Daikin Applied Launches New Heat Pump Technology For
Cost-Effective Heating And Cooling In All Environmental
SmartSource® Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS), its next
generation of heat pump heating technology that enables
efficient and cost-effective heating and cooling in all
conditions using 100 percent of fresh, outside air. The new
unit features exclusive SmartBoost Heat Technology™, which
allows for air as cold as 0 degrees Fahrenheit to enter
without any pre-heating, all while achieving 49 percent
higher than ASHRAE 90.1-2016 minimum efficiency.
"Striking the right balance between maintaining fresh, clean
air throughout a building—and doing so cost-effectively—is
no simple task, but it's increasingly important today as we
think about how to achieve healthy indoor environments,"
said Alan Youker, Daikin Applied Product Manager. "The
SmartSource Dedicated Outdoor Air System is a new technology
for facility managers seeking a reliable and tech-forward
way to ensuring optimal indoor heating and cooling with
DOAS taps a water source heat pump's hot gas reheat coil in
addition to the unit's primary DX coil. The resulting
heating efficiencies—up to 5.1 ISCOP2 per AHRI
920-2020—coupled with the latest advancements in
electronically commutated motors and industry-leading
shaftless blower technology help ensure premium performance.
Other key features of the new SmartSource DOAS include:
- Multi-stage, uneven compressor tandem that provides
eight stages of heating and cooling control, ranging from
100 percent to 30 percent operating capacity.
Programmable options for either constant or variable airflow
control, ranging from 70 to 200 percent of nominal airflow,
and external static pressures over 2 inches achieved at
nominal unit airflow.
Incorporation of Daikin's new, BACnet-enabled MicroTech
controller, which marries advanced unit control, built-in
control logic and smart safety features with a user-friendly
interface. The controller automatically selects between
heating, cooling or dehumidification modes of operation, and
its dynamic control can achieve discharge air temperature
accuracy within one degree under steady conditions.
SmartSource DOAS is available today.
