HELIOS - The VAV Digital Diffuser Powered by Ambient Light

Titus has participated in the variable air volume (VAV) diffuser market for a number of years now. We currently offer two great options; our T3SQ-4 Thermal version and T3SQ-2 Digital version. They both have features that make them great for their particular application. The benefit of the thermal T3SQ-4 is that it requires no power, making it ideal for applications where energy is the focus. The benefit of the digital T3SQ-2 is you get the great accuracy you normally get with digital controls as well as the added benefit of individual comfort control.

Helios - the ambient-light powered digital vav diffuser

Introducing HELIOS, the new line of energy-harvesting VAV diffusers that creates a new standard of individual comfort and control for indoor environments. Powered by the same ambient energy-harvesting technology as our popular EOS diffusers, HELIOS is easy to install, requiring no special wiring or ductwork. That saves money!

Wherever individual indoor comfort is needed, HELIOS is a perfect solution. It’s easy to install. Each individual unit uses a unique digital logic system so it can operate on a narrow temperature band, giving more unique zones and much greater user control. Gone the days of inter-office thermostat feuds.

HELIOS solves many problems for engineers and contractors. The individual comfort functionality addresses LEED EQ Credit 6.2, while the fact that units require no outside electrical power means complying with LEED EA Credit 1, too.
HELIOS is perfect for retrofits, particularly those that include areas with comfort issues. If your project involves working in a LEED-certified building, then HELIOS is well worth taking a close look at.
The HELIOS brings new meaning to the term "stand-alone". For the installer, and the individual placing the order, the best feature for this diffuser is no complicated wiring or cabling to count or keep track of. No longer do you have to concern yourself with whether or not you have enough, or the correct, cables. The distance from the power supply is not an issue anymore because the power source is the light in the room. No longer will you have to drag cables across ceiling plenums and down walls or do any time-consuming trouble shooting because you suspect a cable is bad. Like our T3SQ, the HELIOS still has various neck sizes to accommodate different size ducts. It also has a neck heater for supplemental heat. Look for this innovative product to be available in the Fall of 2017.
