The HELIO Smart Controller is a reliable midrange choice between commercial and hobby-grade heater controllers. It houses a circuit board processor that continually communicates with a titanium sensor to ensure consistent temperature accuracy. When a temperature difference is detected, it immediately cuts power to your heating device(s) and emits an audio alarm. The controller has two power lines to control two heating elements at once, up to a combined total of 1000 watts. If the heating element(s) of your choosing have their own controlling systems, you can create up to four independent temperature readings to provide safety in redundancy.

Compared to glass heaters, titanium heaters are virtually unbreakable and will never shatter in your aquarium and can conduct heat through the body much quicker, ultimately making them more efficient. In most cases when a glass heater fails, the failure-prone seals will go bad allowing water into the heater body and can start to corrode the contents inside the heater causing water contamination and possible electric shock, or the body will just shatter leaving glass particles throughout your aquarium. Titanium heating elements take both of those risks and virtually eliminate them by having a shatterproof body along with welded end caps for a life-time of operation.

It says that it's a redundant heater. so if one of the elements goes out, i'm assuming that the secondary would still function provided the failure is not due to the main controller. Is this correct?
additionally, what's your warranty on the product?
Question by: Ryan on Feb 2, 2023, 8:09 AM
Thanks for the question! The purpose of the two heaters is the allow for that redundancy safety net correct. Our warranty is 3 years for our heaters!

I recently purchased a 500 gallon aquarium what would you recommend?
Question by: Alan on Aug 13, 2022, 11:46 AM
Thanks for the question! For a tank of this size we'd recommend getting two bundles, either one of the 600 watt bundles with a 1200W bundle or two of the 1200W Bundles. If you are in a part of the US that gets super cold, the latter might be the better option to keep up in the winter months. Let us know if we can help with anything else!

I have a 125 gallon duel overflow. Can these heaters be put inside each overflow? Thanks
Question by: Kevin Gary on Jul 15, 2022, 9:06 PM
Thanks for the question! These heaters can be put in the overflows assuming they aren't going to be touching the plumbing directly as you want water around the element for adequate heat exchange. Please let us know if we can help with anything else!
