Orange Heliodon

Accurate sun simulations in a compact space

Orange is a family of automatic heliodon. The scale model is positioned around two axes automatically and accurately. Orange heliodons are very convenient to carry out frequent tests on large and heavy models for which you want to automate the analysis.

The Orange Heliodon family is currently at fifth revision.

Orange heliodon is available in two version:

  • PRO: point to point motion. The most efficient for analysis of sunshadow;
  • LAB: fluent (countouring) motion. The more automatic to make simulation movies;

GraOS is our graphical operating system, working on Windows 7 and greater.

GraOS is able to control nearly all our devices:

  • artificial skies;
  • heliodon and accessories;
  • luxmeter systems.
