900! This is the number of satellites that the American company OneWeb has planned to manufacture to provide Internet access for everyone, everywhere – even in the hard to reach area. The first 6 satellites of this mega-constellation have just been launched. Axon’ Cable has been selected to cable all 900 satellites by the Joint Venture in charge of the manufacturing of the spacecraft, Airbus-OneWeb Satellites that loves rising to the challenges.
About one year after the first pickaxe, the Indian subsidiary of Axon’ Cable, leader in cable and interconnect systems, has now moved to a brand new, purpose-built factory located in the Hitech Defense and Aerospace Park close to Bangalore airport.
We now offer extended range of thermocouples for sensors and matching extension or compensation cables. Following standards such as IEC 584-3, DIN 43710 and others or custom designed versions for special applications. Available with many conductor possibilities such as K, T, BX, SX (SCA/SCB) and with high temperature insulating materials such as PTFE, FEP or extreme temperature version Axon Vibraflame® for up to +1050°C.
Ranging from cars to appliances and electronic devices for research centres or space, the list of applications for which the Axon’ Group can provide interconnect solutions is extensive. Welcome to see more and meet us at Electronica in Munich-Germany, November 13-16. You find us in hall B2 booth 361
Lightweight coaxial Cables manufactured by Axon’ are with its aluminium conductor, 30 % lighter than the former standards. Designed for cabling of aircraft and helicopters, they exhibit excellent mechanical and electrical performances up to 18 GHz for cable assemblies. Moreover, the dielectric of Celloflon®, expanded PTFE patented by Axon’, provides not only low attenuation but also very good crush resistance (100 daN/100 mm).
Axon factory for FFC, Flat Flexible Cables, has succesfully been recertified to automotive quality management system standard IATF 16949:2016 (previously ISO/TS 16949). In addition many quality assurance tools like Machine Vision Inspection Cameras, as shown in picture, are widely used in this high volume, high quality cable production site.
