One Year On: Celebrating the Revolutionary "Adelie" greenBOX Control System Unveiled at Ligna

A year ago, at the Ligna show in Hannover, Germany, on May 15, 2023, Ecogate unveiled its latest innovation: the new generation of Adelie greenBOX control units. These systems have since set a new standard for on-demand, energy-saving dust collection technologies, earning them the label "revolutionary" and placing them "far more advanced than any other dust collecting system in the world, by a significant margin."

Adelie greenBOX 1 year

Unmatched Performance

The Adelie (internal code name) greenBOX generation is engineered for exceptional performance, with a single control unit capable of managing multiple dust collection systems. This capability is unmatched in the industry, offering unparalleled efficiency and flexibility.

greenBOX Nxt

Seamless Integration

Integration is central to the greenBOX’s design. The system harmoniously combines Ecogate Smart Gates and Power Master Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), creating a seamlessly integrated solution that enhances the effectiveness and responsiveness of dust collection.


Despite its advanced technology and superior performance, the greenBOX control system remains highly affordable. In fact, the cost of an entire greenBOX system is less than what one would typically pay just for the screen of a traditional PLC control system. This affordability makes it accessible to a wider range of industries, including small shops and educational institutions.

greenBOX Max

Market Reception and Impact

Since its introduction, the Adelie greenBOX Nxt and greenBOX Max control systems have been adopted across the globe, controlling 54 dust collection systems in the UK, USA, and Canada. One control unit is managing six dust collecting systems individually, with the highest number of gates per unit reaching 77. Howdens in the UK has implemented 11 systems, making it the largest corporate user.

Further details on these installations and their impact can be found on Ecogate's Success Stories page.

Expanding Reach

The new greenBOX systems are not only being used in traditional settings like factories but are also being ordered for innovative environments such as design labs, welding shops in colleges, and municipal woodworking shops. This expansion demonstrates the system's versatility and its growing importance in a variety of sectors.

greenBOX 12

Additionally, Ecogate continues to support its earlier models, such as the previous generation greenBOX Master and the time-tested greenBOX 12, which remain integral to many installations.

The Preferred Choice

Thanks to its superior performance, seamless integration, and affordability, the new generation Adelie greenBOX has become unquestionably the best-selling on-demand control system worldwide. Its success reflects Ecogate's commitment to innovation and its ability to meet the needs of a diverse client base.

As we continue to advance and expand the reach of the greenBOX control systems, Ecogate remains dedicated to providing solutions that not only meet but exceed the expectations of industries looking to enhance efficiency and reduce environmental impact.
