  • 4 stepper-motor valves
  • Up to 4 relay outputs
  • Wi-Fi module and web-server onboard
  • GSM as an option
  • Easy to install and connect
  • IP53 casing, optionally UV resistant for outdoor installation

  • Cost efficient, reliable and quiet solution thanks to the integration of the control unit and stepper motor valves
  • Operate the control unit by phone / tablet / touchscreen via browser (no application needed) and Wi-Fi or GSM
  • Receive an email in case of any alarms
  • Analyze your plant using the detailed event log showing all relevant parameters, including pressure, in– and output states, remaining times etc.
  • Control the water level in multiple tanks at different levels using the integrated pressure sensor plus an airlift or a diffusor
  • Program your process and menu on your own with the user-friendly PC tool MenuMaker and update it via USB, Wi-Fi or GSM
  • Store and select multiple programs for different plant types and sizes

The BonBloc® IoT integrates both, a powerful controller and quiet and reliable valves into a compact and easy to install device at a competitive price. It belongs to a new generation of control units devel-oped to meet the requirements of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Home.
The BonBloc® IoT comes with features as acoustic signaling of predefined conditions, USB, Wi-Fi or GSM for updates and non-volatile memory for eventlogs. To ensure continuous acoustic and optical signaling during power outage, a set of NiMH rechargeable batteries powers the alarm buzzer and the op-tional BonFlash LED alarm beacon. All electrical con-nections are implemented using cost-effective and universally compatible screw type terminals.
Instead of conventional solenoid valves the BonBloc® uses reliable stepper motors from the automotive industry. Why stepper motors? First, they are saving 95% of energy when compared to conventional valves. Secondly, our valves are much quieter than solenoid actuated valves.


The integrated webserver of the IoT controller series allows you to operate the treatment plant and to access all information with any browser.
Imagine, you’d like to service a plant and the owner of the building is not at home - simply access via Wi-Fi without entering the building.
Imagine, your plant has some troubles and you don’t like to go hundreds of kilometers - simply connect via GSM and operate, analyze and update the plant.


With the BonBloc® IoT there are no limits to your ideas. BONNEL’s PC software MenuMaker enables you to program even the most complex processes and menus without being a programmer. The IoT controller supports multiple, connected programs, calculations within the process, analogue water level evaluation, automatic switching-off of airlifts, user defined alarm conditions, timers, counters and much more.


The IoT platform can help you to create new business models.
Do you want to rent your plants? Block the plant automatically when no payment is arriving.
Do you want to reach remote areas? Control and monitor your plant remotely.
Do you want to do PPP or provide water treatment as service? Prove your plant is running well connecting sensors to the analogue input and transfer all data to telemetry servers in the cloud.

  • 4 motor-driven valves
  • 1 air inlet: 3/4“ 4 outlets: 1/2“
  • Easily programmable control unit
  • Up to 4 relay outputs
  • Water-level control for up to 2 tanks using pressure sensors
  • GSM-module as option

  • Outstanding price-performance ratio due to the integrated design and the absence of 230V solenoid valves
  • Easy to install and connect in your sewage treatment plant
  • Quiet valve operation
  • Saves approx. 95% energy compared to units using standard solenoid actuated valves
  • Water-level control without float switch (using a pressure sensor)
  • Up to 4 relay outputs offer a comfortable connection of accessory devices
  • Individually equipped (display, keypad, connectors) according to customer requirements
  • Sequence program can be easily created and modified with the PC software MenuMaker 2
  • Password protected operating levels and updateable firmware and software
  • IP54 casing, optionally UV-resistant for outdoor installation at your domestic sewage treatment plant

SBR wastewater treatment plants normally use a control unit and a valve module. These are installed separately and have to be connected using costly cables and connectors.
The BonBloc integrates both, the controller and the valves into a single compact and easy to install device.
Nevertheless we can offer you the well-equipped BonBloc® control unit for decentralized sewage treatment with its wide functionality for a competitive price.


Instead of conventional solenoid valves we use reliable stepper motors from the automotive industry. These new valves have been successfully tested since 2008 in real waste water treatment plants.
Why stepper motors? First, they consume energy only during opening or closing of the valve, therefore saving 95% of energy when compared to conventional valves. That is about 90kWh per year or 15€, and the trend is rising.
Secondly, our valves are, due to the smoother and slower movement, much quieter than solenoid actuated valves.


The control unit of the BonBloc® has already proved itself as a separate device in thousands of wastewater treatment plants all over Europe.
The extend of the system functionality can be tailored to match your individual needs.
We can offer you zero to six push buttons; anything from three LEDs to a graphical LCD display; from a simple sequence control up to a event-driven control system with water-level controls utilizing pressure sensors; analog / digital inputs, relay outputs, GSM-module and a handy memory stick for programming the control and the readout of the protocols - we are flexible!
The BonBloc® is also available with features, such as, acoustic signaling of predefined conditions, a sequence program permanently saved in the EEPROM and additional EEPROM memory for event-logging. To ensure continuous signaling during power outage or the function of the GSM-module, a set of NiMH rechargeable batteries can be supplied.
All electrical connections are implemented using cost-effective and universally compatible screw type terminals.

These new valves have been successfully tested since 2008 in real waste water treatment plants.Why stepper motors?

Secondly, our valves are, due to the smoother and slower movement, much quieter than solenoid actuated valves of other sewage treatment plant controllers.


Three buttons, three LEDs, an alphanumeric LCD display - regarding its operability our BonBloc® compact control unit for decentralized wastewater treatment plants leaves nothing to be desired. The device can be equipped with pressure and current sensing to monitor the compressor. Using the digital inputs up to three float switches or other signal sources can be connected (depending on equipment version). Up to four reliable relays can control the compressor and other devices (e.g. UV-lamp, dosing of chemicals). The GSM-module will reliably send SMS if any alarm occurs. The BonBloc® compact compact can even be remotely controlled and recalled by GSM. The BonBloc® compact control unit is also equipped with features, such as acoustic signaling of predefined conditions, a sequence program permanently saved in the EEPROM and a set of NiMH rechargeable batteries (or normal batteries) to ensure continuous signaling during power outage or the function of the GSM-module. All electrical connections are implemented using cost-effective and universally compatible screw type terminals.
