Cicoil’s Flat Festoon Cables are designed for some of the harshest environments known to mankind. Ideal in lateral traversing motion applications, such as overhead & gantry cranes, monorail hoists, car wash equipment, conveyors, telescoping jetways, and material handling systems, these UV resistant cables are an excellent alternative to Neoprene and PVC jacketed flat cables that don’t provide reliability in severe temperature and tough weather conditions.
Cicoil’s proprietary extrusion process allows multiple conductors to be placed in a flat cable, precisely controlling the spacing of the wires, the jacket thickness and the overall cable shape. The flat construction allows for stacking multiple cables where space is at a premium and a tight bending radius is required.
Cicoil’s exclusive crystal-clear Flexx-Sil encapsulation is tear-resistant, needs no external “armor” or conduit for protection, is self-healing from small punctures and will not deform or wear during a lifetime of more than 10 million cycles or operational stress.
Unlike most other flat festoon cables, Cicoil’s unique flat extruded cables are unaffected when exposed to flames (UL 94 V-0), crosswinds, high voltages (up to 20,000 Vdc), driving rain, ice, snow, salt corrosion, temperature extremes (-65°C to 165°C) submersion in water, coarse sand, shock, vibration, sunlight, and many chemicals. For applications that require continuous operation in extreme heat, Cicoil offers shielded and higher temperature designs (+260°C) options by request.
Standard “off the shelf” Flat Festoon Cables (4 to 28 AWG) are available from stock and cable assemblies, while complete assemblies with connectors are offered in 3, 6 and 12 ft lengths. Custom designs incorporating shielded wires or signal pairs, coaxial conductors, strength members, and tubing for air or fluid transfer are available with minimum lead times.
Cicoil’s Halogen-Free Festoon Cables are UL Recognized, CE Conforming, RoHS & REACH Compliant and are manufactured in an automated, climate controlled environment.
