Helios 8 Light 240 Volt Controller W/ Dual Trigger Cord
The Helios® 6 lighting controller is specifically designed for operation of high intensity discharge (HID) lighting systems. The controller will run your lights for any sequence over a 24 hour period by using the dual 120 Volt relay activation cord set and plugging them into a 24 hour wall timer. This dual trigger timing system allows the grower to run two different timing schedules (i.e. one 12 hour light schedule & one 18 hour light schedule) if desired. It’s like having two separate four(4) light controllers in one! The system can handle up to a maximum of eight (8) 1000 watt HID metal halide or high pressure sodium (HPS) grow lights. This lighting controller provides up to 50 Amps of capacity on a standard 240 volt circuit. The Helios® 6 is built with only the highest quality components and will provide the user with years of trouble free service

Instructions for Operation
1.Must be installed by a certified electrician.
2. DO NOT install this controller by yourself if you DO NOT fully understand these instructions. High Voltage is dangerous!
3.Securely mount your Helios® 6, using the mounting hardware included, to the wall near your grow area and away from any spray/water/mist, etc.
Remove the 7 black screws that attach the front panel of the Helios® 6 to the chassis. Detach front cover and carefully set to the side.
4.Connect your incoming 240 Volt power to the terminal block and torque lug screw to 120 IN LBS, using a 3/16″ allen wrench. Improper torquing may result in loose connections and will void your warranty. Verify that all wiring connections are tight and there are no loose connections.
5.Re-attach front panel to the back chassis using the 7 black screws. Test that the Helios® 6 is functioning properly upon installation. Activate power to controller from panel. Using the left trigger cord, plug into a 120 Volt outlet to engage relay. Take a volt meter and test the 240 Volt power output and verify that you’ve got 240 Volt power to each outlet on left side. Unplug left trigger cord. Using the right trigger cord, plug into a 120 Volt outlet to engage relay. Take a volt meter and test the 240 Volt power output and verify that you’ve got 240 Volt power to each outlet on right side. Unplug right trigger cord. If you’ve got 240 Volt power coming from all outlets, your Helios® 6 is functioning properly. If not, have the Electrician give our Technical Support line a call for assistance.
6.Next, plug your 240 Volt ballasts (Maximum 8,000 Watts) into the outlets on the right and left side of the controller.
7.Adjust your 120 Volt appliance timer to the current time of day. Then set your HID lighting schedule (i.e. 12 hours ON/12 hours OFF). Plug the relay trigger cord sets into the appliance wall timer. Your Helios® 6 will now operate your lights at the pre-set timing schedule.
The ‘trigger cord’ activates and deactivates your light bank. It uses a standard 120 Volt circuit to open and close the high power relay inside the Helios 4 lighting controller. When the trigger cord activates the relay, you will hear a ‘thunk’ sound. This is the relay turning ON your light bank. When the trigger cord defeats the 120 Volt power to the relay, you will hear the ‘thunk’ sound again and your lights will be OFF. To operate your light bank, plug the ‘trigger cord’ into a 120 Volt 24 hour appliance timer (we suggest Apollo 6 or Apollo 7 120V timers) and set your required lighting schedule (normally 18 hours in vegatative stage and 12 hours in flowering stage). Your grow lights will operate based on the ON/OFF settings on the 24 hour timer. See application diagram for more information.
