NEW Flat Cables for a Round World Video
For years, Cicoil only offered a standard flat profile cable design, which limited its use in some markets that required round cables. To meet these new needs, Cicoil developed a new easy to use, flat contoured cable named EZ-Flexx, that could be utilized in round cable applications. Unlike, the standard flat cable designs, this new concept incorporates Round Components which can be easily split apart from the main cable body, are easy to strip, are thinner, weigh less, and extremely easy to work with.
Cicoil's patented computer-controlled extrusion process allows various individual round components, such as power conductors, twisted shielded pairs, and even tubing, to be placed in a flat parallel profile, precisely controlling the spacing of each component, insulation thickness and the overall cable shape. This ensures that each of the internal contents do not rub against each other and wear during operation.
Additional videos in the series will include: “A History of Innovation”; “Mission Critical Flat Cables”; “Standard Cicoil Flat Cables Overview” and “Top 5 Reasons to use Flat Cable (vs round cable)”.
