Cicoil has released flexible, flat silicone cables designed for use on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Cicoil uses a process of encapsulating individual components in a shock absorbing silicone jacket that is intended to render them unaffected by repeated exposure to severe vibration, extreme temperatures (-65 °C to +260 °C), harsh weather and the rigors of turbulent flight
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 StripMount fastening strip, all in a single cable design. Cables are available in continuous lengths, cut to order, or as assemblies, complete with a choice of connectors.
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, according to the company. In addition, Cicoil offers anti-friction coating options and custom shaped cable designs by request.
