|Solar MEMS Technologies S.L.|
Electronics Sensor Product Number : SSOC-D60Sensor
Two accuracy axes. Field of view of ±60º. Accuracy better than 0.3º (3σ error). SPI or UART communication interfaces over RS-422. Dimensions about 50x30x12 mm. Useful in space and aeronautics. Engineering model available.
Sun Sensor on a Chip (SSOC), is based on MEMS fabrication
processes to achieve highly integrated sensing structures for high
accurate sun-tracking, positioning systems and attitude determination.
SSOC-D60 device measures the incident angle of a sun ray in both
axis. It includes a microprocessor that directly provides the sun light
incident angles and their derivatives without external calculations, via
The high sensitivity is based on geometrical dimensions of the design.
The use of a metal shield and a cover glass minimizes the ageing of
the device under high radiation levels. Every sensor is calibrated and
