greenBOX 12

The greenBOX 12 is the most cost-effective control unit for dust/fume/mist collection systems with up to 12 workstations. The minimum airflow is maintained in one duct zone. It can be combined with the Power MASTER VFD to regulate fan speed or it can start/stop the fan. 


The greenBOX 12 is loved by our customers for its simplicity, reliability, and flexibility. It is inexpensive while sharing a lot of advanced features with the other greenBOX control units. No wonder that with continuous improvements this unit is in production for more than fifteen years!


The greenBOX 12 is based on an industrial-embedded Freescale processor. It is inexpensive while sharing a lot of advanced features with other greenBOX family members. It can manage dust/fume/mist ventilation systems with up to 12 workstations/gates. Ecogate Systems controlled by a greenBOX have evolved, and they are now established as the lowest-cost dust/fume/mist collection systems to own and operate safely.


greenBOX® 12 can manage all types of industrial exhaust ventilation systems in metalworking, woodworking, welding, oil mist, fume, pharmaceutical, food processing, and other industries.

If preferable, remote access can be achieved by using an optional Windows notebook. The greenBOX 12 uses an embedded industrial Freescale processor, which makes the unit reliable and very cost-effective. Users can update the software by using a Windows notebook with Ecogate's Setup and Monitoring software (software is available for free with greenBOX 12).


Compatible with Ecogate Standard gates, Ecogate sensors, and with Power MASTER VFDs. The gates are connected in a star wiring configuration by using Ecogate STANDARD cable.



Minimal airflow is managed in the duct system.

System setup file can be backed up to Windows notebook.

As an insurance policy, the greenBOX 12 can be set to use the “Cleaning” function (all gates open, fan at full speed; in regular intervals, deep cleaning one duct zone at a time, cleaning at system stop).

Fan On delay, Fan Off delay function.

Gate On/Off delay function.

Monitoring of the Fan total static pressure.

“Compensation” option will increase suction if a particular gate is active (available per each gate; settings are in percentage).

Selectable function if gates should open or close at system stop (open gates are preferable for safety, but sometimes closing gates might be preferable if moisture entering the factory creates problems).
