JBJ introduces the TRUE TEMP digital heater controller and titanium heating system. The TRUE TEMP is the most complete heating system to date with the most advanced features that set it apart as the leading heater for professional hobbyists.

Our digital microprocessor boasts amazing +/- 0.5 F accuracy, a calibration setting, indestructible titanium heating element with thermal shut off, smart memory chip, LED heating indicator, safety guard, remote temperature probe, and a large constant LED display of the current temperature.

Maintaining the correct temperature for tropical fish may be the single most important factor for a successful aquarium. Since fish do not have the ability to regulate their own body temperature, it is crucial that we can provide consistent water temperatures with minimal fluctuations.

Majority of fish cannot cope with stress from constant temperature fluctuations, which leads to a compromised immune system. This increases the probability of avoidable diseases, parasites, and bacterial infections.

ADVANCED FEATURES:

100% DIGITAL OPERATION
Don’t be fooled, some controllers still incorporate analog dials and knobs without the precision accuracy of TRUE digital controllers. Our advanced microprocessor constantly reads and displays the correct temperature to a tenth of a degree with a large LED display. Easy push buttons make setting your desired temperature simple and easy.

TITANIUM
The perfect submersible element for fresh or saltwater aquaria. Virtually indestructible with the benefits of fast heat transfer without any corrosion. Integrated thermal shut off and out of water safety mechanism.

REMOTE TEMPERATURE PROBE
Most heaters have an integrated temperature probe within the same heating element. This can lead to false readings and premature ON/OFF cycles. The TRUE TEMP digital controller is equipped with a remote quick disconnect temperature probe that can be placed up to 5 feet away from the heating element for a comprehensive temperature measurement of the total volume of water. Quick disconnect temperature probe grants easy replacement without the need to replace the entire controller in the event it fails.

SAFETY GUARD
All titanium heating elements are securely placed inside our safety guards that protect you and your livestock from the heating core. Our flow thru design grants continuous water contact without interruption.

CROSS REFERENCE
Have you ever noticed that majority of heaters cannot be calibrated. Often times, errors do occur during the calibration process. The ability to cross reference ensures your temperature is accurate and always correct.

SMART MEMORY CHIP
An integrated smart memory chip will restore the previous temperature set point and calibration to the last stored setting once the power returns after a failure. This alleviates having to manually reset settings forever.

JBJ Tru-Temp Controller

Installed easily in my 30 gallon tank-heater at mid depth on left side and probe directly opposite at same level. I set at 78 and it fluctuates perhaps 1 to 1 1/2 degrees on digital readout, occasionally to 2 degrees. An independent thermometer check leads me to believe that I'd be chasing a ghost to correct it. In use just 10 days now and corals flourish and invertebrates and single urchin, anemone, and Maroon Clown all fine.If all stays same I'm very satisfied

Not what I expected

This was not what I paid for. 500W heater element failed at 15 months JBJ personal not helpful. They recommended "buy a new one". Last week (18 months old) temp probe failed. I spent the big bucks for what I thought was going to be high quality. It most certainly is not! 150 gal marine tank now being heated by 8 year old Won heater. Geez, what are you supposed to do to protect your livestock investment?

A happy camper.

What a beautiful package. The heater works great just as advertised what makes it special for me is the magnet holders a breeze to set up. The controller makes the whole thing work set it and forget it.

Bad Sensors

I run a maintenance business and one of my clients had only had this heater for less than a year. Like others it totally failed and their reef crashed due to cold temperatures (hence why they called me to begin maintaining their aquarium). After getting the unit back to my shop the heater coil was completely broken and inoperable. So I decided to test the control unit. It would cut on and off at the specified temperature that I set on it, however after using a digital medical thermometer as well as a standard glass aquarium thermometer (both it and the medical digital were within .5°F of each other) the JBJ probe was reading 5 full degrees OFF to the high side. After reading through other reviews and my double, triple and quadruple checking of the control unit I would advise people to stay away from these units where stability matters.

GREAT TEMP CONT WHEN IT WORKS

UNIT WORKS GREAT BUT HAS A SHORT LIFESPAN, BETWEEN 12 -18 MONTHES. I AM ON MY FORTH ONE IN A LITTLE OVER 5 YEARS. SOMETIMES THE UNIT FAILS AND SOMETIMES THE TEMP SENSOR FAILS. SENSORS CAN BE REPLACED BY CONTACTING JBJ FOR A PRICE. EVEN THOUGH THIS UNIT FAILS, I HAVE NOT FOUND A BETTER ONE.

Great Heater!!!!!

I just upgraded my tank with new LEDs so out with the chiller. Which this meant I would need a heater. It was very easy to setup and after plugging it in I felt there was no way that temp could be right. I then went and bought an old school thermometer after leaving it in my tank for a few minutes I pulled it out and the temp was correct. I didn't have to calibrate it or anything. Well wrth the money.
