Bosch Commercial Controls Control Air 5600

The Bosch Control Air 5600 provides precision and intelligent alteration of system components for your energy efficient heat pump.


System Integration & Communication Bosch Control Air 5600 Bosch brings ease to Building Automation System optimization. The Bosch Control Air 5600 Digital Direct Controller (DDC) allows the technician to easily manage HVAC building functions from one workstation while simplifying installation and saving money. These optional factory-mounted controllers come preprogrammed with advanced software and are installed in the heat pump with the Unit Protection Module (UPM) to be job site ready. This means there is minimal effort in the field to install and configure the heat pump.(1) In addition, the Bosch Control Air 5600 comes equipped with energy-saving features preloaded into the system software (e.g. Economizer) which can be configured to monitor entry and leaving point levels and adjust system outputs in order to help optimize Building Automation System performance. The Control Air 5600 can also be field installed with our easy to order field install kits (coming soon).
