    All of the Electro Magnetic Capability testing per the latest UL 991 [3rd Edition10/22/04] standard has been completed with passing results.

    The HelioMatic Control PACKAGE #1 - Individual Components: 

        • HM4000D Controller  3-Way FloVerter Motorized Valve 
        • Solar Roof Sensor  Pool Water Sensor

    The HM4000D unit utilizes the existing pool's circulation pump for solar heat pick-up. It works in conjunction with the FloVerter 12VAC valve, or with other manufacturer's 12VAC valves.

    The FloVerter valve controls pool water circulation by the pool's filtration pump - either through the solar collectors, or bypassing the solar collectors. The HM4000D has the additional feature of being able to be used with either 12 or 24 volt valves.

    Specific Applications: Designed for both residential and light-duty
    commercial pools in the small to mid-size pool heating range when the
    HelioMatic controller only needs a FloVerter Valve, or if a maintenance
    change-out or upgrade is required.

    Note: The unit has a front panel switch which provides for nocturnal pool
    cooling instead of heating. Cooling is used in conjunction with the pool's
    filtration pump being allowed to run during cooler hours of early dawn.

    FloVerter Motorized Valve
    3-Way FloVerter Motorized Valve
    Model: FV-2.0

    The FloVerter 12VAC valve works
    in conjunction with either HelioMatic
    electronic controller model.

    When the controller is signaled by the
    sensors, and calls for solar heat pick-up,
    the FloVerter valve immediately activates.
    The opening "diverter" valve then directs
    the flow of circulation through the solar
    collectors using the pool's filtration pump.

    The FloVerter valve is a 12VAC 2" valve, 
    utilizes permanent magnetic synchronous
    motors, and has an extremely low CV.* 

    Technical Specifications: The FloVerter is a non-positive seal
    valve with a small hole located in the diverter, which allows the collector
    to drain when the system is turned off. This draining prevents collector
    damage due to cold weather freeze-ups.

    FloVerter's Unique Features:
     Low profile design utilizes two synchronous motors to direct flow 
     Constructed using twin O-Rings that provide superior service
     Diverter designed with curved and fluted channel for reduced pressure 
     Unibody valve/actuator require no assembly; actuator easily replaced 
     Manual control over-ride always available using sure-grip handle 
    Color-coded wire terminals make connecting to controller a breeze!
    Non-positive seal for freeze protection; positive seal available
    The FloVerter never needs lubrication, and may be mounted in any
    position except upside down

    Note: For a positive solar shutdown, or service to collectors during
    pump operation cycle, an isolation ball or gate valve must be used on
    the feed line for positive shut off.

    *The extremely low Constant Velocity factor is due to the unique
    curved and directed flow channel inside the diverter. 

    [For additional information see FloVerter Technical Notes below]


    Pool Water Sensor
    Pool Water Sensor
    Model: IS-1.0-10K

    The IS-1.0 sensor is constructed
    entirely of solid stainless steel,
    inserted into a drilled hole in
    the 1 1/2" or 2" plumbing pipe, 
    and easily and quickly fastened 
    in place using a stainless steel
    hose clamp.

    It is then wired into the system,
    and signals the controller unit
    with readings on the pool water

    The sensor seals to the pipe
    with a long-lasting O-ring.

    Technical Specifications: The extra durability the virtually
    indestructible stainless steel sensor brings to the system truly 
    guarantees years of corrosion resistant performance. 


    Solar Roof Sensor
    Solar Roof Sensor
    Model: AS2-10K
    The AS-2-10 is an all-aluminum
    sensor block, designed to both
    quickly and precisely determine
    solar radiation [sun's rays], and
    then simulate the internal water
    temperature of the collector panels
    caused by the solar absorption. 

    The sensor instantly signals
    the controller unit, which sends
    the required command to the
    3-Way FloVerter Valve.

    Technical Specifications:
     The greater surface area of the
    AS-2-10, combined with the superior conductivity characteristics 
    of aluminum enable the sensor to detect the sun's rays sooner, 
    plus detect when the right amount of solar energy is available.

    It also reacts to cloudy conditions and the setting sun more
    rapidly than other sensors on the market today, thus creating
    greater heat flow precisely during the critical "solar window"
    period and avoiding heat loss by not circulating when heat could
    be lost through reverse process - resulting in a much warmer pool,
    and a longer more pleasurable swimming experience!

        Why Solar Controls dramatically enhance performance

    A Solar Control Unit needs to be included as an integral component
    of any solar system on an inground pool, or large above ground pool. 

    Solar Controls are essential for maximizing the solar performance of
    any pool solar systems - even if the geographical location is in a
    consistently high solar effectiveness area. 

    By accurately monitoring the available solar radiation and the pool's
    temperature, a Solar Control Unit directs the solar system to function
    only when it can add heat to the pool, resulting in capturing the most
    solar/cost savings benefit out of any solar system. 

    Solar Controls also offer the additional benefit of thermostatic control,
    so the temperature can simply be set and effortlessly maintained. 
    Just set it and forget it! 

    Using a Solar Control assures high-limit protection, restricting the
    solar system from heating the pool/spa beyond the set temperature,
    a nice safety precaution! The GL-235 Control is designed not to let
    pool/spa water exceed 102°F, unlikely for a pool but very possible
    for a spa. 

    The GL-235's thermostatic control can also be operated at night to
    cool the pool if it is in an area where pools become too warm from the
    sun on their own during the summer season. 


        Logic of necessity for Solar Pool Control Package

    Pools heated by solar energy need to have an accurate controller
    for two primary reasons.

    Initially, it is vital for proper performance to maximize the utilization
    of the solar heat available by circulating water through the collectors
    when solar rays can be absorbed - and not circulating when heat
    could be lost through reverse process.

    The second reason for an accurate controller is to allow the pool
    owner/operator to automatically adjust and maintain the maximum
    temperature desired.

    This turn-key controller package is designed for a straightforward
    installation, dependable operation, and easy serviceability. 

    A solar pool heating system can dramatically reduce or eliminate
    the rising monthly gas or electric power costs by heating your pool
    with free, abundant energy from the sun.

    Several recent studies using sophisticated monitored sites provided
    data that proved automatic controls were definitely beneficial.

    And installing a Goldline do-it-yourself package results in an immediate
    and dramatic reduction or elimination of pool heating costs!


    Function: HelioMatic Package controls entire solar pool heating system
    Benefits: Maximizes your swimming pleasure!

    Product Applications:
    The HelioMatic Electronic Solar Pool Controller Package

    FloVerter Technical Notes: Installation is simplified as one
    port is easily identified with a "FLOW TO COLLECTOR" symbol. 

    An adequate length of three wire color coded cable is permanently
    attached to the FloVerter valve and these three wires connect to the
    color identified terminals on the HelioMatic controller. There is never
    a need to check flow direction as an error is impossible if the same
    colors are connected together.

    The FloVerter is a non-positive seal valve and the diverter has
    a small hole, which allows the collector to drain when the system is off.
    This draining prevents collector damage due to freeze ups.

    Note: For a positive solar shutdown, or service to collectors during
    pump operation cycle, an isolation ball or gate valve must be used on
    the feed line for positive shut off.
