High Flex Silicone Cables from Cicoil
Flat multi-task cables meet stringent requirements.
Valencia, CA — Cicoil now offers standard off-the-shelf flexible flat silicone cables and assemblies and custom-made cables for high performance medical automation, diagnostics and pharmaceutical processing applications.

The company's lightweight cables can incorporate any variety of power, data and video conductors in a single compact cable design. In addition to every type of electrical conductor, the cables can also include single and multi-lumen tubing for air or liquid transfer, and even fiber optics, all in the same cable. The cables are 100 percent contaminant-free, as they are rated for Class 1 clean room use. Incorporating multiple elements into a single, compact flat cable makes medical equipment significantly smaller, quieter and more energy efficient.

The silicone encapsulation provides a solid, one-piece construction that creates a highly durable cable package that will not break, deform or wear during a lifetime of more than 10 million cycles, even under high speed flexing or tight bending radius conditions. The company's exclusive silicone extrusion process also delivers advantages in extreme environments, including temperatures ranging from -65 to +260°C, and the cables are impervious to water, steam, UV light and most chemicals.

The UL Recognized, RoHS-Compliant and CE Conforming cables exceed the outgassing requirements of ASTM E-585 and NASA 1124. For additional abrasion resistance, the company offers anti-friction coating options.

The cables are used in thousands of demanding applications, including aircraft fuel control cells, semiconductor automation, and the Space Shuttle.
