Cicoil Silicone Cables Provide Consistent Reliability for Telepresence Robots
Designed for today’s demanding mobile video conference and telepresence robot applications, Cicoil’s ultra-flexible flat silicone cables are halogen-free and flame-retardant and perform exceptionally well in confined-area environments. In addition, Cicoil’s unique designs provide premium current carrying capacity, reduced skewing effects, weight and space savings, tighter bend radius, and consistent electrical characteristics.
Cicoil’s proprietary extrusion process allows 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. This unique silicone is “self-healing” from small punctures and cable jacket damage can easily 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, high heat (+260°C), humidity, mechanical stress, vibration, shock, and many chemicals.
Cicoil’s lightweight cables can incorporate any variety of power conductors, shielded signal pairs for superior EMI/RFI suppression (Cat 5e, USB, FireWire), and coax conductors in a single, compact cable design. In addition to every type of electrical conductor, the cables can also include single and multi-lumen tubing and other design elements like Cicoil’s patented StripMount fastening strip, all in the same cable, precisely controlling the inner component spacing, jacket thickness, and the overall cable shape.
Standard off-the-shelf cables are available from stock for immediate delivery and custom designs, including cable assemblies with connectors of your choice, are also available with minimum lead times. Cicoil also offers anti-friction coating options, space sensitive custom shapes, fan-out/break-out cables and its new FlexRail self-supporting flat cable system by request.
