EL - Elite Series Controls

• State of the art design
• Easier installation and serviceability
• Multi-level diagnostic capabilities
• M7® flow and temperature sensors - replaces failure-prone
  mechanical pressure/flow switch

The Elite Series (EL) family of hot tub control systems were designed using Balboa's patented M7® temperature and water flow sensing technology and a new universal control platform. These features increase the reliability, ease of installation and serviceability of the control. Innovative features include having output connectors on-board, which eliminates a maze of wires in the enclosure and ultimately reduces assembly time and margin for error.

Flexible and High Reliability
The systems have a plastic enclosure to eliminate water intrusion. Connectors are built on to the circuit board minimizing wires and simplifying service. The different models have controls for a single two-speed pump or an additional blower or pump. All models feature a convertible power supply that can be wired for 120 or 240 volts, a 1.0, 1.5, 4.0, or 5.5 Kw heater and support ML panels.

Designed for Easy Installation and Service
The EL family is based on a common universal control platform, which increases feature flexibility while reducing installation and configuration problems. The units incorporate Balboa's patented M7® temperature probe technology, which eliminates the more failure prone pressure switches and simplifies the installation process by not having to drill additional holes in the spa.

Proven Reliability
With over 2 million controls in the spas worldwide utilizing the M7® technology, the EL series of spa control systems are built using M7® and deliver maximum performance and satisfaction. The EL series is a universal control platform, increasing feature flexibility and reducing configuration headaches. With this combination of our patented M7® temperature and water flow sensing technology, BWG leads the industry in quality and reliability.
