Valencia, CA; October 22, 2011: Cicoil’s highly flexible and durable flat silicone cables are designed for use on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles that require absolute reliability in Mission Critical Applications.
Unlike other types of cables, Cicoil utilizes an exclusive process of encapsulating individual components in a shock absorbing silicone jacket that renders them unaffected by repeated exposure to severe vibration, extreme temperatures (-65°C to +260°C), harsh weather and the rigors of turbulent flight. This combination of features makes Cicoil cables the ideal alternative to wire harnesses, formed flat and bulky round cables in UAV applications.
Each Cicoil cable can incorporate a variety of elements including power conductors, shielded signal pairs, 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 connectors of your choice, 100% tested and inspected.
Cicoil’s UL Recognized, RoHS Compliant & CE Conforming cables are manufactured in an automated, climate controlled environment, and exceed the NASA 1124 outgassing specifications for space use and vacuum requirements. In addition, Cicoil offers anti-friction coating options and custom shaped cable designs by request.
Cicoil has been a leader in designing and manufacturing high performance cable assemblies for over fifty years. The company’s unique silicon coated flat cables provide high flexibility, extremely long life, and they can withstand temperature extremes from -65 degrees to +260 degrees Celsius. Cicoil’s cables are used in thousands of demanding applications; including aircraft fuel control cells, semiconductor automation, and the Space Shuttle. Cicoil designs and manufactures its cable and cable assemblies in an automated facility in Valencia, California. Cicoil’s quality assurance system is certified to the ISO 9001 (AS9100) standard.
