Product information

Temperature control
There are two important factors which affect the water temperature in the aquarium: firstly the room temperature and secondly direct sunlight. If the room temperature in summer increases significantly, it is important to check the temperature in the aquarium regularly. It should be 24-26 °C. Temperatures above 30 °C are a problem and can cause substantial damage to fish and plants. Furthermore aquariums should never be exposed to direct sunlight. The higher the temperature, the less effectively the oxygen, which is vital for the animals, dissolves.

Easy to install
The bracket of the cooling fan is placed onto the aquarium rim (up to max. 2.4 cm thickness) and fixed with clamp screws.

Cooling by evaporation
The JBL coolers for freshwater and marine aquariums cool down by 2-4 °C with the help of cross-flow fans. Due to the air flow the warm water evaporates at the water surface and thus generates evaporative cooling. This is comparable to evaporation cooling of a wet body part which is exposed to the wind.

Safety
The water cooler has a safety cover grid and is operated with a low voltage of 12 V.

FAQ
The cooler does not cool down the aquarium

With the JBL ProTemp Coolers, you achieve a cooling of the water temperature by 2-4 °C at an increased ambient temperature. To achieve this effect, you need to observe the maximum recommended aquarium volume of the product. Please note that the cooling effect only occurs during operation and that the system needs to have been running continuously for a few hours beforehand. The air flow needs to be directed across the entire width of the aquarium and occur at a 45 ° angle to the water surface. If only a part of the water surface is ventilated or the angle is set to 90 °, the desired effect will be lost or greatly reduced. The housing can be rotated 360 °.

The running noise of the ProTemp Cooler X is too loud. Why is that?

The cross-flow fan of the cooler 200X or 300X conveys a large amount of air to ensure sufficient evaporation on the water surface and thus cooling. As with a room fan, this is not possible silently, but can be quiet. To ensure quiet operation, the fan is mounted with a ball bearing for smooth running. If loud noises should occur during operation, please check the fastening on the aquarium edge / base. The vibrations are probably transmitted to the base and can be eliminated by small changes. If you notice strong vibrations on the housing, this can be eliminated by turning the housing.

Can I operate two coolers with one ProTemp CoolControl?

The ProTemp CoolControl is connected between the power supply and the ProTemp Cooler. It is therefore not possible to connect two coolers to one controller. Each Cooler needs its own controller.

Is rattling normal during operation?

The cross-flow fan provides an audible air flow that is uniform and must not rattle or clatter. However, if such a problem does occur, it could be an indication of damage from a fall or strong impacts on the enclosure wall. Check that the cross-flow fan is correctly mounted or if the housing is incorrectly assembled. If these are not the causes your ProTemp Cooler must be returned to the factory for inspection and repair by the JBL customer service.

Can the CoolControl also regulate the new ProTemp Cooler x200 and x300?

Yes, the CoolControl of the predecessor series can also regulate the new ProTemp Cooler x200 and x300 aquarium coolers
