1. Calculate the size (or "duty") of the cable by the diameter and the threads of the end rods. (Duty range is  V (Very Light Duty) = 10-32, L (Light Duty) = 1/4-28, M = 5/16-24, H = 3/8-24)

2. Determine the type of conduit end fittings (or conduit caps) you'll need for the left and right ends. (Choices are T = Threaded, G = Grooved. TT, GG or TG combinations).

3. Figure out the travel of the end rod. 1" increments from 1" - 6".

4. Calculate the overall length of the cable

5. Determine the cable materials depending on usage and conditions.

Utility: “The Rugged Gray Cable” is the industry-standard and is designed for a long life under rugged conditions (173, 174, 175).

Low Friction EXT: “The Green Cable” is the proper cable to use when superior efficiency is required. The extruded nylon cover over the innermember works very smoothly with the polyliner (313, 314, 315).

Low Friction: The proper cable to use when superior efficiency is required.The bonded PTFE cover over the inner operating member works very smoothly with the plastic liner (183, 184, 185)


When you're done you will end up putting it all together to get the model number.  

An example of a typical ordering code is 173-VTG-3-144.
