Cicoil® Cable Helps MIL Guidance Systems
Military ordnance that uses new wiring system.
Valencia, CA — StripMount from Cicoil® is a fiberglass-reinforced ribbon that may be incorporated into any of the company's cables. It is encapsulated in Cicoil's silicone jacketing, and makes it quick and easy to mount cables to any surface. The patent-pending design allows holes to be easily punched or drilled through the cable reinforcement at whatever intervals are needed, and can accommodate any fasteners to attach the cable to any surface.

Using StripMount-equipped cables eliminates the need for costly conduit and cable tie hardware. It streamlines cable installation and saves space. Cables may be installed using self-tapping screws, rivets, or the wide variety of quick-operating metal or plastic panel fasteners available. In addition, because Cicoil cables are flat, multiple cables can be stacked and attached to any surface. The Mounted Combat System, part of the U.S. Army's Future Combat System, uses precision-guided, 120mm gun-fired smart ammunition that provides a beyond-line-of-sight capability. The projectile contains a guidance system that sustains 10,000 Gs of shock force when fired. Cicoil high performance silicone jacketed, high-flex flat cables have been specified to form the Control Systems Actuator Harness. To conserve space while preserving secure positioning of the harness, the design incorporates the company's new StripMount feature.
