GENERAL I NFORMAT I ON
Kobelt Manufacturing does not produce a push-pull cable.
There are many push-pull cable manufacturers in the world working
with the same dimensional specifications, therefore, the cables
are all interchangeable. There is, however, a tremendous variation
in the structural quality and design. We recommend the use of low
friction cables with flexible cores, such as those manufactured by
Felsted
®
.
TECHN I CAL SPEC I F I CAT I ONS
Kobelt control heads are designed to be used with either 30
or 40 series cable so please specify when ordering. Our heads and
adapter kits are also designed to accept the clamp type cable ends.
The minimum bending radius recommended by us is 8” (200mm),
the maximum load in push and pull mode on the 30 series cable
should not exceed 50 lbs. (22kg) and the maximum load on a 40
series cable should not be greater than 100 lbs. (45kg).
I NSTAL LAT I ON I NSTRUCT I ONS
A push-pull control system is dependent largely upon the
quality of the cable and the layout of the installation. An excessive
number of bends, especially small radius bends, will make a
control system of this nature stiff and difficult to handle. It must be
installed to eliminate as many bends as possible and also provide
generous radii, especially on multi-station installations. On long
and multi-station cable runs we can provide ball bearing cables to
reduce the friction and lost motion from conventional cables. These
cables are very expensive and Kobelt electronics or air controls, in
many cases, will do the job just as efficiently for less. Kobelt only
recommends the use of ball bearing cables when there is absolutely
no way of installing compressed air, electronics or a wire-over-
pulley system.
POWER ASS I ST UN I TS
Kobelt also provides a variety of hydraulic power assist
cylinders to aid the push-pull cable in controlling clutches and
throttles. For further details regarding servo cylinders and product
numbers 4602, 4605 and 4607, please refer to page 27 or consult
our factory or your nearest distributor.

BAS I C I NFORMAT I ON
ON PUSH-PUL L CONTROLS
The mechanical push-pull control is a very simple and easily
installed system for smaller boats. The equipment controlled by
a system of this type must be relatively easy to operate. Kobelt
provides a variety of hydraulic-actuated power assist units for use
on clutch and throttle applications requiring additional mechanical
force (Part No. 4602, 4605).
We generally do not recommend the installation of more than
two stations with push-pull cables. If the cable runs are relatively
short and straight, it is possible to make a three-station system
work. For a multi-station, single lever control system, a combination
of wire-over-pulley and push-pull with our model 2051 master
control works extremely well (for up to four stations).
The Kobelt single lever control heads 2042, 2043, 2044, 2046,
2047, 2048, 2050 and 2054 are designed to work as a one-station
control only.
The 2080 series and the 2090 series are designed for 2
stations. These controls provide single lever control for clutch and
throttle from two stations and are available in single and twin
engine configurations. This system (Patent No. CDN. 1206642,
1158136; US 4512451, 4280371, Further Patent Pending)
has proven to be a tremendous success due to its exceptional
performance and durability.
We also produce complete systems for wire-over-pulley,
electronic and pneumatic controls, as well as propeller shaft brakes
and electrical control components.
Kobelt products have a global reputation for durability and
performance, and are constantly being improved upon. Most of our
products are patented, evidence of the Kobelt commitment to better
design and efficiency.
We are unique in the marketplace as we are the only
manufacturer providing a non-corrosive product for the marine
environment. Using the best materials for construction and skillful
engineering has enabled us to offer our customers a five-year
warranty.
Kobelt controls are sold through distributors worldwide. For
more information on Kobelt and our complete product lines, contact
your nearest distributor.
