Meet Axon' at Micronora in Besançon

In less than a week, four companies of the Axon' group will be present at Micronora, the international microtechnology trade fair in Besançon. Axon'Cable, Axon'Mechatronics, Axon'Nanotec and Addix will present their respective know-how in cables and connectors, miniature connections, metal-plastic parts and elastomeric components. You will find them from 27 to 30 September on their joint booth (300-301/400-401), hall C.

How to design optical fiber cables for interconnect solutions in harsh environments

For two decades, the need for ever-increasing capacity and speed to move data through our electronic devices has generated the deployment of millions of kilometers of optical fiber across the planet, thus enabling the creation of very high-speed networks. In telecommunications, the advantages linked to fiber optics, including high data rate and reliable transmission (EMI protection), have been known to engineers for a very long time. Today we consider technologies related to photonics to have reached maturity. However, for harsh environments, such as avionics and defense, key issues related to high temperatures, vibration, and shock must be considered to maximize the efficiency of optical technologies. In space, requirements are even more critical, as the photonic payload must also resist radiation, atomic oxygen, and outgassing.

Axon' harnesses on board ESA's new Vega-C launcher

The Vega-C rocket, European Space Agency's (ESA) new launcher, successfully made its maiden flight from the Kourou space centre on Wednesday 13th July. An evolution of the Vega launcher, for which AXON' Cable already supplied MIL-STD-1553 data transmission harnesses, Vega-C's placed seven European satellites into Earth orbit. This maiden flight was the first of a series of launches for which AXON' will continue to provide its expertise.

Axon' launches cable operator training with ITI Pragathi

AXON' Interconnectors & Wires, the Bangalore-based Indian subsidiary of Axon' Cable Group, and ITI Pragathi, the Industrial Training Institute in Vijayapura, are joining hands to train students in the demanding field of connectivity. The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will take place at the Axon' factory in Bangalore on the 10th of June 2022 in the presence of the French Ambassador to India

Overmoulding: a real expertise

As a protection, overmoulding extends the life of cable assemblies and harnesses. This expertise requires particular skills and knowledge especially when interconnects are used in harsh environments. In order to offer the very product needed by customers, co-engineering play sa key role.

How to adapt interconnects to harsh environments ?

When it comes to specifying the links or connectors used in a harsh environment application, knowledge of the constraints surrounding the application is necessary to propose the best possible technological solution. Interconnects already on the market
generally have limited performance in terms of temperature resistance or electrical characteristics. Optimizing these solutions for harsh environments becomes a vital and necessary step.

How to Design High-Speed Digital Signals for an Onboard Network in Spacecraft

The quantity of data to be transmitted between devices onboard spacecraft can reach up to several tens of Gb/s, and that volume is constantly increasing. Data transmission is much more than transmitting 0s and 1s. The type of information, the speed, and the signal integrity are key issues which also must be considered. The high-speed links have to be adapted to the environment. When designing the links for spacecraft, engineers have to take into account parameters for outgassing, resistance to radiation, and weight-saving.

Axon' takes action to limit its environmental impact

What is the impact of my industrial activity on the environment? This is the question that Axon' and a dozen other companies in the region have been trying to answer for a year. The aim is to define the life cycle of manufactured products in order to limit their impact on the environment. This is a voluntary approach promoted by the Grand Est region and the French ecological transition agency ADEME, which is based on ISO 14001. To support companies, the region has set up a collective support program called CYVISO 14001. This study already provides answers that will impact the design of Axon' interconnect links and connectors.
