Cicoil offers standard “off-the-shelf” and custom made cables for high performance medical automation, diagnostics and pharmaceutical processing applications. The light-weight cables can incorporate any variety of power, data and video conductors in a single compact cable design. The cables can include single and multi-lumen tubing for air or liquid transfer, and even fiber optics, all in the same cable. The cables are also 100 percent contaminant-free, as they are rated for Class 1 clean room use. The silicone encapsulation provides a solid, one-piece construction that creates a highly durable cable package that will not break, deform or wear during a lifetime of more than 10 million cycles, even under high speed flexing or tight bending radius conditions. Cicoil’s UL Recognized, RoHS Compliant & CE Conforming cables are asserted to exceed the outgassing requirements of ASTM E-585 and NASA 1124.
