DewZap: Your Ultimate Dual-Channel Dew Heater Control Solution

Experience seamless and effective dew prevention during your night-long astronomical observations with DewZap. This compact, yet robust, dual-channel dew heater controller is designed to be the perfect accessory for avid stargazers, ensuring that dew does not interrupt your exploration of the cosmos.

DewZap: Precision Control with Dual Digital Outputs

Equipped with two independent digital RCA outputs, DewZap allows for precise control over your dew prevention needs. Each output is easily adjustable via a user-friendly knob, providing you with the flexibility to manage dew heaters, telescope cooling fans, or even a lightbox for enhanced functionality.

Effortless Monitoring with LED Indicators

DewZap simplifies monitoring with its built-in LED indicators, located on the controller's front panel. These indicators offer immediate visual feedback on the power levels being supplied to each dew control channel, making it straightforward to adjust settings as needed for optimal performance.

Advanced Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Technology

Incorporating cutting-edge digital electronics, DewZap supports full Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) for duty cycle control, allowing you to adjust the heater power from 0% to 100% with precision. This feature ensures efficient energy use while providing the exact amount of heat required to prevent dew formation.

High Capacity and Protection Features

With a total current capacity of 10 amps, distributed as 5 amps per channel, DewZap is equipped with powerful MOSFETs to ensure reliable performance without voltage drops. Additionally, the device is safeguarded against reverse polarity, enhancing its durability and user safety.
