We listened and we added the new BP501/601 to the popular BP Series of spa controls. Based on the BP500/600, this new model can run up to a 5.5 kW heater (60Hz systems), supports an expander card to run another pump and has multiple panel jacks on the main board.

Includes Balboa's patented overheat Fault Detection for runaway pumps or stuck relays. The new M7 Plus software design incorporates patented technology using a microprocessor to intelligently monitor the hot tub water temperature and detect a runaway pump or stuck relays. If detected, the system will automatically attempt to shut the power off to the tub to prevent any overheating by trying to trip the GFCI in the circuit (per electrical codes). (BP501 only).

For serviceability, the new BP501/BP601 systems include a new single board configuration and have
Balboa’s new quick connect heater system – no more removing heater straps, just unplug the old heater
and plug in a new one.
