The MTQ200 magnetorquers are aimed at applications in 1-6U CubeSats. Offering one of the highest energy efficiencies in the industry, combined with fine-grained dipole-moment strength control, it allows precise pointing and rapid de-saturation of any reaction wheels in the satellite.
Two models are available in the MTQ200 series: The standard MTQ200.20 and the low profile MTQ200.10S, perfectly suited for vertical installation in limited space.
With a unique boost-mode, these magnetorquers can be pushed up to higher magnetic dipole moments for short duration manoeuvres, through sacrificing some energy efficiency. In return however, these magnetorquers will offer the fastest de-tumbing of any satellite in this mass class, allowing the users to start their operations in the shortest amount of time. They furthermore feature an inherently safe, passive detumbling mode, which works without any external controller.

The MTQ200 has been successfully flying on four missions ever since 2017.
The TRL of the MTQ200 is 9.
All MTQ200 are Flight models. You may use them as Engineering models.
We offer acceptance testing of the Flight Model as well as qualification testing.
