Cicoil Introduces Hi-Flex Shielded Signal Cables for Data Transmission Applications
VALENCIA, CA - Cicoil, the global leader in high performance Flat Cables and Assemblies, is pleased to announce the introduction of its Hi-Flex Shielded Signal Cables.  The compact, flame retardant cable design is free of contaminants & halogens, and is engineered to provide uninterrupted data transmission reliability, space efficiency and consistent electrical characteristics.

Cicoil’s Hi-Flex Shielded Signal Cables are available in 1, 2 and 3 twisted shielded pairs (28 AWG to 18 AWG) and are excellent for use in Sensor, Encoder, Actuator and Resolver connection applications.   In addition, an overall shielded 28 AWG/5 twisted pair round cable version is available as well.  Unlike bulky round data transmission cables, the Cicoil flat version has been designed for repeatable motion, tight routing, reduced skewing effects and better heat dissipation.

Cicoil’s patented computer-controlled extrusion process allows each individually shielded pair to be placed in a flat parallel profile, precisely controlling the spacing of each individual component, insulation thickness and the overall cable shape.   This ensures that each of the shielded or unshielded conductors do not rub against each other, wear during operation and provide optimum EMI/RFI suppression. 

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 continuous flexing, severe impact,  vibration,  water, abrasion, ice, steam, sunlight, humidity, ozone, UV light, autoclave, expanded temperatures (-65°C to +260°C) and many chemicals. 

Standard “off the shelf” Hi-Flex Shielded Signal 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 Shielded Signal Cables are UL & CSA Recognized, CE Conforming, RoHS 2 & REACH Compliant, Class 1 Clean Room Rated and are cured continuously, with no debris or material contamination in an automated, climate controlled environment.
