pH/ORP Swimming Pool and Spa Controllerswith Built-In Chemical Feed Pumps and Hanna Cloud Connectivity

Hanna Swimming Pool and Spa Controllers are complete systems designed for maintaining swimming pool, hot tub, and spa disinfection water quality. Each model is available in two configurations. The basic version is the in-line model which allows for direct installation of probe and chemical injection fittings into existing piping. A panel mounted version with a bypass flow cell is also available. The bypass flow cell allows for calibration and maintenance of the probe without having to shut down the recirculation pump.

For BL121 and BL123 models, three 4-20 mA analog outputs are available for users that wish to connect to an external chart recorder or datalogger to monitor any of the three measured parameters. The outputs are scalable, offering increased flexibility and better resolution as needed.

BL122 and BL123 also offer the added benefit of allowing remote connection and access to devices via the Hanna Cloud web app. Hanna Cloud application is compatible with most modern web browsers.

General Features Image

General Features

Hanna Swimming Pool and Spa controllers are an all-in-one solution for automatic control of pH and chlorine levels in swimming pool, hot tub, and spa water.

Peristaltic chemical feed pumps

Peristaltic chemical feed pumps

These controllers are equipped with two peristaltic dosing pumps with replaceable chemical resistant tubing that are proportionally controlled with adjustable flow rates. One of the pumps is used to dose acid or base while the other is used to dose chlorine. The effectiveness of the available chlorine, as determined by ORP, is inversely related to the water’s pH value.

Multicolored LED indicators

Multicolored LED indicators

Multiple LED indicators for status, servicing, and pump operation are offered. The STATUS LED changes color based on operational state; a green LED means the water is within the desired parameter ranges, a yellow LED means that the controller needs attention, and a red LED identifies a problem in the system such as high and low pH, ORP and/or temperature readings. The SERVICE LED indicates attention is required by a service technician.

Programmable alarm system

Programmable alarm system

Enable or disable the low and high level of alarms for all parameters: pH, ORP, and temperature. When an alarm is activated, all dosing will stop. The alarm system also offers overdosing protection in that if the value is not corrected within a specified time interval then the meter will go into alarm status.

Automatic logging

Automatic logging

The readings for each parameter are automatically logged every 10 seconds. A new log is started each time the instrument is calibrated or at the start of a new day. Logged data includes pH, ORP, and temperature values, last calibration data, setup configuration, and any event data.

GLP

GLP

Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) refers to a quality control function used to ensure uniformity of probe calibrations and measurements. GLP stores pH/ORP calibration information including date and time for pH/ORP sensors

BL121 and BL123 analog outputs

BL121 and BL123 analog outputs

BL121 and BL123 controllers offer three 4-20 mA outputs. Each output can be disabled or connected to an external recording device. Each of the three measured parameters (pH, ORP, and temperature) can be assigned to an analog output where the current signal will be proportional to the measured value. For more flexibility and better resolution, the analog output can be scaled; users can define any two points within a parameter range to correspond to the analog output span. For example, the controller assigns 0 pH to 4 mA and 14 pH to 20 mA as a default. The user can adjust the pH range to assign pH 6 to 4 mA and pH 8 to 20 mA. This adjustment allows better resolution in the range of interest.

USB connectivity

Password protected

Password protected

These controllers feature a password protection solution that offers restricted access to calibration, setup, and review of logged data. The password can be set and enabled/disabled during general setup of the instrument.

Automatic two-point calibration

Additional Features

Automatic proportional pump control

Based on the sensitivity of the process to chemical addition, these controllers allow the user to adjust a proportional band. This setting determines the amount of time that the pumps are dosing as a percentage of the deviation from the set point. For example, a large body of water will use a small proportional band; having a small band (e.g., 0.1 pH) will ensure the pumps are dosing more often when the reading is close to the set point. For smaller bodies of water such as hot tubs or spas, it is more useful to set a larger proportional band (e.g.,1.0 pH); when the reading is close to the set point, the amount of time that the dosing pump is on is minimal to avoid large swings of pH or ORP. This valuable feature allows for very fine control in maintaining the desired set point.

Adjustable flow rate

The dosing pump flow rate is adjustable from 0.5 to 3.5L/h. Larger bodies of water require more chemical to be dosed than small bodies since it takes more chemical to see a change in the reading. The adjustable flow rate, like the proportional band, allows for better control in maintaining a desired set point.

ORP (Chlorine) dosing consent

Both pH and ORP meters are commonly used with swimming pools. With chlorine disinfection there is an inverse relationship between pH and ORP. As the pH level increases, the ORP level decreases. These meters utilize a dosing consent feature that will not dose chlorine until the pH value is first corrected since it is possible to have a low ORP value even though there is sufficient chlorine. The dosing consent feature prevents waste of chemicals and avoids having a higher chlorine concentration level than desired.

Acid and chlorine tank level inputs

These controllers allow for a connection to an optional level controller. This input is used to disable the dosing pumps when there is no chemical left in the reservoir tank.

Hold input

It is possible to connect a flow switch mounted in-line or a mechanical relay that is connected to the recirculation pump power source to the hold input of these controllers. With no flow or when no power is applied to the recirculation pump, the hold circuit will disable the dosing pumps. This will prevent any dosing of chemical when there is no movement of water in the system.

Multiparameter Digital pH, ORP, Temperature Probe

Multiparameter Digital pH, ORP, Temperature Probe

The HI1036-1802 is a digital combined probe that measures pH, ORP, and temperature. This probe also incorporates a potential matching pin. The matching pin is considered the “earth ground” connection and is used to prevent ground loop effects from causing erratic readings and damage to the system.

The HI1036-1802 with a Hanna Swimming Pool and Spa Controller helps to promote the health and safety of pool and spa water.
