The MRV-5 Series with Industry-First Wire Free Technology

This innovative wire-free technology allows the indoor units to communicate without the need for hard wiring, saving money on installation costs and allowing constant communication within the system to deliver optimal efficiency. Units are equipped for maximum efficiency, control and performance with DC inverters and EVI compressors, large coil and 2-stage sub cooling circuits to increase performance when demand is high, and non-reversing 4-way valves to avoid temperature fluctuation and component stress. Indoor unit options include wall mount, cassette and medium static and slim duct models with a wide range of capacities from 7K BTU for small conference rooms to 54K BTU units that can cover large open spaces that require constant heating and/or cooling. The MRV-5 Series also has optional branch connector kits compatible with Haier FlexFit models.
