Cicoil Introduces New Highly Flexible Thermocouple Cables and Assemblies

VALENCIA, CA - Cicoil, the international leader in high performance Flat Cables and Assemblies, has announced the introduction of its Highly Flexible Thermocouple Cables.  Unlike traditional Thermocouple cables, the Cicoil version has been designed for continuous motion, tight routing, excessive temperatures (-65°C to +260°C) and extremely harsh environments.

Cicoil’s flexible 28 AWG Flat Thermocouple Cable is available in Type J and K versions with 1 to 8 conductors, and is excellent for temperature sensing, control instrumentation, heating systems and automated equipment applications.   The compact, flame retardant solution is free of halogens & contaminants, and is engineered to provide space & weight savings, durability and mission critical reliability.

Cicoil’s patented extrusion process allows each Thermocouple conductor to be placed in a flat profile, precisely controlling the spacing of each component, insulation thickness and the overall cable shape.  

The tear resistant Flexx-Sil® jacket is also self-healing from small punctures and will not wear, crack or deform due to long term exposure to tight routing, vibration, heat, continuous flexing, water, ice, steam, sunlight, humidity, ozone, UV light, autoclave and many chemicals. 

Standard “off the shelf” Type J & K Thermocouple 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 are also available with minimum lead times.  In addition, Cicoil offers anti-friction coatings, impact resistant Super Tuff™ jacketing and custom shape designs by request.

Cicoil's Flexx-Sil™ Jacketed Thermocouple Cables are UL & CSA Recognized, CE Conforming, RoHS 2 & REACH Compliant, Class 1 Clean Room Rated and are manufactured in an automated, climate controlled environment.

Cicoil has been a leader in designing and manufacturing high performance cable assemblies for over fifty years. The company's Patented Flexx-Sil™ Flat Cable Technology provides high flexibility, extremely long life, and they can withstand temperature extremes from -65 degrees to +260 degrees Celsius.  Cicoil’s flat cables are used in thousands of demanding applications; including aircraft fuel control cells, semiconductor automation, and the Space Shuttle. Cicoil designs and manufactures its Flexx-Sil™ jacketed cables and cable assemblies in an automated facility in Valencia, California.  Cicoil's quality assurance system is certified to the ISO 9001 (AS9100) standard.
