USB_Dewpoint is a remote controller for heaters

Once your imaging session is running well, you often feel uncomfortable when humidy starts. Until now you had the solution to heat your tube or mirrors as much as you could. With major drawbacks like energy waste, creation of turbulence inside or in front of the tube, ...

USB_Dewpoint is a new way to answer humidity issues!

First it calculates in real time the dewpoint, thanks to ambient humidity probe close to your instrument. It also connects to 2 external temperature probes (attached to tube or mirrors) and compares these temperatures to the dewpoint. If temperatures are too close to the dewpoint, it heats in a smooth or aggressive manner. We can also call it a heating regulator. Second, if no heat required, USB_Dewpoint only uses 0.05 W to run. It connects to computer USB (or HUB 2.0 / 1.1) to operate remotely and can be operated manually or autonomously. It handles 3 outputs for heaters or any 12 V DC powered equipment (flat box, fans, ..) with 3x 24W output power.

Advantages and features at a glance:

  • One external humidity and ambient temperature probe for calculating the dew point in real time
  • Two satellite temperature probe (accurate to the 1/10th °C) attach to tube, front lens, mirrors
  • Three independent outputs to connect heaters or fans, up to 72 W (3x 24 W)
  • Outputs use duty cycles in the range 0 to 100%, per steps of 1% to 10%
  • It can run in automatic or manual modes with or without computer
  • Automatic mode avoids temperature of telescope parts to get too close to dew point. This margin above dew point can be set from 0 °C to 9 °C and independently for Output1 and Output2 (+Output3 if set)
  • Manual mode enables remote controlling/tracking using dedicated USB_TelescopeController software (and remote control through Wi-Fi)
  • All outputs uses high speed MOSFET transistors, NO energy waste
  • All outputs independently protected with fuses
  • Output 2 can be mirrored with output 3, to double available power
  • Output 3 (if not mirrored with output 2) can be used to remotely manage cooling fans
  • Red LED shows activity in real time
  • Lightweight, about 150 grams, and extremely compact (5 cm x 5 cm x 2.5 cm) in a high end black anodized aluminum casing
