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 diseases.
Technical information
Incl. temperature sensor,
Modern graphic display with touchpad, sensor check during each calibration, error diagnosis after failed calibration, permanent display: pH actual/set value, sensor voltage, temperature, calibration reminder in days/hours, valve status, precision of measurement, set point adjustment: freely selectable or automatic calculation by means of auto pH, automatic temperature compensation during measuring and calibration, hysteresis freely selectable (upper and lower deviation from switching point), password key lock, alarm function pH (alarm range), alarm function temperature (range and set point alarm), selectable valve status, language selection: D/EN/F/NL/I/DK/E/P, reset function, universal power unit suitable for all common mains voltages worldwide.


Why a pH control?
If you want to automatise the CO2 supply, you can connect a pH computer (JBL PROFLORA pH-Control Touch) instead of a timer for the night shut-off. You’ll need to enter the carbonate hardness (KH) of your aquarium water once and then the computer will calculate the appropriate pH value, which is adjusted by adding CO2. Then the computer steers the solenoid valve and adds as much CO2 as necessary until the calculated or desired pH value is reached. The solenoid valve is then closed and opened again so that the pH value remains stable. The pH measurement of the water is done by a pH electrode, which is NOT included in the set and needs to be purchased separately. This ensures that you do not receive an old electrode in the set, but always a brand-new one!

Technical Data

FAQ
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 is the master password to unlock the keylock on the pH-Control Touch?

The password to unlock the keylock is “7422“. A printing error caused another code to appear in some instructions. We have since corrected this.

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.

Why does the controller permanently indicate a too high/low pH value? And why doesn’t the calibration work although the sensor is new?

The cause can probably be fixed quite easily. The protective cap of the pH sensor needs to be removed before insertion into the aquarium / before the calibration, to carry out control/calibration correctly. The protective cap serves as storage and “reactivation” of the sensor with the storage liquid. It has to be removed for use inside the aquarium and during the calibration because no water from outside can pass through. If the controller still displays an error, even after the removal of the protective cap, please read the FAQ with the several error messages in detail.
