The coiled flex circuit (208) provides for range of motion. The coiled flex circuit (208) has a flex extension (218) that threads through a barrel hinge (214) of the pivot housing (110). The barrel hinge (214) and flex extension (218) are sealed via a single seal (306) having a circumferential seal (312) and pocket (308) thereby allowing the coiled flex circuit (208) to continue to provide range of rotation within the pivot housing (110).
