What is the difference between a stack decoupler and a stack separator?



  • So what is the functional difference between a stack decoupler and a stack separator? Why might I use one over the other? In what cases would I want to choose the TR-18D Stack Separator over the lighter TR-18A Stack Decoupler?



  • The Stack Separator decouples from both the child and the parent node whilst the Stack Decoupler remains attached to the child.

    Why might I use one over the other?

    Situations where you are separating satellites, rovers, probes or other payloads and don't want the Decoupler still attached.
