French term or phrase: Le split RATV se met parfois en alarme
I don't know wha the "split RATV" refers to. I've seen the word "split" used in air-conditioning systems- is it this? Cannot find what RATV stands for -acronym or Company name. A big gallic shrug here. Help!

The context is not a great help: This "split RATV"comes under the section on "Split" -that's all that's in the headline and the term above is below it. The whole document is testing the compliance/non-compliance of these systems. Below the sentence in question is simply the compliance/non compliance tick boxes and recommendations tick boxes.

"Le split" is for sure jargon, could be the inside unit, the outside one or both, here is what it is but the customer should enlight the matter, "RATV" is a mysterious acronym here
