Sputnix Orbicraft-Pro sun sensor SXC-SD-01 is design for use in nano-satellites missions. CAN interface provides single cable connection and chains of sensors.  

PSD Sun Sensor is a two orthogonal axes digital sun sensor. It generates the directional cosines of the angles of the direction to the sun, thus, it doesn’t require any calibration. Besides, the sun sensor’s size and weight are very small, as is his power consumption which is ultra-low.
Mount holes position is compatible with Sputnix solar panels.

Features:
•    Mid-size satellites design in light and small package
•    Ultra-low power CAN device
•    Built-in DC converter for constant consumption

Configuration:
•    Back cover removal to reduce weight 
•    CAN bus data rate
•    Telemetry frequency
