Features & Construction
Core Constructions High Performance (HP) 1 x 7 coated core is
available in 3, 4 and 6 Series cables. HP Core
uses a proprietary coating over 1 x 7 wire rope.
This construction offers improved flexibility and
higher push loads than armor core construction.
Solid stainless steel cores are available in 3
Series push-pull, universal, positive lock and
PTO cables. Tension cables use a 1 x 19 HP
coated core, while 8 Series push-pull remains
Stranded Conduit Multiple oil tempered spring wires are placed in
a long lay pattern to protect the liner and inner
core, maintain flexibility and withstand extreme
compressive and tensile loads. This long lay
construction results in minimal deflections during
cable operation, assuring precise controlling
action to the operator.
Seals & Boots High Performance seals are now standard!
Durable custom compounded seals are used
to prevent moisture and contaminants from
entering the cable. The new High Performance
seals outperform all previous seals and are
now standard on all cables. The HP seals
operate in all temperature extremes, while
offering improved performance and efficiency.
Tension cables use a durable tear-resistant
silicone boot, designed for high cycle use and
Liners All Felsted
brand cables use polymer liners,
available in standard HP cable construction at
–65 to +225°F (–54 to +107°C) and HEFT 2
high temperature version at –65 to +300°F
(–54 to +149°C). Factory lubrication provides
optimum core performance without requiring
Note: With quick disconnect control head
cables, though the conduit/core may be rated
to +225°F or +300°F, the control head itself is
not intended for these temperature ranges.
Conduit Jacket Heavy duty, thick-walled polymer jackets are
extruded onto the stranded liner for maximum
cable strength. Standard HP cable material is
polymer molded to a dark maroon color. HEFT 2
jacket, used in high temperature applications,
is a nylon based material molded to a satin
End Fittings Corrosion-resistant materials are used throughout
to provide maximum life. Standard 3, 4 and 6
Series rods and sleeves are 300 series stainless
steel, while hubs are either stainless or
aluminum. The 8 Series rods are stainless steel.
Sleeves and hubs are aluminum with stainless
steel options available for both.
Rod & Sleeve Bearing An exclusive polymer rod and sleeve bearing is
used to improve efficiency, sealing and cable life
by preventing metal-to-metal contact between
the rod and sleeve. They also accurately align
the rod with the seal to further ensure superior
sealing and a longer cable life.
