MASS

Magnetometer + Accelerometer + Sun Sensor

MASS sensor includes one accelerometer, one magnetometer, and one sun sensor to measure angle of sun-ray, DNI solar radiation and azimuth and elevation position of the device. This information is very useful to develop solar tracking controllers, with no other devices. Its characteristics make it a suitable tool for high accurate sun-tracking and positioning systems, with low power consumption and high reliability. MASS sensor has been designed with a unique and novel own technology based on MEMS fabrication processes to achieve high integrated sensing structures at low cost.
