Low consuming sun sensor SX-SUNR-02 is intended for use in attitude determination subsystem to determine sun position. The principle of sensor is lightened PSD element data transformation into sun direction orth projections on sensor axes. Sensor should be installed on outer panels of spacecraft structure. As sensor's field of view is limited, a number of sensors should be installed in the satellite to obtain maximum field of view.
Field of view: cone with ±60° aperture
Power consu,ption: 0.05 W
Digital interface: CAN2B
