    mini marine ac AC/DC

    We found a compact Mini 4200 BTU, available in 115V, 230V 12V or 24V DC, at the Fort Lauderdale boat show, after running several hours the Luhrs 40 open salon dropped from 92F to 76F !! we were told that this unit was equipped with a 20 years rated CuNi condenser, reversing valve , hP switch, freeze protection, Supper high velocity high static pressure blower, stainless base, supper quiet R134a compressor, color display, vimar compatible bezel, life time warranty on the compressor, anodizer evaporator, sliding filter, for just $1750 list, was operating out of a 1000W portable Honda gen set in econo mode!! the pump was DC with a PM motor, the fan was also DC, the total Amps 2.8A including the pump on 115V was very impressive.
    The test on 12V DC came out also the same: the system was able to switch over from AC to DC automatically, on AC power was charging our batteries, 48A smart charger, we love that product, too bad they were sold out and we were only able to buy one for our demo boat.

    The most important is reliability, most old units used to last 15 years or more, now most last only 5, here is why:


    Durability
    : B30 coils not B10 like most CuNi 70/30 compared to 90/10.. B30 will last at least 10 years, B10 5 years
    Efficiency: to create an efficient unit long lasting anti-mold/ bacteria Copper Fins and copper tubes, size of the tubes, compressor, size of the condenser to minimize the water flow and avoid calcium buildup, control digital time delay, auto mode fan, high static blower pressure.
    Quiet: By design some units no not create too much vibrations or compressor noises, make sure you ask for demonstrations or visit Youtube videos.
    Ease of install; compact rectangular configuration, rotatable blower, smallest foot print!!
    Best integration to electronics: must be reliable, non loss memory, time delay compressor starting, low water flow, low air flow, freezing protection, low voltage, high voltage. network cable plugin, remote air return sensor.
    Price of unit: not only the lowest, but available on Amazon, Ebay, Online Stores with excellent reviews
    Warranty: No question asked, technician service call to your vessel, not just parts, live time compressor.
    Availability of parts: All parts must be in stock.
    The Ideal international Voltage: 230 units are 50/60HZ compatible.

    Few Images of Self contained units.. most are efficient, quiet, but not all are equipped with anti-micrbial copper coils, nor B30 CuNi raw water cool coils.
