Re: Computer max ambient temperature
Hope you do have a read through.
Forgot to mention that the heater doesn’t usually cycle itself on, in the daytime, since the sun warms up the tarp’s air pocket enough by itself, to keep any moisture absorbed in its environment – relative humidity % based on tarp inside temperature.
However, if it is pouring rain all day, getting really humid, it might cycle up, for 20 minutes or so. The BROAN Humidistat used in my “UNDewer”, has something like a +/- 10% “Dead band” (design) , so it will heat upto reaching a slightly higher RH, and let the tarp cool down to below the set point, so it doesn’t keep cycling on & off too often, between retriggers.
The scope optics, electronics, and even my AP-1200’s “dew attracting” cold steel counterweights, have been dry for almost a decade of operation – exposed under the tarp, right outdoors.
Hope it helps,
