Mx152 Pyro Board
The Mx152 Pyro Board is an optional accessory that plugs onto the backside of an Mx150 Kate 2.0 transmitter and adds deployment and staging capability. An apogee event can be fired with GPS precision even at altitudes that reach into space! In fact, all deployment and staging events are triggered by GPS data. However, the accelerometer, gyro, barometric pressure sensor, timer and even manual command can also be used as back-up redundant triggers. All events can be configured with the Mx120 Receiver. No computer is needed. The receiver has an interactive electronic Go/No-Go checklist that guides the user during setup prior to launch.
Please note: The AUX pyro channel and the SSR output are not supported at first release. The hardware is fully capable but the firmware and user interface will be updated in mid 2020 to support these features.
Mx152 Option-10 Long Skinny Mounting Option
Mx152 Option-10 is a "long skinny" configuration that allows the Mx150 transmitter and Mx152 pyro board to be mounted back-to-back and fit inside a 2" ID tube (i.e. 54mm coupler tube). It is intended for smaller diameter nosecones. It includes the Li-ion system electronics battery and the pyro battery. Everything is in one package. There is also an aft bulkhead that includes an anchor bracket for connection to a recovery harness.
Mx152 Option-20 Outrigger Mounting Option
Mx152 Option-20 is an outrigger mounting option that allows the Mx150 transmitter and Mx152 pyro board to be mounted back-to-back. It provides six holes for mounting the whole assembly onto an avionics bay sled. The user will also need to mount the Li-ion electronics battery and the pyro battery to the sled. (Batteries not shown here.)
Mx152 Option-30 Extended Outrigger Mounting Option
Mx152 Option-30 is an extended outrigger mounting option that allows the Mx150 transmitter and Mx152 pyro board to be mounted back-to-back. It provides ten holes for mounting the whole assembly onto an avionics bay sled. It includes mounts for the Li-ion system battery and the pyro battery.
