The BL121 Swimming Pool Controller is a complete system designed for maintaining swimming pool, hot tub, and spa disinfection water quality. The BL121 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. The other version is a panel mounted version with a bypass flow cell. The bypass flow cell allows for calibration and maintenance of the probe without having to shut down the recirculation pump. Additional features of the BL121 include LED indicators for dosing, meter status and service, real-time graph display, programmable alarms, and password protection
The BL121 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. The BL121 uses a multiparameter digital HI1036-1802 probe that incorporates pH, ORP, and temperature sensors along with a matching pin. All readings are measured within the probe and the data transferred to the controller by a digital connection. Both a digital connection and matching pin provide for stable, reliable measurements. Without these two components, electrical noise from recirculation pumps and ground loops can interfere, causing erratic readings and premature probe failure. The BL121 has two built-in peristaltic chemical feed pumps that are proportionally controlled with adjustable flow rates. One of the pumps is used to dose acid 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. A pool with a fixed concentration of chlorine will show a decrease in ORP as the pH of the water increases.
The BL121 utilizes 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 will prevent chemical wastage and having a higher chlorine concentration level than desired.
For compliance monitoring, the BL121 has a built-in datalogger. Measurement readings are logged every 10 seconds with a new log starting for each new day or when the instrument is calibrated. Logged data include pH, ORP, and temperature values, last calibration data, setup configuration, and any event data. 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.
Additional features of the BL121 include LED indicators for dosing, meter status and service, real-time graph display, programmable alarms, and password protection.
The BL121 is an all-in-one solution for automatic control of pH and chlorine levels in swimming pool, hot tub, and spa water.
The controller is available in one of two configurations: an in-line model which allows for direct installation of the probe and chemical injection fittings into existing piping (BL120-10) or a panel mounted system with a bypass flow cell (BL120-20). The bypass flow cell allows for calibration and maintenance of the probe without having to stop the recirculation pump.
Three Display Modes
The versatile display of the BL121 allows for three display modes. The LCD can display all three parameters at one time, a 3-second cycle of single parameters, or a real-time plot screen with options for parameter selection, zooming, and log recall.

Connections & Display
The versatile display of the BL121 allows for three screen modes. The LCD can display all three parameters at one time, a 3-second cycle of single parameters, or a real-time plot screen with options for parameter selection, zooming, and log recall.
Programmable Alarm System
Hanna controllers allow users to enable or disable the low and high level of alarms for all parameters. When an alarm is activated, all dosing will stop. The alarm system also offers overdosing protection if the value is not corrected within a specified time interval then the meter will go into alarm status.
Multicolored LED Indicators
The BL121 offers multiple LED indicators for status, servicing, and pump operation. The STATUS LED changes color based on operational state; green when setting are in range, yellow when user intervention is required, and red for problems. The SERVICE LED indicates any alarms and process errors experienced by the controller.
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 include pH, ORP, and temperature values, last calibration data, setup configuration, and any event data. Each log is saved as a .csv file for easy transfer.
For review and storage the users can easily transfer data to a PC using a flash drive and the USB port.
Hanna’s BL120 controller features 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.
