Helios 3D is a premier design software for utility scale PV solar systems for both ground and roof areas. The software features automatic, optimized drop shadow free placement of PV tables making planning large systems virtually seamless. Helios 3D's sophisticated design tools and intuitive workflow allow users to complete days worth of solar mounting project work in hours.
A two-part software system, Helios 3D consists of database management and an AutoCAD-based drafting interface. Helios 3D is a proven software system for utility scale solar planning in Europe and Schletter is the exclusive distributor of Helios 3D in North and South America.
Examples of information that can be managed through the Helios 3D database are:
Helios 3D has state of the art functions that surpass anything available on the market in regards to solar PV layout.
The Helios 3D digital terrain analysis tool creates the ability to rapidly assess any particular tract of land and helps determine if it will be suitable for the proposed project. Recognizing terrain constraints in the initial analysis can save time and money in the planning and construction phases of development. Various forms of data can be used to create Digital Terrain Model (DTM), while terrain information may be imported in a variety of ways. There are several ways to obtain and create a DTM surface for Helios to analyze:
Helios 3D now offers PV Plant Engineering for electrical layouts.
