1U Cubesat Solar Panel X or Y Axis Facing

Quick Overview

The Aphelion Cubesat solar panels utilize flightproven, high efficiency 30.5% triple junction solar cells and a reliable bonding technique. The radiation hardened cells come with cover glass and an antireflective coating. The solar panels are available in 1U, 2U, 3U, 6U, and custom configurations providing up to 150W, with panels up to 3U containing one series string and the 6U panel containing two series strings of cells providing up to 22V output. A temperature sensor and integrated light sensor allows panel monitoring and diagnostics.

Features

Radiation tolerance provides minimum 2 years lifespan in LEO


Cells qualified according to ESA and Ru479.0061JT standards


Built-in LM76 temperature sensor and rough sun sensor


Thermal design considerations prevent warping and improves reliability


IPC 610 Class 3 Assembly


God plated and shielded FR4 PCB


Wiring harness included


Individually tested with outgassing/random vibration qualification




Electrical Interface

The solar panels utilize Hirose 1.25 connectors for both power and digital interfaces, with a 4-pin connector for power output and an 8-pin connector for the temperature and light sensor. This configuration is used up to a 3U panel. A 6U configuration with two strings provides two sets of 4-pin connectors for power output.




Qualification and Options

The panels have passed thermal cycle, thermal vacuum, outgassing, and random vibration tests. Each unit is tested prior to shipment and packed in a clean container under ISO Class 5 environments. Contact Aphelion for alternate configurations and interfaces, as well as to inquire for compatibility with other products.




Direct Integration with Aphelion Modules

The PBM is an integrated EPS and OBC solution designed for mission-critical, volume constrained environments. Features such as maximum power point tracking, individually switchable and monitored output rails, high discharge battery compatibility, and a high-performance Cortex M4 processor allow the PBM to be adaptable for multiple mission scenarios.
