Cicoil’s Highly Flexible Flat Cables provide absolute reliability and uninterrupted operation when utilized in Automated Medical Diagnostic Applications. In addition, these Class 1 Clean Room Rated cables are 100% contaminant free and the unique crystal-clear, Flexx-Sil™ rubber jacket allows for quick, easy and safe inspection of the entire flat cable.
Cicoil’s solid, one-piece design can incorporate any variety of data, power and video conductors in a single, compact flat cable profile. In addition to every type of electrical conductor, the cables can also include single and multi-lumen tubing for air or liquid transfer, all in the same cable, making them an ideal solution for Automated Clinical Diagnostics, Blood Screening, Microbiology Specimen Transfer, DNA Sequencing, Cell Imaging and Immunoassay Analyzing Systems.
Cicoil’s patented computer-controlled extrusion process allows each individual component to be placed in a flat parallel formation, precisely controlling the overall shape, insulation thickness and inner component spacing. This ensures that each of the inner elements do not rub against each other and wear during a lifetime of more than 10 million cycles, even under high speed flexing and tight bending radius conditions.
The proprietary Flexx-Sil™ jacket is also self-healing from small punctures and is impervious to long term exposure to de-ionized water, alcohol, steam, UV light, radiation, humidity, temperature extremes (-65°C to +260°C), autoclave and many chemicals.
Standard “off the shelf” Cables are available for immediate delivery and cable assemblies, complete with connectors are offered in 3 foot, 6 foot and 12 foot lengths. Custom designs, including assemblies with connectors of your choice, 100% tested and inspected, are also available with minimum lead times. In addition, Cicoil offers anti-friction coatings, torsion and custom shape designs by request.
