Cicoil's light-weight cables can incorporate any variety of
power, data and video conductors in a single compact cable design. In addition
to electrical conductors, the cables can also include single and multi-lumen
tubing for air or liquid transfer, and fiber optics, all in the same cable. The cables are 100 percent contaminant-free
and rated for Class 1 clean room use.
Incorporating multiple elements into a single flat cable makes medical
equipment smaller, quieter and more energy efficient.
The silicone encapsulation
provides a one-piece construction that creates a 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 silicone extrusion process also
delivers advantages in extreme environments, including temperatures ranging
from -65 to +260C, and the cables are impervious to water, steam, UV light and
Cicoil's UL Recognized, RoHS
Compliant & CE Conforming cables exceed the outgassing requirements of ASTM
E-585 and NASA 1124. For additional
abrasion resistance, Cicoil offers anti-friction coating options.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
