THRUST BALANCE - NEW CONCEPT

Home » Thrust balance

DESCRIPTION

The balance allows to measure the thrust of  plasmic thrusters.

The balance is inside a vacuum chamber. The electronic rack to control and acquire measurement is outside the vacuum chamber.

The balance is used to qualify thruster for long time tests.

  • Based on a null deflection suspended pendulum
  • Design derived from proven previous instrument
  • Work environment Thermal vaccum (10-4 mbar)
