G5 Roller Guide Assembly

Cable Guides for changes of direction. When designing a cable guiding system allow sufficient distance between any direction changes. The recommended distance should be a minimum of 20X the cable OD and even longer for speeds greater than 300 fpm. Implementing this design will extend cable life by giving the cable's "memory" an opportunity to shed torsion before making another change in direction.The radiused roller guide consists of muliple rollers mounted in a housing designed for uni-directional or bi-directional cable payout and retrieval. The individual rollers move independently of one another reducing torsion build-up in the cable.
