Limiting environmental impact

Axon’ is participating in the French environmental impact study program CYVISO 14001. The result is clear: the choice of raw materials is significant for the environmental impact of our products. To manage and limit it customers must be made aware of the future of their products and for example be offered reusable,  long lifetime solutions or possibility of reducing the thickness of cable insulation, while reassuring the quality. This “Green connect” approach therefore involves raising the awareness of the engineers already early in design and R&D stages.

Back on the red planet!

Perseverance’s new Supercam has links between the electronic system and telescope designed by Axon’. This cable assembly, which transmits information to the rover, is terminated at each end by a specific pair of miniature Micro-D connectors. Additionally, Axon has also carried out the cabling of the microphone installed about the Perseverance’s SuperCam. All the cabling of the SuperCam and the microphone has been made in clean room under controlled atmosphere in the Axon’ site located in Montmirail in France. Designed in collaboration with NASA and IRAP Toulouse, with the help of CNRS and CNES, SuperCam is a concentrate of technologies that will remotely analyse Martian rocks.

NOSO-FREE®, Antibacterial solutions

Particularly aware of the contamination risks of a nosocomial infection, Axon’ Cable has incorporated the technology of silver ion micro-flux into interconnect solutions to develop NOSOFREE®, an innovative range of antimicrobial medical assemblies. Designed with dedicated jacketing, moulding and overmoulding materials with anti-microbial and anti-fungi properties, they inhibit the growth of viruses, microbes, including bacteria which resist antibiotics. Any plastic insulation including PVC, TPE and PE can be modified with antibacterial agents. Material properties, such as colour and biocompatibility are not affected by the NOSO-FREE® manufacturing process. The antibacterial activity is efficient during the whole lifetime of the cable assembly.

ESA Qualified cable assembly for Q band satellites

Only Axon’ Cable currently provides a range of RF cable assemblies up to 45 GHz which has been QPL qualified by ESA according to the ESCC3408/003 specification. Up to twice as light as non-approved equivalent products, these cable assemblies achieve excellent electrical characteristics. In short, this is an ideal solution for antennae designed for telecommunication satellites operating in the Q band (45 GHz). The development of this range of microwave coaxial assemblies has been fully achieved by Axon’ Cable with the support of the French Space Agency CNES.
