Help with Wire Rope Fittings and Cable Fittings specifications:

Type
   Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Ball Fitting       Ball fittings are available in plain ball, single shanked ball, and double shanked ball configurations.  All types have a through hole for mounting onto a cable. Ball can be used to allow the end of a cable to pivot or may provide spacing, which reduces contact area and resistance as a wire rope or control cable is dragged along a surface. 
   Clip / Clamp       Clips, gripples and other clamps are used to fasten or attach a two cables or cable to a fitting. Clips often consist of a "U" shaped fitting with threaded ends similar to a U-bolt.  The "U" fits around the wire rope and is clamped down with two nuts. Forged or cast clamps are available with different configurations. 
   Eye       Fitting with an eye or opening, which can be grabbed onto with a hook, ring or shackle. The eye may be round, slotted, oval square or another shape. 
   Fork / Strap Eye       Forks, strap eyes or clevis assemblies consist of an elongated "U" shape where the base of the "U" is attached to the end of the cable using a ball fitting or socket.  Strap eyes have two eyes at the open end of the strap to hold a clevis or other pin.  Clevis assemblies include the clevis pin. 
   Latching System       Fitting system providing a latching, catch or snap-in capability to capture another fitting, ring, eye or pin. 
   Oval Sleeve / Flemish Eye       Oval sleeves and Flemish eyes can accommodate two cables and are used to form a loop at the end of a cable. Sleeves are typically swaged onto a wire rope.  
   Mounting Bracket       Mounting brackets are used to hold or mount threaded studs or other cable fittings, which are attached to a cable, onto a surface. 
   Shackle / Hook / Ring       Shackles, hooks and rings are used at the end of a wire rope or chain to attach or grab onto eye bolts, lifting holes or hoist ring on containers, equipment or other items to be lifted or moved.  Shackles, hooks and rings are also used to link wire ropes or chains together to form slings. 
   Stop Sleeve / Plug       Stop sleeves, buttons, swaging ferrules, swage terminals or plugs are simple cylindrical or hex shaped fittings accommodating a single cable. Stop sleeves are used to stop or prevent cable from passing through another fitting or conduit. 
   Thimble / Saddle       Thimbles are used to create a loop at the end of a wire rope.  The wire rope is wrapped around the outside of the thimble and then locked with a clip, sleeve or other fitting. Solid thimbles are also available from some manufacturers.  Combination fittings are available that provide an integral fastening mechanism such as a clip. Saddles are "L" shaped corner protectors that a wire rope wraps into. Both thimbles and saddles protect the wire rope and line the inside of the loop.  They prevent the wire rope from contacting the product being handled. 
   Threaded End / Stud       Fitting with a threaded end or stud used to form an end rod on a cable.  A nut on the end of the threaded end enables finer adjustments of cable tension or enables a firm attachment to a lever, handle, or actuator member in a control head. 
   Turnbuckle       Turnbuckle fittings are attach to lengths of cable on either end and are used to adjust the tension in a wire rope or cable system.  Turnbuckles have two internally threaded ends, which are used to hold eye bolts, swivel stud fittings or threaded strap fittings.   
   Swivel Fitting       Fitting has a swivel that allows the fitting to spin without twisting the cable. Care must be used in selecting the type of cable used with a swivel fitting. 
   Other       Unlisted, specialized, proprietary, custom or application-specific wire rope or cable fitting type.

Specifications
   Diameter       The size of the pulley, sheave or drum determines the maximum diameter of the rope or cable that can be fed through the transit or fitting. With control cables, diameter usually refers to the overall, conduit or outer casing dimension. With bare wire rope, the largest outer diameter (OD) is listed because the rope’s diameter is not uniform in size. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Length       This is the length of the control cable or cable assembly. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Load       This is the operating or working load that can be applied to the cable, mechanical control cable or cable assembly. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Wire / Fitting Material       
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum       Aluminum is versatile, lightweight, and relatively corrosion-resistant. 
   Bronze / Copper Alloy       Copper and copper alloys such as bronze and brass have very good corrosion resistance, high electrical and thermal conductivity, and moderate strength. Bronze and copper alloys are used where additional electrical conductivity or grounding is required. 
   Monel® / Nickel Alloy       Nickel and nickel alloys such as Monel® and Inconel® have excellent corrosion resistance and moderate to high strength. Monel is an alloy of copper and nickel with excellent resistance to salt water corrosion and anti-fouling characteristics. Monel and Inconel are registered trademarks of Special Metals Corporation. 
   Steel       Steel, a commercial iron that contains carbon in any amount up to about 1.7 percent as an essential alloying constituent, is malleable under suitable conditions and distinguished from cast iron by both its malleability and lower carbon content. 
   Steel - Galvanized       Wire rope is made from zinc-galvanized steel wire. 
   Steel - Brass Plated / Copper Clad       Cable wire is brass-plated or copper-clad to improve corrosion resistance, appearance or friction characteristics. 
   Stainless Steel       Stainless steel is chemical and corrosion resistant and can have relatively high pressure ratings. 
   Titanium       Titanium is lightweight and provides high strength and superior corrosion resistance. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary materials.

Features & Approvals
   Features & Approvals       
   Your choices are...         
   ASTM       Products meet American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM) specifications. 
   Compression / Swaged       Compression or swage fittings are attached to the wire rope using a swaging tool that squeezes the fitting until it holds the cable tightly. Balls and socket fittings are often compression fittings. 
   Heat Resistant       Heat resistant cables are designed to withstand higher temperatures and typically have heat-resistant casings, jackets, conduits, or fiber cores. 
   ISO / DIN (Metric)       Products meet International Organization for Standardization (ISO) or Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN) specifications. Typically, these products are specified in metric sizes. 
   MIL-SPEC       Products meet U.S. military specifications. 
   Socket Fitting       Fitting using a socketing method to attach the fitting to the cable. Wire rope or cable is fed into an opening or socket and locked into place using wedge, adhesive compound or swaging. Swaging requires a specialized compression tool.
