| Introduction

The HelioNode is an enhancement to the existing Smart Node. It has all the features of Smart Node and additionally, features like light, occupancy, temperature-humidity, and CO2 sensor are built into it.

| UI Navigation

You can navigate the HelioNode UI  using the four navigation buttons provided in the HelioNode as shown below.

Initially, when you switch on the HelioNode the screen displays the room temperature along with the damper percentage with the relay values for the device.

Press the right navigation button to go to the next screen.

| Inputs

The inputs screen is displayed

  • Further press the down navigation button.

More inputs are displayed.

The inputs screen displays the following inputs, the below table lists the inputs available on the screen and the source which populates the same on the screen.

Inputs Source
Rm Temp

You can see the room temperature information received from the sensor/Sensors (in case more than a few sensors are daisy chained) connected to the device.

Note: When an external sensor is connected to the HelioNode for sensing, the Room Temperature from the external temperature sensor, takes precedence over the temperature from the HelioNode onboard sensor, in this field.

And when more than a few external sensors are daisy-chained, the Average temperature value from the sensors is considered in this field.

Humidity

You can view the humidity information received from the sensors connected to the device.

Note: When an external sensor is connected to the HelioNode for sensing, the humidity from the external sensor, takes precedence over the humidity from the HelioNode onboard sensor, in this field.

And when more than a few external sensors are daisy-chained, the Average humidity values from the sensors are considered in this field.

Analog 1 You can see the value captured from the Analog 1 input of the device in a range of 0-10V
Analog 2 You can see the value captured from the Analog 2 input of the device in a range of 0-10V
Therm 1 You can see the values captured from the Thermistor 1 input of the device in Kohm
Therm 2 You can see the value captured from the Thermistor 2 input of the device in Kohm
  • Further press the down navigation button.

The other inputs are displayed.

Further, the inputs screen displays the following inputs, the below table lists the inputs available on the screen and the source which populates the same on the screen.

Inputs Source
Supply

The power supply value populates from the power supply switch provided of 24V AC usually it ranges from 17 V-18V

Light & UVI

The Light and the UVI value populates from the inbuilt light sensor provided.

The light value can be put to test by covering the light sensor and verifying the value change in the light parameter.

CO2 The CO2 value populates from the onboard CO2 sensor provided, usually, it ranges from 400-1200ppm in general conditions
Pressure

The pressure value populates from DPS (Differential pressure sensor) device which is used alongside the HelioNode to calculate the pressure created in the duct.

RSSI The RSSI(Received Signal Strength Indicator) value populates from the 900Mhz mesh network
Lqi The Lqi value populates from the 900Mhz mesh network.

  • Further press the right navigation button.

More Installer options are displayed

mceclip13.png

The installer options are the same as in SmartNode, the below table shows the options available in the installer options screen and the purpose of the options provided.

Options Purpose
Pair with CCU

You can use this option to pair the HelioNode with the CCU

for more information on pairing refer to the article HelioNode Installation

Pair with WTH You can use this option to pair the HelioNode with the wireless temperature and humidity sensor
Enable BLE debug You can use this option to enable debugging.
Change Orientation You can use this option to change the orientation of the display.
Transmission speed You can use this option set the transmission speed
Set Update Frequency You can use this option to set the frequency at which you want the HelioNode to update the information displayed.
Transmission Power You can use this option to modify or set a different transmission speed in dBm.
Factory Reset You can use this option to reset the settings to the settings what the HelioNode had when it was delivered out of the factory.

Note: The installer options can be accessed and modified using the Down navigation button to locate the required option, pressing the right navigation button to access the option, and the up and down navigation buttons to modify options and set it.
