Using an integral return spring in the actuating mechanisms allows the use of a pull pull cable assembly.
In general, a more flexible conduit and cable construction will allow for tighter routings and smaller bend radii.
Because of the frictional forces between the cable and the conduit, … Read More
Cable life and appearance can be enhanced by the use of plastic coated cable. The coating seals out contaminants, seals in lubrication and cushions the cable strands thereby increasing cycle life.
Consideration should be given to the choice of plastics based upon the desired UV and heat stabilization … Read More
Select the desired cable construction. For example, 1×7 is the stiffest while 7×19 is the most flexible.
Determine the environmental effects that the cable will be exposed to. Stainless steel should be used for any critical outside applications.
Determine what the cable and assembly breaking strength needs to … Read More
