The Ultra Flexible and High Temperature Coaxial Cables newly available from Cicoil have been “designed for tight routing installation, continuous motion, phase stability, excessive heat [260 deg. C] and extremely cold bend temperature exposure [-65 deg. C],” the company said when announcing the products. The flexible 30-AWG flat coaxial cable is available in 50- and 75-ohm versions, with 1 to 8 coaxial conductors. Cicoil says this cable “is excellent for high-performance video transmission in mil/aero, space, medical and commercial applications.”
The company’s tear-resistant Flexx-Sil jacket is self-healing from small punctures and, Cicoil says, will not wear, crack or deform due to long-term exposure to vibration, radiation, corrosion, salt water, ice, steam, sunlight, humidity, ozone, UV light, autoclave and a number of chemicals. The company adds that its “patented extrusion process allows each coax conductor to be placed in a flat, Flexx-Sil profile, precisely controlling the spacing of each component, insulation thickness and the overall cable shape. The halogen-free and flame-retardant design is engineered to provide weight savings, low line-to-line skew and maximum signal integrity, while still delivering exceptional mechanical reliability.”
Off-the-shelf 50- and 75-ohm cables are available for immediate delivery, and cable assemblies in 3-, 6- and 12-foot lengths are available. Custom configurations are also available.
