Kendrick DigiFire 10 Temperature Sensing Digital Controller
Are you tired of dealing with dew on your optics? The Kendrick Dew Remover System has been the industry standard for effective dew removal and prevention on all optical surfaces where moisture condensation is a problem. Kendrick is the original innovator of these systems and they continue to lead the marketplace with innovative product design and concepts. The Kendrick Dew Systems have heaters for almost all the optical components used in amateur astronomy.
At the heart of the Kendrick Dew Remover System, is the controller and the new DigiFire 10 Temperature Sensing Digital Controller is the latest innovation feature pure digital output. The Kendrick DigiFire 10 begins by being energy efficient, with variable settings to allow maximum conservation of battery power and precise application of heat. The DigiFire 10 system is programmable with variable duty cycle, temperature variance, dewpoint variance or set temperature, depending on which controller you use.
But Kendrick quality doesn't stop there. The Kendrick DigiFire 10 Temperature Sensing Digital Controller is not only light in weight, but heavy in quality. Kendrick's uses only the best components in their dew heating system and controllers. They do not compromise on the integrity or performance capabilities of our product. When it says Kendricks, you know it will keep every optical surface you are using free of moisture in many different circumstances.
Kendrick DigiFire 10 Temperature Sensing Digital Controller Features
100% digital operation with 6 outputs, two of which are programmable for temperature sensing. Set these two outputs to keep your chosen optical surfaces anywhere from 1° to 10°C above ambient temperature. (Only one optic sensor is included with the controller. Ambient air sensor in included). The remaining 2 programmable outputs can be programmed to operate on duty cycle. Or, use all 4 on duty cycle. All four outputs are programmable in duty cycle if you choose, from 0 to 100% in 10% increments. Low voltage cut-off. Protect your battery from being to deeply discharged Run 12 VDC accessories or heaters from the 2 dedicated 12 volt outputs. For example, run cooling fans, computerized setting circles, DewGuard secondary mirror heaters etc.
Firmware upgradeable and RFI (radio frequency interference) free. Absolutely necessary if you are into digital imaging! Includes Pulse Width Modulation duty cycle control and reverse polarity protection. Temperature sensors are calibrated. Combined errors from uncalibrated ambient and optic temperature sensors can be significant.
Includes one ambient temperature sensor, one optic sensor and a velcro attachment so that the controller can be attached to scope, tripod, etc. An optional lanyard (#2002-LNYRD) as well as a vinyl carry pouch (#2001-CP) is also available for anyone preferring to hang their controller or protect it from scratches, dings and nicks.
