ltimate Powerbox v2 (UPBv2 in short) is the successor of our renowned Ultimate Powerbox. You asked for more features, we kept our promise:
A USB3.1 Hub was added -you can switch on/off each USB port –, more power outputs, more dew heaters, α new stepper controller that can drive any stepper motor in the astronomy market as well as an expansion ports for future devices that will communicate with the UPBv2 Controller!
A new “face-lifted” enclosure comes with the Ultimate Powerbox v2.
If you are tired of carrying multiple power packs and dealing with a mess of power and data cables, our Ultimate Powerbox v2, a sophisticated power control unit, is the “Ultimate” solution. Our idea is an enclosure that makes a sufficient number of amperes available.
No cables disturb the movements of the mount and the instrument, only the main power cord and one USB data cord is attached to the Ultimate Powerbox from which branch off the other cables powering all devices.

We strongly believe that if you own a remote observatory or you do advanced imaging you are going to love this device!
Solid Input Socket
A large and solid DC input socket ensures that power cable is always secured in place. Socket is selected to provide all the power you need without voltage drops
More than 20A of total power
Controller has been designed to support up to 20 Amps of total input current.
* Please notice that Ultimate Powerbox v2 is not a powerbank. It requires an external power source (battery or PSU) to receive its power.
4 x 12V DC Power outlets for your equipment
Four powerful Smart Mosfet transistors provide “electric juice” to your precious equipment. Sophisticated short circuit and overload per port protections cut the power and report the incident into our software. Every Mosfet is capable to provide up to 7Amps of current.
Metal & good quality output sockets ensure that will provide all the juice you need and can secure in place your extension power cables
Built in Power Sensors
A precise voltmeter and an ampmeter (can measure up to 30A) measure and display in real time your power input. If the input is more than 14.5V the power is instantly cut off to protect your equipment.
Individual Current Meter per 12V port and Dew Heaters
Every 12V output and every Dew Heater Channel has an internal and independent digital current meter. You can view each port power consumption in the software.
Stand Alone Software
Our modern standalone software has a neat dark skin! Control all Ultimate Powerbox v2 features from this software. Receive metrics, View and zoom into graphs, name your outputs, tune every setting of your Ultimate Powerbox v2 quickly and easily.
Industrial 6 port powered USB3.1 SuperSpeed Hub
An industrial grade USB3.1 Hub controller ensures that this USB hub will work flawlessly from temperatures of -40°C to +80°C.
A neat feature is that each USB port can be switched ON/OFF individually by the software. A device was stuck and you had to replug the socket in the middle of a cold night? No problem! Just locate the port, click the ON /OFF switch in our software and you recycle the USB port . Simple as that!
At the back of the UPBv2 you can locate:
- 4 x USB 3.1 Super Speed ports
- 2 x USB 2 High Speed ports
Each USB port provides up to 2.5Amps. All USB ports include an electronic short circuit and overload electronic protection.
ASCOM 6 fully supported
Ultimate powerbox fully supports ASCOM6. In combination with our main program which acts as a server you can use our latest ASCOM 6.4 supplied drivers to:
- Control Stepper Motor (ASCOM Focuser)
- Pass environmental settings to supported software (e.g Sequence Generator Pro / MaximDL /NINA ) (ASCOM ObservingConditions)
- Switch ON or OFF all 12V outputs. (ASCOM Switches – NINA/ MaximDL)
Above screenshot shows ASCOM Observing Conditions and Focus Driver in combination with Sequencer Generator Pro
