Table 7 Power budget for MAQRO

From: Macroscopic Quantum Resonators (MAQRO): 2015 update

Items & units LTP Power (W)
Inertial sensor front-end electronics (FEE) 40
UV discharging 8
Data & diagn. 30
Phase-meter 18
Laser ass. IR 45
Total (science mode) 141
Total (max.) 163
Total (min., only DMU) 30
  1. We distinguish between two operation modes: normal operation (science mode) and operation during the optional baking-out of the heat-shield structure.
