Solar Orbiter, the space mission resulting from an international collaboration between ESA and NASA has been launched from Cape Canaveral by an Atlas V411 rocket. It will take two years to reach its operational orbit. Aboard the satellite, 10 scientific instruments will help to scrutinize the sun. Many scientific institutes and industrial partners have contributed to this mission, which is expected to make unprecedented high-resolution observations of the solar poles. Interconnect links designed and manufactured by Axon’ Cable are on their way to the sun.
About 90 000 step files have now been added to Axon Cables online library. 700 micro-D step files were already available, but you can now have access to a much larger range of specs: rectangular, circular, combo, nano-D, combo, backshells and hardware. Plan your system virtually, today. Can’t find your own perfect micro-D? Just give us a call.
Radatox ™ contributes to improving life expectancy of space missions in some of the harshest environments. Designed by Axon’ engineers, Radatox ™ is a wire and cable insulation material which makes electrical interconnects 10 times more resistant to atomic oxygen than commonly used fluoro-polymer materials such as FEP, PTFE or ETFE and 100 times more resistant than polyimide (Kapton ® ).
