Attitude and orbit control systems
ISIS Magnetorquer Board
Innovative Solutions in Space（ISIS）
The ISIS MagneTorQuer board (iMTQ) is a PCB based 3-axis magnetic system. It is designed to provide maximum flexibility in placing actuators and magnetometer in a CubeSat structure. Providing actuation of 0.2Am2, the system can be placed in a stack or in between stacks in ISIS cubesat structures.
- ●Three-axis magnetometer
●Three actuators; two torque rods and one air core torque.
●Current sensors for each torque
●Temperature telemetry of actuators
●Nominal 0.2Am2 actuation per actuator
●Suitable to detumble up to 12U (~24kg) CubeSats
－CubeSat detumbling & magnetic attitude control
－Reaction wheel desaturation
●I2C control allows for use in any CubeSat bus
●Compatible with PC-104 mechanical interface
●Compatible with most CubeSat structures
