Cicoil, Valencia, Calif., maker of flat cables and assemblies, announced its newly expanded online “Drag & Drop” Flat Cable Configurator. An entire section of the website is dedicated to this new web application, which allows a user to easily design a custom cable in just minutes.
With a few clicks of a mouse, Configurator Cables can be constructed of many elements 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 make the process even quicker, 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 millions of possible design configurations exist.
As soon as the flat cable design is chosen, users receive a price quotation, custom part number and an engineering drawing by e-mail, and Cicoil guarantees a 1-2 week delivery on any cable designed using its Cable Configurator.
