The new definition of Smart, Safe & Stable.

The Helio line from Innovative Marine are a new line of aquarium heaters utilizing advanced PTC (positive temperature coefficient) technology to exceed current reef aquarium heater standards for improved safety and reliability. Unlike traditional heating elements that utilize resistance wires to generate heat, the Helio heaters were developed utilizing PTC technology from the aquaculture industry, which relies on solid-state ceramic chips that are programmed to reach a predetermined temperature. Thanks to these smart ceramic chips, the heaters are naturally resistant to overheating, and the PTC smart controller continually communicates with and monitors the heating elements to maintain a stable temperature.



  • Corrosion resistant PTC titanium element
  • Titanium remote sensor
  • Magnetic sensor holder
  • Fast warm up with low surface temperature
  • Solid State Ceramic Chips regulate heat
  • Long Life, energy efficient
  • Audible Alarm


Note: Unlike the rest of the Helio Smart PTC line, the Mini Helio features a Mini Controller, which only has one element plug. The Mini Helio also does not include a Magnetic Aquarium Heater Holder.


Each piece of the HELIO heating system was created to work together. The PTC smart controller has been fitted with a titanium remote temperature sensor in addition to the temperature regulation system built into each heating element, giving you safety in redundancy. Commercial grade titanium heating sheaths and screws prevent corrosion. Quick disconnects for the controller’s temperature sensor and heating element make for easy maintenance and upgradeability.
