Cicoil, a manufacturer of high performance Flexx-Sil flat cables and assemblies, recently announced its newly expanded online “Drag & Drop” Flat Cable Configurator. The new web application allows users to easily design a custom cable in just minutes.
Configurator cables can be constructed using many elements (over 20 new additions), including power conductors, shielded signal pairs, video and coax wires, tubing for liquid and air, and design elements like Cicoil’s patented StripMount fastening strip.
To quicken the process Cicoil has added specialty signal modules (Cat 5e, Cat 6, Camera Link, FireWire, USB 2.0, USB 3.0) to the configurator. Any of these elements can be combined in any position within the flat cable profile, which means that millions of flat cable designs are available for immediate production and delivery.
As soon as the flat cable design is constructed, users receive a price quotation, custom part number, and an engineering drawing delivered to their e-mail inbox within seconds. Once the cable is ordered, Cicoil guarantees a 1-2 week delivery on any custom cable design.
