Silicone Encased Cables Suit Military Robotic Applications

The company’s flexible and durable flat silicone cables are designed for use on unmanned ground-based military robotic vehicles that require absolute reliability.  They employ 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.  Their silicone jackets function as a shock absorbing material, completely surrounding and supporting each individual component.  Additionally, the cable does not require a clamping system because the conductors cannot creep out of the silicone encasing them.  CICOIL CORP., Valencia, CA.
