Cicoil Cables: Hi Reliability for Military
Flat cable meets ruggedness needed for military applications.
Valencia, CA — Cicoil's highly flexible and durable flat silicone cables are designed for use on Unmanned Ground-Based Military Robotic Vehicles that require absolute reliability in Mission Critical and Extreme Environment Conditions. Unlike bulky and stiffer round cables, these flat silicone cables provide space and weight savings, enhanced flexibility, greater current carrying capacity, reduced skewing effects and better electrical characteristics.

The company utilizes a process of encapsulating conductors in silicone that renders them unaffected by exposure to severe vibration, G-forces, shaking motion, abrasion, water, coarse sand, extreme temperatures (-65 to +260°C), flames and harsh weather conditions. The specialized silicone jacket functions as a shock-absorbing material, completely surrounding and supporting each individual component. Unlike PVC, Polyurethane or Teflon jacketed cables, this cable does not require a clamping system because the conductors cannot creep out of the silicone encasing them. Each Cicoil cable can incorporate a variety of elements including power conductors, shielded single conductors and signal pairs for superior EMI/RFI suppression, video and coax conductors, and other design elements like Cicoil's patented StripMount fastening strip, all in a single compact cable design. Cables are available in continuous lengths, cut to order, or as assemblies, complete with customer-specified connectors, 100 percent tested and inspected.
