DTA - Rotary Actuator Product Range
- Start date:
SENER has developed in a co-funded progam with ESA a fully European family of rotary actuators for space applications, such as solar array drivers, optical mechanism drives, deployment mechanisms, antenna pointing mechanisms and Electrical ProPulsion Modules (EPPM) actuation.
DTA product range are versatile components that can be used on applications as:
- Deployable radiator
- Electrical propulsion module
- Generic antenna mechanisms
- Antenna reflector boom without tracking
- Antenna reflector boom with tracking system
- Large deployable structures
- Reconfigurable appendages or payloads on board telecom platforms.
The space qualifi ed DTA rotary actuators design is based on the heritage actuator concept developed by SENER and successfully flown on the European Space Agency missions SENTINEL-1, SENTINEL-2 and GAIA.
DTA product range main component are the SENER-developed SUM stepper motors family; with a large selection of options available. Different drive output, sensors and accessories are also available; like RF-waveguide, connectors and harness management hardware.
DTA 200 series is an enhanced evolution of the currently qualified DTA 100 series products, with improved technical performances for the most demanding applications on the space field.
