Helios – Automatic vehicle location and fleet management system
Helios – is a sophisticated AVL system for fleet management and protection of the vehicle and driver.
Starcom presents a unique combination of stability and cutting edge technical features, making the Helios the most advanced AVL system today for fleet and driver management.
Starcom Systems offers a wide range of AVL solutions, tailored precisely to every customer’s needs and to the market in which they operate.
Every type of Helios device combine the advantages embedded in all of Starcom’s units: accuracy, reliability, stability, sophistication, and constant development. These features position Starcom’s distributors at the forefront of today’s AVL industry.
For complex management needs we created the Helios Advance Plus, which fully meets all requirements for fleet management and allows configuration of complex alerts as well as generating statistical and logistical reports.
For elementary FM and tracking needs, and for price-sensitive markets, we developed the Helios Basic and Helios TT, which include a smaller number of inputs and outputs, and provide practical information about the fleet.

System Stability- High Reliabilty
The Helios device is the most durable and stable AVL system today, ensuring constant communication and an accountable long lasting performance.
Advanced components and modems- Selected Technology
The Helios unit consists of the most advanced components, each carefully tested and chosen to bring together the most sophisticated and stable device for AVL, including cellular modems that are authorized by the majority of leading professional operators in the world. The Helios utilizes the most advanced and sensitive GPS, including AGPS and Glonass.
Worldwide use and operation- Acces from anywhere, track at any time
The Helios is installed in hundreds of thousands of vehicles in more than 50 countries worldwide, implemented in a wide range of usages, starting with security forces vehicles through distribution trucks to leased employees vehicles.
The system can be customized according to the local needs and requirements of each organization, and can be set to comply with the local regulations. The web refined system is localized in 32 languages, and can be accessed from anywhere, using any kind of technological device – tablet, mobile phone or PC.
The Helios system includes detailed maps of the whole world, enabling to localize the work of the operator in every chosen region, for either local or cross- border use, an advantage that can be of great significance for fleet managers who supervise cross- border journeys of vehicles.
Open events generator – Personalized and customized system
The system allows the user to customize the unit to respond to specific events and to generate a wide variety of reports that assist the vehicle management, using Starcom’s web application – Starcom Online.
The system can trigger email or text message alerts either by a single event (such as excessive vehicle speed) or a combination of events (such as excessive speed in a particular area).
The Helios system is an “open” system which can be configured to integrate with other related solutions such as navigation systems or immobilizers.
Reports can be tailored to cover a number of variables such as fuel consumption, working hours, driving violations and vehicles entering or leaving designated areas.
Recordable events include accidents, speeding, unauthorized loading/unloading and alerts when a specified mileage has been exceeded.
OTA firmware upgrade – Technological uniqueness
Each and every parameter, and even the entire firmware of the unit can be programmed OTA (over the air) remotely, enabling to remotely upgrade the unit with new features and settings without the need for removal and re- installation of the unit, thus saving the high expenses, labor force and disabling vehicles for long hours.
Connection to various networks – The freedom to choose
The Helios control unit supports many different communication protocols, including GSM, CDMA, HSDPA, TCP/ IP and SMS, giving you the freedom to choose.
The Helios can also communicate alerts and information to mobile devices and Starcom Control (or any specified control centers).
Large number of inputs and outputs – Maximum convenience
8 Digital Inputs: usually used for Ignition, Emergency, Doors, Arming, and Disarming. Each input can be programmed to be used in order to trigger transmissions under any condition, and to arm or disarm the security system.
3 Analog Inputs: each can be set to work in two different measurement scales. Example usages are external temperature sensors or fuel measurement without a need for external sensor.
4 Digital Outputs: Usually used for Lock, Unlock, Siren, and Immobilizer.
Driver identification in four different ways – A variety of complementary solutions
By using different Dallas iButton, Remote Controls, or Keypad or RF Keypad Codes, the unit sends the code of the current vehicle driver to the center. Used as part of the Complete operational security system .
Built in antenna and accelerometer – All in a box solution
Built-in accelerometer serves as both accident and a harsh braking detector, triggering real time alerts for maximal driver and vehicle protection.
Easy installation – Simply great
Simple installation of 4 basic cables. No drilling. No complex wiring.
