1)  Pressure in refrigerant circuits is maintained at approximately 2 bar (29 psi), regulated by A/C compressor, even though heat transfer changes and engine speeds vary. However, this applies only within the performance range of the A/C compressor; if the performance limits of the A/C compressor are exceeded, the pressure increases. Refer to → Chapter „Pressures, Checking“.
2)  Within the control range of the A/C compressor, temperature in the refrigerant circuits is maintained, regulated by A/C compressor, even though heat transfer changes and engine speeds vary. However, this applies only within the performance range of the A/C compressor; if the performance limits of the A/C compressor are exceeded, the temperature increases. Refer to → Chapter „Pressures, Checking“.
3)  Measured values for A/C systems with two evaporators
  Note
A/C compressors which do not regulate their performance are switched off by the respective control module via the A/C Compressor Regulator Valve -N280- at an evaporator temperature below 0 °C (32 °F).
In vehicles with A/C Compressor Regulator Valve -N280-, the pressure is modified on the low pressure side by the valve.
