The Power Switching Electronics (PSE) component is configurable for up to 6 channels of power switching and monitoring. The unit is compatible with traditional communication interfaces. The PSE Switches unregulated power to the spacecraft bus components or payloads via opto-isolated control. It has provision for red limit (hardware circuit breaker) and yellow limit (software configurable) and can be integrated with the telemetry module.
|Stackable, extendable design—more channels, variable current limits|
|6U form factor|
|Local microcontroller logic allows “setpoint” control of output current|
|Modular interface card can be selected for Spacewire or RS-422 communications|
|Two design configurations
