SAFETY WARNING
HEALTH AND SAFETY AT WORK
Safety of Installation and Maintenance Personnel
In the interests of health and safety, when installing, using or servicing this equipment
the following instructions must be noted and adhered to:
(i)
Only skilled or instructed personnel with relevant technical knowledge and
experience, who are also familiar with the safety procedures required when
dealing with modern electrical/electronic equipment, are to be allowed to use
and/or work on the equipment. All work shall be performed in accordance with
the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.
(ii) Such personnel must take heed of all relevant notes, cautions and warnings in
this Handbook and any other Document or Handbook associated with the
equipment including, but not restricted to, the following:
(a) The equipment must be correctly connected to the specified incoming power
supply.
(b) The equipment must be disconnected / isolated from the incoming power
supply before removing any protective covers or working on any part from
which the protective covers have been removed.
(c) Mains voltages are present in LED and LED (NLM) aspects. Before any
maintenance work is carried out, the mains supply to the aspect must be
isolated / switched off.
(d) WARNING – the earth connections within the CLS with LMF signal head are
‘daisy-chained’ from the Red to Amber and then Green LMF Unit. When
removing either a Red or Amber LMF unit the aspects below will not be
earthed and therefore should not be touched if the controller is powered on.
Ensure that the Earth connections are reconnected after any remedial work
has been carried out.
(e) WARNING – The CLS (ELV) aspects must only be connected to ELV
controllers or else irreparable damage will be caused to the CLS unit.
(f) These signals heads must only be connected to a signal controller that
provides a readily accessible disconnect device (e.g. double pole isolator,
controller switch or master switch), to allow the signal heads to be isolated.
(g) All equipment of conductive material installed in these signal heads must be
bonded to earth e.g. transformers, tactile power supplies etc, unless double
insulated or access to it is restricted to use of a tool.
(h) Where Siemens signal head transformers are used a fuse not exceeding 16
amps must protect the wiring at the controller.
(i) Only trained / competent persons should work on this equipment. This
includes persons who are employed to change bulbs. All wiring has basic
insulation and should be regarded as hazardous, i.e. hazardous voltages are
accessible if the insulation is damaged.
(j) Surfaces within the signal get hot, e.g. lamp, lens and reflector. Therefore
care should be taken when working in such areas.

(k) Any power tools must be regularly inspected and tested.
(l) Any ladders used must be inspected before use to ensure they are sound
and not damaged.
(m)When using a ladder, before climbing it, ensure that it is erected properly and
is not liable to collapse or move. If using a ladder near a carriageway ensure
that the area is properly coned and signed.
(n) Any personnel working on site must wear the appropriate protective clothing,
e.g. reflective vests, etc.
Safety of Road Users
It is important that all personnel are aware of the dangers to road users that
could arise during repair and maintenance of traffic control equipment.
Ensure that the junction area is coned and signed as necessary to warn
motorists and pedestrians of any dangers and to help protect the personnel
working on the site.
Whilst repairing signals which are in an "all-out" condition, care must be taken to
ensure that no spurious signals are lit during testing which could mislead drivers
or pedestrians. Particular care is required where pedestrian audible devices are
installed, to ensure that no false indications are given during, for example, cable
testing. Personnel should also ensure the safety of pedestrians, especially
children, who may come into contact with parts of the signal poles.
Warning:Helios CLS signals are designed and proven to work with the
monitoring and signal switching circuits of Siemens Traffic Solutions
controller products. Siemens are unable to guarantee their operation
with third party supplied traffic control products, and cannot accept
liability in this respect.
In particular the Lamp Monitor Facility (LMF), fitted to monitor the
operation of individual signals and remove the signal load (switch off)
under fault conditions, may operate inadvertently and extinguish the
signal due to the nature of supplies / lamp switching circuits of third
party controllers.
It is strongly recommended that a separate neutral return (or ground
return in ELV systems) is provided for each green signal. See section
2.3.7 for full detail.

SIGNALS AND POLES
2.1 General
The Helios range of traffic signals has been developed to give optimum clarity,
reliability and longevity with a pleasing appearance.
It incorporates newly developed lens form and masking patterns, which ensure
that the signal is extremely clear and easy to see in all conditions.
There are tungsten halogen and LED aspects, which may be mixed in one signal
head. For example, the traffic signal at a pedestrian crossing could have red and
amber halogen aspects with a green LED aspect, since the green would be on
most of the time.
CLS with LMF, CLS (NLM) and LED (NLM) aspects should NOT be mixed in a
signal head with tungsten halogen and LED aspects as the visible switching on
and off of a CLS with LMF, CLS (NLM) and LED (NLM) aspect is instantaneous.
The CLS (NLM) and LED (NLM) is not compatible with the STC Controller lamp
monitoring and should be driven from a separate output if the tungsten halogen
lamps, CLS with LMF and/or LED are required to be monitored.
NLM LED signals can be monitored with the Retrofit LV controllers but the
current capability for Halogen signals is reduced.
CLS ELV aspects should ONLY be connected to Siemens ST900 (ELV) and
ST750 (ELV) controllers as the supply voltage to an aspect is 48V. The CLS ELV
is compatible with the lamp monitoring facility of the ST900 (ELV) and ST750
(ELV) controllers, with each aspect having a visible switching on and off which is
instantaneous. NOTE – The CLS ELV does not utilise a LMF Unit.
Within the ELV HELIOS family are LED regulatory signs and a TRAM indicator
The design incorporates a sacrificial cap that is designed to break on impact,
absorbing part of the force and protecting the signal head from major damage.

HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
Figure 2 – Helios TRAM indicator front view
The basic three-aspect lantern assembly is constructed on a modular principle.
Each aspect is self-contained and consists of one of the following:
Halogen Option
A high intensity tungsten halogen lamp and lamp-holder fitted into a reflector
assembly, a red, amber or green coloured lens and a lamp transformer fitted with
sufficient cable on its input to reach the pole cap wherever the lantern is mounted
on the pole.
LED Option
An LED board is fitted behind a clear lens and connected to a PSU/inductor
assembly for each aspect. The LEDs are linked in a number of strings around the
board, connected so that if a string fails it does not leave a dark area. The
inductor continually measures the output current of the board and if that should
fall below 80%, the fuse blows and a fault is sent to the controller.
LED (NLM) Option
An LED board is fitted behind a clear lens and connected to a dual winding
transformer. The LEDs are linked in a number of strings around the board,
connected so that if a string fails it does not leave a dark area. This option does
not allow any Lamp Monitoring.
CLS with LMF Option
The Central Light Source (CLS) is fitted behind a clear lens and is connected to
the Lamp Monitoring Facility assembly for each aspect. The CLS Unit is a sealed
unit that contain a number of high intensity LEDs. There are three different types
of CLS units, a Red, an Amber and a Green. The LMF unit measures the output
current of the CLS unit and if that should fall below 80%, the fuse blows and a
fault is detected by the controller. The LMF unit is connected to the controller
phase output.
CLS (NLM) OPTION
The Central Light Source (CLS) is fitted behind a clear lens and is connected
directly to the controller phase output. The CLS Unit is a sealed unit that contain
a number of high intensity LEDs. There are three different types of CLS units, a
Red, an Amber and a Green. This option may be monitored by the ST800, 900
700 and 750 retrofit controller facilities .
667/HB/30000/000

HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
CLS ELV OPTION
The Central Light Source (CLS) is fitted behind a clear lens and is connected
directly to the ST900 (ELV) or ST750 (ELV) controller phase output. The output
from the controller is 48V (bright) with the controller capable of performing Lamp
Monitoring of each aspect. The CLS ELV unit contains a number of high intensity
LEDs. There are two different types of CLS ELV units, each type has a Red,
Amber and a Green variant.

HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
WARNING – The CLS ELV OPTION CAN ONLY BE USED WITH SIEMENS
ST900 (ELV) and ST750 (ELV) CONTROLLERS.
ELV TRAM indicator OPTION
This ELV Helios unit is designed specifically for use with light rail and TRAMS.
The Light colour is white and the aspects take the form of a bar of discrete lights.
The central dot is normally constantly illuminated to indicate the optic as on. The
same LED driver is used so the profile for monitoring purposes is the same as
other ELV HELIOS optical units. If the unit becomes faulty no attempt should be
made to replace individual drivers within the optic, the whole sub assembly must
be replaced. More information see Appendix E
Helios all types
The aspects are “clipped” to each other. Holes in the mouldings provide a
passage between aspects for the cables. Each moulding contains drill-start
indentations to allow for cable conduit, AGD detector sockets, solar cell, etc.
Figure 5 – Helios side view
The door to each aspect is fixed by two sliding clips on either side, enabling left
or right opening and easy removal of the door. As an anti-vandal measure,
screws may hold the door clips shut.
Hoods and their fittings will also be supplied but need to be attached to the doors
prior to installation. Helios has its own moulded hood but may use most existing
louvred and tunnelled hoods, although some may need to be drilled.
If a green arrow, box sign aspect or four-aspect lantern assembly is specified,
the extra module or modules required can be added to the basic signal head in
combinations as shown in section 2.6. Fittings to secure each module to the
basic lantern will be supplied with each single aspect.
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 19 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
The halogen, CLS with LMF, CLS (NLM) and CLS ELV green arrow may have a
green arrow mask placed in a number of positions in 22.5 increments. The LED
and LED (NLM) options can have up (ahead) or left and right green arrows
PCB’s fitted as standard (these utilise sub equipment green LED PCBs) along
with a green arrow mask, but to have a green arrow in any other position, a fully
equipped green LED PCB assembly is required along with a green arrow mask.
The ELV TRAM indicator uses the same housing as other units within the
HELIOS family and can be clipped onto standard aspects or used stand alone as
required. There is no room inside the housing however to fit any ancillary
equipment. The information below is therefore not applicable to the TRAM
indicator module.
Various items may be added to the basic unit. They are assembled to bosses
moulded into the box. These are:
Tactile unit power supplies from Radix and Sedgwell
Additional 50 VA transformers for AGD drive, low voltage wait, etc.
Additional terminal blocks, e.g. STCL controller terminal, HI pole cap terminal
and MD 12-way brown blocks.
Audio drive kit.
Fixing positions for these items are shown in Figure 96.
Positions for fitting overhead detector sockets are provided in recesses – three to
each side. These recesses may also be used for the side box mounted cable
conduit. See Figure and Figure .
Solar cell bosses are located on the top of the module.
Helios modular signals are compatible with existing pole drillings.
Note: Fibre optic arrows cannot be fitted to Helios signs. The new type of lens
and mask renders fibre optics unnecessary and the 200 mm arrow takes
the place of the old fibre optic.
2.1.1 Installation at a new site
Where there are no existing signals to be replaced, it is possible to specify the
combination of modules required and have them delivered in a largely preassembled state.
This method is suitable where the STS drawing is available.
2.1.2 Upgrading an existing site
Helios signals are a significant improvement on the “Mellor” and “HITS” type of
signals. Due to the visual differences, it is not recommended that different types
be mixed on the same signal pole.
Sub-assemblies are available to expand a signal head, e.g. to add a side box. It
is important to ensure that the correct backing boards (e.g. four-in-line), hoods
and brackets are called for.

2.2.2 Torque Settings
The recommended torque settings are as follows:
Plas-Tech 25 screws – 0.8 Nm (These are factory set and should not need
adjusting, setting or testing).
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 21 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
M10 screws and bolts – 20 Nm
As signal heads rely on the security of their mounting fixings these fixings must
be torqued up and the recommended procedure for this is found in appendix D.
2.2.3 Signal Head packaging
Helios modular signals are supplied boxed in two forms:
The three aspect box can contain a one-, two- or three-aspect head with
attached brackets with the backing boards loose in the box. Hoods and other
fixings are supplied in a separate box. Backing boards for a four in line assembly
are attached to the outside of the box.
Figure 6, Figure 7, Figure 8 and Figure 9 show typical “as delivered” internal
layouts for three-aspect heads.

Figure 9 – Three Aspect CLS with LMF Internal Fitting
The single aspect box will contain a single module with its side box mounting kit
or the four-in-line fixing kit, and all the hoods and fixings for the assembly.
All these elements should be assembled on the ground prior to fixing to the pole.
Lanterns are assembled in accordance with the requirements of the STS for
primary and secondary signals.
Assembly and attachment of side boxes are described in section 2.7.
2.2.4 Optical Units
Helios only has 200 mm aspects with the exception of some regulatory signs that
may be notionally 300 mm (actual size approximately 270 mm). The Mellor lens
is not interchangeable with the Helios lens.
200 mm Aspects for Vehicle, Pedestrian and Green Arrow Signals
2.2.4.1
Halogen
A pre-focused 12 V 50 W Tungsten Halogen lamp is mounted in a parabolic
reflector fitted behind a specially designed medium wide-angle lens of selfcoloured acrylic material. Rear access is provided to the lamp holder to facilitate
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 24 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
lamp changing without exposing the reflector to the elements and possible
surface damage.
The lens is screened with a specially designed mask, to reduce the phantom
effect.
The lamp voltage is derived from a small step-down transformer, one per signal
aspect mounted in the lamp body.
2.2.4.2
LED and LED (NLM)
The 247 pre-focussed LEDs on the standard red, amber and green aspects are
mounted on a PCB that is held at a set distance from a specially designed
medium wide angle lens made of clear acrylic material. The LEDs have the
correct colour wavelength, intensity and viewing angle to achieve the specified
colour, brightness and medium wide beam.
The lens is screened with a specially designed mask to reduce the phantom
effect.
Rear access is provided to the PCB to allow it to be replaced easily. Note that
mains voltages are present in LED aspects and the supply to the aspect must be
isolated or switched off before any work is carried out.
The supply voltages to the LED PCB are derived from a small switch mode PSU
mounted in the aspect case and powered from the respective controller output.
The supply voltages to the LED (NLM) PCB are derived from a dual winding
transformer mounted in the aspect case and powered from the respective
controller 230v phase output.
2.2.4.3
CLS with LMF and CLS (NLM)
A pre-focussed CLS unit is held in position at a set distance from a specially
designed medium wide angle lens made of clear acrylic material. The CLS is a
sealed unit which is available in Red, Amber and Green and is designed to
achieve the specified colour and brightness output.
The lens is screened with a specially designed mask to reduce the phantom
effect.
The 230v supply voltage for the CLS with LMF is derived from the LMF unit. The
LMF unit monitors the load current of the CLS unit and is powered from the
respective controllers 230v phase output.
The 230v supply voltage for the CLS (NLM) is derived from the respective
controller 230v phase output.
2.2.4.4
CLS ELV
A pre-focussed CLS ELV unit is held in position at a set distance from a specially
designed medium wide angle lens made of clear acrylic material. The CLS ELV
is available in Red, Amber and Green and is designed to achieve the specified
colour and brightness output.
The lens is screened with a specially designed mask to reduce the phantom
effect.
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 25 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
The 48V supply voltage for the CLS ELV is derived from the ST900 (ELV) or
ST750 (ELV) controller phase outputs. The Controller phase driver PCBs monitor
the load current of the CLS ELV unit.
2.2.4.5
LV Regulatory Signs
Two 230 mm (9”) 6 W fluorescent tubes are mounted in front of a metal reflector.
The tubes are connected in such a way as to provide protection against total
signal failure.
The lens is formed from a flat acrylic sheet upon which any of the mandatory
signs may be printed in full colour. Most regulatory signs are delivered with the
lenses fitted into the door of the module using a mastic bead sealant. Mandatory
arrow signs come as a kit with separate sealant to allow fitting on site to
customer requirements.
2.2.4.6
ELV Regulatory Signs
Two 6 LED arrays are mounted onto a plate along with a control module and
connection terminal block. This ELV Module (667/1/33510/000) is then mounted
into a body using 3 off M4 x 10mm Plastech 25 pan head pozi screws. The
required door/lens is fitted to the body.

