Cicoil, the world's exclusive provider of silicone jacketed, high-flex flat cables, has introduced a line of Camera Link® cable assemblies for industrial motion video and frame grabber applications. The Camera Link® Standard is a set of electrical requirements that cables must meet to be used in a Camera Link® system. Cicoil's new high-flex flat cable assemblies meet or exceed each of the specifications of the Camera Link® standard. Additionally, Cicoil's Camera Link® flat cable assemblies deliver exceptionally long life of at least 10 million flex cycles, with a space-saving 50mm bend radius providing unsurpassed flexibility for moving video applications. Cicoil manufactures Camera Link® cable assemblies to any length for custom fitting.
Cicoil's Camera Link® cable is made with the company's exclusive extrusion process that encapsulates 11 parallel twinax conductors in crystal clear silicone, forming a flat cable less than 3/16-inch thick. The one-piece silicone jacket is extremely durable, flexible, and water-proof. Each twinax conductor features ultraflex, finely stranded wires, with dual shielding for optimum signal quality and speed. The cable measures 1.5" wide x 0.164" thick, with the length specified by the customer. Standard assemblies are finished with metal EMI/ESD protective connectors with quick-release latches. Plastic shells are also available.
Cicoil is unique in its ability to include Camera Link® capability into flat cables that also integrate power, signals, and even hollow tubing for pneumatic or hydraulic use.
