Flexible cables for military applications in harsh vibration introduced by Cicoil
VALENCIA, Calif., 14 Oct. 2014. Cicoil Corp. in Valencia, Calif., is introducing flexible cables for applications exposed to harsh vibration caused by propelling force, automated machinery, excessive turbulence, intense wind, driving rain, and rough seas.
Cicoil uses a process of surrounding and encapsulating conductors in its shock absorbing Flexx-Sil rubber jacket that renders them unaffected by constant shaking, sudden influence, severe vibration, G-Forces, temperatures from -65 to 260 degrees Celsius, salt corrosion, submersion in water, humidity, chemicals, ozone, radiation, UV light, and the rigors of supersonic flight.
The Cicoil cable does not require a clamping system because the conductors cannot creep out of the Flexx-Sil jacket encasing them.
The tear-resistant Flexx-Sil jacket does not require conduit for protection, is self-healing from small punctures and outer cable jacket damage can be repaired in the field.
In addition, the cable will not wear, crack or deform when exposed tight bending, continuous flexing and operational stress, company officials say.
Standard off-the-shelf and custom cables are available with connectors in 3-, 6-, and 12-foot lengths. The cables are halogen-free, flame retardant, UL recognized, CE conforming, RoHS & REACH compliant, and are cured continuously, with no debris or material impurities, in an automated, climate controlled environment.
