Cicoil now offers ultra-flexible thermocouple cables for temperature sensing applications where accuracy and durability are required. Unlike traditional rigid thermocouple cables, the Cicoil version excels when exposed to continuous flexing, torsion and tight routing.
Cicoil’s 28 AWG thermocouple cable is available in Type J and K versions with 1 to 8 conductors, and is excellent for utilization on control instrumentation, heating systems, cooking and baking, machine tools, injection molding, and automated equipment. The compact, flame-retardant design is free of halogens and contaminants, and is engineered to provide space and weight savings, high performance and mission-critical reliability.
Cicoil’s patented extrusion process allows individually encased thermocouple pairs to be placed in a small flat profile, precisely controlling the spacing of each component, insulation thickness and the overall cable shape. The cables are available in continuous lengths, break-outs, custom-formed shapes, cut to order, or as fully terminated assemblies. Custom designs are also offered with minimum lead times. When a non-adhering jacket surface is desired, Cicoil offers its SlideRite and GlideRite low friction coating options by request.
The tear resistant outer Flexx-Sil rubber jacket is also self-healing from small punctures and will not wear, crack or deform during a lifetime of more than 10 million flexing cycles or long-term exposure to tight routing, vibration, water, steam, shock, sunlight, temperature extremes (–85° to 500°F), flames, radiation, operational stress, autoclave, humidity, ozone, UV light and many chemicals.
Cicoil’s Ultra Flexible thermocouple cables are UL Recognized, CE Conforming, RoHS & REACH Compliant, Class 1 Clean Room Rated and are cured continuously, with no debris or material contamination in an automated, climate controlled environment.
