Under ESA contract number 20945/07/NL/IA, Alter Technology developed a Precision Test Tool for Angular Sensor´s qualifications for Space Applications. This modular system allowed the characterization and qualification testing of 16bit Contactless angular sensors prototypes for telecom satellites’ extended life mechanisms.
Angular sensors (AS) are position devices that provide the displacement in angular degrees concerning a fixed point or an arbitrary reference. The main performances to be measured are accuracy, hysteresis, measuring range, among others. These parameters must be measured before, during, and after applying environmental treatment during the qualification test campaign.
