Product information

Healthy fish thanks to an ideal pH value
The acidity defines the pH value of the water. It needs to be constantly checked and adjusted as necessary to maintain the health of the fish and plants. The correct pH value depends on the fish stock of the aquarium. The wrong pH value can cause stress and disease.

Easy to connect
Connect the pH electrode with the BNC connection to its respective measuring and control device. - RELIABLE –
The electrode has been individually tested and documented and needs to be replaced after about 2 years. It comes with a large protective cap, filled with storage solution.

pH electrodes:
Every pH control or measuring device and also the JBL pH-CO2 control device (JBL PROFLORA pH-Control Touch) requires a pH electrode (JBL PROFLORA pH-Sensor+Cal) to measure the pH value of the water. pH electrodes age with time and must be replaced about every 2 years. Every 30-45 days the pH electrode needs to be calibrated so that it continues to show accurate values. During calibration, the functionality of the electrode is also checked so that you know when a new electrode is needed. The pH electrodes do not like the addition of medication in the water and should be placed in a glass of aquarium water during treatments. pH electrodes should not be stored in distilled water but in a potassium chloride solution (KCl, a JBL storage solution).

Technical Data

FAQ
Is my sensor going to expire when we reach the date on the packaging?

No, don't worry. The MIN date on the packaging is not a BBD (best before date), but the date of the latest intial operation to guarantee 6 months warranty and 1 year operation. This information can also be found on the product packaging. Everything is therefore in order.

What does the MIN date on the packaging mean?

All pH sensors (electrodes) are wear parts and are subject to natural ageing. JBL grants a 6-month guarantee if the sensor is put into operation before the stated MIN date. The purchase receipt serves as proof.

What pH Control interface is suitable for the pH sensor?

A BNC connector is needed.

What does the message INSTAB mean?

The message INSTAB indicates: instable sensor voltage: the sensor tip is dirty, the electrolyte has leaked from the sensor, the sensor tip is damaged.

Remedy: Clean the sensor head (see the respective instruction), put the sensor into the storage solution for 24 hours and repeat the calibration. If this does not work the sensor is defective and should be replaced.

What deviations during the calibration are usual and how are they connected to the temperature?

It is difficult to give a precise answer without information about the sensor, particularly the age of the sensor. Good sensors have deviations in the range from 0.02 to 0.05 pH levels when calibrating.

The input voltage differs for each sensor, as each sensor has its own individual properties. For the majority of our sensors, it is between -30 and +30 mV at pH 7.

Both input voltages (pH 7 and pH 4) are important when assessing the quality of a sensor. The greater the difference between these two values, the better the sensor and the precision of the measurement and control. The differences should be over 140-150 mV.

The temperature sensor should always be used during calibration. The pH level varies according to temperature, so that it is always best to measure the pH level with temperature compensation. The deviation is between 20 and 30 °C, 0.17 pH levels, and the relationship is nonlinear.

Fertilization is not just fertilization Part 1

Unlike in natural waters, aquariums with fish mostly have a surplus of nutrients caused by feeding and the resulting fish excrement. Thus nitrates and phosphates in large (often too large!) quantities are available for the plants.
