Treotham Automation has entered into a distribution agreement with Cicoil, the global leader in high performance flat cable technology to supply their cable products in Australia.

Treotham Automation has now launched the lightweight and ultra flexible Cat 6a cables from Cicoil.

Cicoil's flat, compact design provides exceptional reliability when flexed, twisted or routed through tight spaces, while the proprietary Flexx-Sil rubber encased cable is designed to provide high speed data transmission rates of 10 Gbit/sec, frequencies of 500MHz and above, and average suppression of electromagnetic interference, especially in continuous flexing applications.

The flat design of the cable comes from Cicoil's patented extrusion process that allows four individually shielded 28 AWG 100 Ohm pairs to be placed in a small, flat profile, precisely controlling the spacing of each component, insulation thickness and overall cable shape. This flat design concept allows for easy stripping and a significant reduction in cable prep time, with the design being compatible with standard handheld manual and automated stripping and crimping equipment.

Even with repeated flexing, the space-saving Cat 6A cable features a repeated bend radius of just 2cm, and a cycle life exceeding 10,000,000 repetitive flexing cycles.

Individual Cat 6 cables can be stacked in a cable track while multiple Cat 6 cables as well as other components can be incorporated into a custom made single flat cable design using Cicoil's on-line cable configurator.
