Treotham announces new ultra-flexible cable
Treotham has announced the introduction of its new ultra-flexible Micro IDC Ribbon Cable from Cicoil.
Unlike PVC and Teflon versions, the .025” pitch Cicoil version has been designed for tight routing applications that require dependable signal density, reduced cable width and exposure to harsh environments, mechanical stress and excessive temperatures (-65°C to +260°C).
Cicoil’s patented extrusion process allows individually encased, finely stranded bare copper wires to be placed in a very small flat profile, controlling the spacing of each component and the overall cable shape.
Approximately half the size of standard 28 AWG IDC Ribbon Cables, the new 30 AWG Flexx-Sil rubber jacketed cables are available with up to 64 conductors and fully terminated assemblies are offered in 3 foot, 6 foot and 12 foot lengths.
In addition, the cables are compatible with any Insulation Displacement Connectors (IDC).
The Micro IDC Ribbon Cables are rated for 3000 Volts DC and are resistant to water, alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, humidity, UV light, radiation, flames, ageing autoclave, ozone, sunlight, fungus, vibration and many chemicals. When a non-adhering jacket surface is desired, Treotham offers the SlideRite and GlideRite low friction coating options by request.
Cicoil’s halogen-free Micro IDC Ribbon Cable is UL & CSA Recognized, CE Conforming, RoHS & REACH Compliant, Class One Clean Room Rated and are cured continuously, with no debris or material contamination in an automated, climate controlled environment. In addition, the non-particulate generating cables exceed the outgassing requirements of ASTM E595 and are also excellent for use in vacuum environments.
