CubeSat Solar panel DHV-CS-10


Solar panels have been tested in qualified laboratories for space applications, as well as solar cells are fully qualified. Different mechanical and electrical designs can be manufactured to meet with subsystems on board. The PCB substrates are made in conformance with ECSS-Q-ST-70-11C. Solar panels are manufactured following the standard ECSS-E-ST-20-08C.
DHV-CS-10 products are solar arrays for 1U CubeSats, there are available top, bottom and side versions. The solar cells are Azur Space 3G30C, qualified solar cells for space applications with 30% efficiency using triple-junction technology. Two solar cells are connected in series to get about 4.8 V. Magnetometer and temperature sensor are integrated on the PCB. Wires and connectors are included.
Availability: 4 – 5 weeks
