GENERAL INFORMATION

Systems of ventilation, heating and cooler form the functional block providing high comfort at all seasons of the year, under any weather conditions and external temperature.

The cooler of the conditioner cools air and deletes from it moisture.

The filter of cleaning purifies the air arriving outside of dust and soot, and also of pollen and a dispute.

The heater at all operating modes warms up air depending on position of the regulator of temperature. The stream of air can at desire be regulated by means of an obduv.

Functions of the regulator of temperature, the distributor of air and regulvtor of an obduv are similar to functions of the corresponding devices of a heating system and ventilation.

From below from the regulator of an obduv: switches of circulation and conditioner.

By means of the switch cooling (a control lamp of inclusion) joins. Having blown it is carried out with the minimum speed which can be increased.

By means of the switch switching of an ustr-v to the circulating mode (a control lamp of inclusion) is carried out.
At receipt outside of smoke or a smell: to include for a short time
circulation.

The conditioner works only in the range of temperatures when it is necessary: at an external temperature below +4 °C it is automatically disconnected.

Operation of the conditioner

The maximum cooling at a heat and long heating by sunshine

For a short time to open windows quicker to remove heated-up air:

  – to include conditioning;
  – to include circulation;
  – temperature regulator to the left;
  – the regulator of an obduv on whole revolutions;
  – the air distributor on;
  – to open all nozzles of an obduv.

Subsequently to adjust operation of the conditioner according to the opportunities described below.

Normal cooling (when driving in the country and on the highway)

  – to include conditioning;
  – to switch off circulation;
  – temperature regulator to the left;
  – having blown at will;
  – the air distributor on;
  – to open all nozzles of an obduv.

Cooling with difference of temperatures (the head in cold, legs in heat)

  – to include conditioning;
  – to switch off circulation;
  – temperature regulator at will;
  – having blown at will;
  – the air distributor on or;
  – to open nozzles at will.

Temperature regulator in average area: warm air goes to the lower space, and cold – up, warm air arrives from side snuffled, cold – from averages.

Ventilation without cooling of the arriving air

  – to switch off conditioning;
  – to switch off circulation;
  – temperature regulator to the left;
  – having blown at will;
  – the air distributor on;
  – to open nozzles.

Additional having blown in the lower space: the air distributor on.

Heating

  – to switch off conditioning;
  – to switch off circulation;
  – temperature regulator to the right;
  – having blown at will, however not at full capacity;
  – the air distributor on.

For the period of a phase of warming up of a nozzle to close. Then on the need to direct side nozzles to side glasses for defrosting acceleration.

Removal of moisture and hoarfrost from glasses

 – to include conditioning,
for acceleration of an osushka at an external temperature over +4 °C the cooler (compressor) joins;
 – to switch off circulation;
 – temperature regulator to the right;
 – having blown on requirement;
 – the air distributor on or;
 – to close all nozzles.
