Ball Bearing Control Cable Guidelines

Request Information

The basic specifications for each of the control series are defined on the accompanying capabilities chart. This chart shows the basic operational characteristics for each of the control series. Load carrying capability and bend radius are the distinguishing operating characteristics between series.

The standard configurations described on the following pages accommodate applications where input and/or output actions have straight push-pull motion. Where an arc articulation is required, a ball joint connector is recommended (See Accessories for selection). Rigid mounting of control cable end fittings is achieved with jam nuts and washers on the threaded portions of the main sleeves.

When required by a specific application, a number of options are available for sealing the control from the environment.
