A Complete Temperature Control System
The ultimate duo for precise aquarium temperature control. Crafted with titanium, the heating element is designed for longevity and safety. The Helio Controller ensures consistent temperatures by automatically regulating power to the heater, so your aquatic friends always enjoy a stable environment. Easy to set up, user-friendly, and reliable. It's time to give your aquarium the premium care it deserves.
The Helio Universal Aquarium Heater Controller
A safe, stable, and smart heater controller solution. The Helio controller comes with a titanium temperature sensor so that it can actively monitor your aquarium’s water temperature. If the temperature rises above the high temp. set point, an audible alarm will sound and power will be cut to the heating elements. Similarly, if the temperature falls below the minimum temp. set point, an audible alarm will also sound. In addition, the Helio has alerts for out of water detection to protect your tank inhabitants from wild temperature swings should the sensor be removed from the aquarium.
The Helio Universal Aquarium Heater Controller features two output plugs, so an additional heater can be added to this system, up to a combined 1000 watts.
Note: If your tank has a sump or is an all-in-one, do not place the temperature sensor or heating element in the return chamber as this increases the risk of exposure to air.
The BRS Titanium Heating Element
In our pursuit of a reliable heating element that addresses common issues with other hobbyist heaters, we've separated the controller from the heater to focus solely on the task of maintaining tank warmth. Fully submersible, each heater can be positioned precisely without compromise.
Compared to glass heaters, titanium heaters are incredibly durable, avoiding shattering in your aquarium and conducting heat more efficiently. Glass heaters often fail due to seal issues, leading to corrosion and potential hazards. Titanium heating elements eliminate these risks with their shatterproof bodies and welded end caps, ensuring lifelong operation.
