Pegasus Astro Ultimate Powerbox power distribution device

4 x 12V DC Power outlets for your equipment

Four powerful Smart mosfet transistors provide “electric juice” to your precious equipment. Sophisticated short circuit and overload per port protections cut the power and report the incident into our software. Every mosfet is capable to provide up to 7A of current.

Built in Power Sensors

A precise voltmeter and an ampmeter (can stand up to 30A) measure and display in real time (200 measurements per second) your power input. If the input is more than 13.8V the power is instantly cut off to protect your equipment.

Individual Current Meter per 12V port

Every 12V output has an internal and independent current meter. You can view every port power consumption in the software.

More than 20A of total power

Controller has been designed to support up to 20A of total current.

Stand Alone Software

Our modern standalone software has a neat dark skin! Control all Ultimate Powerbox features from this software. Receive metrics, View and zoom into graphs, name your outputs, tune every setting of your Ultimate Powerbox quickly and easily.

Industrial 6 port powered USB2 High speed Hub

An industrial USB2 port chip ensures that this USB hub will work flawlessly from temperatures of -40°C to +80°C. A nice feature is that USB Hub can be turned ON/OFF by the software. Moreover, USB port No 6 never turns off and supports up to 3A of current. A very handy feature if you have a Compute Stick and you want to get a 5V input power. All USB ports include a unique short circuit and overload electronic protection.

Stepper Motor Controller

A stepper motor controller will precisely move your focuser. Connect a Pegasus Unipolar Motor or a fully compatible Rigel, Robofocus or Moonlight Motor. Backlash compensation is already implemented in the firmware and can be enabled, tuned or disabled from inside the software. A fully ASCOM6 focuser driver is already available.

Two 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.

Auto Adjustment of PWM (Dew Outputs)

Firmware can auto tune 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.

External brackets support Losmandy / Vixen Plate attachment

We provide an optional bracket to attach the Ultimate Powerbox to a Losmandy or vixen plate. The bracket can be screwed on the top of the device and grab on your telescope.

Led 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 the brightness you can switch it off via the software.

All Power Cables are included

Four power cable of DC 2.1mm to 2.1mm male (1m) are included in the package.

External Environmental Sensor

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.

Zoomable  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.

USB2 Connectivity

Controller is always attached in 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!

Watchdog Feature

A sophisticated watchdog resets the device if for any reason there is no response from the controller for two (2) seconds. A neat feature in the unlikely event of the microcontroller freeze – when have a remote observatory and you need to be sure that everything works as expected.

Upgradable Firmware

Device is easily firmware upgradable to support future features and bug fixes.

Compact Size and Lightweight

A blue anodised aluminium compact sized box enclose the controller board. Size is 13cm x 10cm x 10cm
