Flexible flat silicone cables for robotics and mobile teleconferencing introduced by Cicoil

Provide premium current carrying capacity, reduced skewing effects, weight and space savings, tight bend radius, and consistent electrical characteristics

VALENCIA, Calif., 1 Feb. 2013. Cicoil Corp. in Valencia, Calif., is introducing flat silicone ultra-flexible cables for demanding telepresence robotic and mobile video-conference applications.


The cables not only are halogen-free, flame retardant, and perform in confined spaces, but also provide premium current carrying capacity, reduced skewing effects, weight and space savings, tight bend radius, and consistent electrical characteristics.

Cicoil's proprietary extrusion process enables individual components to be placed in a flat cable, precisely controlling the spacing of the inner components, the insulation thickness and the overall cable shape.

The silicon used is self healing from small punctures and cable jacket damage can be repaired in the field. In addition, the non-contaminating, silicone encapsulation will not delaminate or degrade due to exposure to steam, water, alcohol, UV light, heat as high as 260 degrees Celsius, humidity, mechanical stress, vibration, shock, and many chemicals, company officials say.

Cicoil's light-weight cables can incorporate a variety of power conductors, shielded signal pairs for EMI/RFI suppression, and coax conductors in a compact cable design.

In addition to every type of electrical conductor, the cables also can include single and multi-lumen tubing, and other design elements like Cicoil's StripMount fastening strip, all in the same cable to control the inner component spacing, jacket thickness and the overall cable shape.
