Solar position sensor

Miniature Tri-Axis Solar Position Sensor

This solar position tracking device was specifically designed to be used in orbital conditions and to offer minimal footprint and weight.

Product advantages:

> Three light-sensitive cells placed on orthogonal axis made of a light-integrating lens.

> Calibrated photo-diode providing a known response to solar light's angle-of-incidence on the sensing cell.

> Integrated temperature sensor which can be used for compensation of diode response deviations with temperature.

Product highlights:

> Minimal footprint : 27.37mm x 26.32mm x 17.5mm​​

> Minimal weight : 15g

> Rugged aluminum casing

> Integrated temperature sensor

> Orbital temperature range (-40 to +125°C)

> Simple electrical interface (3x sensor out, 1x temp. out, 1x ground)
