  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Axon' Cable will be present at the 2022 edition of the Medi'Nov Connection exhibition which will take place at the Lyon Convention Center on March 30 and 31. This will be an opportunity for Axon' to present its expertise in custom cables and interconnection systems for medical devices.  Biocompatible, sterilizable, implantable, the cables manufactured by Axon' Cable are designed for the most severe constraints. Visit us at Medi’Nov Connection, booth 141.

  • 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’ China which was already approved as an Authorised Economic Operator (category A) since 2016 has been officially moved to AA category in the China customs import/export system. This status enables Axon’ China to receive and send goods more rapidly as customs procedures are simplified. This label illustrates the group commitment in continuously improving customer satisfaction.

  • 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.

  • In ConnectorSupplier's Connectivity components eBook, our R&D engineers share their expertise in contacts and overmoulding. A reliable and robust electrical connection requires more than cables and connectors. Depending on the application and the environment, a better solution may be to develop special connections with inserted or overmolded pins. Overmolding can also be an asset to adapt and facilitate the integration of the connection into the customer’s system.

  • Axon’ Cable has just updated the brochure dedicated to Low smoke halogen free cables by adding Poliax-HT, a new insulation material able to resist temperatures up to 150°C. This is an interesting compromise in terms of flexibility and performance for operating temperatures up to 150°C. Poliax-HT solution extends Axon’ offer, which already includes cables that can withstand temperatures up to 250°C. Additional information about qualification tests as well as new technical data illustrate Axon’ expertise in halogen free cables for harsh environments.
