Valencia, California - Cicoil Corporation has introduced flat silicone ultra-flexible cables for telepresence, robotic and mobile video-conference applications.
Cicoil's proprietary extrusion process enables individual components to be placed precisely within the cable, says the company, for fine tolerances on the insulation thickness and the overall cable form factor.
The silicone used is claimed to self-heal from small punctures, with cable jacket damage repairable in the field. The encapsulation will not delaminate or degrade on exposure to steam, water, alcohol, ultraviolet radiation, temperatures up to 260 degC, high humidity, mechanical stress and many aggressive chemicals, according to Cicoil.
A variety of power conductors may be incorporated, such as shielded signal pairs for EMI/RFI suppression and coaxial conductors. The cables also can include single- and multi-lumen tubing.
