Deep Space Products Mission Control 100

Small NUC form factor, dustproof, ventless, industrial-grade fanless observatory computer.

Unlike other available NUC-based computers, the MC-100 is completely fanless, protecting against dust or other debris in observatory applications. Removing the fan also removes a point of failure, creating a solid state solution with no moving parts that will outlast commercial NUCs and desktops. In addition, the use of passive cooling reduces the potential for vibration and eliminates all noise.

The single-interface heatsink provides optimal heat transfer, further improving cooling performance over other similar cases.

Measuring 142 x 62 x 107 mm ( 5.6” x 2.4” x 4.2”) and approximately 2.0 pounds, the MC-100 is small enough and light enough for discreet placement in space-constrained observatory environments including scope-top applications.

The one-piece extruded aluminum top creates an optimal surface for efficient heat dissipation. An EMI gasket reduces the risk of electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

Power can be supplied from any 12VDC power source with at least 3.0 amps. The power connector is a standard 2.5mm barrel connector.

Comes with Windows 10 Pro installed. We can provide additional services to install software sold by Deep Space Products or your own software that you provide to us.

We can also provide custom configurations, like the one seen below that was put together for the Mars Society's Mars Desert Research Station. Custom configurations can include complete custom scope-top systems with the computer and other observatory equipment, mountings, custom-length cables, etc. Contact us for complete custom systems.
