Please note that when considering the purchase of the Kendrick Dew Remover System, you will need to purchase one of our controllers along with the heaters. The heaters do not operate without one.
The Kendrick Dew Remover System has been the industry standard for effective dew removal and prevention on all optical surfaces where moisture condensation is a problem for many years now. Kendrick is the original innovator of these systems and we continue to lead the marketplace with our innovative product design and concepts. Our system has heaters for almost all the optical components used in amateur astronomy, several controllers with different levels of functionality and is the most sophisticated on the market.
Repeated field testing on many types of optical surfaces under many conditions and our thousands of satisfied customers has proven the effectiveness of our product over and over. Amongst other things, our system has these attractive features:
- Energy efficiency. Our controllers use almost zero power except for that required to illuminate the LEDs (which is VERY little!). Rather than use energy, our controllers actually conserve battery power by having programmable settings to control the heaters for precise application of heat. The systems are programmable with variable duty cycle, temperature variance, dewpoint variance or set temperature, depending on which controller you use.
- It is lightweight.
- High quality build. We use only the best quality components in our system, whether it be controllers or heaters. We do not compromise on the integrity or performance capabilities of our product.
- It will keep every optical surface you are using free of moisture in many different circumstances.
- High quality circuit boards in our controllers. We use "double sided" circuit boards. This gives our heater jacks extra strength to help prevent the solder breaks that will occur on single sided boards from the stress and strain of plugging and unplugging heaters.
