INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS

We recommend to always use the newest versions of heliOS and heliX firmware.
Please update first your heliX device with the latest firmware version before installing a new version of heliOS.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

Supported Operating System I Windows 10

heliOS requires the .NET 5 Desktop Runtime. 
heliOS requires access to a postgreSQL database.

heliX FIRMWARE UPDATE

Note: The installation of a new heliX firmware version must be performed from a computer which is connected to the heliX device.

Note: Skip this step if you are only interested in updating the heliOS version on a computer which is not used to control the heliX device.

  1. Ensure that the heliX device is switched on and connected to the control PC (directly or via network).
  2. Download the above listed version of the heliX firmware. We recommend to always use the newest version.
  3. Run the EXE installer on the control PC and follow the setup steps. You can find the IP address of your heliX in heliOS under Devices.
    After approx. 10 minutes the heliX will be restarted and ready to use.

INSTALLATION OF heliOS

Note: If heliOS is installed for the first time on a computer you need to first install the .NET 5 Desktop Runtime (see Installation of Microsoft .NET 5) and a PostgreSQL database (see Installation and set up of postgreSQL database).

 

  1. Download the above listed version of heliOS. We recommend to always use the newest version.
  2. Run the MSI installer and follow the setup steps.
  3. The first time you open heliOS on a computer you need to enter your license key (Settings → License).
    Copy and paste the license key into the intended input field and confirm.
  4. In addition to 3, the first time you are using heliOS you need to enter your database access data (Settings → Database).
  5. Now heliOS is ready to use and can, for example, be connected to your heliX device.

IMPORT OF heliOS METHODS

  1. Download the above listed heliOS methods.
  2. Unzip the downloaded file once. The unzipped folder contains a range of zipped heliOS methods. Do not unzip these files.
  3. Open heliOS and go to “Methods”.
  4. Click on “Import” in the top menu and select one or several heliOS methods (ZIP files) from the unzipped folder.
  5. Click on “Open”. Now your data base is equipped with the newest heliOS methods.

INSTALLATION OF MICROSOFT .NET 5

Note: heliOS requires the .NET 5 Desktop Runtime on your Windows operating system. If already installed you can skip this step.

 

  1. Download the .Net 5 Desktop Runtime from the link below. Select a version under “Run desktop apps” that matches the architecture of your Windows OS, either 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64). https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet/current/runtime
  2. Run the EXE installer and follow the setup steps.
  3. After the installation process has finished you are ready to install heliOS.

INSTALLATION AND SET UP OF A postgreSQL DATABASE

Note: heliOS requires a postgreSQL database either on a server in your local network or on your Windows operating system. If you do not have access to a network-based postgreSQL database you need to install one on your local computer. If already installed you can skip this step.

  1. Download postgreSQL from the link below. Select version 12.8 for Windows x86-64.
