Wire & Cable

Cicoil’s flexible thermocouple cables have been designed for continuous motion, tight routing, excessive temperatures (-65 to 260 degrees C) and extremely harsh environments. Its flexible 28 AWG Flat Thermocouple Cable is available in Type J and K versions with one to eight conductors, and can be used for temperature sensing, control instrumentation, heating systems and automated equipment applications. The compact, flame retardant solution is free of halogens and contaminants, and is engineered to provide space and weight savings, durability and mission critical reliability, the company says. Cicoil’s patented extrusion process allows each thermocouple conductor to be placed in a flat profile, precisely controlling the spacing of each component, insulation thickness and the overall cable shape. The tear-resistant Flexx-Sil jacket is also self-healing from small punctures and will not wear, crack or deform due to long-term exposure to tight routing, vibration, heat, continuous flexing, water, ice, steam, sunlight, humidity, ozone, UV light, autoclave and many chemicals, the company explains.