Pole length required = (Height to amber C/L + 505 mm + planting depth)
Pole length required = (Height to green C/L+ 835 mm + planting depth)
Pole length required = (Clearance Height + 1065 mm + planting depth)
Therefore, if the height of the green C/L is to be 2.5 m, the pole needs to be at
least 2.5 m + 0.84 m + 0.61 m = 3.95 m.

2.3.3 Cranked and Formed Poles at Toucan crossings
Where cranked or formed poles are used at Toucan crossings, the 4.32 m pole is
recommended. This has been specially designed to avoid the possibility of
cyclists injuring themselves on the bend in the standard length poles.
These poles have a maximum planting depth of 830 mm to adhere to all
regulations. The standard minimum planting depth of 610 mm applies.
To allow for a level clearance height of all signals at a Toucan, straight poles are
also available in 4.32 m length.

2.3.4 Erecting the Pole
The pole assembly may be completed to the point of having drawn up the cables
and fitted at least the pole cap prior to erection, in which case see Section 2.3.5.
Alternatively, assembly may follow erection in which case go to Section 2.3.6.
Transport lantern bracket assemblies, pole cap assembly, pole draw rope,
ladders and all necessary tools to the first pole location.
The mounting kit (delivered separately) includes a ‘U’ bolt and two M8 bolts that
are used to attach pole spacers and then the signal head to the pole.
The ‘U’ bolt is fixed in the lower position; attach a nut loosely to one end (to
prevent the bolt being lost inside the pole), feed the other end in through one
hole and out of the other. Remove the nut, place the pole spacer over the bolt
ends and attach firmly to the pole using plain M8 washers and M8 nuts.
The upper pole spacer is held in place with two M8 bolts, washers and nuts that
can be held in place with a hand inside the pole whilst fixing to the pole. These
bolts should be securely tightened.
2.3.5 Wiring Pole prior to erection
Each cable can be fed through the base aperture to the top of the pole using the
draw rope if necessary to pull the cable up.
Unpack and dismantle the pole cap assembly and fit the terminal block assembly
to the pole with the nuts, bolts and washers supplied.
Connect the earth cable from the terminal block assembly to the earth connector
in the pole.
Secure all cable(s) to the slots on the terminal block assembly using the CET
connector(s) and worm drive hose clip(s). Note that a suitable allowance must be
made for the amount of cable at the bottom of the pole.
The pole is now ready for erection. Once this operation is completed, the
excavation at the base of the pole may be back-filled.
Note that Lanterns are not terminated until after the cables have been tested.
On completion of all pole top terminations, the tests described in the Installation
and Testing Handbook (see section 1.3) are to be completed.
2.3.6 Wiring Pole after erection
Each cable can be fed through the base aperture to the top of the pole using the
draw rope if necessary to pull the cable up.
This operation is then repeated for each pole at the intersection.
Unpack and dismantle the pole cap assembly and fit the terminal block assembly
to the pole with the nuts, bolts and washers supplied.
Connect the earth cable from the terminal block assembly to the earth connector
in the pole.
Secure all cable(s) to the slots on the terminal block assembly using the CET
connector(s) and worm drive hose clip(s).

Measure off wires to length, cut, strip, terminate necessary cores to terminal
block and terminate two cables cores in earthing block for test purposes as
described in Section 2.3.8.
Once this operation is completed, the excavation at the base of the pole may be
back-filled.
Note that lanterns are not terminated until after the cables have been tested.
On completion of all pole top terminations, the tests described in the Installation
and Testing Handbook (see section 1.3) are to be completed.
2.3.7 Neutral Connections General
For the purpose of the following text, for ELV systems the ground return is
considered in the same way as a neutral return for a LV system.
Introduction
Street wiring faults can sometimes affect the display of traffic signals on-street.
Poor connections, for example in pole top termination blocks usually leads to the
failure of signals to illuminate properly which may be detected by lamp
monitoring where this is implemented.
Context
Where common neutral connections are used it is possible for the failure of a
neutral connection to cause unexpected signal displays, where one or more
signals within a given signal head are incorrectly illuminated simultaneously. This
lack of neutral connection is not detectable by the controller because the signal
voltage presented at the controller terminals does not exceed the required
thresholds for conflict or correspondence monitoring.
When incandescent signals are used a cable fault of this type usually causes the
signals to be illuminated at a low level and is not particularly noticeable. For LED
signals however it is possible for the signals to flash, at least at their 'dim' level.
Although the rate of signal flashing is such that they are only typically illuminated
for a very short time, less than the conflict / correspondence time defined in
TR2500, it can be more noticeable than the display seen with incandescent
lamps.
Procedure
Normally this type of fault only affects a single signal head or pole and due to
other signals displaying correctly is unlikely to cause signalisations that could be
considered dangerous, so retrospective action is not essential.
Therefore we are not mandating retrospective action on existing sites, however if
the customer wishes to re-wire then we can do this on a chargeable basis
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 32 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
However for new LED sites where it is desired to reduce the likelihood of
incorrect displays, particularly involving green signals, it is recommended that
individual neutral returns are used for each green signal. For existing
incandescent sites where LED signals are being now fitted and spare cables
cores are available these may be used to provide additional neutral connections.
2.3.8 Pole Neutral Connections and Terminations (Halogen)
On long neutral runs during Red/Amber, the current can cause large voltage
drops. This contravenes the IEE Regulations which only allow a 2.5% voltage
drop overall. In addition, the voltage drops can affect the operation of the green
voltage monitor and/or lamp monitors. The length of the neutral feeds must not
exceed the length shown below. The number of bulbs is the total number of
bulbs which can be illuminated at any one time, e.g. phase A and phase AB will
both have two bulbs lit during the Red/Amber period. Where two poles are fed on
one cable, the length of cable should be taken as the mid-point between the two
poles.
The cable inside a pole is approximately 3.25 metres. So, for normal runs, the
length of run shown on the STS should be approximately six metres shorter than
the maximum allowable length of cable.
Where a cable run exceeds the figures shown, two cores of the cable can be
used as the neutral feeds, then the distances shown can be increased by a
factor of 1.5.

If there is a danger of neutral connectors being disconnected it is recommended
that separate neutrals be used for:
1. Signals and green arrows
2. Wait indicators
3. Box Signs, Solar Cell and MVDs
4. Sonalert on Pelican Controllers.
If more than one armoured cable conductor with the same function needs to be
terminated into the post terminal block, they should be connected into one side
of the connector. The other side should be left clear for the connection of lantern
conductors.
2.3.9 Pole Neutral Connections and Terminations for CLS ELV
See 667/DS/20664/048 – Traffic Signal Junction Cabling Design Certification for
ELV Systems - Latest Issue.
2.4 Controller Neutral Connection
Neutral kits are available for the ST800 and ST400 controllers. The part numbers
are 667/1/27068/000 and 667/1/20679/000 (or /001 with terminal block)
respectively. Where these are not available, proceed as described below.
Minimum wire size to be 24/0.2 mm (1.5 sq. mm) and colour to be black for
neutrals. Length required approximately 1.5 metres maximum.
Cut lengths of wire 60 mm long and bare each end for 10 mm.
Starting at the appropriate terminal block insert two separate ends into the block
and screw down tightly. Take each loose end and loop around to the next
position. Continue in this fashion for as many neutral terminal points as are
required. Two lengths of wire approximately 250 mm long (with bare ends for 10
mm) can be used to loop around to other terminal block positions.
Terminal blocks may be used for both neutral looping and phase live output
looping that may require more than the single screw terminal provided. See
Figure . Note that no bare strands should be exposed when the looping is
complete. Consult the appropriate controller installation manual for details of the
terminal blocks designated for such use.
It is important that all of these connections are checked for tightness during
periodic inspections (PI).

