CubeSat Magnetorquer SatBus MTQ

CubeSat Magnetorquer SatBus MTQ

Magnetorquers „SatBus MTQ“, designed by NanoAvionics, are a set of two (X and Y-axis) magnetorquer rods and one air core Z-axis magnetorquer coil which are mounted on a PC/104 form factor PCB to enable nanosatellite attitude control.

The system is designed as a part of NanoAvionics “SatBus“ nanosatellite platform but can be used with any third party ADCS controllers that can provide 3 H-bridge PWM controlled voltage outputs to each torquer coil.
