Helios, thanks to its design of distributed intelligence and the variety of devices available, is a system adaptable to the particular needs of any lighting installation. Let’s see some examples to appreciate the versatility of all configurations.

  1. Buildings or Warehouses
  2. Street Lighting with individual control
  3. Street Lighting  without individual control

1 Buildings or Warehouses

Example scenario where only want to manage the luminaire installation by time schedules and tag actuations.

Example of installation in warehouses

To install the system you only need to configure time schedules in luminaires and associate tags, all just using Helios Config.

In this example no no electrical distribution control panel is required so we don’t need control units. Also, installation monitoring status is not needed so no application server is required, no network device or application Helios Control is used.

2 Street Lighting I

Example scenario where you want to optimize and control the energy consumption from a street lighting area. In this case we need to install the luminaires, central units and the application server.

Street lighting area example 1

We first need to insert all the information of the switchboards and lighting network into the Helios Assigner application. The installation file is inserted into the application server to allow the management of the devices network in Helios Control: consumption reports, alarm lights, alarm boxes, etc.

3 Street Lighting II

Example scenario where you want to audit the energy consumption of the street lighting area but not an individual luminaire control. In this case we install central units and one application server.

Street lighting area example 2

By having a very limited number of devices without direct radio coverage between the server and the central units, there is no ability to form a radio network so that intermediate servers are used to connect devices with the application server.

Data in Helios Assigner control units are inserted to create the installation file to be used in Helios Control to manage consumption and central unit alarms.
