Open the control program (ArduinoCode Helios2013) to set the time and location of the Heliostat, and to upload the program onto the Arduino. 1) Choose whether you want Helios to act like a solar panel and track the sun (set the variable heliostat=0) or a heliostat (set the variable heliostat=1) a. Overall: It's an OK software but very expensive at $ USD/month. We're a tanning salon that's been in business for over 35 years. We've used Helios for the last 17 years. The first five years of using the software only costed us $ in total, then the following 5 years costed an addition $. That's a total of $ for 10 years of usage. HELIOS develops advanced turnkey software solutions which work stably for decades. Our standard solutions are used world-wide at businesses of any scale. There's only one way to innovate: The right way. HELIOS Software was born in a flash of genius in the late 1980s. We are the energy analytics company. Helios is a Greek Sun God, who travels in golden chariot across the sky in the pursuit of discovering new stars. Helios IoT Systems is Pune (India) based technology company co-founded by four experienced executives from energy and software sectors/industry. We develop solutions for the renewables energy sector & our expertise is on improving the solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant operations and performance via next-generation data analytics products.

Design in 3D environment

Incorporating 3D detail in solar design enables more accurate and comprehensive analysis of solar projects that avoid foreseeable obstacles in later stages of design and development.

Helios 3d solar software

Project in just 80 minutes

Instead of a full working week, it takes just 80 minutes for an engineer to create a version of a solar energy park project. In one day you can create multiple options and choose the most efficient one.


Runs on AutoCAD

We built our tool as a plugin for the most popular CAD engineering platform – Autodesk AutoCAD, radically slashing on-boarding time. The team can be up-and-running in a matter of hours.

About Us

HELIOS 3D is a professional planning tools for utility scale PV plants.
It allows shadow free placement of PV racks on a digital terrain at any geographical position and at any given date or time.
The workflow supports all phases of the project process :
Project Development : Analysis and evaluation of the terrain, rate of yield
Project Layout : Structuring of the terrain, positioning of PV racks, optimize positioning for maximum yield
Project Engineering : Electric layout, Bill of material, list of GPS coordinates, cable lists.
