Rugged kink resistant flat cables for unmanned systems

Treotham presents a rugged and extremely durable range of flat cables
designed to provide high reliability in mission critical applications.

Available from Treotham, Cicoil flat cables are recommended for use in unmanned
systems, intelligent robotics and drone applications that require lightweight
and flexible cable designs. Cicoil cables are kink resistant, rugged and space
saving; each cable can, however, incorporate a variety of elements, including
power conductors, shielded signal pairs, video and coax conductors, as well as design
elements such as Cicoil’s patented StripMount fastening strip, all in a single
compact cable design.

Made using Cicoil’s patented computer-controlled extrusion process, the
cables allow each individual component to be placed in a flat parallel profile,
precisely controlling the spacing of each component, insulation thickness and
the overall cable shape. This prevents the internal pairs or conductors from rubbing
against each other, avoiding wear during operation.

The rectangular cross-section allows multiple flat cables to stack, or
layer, with almost no wasted dead space between cables, providing maximum
conductor density for a given volume.

Cicoil flat cables also feature a unique outer jacket that displays self-healing
characteristics – the jacket will not wear, crack or deform from long term
exposure to vibration, sunlight, temperature extremes of -65¡C to +165¡C, acid,
submersion in water, sea ice, steam, coarse sand, flames, radiation, mechanical
stress, humidity, ozone, UV light, fungus, high altitudes and many chemicals.