2.5 Helios Bracket Assemblies
There are four types of bracket for Helios:
1. The standard bracket that is used top and bottom on a three aspect case
(667/2/30070/003) and the bottom bracket on the four in-line, two in-line and
single aspect assemblies.
2. A four in line assembly has a long top bracket (667/2/30070/004) and a
standard bottom bracket.
3. A two in line (pedestrian) assembly uses a longer top bracket
(667/2/30070/002) fitted as shown in Figure and a standard bottom bracket.
4. A single aspect assembly uses a one aspect top bracket (667/2/30070/001)
and a standard bottom bracket.
Three-aspect signal heads are generally delivered with the brackets attached.
For a four in line case the long top bracket is attached to the top of the signal
head and the bottom bracket is attached to the separately delivered bottom
aspect.
2.5.1 Extension Bracket Assembly
Signal heads can be mounted away from the pole using extension arms. To
ensure that the arms are mounted the correct way up, the mounting plate on the
arm should be examined. It will be apparent that the lip is longer in one direction
and the longer lip must be mounted toward the top of the pole.
Make up on the ground by laying out the two horizontal arms and attaching the
vertical bar between them using the fixings provided.
Hang the extension bracket on the pole and fix using the nuts provided.
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 35 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
Add bolts and spacers to the extension bracket on which to hang the signal
head. All bolts should be securely tightened.
Figure 13 – Extension Bracket
Connections from the signal head to the pole are enabled by the use of a
terminal block in the top aspect case.
2.5.2 Side Mounting Bracket
Where signal heads are to be fitted at an angle of rotation greater than 45 , and
also need to be tilted, side mounting brackets (part no. 667/1/30200/058) should
be installed as shown in Figure 14 to assist in final adjustment. This usually only
applies to road traffic signals.
They may also be used to fit an AGD (section 2.34) if required.

Figure shows a selection of arrangements, but it is not an exhaustive depiction
of what is possible. A maximum of eight modules may be incorporated on one
assembly, arranged as a four-aspect lantern assembly with two side boxes on
each side.
2.6.1 Sacrificial Caps
Most signal head assemblies are delivered with the sacrificial caps and brackets
fully assembled and attached to the signal head. In those cases where the
assembly has to be made on site, follow the instructions given below.
Sacrificial cap assemblies are fitted to either end of the main signal head. The
assemblies are made up of an end cap, the sacrificial cap, the cap-to-bracket
fitting and an 8 mm Allen bolt. They differ only in the design of the cap; one has a
smooth lower surface and the other has teeth that engage in the end cap.

Figure 16 – Sacrificial Cap parts
The sacrificial caps must be fitted correctly. The smooth cap is fitted to the
top of the signal head and the toothed cap is fitted to the bottom.
Assemble the parts as follows:
1.
Attach one end cap at each end of the signal head using five screws. (The
sacrificial cap end cap fixes in a similar position to the end cap fitted to
side boxes shown in Figure .)
Note: For a four-in-line the bottom cap should be attached to the fourth module,
which will not be attached to the main signal head at this stage of the
installation.
2.
Attach the smooth sacrificial cap and one bracket fixing to the top end
cap.
3.
Attach the toothed sacrificial cap and the other bracket fixing to the bottom
end cap.
4.
The Allen bolts should be loosely screwed into place using the 8 mm Allen
key. Adjustment is needed later; see section 2.36.1.

2.6.2 Brackets
Most signal head assemblies are delivered to site with the sacrificial caps and
brackets ready attached to the signal head. In those cases where the assembly
has to be made on site, follow the instructions given below.
The brackets should be attached to the signal head-to-bracket fixings at both
ends of the signal head, using the M10 screws and bolts supplied. Do not fully
tighten the screws, as adjustment is required later. See section 2.36.1.
2.6.3 Remove Doors
Two sliding clips on either side fix the door to its Aspect. When signal heads and
side boxes are delivered, the doors are fitted.
To remove a door, open all four clips and lift the door off. If necessary, use the
point of a screwdriver as shown in Figure to push open the door clips. A Teflonbased or similar dry type lubricant may be used to lubricate the clips.

2.6.4 Green Arrow (Halogen), CLS with LMF, CLS (NLM) and CLS ELV
The green arrow optic includes a metal mask (667/2/30074/101) as shown in
Figure . This module is delivered with the mask positioned either vertically
(straight ahead) or horizontally for left- or right-turn. The mask has castlations
that fit into indentations in the reflector/lens retaining ring enabling it to point in
any one of 16 directions, depending on individual site requirements.
Figure 20 – Green Arrow mask
Any adjustment to the orientation of the green arrow should be carried out with
the optic door removed from its aspect and placed on a flat surface to help in
positioning the lens seal.
The Type B CLS ELV module is designed such that the Arrow Mask can be
replaced / adjusted with the door ring in situ. This removes the potential of
disturbing the lens seal as the clear lens is retained by the door ring.

2.6.7 Four in Line
A four in line configuration is delivered with three aspects assembled and the
fourth in separate packaging. The bottom bracket will be attached to the fourth
aspect.
The fourth aspect should first have the O ring fitted (included with the mounting
kit) to seal the join between the boxes. It should then be clipped in place and
secured using the two M5 x 45 mm screws supplied in the outer fitting positions
(see Figure and Figure ).
2.7 Side Boxes
Side boxes are supplied with all the necessary fixings to fit them to the signal
head. One metal plate should be screwed vertically between the units; the other
fits horizontally for extra support. See Figure and Figure for fixing details. There
is a conduit supplied to run the cables through.
The holes for the conduit should be drilled using an 18 mm or 20 mm drill bit in
the forward drill start position on the signal head as shown in Figure with a
corresponding hole in the side box. Figure shows the conduit fitting from inside
an aspect case.
If two side boxes are to be fitted on one side, they should be connected together

If CLS ELV Type B units are to be retro-fitted to an existing installation it may be
necessary to relocate transformers fitted within the signal head enclosure to
avoid a clash with the aspect enclosure body.
Lamp transformers tend to offer sufficient clearance, however 24V transformers
with top mounted fused terminal blocks (as used for AGD units) must be
mounted on the rear of the signal head enclosure NOT on the bottom (see
Figure 33).

2.14 Lamp Monitoring Unit (LMF)
The LMF units will normally be factory fitted into the appropriate aspect body
before delivery. The are two variants of the LMF unit
a) LMF for Red Aspect
- 667/1/31180/230R
b) LMF for Amber or Green Aspect
- 667/1/31180/230AG
The two pin plug from the CLS unit and the two pin mains socket from the
controller output are fitted into the LMF Unit.
Note the Mains Input Wiring is formed so as to prevent any water ingress from
the cables dropping in to the LMF Unit.

Note that the Mains wiring to other LMF Units is tied to the LMF chassis with two
Pushbutton Ties which prevents any heat from the LMF unit from damaging any
of the cable forms.

2.15 ELV TRAM Indicator
The TRAM indicator should only be replaced as a complete module. The
maintenance spares should always be fully equipped modules but the originally
supplied equipment may be sub equipped. The TRAM indicator uses the same
LED driver module as other Helios ELV optics so is compatible with the
ST900ELV lamp monitoring. Care should be taken when removing the and
refitting the unit to not tram the multi-way cable and not to unscrew fixings that
hold the module together.

Figure 36 – TRAM Indicator rear view showing Keyhole slots
To remove the Tram indicator from its housing:
The Tram indicator is a complete module and must be replaced as a complete
assembly. The LED and power supply assembly is fitted into a standard Helios
aspect box. This assembly remains in the rear part of the box when the door/lens
assembly is opened. Care must be exercised whilst the door lens assembly
is open as the LED “dots” are extremely bright and may dazzle the viewer.
The assembly is kept in the rear part of the box by screws attaching it to the rear
of the box. A screwdriver with a 150mm crosshead blade is required to reach the
screws. To aid replacement the fixings are located in keyhole slots. Once the
screws are slackened a few turns the assembly can be lifted and withdrawn from
the box. Once the assembly is clear of the box the 12 way Molex connector can
be unplugged. The Molex connector is a tight fit and there are release leavers
that must be squeezed to enable the connector to part. It is essential that the
operative is stable with both hands free when attempting this operation. Re-fitting
is the reverse of removal. The operative must ensure that the cable does not
become trapped when refitting the assembly. The entire assembly can then be
returned for repair. Although there are 3 variants of the TRAM indicator module
only the fully equipped version will be kept as a spare. The faulty unit will be
upgraded to the fully equipped version as part of the repair process. Dismantling
of the indicator module must not be attempted. Under no circumstances should
the 4 nuts on the front of the module be undone as this will result in the module
falling apart. This could result in short circuits and the signals extinguishing. It
could also result in damage to the LED’s and the driver modules.

