With mission critical military helicopter applications, internal components, such as power cables, must handle harsh environmental conditions. The Hi-Flex Single Conductor Silicone Power Cables handle extreme weather, perform well when exposed to chafe and severe heat and cold (-65°C to +260°C), and operate even in tight bend radius situations.
The halogen-free and flame retardant (UL 94 V-0) design is flexible and immune to extreme shock, vibration, mechanical stress, salt water, sunlight, acid rain, ice, corrosion, coarse sand, UV light, weld spark, ozone, corrosion, radiation, and most chemicals.
The proprietary crystal-clear silicone encapsulation needs no external “armor” or conduit for protection. It is tear-resistant and will not deform or wear during a lifetime of more than 10 million cycles, even under tight bending radius and high speed motion conditions. The durable silicone is “self-healing” from small punctures and cable jacket damage can easily be repaired in the field.
Rated for voltages up to 42,000 Vdc, these power cables (4 AWG to 30 AWG) are available from stock in continuous lengths, cut to order, or as assemblies, complete with lugs or connectors of your choice, 100% tested and inspected.
