“Not Your Father’s Flat Cable”

“Not Your Father’s Flat Cable”
Valencia, CA; June 12, 2017:  Cicoil, the leading manufacturer of High Performance Flat Cables, is pleased to announce the release of its New White Paper entitled: “Not your Father’s Flat Cable”.  Available at https://www.cicoil.com/special/not-your-fathers-flat-cable, the Authoritative Guide explains how much has changed since Cicoil invented the Flat Cable in 1956 and how this technology has helped numerous industries to advance their technologies as well. 

The 5 page Report discusses Flat Cable History; The Top 10 Reasons to use Flat Cable; Flat Cable for a Round World: EZ--Flexx™; Flat versus Contoured Cables; What is Flexx-Sil™?; and lastly analyzes the design differences between Flat and round cables.

For years, the conception was that round cable was the natural choice for continuous flex, confined area and mission critical applications.  However, the Paper substantiates that Flat cables have the ability to perform in just about any application and are an excellent alternative to cumbersome round cables.  This proves that the cable world is not just a round one anymore, but is a flat world too. 

Unlike round cables, Cicoil's patented computer-controlled extrusion process allows individual 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.  The Flat cables also have greater surface-to-volume ratio than round cables, consequently having higher efficiency in dissipating heat. This allows a higher current level for a given temperature rise and conductor cross-section
