Dew shield channel controller

Description

The Astrozap dual channel controller uses pulse width modulation technology. Each channel controls two outputs for a total of four outputs. Each channel is capable of a duty cycle from 5% on time at the low setting to 95% on time at the high setting.


The Astrozap dew controller is manufactured for operation on 12 volts DC and should never be operated with any other voltage. Total amperage capacity for all four outputs is 5 amps. The controller is supplied with a six-foot cord equipped with a cigarette lighter plug end. A 5-amp fuse is incorporated into the plug.


The Astrozap dew controller can be used to power our Flexi-Heat dew shields and Heat Bands. The RCA output connectors will accommodate other brand dew heaters.


The green LED indicates that the controller is getting power. The two amber lights by the outputs indicate the power level of each channel. The brighter the amber LEDs, the higher the duty cycle for that channel. When the controller is set to the lowest setting, it is effectively off. A two-inch Velcro strip is included for mounting the controller to a convenient area of your telescope mount.

          Comments about AstroZap Dual Channel Controller for Telescope Dew Heaters:

          I don't think I'd be doing much with my scope this time if year maybe at all around here without this. Here in lower TN it is very humid in the summer evenings and I was not even getting started good before getting fogged up. This is really the only thing I felt comfortable using on the scope since I'm new to this and do not feel like taking chances with this new telescope. I definitely would buy this again without hesitation. The only thing I would change is to make it cheaper but such it is with many things. Main thing is it works and works very well.

                    AstroZap dew products mean the end of dew issues. This controller makes it easy to connect - and control - up to four dew Zappers.

                        This worked great at 41 deg o.a.t., just recieved it at 5:15 p.m. 03-03-2010, got it hooked up with dew sheild abt 6:30 p.m., power tank lasted till 7:00p.m. on med heat, thats the bad thing, power tank dosen't last long on charge for running telescope or dew heater and takes 2 days to recharge power tank, I got my Ham Radio 120v to 12v regulated power supply to run dew heater, stayed out side till abt 9:30 p.m., I had to quit, I got real cold. 23 deg outside.
