Flat Cable Configurator Now Available for Mobile Devices
Valencia, CA; April 5, 2017: Need to design a flat cable, but only have a mobile device available? Well, no need to worry any more. Cicoil, the leading manufacturer of Flexible Flat Cables, is pleased to announce that its EZ-Flexx™ Flat Cable Configurator is now available for use on both Apple iOS and Android mobile devices.
Located at www.cicoil.com/flat-cable/configurator, this Free Mobile-Based Tool allows a user to easily design an EZ-Flexx™ cable in minutes and possibly seconds. The easy to use mobile design tool was developed by engineers, for engineers, rather than just a complicated, time consuming cable drawing package. Even better, the EZ-Flexx™ cable design makes Cicoil flat cables easy to separate and strip, just like any round cable, and it also makes the flat cable more light and flexible.
With a few simple mouse clicks or touch of a screen, Flat Cables can be constructed of many elements, including power conductors, shielded signal pairs, video & coax wires and tubing for liquid and air. To make the process even quicker, Cicoil has added Specialty Modules (Camera Link®, Cat 6A, FireWire, USB 3.0) to the Configurator. Any of these elements can be combined in any position within the flat cable profile, which means that over 1 million flat cable designs are available for immediate production and quick delivery. In addition, users can move around, add and remove any elements in their flat cable, in any variation up to 3.75 inches wide.
Once the flat cable is designed, users receive a price quotation, custom part number and an engineering drawing delivered to their mobile e-mail inbox within seconds. Once the cable is ordered, Cicoil guarantees a 1-2 week delivery on any cable designed using the Cable Configurator.
Howard Lind, Cicoil President & CEO remarks, “As Design Engineers become increasingly more mobile, our ability to give them a cable design tool right at their fingertips is of great value. The Mobile Configurator Tool has all of the same features and benefits as the PC version, which is a great advantage to today’s Engineers.”