2.16 Terminal Blocks
Fixing positions have been provided for terminal blocks, which are generally only
fitted in aspects where an extension bracket has been used. Figure shows a
terminal block fitted in one of the positions provided and Figure gives all the
possible fixing positions.
2.17 Bridge Rectifier
See Figure and Figure for the fixing position.
Note: if the cable P-clip is fitted in this position, either fit the bridge to another
unused pillar position or move the P-clip.
Figure 38 – Bridge Rectifier
2.18 Cable Gland
The cable gland is normally fitted in the knockout on the back of the top (red)
aspect, but it may be fitted where required, with the following provisos:
1. For a four-in-line assembly the gland must be fitted to the second box.
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 53 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
2. Side mounted signals may have the cable gland fitted in one of the three
recesses in the side of the module.
3. Pedestrian signals may have the cable gland fitted in any position to reduce
the length of the conduit.
Wherever the gland is fitted, consideration should be given to the length of the
transformer/PSU wires and the amount of conduit tubing between the signal
head and the pole. A long length of tubing is unsightly and should be avoided
wherever possible.
To fit the conduit tubing, screw the conduit adapter into the cable gland. Feed the
locking ring onto the conduit tube and push the tubing firmly onto the end of the
adapter. Seal in place with the locking ring. Note that the tubing does not form
part of the signal head assembly, but should be kept in quantity by installers and
cut to fit as required.
2.19 Hoods
The signal is normally supplied with Helios moulded primary or secondary hoods,
but will also accommodate a wide range of hoods used with the previous Mellor
style signals if required, including most louvred and tunnelled hoods.
The new moulded hood is fitted with insertion slots for accurate positioning and
is attached using fir-tree clips. See Figure for details. The clips are just pushed
in to hold the hood in place.
Figure 39 – Standard Hood fitting
The moulded hoods may be fitted straight or turned up to 90 without
modification. If, for any reason, a hood needs to be attached at more than 90 to
the vertical, new holes will need to be drilled in the hood. Also, hoods used on
previous signals may need on site drilling to fit Helios. See section 2.19.1 for
details.
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 54 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
Figure 40 – Angled Hood fitting
An optional Pedestrian Aspect Hood is available. This hood is supplied with
predrilled fixing holes but is of a non formed construction. The hood is fitted to
the aspect using fir-tree clips.
2.19.1 Drilling Hoods
To fit hoods that do not have fixing holes that align with those on the Helios door,
including louvred and tunnel hoods, the fitting positions have to be drilled using a
6 mm drill bit. A moulded hood fitted at more than 90 also needs to be drilled.
Correctly position the hood to be drilled on the Helios door and then mark the
appropriate positions that require drilling. Remove the hood from the door and
drill the marked fixing hole positions.
Where metal hoods (which may be heavy) have been drilled, 5 mm bolts, metal
rivets or taptite screws may be more appropriate fixings than the plastic fir-tree
clips.
2.20 Solar Cell
A solar cell is fitted when the customer requires the signals on the intersection to
be dimmed at night.
It is mounted on the top of a 3-aspect case, as shown in Figure where it will
receive a non-interrupted northern light.
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 55 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
Figure 41 – Solar Cell
The solar cell used is a Royce Thompson Electric Ltd type RTE/P5 (55 Lux)
(STCL part number 506/4/97891/000) or equivalent, which plugs into a Rotaloc
Socket. The cell is mounted on the top of the 3-aspect case, through a 20 mm
diameter hole, drilled using one of the two central guide indents on top of the
case. Around the central indent are eight other drill start points, four of which
should be used to secure the solar cell to the case, pointing north, using nuts
and bolts and the “cork” washer. See Figure .
The three terminals on the socket are connected as follows:
Socket terminal L – Live
Socket terminal N – Neutral
Socket terminal Lo – to Controller dim input
Each terminal is wired to the terminal block mounted on the top of the pole by
24/0.2 mm wire using the following colours:
Line – Brown
Neutral – Blue
Load – White
The solar switch is connected to its socket by locating the terminals in their slots
and pushing down, then twisting the unit clockwise when looking down on the
socket. This twist completes the circuit and, if not done correctly, the solar switch
will not function.
During daylight the solar switch should give the signal bright condition. To test it,
cover the unit for approximately one minute and check that the signals go to the
dim condition. Uncovering the unit should then result in the signals going to the
bright condition after approximately one minute.

2.30.2 CLS Wait (Production)
The CLS Wait has been designed as a production replacement for the LED Wait
unit and as such shares the same part numbers. This unit offers the benefit of
CLS technology and provides a clear uniform display banner. CLS Wait units are
also lamp monitorable.

The mechanical installation of the equipment is as defined for the LED Wait Mk2
Indicator Units, see sections 2.25, 2.26, 2.27, 2.29.
Module Replacement
Should it become necessary to replace the CLS Wait Module the part number is
667/1/47710/00.
1.
Disconnect the earth connection from the module.
2.
Gently prise the four plastic retaining clips and
withdraw the module.
3.
Disconnect the red and black wires from the driver
board terminal block noting their position.
4.
Connect the red and black wires to the driver
terminal block on the replacement module.
5.
Align the module to the retaining clips and apply
pressure until the retaining clips are fully engaged.
6.
Re-connect the earth connection to the module
metalwork.
Lamp Monitoring ELV
For ELV controllers the CLS Wait will be monitored as if it were an ELV CLS
signal aspect. It will be necessary to change the load type for the sensors
monitoring the Wait indicators. This can be done in the IC4 configuration or with
the following handset command:
KLT {Sensor Number} =1
Lamp Monitoring LV
Refer to section 2.30 for a description of available lamp monitoring options.
If the controller is an ST800 LED the firmware needs to be 667/TZ/12800/000
“PB800” issue 31 or later.
If necessary, change the configuration PROM. Confirm that the Controller
configuration has been generated by acompetent person in accordance with the
required procedures in place for the county and region. NOTE: A site can usually
be upgraded to CLS without changing the configuration PROM depending on the
signals types fitted and monitoring required.
The KRW command can be used to enable Lamp monitoring of the CLS Wait
units on an LV CLS LED system. The Format of the KRW command is as
follows:
·KRW {Sensor Number} =1
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 76 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
This will enable Wait indicator monitoring on the internal sensor. Different faults
may be displayed depending on the combination of lamps illuminated. Refer to
the handset handbook 667-HH-27000-000.
Ensure that all lamp loads are learned using the KLR and KML commands.
Follow usual commissioning procedures for completion of site installation.

2.35 Bleep and Sweep Unit
The Bleep and Sweep Unit, which is fitted into a Helios Signal Head, has been
developed by Sedgewall Communications Ltd. for use as a Pedestrian Crossing
Alarm. It has a sound that is quite distinctive from other traffic noises and has the
ability to adjust its volume according to ambient noise levels such that in busy
city streets it will be much louder than for example, in quiet residential area. This
means that during off peak hours when traffic volume is low, the disruption to
local residents is kept to a minimum.
The Bleep and Sweep Unit is to be fitted into Bleep and Sweep Signal Heads
during site installation. (See Figure , Figure and Figure ).
The following are the Signal Head options for Bleep and Sweep –
667/1/30200/840 – Red Man/Green Man/Bleep & Sweep – STD (halogen)

2.36 Fitting Signal Head to Pole
This section describes the recommended method of installing the assembled
signal head onto the pole.
To carry the signal head with any attached side boxes safely, remove all doors
and place a hand inside the top module.
Do not carry the signal head by the top bracket.
Hang the signal head on the pole mountings. Do up the two nuts and large bright
washers and spring washers securely to hold the top bracket to the pole, aligning
the cable entry points on the bracket and pole spacer. Then attach the bottom
bracket with nuts and washers loosely, leaving it at its lowest extent.

HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
Figure 68 – Bottom bracket fitted
2.36.1 Adjusting Tilt and Rotation
Once the signal head has been fitted to the pole, the angles of tilt and rotation
(see Figure and Figure ) need to be adjusted before finally tightening the Allen
bolts and hex screws. Helios may be tilted up to 6 from the upright and rotated
up to 90 . Note that it is not possible to tilt a signal head that is rotated over 45
without the use of side mounting brackets (section 2.5.2).
Adjust the distance between the pole and the signal head and the angle of tilt by
sliding the signal head over the brackets. Fully tighten the top and bottom hex
nuts to the required torque setting (see Appendix D for tightening procedure). Fit
the nut caps provided over the top and bottom nuts (shown in Figure ) to stop
reflections and to give weather protection.
The toothed sacrificial cap is designed so that in an impact, the teeth will break
and allow the signal head to swing, absorbing part of the force and minimising
damage to the signal head.
Figure 69 – Angles of Tilt
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 92 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
Figure 70 – Angle of Rotation
Make sure that the Allen bolts are loose enough so that the toothed sacrificial
cap on the bottom bracket is not engaged before rotating the signal head. Adjust
as required, tighten the Allen bolts top, bottom to the required torque setting
(refer to Appendix D for tightening procedure),
Note: As a final adjustment the nuts holding the bottom bracket to the pole
should be loosened slightly, the signal head and bracket pushed up as far
as possible and the nuts re-tightened securely.
Fit nut caps over the four pole mounting nuts to stop reflections. If the bolt
protrudes too far to allow the nut caps to fit over the nuts, add the extra washers
provided in the pole mounting kit. Remove and replace the nuts one at a time so
that the mounting brackets are not disturbed from their final positions.
2.36.2 Signal Head to Pole Connection
Adjust the amount of conduit tube to ensure there is sufficient to project into the
pole.
Pass the conduit and cables through the cable entry point in the pole and draw
the cables up through the top of the pole.
Generally, red and green ident sleeves identify the wires, but where this is not
apparent see the following note for a way of identifying the appropriate leads, or
tug gently on a wire to find its origin.
Note: Wires from all transformers are the same length. Therefore when wires
come out of the signal head, on a three aspect halogen, the longest leads
will be from the red aspect, the next longest from the amber aspect and
the shortest from the green aspect.
Take care when making connections to the top connector that the cables will not
be crushed or damaged by the pole cap screw. If there could be a problem, put
extra insulation around the connections.
Once the connections have been made, screw the pole cap onto the terminal
block assembly, ensuring that the thread is engaged. Do not overtighten.

2.36.3 Fit Bulbs (Halogen)
Note that bulbs are not delivered with the signal head assembly; they are kept by
STCL Services department.
Fit a tungsten halogen bulb into each of the bulb holders using the sleeve in
which the bulb is supplied to push the bulb into place. It should not be touched
with the fingers. Before fitting the bulb holder into the reflector, ensure that the
bulb is positioned with its filament vertical and at right angles to the bulb holder.
Fit the bulb holder into place in the reflector. Lugs on the bulb holder fit into
channels at the rear of the reflector and clip into place.
2.36.4 Fit Doors
Making sure they are the right way up fit each door over its correct module and
slide the clips into place to hold the door. If necessary, use the point of a
screwdriver as shown in Figure to help close the door clip.
Where specified, screw the door clips in place with an anti-vandal screw. Figure
shows the screw position in the middle of the clip. Screws may be fitted to all
door clips, although the door will be secure if two are used on diagonally
opposite sides of the door.

COMMISSIONING
Adjust the angles of tilt, rotation and arrow directions to customer satisfaction.
In the absence of alternative instructions from the customer, the primary signals
should be focussed to 40 m from the stop line and secondary signals should be
focussed to the centre of the stop line.
Inspect every aspect before power is applied and check that all aspect
components are correctly seated, aligned and firmly fixed (particularly
transformers, PSUs, LED PCBs, CLS Units, LMF Units and OEM equipment)
and CLS (ELV) units are only connected to a ST900 (ELV) Controller.
Note 1
The CLS (ELV) signal head is identified by a label marked ‘ELV’ on the
bottom surface of the signal head along with a label marked ‘ELV’ on
each CLS unit used in each aspect.
Note 2
The ELV compliant Nearside units are clearly marked with ELV labels
inside the case.
The p.c.b. assemblies within must only be replaced with ELV compliant
assemblies. The visual identification of these assemblies is described in
the Appendix C - Visual Identification of ELV Compatible PCB’s.
3.1 Nearside Monitoring (including pcb upgrade to MK2.LP)
The following p.c.b. assemblies are compatible with Nearside monitoring facilities
of an ELV controller. These versions include slight modifications to the circuitry
which allow fully monitorable operation with an ELV controller. Visual
identification of compatible circuit boards is described in appendix C.

Non-ELV Controllers
These controllers do not monitor Nearside units so it is possible to utilise the
Nearside Mk2 LP p.c.b to replace the Nearside Mk1 or Mk 2 p.c.b.
Replace the 667/1/30695/XXX with the equivalent 667/1/33655/XXX board.
There is a reduction in power consumption as the new p.c.b. is more efficient.
ELV Controllers – Replacing all Nearside Boards
For small installations it may be cheaper to replace all Nearside p.c.b’s with the
new version and convert the site to Nearside LP operation. This is especially true
where the number of Nearside units is small – e.g. single pedestrian crossing.
It is also possible that customers may request all units to be replaced. This will
result in a reduction of running costs of the site.
In both cases the controller firmware must be upgraded to PB801 Issue 13 or
later before monitoring of the Nearside units is enabled.
ELV Controllers – Replacing a single board.
For larger installations, or where the power saving is not required, a single
667/1/30695 board may be replaced with the 667/1/33655 equivalent. In this
case the Nearside must also be fitted with a Nearside Mk2 LP dummy load unit
to maintain monitoring compatibility. The controller firmware and monitoring
profile remain the same.
It is only necessary to fit one dummy load unit per Nearside as it supports both
the Red and Green aspects.

MAINTENANCE
Before starting any maintenance work, read the Safety Warning on page 2 of this
Handbook.
4.1 Routine Maintenance Visits
Warning:
Mains voltages are present in LED and LED (NLM) aspects.
The mains supply to the signal head must be
disconnected/switched off before working on an LED or LED
(NLM) aspect.
The interval between visits depends on local conditions but typically would be
every six months. Routine maintenance consists of the following:
The outside of the signal head should be cleaned. The lens should only be
cleaned using a proprietary window cleaner. The rest of the signal head may be
cleaned with water.
The front and rear drainage slots in the top box should be cleared on each
routine visit.
The drainage slot between the door and body of each aspect should be cleared
on each routine visit. Check that the seal between the body and door has its
drainage slot in the centre of the bottom of the body (especially on earlier
models).
The fixings, particularly for the hoods and backing boards, should be checked,
tightened where required and replaced if necessary.
The securing screws for the Helios end caps may become loose if the head has
been struck by a vehicle but not rendered in-operative. It is therefore
recommended that the screws and main securing bolt are checked for tightness.
If either can be rotated more than ¼ turn then the procedure for tightening under
“Sacrifical Caps” should be employed.
Bulbs, LED or LED (NLM) boards (and fluorescent tubes if fitted) should be
inspected and replaced if necessary.
Check that the CLS unit (Futurit Type) is seated correctly and the ‘pip’ at the top
of the CLS unit is aligned correctly within the Retaining Ring (See Section 4.2.8.)
Teflon based or similar dry type lubricant may be used to lubricate the door clips
if necessary.
4.2 First Line Maintenance
First line maintenance will be achieved on a modular replacement basis.
Wherever possible when carrying out maintenance, remove the affected part and
work on the ground. When a door is removed and replaced, make sure it is the
right way up when refitting.
Note: Where anti-vandal screws are fitted to the door clips, it is not necessary to
remove them completely before opening the door. Partially unscrew them
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 98 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
so that the head is level with the outer edge of the clip. This should enable
the clip to slide without the door hitting the screw.
4.2.1 Bulb Replacement (Halogen)
Where a bulb is to be replaced, the door may be opened from either side and the
bulb holder removed by gently squeezing the bulb holder clips. Pull the bulb free
of the bulb holder and push the new bulb into place.
When fitting the new bulb make sure that it is not touched with the fingers as this
shortens the life of the bulb and can affect its performance. If the signal is not to
be disconnected during this operation, it is recommended that stout leather
gloves be worn to protect the hands from the heat of a lit bulb.
Ensure that the bulb is positioned with its filament vertical and at right angles to
the bulb holder.
Replace the bulb holder; lugs on the bulb holder fit into the channels at the rear
of the reflector and clip into place. Secure the door, tightening any anti-vandal
screws.
4.2.2 Bulb Holder Replacement (Halogen)
See the note in section 4.2 regarding anti-vandal screws. Open the door from
either side and remove the bulb holder by gently squeezing the bulb holder clips.
Undo the wire that connects the bulb to the transformer. Place the new bulb
holder into the rear of the reflector and reconnect the wire to the transformer.
Secure the door, tightening any anti-vandal screws.
4.2.3 Transformer Replacement (Halogen)
Warning:
Mains voltages are present. The mains supply to the signal
head must be disconnected/switched off before working on a
Halogen Signal Aspect transformer.
See the note in section 4.2 regarding anti-vandal screws. Open the door from
either side and disconnect the bulb holder leads and the Earth lead from the
aspect transformer. Remove the door if necessary for ease of working, placing it
safely on the ground.
Either of the following procedures may now be used.
Disconnect the transformer mains input from the top of the Signal Pole and feed
the cables back to the transformer that is to be replaced.
Remove the two screws that are holding the transformer to the bottom of the
Aspect and extract the transformer from the aspect.
Fitting the new transformer is the reverse operation to that of removing it.

