channel duty cycle PWM outputs
Two Pulse width modulation (PWM) outlets are capable to provide
power to your “thirsty” Dew Heaters. No more moisture fuzzing your
equipment and destroying your clear nights. These outlets can be remote
controlled from your laptop using the supplied software.
Adjustment of PWM (Dew Outputs)
Firmware can auto adjust the PWM Outputs by consulting the
environmental sensor Dew Point reading. Just click “Auto” and leave to Intelli
Powerbox decide if it is time to switch on your dew heaters.
Ultimate powerbox fully supports ASCOM6. In combination with our
main program which acts as a server you can use our latest ASCOM 6.3 supplied
Control Stepper Motor (ASCOM Focuser)
Pass environmental settings to supported software (e.g Sequence
Generator Pro / MaximDL ) (ASCOM ObservingConditions)
Switch ON or OFF all 12V outputs. (ASCOM Switches)
brackets support Losmandy / Vixen Plate attachment
We provide an optional pair of brackets to
grab the Ultimate Powerbox device onto a Losmandy 3” or Vixen plate. Both
brackets can be screwed on the side of the controller and grab on your telescope.
Indications for power and failure states
Led can blink in patterns to warn you regarding important power
issues (e.g over or under voltage). Moreover light can be turned off using
the software. Our led is very dim but in case you don’t like it on you can
switch it off via the software.
Cables are included in the package
Four power cable of DC 2.1mm to 2.1mm male (1m) are included in
External one (1) meter temperature & relative humidity
sensor is included in the package. Know exactly the
environment conditions of your location. Temperature, humidity and dew
point measurements are displayed in the software.
and Exportable Graphs for Power and Environment values
Software logs all voltage, current, temperature and relative
humidity readings. All these plots are zoomable and easily exportable in
PNG image & CSV text format. Keep a full record of your night
to shutdown outputs
Choose the time and start timer to shutdown output ports when
you schedule it.
persistence outputs on startup
You can easily define which output should turn ON during
startup. The setting is stored in system’s EEPROM memory. A neat feature in
case of a power failure.
Controller is always connected to the USB Hub (7th USB port). No
extra cable needed. Just connect the USB Hub to your laptop and you are done.
Reverse Polarity Protection
Ultimate Powerbox has been design with a reverse
voltage polarity protection. It will definitely save your night if you
accidentally connect the main power supply in reverse polarity!
A hardware watchdog resets the device if for any reason there is
no response from the controller for two seconds. A neat feature in the unlikely
event of a controller freeze – when you have a remote observatory and you
need to be certain that everything works as expected.
Device is firmware upgradable to support future features and bug
