200 Watt (Single Element) Helio PTC Smart Heater – Innovative Marine



In stock

Certified (#AQ0358037) Department of Agriculture


Innovative Marine’s new Helio range of aquarium heaters uses cutting-edge PTC (positive temperature coefficient) technology to go above and above the requirements for reef aquarium heaters for increased safety and dependability. The Helio heaters were created using PTC technology from the aquaculture sector, which depends on solid-state ceramic chips that are controlled to attain a specific temperature, as opposed to conventional heating components that use resistance wires to generate heat. The heaters are inherently resistant to overheating because of these intelligent ceramic chips, and the PTC smart controller constantly interacts with and keeps an eye on the heating components to keep the temperature consistent.

The entire Helio heating system was designed to function as a whole. A titanium remote temperature sensor and two power lines for heating elements have been added to the PTC smart controller. The built-in temperature regulating systems of each heating element provide safety, as does the controller’s redundant temperature sensor. Another degree of protection is also given to the system if twin heating elements are used. Commercial-grade titanium screws and heating sheaths keep corrosion at bay. Holders for rare earth magnetic heating elements enable for ideal water flow. The controller’s temperature sensors and heating components include quick disconnects, making maintenance and upgrading simple.
