DewBuster™ Controller Configurations
On the order form you may select from several configurations listed, or you may select "Custom Output Configuration" and specify what you would like in the comments section of the order form. Here are a few configurations with recommendations:

1 Left TC + 1 Right TC + 6 MP + 2 PWR
or
1 Left TC + 1 Right TC + 8 MP
The "default" configuration. Allows the main scope to be run on either the LEFT or the RIGHT Temperature Controlled output, whichever side is more convenient (sensor required). The opposite side's Temp Controlled output can be used on a piggy-backed scope (second sensor required) or as an extra Medium Power output (sensor not used on that side). The 6 Medium Power outputs should be enough for your eyepieces, finderscope, etc. and the two 12V Power jacks can power accessories (an optional RCA to Screw-Terminal Adapter is available). The 8 MP configuration is preferable if you do not plan to use the 12V outlets and/or need more Medium Power outputs.

1 Left TC + 1 Right TC + 4 MP + 4 PWR
This configuration is similar to above but provides more 12V outputs. This can be useful on Dobs where the DewBuster™ Controller serves as a Power Distribution Rail. Note that turning off the DewBuster does not turn off the 12V outputs. A Newtonian "Big Dob" DewBuster™ Controller is available with this configuration but without a power cord, it uses an RCA jack on the bottom for Power Input.
Custom Configuration

Your DewBuster™ Controller may be customized to suit your needs. Just select the closest configuration on the order form then contact me to request a Custom Output Configuration and specifying which jacks are different. The default arrangement is shown above. When I process your order I will e-mail you a diagram similar to the one above showing the custom output jack arrangement so you can verify it is exactly what you want.

I recommended leaving L1 and R1 unchanged because they are associated with the Left and Right Temp Controlled LED's and Sensor input jacks. However if you really need these relocated it can be done.

Please note that custom configurations only change how the output jacks are wired. Custom configurations do not change the internal components or the type of jack (RCA only). It is not possible to have more than the two Temperature Sensor inputs already provided. I can add additional "Temp Controlled" jacks but they will be wired in with the Temp Controlled jacks on that side. There is seldom however any need for additional Temperature Sensors as only large heaters or heaters on primary optics will benefit from temperature control.

Please note that 12V POWER JACKS  are un-switched, meaning they will remain powered when the controller is turned off or when the Battery warning light is on and the heaters have been shut off. The 12V POWER JACKS are not voltage regulated so the output voltage will be that of the power source feeding the DewBuster™ Controller. The 12V POWER JACKS are fused by the DewBuster™ Controller's main fuse (14 Amp on HD Power Cord models, 10 Amp on Newtonian models) so if your accessory device requires a smaller fuse then you will need to add one in your wiring.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you need assistance configuring your controller.
