Cicoil’s ultra-durable Controlled Impedance Cable is designed for use in applications requiring submersion in water, repetitive motion and exposure to harsh environments. The 30 AWG, highly flexible cable with individually controlled impedance signals is offered with one to eight individually shielded 100 Ohm pairs, and can be used as an alternative to standard twisted pair and coaxial cables, the company says. Cicoil’s patented extrusion process allows each individually shielded pair to be placed in a flat profile, precisely controlling the spacing of each component, insulation thickness and the overall cable shape. According to the company, the halogen-free and flame-retardant Flexx-Sil encased cable is designed to provide high-speed data transmission, weight and space savings, resistance to temperature extremes (-65 to 165 degrees C) and long-term flex life.
