VALENCIA, Calif., 1 May 2015. Cicoil Corp. in Valencia, Calif., is introducing is introducing lightweight and flexible Cat 6a cabling for aerospace and defense applications that require repeating flexing.

The Cicoil flat, compact design provides reliability when flexed, twisted or routed through tight spaces. The proprietary Flexx-Sil rubber encased cable is designed to provide data transmission rates of as fast as 10 gigabits per second, frequencies of 500 MHz, and above average suppression of electromagnetic interference, especially in continuous flexing applications.

The Cicoil extrusion process allows four individually shielded 28 American Wire Gauge (AWG) 100 Ohm pairs to go in a small, flat profile to control the spacing of each component, insulation thickness, and the overall cable shape.

The flat design concept allows for easy stripping, and is compatible with standard hand held manual and automated stripping and crimping equipment. The cable has a repeated bend radius of 0.9 inch, and a cycle life exceeding 10,000,000 repetitive flexing cycles.

Individual Cat 6 cables can be stacked in a cable track and through the use of the Cicoil on-line cable configurator, several Cat 6 cables, as well as other components, can be incorporated into a custom flat cable design.
