The CubeSpace GEN2: CubeWheel - CW0162 is a robust reaction wheel with built-in driver and interface electronics. It has improved vibration tolerance to withstand demanding mission requirements.
This robust design is achieved through high-load space-rated bearings coupled with precision balancing. Integrated into each wheel is a radiation-tolerant electronic drive circuit and speed controller.
The ease of use, together with the robust design, makes the CubeWheel a highly suitable wheel for satellites with strict requirements and reliability.
Depending on the application, a satellite may benefit from either 3 wheels mounted orthogonally, or 4 wheels in a pyramid configuration. Typical use cases of CubeWheel's are:
- 3 wheels – nadir, sun and inertial pointing
- 4 wheels – target tracking and fast slew manoeuvres.
Currently, the price of the CubeSpace GEN2: CubeWheel - CW0162 in a pyramid configuration is $37 200,00.
Despite its robust nature, each wheel is precisely balanced to enable high precision and stability ADCS systems.
