Cicoil, a manufacturer of high performance flat cables based in Valencia, Cal., has announced a new video: “Mission Critical Flat Cables.” It details why and how to source cables that demand unparalleled performance in critical applications and cable failure is not an option.
Manufactured with high-strength, oxygen-free copper wire, Cicoil’s design is naturally more flexible than other types of round and flat cables, according to company officials. And its shock-absorbing jacket is immune to extreme vibration, g-forces, mechanical stress, salt-water submersion, corrosion, sunlight, acid rain, sea ice, coarse sand, UV light, humidity, extreme temperatures (-65° to 165°C), flames, ozone, the rigors of turbulent flight and most chemicals.
The proprietary crystal-clear encapsulation needs no external “armor” or conduit for protection, is “self-healing” from small punctures and cable jacket damage can easily be repaired in the field.
Additional videos in the series include: “A history of innovation,” “Flat cables for a round world,” “Standard Cicoil flat cables overview” and “Top 5 reasons to use flat cable (vs. round cable).
