Online VRF design with Toshiba DesignAirs

Toshiba DesignAirs, VRF

Toshiba Air Conditioning has launched an updated version of its VRF air conditioning design platform, DesignAirs, for use by contractors, designers and consultants. Toshiba Air Conditioning UK is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp.

DesignAirs enables users to create detailed project drawings, including pipework and equipment specifications, for a variety of building types. It now includes a new seasonal performance calculator to simulate the actual performance and running costs of a system using local seasonal temperatures and operating conditions.

Users can also specify different electricity tariffs, in order to estimate running costs under different supply scenarios and produce a report on anticipated running costs and annual CO2 emissions.

The design platform has three-dimensional capabilities that can be used to highlight any potential issues with a design in relation to oil traps and height difference separation. The new DesignAirs system can generate a single page view showing all elements of a system, either as a PDF or an AutoCAD file.

Alongside the introduction of the enhanced DesignAirs, the company has issued updated Building Information Modelling (BIM) software for use with Autodesk Revit, an industry standard BIM platform.
