible to control outdoor unit discharge refrigerant temperature, increasing energy efficiency anywhere from 15 to 31 percent depending on humidity conditions. Typical VRFs normally fluctuate considerably in order to maintain a set indoor temperature, making them highly inefficient. The MULTI V 5’s Dual Sensing Control also has a Comfort Cooling function which maintains operation around the desired temperature, delivering maximum user comfort.
Ultimate Inverter Compressor
The LG MULTI V 5’s new Ultimate Inverter Compressor offers unrivaled efficiency, reliability and durability. Improving on the 15 to 150 Hz operational range of its predecessor, it operates from 10 Hz to 165 Hz. This widened range increases part load efficiency and enhances the MULTI V 5’s ability to quickly reach the desired temperature. The MULTI V 5 features an enhanced bearing system layered with PEEK (Polyetheretherketone) – an advanced material normally used in airplane engines – this efficient infrastructure allows the MULTI V 5 to operate for sustained periods without any oil. In addition, the MULTI V 5’s Smart Oil Management uses sensors to check the compressor’s oil balance in real time, minimizing unnecessary oil recovery operation.
Large Capacity ODU
With an innovative biomimetic fan, 4-sided heat exchanger, and improved compressor performance, the MULTI V 5’s efficiency and capacity have each been enhanced, making it possible for a single ODU to reach 26 HP. Utilizing research from the Seoul National University’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, the engineers behind the MULTI V 5 drew on inspiration from humpback whale flippers when designing the fan. Moreover, the solution’s advanced biomimetic fan significantly increases wind capacity.
Ocean Black Fin
Equipped with LG’s exclusive Ocean Black Fin and Dual Protection – dual layered, double sided coating – the MULTI V 5 is protected from corrosive substances such as salt, sand and other elements brought in by strong sea winds as well as industrial pollution. The black coating of the Ocean Black Fin heat exchanger keeps water from accumulating in order to minimize moisture buildup. This durability enhancement prolongs the product’s lifespan and lowers maintenance costs, paving the way for exceptional, long-lasting performance.
In addition, the unit’s split and delayed defrost technologies – which receive input via the humidity sensor in the Dual Sensing Control – enhance the effectiveness of the Continuous Heating mode by increasing heating capacity and indoor comfort. Continuous Heating reduces unnecessary energy consumption and provides consistent heating in contrast to conventional VRFs which waste energy by stopping and restarting heating supply in order to remove internal condensation. This helps the unit achieve an 11 percent increase in heating operation time per day and a 7 percent reduction in power input.
