The Mission


Search Coil Magnetometer



SCM tri-axial search coils with fixture and connector.

Figure 1: SCM tri-axial search coils (engineering test unit) with its fixture
and its connector. The mass is 570 g.


Figure 2 (from Roux et al., 2008): SCM preamplifier box. The three upper cubes correspond to the three antennas' preamplifiers; the fourth one is for power regulation. They are manufactured in 3D technology. The electronics for the in-flight calibration is also shown on the PCb. The preamplifiers box size is 95 mm x 81 mm (100 with the mounting "ears") x 30 mm. The mass is 200 g.
