The Sky Air series is the ideal solution for retail and light commercial applications
Designed for use in shops, restaurants and small offices, Daikin Sky Air provides a comfortable environment for building occupants all year round and offers building owners substantial operating efficiencies to help minimise operating costs. Our new Sky Air series has been engineered as an R22 retrofit solution. With a sizeable number of existing R22 systems in the field reaching the end of the useful operating life, the timely release of our Sky Air series provides a simplified replacement solution which is also cost effective.
Daikin's Sky Air is available in 4 types with a range of capacities to suit a variety of commercial applications. Ranging from discrete round flow cassettes that maintain room aesthetic to sophisticated wall mounted units with wide angle airflow and superior air distribution. For even more power, Daikin's Sky Air ceiling suspended indoor unit can keep cool even the largest of spaces without compromising wall space.
Premium Ceiling Mounted Cassette: 5kW, 6kW, 7.1kW, 10kW, 12.5kW & 14kW
Standard Ceiling Mounted Cassette: 7.1kW, 10kW, 12.5kW & 13.6kW
Ceiling Suspended: 5.8kW, 9.2kW, 11.2kW & 13.2kW
Wall Mounted: 7.1kW & 10kW
Round Flow Cassette
360° airflow with improved temperature distribution
|Conventional Flow||Round Flow|
|Doesn't circulate air evenly||Circulates air more evenly for superior comfort|
Adapts easily to virtually any installation space
Because air flows out from corner outlets not the centre, comfort spreads widely throughout an environment. With up to 23 flow patterns, airflow can be configured to suit virtually any space.

Inverter Technology for Enhanced Comfort
An air conditioning system with an inverter continuously adjusts its heating and cooling output in response to temperature changes in the room. Once the set temperature is reached, a Daikin Inverter continuously adjusts its power output to ensure that it is constantly maintained, without the large temperature fluctuations of a non-inverter system.
Non inverter air conditioners must cycle on and off repeatedly, which can cause large room temperature fluctuations and wastes energy.
|Soft starter is unnecessary, making electrical installation work much simpler.|
|At startup, an inverter raises frequency smoothly, eliminating the starting current spike.|
Compact And Light Weight
Easy, centralized installation from a modular design.
All RZQ models offer a standard 320mm unit depth, and weigh under 108kg.
Optimised efficiency and fully MEPS Compliant.
The key measure of an air conditioners efficiency, COP is calculated by dividing a system’s capacity (kW) by it’s power consumption (kW). The larger the resulting COP value, the more energy efficient.

3. Anechoic chamber conversion value, measured according to JIS parameters and criteria. Values may vary due to ambient conditions.
4. Value when cooling. Value will differ when heating.
Sky Air is managed from a user friendly remote control with an easy-to-read LCD display, enabling users to manage various system control configurations with ease, as well as control multiple indoor units from a single remote.

Daikin’s focus on innovation has led to the development of cutting edge technologies for the provision of quiet, efficient air conditioned comfort, and a high efficiency compressor helps Daikin achieve an exceptionally high COP.
Reluctance DC Scroll Compressor
Overheating losses are reduced by pressurising the area around the motor, resulting in energy saving performance in conjunction with other features:
High Thrust Mechanism
By introducing high pressure oil, the reactive force from the fixed scroll is added to the internal force, reducing thrust losses and resulting in improved efficiency and suppressed noise levels.
Powerful magnets: Neodymium magnets are 10 times more powerful than conventional ferrite magnets. Their use in Daikin’s DC motor delivers high torque from a compact compressor.
Stronger materials: Casing strength has been increased by boosting the internal dome pressure.
Optimal refrigerant configuration: Revised spiral shape and volume ratio result in the optimal refrigerant layout for more efficient operation.
Smooth Air Inlet Bell Mouth and Aero Spiral Fan
These two features work together to significantly reduce noise. Bell mouth intake guides reduce turbulence from fan suction, while the Aero Spiral Fan incorporates blade edges designed for smooth air flow, reducing turbulence even further.
Escaping eddies are sucked in by the bent blade edges, reducing overall turbulence.
DC Fan Motor
By utilising high power permanent magnets instead of the induced magnetism of conventional AC motors, Daikin’s DC motor can deliver significantly higher motor efficiency, especially at low speeds.
Note: Data based on studies conducted under controlled conditions in Daikin laboratories.
Super Aero Grille
Daikin’s Super Aero Grilles have also been designed for high air flow volume. Aero grilles not only look good, but help make your air conditioner efficient and reduce operating noise levels.
R22 Retrofit Technology
With the use of corrosion resistant electronic expansion valve, acid neutralisers and an improved compressor, the RZQS-AV/Y1 condensers are able to be retrofitted to existing R22 piping.
* Strict conditions must be adhered to, please refer to the installation manual and Engineering Data Book for further details including pipe sizes (if pipes are to be re-used)
