Heliotrope Controller HM-5000D Installation
All of the Electro Magnetic Capability testing per the
latest UL 991 [3rd Edition 10/22/04] standard has been completed with passing
HM5000D 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 HM5000D operates with
either 12 or 24 volt valves and will also operate a separate pump that is
dedicated to solar circulation only. The pump can be sized up to 1HP with
120VAC and 2HP with 240VAC.
The FloVerter valve controls pool
water circulation by the pool's filtration
pump - either through the solar
collectors, or bypassing the solar collectors.
The HM5000D has a built in time delay* for use during pool sweep. This
feature prevents pool sweep malfunction due to the introduction of air into its
pumped line. When the HM5000D calls for solar heat pick up, the valve will
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 the
early dawn, cooler hours.
Designed for both residential and medium-duty
commercial pools in the small to mid-size pool heating range when the
HelioMatic controller needs a FloVerter Valve, plus operate a separate
pump that is dedicated to solar circulation only.
**There is an
approx. 8 minute delay before the pump turns on.
When using a valve system
only, the pool sweep pump may be wired
to the HM5000D output [must be the
same voltage as the pool filtration
pump]. This method of pool sweep hook
up will allow the pool sweep to
operate only when the solar collection is
taking place and the piping
system will be purged of any air. *This
function can be disabled.
