  • 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.

  • 11500! That's the number of additional STEP files that have been added to your library of miniature connectors with the Versatys® compact connector range. This brings the total number of files available on the Axon' website to over 100,000. Integrate these files directly into your projects and save design time.

  • Crew-2 astronauts joined the International Space Station a few days ago. Their 6-month mission will be an opportunity to implement a large number of scientific experiments. The ISS has been on orbit for over 20 years. This space project integrates not only space agencies from a large number of countries but also many companies including Axon’ Cable which has been contributing to this project since 2004.

  • 7 months after its take-off, Perseverance has completed its journey and landed on Mars last Thursday, February 18th. Axon’ Cable, specialist in custom-designed interconnect, equips the SuperCam camera of the rover sent by NASA, partly developed by French companies.
