Control Cable Push Pull Cable Instructions

An example of a control cable “ordering code” looks like this 173 – V – TG – 3 – 144. The following example will help you determine the information required to make up the “ordering code” of your control cable.

Step 1
Determine cable material depending on usage and conditions. See details of 173 Utility and 313 Low-Friction EXT to determine which one you should choose.

Utility (173): The Rugged Gray Cable is the industry standard and is designed for a long life under rugged conditions.
Low-Friction-EXT (313): The Green Cable is the proper cable to use when superior efficiency is required. The extruded synthetic cover over the inner member works extremely smoothly with the poly liner.

Step 2
Determine the “duty” (size) of the cable by the diameter and the threads of the end rods.
V = 10-32 (very light duty)
L = 1/4-28 (light duty)
M = 5/16-24 (medium duty)
H = 3/8-24 (heavy duty)

Step 3
Determine the type of conduit end fittings (conduit caps) for left end and right end.
T = threaded
G = Grooved
TT
GG
TG combinations.

Step 4
Determine the travel of the end rod. 1″ through 6″ in one inch increments.
1 inch
2 inches
3 inches
4 inches
5 inches
6 inches

Step 5
Determine the overall length of the cable.
Example: 144 inches
