Digi-Key signs Cicoil ruggedised flexible cable line
Digi-Key has signed a global distribution agreement with Cicoil, a manufacturer of flexible flat cable used in commercial and military applications.
Cicoil’s hyper-flexible cable/wire products are designed to withstand harsh environmental factors such as extreme cold and extreme heat (-65°C to +260°C) and remain soft to the touch.
Cicoil cables can also withstand medical or industrial chemicals and meet NASA or ESA outgassing requirements.
Cables can also be custom configured to include tubing, power, signal, and video in one jacketed cable.
“The commercial and military aerospace industries are an expanding market, and Cicoil is ideally placed to serve this area of growth,” said Tom Busher, v-p, global interconnect, passives, and electromechanical product at Digi-Key.
“Cicoil’s rugged product provides a unique dimension to our line card,” said Busher.
Cicoil cables are used in medical equipment, and in automated robotic process equipment, specifically where cables needed to survive tens of millions of flexing, repetitive cycles.
