A manufacturer of extruded, silicone-jacketed flat cable has launched a web application that allows users to design their own custom cable online. The Cable Configurator web application has drag-and-drop functionality to allow users to design flat cable and get an immediate drawing and quote from Cicoil, Valencia, Calif.

Using the online tool at www.cicoil.com/cables/configurator.asp, the cables can be constructed of many elements, including shielded power conductors, shielded signal conductors, video and coax wires, or tubing for fluids or gases. The elements can be combined in a flat cable.
