Pegasus Astro Pocket Powerbox - PPB
Pegasus Astro Pocket Powerbox
The Pegasus Astro Pocket Powerbox, or PPB for short, is optimally suited for the astrophotographer on the go who wants less automation. This devices offers 10 amps of power, plenty of 12V outputs, two dew heater channels, a DSLR power output, and a sensor that monitors environmental factors such as humidity and temperature.
Four 12V DC Power Outlets
Built-In Voltmeter Input voltage is measured and displayed in real time by a precise voltmeter. If the input rises above 14V, power shuts off instantly to protect your equipment.
Camera/DSLR Output Features an 8V output sufficent for powering your DSLR camera. Different battery couplers for Sony and Canon DSLR and Mirrorless cameras are also provided.
10A+ Total Power This controller is designed to support 10 amps of total electrical current.
Standalone Operation The Pocket Powerbox operates directly out of the box as a standalone device. Just plug in the cables, set up the "autodew" function, and every time you boot the device, it will retrieve your settings. Therefore, you don't have to connect to a PC for every use if you don't want to.
Two Channel Duty Cycle PWM Dew Outputs Two Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) outlets provide power to your "thirsty" dew heaters. No longer will moisture blur your view and thus ruin a clear evening. These outlets can be controlled remotely using a laptop and provided software.
Auto PWM Adjustment Firmware can auto adjust the PWM Outputs by consulting the environmental sensor Dew Point reading. Just click “Auto” and let the Pocket Powerbox decide if it's time to switch on and precisely tune your dew heaters.
LED Indicators An LED blinks in patterns to warn users if critical power issues such as being over or under voltage. Furthermore, if this dim light bothers you, it can be switched off via the software.
Reverse Polarity Protection The Pocket Powerbox has been designed with reverse voltage polarity protection. This will definitely come in handy if you accidentally connect the main power supply in reverse polarity!
Hardware Watchdog If for any reason there is no response from the controller for two seconds, a hardware monitor will reset the device. This is a convenient feature in the unlikely event of a controller freeze. When you have a remote observatory, you need to be certain that everything works as expected.