Detach the LED or LED (NLM) PCB from the door by squeezing the fir-tree clips
on the plastic pillars. Unscrew the lens retaining ring; tip out the lens and keep
the seal to use again, unless it also needs replacing.
Fit the seal around the new lens and place the door over the lens and seal,
aligning them very carefully. When correctly fitted the pattern on the masking
should point downwards, thus:
Holding them together, tip the door/lens over, replace the lens retaining ring and
check that the small tag on the outside of the retaining ring is pointing upward.
Do up the four screws that hold the retaining ring/lens to the door. Note that
there is no need for a seal between the lens and the lens retaining ring.
Refit the LED or LED (NLM) PCB onto the clips, replace one side of the door,
refit the cable connector and clip the cables into place on the back of the PCB

(see Figure and Figure ). Make sure that the clear plastic shield covers the cable
connector to give protection from the mains voltage present.
Do up the other door clips (and any anti-vandal screws).
4.2.24 Lens Replacement CLS with LMF or CLS (NLM)
Note: As the lens to door seal is difficult to align once removed, this procedure
should not be carried out on site. A complete replacement door assembly
should be fitted as described in section 4.2.17 and the lens replacement
done at the depot.
A damaged lens should only be replaced with one displaying the correct aspect.
Part numbers are given in APPENDIX B.
Undo the door (loosening the anti-vandal screws as described in section 4.2 if
fitted) and unplug the lead from the phase power input PL1 to LMF unit and then
the CLS Unit to the LMF unit (SKT1 – CLS with LMF) or the Mains Input cable on
a CLS (NLM) or CLS (ELV) and remove the door from the front of the module.
Working on the ground –
a) if the CLS unit type is a Futurit, remove the two screws holding the two CLS
Retaining Clips and the two remaining screws holding the Lens Retaining
Ring the front door.
b) If the CLS unit type is Dialight, remove the 4 screws holding the unit to the
front door.
Replace the lens as required.
Fit the new lens as follows –
a) if the CLS unit is a Futurit type, fit the lens retaining ring ensuring the small
lug on the rear of the lens fits into a cut-out on the front of the lens retaining
ring. It is vital to ensure that the lens fits snugly into the Lens Retaining Ring
and cannot turn. Fit the seal around the new lens and place the door over the
lens and seal. Holding the door, lens and lens retaining ring in place turn the
assembly over and replace the two screws that hold the Lens retaining ring to
the aspect door. Fit the CLS unit and the two CLS retaining clips. (Refer to
Section 4.2.8 for CLS replacement procedure)
b) If the CLS unit is a Dialight type, fit the lens on to the CLS unit ensuring that
the lens is positioned correctly. Fit the seal around the new lens and place
the door over the lens and seal. Holding the door, lens and CLS unit, turn the
assembly over and replace the 4 screws holding the CLS unit to the aspect
door.
When the lens is correctly fitted the “arrow” pattern on the masking should point
upwards, thus:
Replace one side of the door into the aspect body and refit the CLS unit lead.
Close the door and do up the other door clips (and any anti-vandal screws).

4.2.25 Lens Replacement CLS ELV
Note: As the lens to door seal is difficult to align once removed, this procedure
should not be carried out on site. A complete replacement door assembly
should be fitted as described in section 4.2.17 and the lens replacement
done at the depot.
A damaged lens should only be replaced with one displaying the correct aspect.
Part numbers are given in APPENDIX B.
Undo the door (loosening the anti-vandal screws as described in section 4.2 if
fitted) and unplug the input cable. Remove the door from the front of the module.
Working on the ground CLS ELV Type A –
a) If the CLS ELV unit type is Type A, remove the 4 screws holding the unit to
the front door.
b) Replace the lens as required.
c) Fit the lens on to the CLS ELV unit ensuring that the lens is positioned
correctly. Fit the seal around the new lens and place the door over the lens
and seal. Holding the door, lens and CLS ELV unit, turn the assembly over
and replace the 4 screws holding the CLS ELV unit to the aspect door.
Working on the ground CLS ELV Type B –
a) Remove the 4 screws securing the retaining ring to the front door. The
retaining ring with aspect attached can now be removed from the door.
b) Remove and replace the lens as required, ensuring that the lens is positioned
correctly.
c) Fit the seal around the new lens and place the door over the lens and seal.
Turn the assembly over and re-fit the aspect by re-fixing the 4 screws holding
the retaining ring to the door.
When the lens is correctly fitted the “arrow” pattern on the masking should point
upwards, thus:
Replace one side of the door into the signal head enclosure and refit the input
cable. Close the door and do up the other door clips (and any anti-vandal
screws).
4.2.26 Sacrificial Cap Replacement
Note: Where the sacrificial cap is being replaced following an impact, inspect
the entire signal head carefully for associated damage.
To replace the sacrificial cap assembly, remove the single hex cap bolt in the
bottom bracket, then slacken the lower bracket to pole fixings. Swing the signal
out just enough to give access to the broken sacrificial cap.
667/HB/30000/000
Issue 24
Page 117 of 143
HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
Remove and replace the toothed sacrificial cap and refit the Allen bolt loosely.
Re-align the signal head (section 2.36.1) and re-tighten all bolts and screws.
4.2.27 Sacrifical Caps – Screw Tightening Procedure
It is possible for the Allen screws to become loosened after a collision with the
signal head. If the screws are found to be loose, then it is recommended that
they are removed and replaced using the procedure in - Helios Signal Head
Screw Fixing Procedure
If it is found not possible to secure the cap screws, then the cap should be
replaced as described in the previous section.
4.2.28 Modular Unit Replacement
Warning:
Mains voltages are present. The mains supply to the signal
head must be disconnected/switched off before working on an
LED aspect.
Where a modular unit has been damaged, the head has to be removed. Proceed
as follows:
Remove the pole cap, disconnect wiring to the signal head and feed cables back
through the cable entry point in the pole.
Remove the nuts holding first the bottom bracket and then the top bracket. Lift
the entire signal head free of the pole fittings and lower to the ground.
When the signal head has been removed, slacken the hex bolts holding the
sacrificial caps in place and then loosen the two screws at each end that hold the
brackets to the signal head.
The faulty unit may then be changed by removing the internal wiring, removing
any side boxes attached to the damaged module, removing the internal intermodule screws and unclipping the units. Do this by lifting the two tabs holding
the fronts of the units and applying force on the back of the module.
It is recommended that the screws (4.8 mm x 45 mm self-tapping) used to hold
the modules together are not replaced in their original position more than 10
times. Each module has four small indents provided at the front (Figure and
Figure in Appendix A), so that when a new module has been clipped into place,
previously unused screw positions may be used if required.
Re-connect the wiring between the modules and instal the signal head on the
pole as described in section 2.36.
Note that it will be necessary to re-align the signal head as described in section
2.36.1.

