Highly Flexible Silicone Power Cables for Military Helicopter Applications
VALENCIA, CA - Cicoil's Hi-Flex Single Conductor Silicone Power Cables
Cicoil's Hi-Flex Single Conductor Silicone Power Cables provide extreme all-weather flexibility, perform exceptionally well when exposed to chafe and severe heat & cold (-65°C to +260°C), and excel in tight bend radius applications. This combination of features, make Cicoil’s highly reliable silicone power cable the ideal choice for mission critical military helicopter applications.

Cicoil’s halogen-free and flame retardant (UL 94 V-0) design is naturally more flexible than other types of single conductor power cable, and is immune to extreme shock, vibration, mechanical stress, salt water, sunlight, acid rain, ice, corrosion, coarse sand, UV light, weld spark, ozone, corrosion, radiation, and most chemicals.

Cicoil's proprietary crystal-clear silicone encapsulation needs no external "armor" or conduit for protection, is tear-resistant and will not deform or wear during a lifetime of more than 10 million cycles, even under tight bending radius and high speed motion conditions. Cicoil's ultra-durable silicone is "self-healing" from small punctures and cable jacket damage can easily be repaired in the field.

Rated for voltages up to 42,000 Volts DC, Cicoil’s Hi-Flex Single Conductor Power Cables (4 AWG to 30 AWG) are available from stock in continuous lengths, cut to order, or as assemblies, complete with lugs or connectors of your choice, 100% tested and inspected. In addition, Cicoil offers anti-friction coatings, low smoke-zero halogen, custom colors and lower/higher voltage designs by request.

Cicoil's UL Recognized, CE Conforming and RoHS & REACH Compliant cables are manufactured in an automated, climate controlled environment, and exceed the NASA 1124 outgassing specifications for space use and vacuum requirements.

Cicoil has been a leader in designing and manufacturing high performance flat cable assemblies for over fifty years. The company's unique silicone coated flat cables provide high flexibility, extremely long life, and they can withstand temperature extremes from -65 degrees to +260 degrees Celsius. Cicoil's flat cables are used in thousands of demanding applications; including aircraft fuel control cells, semiconductor automation, and the Space Shuttle. Cicoil designs and manufactures its cable and cable assemblies in an automated facility in Valencia, California. Cicoil's quality assurance system is certified to the ISO 9001 (AS9100) standard.
