Summary

The Reaction Wheels Module is an extension to the ADCS system to increase accuracy and minimize reaction time. Three orthogonally placed momentum wheels (REWL-50 from Space Inventor) provide precise pointing. Built-in circuit protection with fault handling is able to detect overcurrent and short-ciruit and immediately cut-off voltage from damaged parts.