APPENDIX D - Helios Signal Head Screw Fixing Procedure
D.1 Introduction
The tightening of the single fixing between the bracket and the signal end caps is
of crucial importance to the security of the signal and in the following appendix
we cover four specific topics associated with this.
1) The correct method of tightening the bolts / end-cap fixings: These parts
can be damaged by over tightening or vehicle impact. Even if the damage
is not immediately apparent it may reduce the life expectancy of the signal
heads. If the parts are not assembled with sufficient torque then the head
may become loose breaking the mountings and potentially even fall off the
post.
2) Inspection of signal head fittings: It is an essential of part of any periodic
inspection to check the fixings that secure the signal to the pole and more
specifically the fixings that secure the brackets to the signal head and in
these sections we describe the recommendations for doing this.
3) The different types of fixings that have been used: As part of continuous
improvement processes later signal products have updated parts in this
area and care needs to be taken to ensure the correct bolt is used with
the correct fittings. In the following sections we will inform you on how to
identify compatible parts.
4) Where upgrades are recommended: We also recommend upgrades to
existing installations under specific circumstances and in the following
sections we will outline when and how this should be done.
Tools and Consumables Required
1. 8 to 60 Newton metres torque wrench (calibrated*) (Halfords item code 200238-0)
2. 8mm 3/8” drive hex bit (Halfords item code 168039-0)
3. Thule 6 metre securing straps (Halfords item code 144139-0)
* Please refer to ECNB09-118 for the correct way to use & calibrate the Torque Wrench
D.2 Tightening Procedure
Refer to drawing number 667/GL/30200/000 (which can be found later in this
section)
Ensure that the mating parts of the sacrificial bracket are joined (i.e. toothed
parts engaged) and the whole bracket has engaged in its position correctly.
Tighten the securing bolt using a torque wrench set to 20 Newton Metres.
NB If they are excessively loose or turn continuously (fail to tighten) then the cap
will need replacing.

HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
D.3 Inspection Procedure
With reference to the figure immediately below, inspect the end cap fasteners on
both ends of the Helios head. Determine if the securing screws are tight. The screw
should be seated firmly in position, securing the bracket/head correctly. There
should be no evidence that the screws have been over tightened, for example the
threads should not have been stripped out of the screw hole. If screws found to be
loose tighten appropriately and annotate on a Periodic Inspection report sheet.

2. Inspect the Helios head main fasteners (see below). Determine if the fasteners
are loose or if spring washers are fitted. If spring washers are fitted complete
procedure detailed below (see also section D.5 Upgrades). If spring washers are
not fitted check tightness of screw bolt using torque wrench set to 20NM, if there
is a requirement for tightening, annotate this requirement on a Periodic
Inspection report.

D.4 Different Fixings In the field
As a process of continuous improvement designs change and where possible
compatibility is maintained between old and new parts, however when this is not
possible, the compatibility issues that you must consider are noted in the
documentation. What follows is a description of the two types of end cap that you
may come across on product in the field, how to identify which are which and the
compatibility issues that must be considered.
Currently supplied end
cap with longer boss,
with which a longer
bolt is used
End Caps viewed from inside the signal
Previously supplied
end cap with shorter
boss for which a
shorter bolt is
required.

For the shorter bossed end cap use a 32mm bolt (part number 999/4/44333/532 or kit
667/1/31505/000, which includes nordlock washers). To aid identification of the correct
32mm length bolt (as supplied by Siemens) is coloured black.
For the longer bossed end cap use a 40mm bolt (part number 999/4/44333/040).
The only washers that are now recommended for use on the signal head end fixings
are a Nordlock washer (which consists of two parts) and this must also be combined
with a square washer.
The following are two different views of a Nordlock washer pair, it should be noted that
the two surfaces with the larger serrations are the two surfaces that should be mated
together when the washer is assembled.
The fixing currently
shipped is a Nordlock
washer pair and a
square washer.
However other earlier
fixings may be found in
the field using plain
washers, and / or a
combination of internal
or external serrated
shake proof washers
or spring washers.
The combination of a
plain washer, and spring
washer, is no longer
recommended and
should be upgraded.
Please refer to the
following section.

D.5 Upgrades Recommended
If the fixing present is not a Nordlock then upgrading to Nordlock should be considered,
and the upgrade to Nordlock is recommended where either the washer combination
includes a spring washer or where after having been tightened and torqued to the
recommended 20 Nm a second inspection within 6 months has shown the fixing to have
loosened again.
To determine if the present fixing has a spring washer, check as follows. Examine the
fixings if a square washer can be seen then it will be Nordlock.

HELIOS GENERAL HANDBOOK
If a plain rounder washer can be seen then a spring washer may also be included
(generally with the external or internal serrated washers, the serrations will be visible).
Below you will see a plain and spring washer combination, and it is this combination
that we at present recommend upgrading to Nordlock washers (using the method as
described in section D.2 to remove and replace the bolts and washers)
Determining If a Spring Washer is
fitted:
In this picture you can see,
1) The bolt head
2) The plain washer.
3) Another smaller diameter
washer in between which
show no signs of being
serrated i.e. it is smooth in
appearance. This is a
spring washer and should
be replaced using the
Nordlock replacement kit of
parts 667/1/31505/000.
There are other shakeproof
washers that may be fitted
both internal and external
toothed / serrated. at
present there is no
recommendation to replace
these.
Note / Warning
Due to a difference in boss lengths on end caps between those signals shipped with
Nordlocks already fitted (see section D.4 on compatibility of fixings). The upgrade kit as
noted above must be used on the older signals as it included the correct length bolt.
The correct bolt length for the shorter boss is 32mm and in the replacement kit these a
coloured black to assist in identifying the correct ones to use.

Appendix E- TRAM Indicator Cable connections and Aspects
The Tram indicator unit is similar to the Regulatory Signs as the main optical assembly remains in the
Lantern when the door assembly is opened.
The appearance of the Tram indicator is shown below.
Optional demand indicator
Tram indicator door assembly showing dots
Warning! When the Door assembly is
open and the unit powered, the dots will
be very bright, do NOT look directly into
them.
To remove the optical assembly from the body a long pozidrive screwdriver is required.
Suitable tool:- Buck and Hickman 215093 - 250mm long shaft and a PZ2 tip.
Do not under any
circumstances undo
these nuts (One of four
shown).
Access Area for screws at
the rear of the body. These
allow removal of the optic
assembly from the body.
Screw at rear of unit
in Keyhole slot.
To remove the indicator undo the 4 screws in the back of the body, through the slots provided, by giving
them 2 turns anticlockwise with the long handled pozidrive screwdriver. The whole assembly should then
be pushed upwards in the keyhole slots until the assembly can be partially withdrawn.
The multi-way cable must now be unplugged (and the optional demand indicator cable if fitted) so that the
unit can be totally withdrawn from the body. The multi-way connector is a tight fit and the operative must
be stable and secure prior to attempting removal. With the Tram indicator removed there will be full
access to the back of the assembly body. This will enable access to the cable entry gland position for
both installation and maintenance.

The optical assembly must NOT be further dismantled and care should be taken not to damage the unit
or to get any contaminants on the lenses.
The optic has a multi-way cable that needs to be terminated (usually to the pole cap assembly) in the
normal way. The Cable Colour code is shown in Table 1 below. It should be noted that not all aspects
(dots) are used in every installation and the controller specification should be studied to enable the
correct aspects to be connected. Unused connections should be terminated in spare terminal block
positions to prevent accidental contact with other wiring.
