     Heliotrope Electronic Control Unit

    The HelioMatic® Electronic Solar Pool Control Series –
    manufactured by Heliotrope, is designed to offer the highest possible
    overall cost effective operation and value - for the ultimate in swimming
    and spa comfort!!!

    One of Energy SuperMarket’s top selling brands, the HelioMatic Series 
    earns a solid 4 star rating in our Consumer Value guide!


                    HelioMatic Electronic Solar Pool Controller

    » Exclusive Heating Control System of the U.S. Summer Olympics!!!

    Efficient, economical, environmentally friendly solar energy, coupled
    with proven precision and reliability of the HelioMatic Control System – 
    the winning team at the U.S. Summer Olympics Games.

    This same winning combination can insure your pool’s solar heating
    operates at peak efficiency; easily, automatically, and pleasurably! 

    Calibrated Control Knob
               The reason HelioMatic was chosen as controller
                           for the U.S. Summer OLYMPICS...

                    It's as easy as setting a THERMOSTAT !!!

    Just set the desired water temperature on the controller panel knob.
    Basically, it’s as straightforward as setting a household thermostat.

    Two precision sensors, one for the pool water, and one simulating
    the solar collector, signal the controller when climate conditions are
    right for the water to be heated.

    If the water temperature is not at the desired setting, the controller
    opens the FloVerter Valve, sending water through the solar collectors,
    gathering warmth and returning to the pool.

    When the desired temperature is reached, the controller automatically
    closes the operating valve.

    Plus, not only will pool water be warm and comfortable every time,
    this Olympic-level system is designed to extend the enjoyment of the
    entire swimming season by providing warm water even under less
    than ideal weather conditions

    All of the Electro Magnetic Capability testing per the latest UL 991 [3rd Edition 10/22/04] standard has been completed with passing results.


    The 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 immediately activate.**

    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.

    Specific Applications: 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.
