mBox 5

mBox Black Series
mBox is a powerful control unit specifically designed for hydronic radiant cooling and heating systems with different terminals: ceiling panels, radiant floors, hydronic fan coils as well as air handlers and third-party VRV systems.

It is assembled with industrial grade components for commercial and residential high-end applications.

The unit regulates the building’s energy usage by activating energy sources (Heat pumps, chillers and boilers) and circulator pumps, modulating the radiant fluid flow through 3-way mixing valves and controlling the zone terminals with mZone modules. It features an unique technology to efficiently control the Domestic Hot Water (DHW).

mBox is based on a x86 architecture (Intel® Atom™ E3800) with Linux OS (Debian). It acts as the logical main unit, web server, gateway and communication module.

mBox fully integrates with the Messana web and mobile app (iOS and Android) providing a unique climate control platform (mControl) developed with more then 20 years of experience in radiant cooling and heating technology.
