Felsted is the name of a company, Furon Felsted, who were the first to design such a cable and which was named after their brand. Felsted cables are, essentially, High-Performance HP control cables which represent a breakthrough in cable construction and thus present superior performance characteristics:
- easier routing
- smaller bend radii
- lower backlash
- high efficiency
- increased push capability
A Felsted cable has a different type of armor wrap, the conventional 1 x 19 core has been replaced by a stranded wire rope with a 1 x 7 construction which is bonded and coated with proprietary polymer materials. The 1 x 7 configuration is well-known as a superior push/pull element too. These unique characteristics ensure assemblies with closer tolerances, reduced backlash and less lost motion under load.
Felsted cables are the result of innovations in polymer technology which, for HP cables, are represented in a new conduit liner, core coating and a boundary silicone lubricant containing a micro-fine PTFE dispersion, providing thus low friction and superior wear resistance.
