Cables for Military Robotic Applications

The highly flexible and durable flat silicone cables from Cicoil (Valencia, CA) are designed for use on unmanned ground-based military robotic vehicles that require absolute reliability in mission critical and extreme environment conditions. Unlike bulky and stiffer round cables, Cicoil’s flat silicone cables provide space and weight savings, enhanced flexibility, greater current carrying capacity, reduced skewing effects, and better electrical characteristics. alt

Cicoil utilizes a process of encapsulating conductors in silicone that renders them unaffected by exposure to severe vibration, G-forces, shaking motion, abrasion, water, coarse sand, extreme temperatures (-65°C to +260°C), flames and harsh weather conditions. The specialized silicone jacket functions as a shock absorbing material, completely surrounding and supporting each individual component. Unlike PVC, Polyurethane, or Teflon jacketed cables, the cable does not require a clamping system because the conductors can not creep out of the silicone encasing them.
