CubeSat Reaction Wheels
Our high-performance RW400 reaction wheels are ideal for agile small satellite missions requiring accurate pointing.
The RW400 series reaction wheel is aimed at applications in 6 to 12U CubeSats or similar platforms. It comes in three models that offer 15, 30 or 50 mN.m.s of angular momentum storage respectively in both directions. Up to 12 mN.m of torque allow for rapid slewing operations with small satellites.
The RW400 series reaction wheel is a low mass, low power reaction control wheel, which allows CubeSats and other small platforms to control their attitude. The wheel is also used in the iADCS400- series of attitude determination and control systems.
The small envelope of 50 x 50 x 27 mm includes a dedicated controller, offering simple fire-and-forget control to the user.
