Flexible Shaft Mechanical Control Cable Push-Pull Control Cable
With an automatic transmission, a gear shift or shifter cable is required to actuate the gear shifting lever and the transmission. The transmission shifting is accomplished by a gear shift cable which puts the vehicle in Park, Reverse, Neutral and Drive positions through a lever mounted on the steering column or a gear shifter near the center console.
【Push- Pull Standard Description】
Design— We have a wide variety of industrial, ordnance, marine and aircraft applications. Combined with careful selection of materials and fabrication methods, this design provides users the most versatile, highest quality control available today.
End Rod and Support Tube— All standard controls may be ordered with either type 300 stainless steel or protectively plated carbon steel end rods and support tubes. Choose the material to best meet your requirements.
End Rod Seals— Rod wiper seals have been carefully designed to prevent entry of moisture and contamination into the support tube and to provide a bearing surface for smooth motion of the end rod. Two types of rod wiper seals are available (see seal options in ordering code), capable of meeting a wide range of environmental conditions.
Improved Model 5 Floating Wiper Seal— All Utility, Low Friction, Low Friction EXT and Bristow® controls are equipped with the new improved molded plastic Model 5 seal unless otherwise specified. Extensive testing and field experience have proven the ability of this seal to protect the control in contaminated environments. Security tabs hold the seals in position and an internal support tube bushing improves end rod alignment.
Model 6 Floating Wiper Seal System— The Model 6 seal system is offered as an option on all Push-Pull control cables. It is designed to provide a tighter fit with the surface of the rod end and an internal o-ring is added at the swivel joint of the support tube for additional protection. The Model 6 seal system provides additional sealing for use in extreme environmental conditions. Because this seal produces additional load friction to a push-pull control cable, it is recommended for applications which can tolerate extra friction.
Swivel— The swivel joint between support tube and end cap is designed to allow 8 degrees minimum swivel from the control centerline.
Swivel Seal — Protection of the swivel joint from entry of moisture and contamination is provided by a molded seal. On LD and larger sizes, mounting nuts for threaded type conduit fittings may be removed without removing the swivel seal.
Conduit Caps— All standard controls have plated steel conduit fittings. Special controls
designed for marine and aircraft applications are available with stainless steel or brass fittings.
Conduit— Four types of conduit construction are available to meet various requirements — Low Friction, Low Friction EXT, Utility and Bristow. These standard conduits are covered with a tough plastic casing for protection against corrosion and abrasion. Color coding of the casings allows easy identification of the control type:
Low Friction EXT-Green
Inner Operating Member— The inner operating member for all standard controls is made of flexible 1 X 19 strand, armored with a swaged steel jacket for efficient operation and compression strength. Stainless steel inner operating member is available for added protection in corrosive environments. In Low Friction controls, a coating of PTFE provides superior efficiency and reduces "stick-slip" during operation. Note: VLD Bristow is a solid wire, Low Friction EXT is plastic covered, Utility is uncovered.
Lubrication— All standard controls are lubricated during construction with carefully selected compounds to provide optimum performance. No further service is necessary or recommended.
Installation— Mechanical stops should be implemented at or below the travel desired (ie. 1,2, 3, 4, 5, or 6) on the equipment on which the cable assembly is being installed. Internal damage may result if end rod is allowed to bottom inside conduit cap.
