From the E2 bookThe most common way E2 achieves split mode in an
air-cooled condenser with single-speed fans is to lock OFF
50% of the total number of fans. You may choose to lock
OFF all odd-numbered fans, even-numbered fans, the first
half of all fans, or the last half of all fans.
Split mode can also be achieved by activating a valve
that bypasses a portion of the tubing in the condenser manifold.
The resulting decrease in surface area results in
anyone ever seen a split condenser just shut off half the fans? Ive only seen the split valve setup that reduces 50%. +lock out the fans on the half split side.
