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

Unlike other small form-factor computers, the MC85 is entirely fanless, protecting against dust or 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 mini PCs, laptops, and desktops in the observatory. In addition, passive cooling reduces the potential for vibration and eliminates all noise.

The single-interface heat sink provides optimal heat transfer, further improving cooling performance over other cases. The MC85 has a standard operating temperature range of -4°F to 158°F (-20°C to 70°C), sufficient for most environments, and can be special ordered with a greater range of -40°F to 185°F (-40°C to 85°C).

Measuring a scant 112 x 84 x 34 mm (4.4" x 3.3" x 1.3") and approximately 12.3 ounces (350 grams), the MC85 is small enough and light enough for discreet placement in space-constrained observatory environments, particularly in scope-top applications.

Power can be supplied from any DC power source with 7 to 20 volts (12 volts is fine) at 3.0 amps or more recommended. Peak system power consumption is approximately 1.25 amp. The power connector is a standard 2.5mm barrel center-positive connector.

The MC85 comes with Windows 10 Pro installed. In addition, we can provide additional services to install software sold by Deep Space Products or your software that you provide to us at no charge.

We can also provide custom observatory configurations. Custom configurations can include complete custom scope-top systems with the computer, power distribution, USB hub, equipment controllers, mountings, custom-length cables, etc.
