Increased capacity – decreased size

Our expertise in miniaturization now also includes stamping, cutting and injection moulding in super small sizes. The technology is based on developments for Swiss high quality watch industry. In addition to the existing durable miniature MIL-DTL-83513 Micro D and MIL-DTL-32139 Nano D connector ranges, with Axon Twist-Pin contact, we now have increased manufacturing resources in custom designed miniature connector solutions with stamped flat contacts.

Flexlife >50 million cycles

FFC flat flexible cables for board to board or display interconnect have many well known advantages such as low-cost, space saving and easy assembly to ZIF connectors. Great flexlife for dynamic application with many repeated movements is also one of them. New test show that ultra-flexible FFC cables made by Axon’ which can withstand at least 50 million of cycles.

Nano-D MIL-DTL-32139 qualified

Axon’ Nano-D connectors are now officially qualified to MIL-DTL-32139. This standard dictates the design and performance for miniature Nano-D connectors. The QPL certified Nano-D pigtails are manufactured with AWG 30 or smaller wires. With 0.635 mm (.025″) contact spacing and Axon high realiability Twist-Pin contact these products are specially designed for defense and aeronautics applications but suitable for any application were miniaturisation combined with high performance is essential.

Radiation resistance – new tests up to 7 Grad

Insulating polymer materials on cables will degrade due to exposure to radiation sources including protons (alpha), electrons (beta), photons (gamma, X-rays) and even neutron particles. AXON’ has long experience in proposing and manufacturing the most suitable radiation resistant cable solutions for any environment. The cables are made with insulation materials such as ETFE (LOCA and IEEE 383 approved) , Polyimides, Polyaryletherketones and crosslinked polyolefines. See the new Axorad® catalogue for example of products and the new IEC 60544 test based polymer radiation resistance chart for both standard atmosphere and inert atmosphere (vaccum,nitrogen).
