    V6-i VRF 50/60Hz 4 Startup Control 4.1 Compressor Startup Delay Control In initial startup control, compressor startup is delayed for 12 minutes in order to let the outdoor unit search for the indoor units’ addresses. In restart control (except in oil return operation and defrosting operation), compressor startup is delayed such that a minimum of 7 minutes has elapsed since the compressor stopped, in order to prevent frequent compressor on/off and to equalize the pressure within the refrigerant system.

    V6-i VRF 50/60Hz 7.2 Defrosting Operation In order to recover heating capacity, the defrosting operation is conducted when the outdoor unit heat exchanger is performing as an evaporator. The defrosting operation is controlled according to outdoor ambient temperature, outdoor heat exchanger temperature, indoor heat exchanger temperature and outdoor unit running time. When the outdoor unit is running in defrosting, the digital display on outdoor main PCB will display “df”.
