VRF Controls

There are several options available to ensure proper system control of your VRF System, including independent and integrated solutions.

Controls Options for Trane® / Mitsubishi Electric VRF

Trane® / Mitsubishi Electric VRF Systems are now compatible with Tracer® SC+ controls to manage an entire system or building. Tracer® SC+ allows you to streamline facility management and provides a flexible solution for superior building automation control. The Tracer SC+ Integration is compatible with any Trane® / Mitsubishi Electric or Mitsubishi Electric N-Gen CITY MULTI VRF unit that has TE-200/TE-50/TW-50 or AE-200/AE-50/EW-50 unit controls.

The Simple MA is low-cost solution to provide indoor unit control to the occupant. It is intended for manual control of the equipment and does not support a local scheduling feature. The indoor unit can be controlled via a schedule residing in a central controller or a BAS when the central controller confi gured as a BACnet™ gateway.

The Backlit MA remote controller that has a large backlit LCD with full and basic display modes. It supports P-Series rotation (requires PAC-SF83MA-E adapter), advanced cassette operations, 3D i-See sensor functions, and daylight savings time. The remote controller also supports a daily and weekly schedule functions.2) to connect to a BAS (requires a license).

The Touch MA is a full color touchscreen remote controller with Bluetooth® support, which enables occupant and contractor access with smartphones to control and confi gure the unit including scheduling functions. The Touch MA has a large selection of background colors and information display options that allow the device to be customized for any environment. The device can also display a custom logo image and supports multiple languages. The features of this device makes it ideal for use in the hospitality industry.

The Smart ME controller is a remote controller designed to control Trane®/Mitsubishi Electric air conditioning units. The Smart ME controller features functionality for basic operation and monitoring of air conditioning units including schedule. The controller includes four built-in sensors (temperature, humidity, occupancy, brightness). The built-in occupancy sensor detects vacancy in a specifi c zone enabling the controller to uses its internal function to reduce energy-consumption (when enabled).

The TW-50 is the entry-level into the centralized controller and can network up to 50 indoor units. It can be connected via BACnet (LAN2) to a BAS (which requires a license). It does not have a display and requires the initial setting tool to setup. It is very versatile and can be used as an expansion of a site with an TE-200, standalone without the TE-200, or as part of an apportionment site with an TE-200 which is not utilizing the M-Net (the protocol used to communicate within the terminal system) link.

The TE-200 is the most capable of the centralized controllers in that it is required to enable features such as apportionment and tenant billing. It also come with a display and is able to support BACnet (LAN2) to connect to a BAS (requires a license).

The TE-50 is used to network up to 50 indoor units as an expansion of a site with an TE-200. However, it cannot be used for standalone applications. It does include a display for site requiring multiple displays (TE-200 also includes a display). It can be connected via BACnet® (LAN2) to a BAS (requires a license). Integration via BACnet or Modbus® enables advanced capabilities such as system level applications to control both an LEV kit and the VRF equipment.
