Control Térmico de Naves Espaciales: 10. Suiches de Calor - Suiches Térmicos


SNC's Space Systems is the world’s leading supplier of thermal switches for spacecraft. These devices will passively open or close a thermal connection at a particular temperature set point, allowing for payloads with variable heat loads to be passively controlled to a precise temperature. These devices are provided as stand-alone switches, or combined with a thermal radiator to provide a complete thermal solution.
