    climate changer w vfd no controler/board

    ok heres the drill guys just put in a dx4 climate changer intertwined coils in the celing,w condensors on the roof. had 2 problems 1 no board or controler (ah540/541)ordered with ahu, any way to make a standard 24v ac multi stage thermostat feed signals to the vfd (would like 2 speeds out of it at least) can probably do it w a couple of relays and and the vfd dc output but hate to get real creative with a new system just yet. and 2, the old piping was semi hermatic 10t w 7/8 liquid line. we reused this for 2 of the 4 circuits, will this subcool too low or still ok, 60-70 ft lineset. new lineset 1/2 X1 3/8 thanks

    What kind of vfd?

    Usually there's a couple contacts for preset speeds. Set those up in the vfd menu, and wire those terminals to a couple ice cubes off your stat or compressors.

    It'll probably work 'til your board shows up. You might have to fiddle with it.

    Hold on a minute..

    shouldn't you be running the vfd off a duct pressure sensor?
